Ashton Hess, the 17-year-old who was attacked by a pair of anti-Trump goons in Seattle, was a guest on my nationally-syndicated radio show the other day.
Ashton and his family were on vacation when one of the thugs smacked him in the head and another grabbed his “Make America Great Again” ball cap.
Ashton told me that teenage Trump supporters routinely find themselves targeted by the Left.
“Every time I wear a Trump shirt at school, I am always prepared to be abused and hated by the leftists at my school. Knowing that teachers may out of their way and grade you with bias because of your views is also a factor,” he said. “I do not wear the shirt for extra attention, or confrontation, but I wear it because I support our president, and why the hell shouldn’t I be able to wear my Trump shirt?”
Charles Thorngren, the chief executive officer of Noble Gold Investments, was listening to my radio program and was so impressed by Ashton’s comments that he wanted to honor the young man.
“Noble Gold Investments wants Ashton to know that it is still acceptable to be a proud American,” Thorngren told me. “As a veteran, I solemnly swore that i would support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I would bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I would obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me. So help me God.”
So he decided to send Ashton a collection of the official President Trump 2020 Freedom Coins – a beautiful silver coin that depicts the president’s image along with a list of his accomplishments.
“Ashton was demonstrating the rights I served to protect for all Americans,” Thorngren said. “I have never seen a conservative snatch the clothing off anyone wearing a Hillary Clinton hat or shirt. So in a time where liberals believe they are the only ones that are afforded freedom of speech, we at Noble Gold will do all we can to support and reaffirm those like Ashton who have been exposed to the ugliness of the liberals.”
Thorngren said it’s important for conservatives to support young men and women who choose to stand up against the bombardment of the liberal agenda.
“This was just a small way that we could help do that,” he told me.
