82-Year-Old Massachusetts Veteran Assaulted for Holding Trump Sign
“The guy, when he came at me, I had never seen a horror story … that the face was so filled with hate and anger, as his was”
An 82-year-old man living in Fall River, MA, was holding a Trump sign in a public space. A passing car eventually stopped, the young male driver got out and allegedly beat him, kicked him, and tore up his sign.
And the left is now saying we need to disband police departments.

Trump supporter attacked in Fall River: Suspect’s ‘face was so filled with hate and anger’
A man allegedly attacked for holding a Donald Trump sign later spoke out about the assault.
Charlie Chase, 82, said he froze when a man pulled over and started screaming at him.
“The guy, when he came at me, I had never seen a horror story … that the face was so filled with hate and anger, as his was,” Chase recalled.
Fall River police say the assault happened Tuesday evening at the rotary by North Main Street and Airport Road.
Eyewitnesses allege the man was angry because Chase was holding a Donald Trump sign. They told police he screamed at Chase, then ripped the sign in half.
“According to the other fella that was with me, I didn’t know that he had lifted me up, but he apparently lifted me up and flung me down on my back on the ground,” Chase added.
Police identified the suspect as Aidan Courtright, 27, who later turned himself in.
The left’s hatred and anger intensifies by the week. Watch a video report below:

Here’s another from WPRI:
Mr. Chase is already back to holding his sign in public:

On the bright side, Chase got a phone call from Donald Trump Jr.
Tim Weisberg reports at WBSM News:
Assaulted Elderly Trump Supporter Receives Call from Trump Jr.
Just days after being allegedly being beaten down for his political beliefs, an elderly Fall River man received the call of a lifetime thanks to WBSM’s Howie Carr Show.
Charlie Chase, an 82-year-old Air Force veteran who was assaulted Tuesday in Fall River while holding a sign in support of President Donald Trump, was a guest on Carr’s radio program Friday afternoon to recount what happened to him. During his appearance, the retired teacher-turned-political activist received a surprise call of well-wishes from the president’s son, Donald Trump, Jr.
“I just wanted to say I saw your story, and we’re sorry you had to go through that,” Trump told Chase. “We really appreciate the support and stuff like that shouldn’t be going on in America. I just wanted to say thank you for that support, thank you for your steadfast loyalty, for your service to our country. It means the world to us.”
“I have to thank you guys,” Chase replied, audibly becoming choked up with emotion. “You don’t know how much you mean to us. Thank you.”
It’s great that this story has a happy ending, but it doesn’t change what happened. The left is acting out in anger and violence.
Are these the actions of people who think they’re winning?

No, they are not winning and they know it.
They just hide behind their fake polls, but they are desperate, and will become even more so as Election Day approaches.

Do not dismiss them. They are organized and determined. Recall that the Bolsheviks were a small minority.
I expect Ayers will start up a bomb construction teach in soon.
“And the left is now saying we need to disband police departments.”
The left has always wanted to ban local PDs. The Stasi is their model. The only thing new is that this is a new opportunity to exploit.
The Red Guard and the Brownshirts got away with this behavior did they not?
I’ll take the other side of this bet. Money won’t achieve its intended aim, or probably even go to (purported) intended recipients, crime will spiral out of control
Mayor Bill de Blasio
This morning we committed to move resources from the NYPD to youth and social services as part of our City’s budget.
Our young people need to be reached, not policed.
We can do this AND keep our city safe.
Where can I find this midnight’s B-ball game, bro?
We are all in danger, now.
Terrorist groups like Antifa are gunning for the likes of us.
Even Barr-Boehner muttered something about it, before he went back to sleep.
Remember that guy about the same age that ran his van through the Trump tent a few months back? Whatever happened to that guy? Probably nothing.
Cold anger is growing. The left will not like reaping what they have sown.
Surely Comrade Senator Ed Markey will invite Aidan Courtright to the next State of the Union Address. Comrade Senator Fauxcahontas Warren will probably represent ManBunBoy Courtright for his dazzling service to his community and to America.
Aidan Courtright, Fall Rivers’ ManBun BitchBoy of SHAME.
The idiots in Minneapolis want “Community-led Safety” rather than police. Vigilantes?
Revolutionary Watch Committees, whose only task is to find and punish thoughtcrime. Murder, rape, robbery – nah, not their job.

There already are Muslim patrols in some areas.

Trump’s sitting at 42.4% against a man obviously suffering from dementia. Republicans will be lucky to hold on to 45 seats in the Senate.
Yes, Mike, Democrats are “winning”.
That’s what they want you to think, which is why they’re shouting.
‘member when hillary was gonna win?
this guy remembers.
Don’t put any stock in any of that – it’s designed to manipulate you. Remember the polls in 2016…. Same, but even more slanted this time.
Who’s going to tell a pollster that he’s voting Trump? Once he “outs” himself some jerk will just punch him in the head and steal his hat. No, pollsters aren’t worth it . . . but elections are.
AKA “the shy Tory factor.”
Am I going to vote for Trump and against the Democrat-Socialists? Damn straight. Do I answer poll questions when the odds are that the polling organization is working for the Democrat-Socialists? Absolutely not. Always deny intelligence information to the country’s enemies.
“man obviously suffering from dementia.”
And you’re proud of that? Just goes to show, all Democrats are nuts.
There have already been many surprise flips of districts in elections this year, with GOP challengers defeating Dems in traditionally Dem areas. Even they’ve had enough.
This is exactly what the establishment wants. For all of us idiots to fight over meaningless differences between ourselves while they strip away our rights behind the scenes. We are just lapping up the brainwash cool-aid.
To answer the question, no, these are my not the actions of people that think they’re winning. What we’re witnessing is pre-election loss hysteria.
Or they are hoping that we will assume that if they are this violent now, imagine what election day will be like. So that a) they will depress voter turnout for evil Republicans and/or b) it will convince more people to vote by mail, making fraud easier.
If that’s what they’re thinking and hoping, then they really don’t understand Trump supporters in specific, and conservatives in general.
I expect November to be a very ‘interesting’ month.
Communists used to define “peace” as the absence of resistance to Communism. Nothing’s changed, except that more of them now call themselves “progressives.”
To its true believers, Communism is a utopian ideology that justifies any crime against non-believers, thereby providing them with an excuse to attack and subjugate non-Communist societies like America. You can see why they feel perfectly at home with Islamists like Ilhan Whatever-her-real-name-is and Rashida Tlaib. They all assume that after they destroy America, they’ll destroy their erstwhile allies.
I salute the man. Holding a pro Trump sign takes courage. Holding the most vile anti Trump sign? None.
So a police officer pushing and knocking down an elderly man is beyond the pale but a rabid, liberal anti-trumper physically assaulting an elderly man is just fine. What a bunch of fucking hypocrites. Time to take off the kid’s gloves and deal with these terroriwts the way they should have been dealt with from day one. And you can interpret that in any manner you wish.
Note that the vile Dhimmi-crats personify the exact traits that the claim they are allegedly combating — spite, hate, thuggish violence, totalitarianism and infantile rage.
Projection, always & unequivocally…
The Left, or now should I say the “UniParty” (thank you Colin Powell, Kelly, Matt is …military general purge attempt…) has to have someone to hate and/or fear. My wife’s cousin who has been her best relative and long term confidant for over 60 years instantly turned into a raging screaming maniac on the phone when my wife just said she felt Trump was doing a good job. That is it…a few words and nuclear tirade. Hung up on her and that was that.
What has Trump actually done? What has he done that other Presidents haven’t in similar times? Shall we bring up Wilson, FDR, Clinton and Obama for their actions?
It’s as if a vail of darkness has descended over the hearts and minds of so many in this country. It is essentially Satanic in scale. It may be a shock to many but is merely a Revelation.
It was FDR who put all those US citizens in concentration camps, wasn’t it?
(Come on — “concentration” was a “nice” euphemism from day one. It was even a TV game show.)
Where are Trump’s camps?
Not in Minneapolis, NYC, or LA, that’s for sure — those are all Anti-Trump’s camps.
A lot of people need to stop being afraid of who they are and what they think. Thank you to this man
“”And the left is now saying we need to disband police departments.””
Until the guy shows up with the chainsaw. Then it’s “””CALL 911!!!”””
Just start up a chainsaw.
Must see video clip in tweet.
The guy is not encouraging this behavior.
He is pointing out the protesters hypocrisy, calling the police for help while also participating in a protest designed to defund them.
Protesters: “F the police!”
*guy comes at them with a chainsaw*
Protestors: “Call the police!”
The a-hole realized that they had his license number and there were witnesses that were not sympathetic. hopefully this will get him put on the list of mentally unstable people that can not own a gun.
How about we get an attorney general?
You got Maura, isn’t she enough? She’s busy ridding the world of your evil guns, one hand-written addition to her Naughty List at a time. She can’t be bothered with actual violence.
We ought to get a MMA guy to wear a white wig and carry a Trump sign with lots of hidden backup in near by houses or cars. Cameras to get all the action on video.
Your search for “Aidan Courtright” did not match any documents.
They’re just not afraid anymore and no longer even pretend to be impartial. Full on Pravda.
Sounds like a hate crime to me. Let’s get the feds involved; make him lawyer up and spend his inheritance trying to stay out of prison.
If the police would just go on a 90 day vacation, nationwide, we the people would solve all the problems with the communist and the communist enablers such as the msm, the deep state and the democrat party. I estimate somewhere between 30 and 40 million dead and a rebirth for America and constitutional law.
Getting members of the political establishment in good standing to come out in opposition to Trump,
thinking it will undermine him and impact 2020,
just demonstrates how out of touch The Resistance still is.
Keep it up!

Maybe Minneapolis should be finished off? 🙂
I googled young Mr Courtright and found this amusing little statement from his attorney….
That’s right, he is a Trained…De-escalation…Expert….
JUST DON’T PISS HIM OFF…!!!!!!!
The heart of man is deceitful beyond measure and desperately wicked. Who can know it?
Perhaps this guy will learn something about himself.
I doubt that he still has employment when he shows up on Monday. The psychopath should not be allowed around any patient and if he actually has any professional credential then it should be reviewed for suitability.
If payback is a bitch then this punk should just go ahead and kill himself before he and Satan do any more damage against humanity.
This story does not have a happy ending, yet. If Aidan Courtright gets a substantial prison sentence, then it will have a happy ending.
Happy ending? WTH???
There are people out there who are insane. They have little to no self control and no anger management skills. They physically attack anyone who is different from them or expresses a different viewpoint. No attempt at rational discourse, simply a physical attack. Be careful out there.
Oh, assaulted in Fall River. I misread the headline as arrested in Fall River for holding a Trump sign. Guess that’s not until next year.
