MAGA hat

Buy yours here from Trumpland for $25.00.

Or here from Amazon for at half that.

But honestly, why would you wear one?

It doesn't even make sense in this tightly wound period. Too may people out there too easily triggered to violence. They cannot take losing so badly. They cannot take winning either but we're much better off when they lose.

I wouldn't want my automobile keyed just for sporting a sticker.

Daily Caller has a post about a large man who rips the hat off the head of a scrawny teen, says something disparaging and heavily racial and sweary and as he walks off announces the hat is going straight into his fireplace. The video doesn't run for me so I found it on YouTube.


8-chan tracked him down immediately, uncovered property records, dug up photos and Google Earth pictures of his family's homes and they don't have fireplaces.

The abused party asked for help and they got it.

For we live in a time of marvels.

The aggressor is already fired. And legal action is already being prepared.

And on 8-chan we see all kinds of family photos, Facebook account, YouTube channels, property records.  They have this guy pegged. The thread is ugly. These people are not nice.

if you were, as Louis L'Amour put it (probably quoting an old saying), the kind of man who would wear a Sherman button to a Georgia picnic.

Maybe the hat was being worn ironically.

I feel like I need a shower after reading that 8chan link. Nasty shit.

I don't want to detract much from the point, because yeah, I don't wear my political allegiance on my head or sleeve. Then again, wearing an American flag on your sleeve these days denotes a political allegiance to asshats that would steal a kids hat.

Anyway, doing this act in a Whataburger is just dumb. Regulars go there, and they'll track your butt down. We had a couple of activist enter our Whataburger just after the election. A Hispanic couple that nobody had ever seen, and then preceded to claim the white waitress that served them made racial slurs at them. This would be like claiming Mr. Rodgers went on a profanity laced tirade. It was obvious they were making things up, and when the Hispanic store manager came over to find out what the fuss was about, things went downhill quick for the activists. If you want to debate politics, take it somewhere else. Don't take it to Whataburger.
