Anyone wearing a MAGA hat and abusing anyone else, either immigrant or not and even illegal or not, should be ashamed of themselves, and should be appropriately punished. No one is going to MAGA by being a total ass. I'd like to think they were wearing the caps just to insult Trump, but they are 100% wrong in either case. Be well.
I really doubt they meant it as an insult to Trump. Trump built his whole campaign on dog whistle racism, making immigrants a scapegoat for everything wrong in America. It's a trick as old as politics to pretend to be one of the little people (because nothing says average Joe American like a billionaire capitalist born with a diamond spoon in his mouth) and to pander to rampant xenophobia. He also made it ok to be openly bigoted and discriminatory under the pretense of being non-PC. He has no issue calling out to the families victims of crimes by illegal immigrants while completely ignoring immigrants victims of hate crimes (for instance Srinivas Kuchibhotla). Same happened in UK after Brexit. Racist idiots felt empowered to attack people based solely on their skin color or attire.
I typically just scroll through and have a laugh at the insane situation people get themselves in, but this story is completely ridiculous. Whether this man was an immigrant or not, behavior like that by anyone should not be tolerated. How anyone can click " you deserve it" to this is beyond me.
The USA is founded on immigration. The only Americans moaning about immigration should be the Indians.
Too bad we can't round up all the racist shits in the world and drop them into Mt. St. Helens.
