MAGA hate crime: 81 y.o. man assaulted for wearing MAGA hat

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.

Kentucky man arrested for pulling gun on couple wearing MAGA hats

It’s a war zone out there.

The Left have declared war on Americans who are patriots. It’s just that the complicit media haven’t told us.

On February 16, 2019, at a Sam’s Club in Bowling Green, Kentucky, a 57-year-old man named James Phillips pulled a gun on Terry Pierce and his wife because of their MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats.

The Pierces were at the checkout line when Phillips gave them the finger.

Mrs. Pierce said to Phillips: “Excuse me. Did you flip us off?”

Phillips went into an obscene tirade and said: “Yes, I did, because of those hats.”

Mr. Pierce moved in front of Phillips and said: “What gives you the right to flip me off? Because of the hat I’m wearing?”

Phillips pulled a gun out, pointed it in Pierce’s face, and said: “This is a good day for you to die.”

Pierce: “Then pull the trigger. You either pull the trigger or put the gun down and face me like a man.”

Phillips started to back away, but said again: “Yeah, this is a good day for you to die.”

Pierce stood his ground. As the two men continued to argue, Phillips backed away and stuck his gun in the backside of his belt.

ABC13 WBKO reports that Pierce said Phillips accused him of assaulting him, but Pearce never touched Phillips.

According to the police report, surveillance video confirms Pierce’s story that he did not put his hands on Phillips. Police say Phillips had a Glock .40 caliber with a round chambered in his back pocket and two additional magazines in another pocket.

Phillips was promptly arrested, charged with “wanton endangerment” and is in the Warren County Regional Jail.

Fox News points out that if this were a conservative pulling a gun, the news would be plastered everywhere. Watch the Fox News video here.
