I can see it happening, very soon, individuals wearing MAGA hats setting up Leftist and baiting them into an @zz kicking. I don't see Trump supporters laying down much longer and I'm just afraid that when they have had enough of being attacked, they will refuse to turn the other cheek and dish out some justice... Which will cause the Left to claim the status of being the victim. Regardless that they started all this violence in the first place.

Seriously, who would you fear more in a street fight. An unemployed basement dweller beta male who still lives with mommy and wears skinny jeans or some God fearing combat veteran who works 10 hours a day and owns several 9mm pistols?

Default More Left Wing Violence: Trump Fan Says He Was Attacked in NYC for Wearing MAGA Hat

Quote:
Caution is always in order with a claim of hit-and-run political violence, as attention-seekers have been known to fabricate such things for their own personal or ideological reasons. As I’m sure you know.

This guy, however, is clearly not fabricating his injury unless he’s a Hollywood-caliber FX artist. “Gruesome” isn’t too strong a word to describe that eye.

He says he was targeted by a group of teenagers shouting “f*** Trump” at him.

Sad. What ever happened to the party of "tolerance"?

No, he should not have been beaten up, but I've learned my lesson NOT to advertise my political views in public.

Been almost run off the road twice. First time for having a Kerry sticker on my car. Teenagers. Last time was worse. Daughter was driving with me and her two toddler sons in the car. She had a Bernie for President and Ok, then Hillary stickers on her car.

A woman with Trump stickers all over her car almost went into us, screaming obscenities , and giving us the finger. Want to kill babies too, woman? Both instances were in NY.

No more political stickers. Too many crazies out there. Both sides, people. Let your fingers do the talking with your vote. Nobody will know.

So why are the leaders of the Democrats silent on the issue? Shouldn't they be denouncing such violence? Shouldn't the media be writing up editorials against such violence?

The Brown Shirts are at it again. Maybe ANTIFA will go around beating up all the fascists that attack people with MAGA hats.

^^^ This. I used to enjoy this board, now not so much. In large part because every single time someone gets attacked for his or her political views then it is posted as an example that ALL people on the right or ALL people on the left do this and that this is an example of why every single person on one side of the spectrum is wrong about absolutely everything.

These incidents are WRONG, whether they be against people on the right or people on the left. Period. But neither does a single action by a single person (or group of individuals as in this case) mean that every other person that votes that way would resort to violence. These are terrible incidents but how on earth did our discourse get to a point that we take these and then ascribe that behavior to everyone of a particular political viewpoint?

As Jo48 said, both sides. It truly saddens me and is one of the scariest and most unfortunate features of the current political climate.

Anyone should be able to wear a MAGA hat - or a pro-choice hat - without fear of being attacked.

And when you vote, vote however you like.

Don't wear a MAGA cap, and you can still vote for Trump. It's that easy.

There were tons of people wearing Obama gear back in 2008 and some of the following years. Even teachers wore Obama gear to class at the school I teach at.

I never once heard anyone getting beat up or threatened over it. I never once heard a single person say that those wearing Obama shirts should be silenced.

Back in 2016 an extreme libertarian kid who I don't think even liked Trump but just likes triggering students and adults alike wore a MAGA hat around on days where the seniors could wear hats and there were multitudes of adults and students triggered by it that wanted his hat banned.

A bunch of teen agers don't represent a party. Trump is an unpleasant person, and lot of people don't like him. Red-coats in US were unpleasant, and people didn't like them either.
