Last week a man from Austin, Texas, was the victim of a hate crime, but unfortunately, it is not a story, which garnered attention in the national news media.
Michael Temple was punched twice, suffered a concussion, and had a temporary loss of hearing as a result of this attack. Due to his hearing loss, he has had to suspend his work as a saxophonist. So what did Mr. Temple do? Well, he is white. According to reports, Mr. Temple was leaving Friends Bar at 1:45 am, heading to his car when he was approached by a group of African-American men. “When I was walking by them the dude said, ‘F Donald Trump’ and then just full force punched me right in the ear,” said Temple.”
Once this group of thugs attacked Mr. Temple, they knocked him to the ground and decided to sucker punch him a second time in the back of the head, and then they ran off. While being interviewed by reporters, Mr. Temple said, “Got back to my car, made it home thank God. That night I couldn’t hear out of my ear at all. The next day I woke up and couldn’t hear out of my ear, so I went to urgent care. She saw there was fluid behind my ear.” After going to the urgent care clinic, Mr. Temple was sent to the emergency room where he was diagnosed with a concussion and made his official report with the Austin Police Department who listed the hate crime as an incident with the label of “assault with injury.”
The attackers motive of hate was clear when they yelled ‘’F Donald Trump’, with Mr. Temple stating, “To me, honestly, I think it’s a hate crime. Why would you say ‘F Donald Trump’ and hit me? If you just hit me and didn’t say anything… but am I associated with Donald Trump because does white mean you’re associated with Donald Trump? I didn’t vote for him, I don’t stand for anything he believes in.”
For 30 years Mr. Temple has been a saxophonist, and because he was attacked for the color of his skin, he is unable to play, and it is not certain if he will make a full recovery. Speaking on his injury and not being able to play, Mr. Temple said, “Playing as a musician, not being able to hear out of my right ear and just because of pressure, it will be painful for me to play. Like I can’t play at all right now. It’s very frustrating because it’s what I love, it’s my hobby, it’s like my passion. To have that taken away from you, hopefully, it’s not permanently.”
Mr. Temple described his attacker as a dark-skinned African American, approximately 6’2 in height, and between the age of 24 -25, and wearing dark clothes.
What is sad about this story aside from the fact that Mr. Temple was attacked because he is white, is the local news in his area covered up the Trump comment in their story all the way in paragraph five of their article. Adding insult to injury, the Austin Police Department is not investigating this as a hate crime.
It is a sure bet that if Mr. Temple was African American and his attackers were white, this would be investigated as a hate crime, Black Lives Matter would be in the streets blocking traffic, and Al Sharpton would be calling for justice. But, since the victim is white in this case, it is not considered a hate crime.
Mr. Temple being assaulted is a typical example of the hypocrisy which exists in the liberal universe. The lunatic left believes that white people should apologize for being white, and if an African-American attacks a white person, the attack is justified because of oppression or something.
Under 8 years of the Obama Administration, race relations in the U.S.A. reached an all-time low. Then when Donald Trump was elected President, the left had a conniption fit because they would no longer have a commander in chief inciting a race war.
Mr. Temple is not the only white person to be attacked simply because of the color of his skin. The simple truth is cases like this are not common knowledge because the liberal media buries these stories because they don’t fit the leftist agenda.
If you live in the Austin, Texas area and have information about Mr. Temple’s attackers, you are urged to call the police.
