Ive noticed many pundits, in the fallout from the Covington boys vs. the Native American incident, saying that the kids shouldnt have worn MAGA hats. Ive seen it said over and over, mainly by people walking back previous vicious comments about the boys and trying to balance it by now saying well, they shouldnt have been wearing the hats.
Others have chimed in, too, for example this member of Congress. I kid you not:
Rep. John Yarmuth ✔ @RepJohnYarmuth I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is going on. They seem to be poisoning young minds. [1/2]
Courier Journal ✔ @courierjournal "It was racism. It was hatred. It was scary." The Native American leader who was surrounded and taunted by Covington Catholic students describes the scene https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/2019/01/20/native-american-leader-nathan-phillips-recounts-covington-catholic-video/2630955002/

But however many wore them, its stunning that weve gotten to the point that wearing a hat in support of a president and making America great is considered a provocation to violence and trouble, and something that should not be done.
It is something like telling Jews in France (or anywhere else) not to wear their skullcaps, although of course a religion is different than a political hat. But both are public statements about a belief (or in the case of religious Jews, an identity and a belief). In Europe, thats what its come to:
But to countless Jews across Western Europe, these debates featuring high-profile figures, politicians and Jewish community leaders have little bearing on their own personal choice. Not waiting for anyones invitation, hundreds of thousands of them have been hiding their kippahs and other Jewish symbols for years now in Paris, Marseille, Brussels, London, Amsterdam and many other European cities with a large population of Muslim immigrants.
At least a quarter of Europes Jews had resolved not to wear their kippahs or any other Jewish symbol publicly before any of the debates even took place, according to a 2013 survey in nine countries. In that European Union poll of 5,100 Jews the most comprehensive study of its kind 49 percent of 800 Swedish respondents said they refrained from wearing clothing that identified them as Jewish. In Belgium, whose capital city is the seat of the European Union, the figure was 36 percent.
When civility has broken down and hatred is being fanned, its dangerous to wear any symbol that offends anyone.
You should buy a MAGA hat too.
Wish I had one.....I’d wear it everywhere...even to church.
“And a woman who dresses like that is just asking to be raped.” [/s]
Yes, the correct response is to get those MAGA hats and to wear them. The more of us that do that, the less likely we are to be harassed.
What, the hat itself is sending waves into people's brains?
And this from the same crowd that surround and scream at conservatives eating dinner in public restaurants until they are forced to leave fearing for the safety of their family members. F them, its time they get a double dose of their own antics.
Exactly right. Well played.
What a worthless Cuck.
“Don’t like MAGA hats? Don’t wear one.”
Besides, I thought love Trumps hate.
It's amazing to me that so many people in this country (this author included) that don't realize that to the average diseased, mentally unstable leftard, their demented and perverse political views IS their religion.
Yes, I agree but I would say one should always be armed. Additionally, make sure you have a way to video record any incident.
My plan as well.
Wear the hat and carry a big stick
Intimidate, not intimidation
I ordered my first one yesterday.
MAGA hats trigger Snowflakes. That sounds like a good reason to wear one.
If you use a firearm in self-defense in public, especially while wearing a MAGA hat, you should assume that the entire encounter was planned by the thugs and will be videotaped and then edited deceptively. My suggestion, stick to the letter of the law always, but especially when facing the pure evil of the globalist left. They want a provocation and are willing to die for it if their deaths might harm decent Americans and our president. Make sure they don't get their wish (at least not the second half of that wish).
That's probably about the right percentage of Jewish folk who are hard liberal leftist and care nothing about their religion...
I call B.S.
Wow. Nothing will drive up the sale of MAGA hats like this most recent kerfuffle. I am getting online right now and ordering my own.
This is even better than the NRA ball cap I wear.
