while posting signs for a Republican candidate, Sorry, Mr. Malhi, Republicans don't believe in hate crimes

The Hill: A Sikh man says he was attacked and told to “go back to [his] country” in an incident police are now investigating as a hate crime. Surjit Malhi, 50, told Sacramento’s CBS13 that he was beaten by two men who also allegedly spray-painted his truck with hate symbols, while he was out posting campaign signs for Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.)

Malhi told CBS that the men threw sand in his eyes and brutally beat him in the head, shoulders and neck, while shouting: “Go back to your country!” “It’s very scary you know,” he said. “[I thought] they were going to shoot me.”

Malhi told the station that his turban softened the blows, and may have saved his life. CBS reported that Malhi is a well-known member of the community, has raised thousands of dollars for charity and is a politically-involved, active supporter of the local Republican Party.
