How is this hard to understand in 2019?
Try again? Obama said more racist things than Trump has ever had and he most certainly caused a lot of racial divide in his eight years. He only appeared to you Leftists as not having said racist things because your Leftist media never portrayed them as racist like they have with Trump.

Well, that's essentially the same as not being able to wear it because of the threat of violence from the Left.

Did you not see where I said that the man should not have been attacked? I don't care what his cap says, he should not have been attacked. If his cap said, "Democrats Rule and Republicans Drool," I would say the same thing. If he was attacked by Republicans for wearing such a cap, I'd feel the same way: you do not physically attack a person for their political views. My point was, do not advertise your political views; and therefore, avoid any violence.
Except your scenario rarely if ever happens. Show me documented occurrences of where Republicans attacked Democrats for their wearing or displaying of Democratic symbols?

I brought up LGBTQ as an example of a Leftists group that are free to express themselves and the Left demands everyone to accept them but on the flip side, the same Leftists won't extend that freedom to their political opponents. I could use muslims and their hijabs, burkas, etc. as another example.

I can't quite put my finger on it.... Oh wait.

Will he be defending them in court, as promised? Or does his ****e hat that is gibberish negate that?

Oh please! He’s not helpful, but this is ALL on the Resistence. And why the heck are Canadians even concerning themselves about it? I don’t care what you think about this issue. You guys won’t even fight for free speech in your own country.

I agree, nobody should be physically attacked for wearing their politics. I do think we mustn't let this movement get too out of hand. I think there are enough MAGA's to cause some serious trouble so they do need to be monitored and contained.

When people suppress feelings, they come out in weird ways as in the poster you are responding talking about naked men. We should feel bad and hope the desire never turns to violence...

Then the nazi tactics win. That is one of the reasons they do it.

I don't wear hats nor my politics on my sleeve.
However I am tempted to get and wear a MAGA hat just to see if the punks would try to mess with someone capable of fighting back and hurting them.
Sure, if a pack of them were around, they would attack anyone, as cowards get brave in numbers. But many of these punks have been videoed attacking elderly, women, and smaller people.

As an FYI, I feel the same way about anyone that might be wearing a Hillary hat, tee shirt or, bumper sticker. The difference is very few attacks were/are happening to them, vs. all the attacks against Trump supporters.
Just like you can wear a hat of the visiting team and cheer for them, so to should you be able to wear a hat of your political party and not be molested for it.
