A tragic accident at the Stonewall Pride Parade in Wilton Manors, Florida was turned into a political weapon by Democrats and their media supporters. One man was killed while another was injured when the driver of a pickup truck accelerated and ran them over. Within moments of the tragedy and before any information was known, Democrats and the media began treating it as a deliberate attack on the LGBT community. Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis, a Democrat, was at the parade and claimed the truck narrowly missed Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) “by inches” and called the incident a “terrorist attack. “This is a terrorist attack against the LGBT community,” Trantalis told WPLG. “This is exactly what it is. Hardly an accident. It was deliberate, it was premeditated, and it was targeted against a specific person. Luckily they missed that person, but unfortunately, they hit two other people.” At the time Trantalis made the statement, there was no evidence to suggest his claims were in any way true. Wasserman Schultz was reportedly in a convertible getting ready to appear in the parade.
