Our own David Harris Jr brought some sunlight to a pretty dark situation that has befallen on his family. For those who didn’t catch the single post that David Jr made on Facebook, David’s father, David Harris Sr, has been diagnosed with the (Disease That Must not Be Named) DTMNBN-19 virus.
Mr. Harris Sr, 64, was admitted to the hospital in Redding, northern California because on top of the DTMNBN-19 diagnosis, he has several underlying conditions. Elderly with underlying conditions is the formula that makes you nervous when a family member gets hit with this particular virus.
David spoke with his father today and said his condition is good, and he should be out of the hospital in the next day or so. Fingers crossed.
That’s great news, but while David Sr was in the hospital, street thugs attacked his car that was parked in the church parking lot where he had left it and stole all four of the brand new tires and rims from the vehicle. David Sr is a pastor. He had just finished preaching Sunday when they called 911 as he could barely stand up on his own. The thieves stole the tires and the rims and left the car up on blocks.
Imagine finding out your father is in the hospital, battling the virus and other health issues, and then learning that someone took advantage of him when he was down. The day David learned about his dad’s car was also David Jr’s birthday. It was too much to accept, so David came up with the idea of sending some MAGA love to his pop, and started a GoFundMe page with the goal of buying his dad a brand new car.
David’s father has been a working man his whole life who taught his son what a hard-working and loyal family man looked like. In other words, he was a great father, and the son now wanted to do something to show his dad some MAGA love during this dark time.
The reason he calls it MAGA love is that his father is not a political conservative, he’s been on the fence about President Trump, because he believes the lies that the Democrat Left and the mainstream news media throw out in public each and every day, including that Trump is a racist. There’s tons of evidence showing the exact opposite, but the Left are masters at manipulating information to take anyone down.
But that’s okay because it’s his right to think and believe whatever he wants. That’s what America is all about, and God Bless him.
So David Jr wanted to see if his Facebook audience with almost 1.7 million followers would show his pop what a little MAGA love would look like… Well, they showed up! The generosity of his loyal audience, mostly Deplorable Trump supporters, the greatest audience I’ve ever had the pleasure to write for [SHAMELESS PLUG], showed up Bigly!
Anyway, David started the GoFundMe page, which you can visit and donate by clicking here. The original goal set was $10,000, but as of writing this, the current tally sits at over $44,000!
For a people to give so generously, to a man they don’t even know, to a man that David Jr had shared with his audience the disagreements they’ve had over politics, proves that MAGA is a movement of love. David Sr. is feeling that love, as is his wife. We may have two new Trump supporters after this, as well as the ripple effects that it may have in their entire family.
