You didn’t read about this in the Washington Post, even though it happened right under their nose in the Germantown area of Montgomery County, Maryland over the weekend.

On Saturday afternoon, police say a Germantown man was out enjoying the warm weather and walking through his neighborhood when he says two men walked up and became outraged by the hat that he was wearing. He says he was shocked when one of the men allegedly hit him from behind. 

“Why are you doing this?” he asked them. 

After indicating that their fury was over his hat – a red “Make America Great Again” hat that the gentleman wears all the time – he was taken aback. He tried to explain a little thing called the First Amendment, but the two assailants were not interested in dialogue…. Or the Constitution.

The man, who is from West Africa, has supported Donald Trump from the beginning.

What?  An immigrant who supports the President?  A person of color?  

“No, the hat,” they said. Then, according to the man, “they started punching me on my head.” 

Here’s a telling detail from Fox News:

Witnesses called 911 and Montgomery County police say officers canvassing the area found the two suspects at a nearby basketball court attempting to hide among the children playing. 

Jovan Crawford, 27, and Roberson, 25, are facing multiple charges each including robbery and second-degree assault.

Hiding among children? Of course they did.  The left is growing increasingly animated by their hatred over Donald Trump…. 

And the main stream media refuses to report on the hate crimes that are happening right in their back yard.
