The 12-year-old boy assaulted by a Boulder woman over a Trump yard sign is speaking out, KMGH reports.
The boy said he was confused as the attack was happening and told Denver7 he is disappointed with people who attack others solely for their political views.
“I like showing what I believe in,” the boy said. “I didn’t want any conflict – I just wanted to show what I believe in.”
The boy, who said he’s now scared to show his support for President Trump, asked for mutual respect and also asked that people stop attacking one another.
Not sure she “confronted” him so much as “used a closed fist to strike the boy in the back of the head and arms four to five times, and scratched him.” https://t.co/318iM3T4IK

By “confront” they mean she punched him in the head and body multiple times and scratched him before trying to steal the sign. She fled on a moped, which tells you a lot. https://t.co/XlF5oJOuQl

I’m not sure that it’s productive in our current heated political moment for journalists to downplay spontaneous political violence against preteen Trump supporters as “a woman turned around to confront the boy.” https://t.co/h0Nh2AgAps

Close your eyes and imagine if a Trump supporter went up to an 11 years old boy wearing a Biden shirt and punched him in the head several times.
Imagine how this story would be reported. https://t.co/h9P0elalwG

“Confront,” unsurprisingly, is the same verb the Denver Post used to describe the actions of left-wing morons who crashed a Gardner event at a hospital last summer.
Apparently in the eyes of the Post, “confront” is just a catch-all term that appropriately describes any action the left takes against conservatives, be it the violent assault of a 12-year-old or crashing a forum on veterans’ healthcare to heckle Republicans on gun control.
While Democrats and their allies in the press try to downplay the story, the Republican National Committee called on Joe Biden and Colorado Democrats to “disavow this act of hatred and violence on a child.”
“The left has become completely unhinged. This behavior is utterly unacceptable and must be denounced by Joe Biden and Colorado Democrats,” said RNC spokesperson Keith Schipper.
To date, neither John Hickenlooper, Jared Polis, Biden, or any other prominent elected Democrat have condemned the assault.
