For all this talk about hate crimes, there’s only one group that we can say it’s open-season for viciously attacking. Trump supporters.
Shopping in a Sam’s Club, someone pulled a gun. A hat was involved. We’ll come back to that shortly.
We’re barely halfway through February and it’s already been a busy year for anyone sporting a MAGA hat.
Of the really big national stories, we first saw the Covington kids in Washington with the now-infamous ‘SMIRKING’ story. It took no time at all for the media, celebrities and politicians to dog-pile on some kids who were basically minding their own business while being harassed by not one but TWO groups of adults who ought to know better.
We’ll see how those lawsuits play out. That should be fun.
Before the dust had even settled there, we had Smollett crying to all the world about how he had been attacked — hospitalized, even — by MAGA-hat wearing bigots who doubled down by attacking him because of both his skin color AND his homosexuality. There was even a lynching rope!
While saner heads saw right through that story, politicians, celebrities and media (see any pattern forming here?) jumped all over it. Smollett was a victim and Trump — together with his supporters — are obviously evil, violent and horrible people.
It turns out that America is, in fact, SUCH a wonderfully tolerant country that Smollett had to hire two Nigerian brothers to play the role of racist white Trump supporters perpetrating a hate hoax.
Smollett, it seems, hired foreigners to do yet another job an American won’t do — Lynching someone in a hate crime.
Now, let’s look at a REAL example of hatred around that iconic red hat. (Spoiler alert, it is NOT the Trump supporter.) If anyone really wondered why we call it Trump Derangement Syndrome, this should clear it right up for everyone.
The current story is set in a Sam’s Club in Tennessee.
The police report confirms that the suspect, identified as James Phillips, admitted to flipping off Pierce and Pierce’s wife because of their hats.
Pierce tells 13 News that he was shopping with his wife when Phillips “Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.'”
Pierce went on to tell 13 News, “I said, ‘Then pull the trigger. Put the gun down and fight me or pull the trigger. Whichever one you want.’ And he backed up and he said it again, he said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.'”
Pierce said the Phillips then took off. That’s when Pierce followed him out into the parking lot.
He pulls a gun on a stranger for wearing the wrong political swag? Seriously?
Bet he’s loads lot of fun at a party.
This guy comes to mind, somehow. But that isn’t even the worse of it.
That gun he was waving around in Pierce’s face? It was loaded.
In the report, police say Phillips had a Glock .40 caliber with a round chambered in his back pocket and two additional magazines in another pocket. Police say Phillips has a current concealed carry permit in Tennessee, where he is from.
No one was injured, but police arrested Phillips for wanton endangerment first degree. Phillips is in the Warren County Regional Jail.
Hey, Liberals. How about before stripping law-abiding gun owners of their gun rights, you do two things.
1) Enforce the laws we ALREADY have on the books. For example, the guy who shot up his workplace in Aurora had priors for violence, but was able to buy a gun despite having spent 5 years in jail.
2) Liberals: start by cleaning up your own house. How many wild-eyed liberals have already made the news for unsafe use of a firearm?
It’s looking like the real threat Republicans need their Second Amendment rights to protect against is the wild-eyed rage of Trump-Deranged Leftists.
