MAGA: An Excuse For Leftist Hate
26 Oct 2019
Leftists are getting more violent, and I believe that it will continue to rise as the right continues to thwart their “progress.” What started as calling supporters of President Trump slanderous names, has escalated into physical violence. And they’re simply being emboldened by the lack of Leftist leadership (Democrat politicians) condemning their actions. Let’s take a look at a couple of highlights from this past summer, when people simply wear a hat that says MAGA, Make America Great Again.
A Vans shoe store employee was fired after he allegedly cursed at a 14-year-old customer because the teen was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.
I love the way they use the word alleged in the news story when in the Twitter video the man admits to telling the kid to “F**k off.”
An 81-year-old man wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap was allegedly attacked in New Jersey on Monday for his support of President Trump, officials said.
Daniel Weldon, former linebacker for the University of Florida, is physically attacked for wearing a MAGA hat.
T.J. Helmstetter, former associate communications director for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), was harassing a man in a D.C. restaurant. While the restaurant owner responded appropriately for throwing him out, he felt that he was wronged and complained about it on Twitter.
Leftist reporter unfriends friend who chose a MAGA hat over him.
Apparently, when given the ultimatum, she felt the hat was the lesser jerk.
Ben Bergquam, working for America’s Voice News is attacked by Antifa for wearing a MAGA hat.
This report isn’t about violence, but does show the delusional claims people make regarding the hat. Jeffrey Omari, a visiting assistant professor at Gonzaga University School of Law, wrote in the American Bar Association’s ABA Journal about a student who was wearing a MAGA hat in class:
“his shiny red MAGA hat was like a siren spewing derogatory racial obscenities”
He also refers to the slogan as:
“an undeniable symbol of white supremacy and hatred toward certain nonwhite groups.”
A man claimed he was attacked by a group of teenagers in Lower Manhattan because he was wearing a MAGA hat, according to reports.

But what do you expect: Leftists holding a fundraiser for Democrat State Senator Martin Sandoval perform a mock assassination on a faux President Trump.

Delgado then allegedly punched the man in the face multiple times, knocked him on the ground, stole the man’s hat, and fled the restaurant.
2019-10-10 at President Trump’s Rally
Hundreds of protesters outside President Trump’s rally in Minneapolis Thursday night set fire to Make America Great Again hats and other memorabilia in an effort to show their defiance to the current administration before police broke up the crowd, reports said.
There were reports that multiple protesters were arrested. One report indicated that protesters threw urine.
A protester spat in the face of a man wearing a MAGA hat as he had an interview with reporter outside the president’s Minneapolis rally on Thursday, Oct.10.
The article highlights other violence from protesters that took place outside the rally as well.
A Minnesota man — who allegedly punched a Trump supporter in the contentious scene outside the president’s Keep America Great rally in Minneapolis two weeks ago — was charged with assault Wednesday after investigators used videos of the alleged attack to identify him, federal prosecutors said.
A Seattle man was sentenced to five years in prison Friday for making threats against President Trump’s family, members of the media and synagogues.
Video from the scene posted on social media and YouTube showed Dempsey walking up to a man who was lying on the ground and spraying him directly in the face at close range, KTLA reported.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t include stories of people in MAGA hats committing acts of violence, but they seem to be rare. In this case, the article talks about Dempsey spraying a man lying on the ground with Pepper Spray, which is a really stupid thing to do, but what the story doesn’t mention is that there’s a lot of pushing and shoving prior to Dempsey’s attack. The video doesn’t make it clear as to who started the pushing and shoving, but my money would be on the “peaceful protesters.”
Dempsey’s actions are still inexcusable.
Here’s the video:
What to make of this?
If anyone is guilty of a phobia (irrational fear), it’s the Left with their reaction to MAGA hats.
To be certain, however, in academic settings “making America great again” suggests a return to the days when women and people of color were denied access to these very institutions .
No. It doesn’t. And to believe that makes you a fool.
