Another hate crime attack against a Trump supporter has just been reported.
An eighty-one year old man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat was assaulted and sustained minor injuries inside a New Jersey supermarket, CBS News is reporting.
There have been no arrests and the police are investigating.
“The victim was confronted by an unknown man over the hat just before 3:30 p.m. Monday in Franklin Township in Somerset County” the New York Post reports.
When will Democrats stop inciting violence? This has to end, and now!
All because of a hat…

Friend in CA just texted me: “My 14-year-old daughter had to take her MAGA hat off. She almost got beat up. And lost a friend. She had only been at school for about an hour”

ATTENTION: part of the objection to your MAGA hat is that it promotes a bigoted philosophy that was already bigoted when introduced last century and part of it is that the hat is unattractive, unfashionable, cheap-looking, and like wearing a mawkish bumper sticker as an accessory
