The political violence in this country is getting out of hand and it’s likely to get worse before it gets better. A 12-year-old kid was attacked on a school bus by his own classmates for the grievous sin of wearing a Make America Great Again hat. Yes, these are kids…and kids fight over stupid shit. But, this is a symptom of what they’re hearing from their parents, at the end of the day. I may have gotten into a fight or two over a girl, or some insult, but never over someone’s political beliefs or their pro-candidate attire.
No doubt today’s violent leftists would be cheering something like this on. In their minds, it’s better to catch this kid early and dispense with him before he can grow up to be a so-called fascist.
“As a parent it’s so upsetting,” said Christina Cortina, the mother of the 12-year old who was wearing the Trump hat, and who was suspended.
“I feel like my son was made an example of, it was a tricky situation, it was politically charged.”
Sad to see a young kid who’s obviously interested in politics be assaulted over his civic engagement. Oh, and the administration actually suspended this kid along with his attackers.
Gotta love bureaucracy!
