The Left’s Rage Against ‘MAGA’

Robert Stacy McCain February 25, 2019

Terry Pierce was shocked this month when he found a man pointing a pistol in his face. “All this over a political statement over a hat,” Pierce told WBKO-TV, after a court hearing about the Feb. 16 incident at a Sam’s Club store in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Police say James Phillips was enraged because Pierce and his wife were wearing red “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hats and, after a verbal exchange, Phillips pulled a .40-caliber Glock on Pierce.

This was no idle threat. Phillips has a criminal record, including a 2013 charge of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and there was a round in the chamber of his Glock, police say. The man in the MAGA hat was dismayed.

“Everybody has a right to believe how they believe,” Pierce said Friday of the frightening encounter, “but you don’t have a right to tell somebody they can’t believe a certain way.”..........That was the subtext of last month’s incident at the Lincoln Memorial, where a group of Catholic schoolboys from Covington, Kentucky, found themselves harassed by a group of so-called “Black Hebrew Israelites.” This is a rather notorious cult, and video showed them “yelling the most obscene slurs at these boys,” .............“The red MAGA hat is the new white hood,” left-wing actress Alyssa Milano proclaimed on Twitter. ........She hates everyone who voted for Trump, all 62.9 million of them, and this blind hatred of Republicans defines the current liberal worldview.........

This tribal division was apparent even before Trump was elected. At the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, anti-GOP protesters waved signs declaring “American Was NEVER Great! We Need to OVERTHROW This System!” Those signs bore the imprimatur of the Revolutionary Communist Party, a radical Maoist splinter a Mexican restaurant Feb. 15 in Falmouth, Massachusetts, when he was assaulted by a woman enraged by his red MAGA hat. Rosiane Santos, 41, faces charges of disorderly conduct and assault and battery in the incident. An immigrant from Brazil, Ms. Santos admitted to WFXT-TV that she “had a little bit to drink” before she attacked Turner, but insisted the assault was justified because she had suffered discrimination in the past. “He’s not a victim. I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?” This is a fair summary of what is emerging as the Democrat campaign theme for 2020, and it’s unlikely to be a winning message. Trump has driven liberals crazy, and most Americans don’t want to put these crazy liberals in charge of the country..............To Read More....
