On the heels of an incredible display in Richmond on Monday, an act of political violence in The Sunshine State has Americans shaking their heads in disbelief.
For weeks on end the mainstream media hyped the possibility of violence at a Monday rally in Richmond, Virginia promoting the Second Amendment. Police arrested several white supremacists ahead of the event, after being made aware of their plans to cause chaos.
Still, tensions were high, and America watched on nervously, as the rally concluded without so much as a scuffle, let alone the mass arrests and riots some expected. It was a beautiful harmony of the First and Second Amendments that made this possible, instilling faith in our Constitution during this otherwise tumultuous time in our history.
Then, only a day later, the unthinkable occurs.
A construction worker with anti-government beliefs is accused of fatally stabbing his boss, who was a “proud and outspoken American and pro-Donald Trump,” according to an Orange County sheriff’s arrest affidavit.
Mason Trever Toney, 28, was arrested Monday on murder charges in the death of his boss, William Knight, 28.
The fatal stabbing was reported at 10:45 a.m. at a construction site at Exit 254 of Florida’s Turnpike near State Road 528.
The bizarre details of the incident point to a possible political motivation.
Deputies said they found Knight dead next to an excavator with a brand new American flag over the side of his body. Witnesses said Toney was spotted carrying a backpack, which likely was carrying the flag, according to the affidavit.
Witnesses said Toney and Knight were friends outside of the workplace, and Knight picked up Toney earlier in the day. Witnesses said Toney and Knight got into an argument, possibly over their opposing views of the U.S. government.
According to the affidavit, Toney is very outspoken about his beliefs and has said the government is out to get him.
Violence against the MAGA Movement has been on the rise as of late, and will no doubt continue so long as our political atmosphere remains as toxic as it is today.
