    And many, especially leftists, who don't have a MAGA cap are racist.

    The hat has no such connotation.

    You are helping to spread Fake News.

    A what person? He was chanting a tribal song, starting long before those poor kids showed up. There was no bullying, apart from that "Israelite" group. As bad as that was, it is no excuse for the mocking of Native culture. Where were the adults in this? They brought their kids to a political rally, the kind of behavior usually condemned by conservatives when it is liberals who do it.

    Actually no the students were there first and had been there waiting for their bus to come pick them up when the arse walked up and got in the kids face yelling at him. The kids behaved quite civil considering the epitaphs and the direct confrontation the arse engage in trying to force the kid out of his way.

    He was already there. He said he was trying to diffuse the situation between the kids and the Isrealite group. It seemed to me a big misunderstanding. I don't know if that kid was smirking or just didn't know what to do. Where were the parents during all this? At Starbucks? I blame them for taking their kids to a political rally. Why weren't they in school? And whose bright idea was it to put MAGA hats on them? One kid said she didn't even want it, just did it because the rest of her class was doing it. This would have been a good time for parents and school officials to step in with a teaching moment about respecting different cultures. I blame parents for this, not the kids. They will only follow the examples set by the adults in their lives.

    Honestly, I don't remember anyone calling him a racist. I think his parents just wanted a payday. The judge was right to throw out this frivolous lawsuit.

    That's not what the video showed. He was chanting tribal songs, not yelling at anyone's face. He might have been angered by the perceived smirk, but none of us knows what he was thinking or intending. We only have what he said in interviews afterward. You're just projecting your bias. You don't know any more than the rest of us do.

    btw, the word is "epithet" not "epitaph". Big difference in meaning between the two.

    And you're doing the same thing to this Native. Don't be a hypocrite.

    The hat itself is a bad image. Very ugly, as are the sentiments behind it. I agree that is has become a racist symbol, although it wasn't meant that way, at the start. It has taken on that characteristic because of the behavior of some of the people who wear it. The effect of seeing it can cause anxiety and fear, much like the confederate flag. People should realize that before putting it on in public. There are better, more positive ways to show support for Trump than that. It seems clear that some people don (pun not intended) that hat with the specific purpose of bullying people. That's not right.

    yes, some that where the Antifa outfit are racist, they give others that wear it a bad name to some

    you many want to deny the truth, but doesn't change the facts that many that wear the mega hat are racist and they have given the hat a bad name

    Many, who wear no hat at all, are racists.

    You aren't making any point. You're just smearing people.

    yes, many people that wear kkk white caps are racist... some are not, but it doesn't changes the fact that many in this country see it as a symbol of hate

    one could argue that because many racists were no cap, that no one sees the cap as racist, but that would be a bad argument

    Saying that "Make America Great Again" is RACIST! is just a silly smear.

    The "Native" was a proven pathological liar, both about his personal history and the events that unfolded that day, as the extended versions of the video that surfaced later showed.

    No, it really has. I live in trump country and I never see people wearing them in public. That proves that they are ashamed to wear them.

    Organized DP violence explains that. The violent suppression of political opposition is a hallmark of the DP.

    "Jahangir Turan, 42, suffered a gruesome left eye injury when jumped by the group on Canal St. near Broadway about 7:30 p.m. Monday, shortly after purchasing the familiar red hat inside the Trump Tower. Turan told the Daily News that he suffered an orbital floor fracture to a bone in his left eye when slammed against a piece of the scaffolding on the sidewalk."

    Trump's tweets were obviously not racist. Patently false accusations like that one just further erode the credibility of Trump's opposition.

    The DP needs hire better political strategists.

    Correct. And those who continue to republish the slander/libel against the Covington students are proving that the children's lawyers calculation of the damages was spot on. .

    The Big Liars need to learn from The Atlantic and RETRACT - fast

    "By Sunday morning, more videos had surfaced, and I started looking for the clip that showed them chanting support for the wall. I couldn’t find it, but I did find a confrontation more complicated than I’d first believed. I saw a few people yelling terrible insults at the students before Phillips approached, which cast an ugly pall over the scene. I saw Phillips approach the students; I had believed him when he said he’d intended his drumming to defuse the tension, but I also wondered how a group of high-school students could have gleaned that when he didn’t articulate it in a language they might understand.

    Whenever the revolutionary Left wins the Left slaughters itself - often by the million.
    The little Robespierres end up just like the first one.

    I note that you are unable to paste up anything that is racist from Trump's tweets.

    The DP has apparently embraced a political strategy to win elections in Germany or France.

    "On Sunday, more than 150 of America's wealthiest, most elite athletes refused to stand with their fellow Americans for the playing of the national anthem. Other wealthy celebrities joined in spirit and on social media -- from Steph Curry and LeBron James to Stevie Wonder and P. Diddy. In Detroit, singer Rico Lavelle "took a knee" while actually singing the anthem. And in London, the Jaguars and Ravens refused to stand for the national anthem at their game in Wembley Stadium -- and then stood up for the UK's national anthem "God Save The Queen."

    And Trump's opponents think he's losing this fight?"

    they are protesting the current administrations, they have that right, they are doing it in a non-violent way - I have no issue with that
