Spanish – The man who shot and killed a supporter of President Donald Trump in Denver, Colorado, is a radical leftist who has openly stated his ideology on social media. He was on the scene as a security guard for a television network, according to Denver police. However, there is no record that he was licensed as a security agent.
Although the Denver Post initially identified the attacker named Matthew Doloff as an activist with the anarchist group Antifa, who was participating in a demonstration along with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, police later disproved this hypothesis. The official version indicates that he was a security guard working for NBC affiliate 9News, according to the Post Millennial.
However, CBS Denver reporter Andrea Flores posted on her Twitter account information she found with the Denver Department of Excise and Licensing. “there is no record for an active licensed security guard now or ever for an individual named Matthew Doloff or Dolloff. If he was operating as a security guard, he was in violation of the law.”

The killing occurred last Saturday when attendees at a leftist protest called the “BLM-Antifa Soup Drive” confronted a group of conservatives who were demonstrating their support for President Trump and the police at an event they called the “Patriot Rally.”
The victim, Lee Keltner, reportedly sprayed Doloff in the middle of the brawl. The alleged security guard responded by shooting him and killing him on the spot. Doloff is in custody and is under prosecution for the crime of first-degree murder.
While the police made it clear that the attacker was not participating in any of the demonstrations, political intolerance continues to be present. The assailant’s background proves this.
According to the Post Millennial, Matthew Doloff wrote a message on Facebook in 2016 against the president’s followers. “Ran into a Trump supporter with a Trump Button on their shirt. Told them i like their im a racist button. They had nothing to say. #fucktrump.”
In another post, he revealed a similar attitude by attacking the police. “FTP” – Fuck the police. While in another message, he published a photo of Trump with the caption, “Fuck this guy.”
So the Denver @9NEWS security shooter, Matthew Robert Dolloff, now arrested for murder has quite the Facebook post history. From F@ck the Police (FTP), to sharing Occupy Denver/ Democrats, to his F@ck Trump.

After learning of Doloff’s combative attitude against the conservatives, many wonder whether or not he is affiliated with Antifa. Others question the TV station for taking an openly anti-Trump security guard to a Trump sympathizer event, if he was indeed working for the station, concludes The Post Millennial.
