A 32-year-old Black Lives Matter leader who was honored by the Boston Red Sox during an August “Hats off to Heroes” ceremony, normally used to honor members of the military, was arrested Saturday in Swampscott, Massachusetts for punching an 80-year-old female Trump supporter in the chest.

Our friends at Turtle Boy Daily News have been tracking Ernst Jean-Jacques Jr. and all that he’s been up to since such an honor was bestowed upon him. Turtle Boy noticed the Red Sox honoree was hit with assault and battery on a person 60 years or older, according to The Daily Item newspaper in Lynn, Massachusetts.

Jacques Jr., who was released on $550 bail, can be seen in a video posted by Trump supporter Dianna Ploss unloading a right to the 80-year-old woman.

According to his Facebook page, Jacques Jr. was approached by the Red Sox back in August. The team planned to honor the BLM leader on a night normally reserved to honor members of the military.

The “Hats off to Heroes” campaign, sponsored by John Hancock, is a typical between-inning promotion. A sports team presents a video paying tribute to a member of the military, and fans respond with gratitude. If you’ve attended an athletic event in the last decade, you know the routine.

But things changed for the Red Sox in August. With permission from John Hancock, they decided to go full woke and honor Black Lives Matter leader Jacques Jr. and his “fight against social injustice” instead. Fast-forward 3 1/2 months, and the Red Sox honoree is now on video punching an 80-year-old woman. Whoops.

Go follow Turtle Boy as he tracks the convergence of Boston sports teams and BLM protesters. It’s rather fascinating.

Wow wow wow I don’t even know what to say.Thank you @redsox for the recognition, but I would be selfish to take all…

    • Don’t let this ruin sports for you. There’s still a possibility this was all a misunderstanding. For instance, he’s busy on the street doing BLM stuff and he hears some old lady saunter up and say, “ I dare you to hit me in the face!” Well, he’s not one to not accept a dare, so he complies. And I mean, really lays her out. For the win. Feelin good. Then she wakes up says that she dared him NOT to hit her. OHHHH CRUD. Bad mistake. His bad.
      Not saying this is what happened, but I’m willing to wait to find out for sure that it didn’t happen

  1. This reminds me of Robert “Sheets” Byrd the venerable grand wizard of the KKK leading for decades the Democrat Party and being celebrated in life and death and not afraid to drop the N word on political shows. LOL.
