If you want firsthand experience of what it’s like to be discriminated against, all you have to do is put on a MAGA hat and walk down the street.
At best, you’ll get some dirty glares. You might be denied service, à la 1960s lunch counters. You might get your hat knocked off. At worst, you’ll get blamed for your own son’s death. That is what happened to BlazeTV host Eric Bolling while he was minding his own business recently at the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C.
This pathetic excuse of a human being came up to Bolling and said, “Eric Bolling’s son killed himself because he was embarrassed by his dad,” according to the host. Eric’s son, Eric Chase Bolling, died in 2017 from an accidental drug overdose.
Video captured a man who appeared gleeful, even proud of what had just occurred. That is because Trump supporters are viewed by leftists as subhuman beings whose very existence makes them justifiable targets for physical or verbal assault.
At the time, Eric was hanging out with Hayden Williams, another Trump supporter who was recently punched in the face by an unhinged leftist at UC Berkeley due to his support for the president.
See the pattern? What’s worse is that these leftists pretend to be civil rights warriors while subjecting people to the same kind of disgusting, discriminatory behavior Republicans fought to end in the 1960s.
It used to be that discrimination was fast becoming a thing of the past. It would only pop up when shameless race-hustlers tried to make excuses for belligerent criminals like OJ while knowing full well race had nothing to do with it. When liberals tried to paint attacks on Obama’s Marxism as racist, I used to remind them, “I’m a black guy who grew up in the ’90s and I have never been discriminated against a day in my life. It’s not about Obama’s skin color. It’s about his crappy ideas!” But I can no longer say I’ve never been discriminated against, not because of my skin color but because of my political views. Then, of course, leftists try to turn it into a race issue by calling me racist names like “house n*gger” and “Uncle Tom” for having the wrong political views.
Nevertheless, because of these views, I can now say I know what it feels like to be persecuted. Recently, I went to order from a food truck with my friend Joel Patrick. Joel is a black Trump supporter who wears his support for the president not just on his sleeve, but on his head and his chest too, and we were essentially denied service. We waited for roughly 20 minutes while being completely ignored by everyone working there. I tried to give them the benefit of the doubt by assuming they were just busy, but the minute we walked away because they took an eternity to even acknowledge our existence, they gladly greeted the next customer who wasn’t in MAGA gear with prompt and friendly service.
If my grandmother were still alive, we would have been able to bond over how it feels to be denied service by Democrats.
I am fortunate that being denied service is the worst that’s happened to me, because, as Eric Bolling can attest, it could be a lot worse. Every week, it seems, there’s a new video of someone being harassed or assaulted because they dared to wear a MAGA hat out of the house.
Most notably, the Covington Catholic High School students were not just harassed, they were smeared by the national press. They were slandered by the media. They were sent death threats. People said they would bomb their school. All because they expressed support of the president.
Maddie Mueller (no relation to the man who sadly couldn’t deliver this weekend) is fighting her school because the administration actually tried to ban her from wearing a MAGA hat on campus. Gunnar Johansson’s family is trying to get to the bottom of what happened when his MAGA hat was yanked off of his head by a school bus aide. Logan Jones was suspended for wearing a MAGA sweatshirt and holding a Trump flag. A woman in Massachusetts was arrested for allegedly assaulting Bryton Turner, a man who dared to wear a MAGA hat to a Mexican restaurant. Even our elders aren’t spared. Just last month, an 81-year-old man was attacked for wearing his MAGA hat, and a 19-year-old was arrested for the assault.
What is happening here? It’s an epidemic. You cannot walk out of your house and be safe if you support the president. These leftists justify their actions by saying those who wear a MAGA hat may as well be members of the KKK. But it is actually those assaulting people in the streets and verbally tormenting them who more closely resemble the Klan.
History will not be kind to those who tried to take America several decades back into the past. And it will treat them particularly harshly because of the shockingly divisive hatred the Left is using to do it, all while shamelessly claiming the mantle of tolerance.
