MAGAPHOBIA :lol:
I don't know why the video uses the term "brainwashed." Wearing a MAGA hat does say something about a person and it's not a positive statement.

If somebody ran around wearing a hat with a NAZI swastika on it nobody would think it strange that people would react negatively to it. The MAGA hat is similar.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

The reaction is disproportionate, John. And it confirms the fears and ignorance of people who wear the hats.

Not even close to being the same, stop abusing history. MAGA folks tend to be boorish and crude. They are not anywhere in the remote vicinity of being Nazis. #historyfail

When a hat with words on it sets you off this bad, the white trash terrorists have already won. :ohno:

Anyone who threatens violence or acts out violently based on nationalism. Why do you ask? Are you two feeling guilty about your choices in apparel or something?

It's a play on a theme from the 2000's and muslin terrorists for fucks sake. Good to know the right still can't recognize satire when they see it. :lol:

the thing about extreme Nationalism is... it doesn't recognize itself in the mirror
because it gets to use words like pride and love to describe itself

its fascinating
When love is the word used to describe hate
and pride is used instead of fear

Hard to recognize that when it's looking back at you

Excellent points! Along the same lines, love of the working or middle class can lead to socialism? :)

Agreed,
Socialism reveals itself as a hatred of the wealthy
though it is born from a love of the working class

Governments can be evil. Government is not evil...or it’s a neccessary evil.

I like a docile government that protects the innocent...not one that thinks as an administrative agency, it controls everyone and everything...like the EPA is prone to do...

Im with you on overbearing regulations to a degree but define “docile”. For instance, let’s say I’m on the same creek as the folks in the first article. regardless if it was a dam or stock pond, if I live upstream and I’m managing my portion of the creek form west slope cutthroat why should he introduce non-native brooks and browns which will invariably migrate upstream and tip the balance on my property? If I live downstream, what right does he have to alter the natural flow and discharge on to my property by holding water back?

Some administration and regulation is required because humans can be selfish assholes. That’s the reality based answer to “government is evil”. It would be nice if we didn’t need a court system either for resolving disputes...but some people are assholes.

Hence...necessary evil.

Don’t think for one second I’m not seeing this little trap you set. :ohno:

Milton Friedman talked about a need for universal basic income in the 60’s.

Milton Friedman...progressive.

Nick Hanauer...socialist.

Elon Musk...socialist.
