Co-founder of Students for Trump arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault

The co-founder of Students for Trump was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault in North Carolina on Nov. 21, CBS News reported. Ryan Fournier, who formed the pro-Donald Trump group in 2015, was charged with assault on a female and assault with a deadly weapon. 

Police reports stated that Fournier allegedly grabbed a woman's arm and pistol-whipped her in an altercation earlier this month. He was arrested but released on bail.

The 27-year-old is set to appear in court on Dec. 18, but has waived his right to a court-appointed attorney, though it's unclear whether that means he'll be unrepresented. The woman has been identified as Fournier's girlfriend, the New York Post reported.

The pistol reportedly used was a 9MM Sig Sauer P229 handgun, but the woman sustained only a minor injury. Fourneir rose to prominence in 2015 after founding the group Trump during his first successful bid for the presidency.

The young man was a student at Campbell University in North Carolina at the time and became an outspoken proponent for then then-candidate. Trump spoke at a Students for Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona, in June 2020 during his reelection campaign.

Meanwhile, Fournier's star continued to rise, leading him to form another group, Radical Alert. It's been labeled as radical for its right-wing mission that's dedicated to "exposing" hate that has "taken over American college campuses."

This incident comes on the heels of Students for Trump co-founder John Lambert's conviction for wire fraud. In May 2021, Lambert was sentenced to 13 months in jail for stealing money from his marks by pretending to be an attorney.

In addition to the jail time, Lambert was also forced to return more than $46,000 and pay another $21,000 to his victims in restitution. Unfortunately, the fate of these two apparent criminals will be used by the leftists in the media to smear Trump.

If anyone in Trump's orbit do anything wrong, it's presented as another thing for which to blame the former president, even for people as far removed from him as men like Lambert and Fournier. However, they're never as eager to do the same to Democrats.

One of the most egregious examples of this double standard comes from the way corruption in the Black Lives Matter organization was handled. The powerful organization gained prominence and huge sums of money following the death of George Floyd in 2020, the Associated Press reported.

As if to gain indulgences for the perceived sins of the past, white liberals eagerly forked over money to the movement. Government officials, academic institutions, corporations, and many gullible people alike blindly supported the movement that was founded on a lie.

Meanwhile, BLM leader Shalomyah Bowers was allegedly bilking the foundation out $6 million to build a residential compound in Los Angeles. Some contend that waste and fraud were rampant in the entire organization.

Despite evidence that BLM was one big grift, leftists have not denounced the group or its leaders. The people and politicians who publicly supported the movement are not painted with the same brush by the media in the way that Trump is when his supporters go off the rails.

If Fournier is indeed guilty, he deserves every minute of the maximum punishment allowed by law for the sake of his victim. However, the flack Trump is about to endure for any association with him is the part that is unfair and outrageous.
