WASHINGTON, DC – Isabella DeLuca, the Outreach Director for the Republicans for National Renewal, was in Washington, DC to show her support for President Donald Trump and his nomination for the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett.
Her views were disliked by members of the Women’s March and allegedly Black Lives Matter, who attacked her because of her opinion.
Isabella DeLuca, a young Trump supporter, was attacked today at the Woman’s March.
She was brutally beaten by the “tolerant” Left.
Her attackers must be brought to justice.

DeLuca alleges that she was in the nation’s capital holding a Trump reelection banner when an older woman attacked her and stole the banner. DeLuca told the National File:
“The first woman was a white older woman – she had glasses on, a glittery bedazzled Black Lives Matter shirt. She looked like she could’ve been a grandma, honestly.”
The altercation started when the woman alleged stole DeLuca’s Trump banner and she tried to get it back. DeLuca alleged that she attempted to retrieve the banner and the older woman began to punch and choke her.
DeLuca claimed that she did not fight back as the woman was much older and she did not want to hurt her, but she was not about to let someone steal her Trump banner. While trying to get the banner back, another woman jumped into the mix and began hitting and punching DeLuca.
After the fight, both attackers fled the scene and DeLuca went to receive medical attention for her injuries. DeLuca alleges that she received head and neck injuries and now has blurry vision.
If the allegations of DeLuca are true, it is yet another shocking example of liberal people who preach equality and understanding of all yet cannot deal with anyone who supports something they do not. One would think that they would be welcoming and just agree to disagree.

The Women’s March was in Washington, DC to protest Barrett’s confirmation hearings. Their march started on a parade route that started near the White House and eventually ended at the National Mall.
The Executive Director for the Women’s March, Rachel O’Leary Carmona, started out the speech stating:
“His [President Trump] presidency began with women marching and now it’s going to end with women voting. Period…The first Women’s March in 2017 was historic. Now, four years later…with 17 days to go [until election day], we’re going to finish what we started.”
Pictures of the event show a sea of women walking around the capital carrying several signs, ranging from women’s rights (which was settled decades ago) to anti-Trump slogans. Organizers for the event are convinced that they are the reason why President Trump will be defeated in November.

Sonja Spoo, the director of Reproductive Rights Campaigns at UltraViolet, said:
“When we vote him out, come 3 November, there is no choice. Donald Trump will not get to choose whether he stays in power. That is not his power, that is our power. We are the hell and the high water. Donald Trump is leaving office, there is no choice for him.”
The march in DC was not the only one that was being held in the country. There were additional smaller ones that were reportedly happening in all fifty states, including in New York.

In Manhattan, roughly 300 people set up around Manhattan’s Washington Square to show their support for Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden. Which is really shocking because large groups are banned in the city because of COVID-19 concerns, but that did not stop people from congregating.
Yvonne Shackleton, one of the women who attended the event, said:
“It’s really important to be here and try to encourage people to vote out Trump and his misogynistic policies, especially now, with Covid, when a lot of people are isolated.”

Witnesses: Man fired gun at group of women and children during South Carolina pro-Trump rally
August 27, 2020
FORT MILL, SC – A barrage of bullets interrupted a political gathering in Fort Mill, South Carolina Monday.
Police said that around 6:50 p.m., gunfire sent people scattering near Interstate 77 and Sutton Road.
The group, a local organization for women, told local news outlets that they were meeting on the side of the road, on a bridge overpass, and holding signs in support of President Donald Trump. The gathering coincided with Night Two of the Republican National Convention.
Fort Mill Police say they arrested 23-year-old Marquise Damarius Asomani shortly after the shooting.
One of the supporters on the bridge told local TV station WBTV that he heard the shots, and described the sound. Matthew Ostrowski said:
”All of a sudden, you know, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang.”
Fort Mill Police say the North Carolina man was both the driver of the car and the shooter. Police say the car passed by the group multiple times, yelling derogatory remarks and obscenities. On the final pass, witnesses said the driver turned from Sutton Road onto the ramp to northbound Interstate 77 while yelling and firing a gun through the open window.
The shots startled the group but police have not reported any injuries.
”It’s sickening. It’s absolutely sickening. It was ridiculous. There were kids everywhere. They drove by really slow and saw everybody, so they knew exactly who was there.”
In a Facebook post, the Fort Mill Police Department described the moment the gunfire started. They said:
“The driver of the vehicle continued yelling and then extended his arm through the window, while holding what appeared to be a handgun. The victims further stated that, at that moment, they heard several shots fired, and the vehicle then proceeded northbound on the Interstate.”
Police say that as the shooting was happening, a South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper was driving up to the gathering, saw the crime and followed the car onto Interstate 77. The trooper found the car, but not the driver, a short time later near Gold Hill Road and Deerfield Drive.
While at the abandoned car, officers said they saw another car trying to leave the area. In it, they saw a man who matched the description of one of the shooting suspects. Troopers tailed the car and eventually pulled it over, finding evidence that led to the arrest of Asomani.
Several members of the group told local media outlets that they believe it was a targeted attack, motivated by their political affiliation.
One of the organizers told WBTV:
“I think it’s sad honestly that we’re showing support for the president and you have to be nervous about somebody coming and doing this.”
On Twitter, the shooting drew attention from civilians and lawmakers.
U.S. Rep. Greg Murphy, R-N.C., tweeted:
“Could you imagine the national media outcry if this would’ve happened to Biden supporters? This person must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

“Three men ‘drove by more than once, making derogatory remarks and yelling obscenities’ at Trump supporters at a calm rally in SC. Then, one of the men started shooting his gun from the vehicle. Did you hear about this in the news? No. Because equity.”

“Trump supporters in South Carolina shot at during overpass gathering including children. Where’s the MSM?”

Police say Asomani is now facing charges for assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, unlawful carrying of a pistol, pointing and presenting firearms at a person, and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.
A judge set his bond at $75,000.
