More hate crimes against Americans wearing MAGA hats.

On February 25, 2019, at around 3:24 p.m., police responded to a call of a dispute at the ShopRite on Elizabeth Avenue in Somerset, New Jersey.

Arriving officers found an 81-year-old man suffering from minor injuries.

The victim told officers that as he was exiting the store after purchasing his groceries, a man confronted him regarding his red MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat, according to the prosecutor’s office.

A brief verbal confrontation ensued. As the victim turned to walk away, the attacker grabbed the victim’s hat and the two struggled for possession of the hat. The attacker then took the victim by the arm and threw him to the ground, tipping over the victim’s cart of groceries and  throwing his hat to the side.

Happily, police arrested the attacker, Ryan M. Salvagno, 19, the same day.

Salvagno is charged with assault, a disorderly persons offense, and harassment, a petty disorderly persons offense. He is scheduled for arraignment on March 14 in Franklin Township Municipal Court.

In some states, assault on an elderly victim is categorized as aggravated assault that carries more serious penalties, but apparently not in New Jersey.

  1. Race baiters, Marxists and thugs. Sounds similar to Russia 100 years ago, just before a majority Christian country became the Evil Empire.

    • Ain’t it the truth Trail? And just think, in Russia the Jews and their banker backers that were instigating all the communist propaganda and push to revolution had no newspapers ( that I know of) or mass media like TV and radio to get their message out. This was the czars Russia. So how much more vulnerable are we when so called legitimate news sources and our own ( traitorous) politicians pump lies and propaganda 24/7 and low IQ individuals like the thug in this article think they are entitled enact the violence and hate that they do. I don’t see this ending well, and it is happening way too fast. Half the country has lost it’s mind and seems ready and entitled to visit violence on whomever they disagree with. From civil rights,to the right to kill maim and destroy. I think there were those that knew this was coming a long time ago.

  2. This joker I think we can absolutely say is an “animal.” That he would attack anyone for wearing whatever they want, much less an elderly man is beyond what can be considered acceptable in any degree. My fondest wish would be that he would find his carcass in prison for the foreseeable future.

    It is so puzzling that our society has devolved to the degree that these animals feel entitled to threaten, to attack, and to harass whoever they wish.

    It is rather funny that the black community is all behind the idea of “prison reform” to shorten the length that law breakers spend in prison. . . yet that is exactly where they need to be so that the rest of society will remain safe. Go figure . . .

  3. Why is this NOT a hate crime!?

  4. You gotta be unhinged to assault someone over a piece of clothing.

  5. Consider that they have no morals or faith. They have been raised by the Odor. They only know what they think they want at any given moment and have absolutely no respect for anyone.

    This is the best excuse for universal carry I’ve seen lately. He could have made short work of this problem.

  6. Why do I have the feeling that this Ryan M. Salvagno is no stranger to the police? Yet if someone assaulted him it would be a hate crime…

  7. This is one instance where excessive punishment compared to the crime would be totally appropriate. 🤬

    Tying him to a light fixture in the store by his dreads would be a good start.
