Because what that asshole did had absolutely NOTHING to do with manliness, virility or strength. NOTHING.
Breaking a child's skull should be beyond the limit. Our right wing forum members prove daily that nothing matters to them but their ideology. They don't care who gets hurt. Kids are not even off-limits. But we knew that right after Columbine.

here we go again. I wonder how the assaulter was radicalized into hating and assaulting people who he perceived are "disrespecting the anthem"
Here we go again?


In a news release, Mineral County Sheriff Mike Boone said witnesses identified the suspect as 39-year-old Curt James Brockway. Brockway was apprehended at the fairgrounds, located in the western Montana town of Superior, and charged with assault on a minor — a felony crime.​
The sheriff’s office declined to provide additional information on the alleged assault, including motive. But Taylor Hennick, who attended the event, told local news outlets that she overheard the attack near the Mineral County Fair and Rodeo’s entrance, just as the national anthem began to play.​
The woman said she heard a “pop,” and turned to see the boy writhing on the ground.​
“He was bleeding out of his ears, seizing on the ground, just not coherent,” Hennick told the Missoulian. As startled spectators closed in on Brockway, Hennick said he offered a simple defense for his actions.​
“He said [the boy] was disrespecting the national anthem, so he had every right to do that,” she added.​
Police say the child was rushed to a hospital Saturday, then flown to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane, Wash. KPAX, a CBS-affiliated news station, reports the boy suffered temporal skull fractures in the incident. His mother told the station her son’s ears bled for six hours after the alleged assault.​

If you defend this you don't understand liberty, or its boundaries. I hope the guy gets prison time, and learns some good manners while he's doing time.

No Blame?' ABC News finds 36 cases invoking 'Trump' in connection with violence, threats, alleged assaults.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly refused to accept any responsibility for inciting violence in American communities, dismissing critics who have pointed to his rhetoric as a potential source of inspiration for some citizens acting on even long-held beliefs of bigotry and hate.

no such cases linked to Barack Obama or George W. Bush
