CNN Commentator Condones Assault of MAGA Teen at Whataburger

The story of the boy who was assaulted at a Texas Whataburger because he was wearing a Make America Great Again hat has gone viral all over social media.

Hunter Richard, 16, was in a Whataburger with some of his friends, when a man came up to their table, ripped his MAGA hat off his head and some of Richard’s hair along with it. He then taunted the boys before throwing his drink at Richard and his friends.

“You ain’t supporting s**t, n****,” the man said.

He then walked out with Richard’s hat saying he was going to burn it in his fireplace.

Heavy has now identified the man as Kino Jiminez. Rumble Bar in San Antonio made a post on Facebook that he had been a part-time employee for them but that they had terminated his employment because they didn’t believe in such behavior.

One would think that the first response of most people, even if they weren’t Trump supporters, would be to condemn such an attack.

But no such luck when it comes to some of the media, including CNN commentator and professor at Temple University, Marc Lamont Hill.

From Daily Caller:

TMZ staffer Van Lathan seemed to defend the man’s behavior in a Thursday tweet, writing, “Wish I could take the high road. But your MAGA hat reads like a swastika to me.”

Hill’s response to Lathan’s tweet? Three crying laughing emojis, clearly showing he thought it was hilarious that the kid was assaulted.

He later tweeted that he really didn’t approve of throwing drinks on people (despite showing that he did), but (there’s that but) “MAGA hats (deliberately) reflect a movement that conjures racism, homophobia, xenophobia” so if someone wears a MAGA hat it’s hard to feel sympathy for him if someone throws a soda on him.

What’s even more hypocritical about Marc Lamont Hill’s response is that he’s been caught on social media hanging out with and speaking approvingly of virulent anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. Hill even said in an Instagram post that he told Farrakhan about the influence Elijah Muhammad (the founder of the Nation of Islam) had on the formation and consciousness to this day (July 27, 2015).

So suppose someone had the same reaction to Hill? Yet no one should advocate that. The only way this nonsense is going to stop is for everyone of all political stripes to condemn such actions and political harassment.

And Hill should rethink why he doesn’t have a real issue with such an assault.

What does the Nation of Islam have to do with this situation, Jim?

Islam promotes homophobia, xenophobia and racism. Jim was pointing out the double standards of the CNN host. That should have been obvious.

This sounds actionable. The teen involved is now at even greater risk of assault thanks to CNN.

The irony is that the radical leftists accuse their victims of being “Nazis,” yet engage in behavior that the Brown Shirts would recognize, such as street violence, harassment, and denial of basic civil rights such as free speech. Victim blaming is the ideal Nazi method for diverting attention from the real perpetrators of political violence and fraud to the victim.

So Trumpsters are generalized as racists, homophobic, xenophobic? I wonder where Liberals get that from? CNN, WaPo, Democrat politicians? They have been advocating resistance from day 1 and have refused to acknowledge the election results saying stuff like he lost the total vote. Their mission is to thwart whatever he wants to do. Conservatives did not do this to Obama but Liberals as a different animal,hypocrites to be exact. They are always right on the subject at hand and want it their sick way.
