Trump supporter victim of hate crime in Montgomery County (Photo)

Montgomery County Police are investigating an incident of vandalism in Silver Spring they believe is "bias-based." On Sunday morning, a Donald Trump supporter in the Four Corners neighborhood in Silver Spring awoke to find a swastika had been spray painted on his front storm door, and his American flag had been stolen. Police responded to the home in the 200 block of Williamsburg Drive at 7:22 AM.

A preliminary investigation determined that this was the third time the Trump supporter's home had been targeted. The home was previously vandalized on October 16, police said, and a Trump-Pence sign was stolen from the front yard of the property in late October.

This incident shows the danger of jumping to conclusions, as the Montgomery County Council has, in regard to a handful of hate-based vandalism incidents since the election. With no evidence, and not a single suspect having been arrested and questioned, our County Council has alleged these incidents were inspired by Trump and/or perpetrated by his supporters.

The Council has now been wrong twice in the last week; the only physical hate violence in the County so far has been directed against a Trump supporter, during a student protest last Wednesday in Rockville. And now in Four Corners, the only case where we have a clear motive, all evidence again points to anti-Trump forces.

Fortunately, the police are not taking a political approach, and are examining all cases objectively in their investigations. In a statement, detectives said they believe the homeowner's support for Trump is the motivation for the thefts and vandalism in the Four Corners case.

Anyone with information about these thefts or the vandalism incidents is asked to contact the 3rd District Investigative Section at 240-773-6870.  For those who wish to remain anonymous, Crime Solvers of Montgomery County is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for any information that leads to the arrest of the suspect(s).  Tipsters can call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).

I agree -- not enough coverage has been given to the only case of hate-based violence in MoCo, and it's sad to think it may be because the victim is a Trump supporter.

In this incident you mention, the only positive sign is that MoCo Police actually put out a press release about it.

Did you hear about the white nationalist group at Maggiano's in Friendship Heights. Few articles I've read about it mention that the group couldn't be denied from eating there anyway, under DC's Human Rights Law (assuming they weren't disruptive of course).

Everyone is demonizing the restaurant when they shouldn't be.

5:57: Wasn't there Friday night, but I do enjoy dining at Maggiano's.

Clearly a false flag incident. The guy either did it himself or had Trump supporting friends do it. Left wing fanatics don't paint swastikas on things, that's what anti-semites do to synagogues.

Robert: I find it odd that your and some of your supporters main comments about the incident at Maggianos is to focus on and defend the restaurant's and the National Policy Institute's (NPI's) civil rights. NPI is an unabashedly white supremist, neo-nazi organization. I am not faulting Maggianos and I'm not condemning freedom of speech. However, I am questioning why you and some of your blogging supporters are defending NPI's rights and NOT condemning their statements and policies or their use of a Nazi salute for example. As a responsible journalist and opinion leader, you should be categorically condemning the NPI, their leaders and everything they stand for. To be blogging on this topic only about restaurant's civil rights and whether or not Maggianos is a good restaurant, seems to miss some big points about this story. Why won't you make a statement categorically opposing NPI's views, ideology and actions? To comment on everything, but this, makes many wonder whether you support these.

How does a restaurant screen for political views? I wouldn't want those extreme folks in my restaurant, but how to screen them?

Anonymous said...

@7:15am I don't like what NPI stands for, but as far as I can tell, they are just expressing their views peacefully and not resorting to violence. To me, the main issue is how groups are seeking to stop people from meeting to discuss their views, just because they don't agree with them.

This of course is an extreme case. I think a more common case which has been all too common lately, is controversial speakers having their invitations revoked to speak at college campuses, due to student protest. What happens is some campus group like the Young Republicans invites a speaker to campus, and other groups protest that the speaker shouldn't be allowed to speak at all. Never mind that the speech is not a mandatory event, and no one is forcing students to attend it. They just don't want anyone to hear views that oppose theirs. This from academia, the place where we should be most open to exploring viewpoints of all sides, and debating them intellectually.

So it's with this background that I have become a strong supporter of not suppressing speech that is expressed non-violently and non-criminally. No, I'm not a white nationalist and I'd probably disagree with just about everything they'd say, but I do strongly support their right to say it in a peaceful manner.

And why, by your standards, isn't it jumping to conclusions that (1) The Silver Spring incident was an anti-Trump "hate crime" and (2) the other incident(s) were carried out by "anti-Trump" forces? BTW, why not also report on what the Silver Spring "victim"'s views were that might have elicited a "hate crime", if in fact one was perpetrated? What about him would justify calling this a "hate crime", as opposed to an ordinary crime? What group was he a party to that might have elicited such hate? Why?

Anonymous said...

@7:46 AM. I too completely support free speech. That same right to free speech applies to people protesting against what NPI was saying and the way that they were acting. It also applies to those opposing a speaker at a university campus. I do believe that universities should be open to speakers espousing multiple and diverse viewpoints. I also think universities have rights to place rules and requirements on guest speakers, as long as they are applied fairly and uniformly. If you were referring to the recent incident at U of Maryland, my understanding is that the speaker in question wanted to be treated differently than all other speakers.

Yep, just like you.

This entire Robert Byrd diversion is totally absurd. The number of racist hate groups supporting your #1 hero Trump ranges in the hundreds. The National Policy Institute, which it seems you're a member of, is praising him as the next Hitler. David Duke who is 101% KKK/racist/bigot fully supports Trump.

Any argument trying to paint the Democratic party (in comparison to the Republican Party) as racist is totally idiotic and DOA. There's racism in every corner of society and every political group has their bigots, but the Repub. Party is a hotbed for them.

Anonymous said...

Nice try. And a pathetic one at that.

Yes, Byrd was a member of the Klan. Even worse, as he wrote in his 2005 book, he formed a chapter of the domestic terrorist organization in the 1940s. Then, Byrd went into politics. Several times during his 57 years in Congress, Byrd’s Klan connection threatened to upend his career. But here is where Byrd is no Duke. He admitted his mistake and atoned for it in public and in policy.

In his memoir, Byrd wrote, “It has emerged throughout my life to haunt and embarrass me and has taught me in a very graphic way what one major mistake can do to one’s life, career, and reputation.”

This and other words of contrition made it a no-brainer for Democrats like presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton to openly mourn the man who had been the longest-serving member of Congress when he died in June 2010. “Robert C. Byrd led by the power of his example,” then-Secretary of State Clinton said.

Because of Byrd’s evolution on race and equality, the NAACP issued a statement praising him at the time of his death. “Senator Byrd came to consistently support the NAACP civil rights agenda, doing well on the NAACP Annual Civil Rights Report Card,” said Hilary O. Shelton, director of the NAACP Washington bureau and senior vice president for advocacy and policy. “He stood with us on many issues of crucial importance to our members from the reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act, the historic health care legislation of 2010 and his support for the Hate Crimes Prevention legislation.”

I guess I missed Duke's "renunciation".

Byrd was mysteriously and conveniently absolved of crimes you simply can't be absolved from.

Dear Robert: May I ask what in my message could have possibly caused you to respond with the mature retort: "You're the idiot who talked about the group, not me". I have never called you names, I have sometimes agreed with your positions, and sometimes questioned or disagreed with them, but I have never resorted to name calling. I don't think it makes me an idiot to raise awareness about what a group like NPI stands for. Pretending they don't exist or that I don't know what they stand for would make me complicit and perhaps an "idiot", especially given their connection to Stephen Bannon, the new administration's Chief Strategist. I would have expected "one of MoCo's leading journalists" and a strong Trump supporter to be aware of NPI and its views. Taking you at face value, I am astonished that you weren't. I find it amusing then, that after apparently making you aware of NPI and their views and your renunciation of these views, your response would be to call me an idiot for raising your awareness. The 7:52 "Idiot"!!!

1:50: I think after badgering me on a topic separate from that of this article, posting false libelous statements about me & groups you fantasize I support or defend, that "idiot" qualifies as a gentlemanly response.

No, I - like most Americans - had never heard of this group before last weekend. Their use of Nazi salutes and specific term "lying press" raises many suspicions after those talking points were set up in advance by the media and anti-Trump folks. And then these guys show up with Tila Tequila and it was a bravura acting performance indeed. As a skeptical journalist, my Spider Sense is certainly tingling that there is something fishy about this.

Why would a group supposedly trying to put a modern, mainstream face on white nationalism make a Nazi salute, thereby instantly wiping out whatever respectable appeal they had sought to project? Come on. It's just not believable.

Robert Dyer said...

6:18: No, it's baffling to someone like me, who has been through the dangerous neighborhoods of D.C. and Baltimore, both of which have been led by Democratic officials exclusively for decades.

Secondly, the Trump supporter targeted in this case may well have been Jewish. We don't know, but again, there is nothing inherently "false flag" about this incident.

Robert: Your inaccurate denunciations of Robert Byrd and the Democratic Party on racial issues are offensive.

See @7:11's comment on Robert Byrd. Robert, your effort to tar Byrd is despicable. Yes, Byrd was an active member of the KKK during his early years, but he renounced racist stances early in his career and thereafter committed himself to supporting civil rights.

The Democratic Party has consistently championed racial equality since Lyndon Johnson's Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act, both of which were signed into law over 50 years ago. As you should be aware, the Republican Party thereafter absorbed Southern Democrats who favored segregation, an effort that commenced during the 1968 presidential campaign as Nixon's "Southern strategy." Nixon's approach has remained a constant of Republican strategy to date.

Robert, I have appreciated your accurate reporting on local planning and zoning issues, especially Westbard. It's sad to see you undercutting your credibility by fomenting baseless attacks on the Democratic Party and the late Robert Byrd. You have every right to be a member of the Republican Party and to support it. But you are not entitled to distort history and manipulate facts to support your political views.

Robert Dyer said...

2:45: I doubt many people in enlightened and educated Bethesda, Maryland are offended by my condemnation of Robert Byrd's history with the KKK. It's important to remember that Byrd didn't just show up a rally. Byrd was an "Exalted Cyclops" - a formal leader in the KKK, and a rank equivalent of being the county or state chair of a political party.

I have no interest personally in lambasting the Democratic Party for the racism in its history. But the recent effort by some MoCo elected officials to smear Republicans as "racist" and perpetrators of "hate crimes," combined with the nonsense repeatedly posted by one commenter on this article, requires a full examination of history.

The reality is there has been racism on both sides.

The KKK was, in fact, a paramilitary terrorist wing of the Democratic Party. It killed people. I'm not sure how someone can be a leader in that, and then simply "denounce" it, and move on to glory as a Senator, or even a dogcatcher, for that matter. I've noted that David Duke has renounced his past with the Klan. But he remains a pariah. The only explanation can be that the Republican Party has condemned Duke for decades, while the Democratic Party excused and enabled Byrd to take office, aided by his entering politics when national ideas on race were much different. In order to clear the taint from their party, it is essential to stress a fake moral conversion by Byrd - but, again, how can a Klan leader be absolved with an apology of convenience for his own personal gain?

Whatever a few people may have discussed and strategized about a "Southern strategy" in the GOP did not involve killing people! Can anyone name a current Southern GOP governor in 2016 who is a "racist"?

Moreover, the Democratic Party had its own race "strategy" in the 1960s, aside from being forced to embrace racial equality, after finding itself on the wrong side of history. If you look at the percentage of two parent African-American households historically, it wasn't tremendously less than white households - until the Great Society. The line then plunges on the graph, as black families were destroyed by the "Is there a man in the house?" test for receiving government benefits.

It was Republicans who drove the Civil Rights Act of 1964 through. A greater percentage of Republicans in Congress voted for it than did Democrats. It was an extension of earlier GOP civil rights measures passed during the Eisenhower years. Look at the roles of Everett Dirksen and Bill McCulloch in getting the Civil Rights Act through, ending segregation.

A few more "facts":

Black students in MCPS are more likely to be suspended than black students in Texas - in 2016! The MoCo political machine has opposed every black candidate for U.S. Senate since 2006. We will now have an all-white-male delegation to Congress from Maryland. It's a national embarrassment. And the Democratic sheriff of Howard County was just ousted this year - this year!! - for racist and anti-Semitic statements he allegedly made.

Again, unlike some, I do not set out to smear people of one political party because some members of it have engaged in racism today or in the past.

But I will not hesitate to respond with facts, when I or my party are falsely attacked and accused of such things. There are many things to not be proud of in politics on both sides. Rather than attack each other, it would be far more productive for Republicans and Democrats to cooperate on moving the country forward.

Anonymous said...

Over a year later, and you still can't figure out how to compare fractions and percentages in those reports on the disparity of suspensions for African-American students?

http://robertdyer.blogspot.com/2015/11/black-students-more-likely-to-be.html?showComment=1446842557219&m=1

The disparity in MCPS is just under double, whereas in Texas it's more than triple. Anyone who is capable of basic arithmetic understands that the latter rate is far greater than the former.

Robert Dyer said...

7:31: Over a year later, and you're still lying about it. Now you're not only making fake claims, but you've actually reversed it! Black students are 3x more likely to be suspended than white students in MCPS. In Texas, they are only twice as likely to be suspended.

I know it just enrages you that the racism of your infallible MoCo political cartel is being exposed, and that's why I love that statistic.

Check your privilege.
