We The People have been under attack in 2018, not only from the corruption inherent within our political system, but also from one another, as the liberals continue to systemically divide the nation.
This has been a political strategy that the left cannot seem to abandon, this divide and conquer schtick, and it has certainly led to a number of harrowing situations within our modern society. We’ve seen members of the Trump cabinet attacked and harassed while attempting to dine out at restaurants, being chased from such establishments by both members of the public and restauranteurs both.
Similarly, and possibly in conjunction with these events, a number of prominent democrats have pushed for the public to actively confront and annoy these members of the Trump administration as well. California congresswoman Maxine Waters famously made an on-the-street stump speech promoting just that scenario, while actor Peter Fonda was much less tactful in his prodding.
This was, of course, just a part of Fonda’s obscene tweet stream, in which he also called for Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to be stripped naked and pilloried in Lafayette Square.
Now, this abject hate has spread into the mainstreams of American culture as a the average citizen can no longer support the President without fear of retribution from an unhinged and polarized member of the liberal left who will likely employ violence and harassment, a la Mad Max Waters, in order to make their point.
Such is the case today, as a teenager shares his harrowing experience of being assaulted in a cheeseburger chain over his Make America Great Again hat.
Police are investigating after a teen says he was verbally attacked and assaulted at a Whataburger for wearing a Make America Great Again hat.In the video, you can see a man throw a drink in 16-year-old Hunter Richard’s face before leaving the restaurant with his hat. Hunter said some of his hair was pulled during the assault.
“I support my President and if you don’t let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off. I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me,” he said.
Hunter was with his friends at the Whataburger off Nacogdoches and Thousand Oaks Tuesday night when it happened. They say the attack was unprovoked.
Video of the incident has been removed from Facebook, but a YouTube version was available at the time of this writing:
As Donald Glover said, “This is America”.
UPDATE 1:58 P.M. – The attacker has been identified, as well as fired from his current place of employment.
Following the cellphone video going viral, and the assaulter being identified as Kino Jimenez, a local San Antonio bartender, the man’s employer, Rumble San Antonio, last night posted a Facebook post telling of the man being fired.
Wrote Rumble: ‘It came to our attention earlier this evening that a part-time employee was captured on cell phone video assaulting another person at a local eatery. The assault took place, presumably, because this employee did not agree with the other individuals political stance.’
‘We have since terminated this employee, as his actions go against everything that this establishment stands for.’
‘Rumble has, and always will be, a bar that is as inclusive as any establishment could possibly be. THIS BAR IS A SAFE SPACE FOR EVERYONE! No matter your race, creed, ethnicity, sexual identity, and political stance, you are welcomed here!’
‘We do not condone the actions or behavior that were displayed in the cell phone video, and we never will.’
‘If you have any questions or concerns please message us privately. We support and appreciate your business.’
