On Saturday, in Bowling Green Kentucky, Terry Pierce was having a normal day walking through and shopping with his wife in a Sams Club, when things quickly changed, and violence showed its face! In fact, according to WBKO out of Bowling Green, a man by the name of James Phillips allegedly accosted Pierce and his wife, because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” ball cap!
Reports indicate that as Phillips berated Pierce for wearing his MAGA hat, Pierce responded by stating…
“I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to”
Still, things continued to get more heated, as his Pierces’ refusal to back down in his support of the President led to anger and more aggressive and vile words from Phillips! Over the next few minutes, things continued to escalate, and Phillips stormed out of the building, leaving his mother in the store. The verbal altercation then moved outside, where reports of a gun being pulled on Phillips was reported to the Police!
WNKY reported that the police were called to the scene by witnesses who then said that they saw the man pull a gun on Pierce, who was still wearing his ‘MAGA’ hat. In fact, both Pierce and bystanders reported that at one point, when things were getting heated, 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.’”
The station then reported that Phillips denied the altercation, and stated that he’d only made an obscene gesture with his finger at the couple because of the MAGA hats. Phillips then went on to say…
“He tried telling me I assaulted him and I said, ‘I never touched you.'”
The tv station reported that a surveillance camera captured an altercation between the two men, but does not show Phillips with the gun because he was backing out of the camera’s range. Also, the police report states Phillips had a Glock .40 in his back pocket with a round in the chamber and two more magazines in another pocket. According to the Police, Phillips has a concealed carry license in Tennessee, and that license has reciprocity in Kentucky!
At this point, there have been criminal filings against Phillips for assaulting Pierce over his wearing of a ‘MAGA’ hat, but with multiple witnesses, a conviction is likely to be the outcome. Now, only time will tell.
Then, on Sunday, another incident happened to a 14-year-old boy sporting a ‘MAGA’ hat, accompanied by his mother, walked into the Vans store at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, Kansas. The boy’s ‘MAGA’ hat caught the attention of a store clerk, who began harassing and cursing at the boy!
Within seconds, the mother jumped in to protect her son, as he had said nothing to the store employee, but was being berated for the hat that he was sporting! The mother said…
“He did nothing to you. What did you say to my son, to my 14-year-old?”
The employee smirked at her and replied…
“I’m sure he’s heard it before.”
The mother replied…
“Where’s your manager? the mom asked. “Let’s go,” she said.
As soon as the employee began to walk towards the teen, the mother warned him…
“If you touch my child…”
The mother marched right over to the manager and told him that the employee told her son to “take off his hat” then cursed at him.
“My son said nothing to him,” the mother told the manager.
According to the Daily Caller, the employee was promptly fired.
“Our focus is to provide the best customer service experience,” a Vans Corporate employee told The Daily Caller. “We did let this employee go. He is no longer with our company. The actions and comments from this employee at the Oak Park location is in contrast with our values and beliefs.”
“We have taken care of the situation,” she added, describing the employee’s actions as having “harassed a young male with a Trump hat.”
However, what do these incidents say, is the fact that as Democrats, Mainstream Media pundits, and the radical Marxist wing of the Democrat Party have pushed hate so much, stirred up so much anger towards pro-‘MAGA’, and pro-Trump Americans that our nation is now seeing the fruits of their venom and bigotry!
The liberal media – and the many Democrats running for president – will never admit it, but this is exactly the atmosphere they’re fostering, with a never-ending series of attacks on anyone who chooses to associate with the Trump administration. In fact, it brought about the anger towards the teenagers from Covington, Kentucky, who were attacked by the media in January were for wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, too – which was probably their biggest sin in the eyes of the Marxist-left world.
Today, as political violence and rhetoric has escalated, violence has begun to emerge as the norm in communities throughout America. From Hollywood to the Mainstream Media, to Pop Stars, to Democrat politicians themselves, they have all promoted, encouraged, and called for hate, racism, and violence against anyone who dares to oppose their socialist political agenda. The following is just a taste of the hate-speech and violence that has been aroused and perpetrated by the left…
Today, the left has created a pressure cooker, as they fill it with hate, racism, bigotry, and discrimination! They have tried to divide men and women, the old and young, the left and right, gays and straights, blacks and whites, Hispanics and non-Hispanics, Americans and non-Americans, and every other category! Now, as their seeds of hate and division sprout and are growing, America is on the verge of violence like we have never seen before! Sadly, the recent incidents are likely only the tip of the iceberg, as Marxist idealism, and all its vile radicalism and hate, have sprouted and begun to poison our nation, our youth, our culture, and the future of America!!
