Trump-Supporting Vietnam Veteran Shot During Political Discussion

Written by:

What began as a political discussion between friends at a bar in Cleveland, ended up with a Vietnam Veteran shot and the perpetrator fleeing the scene.

On Monday evening, 60-year-old Paul Jones, Jr., a US Air Force veteran, was engaged in a political discussion with his friend at a local bar. Mr. Jones is a staunch Donald Trump supporter.

As Jones and his friend carried on their conversation, another patron overheard the conversation and decided that he wanted to be a part of it.

“He butted in the conversation,” Jones said, speaking from his hospital bed. “The conversation wasn’t directed at him or to him.”

The man then got so angry that he left, went out to his car and retrieved a gun and returned, firing a shot into Jones’ thigh.

The man then fled the scene and police investigators were searching for him.

“I’m quite sure you have a lot of people having their own opinions. But that doesn’t mean you should hurt somebody because you have your own opinion,” Jones’ mother said.

While there have been a few Trump supporters who have attacked protesters and such, the bulk of attacks have come from protesters against those who support Donald Trump for president.

Earlier in the week, a man attempted to incite a DNC protest crowd to violence against a woman simply because she supported Donald Trump.

Earlier in July, a 68-year-old Vietnam veteran was violently attacked after his conversation about voting for Donald Trump with a gas station attendant in Jacksonville was overheard.

Finally, don’t forget how mobs chased down and beat Trump supporters in June in San Jose.

I don’t see the violence coming from those who support Donald Trump. I am seeing the majority of violence coming from leftist supporting thugs and Communists. What do you think?
