A retired NYPD detective says a woman punched him in the face in Nashville over the weekend because his hat looked like a MAGA cap.

He was baffled by the vitriol and said he showed respect for politicians he didn't like.

"I love Trump, but I wouldn't hit someone who had a Bernie hat on," said Sprague, who spent more than two decades on the NYPD and retired as a member of the elite Emergency Service Unit.

"Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I wasn't an Obama fan but if he walked into a place where I was, I would show him and the office respect."

A friend gave me a MAGA hat so I tried this: no reaction. But when I did it with my old Army jacket on I got thumbs-ups and one shout of "Army!". Still, just wearing my old uniform shirts people will tell me "Thank you for your service" and all that. It's rare but it happens.

There are consequences for choosing to leave your house with what amounts to a klan hood on your head.

The "victim" is a self admitted racist.
He probably made the whole thing up. These Magat's tend to lie as much as their Orange Fuhrer!

Looks like self inflicted wounds.

I wrote off #2 as a genuine leftist antifa sort. Aborted is just a mouth breather.

There's an epidemic of feral Democrats assaulting people. If they lose in November, I expect a lot of violence.

Not far from me a guy got assaulted for wearing a MAGA hat. Cops got him though. Nobody around me wears one. I don't see them at all. Most adults are probably like: "I have kids at home I don't need this", because this is Trump country. But I swear I've seen more Alex Jones bumper stickers than Trump!, and those are very rare.

It could eclipse the riots of '68 and the Rodney King riots.

"Where was the media on this act of political violence?

It doesn't count when it's committed by leftists"

Imagine not only being a pig, but crying to your fellow piggies that a woman punched you.

It doesn't get any more Beta than that!

Bernie hasn't spent his life spreading hate and inspiring white supremacists.

Trumpublicans lack of awareness is baffling.

Yea, Trumpublicans are an angry bunch of mouth breathers.

Awwww... poor rwing snowflakes.

They finally manage to create a few over the top reactions from some people with their coddling of Nazis, their kow-towing to corporations, and their worship of a criminal in the WH... and all they can do whine about how all those violent libs are going to riot... ROFL!!!

You've heard that, "what doesn't kill me makes me stronger". These days you might want to get used to, "what doesn't kill me better ---- run."
