Navy Vet's Home Torched, Vandalized With Anti-Trump, Anti-White Graffiti

As reported by Fox 13 News, anti-Trump extremists displayed the left's epic intolerance by destroying a Navy veteran and Donald Trump supporter's home in Plant City, Florida. The home was gutted, set aflame and vandalized with anti-Trump and anti-white graffiti; "f*** Trump" and the racial slur "cracker" were among the choice words displayed inside and on the exterior of the now-destroyed house. 

Matthew Smith believes he, his wife and their two small children were targeted because he expressed his conservative, pro-Trump and pro-Second Amendment political views on social media. 

"We supported Trump from when he started running for office," said Brittany Smith, Matthew's wife.

Aside from Matthew's Facebook posts, she says the family never took their Trump support public. "We never made it public. We never had a sign in our backyard, so no one really knew we were pro Trump," she said. 

Thankfully, the family was away house-sitting for a relative at the time of the attack. Smith was informed of the devastating news via a 3:00 a.m. telephone call from a neighbor who first called 911 after seeing the pouring of smoke coming from the back of the home. 

"It's not what I expected out of America," Smith told Fox 13. "It should be us figuring problems out together."

Possibly making Smith's home more of a target, the veteran displays three flags in front of his home: Old Glory, the POW flag, and the Navy flag.

As reported by The Daily Wire, Florida has been stricken by a series of anti-Trump and anti-white hate crimes in recent days, and investigators are looking into possible connections to this most recent attack on the Smiths. 

In Mango, mobile homes were vandalized with anti-Trump graffiti and one vacant home was set on fire. In Hillsborough, "kill white people" and "black lives matter" graffiti was found along a major highway, homes and businesses. 

As noted by Fox 13, the Smiths say they have recently fallen on hard times: "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."

A Go Fund Me account has been started in support of the Smith family.

"Yesterday my brothers [sic] house was broken into," reads the Go Fund Me caption. "My brother is ex military and has military flags flying in front of his home. People broke into his home and vandalized and torched the inside of his home. He has 2 kids. All of their clothes and furniture were burned. They were not home when this happened but there were 'F trump' tags all over his home. We are 26 days from Christmas. Please help my brother."
