Navy Veteran’s Home Torched, Vandalized with Anti-Trump Graffiti
By Joe Newby
On Tuesday, Fox13 reported that the home of Matthew Smith, a Navy veteran living in Florida, was torched and vandalized with anti-Trump graffiti. Fortunately, no one was home at the time.
According to Fox13:
Smith flies three flags in front of his house: the American flag, the POW flag, and the Navy flag.
“We supported Trump from when he started running for office,” says Matthew’s wife Brittany. “We never made it public. We never had a sign in our backyard, so no one really knew we were pro Trump.”
But Matthew says he’s been very active on Facebook, with posts supporting Trump, the Second Amendment, and other conservative causes.
Investigators are looking into possible connections with arsonists.
Fox said that two mobile homes in the area were also hit with anti-Trump graffiti, and according to investigators, someone tried to set one of the homes on fire.
The Smiths, who have two young children, say times have been hard recently. They say their home is in foreclosure and they have no insurance to cover the belongings that burned. Brittany says it doesn’t make sense to her.
“We were always nice to everyone,” she said. “It’s very odd, very odd.”
She added, they were lucky they were away when their home burned. Otherwise, the message someone sent could have been deadly.
Nice people these leftists…
Here’s a video report, courtesy of Fox 13:
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family through this very difficult time. You can see that page here, and we certainly encourage everyone to help this family as much as they can.
