What is this nation coming to?
We are devolving into some dystopian, politically-charged mayhem the likes of which we haven’t seen in over 14 decades. We’re allowing the mainstream media to pit us against one another, as if we’re sports fans and the big game this November is Team R versus Team D.
And, for the record, when we only want one half of the country to be successful, none of us are truly successful.
This sort of animosity creates conflict, however, and conflict creates opportunities for the media to sell advertising space. And so here we are, in a nation where 12 year old children are being assaulted over politics.
Boulder police are investigating a report that a 12-year-old boy was assaulted over a President Donald Trump yard sign.
According to Boulder police, the assault occurred at 3 p.m. Monday at Folsom Street and Glenwood Drive.
Police said the boy was riding his bicycle with the Trump sign when a woman on a moped saw the sign and turned around to confront the boy.
Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Aulabaugh said the suspect drove up to the boy and said something to the effect of “you want something to look at,” and used a closed fist to strike the boy in the back of the head and arms four to five times, and scratched him.
The boy told police the woman then tried take the sign before leaving the scene.
With two months remaining until the nation heads to the polls, we can only imagine that this sort of despicable behavior will continue to occur.
