This thread was started on the issue of somebody wearing a MAGA hat who got beat up. I stated that that should not have happened, and that if people don't want it to happen in the future, just don't wear clothing that advertises your political stance. Wear something else. I gave examples.

So wear your MAGA hats, and fight Lib-Tards, fight Antifa, fight whoever. I don't care. Just know that if you do not advertise your politics, nobody will be inviting you to a fight.
Victim blaming. Awesome.

How is this hard to understand in 2019?
Actually, he did. Ask any family member of law enforcement how his words impacted the hatred towards them.

Yeah or dressing or acting non-hetero or putting a pride sticker on your car or wearing religious garb (Jewish etc.) or wearing something sexy if you're a good looking woman. Heck, maybe some races shouldn't go into other neighborhoods that is predominantly another race and should stick to their own areas too?

Just prudent behaviors people should follow to ensure they don't get beaten\raped\etc. by others huh?

Does what I just wrote sound like how we should react to violence and intimidation in the USA?

Not really. I think at this point if you're going to wear a MAGA hat or hold hands with your girlfriend on the bus or wear your hijab to the market or you're a young lady that jogs in the park alone that if there are lots of morons in your area that instead of curbing your life you should instead taser\pepper spray or if push comes to shove shoot the attackers in the face.

What is wrong with these nuts who keep claiming Trump is inciting violence while they beat the hell out of people for no reason.

Oh, perhaps they're talking about being triggered themselves.

That said, why do people insist on displaying their politics on their clothing? Display your sports allegiance, display your workplace, display your like of motorcycles or heavy equipment or automotive brands, but if you don't want to run afoul of either side of the political divide (and people on both sides who are looking to beat somebody up), then keep your politics off your clothing. 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.
Same philosophy, just packaged differently.

Why do you think the typical person has political bumper stickers, yard signs, hats and the like?
Even though I never have any of those things by choice, I suspect the reason most people that do is because they want others to see it, and maybe be influenced to vote the same.
The irony is MAGA hats do not even have Trumps name on them, and the saying Make America Great Again is a positive message regardless of what politician or party uses it.
Trump is not the first to adopt the saying, and undoubtedly will not be the last into the future.

Regardless, don't imply that the leftist are the same as the conservatives when it comes to attacking people. So few liberals have been attacked, you have people trying to create false flags like Smolett saying he was attacked.

Either side can have punks or violent nuts, but the majority of political attacks are against people with Trump/Republican road signs, bumper stickers, apparel, etc.

LOL, was this man attacked because of the color of his skin? No, he was attacked for a political belief. Yes?
