If you listen to the mainstream media, you know that Trump supporters – those folks who go around wearing confrontational MAGA caps in public instead of something non-controversial, like Antifa masks – are all anti-immigrant white supremacists who promote violence and commit hate crimes.
At least, that’s what the mainstream media think Trump supporters are because so many people who work in the media have never actually met one.
So allow me to introduce them to one. Last Saturday, he was taking a walk after dinner in Germantown, Maryland, minding his own business, when two men in their 20s began harassing him for wearing his MAGA cap. When he tried to walk away, they attacked him, striking him repeatedly and stealing his MAGA cap. (It was like Jussie Smollett's story, only in reverse and true.) Fortunately, he was able to get a photo of his attackers, and they were arrested.
The Trump-supporting victim is Atsu Mable, a legal immigrant from the West African nation of Togo. When asked by Fox News host Steve Ducey if he had anything to say to his attackers, this was his reply:
“I have a message for love — that Jesus said in the Bible that you must love your neighbor, so I still love them. I think whatever happened to me that day should not happen to anybody, for their political view. So I still love them and I forgive them. I’m ready to make peace with them if I could see them again.”
Asked why he supports Trump and wears a MAGA hat, Mable said, “I like the message that the president brought back in 2015 when he was running. And then I liked the message and I’m seeing what he’s doing. But I’m not here to criticize anybody or put anybody down for if they are left or right, or if they are red or blue. I know that the President has his own agenda, and that agenda — I do believe in that agenda — and he is delivering on it and making this country great again.” As for whether he would wear the cap again even after being assaulted for it, he said yes, adding, “I’m very proud of wearing the hat.”
I would now offer free MAGA caps to members of the mainstream media, but having just learned that Trump supporters can and do include people such as a black African immigrant who was attacked by leftist thugs but turned the other cheek and forgave them, I assume they can’t wear caps because their heads just exploded.
