The violence against Trump supporters is getting worse!
When are police and prosecutors going to prosecute these violent acts as hate crimes?
LOS ANGELES – An avid Trump supporter and a man that has been vocal and active in the conservative movement was stabbed nine times near a Santa Monica bar Saturday night following a Trump rally, reports The Red Elephants.
Antonio Foreman, who is best known for providing security detail to well known political reactionary Tim Treadstone, AKA Baked Alaska, is in the ICU at Ronald Reagan UCLA medical center suffering from multiple stab wounds including a slash across the face and neck.
On Saturday, Foreman attended a free speech rally hosted by a media company called ‘Based in LA.’ Following the gathering Foreman and Kyle Chapman, who is better known as ‘Based Stick Man,’ visited a local Santa Monica bar together. Upon leaving the bar, the two parted ways toward their own vehicles. As Tony approached his vehicle, another car rammed through the parking gate vehicle barrier into the lot, directly smashing into Tony’s car. Foreman got out of his truck to exchange insurance information when the attack occurred.
According to Formeman who is in stable condition currently, as soon as he exited his vehicle two Armenian men involved in the collision met him angrily and commenced to shout racial slurs at him. Foreman says that the last thing he heard before blacking out was “you’re getting the shank white boy.” Foremen also says that they called him a “cracker” multiple times before the attack.
On the back bumper of Forman’s truck there is a ‘Molon Labe’ sticker which means ‘come and take it’ in Greek, along with a multitude of other patriotic emblems. Foreman believes the collision was intentional.
Foreman sustained a total of nine knife wounds, four on right his flank, one on chest, two on left side, one across his face and one on his neck. Several of them penetrated deeply, putting his life in immediate danger and warranted an emergency twelve hour surgery, which he has undergone already. The doctors say that he may require one more additional surgery before leaving.
Treadstone and David Feiner of The Red Elephants are with him currently bedside at the hospital. Treadstone has been in direct contact with the LAPD detective on the case and has told The Red Elephants police have already detained the two assailants who are being held on a one million dollar bond. Police do not believe the attack was politically connected at this time. It does appear however though that this may have been racially motivated given the slurs the attackers were shouting before Foreman was stabbed.
Edgar Khodzhasaryan, 30 of Glendale, and Arsen Bekverdyan, 31, of Burbank are the two in custody currently being charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon according to the Los Angeles district attorney’s office.
