With everything going on in the D.C. swamp with Democrats trying to impeach President Donald Trump, it’s hard for many Americans to actually see real news taking place in other parts of the country.
This is especially true given a case involving a Trump supporter being murdered for his political beliefs has hardly received any coverage from the liberal mainstream media.
In what might be the most shocking news in recent weeks, police say a Florida Trump supporter was stabbed to death by a co-worker after an argument about politics.
Mason Toney, 28, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of William Steven Knight on Monday, according to USA Today.
Knight was an “outspoken American” and “pro-Donald Trump,” according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrest affidavit.
Meanwhile, Toney was described as “anti-government and very outspoken in his beliefs that the government is bad and out to get him.”
The FBI is now involved and working with local authorities to provide any assistance necessary.

Police were told that Knight picked up Toney to drive him to a job site, but that they argued over politics on the way.
At a Florida Turnpike job site in Orlando, co-workers said they heard Knight yelling for help.
When they reached Knight, they saw him being stabbed, and Toney was standing over him with a trowel — a small hand tool used for digging or moving small amounts of material.
The workers told police they threw things at Toney to make him stop but backed off when he appeared to point the weapon at them.
As Toney drove off, the workers who spoke to police said he called them “terrorists.”
When the workers reached Knight’s body, they found a brand new American flag and the packaging that it had been in.
The construction workers told police that Toney had come to work with a backpack, which was not common, according to the affidavit said.

Toney was arrested several hours later and police put out a dispatch that he was “armed and dangerous.”
This is the second story in the last month involving a conservative being murdered in what certainly appears to be politically motivated attacks.
A former Republican lawmaker was found in July 2019 stabbed to death outside of her home.
A trial date for October 2020 in the case involving a woman charged with killing former Arkansas state Sen. Linda Collins.
Rebecca Lynn O’Donnell faces capital murder and other charges in connection with the death of the former Republican state lawmaker.
Prosecutors are now seeking the death penalty against O’Donnell and will additionally charge her with abusing a corpse and evidence tampering.
Prosecutors said O’Donnell was filmed removing security cameras from inside Collins’ home on the last day the former senator was seen alive.
Let that sink in.
A woman has been accused of: (1) stabbing a former Republican lawmaker to death; (2) abusing the corpse of the dead lawmaker; (3) tampering with evidence; (4) and removing security cameras from inside Collins’ home the day before the murder occurred.
It’s pretty sad — and revealing — that both of these stories have been largely ignored by the mainstream media.
