Over the past week we have written a couple of times about a shocking scene caught on tape in Chicago in which a 49-year old white man, David Wilcox, was beaten by a group of angry black men as onlookers shouted “you voted Trump? you gonna pay for that sh*t," “beat his ass,” and “don’t vote Trump."
Despite numerous acts of violence perpetrated by protesters in Portland, New York, Oakland and Philadelphia over the past week, neither Obama, Hillary or any other democratic leader has come forward to denounce the rioters. To make matters worse, Symone Sanders, a democratic strategist, went on CNN this morning and, when asked about the Wilcox situation, responded by openly mocking him, saying: "Oh my goodness, poor white people! Please!"
Sanders: “The audacity of privileged white people to sit on national television and question if hate crimes are happening, to just flippantly say ‘stop it, it’s not okay,’ and not put any action behind those words, it’s appalling to me. It’s actually appalling.”
“I’m sorry, hate crimes and protesting are not the same things…A hate crime is a crime that is committed against somebody because of their religion, because of what they look like, because of their sexual orientation. That’s not the same thing as protesting.”
Higbie: “What do you say to the people who dragged a poor white guy out of a car and beat him?”
Sanders: “Oh my goodness, poor white people! Please! Oh my– stop. Stop, Carl.”
Higbie: “That’s not protesting! Dragging someone out of their car are beating them is not protesting.”
Apparently, an angry black mob attacking an old white guy in the middle of a street is a considered a "protest" by the left but the reverse is a "hate crime" that should be denounced.

Below are the original videos of David Wilcox being beaten in the middle of the street on Chicago's west side.
Shocking video out of Chicago shows a mob of young black men viciously beating an older white man because he voted for Donald Trump, dragging him through the streets as he hangs out of the back of his car.
The clip shows the thugs repeatedly screaming, “you voted Donald Trump” as they assault the victim from every angle while others steal his belongings.
“You voted Trump,” the mob screams, “You gonna pay for that sh*t.”
Another woman shouts “beat his ass,” while another man is heard laughing before remarking, “Don’t vote Trump.”
A second video of the incident which is dubbed with the “F**k Donald Trump” song, a phrase now being chanted by “protesters” across the country, shows one of the attackers driving away in the man’s vehicle while his hand is still stuck in the window as the car drags him down the street.
“The scene is frankly reminiscent of a lynching,” remarks Chris Menahan.
It is not even clear if the victim was a Trump supporter. Presumably, the mob used that as an excuse to beat and rob him.
YouTube quickly deleted the video, but it has been mirrored on numerous different websites.
If the roles had been reversed, and Trump supporters had been caught on tape viciously beating a black Hillary voter, this would be a national news story right now.
As it is, you won’t see this on CNN any time soon.
Violence and retribution for the election of Trump has proven to be the result of a media-driven attack on his character. For months now, the pundits and columnists have done nothing but tell the population that Trump supporters are racists, etc. and now racially-motivated beatings are taking place in the street without any other pretext or provocation.
Are they proud of themselves yet? And how far will this violence spread?
