'No Man Left Behind' Marine Attacked by Black Lives Matter Thugs

On November 14, 2004,  embedded photographer Lucian Read captured one of the most iconic photos of the Iraq War during the Battle of Fallujah. First Sergeant Brad Kasal of Weapons Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, had taken seven 7.62×39 bullets and more than 40 pieces of shrapnel from grenades leading a rescue of Marines pinned down in a firefight that later became known as “Hell House.” Kasal was awarded the Navy Cross for his heroism.

The photo of Marine lance corporals Chris Marquez and Dane Shaffer carrying the wounded but indomitable Kasal from the fight was a graphic reminder that Marines take care of one another and don’t give up.

The photo became the basis for “No Man Left Behind,” bronze sculpture by Wyoming artist John Phelps, placed at the Warrior West site at Camp Pendleton. A similar statue is now at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.

Everything about the photo and the statues it inspired show the best traits of Americans… and so it was incredibly disgusting that one of these three Marines was just knocked unconscious and robbed in a race-based attack by a mob of Black Lives Matter thugs just blocks from the White House.

A Marine vet who served in Iraq and Afghanistan became the target of an assault while eating at a McDonald’s Friday night in northwest DC. Metro PD is now investigating the incident and looking for five suspects between the ages of 16 and 21.

According to the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF), the group of teens started harassing Christopher Marquez while he was eating — surrounding his table and asking him: ‘Do you believe black lives matter.’ They also started calling him a racist.

“I believe this was a hate crime and I was targeted because of my skin color,” Marquez told The DCNF. “Too many of these types of attacks have been happening against white people by members of the black community and the majority of the main stream media refuses to report on it.”
