so would it be cool to punch anyone with an "I'm with her" bumper sticker? If not, why?


I don't quite get your comparison here but even then It wouldn't be cool to punch anyone in the face at anytime. And why? Because I don't think that is cool. Now if you like I can go into the deeper ramifications of existential morals and ''right actions'' that I have picked up over the years, and you should know me will enough to know that I could expound on that for a fortnight, but I will just leave this here for now. No, let's not go around punching people for symbolic statements.

Just a hat. Ok. When we meet, you and I and you wear your hat, it can be just a hat. And when I wear my ''Alfred E Newman'' What me worry hat, it can be just a hat. But for others well, I will leave it up to them what meaning they give to their own apparel. Thanks Krak.

Perhaps the comaprison is more a response to the idea that someone wearing the hat should expect to be punched or roughed up, for the mere act of wearing the hat in public. If someone states or believes that, then conversely, the same should be expected o someone wearing a "hope and change" shirt or a "Hillary: I'm with Her" bumper sticker.

You cannot have one without the other and remain neutral.

Me, I say neither should be expected. There should be ZERO expectation of violent confrontation based upon something you wear, EVER.

Well, I don;t own a MAGA hat to be honest since I am an independent and did not vote for Trump in 2016. However, he is our duly and legally elected president...so I support him in that position. As I see it, I should not be poking and snapping at the pilot of the plane I am on at the time.

Do I disagree with some of his policies, yes. Do I agree with some of his policies, yes. And, guess what, that is OK. Who makes the rule there is no room for individuality in supporting someone?

My hat will be either a Red Sox or New England Patriots hat (depending upon the season). And as long as you don't physically assault me, and we have a discussion over that.

However, diss my Pembroke Welsh Corgi Hat, and the gloves are off! /sarc

Certainly, it goes for both sides. Wearing a maga hat in a sea of Trumpians is a statement of solidarity. Likewise wearing a hope and change hat is exactly the same. BUT wearing a maga hat at a Clinton rally or a Clinton hat at a Trump rally either speaks to the naivety of the wearer or their desire to be singled out as an opponent.

And maybe not expected, but rather anticipated. There once was a song written by an old folk singer I liked that had a line in it that went'' expectations we have may lead down the path where the devil discouragement lives.'' . I always took that to heart, that setting ourselves up with expectations can seriously damage our ability to respond to present reality as they come about. However failure to anticipate various possibilites to our actions seems to me an unwise course of action.

And yes, violent confrontation is not an acceptable resolution. Ever see Monty Python's The Holy Grail?? If so, remember the scene where the peasant is working in the field and the knight tries to ask him directions and he continuously takes every word the knight says as oppression? " Look look, I'm being repressed, Come see the violence imbedded in the systerm. Now that was expecting violence when none was intended.

Of course I did. And now that the evidence is in, I can learn from the event. I'm pretty much Schrodinger's Cat kind of guy. I try not to invest my own biases on an issue until I have enough information to do in a manner that I can back it up with other than intuition. I like to wait for the cat to demonstrate whether or not it is alive before pronouncing it is either.


Fair enough, I can't argue with that.

To be honest, his claim of repression was only made when he was physically assaulted by "Arthur, King of the Britain's" at 2:47 of the video.

Really...an adult treating a 9th grade student (that is about a 12-13 year old child) like this? Encouraging other of his peers to shame him??

9th grade would be 15-16.
Still no excuse to bully a child or to encourage other students to bully them.

Wonder what he does to the kids who wear rock band tshirts he doesn't like?
Still surprised to see this from a Canuk tho.



12 is too young unless it's a Doogie Houser kid, but my wife was 13 in the 9th grade and I was 14. Still kids nonetheless. Had any of the teachers at my school pulled a stunt like this, assuming it's true, they would have been fired and the parent of the kid would've beat the teacher's ass.


I was just going by the age I was at that grade.

Who knew....



DAYUM!

I really love the irony of these leftists calling for ‘evidence’. Something they NEVER require.

Ha ha haaaaa.

In fact, ‘evidence’ more often than not, turns out to be the downfall of leftist lies and accusations. And that trend is just getting worse for them.

This MAGA clothing trend is about to increase too, 2020 is coming. Better get some safe spaces sorted out. (At taxpayers expense of course)


Indeed friends of mine and myself are ordering these hats, and want a Canadian version as well to use...it is time to show the enemy we are not gonna be silent anymore about the attacks on us, and our way of life.

It is exploding like wildfire amongst the people here that it is time to make it known we ARE NOT weak and going to be assimilated, ever.

We do not fear your masters tactics and are indeed not only not going to go your way, but are likely going to swing the pendulum back to the middle and make sure this foolishness is replaced with real vigor against the actual enemies of humanity...

Hint: Not left nor right.

The fact you don't get the comparison is the problem.

IT IS LITERALLY THE EXACT SAME THING

You have a serious problem with reality if you don't see it as the same thing because it is. There is no Maga Hat wearing people going around hassling anyone. It is actually the exact opposite, people are going around looking to start violence with people in Maga hats.

Politcal statement or not it does not matter, anyone that cant freely express their political opinion without fear is a victim. I'm not really afraid of much, but I wouldnt put a Trump sign in my yard or sticker on my car for fear of vandalization, I simply do not have the time to deal with it. That my friend is a travesty and should be treated as such.

It's become quite clear there is a movement to suppress any favorability of the president, they did this during the election that's why soo many were surprised with the outcome.

People are impressionable if you see someone you dislike wearing the hat you you're going to feel more comfortable with your dislike of Trump. If you see someone you hold in high regard wearing it, it may not make you a Trump Supporter, but you will become more intrigued and open a true discussion. They cannot let that happen.

It is a hat. If you as a person are upset by a hat there is a lot more wrong with you than just attacking someone over a hat.

It does not matter no one other than someone who supports Trump wears it. So, I don't like the Red Sox. So, should I walk up to anyone with a Red Sox hat on and beat the # out of them. because according to your logic and others it is a statement. They are proud of the Red Sox I think they suck. Hey, I'm gonna beat his ass.. ignorant # right there.

So, a statement of what? Support for a president. That is it.

Same thing with sports teams. Support of a team. That is it. I mean, in pro sports, there are convicted felons all day so should be ban them because it is promoting that being a felon is ok?



it is a hat. its not just a hat.
it has become a political symbol. deny it all you want. does not mean it isnt true
i did not attack anyone over a hat and dont condone it

dude i never said you should walk up to anyone and do anything.
nobody should be accosted for wearing the MAGA hat.

my only point was it is more than just a hat. it is a political symbol.

it is a symbol of the right. if you wear your hat you are showing your support for trump and the right.
i suppose it could be about fashion.

its about support.
like if you wear a bulls hat.
more than likely you are supporting the bulls.

same with the MAGA hat.

i have never seen anyone that is not a trump supporter wear one.

if you were not an obama fan you would not have worn a hope and change shirt would you?

i mean it was just a shirt

never mind the political message behind it i guess

The derangement of the Left no longer surprises me at all.

I've even had relatives and friends go off the deep end.

Quite Sad.

Now I give them Jim looks from The Office


Even that seems to trigger them......

Why in the wide world of sports was a Canadian child wearing a MAGA hat in the first place? Second place, you know... this is one of those issues where my fellow Trump supports should probably STFU and use their brains before they opine. If this had been a kid in an American school wearing a Mexican flag hat or Canadian hate and the American teacher had made them remove the hat, we'd be cheering it (and rightfully so). Same for Canada... Canadian children don't need to be wearing MAGA hats.


Nonsense, Canadian children and anyone else can and should wear said hat.

At every turn we are flooded with all manner of garbage noone needs...this is a bloody right and an expression that MANY CANADIANS favor Mr.Trump and want someone like him to kick our nutcase socialist Prime Minister to the side.

Sad thing is you probably don't even realize just how similar you are to those you constantly complain about. That post was proof of it, you'll ignore it though.


Sorry, but only in a foolish fairy tale world does the, "you sound like them so you are a hypcrite" work.

Fact is, your hypocritical stance comes from fear of authority and brainwashed self-policing.

You failing to see the differences is of no consequence to us at all...only to yourself.

Mirrors show nothing at all to a fully progeammed soul, this is why they feel the need to tell others to observe that which they are not capable of.

We are going to breakaway from all types...and right now your type is being used to try and slow us down and discourage us from our victory.

You will fail.

You sound like a cult member. True story.

"Us, we, our, etc." No individuality, just hivemind where everyone thinks alike. Same goes for the left and the ones pulling their strings.

I could point to a hundred members that say what you say on a daily basis, I have a feeling you'd find it hard to find another member that says what I say.

It is political symbol yes, but it also literally just a hat. A inanimate object placed upon another humans head will not harm you. It is an irrational fear, a phobia. In that sense is it not just a hat?

I could point to millions that say what you say on a daily basis. They're on twitter, in Hollywood, on the TV and in the movies.

Do it then. Show me millions of people saying that the media and Trump are pitting their followers against each other on a daily basis in a divide and conquer psyop campaign. Show me the media and Hollywood saying anything like that. If there are millions of people saying that then no one would be buying into all the divisive BS being spewed by both Trump and the media.

I have a feeling you're just blowing hot air though, repeating your right wing NPC dialogue options provided to you by those in power just as CNN provides their left wing NPC dialogue options.
