Man and his girlfriend viciously beaten over their pro-Trump flag in Oklahoma City, police say

News & Politics

Police say that a man and his girlfriend were viciously beaten because they were driving with a pro-Trump flag on their truck in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The troubling incident unfolded Monday morning in the Bricktown area.

A witness told KOCO-TV that the fight was politically motivated and began when the couple arrived at a gas station with a large “Trump 2020” flag attached to the tailgate of their truck.

“The victim stated he and some other people pulled up to a gas pump,” said Sgt. Megan Morgan of the Oklahoma City Police Department.

The report says that there were numerous motorcycle riders at the gas pumps.

“That’s when a verbal altercation ensued between the victim and the suspect,” she said.

The fight resulted in the flag being torn from the truck.

“A full altercation ensued where a victim and a second victim got injured,” Morgan said.

The police said that the man and his girlfriend were beaten so badly that they were bleeding from their nose, mouth, and both eyes. KOCO reported that friends of the couple said on Facebook that they had to receive staples in their heads over their injuries.

Police said that the motorcycle riders at the scene were uncooperative, would not help them identify the attackers, and instead, offered “the usual anti-police rhetoric.”

The clerk at the gas station told the police that they did not have exterior security cameras at the station.

Police have asked for the public’s help in obtaining information on the suspects in the attack.

Political violence appears to have increased across the country as Election Day nears and passions heighten between Americans who disagree with each other. In one bizarre episode from California in June, a man threatened Black Lives Matter protesters with a chainsaw while yelling racist epithets.

Here’s a local news report about the attack:

  1. Not a fan of the “Hate Crime” designation but since it is in place we need to add politically motivated attacks onto the list.

      1. That’s what the bikers were doing, fighting against tRUMP, communism, white supremacy, bad boys & the KKK!
        Did you not read the article?

        1. I have seen hundreds of such stories about Anti-Trump protestors or just plain anti-Trump people who attacked someone over a MAGA hat or Trump 2020 sign. Google it a simple search will flood you with replies some even adults attacking children and teenagers for nothing more than a MAGA hat. I have yet to see one where a Democrat or someone supporting Biden were attacked just for having a hat, a sign or flag. If you have evidence of such please share it. The BLM organizers are avowed Marxist (there are your Communist) as are many of the Antifa who follow along and trigger the riots. The Democrats are now openly proposing Socialist policies. Trump has denounced White Supremacy and KKK and other hate groups dozens if not hundreds of times. Look it up videos of this abound online.

          Sounds like you are the one supporting shuting down free speech and the right to support and vote for who you chose.

        2. You TRUMP haters always use racial propaganda to spread lies. When in fact that you are the ones that are racist. If you don’t like this country. There’s always a boat, plain or train leaving this country. Get on it!

    1. My thoughts exactly; this has become a war and if we cannot expect ordinary citizens who standby to help than we need to go lock and loaded. WE THE PEOPLE need to be prepared to protect ourselves as well as others we may see in need.!

    2. The USCCA says that you should not go ANYWHERE without concealed carry. It’s better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    1. We should have the right to support and vote for any candidate without fear of attack or reprisal.
      It was wrong what happened to those who supported Obama with assaults and cross burnings (KKK and cross burnings should have gone a long time ago, their time in history is over) and wrong for those being attacked now for supporting Trump.

    2. Well,well, well. Now the Obama supporters are being used as an examples of political violence. Gee… I surely don’t remember any specific report about that happening. I wasn’t for OBAMA, but I respected the fact that he was elected President and hoped that he would be a good President. Unfortunately, that really didn’t happen, BUT, no violence like what is happening came to pass. WTF is wrong with our population ??? The violence we are experiencing is so wrong in so many ways. I do have the feeling that when this election is over, this Country will be engulfed in a Socio-Political CIVIL WAR.That thought in itself is extremely disturbing. How many people will be killed over this extreme push for Socialism??? Having served with the US NAVY in Communist/Socialist countries and talking with people that are now living under a Socialist Government, Venezuela for the prime example, the consensus being that Socialism is the worst thing that has ever happened to them. I fear for this GREAT NATION. IGNORANCE IS CURABLE WITH KNOWLEDGE. STUPIDLY IS INCURABLE. God, in your infinite wisdom, please deliver us from the EVIL of which there will be no bounds.

      1. This is the reason I was all for 100% draft of any and all students after H.S. Either into the military or into the Peace Corp. Every able bodied young person should have to serve a min. of two years out of country; no exceptions!!! Let them see the misery socialism creates!
        We also need to get rid of the public school system as it exists today!

  2. It is apparent that the people who attacked and beat them don’t love this country. The couple displaying the flag were clearly exercising their first amendment right. The people who attacked them clearly had the right to disagree with them but when they resorted to violence displayed that they want to live in a communist country.

    Here is a little history lesson for all the people who seem to forget the truth about government.

    Our founding fathers knew the problem with governments having to much control over its people so they wrote the Constitution of the United States of America to protect its citizens from its own government.

    Here are some quotes from our founding fathers.

    “I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” President James Madison.

    “Public opinion: May it always perform one of its appropriate offices, by teaching the public functionaries of the State and of the Federal Government, that neither shall assume the exercise of powers entrusted by the Constitution to the other.” President James Polk

    “But I contend that the strongest of all governments is that which is most free” President William Harrison.

    “That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves.” President Thomas Jefferson.

    “The truth is that all men having power ought to be mistrusted.” President James Madison.

    “The happiness of society is the end of government.” President John Adams.

    “Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” President George Washington.

    1. The problem is: our schools teach that this country is a democracy. Listen to the Pledge of Allegiance, it doesn’t say…and to the democracy; it says “… and to the Republic”

  3. Sounds like the bikers were obviously not Harley-Davidson riders because the story would have a totally different ending. I’m disappointed that people were standing around and were to chicken shit to step in and defend those people. How freaking ignorant are those idiots, they should all be ashamed and be chastised for their ignorance.
