A couple of days ago we wrote about the 49-year old Chicago resident, David Wilcox, who 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.” Today the battered Wilcox spoke to the Chicago Tribune to give more details on the events surrounding the assault. In addition to being beaten mercilessly, Wilcox was also drug down the streets of Chicago’s West Side at 70-80 miles per hour as he attempted to prevent the mob from stealing his vehicle.
“I stopped and parked. And I asked if they had insurance, and the next thing that I knew they were beating the s— out of me,” Wilcox said Thursday.
“They were beating me to have me let go of the car,” Wilcox said. “The guy went to 70 and 80 mph. If I let go, I was dead. He slowed to 45. … He tried to push the door open. …So he stepped on it again.”
“He stepped up back to 70 and 80, swerved again,” Wilcox said. “The wheels on my side left the ground, up to 2 inches. … Then he slowed down. I was looking at oncoming traffic. He probably slowed to about 45. God was watching over for me. I rolled about five or seven times into the oncoming traffic lanes.”
“There was a parole officer with a gun and bulletproof vest,” he added. “He turned left, and he told me just sit down and wait for the police to come.”
Wilcox filled out a police report, but no one was reported in custody Thursday afternoon. Police said they were investigating the beating and who made the “politically divisive” statements in the video.
Wilcox believes the attackers, who were black, were egged on by the bystanders. “They intensified it, aggravated it and made it more than it was.”
Ironically the attackers didn’t even know that Wilcox was a Trump voter at the time of the attack. That said, he confirmed his support of Trump to the Chicago Tribune which he attributed to his view that Trump would be better for the economy.
“He’s gonna bring back the economy. I believe he’s gonna be the one to protect the (nation). I know he doesn’t speak politically correct sometimes, but 95 percent of the country doesn’t”
Somehow we suspect if this event were reversed and a white Trump mob was video taped beating a black Hillary supporter the mainstream media would pay a little closer attention. That said, we won’t hold our breath waiting for CNN and MSNBC to cover this one.
