Thanks, media, Dems: Man assaulted in NYC for wearing MAGA hat, Twitter hatemongers celebrate

On Thursday, The Hill and others reported that art gallery owner Jahangir “John” Turan said he was viciously assaulted by a group of about 15 teens who allegedly yelled, “F*** Trump” and beat him because he wore a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Fox 5 said Turan reportedly suffered a “badly swollen and damaged eye along with other minor injuries.”

Turan said he purchased the hat earlier in the day at Trump Tower because, “I think he’s doing a great job.”

Here’s video of the report, courtesy of Fox 5:

The Hill notes:

The “MAGA” hat, a symbol of Trump’s campaign, has sparked controversy since his 2016 election, and altercations involving the gear have drawn national attention before.

Two men in Maryland were charged with assault and robbery in April for allegedly attacking a man wearing the red cap.

A woman in Massachusetts was charged in February with disorderly conduct after confronting a man in a Mexican restaurant and forcefully taking his MAGA hat off his head. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said at the time that the woman was in the U.S. illegally and faced deportation.

New Jersey teen was also arrested and charged that same month with attacking an 81-year-old man for wearing a “MAGA” hat.

Lying Democrat Party propagandists in the so-called “mainstream media” have effectively declared war on anyone who supports the president.  According to them, anyone who supports the president is a racist or worse — a Nazi.

Naturally, this kind of ongoing propaganda is designed to inflame the increasingly insane leftists who engage in the kind of attacks we and others have reported.

Twitchy tells us that hatemongers on Twitter celebrated the attack — naturally.

It’s enough to make one think that radical leftists in the Democrat Party along with their puppets in the media and Silicon Valley are deliberately pushing America to the brink of a second, bloody civil war.

Exit question: How high must the body count get before something is done?
