You Should Know This About That Burning Limo

You should know whose limousine those rioters in Washington, D.C. burned after President Trump’s inauguration. It’s not some establishment Republican, or country club cis-genered white person born with a silver spoon.

The limo is owned by a company, National Chauffeured Services, which in turn is owned by a Muslim immigrant named Muhammad Ashraf. Ashraf spoke with Red Alert Politics (which is owned by the same group as the Weekly Standard and the Washington Examiner).

Ashraf is no fan of the new president, but probably appreciates Trump more now that he’s seen what the people who are supposedly fighting for his “rights” think of him.

“I have a different point of view,” Ashraf told Red Alert. “I did not agree with many of the things he said, but that still does not give me the right to go and affect someone’s livelihood.”

As 58-year-old driver Luis Villarroel (whose name seems different from Smith or Roberts, and who probably needs his limo to make a paycheck) dropped off his client, the rioters turned their sites on his limo. They pounded on the car and threw stones and bricks at him. He suffered minor cuts (and has a bloody picture to prove it) on his hands and arms.

Ashraf said he’s been in business for over 25 years, and “this is the first time this has happened.” If his insurance won’t cover the loss–and “riots” are usually lumped in with “acts of God” and “civil insurrection” as non-covered perils–he’s out $70,000.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover expenses, and Ashraf has promised any unused funds will be sent to charity.

Liberal agitators don’t care who is harmed, and who has to pay for it. Ashraf said he’s much more pleased at the way the Women’s March was handled. “I really don’t think we need to take this [violent] route,” he said.

While Ashraf and his employee should be taken care of, we know that the rioters are about to get what they deserve also: up to 10 years in prison.
