While the mainstream media continues to focus on hoaxes around college campuses as millennials act out their disappointment over the election of Donald Trump, an act of political violence perpetrated against a Navy veteran and his family, unsurprisingly, has failed to draw attention or generate any sympathy or concern.

Quite simply – it doesn’t fit the narrative.

Never mind that the narrative – that Trump supporters are knuckle-dragging Neanderthals, Hillary Clinton’s “irredeemable and un-American Deplorables,” who, despite winning the election are inexplicably driven to commit “hate” crimes is not only false, but preposterous, to the liberal media – a redundant, but accurate phrase – it must be true.

Unfortunately, the ransacking and arson that destroyed the home of Navy veteran Matthew Smith is not a hoax – it occurred and the terrifying facts of it point to a hatred of Trump supporters that should be the focus of all responsible reporting.

The kind that doesn’t exist anymore.

Smith’s family was staying with family when the 3 am call came informing them that their home in Plant City, half-an-hour east of Tampa, was on fire.

The fire marshal says it is under investigation as arson, but it is the deliberate and vicious vandalism that is of most concern to the Smiths and to the police.

The home was marked with graffiti inside and out with anti-Trump sentiments, “F-Trump” and “not my prez.”

Even though Smith said, “the place was ransacked. Clothes… papers, important documents thrown everywhere, just torn up. The Christmas tree set up yesterday was knocked down and had been lit on fire. Every piece of furniture was pretty much burned through,” it was the targeted destruction in his children’s rooms that was most disturbing.

Smith’s 8-year-old daughter’s bed and his toddler son’s crib had been set on fire.

Graffiti targeting the children that read,“F- yo kids,” has Smith and his wife, as well as the police worried.

“It’s not what I expected out of America. It should be us figuring problems out together,” says the Navy vet who flew three flags in front of the home: the American flag, the POW flag, and the Navy flag.

His wife, Brittany, pointed out that although the couple backed Trump from the beginning, there was never any public display identifying them as Trump supporters.

It is thought that Facebook posts espousing conservative positions and Trump’s candidacy led the truly deplorable criminals to the Smith home in the weeks before Christmas to commit acts not only of vandalism and arson, but terror.

Now that’s irredeemable.
