Some folks, not many but a simple few, seem to decry the slogan "Make America Great Again" as a form of hate speech.

To those very few people I'd like to point out that if we are to accept that as true, that MAGA is hate speech, then we must extend that same logic, if we are to be logical, to the slogan "Hope and Change".

If America was already great, why would we Hope for Change? If Making America Great Again is hate speech, surely Hoping America Changes is hate speech as well.

But again, this is only true if we approach things logically. If we are illogical, well then it doesn't really matter as being irrationally upset, frustrated, and simply lashing out to lash out is the natural order of things when logic is ignored; which I think is the case for those few that deem MAGA as some sort of hate speech. Thankfully there's not many illogical folks that have lost their head in that regard, though even those few seems like too much.

It is popular nonsense since R. Reagan time… it seems sales good to low intelligent crowds.

Hope and change
Most of us in the South said "I hope I have enough change left over to buy some food"
Barry's words "to fundamentally change America"
The opening battle was "Obamacare"
This was not for the people. No one EVER considered that . It was to start the strife in the US

My humble opinion as a real US citizen .

It's not a symbol of hate, it's a symbol of stupid.

You can't apply the same logic to the left that you can to the right. It just doesn't work that way anymore.

You are about to enter another dimension, a world where up is down, right is wrong and where logic no longer applies...

You are about to witness a land of shady contradictions - shadows and paradox.

— you just crossed over into.... the Liberal Zone! (doo dee doo doo, doo dee doo doo...)

Why?

I don't think you've even met someone who owns one.

RACIST!!! How dare you!

It's RED which is considered offensive in many religions...

WHY would you belittle everything down to a singular color when humanity is a rainbow of beauty and spirituality?!

Logic, reason? A leftist craves not these things.

It's a fallacy to believe that other people leave a more sheltered life than you do...

I mean, what does it really mean? what timeline would you want "America" to return to? when was it the alleged "Greatest"

Native Genocide? War? Slavery?

Pretty sure the bull gets poked a bunch with swords just after that and then it dies in front of a cheering crowd. But hey I like it too it's good art!

Yes indeed, it's all a matter of perspective, for which there are countless in that image.

How about we just get back to when people didn't try to ruin your life for wearing a hat?

i'm sure this isn't a genuine question asked in hope of an answer to enlighten, but here we go;

it's a dog whistle. the words themselves don't matter, it's the will of the group behind the words.
just like every single other motto held up by any other group in the history of history.
MAGA just seems to be one that, fair or not, has attracted a lot of attention as a rallying point for overt racists.
