It’s become almost a common daily occurrence where a MEGA wearing Trump support is either shamed in school, officially reprimanded, verbally accosted or worst yet physically assaulted all because they’re exercising their First Amendment.
This latest incident took place in Maryland on Saturday when a gentleman minding his own business and sporting a red MAGA hat was approached by two men who suddenly began asking him why he was wearing the hat, before beating him.
The attack immediately drew national attention, after Montgomery County Police announced the arrest of 27-year old Jovan Crawford and 25-year old Scott Duncan Roberson.
According to the police report, the two men approached the individual wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, near Cottage Garden Drive in Germantown on Saturday, and asked him “Why he was wearing the MAGA hat?”
The individual responded that “he was entitled to his own views” and began to walk away from the men. The men quickly turned and began “striking the man telling him to take the hat off.” He was struck again “until he fell to the ground,” police said.
While the individual’s identity has yet to be revealed, what is known is that the victim is a legal immigrant from Togo, who apparently supports the President. To the dismay of the crazies who continue to attack Trump supporters with the help of a complacent media which has actually instigated the divide.
That divide was never more evident then the willful mishandling regarding the Nick Sandmann incident, in which Sandmann wearing a MAGA cap stood along with his Catholic school classmates in front of the Lincoln Memorial, when they were suddenly accosted by a group of trash-talking activists, followed by a drum-beating self-proclaimed Native American/ Vietnam veteran standing only inches from Sandmann, banging on his drum.
Within moments an edited 30-second video went viral claiming that Sandmann along with his MEGA wearing classmates were harassing the 64-year old Native American, quietly standing alone. However, another longer version of video captured what actually took place at the Lincoln Memorial on that Friday afternoon, in that those doing the harassing were the trash talking thugs along with progressive activist Nathan Philips who walked towards the students standing motionless, banging his drum only a few inches from Sadmann’s face.
Since that incident Sandmann still receives physical death threats, and perhaps even more problematic a lifelong blemish on his character regardless of how many times the facts are revealed, thanks in part to an unscrupulous media, pushing their anti-Trump narrative.
However not all those MEGA wearing individuals are young, take the recent incident involving a 74-year old Trump supporter who recently visited his neighborhood Starbuck’s wearing his red MAGA cap, and was suddenly confronted by a crazed leftist loon losing her mind at the sight of all that red.
Rebecca Parker Mankey, suddenly went ballistic cursing at the elderly gentleman, calling him “Nazi Scum.” Ironically the elderly gentleman is Jewish, wearing his Yamaka under his MAGA cap. However the insanity didn’t stop there, after being verbally assaulted, this loon posted her confrontation publicly on Facebook (big mistake).
The loon continued harassing the elderly man demanding that others confront him; she even went back to Starbuck’s ranting like a lunatic, posting again on Facebook. Thankfully her out-of-control antics caught the attention of her employer Gryphon Stringed Instruments, who quickly fired her.
The companies Facebook page addressed the incident stating, “Gryphon does not believe anyone should be harassed or subject to hate speech no matter their beliefs. The opinions expressed and actions taken by the employee are not indicative of how we conduct ourselves at the shop.”
However not all the crazies are individuals, some are institutional. Take for example the wonderful wacky world of academia. For some strange reason individuals like teachers and professors who should know better, are actually more prone in denying an individual’s right to freedom of expression, then most other professions (politicians and the media excluded).
In Georgia, the Superintendent of Cherokee Schools District had to apologize after a teacher told students they were banned from wearing Trump T-shirts.
The unidentified math teacher at River Ridge High School erroneously told two students that their “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) shirts violated the school’s dress code, and not permitted in class.
In another incident, a New Hampshire teen was forced to cover-up a Trump T-shirt. The student acknowledged she felt ashamed and embarrassed when her high school principal told her she needed to cover up her “Make America Great Again” T-shirt and hat. Ironically the school was celebrating “American Pride Day.”
