Left-wing Hate Crime

By Gary L. Bauer

Christopher Marquez was attacked last week after an encounter with Black Lives Matter activists at a Washington, D.C., McDonald's. They entered the restaurant and harassed him as he was eating. When he left, they attacked him, knocked him unconscious and robbed him.

D.C. police have yet to label the attack a hate crime, but Marquez has no doubt. "I believe this was a hate crime and I was targeted because of my skin color."

Marquez is a war hero. He received the Bronze Star for his service in Iraq at the Battle of Fallujah. His heroism is memorialized in the "No Man Left Behind" statue at Camp Pendleton.

The left's constant stoking of racial tensions is leading to violence against innocent people -- the very thing the Black Lives Matter movement claims to oppose. Where is the condemnation from the media, the Obama Administration, leading Democrats in Congress or those campaigning for president?
