Just in another thread many on the right said there is no such thing as a hate crime.

In this thread some are saying this should be a hate crime.

Which is it you think?


I wanted to address this. Yes, hate crime laws are stupid BUT, if they are on the books (and they are) wouldn't these offenses fit the criteria? Or does Orange Man Bad crime not count?

If the day ever comes where CNN reports daily that pussy-hat wearers are being attacked by white right wing idiots as the new norm in society, and some pussy-hat wearers start saying "they can come try that to me!", and begin talking about arming themselves in self-defense.. And you STILL carry this same smug opinion for the other side..

Then, and ONLY then should you, and others like you spouting the same BS, be considered genuine.

Until then? You should be considered completely disingenuous for political purposes only. There is no doubt in MY mind, you would be reacting the same way as any sane individual in this thread has. The ones you keep accusing of being "Dirty Harry's".

Whether you like it or not, if the left keeps up the violence over a hat, we're likely going to see a lot of "Dirty Harrys", and the outcome will be an entirely transformed nation, with an entirely different set of rules.

This is more than just some offended people over some hats, and the left better start De-escalating this, or in a few years we could see this go far beyond just some HATS. So quit playing coy.

Nope. Don't believe you. You're safe tho because we haven't been and likely won't be seeing pussy-hat wearers being attacked daily anytime soon.

I guess it depends on location. I've seen some here. I've never seen a single MAGA hat. But does it really matter? They are both just hats resembling a political ideology.. Neither should be attacked over it.

For the record, if pussy-hat wearers WERE attacked on the daily while the msm covered it up, I would fully support their right to arm themselves too.

This happens almost every day. Those incidents are that are reported.

Can't we just accept that leftists do not want the 1st Amendment or any aspect of free expression?

not sure what you mean by resemble a political ideology

we can agree though that both hats are at least a political symbol correct?









thats interesting cause just the other day there was pages of argument about how the red MAGA hat is just a hat.
nothing more.
nothing to do with politics

Clearly they resemble political ideologies. I mean, come on. Don't lump me in with people who say they don't. The people doing the attacking think MAGA represents "hate" and "white supremacy" blah blah blah. But only a real idiot would think that.

People on the right think pussy-hats are idiotic, That's about as far as that goes. That's why they don't get attacked like they're terrorists or something, because whatever. It just seems idiotic and childish.

not blaming anyone
im also not talking about people defending themselves

i am just more interested in the people that seem to want it to happen close to them so they can go all rambo.



A good majority of Trump supporters more than capable of handling being attacked by a deranged leftist don't wear MAGA hats because they do not want the trouble. (which is the EXACT reason it hasn't turned out bad for any of them yet) You would see a lot more hats being wore if there were all these Trump supporters itching to shoot someone.

An 81 year old man needs to be armed if they are gonna wear the hat though.

With my look and build id doubt id be attacked, deranged leftist go after the weak and meek like your typical street criminal they look for soft targets first.

Anyways continue to deflect from the main issue which is people with MAGA hats being attacked and pretend like people do not notice what you're doing. LOL

well, since everyone on the right thinks exactly the same, I'd have to say, ..........

that hat rack you have is cool, but it can double as a brain as well, try that out from time to time.

Maybe deflect was the wrong word BUT derail the discussion to focus on trump supporters. Better?

Notice how the cowards only target those who can't defend themselves or they attack in numbers. I'm half tempted to buy a MAGA hat and start wearing it. Let's see how they like looking down the barrel of a 9mm.


Funny, I was thinking the same thing before I got to your post!
I doubt many will take a swing, because unlike the elderly and children, I’ll happily swing back.

When will conservatives get smart and start carrying a firearm/other non-lethal weapons to protect themselves?

Any animal that would assail an 81 year old is employing deadly force against said victim.

I don't want to hear a # word from leftist garbage when conservatives finally start fighting back putting down the threat.

I won't shed a tear. At this point, they deserve whatever they get.

Dirty, disgusting, worthless, useless, unwanted POS socialist scum.


Pepper spray. Just sayin.

She's a 70-something-year-old woman and trolling ATS is her entertainment. It's sometimes infuriating, but... *shrugs* Stories like this probably freak her out a little. They'd freak me out if I was in the 70+ category. I mean, if old folks aren't safe from the crazy right-left insanity who is?

I been wearing my MAGA hat, with my "AOC for president" shirt, and my Bernie Sanders pants. Should I be scared?

Maybe I'll put on my "Cancel sign over Obama" shoes to even it out.


Rofl. ATS wants pics!
