Conservative Teen Assaulted Over MAGA Hat

A 16-year-old boy was verbally abused and assaulted at a restaurant for wearing one of Donald Trump’s infamous “Make America Great Again” hats.

The attack took place in San Antonio, and the whole thing was caught on camera. The video has gone viral overnight.

The clip in question shows an unidentified suspect throwing a drink in Hunter Richard’s face while saying “you ain’t support shit, nigga.” The adult *white* man then snatches the hat from Richards and walks out of the restaurant.

Ooh, what a brave dude, picking on a 16-year old kid for his choice of headwear. What a truly courageous stance. Way to really protest injustice, guy. Way to #Resist, bro.

Richards was at a Whataburger eating with his friends when the attack took place. The clip has been viewed more than two million times since Patricia Spittler – believed to be the mother of one of the teens involved – shared it on Facebook.

Ms. Spittler issued an appeal for users to help identify the “scumbag of the year.”

“It would be nice to know who he is for someone to let him know his actions are not okay,” she said in a since-deleted post.

But this is only the second MAGA-hat related controversy in recent weeks. Last week, the manager of a restaurant in Vancouver was fired after he told a customer to remove his MAGA hat and refused to serve him unless he agreed to doff the pro-Trump headwear.

That manager (well, former manager now) is named Darin Hodge, and he said he has “absolutely no regrets” about the situation.

“I stand by my decision to ask the patron to remove his hat,” Hodge said. “The MAGA hat has come to symbolize racism, bigotry, Islamophobia, misogyny, white supremacy, homophobia.” (And worst of all, the MAGA hat killed all the whales and baby seals too! Damn that red hat!)

Hodge continued his brave, enlightened tirade by saying that, as a person “with a strong moral backbone” he “had to take a stance against this guest’s choice of headwear while in my former place of work. Absolutely no regrets.”

This just shows, yet again, how hypocritical the left is. (Especially the Canadian left.) These people would have you believe that asking a Muslim woman to take off her full-face burka when taking a photo for a government ID is somehow a violation of human rights, but asking a Trump-supporter to take off their hat at a restaurant is a brave act of justice and supreme moral clarity.

Is it any wonder these people keep losing elections? Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. How can they say they think Trump and his supporters are so evil and abusive, but still somehow think it’s okay to throw a drink in somebody’s face because of their political views?

In the eyes of the left, the only acceptable kind of discrimination is against people who vote differently from you.

And that’s a major problem. Our country has become so divided that political differences are no longer a source of mere disagreement. They are a source of disgust. The political divisions in this country have revealed not just a split on policy issues, but a split on basic questions of morality and worldview.

The left would have you believe that Trump is the embodiment of evil and anyone who voted for or supports him is complicit in that evil. But the left has also spent decades seizing our cultural institutions so that they could spread the message that there is no such thing as evil.

So which is it? The leftist lie of moral subjectivity becomes so plain when somebody with a different worldview is in power. Suddenly lefties are falling all over themselves to cast the Trump administration in stark terms of right and wrong, black and white, good and evil. Terms that they criticized Republicans for using during the Obama years.

“It’s complex,” they whined. “You don’t get it. It’s not about right and wrong, this is the 21st century.”

And then their messiah had to leave office, and their textured, complex, subjective, relativistic golden age came crashing to an end.

And their philosophy of Cultural Marxism has been revealed for what it is; nonsensical garbage devoid of any power to convict even its closest adherents.

Liberalism is an ideology designed purely to paper over the sins of its adherents, to salve their consciences with the idea that what they’re doing isn’t wrong because wrong as a concept is meaningless. But they don’t really believe that, because it’s complete bullshit.

And to prove it, all you have to do is stack the liberals up against somebody they really despise, somebody who represents a threat to their agenda, and suddenly good and evil are all too real again. Suddenly the liberals are screaming that it’s possible to be a bad person just by wearing a certain hat or supporting a certain idea of America.

And the really funny thing is, these leftist fools don’t even realize how profoundly they’ve debunked their own worldview.

And when I say “funny,” what I really mean is “sad.”
