House Budget Committee chair John Yarmuth, a democrat from Kentucky, called for a ban on MAGA hats on Sunday. He claims that teenagers shouldn’t be allowed to exercise First Amendment rights, and blamed Donald Trump for the incident this weekend.
However, a very young Republican from Georgia is fighting back against the fake news and is taking names of democrats, media news personalities, and other liberals who have slandered and doxed the children who were ambushed.
In an incident that went viral, a group of kids from Covington Catholic High School were approached and verbally attacked by a group of Native American protestors and others who have been identified as Black Israelites.
The kids were called names, and the protestor, Nathan Phillips, claimed they surrounded him and chanted ‘build the wall.’ The media quickly picked up on the carefully edited video tweets and social media posts, claiming that the “MAGA” hat kids were racist instigators.
He tweeted, “The MAGA hats are one of the most recognizable symbols of the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, and are commonly worn by Trump supporters.”
His comments were quickly trashed by followers, who blasted his lack of understanding of the First Amendment.
“Yarmuth, like every other member of Congress, swore an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution — including the First Amendment,” which states, “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.”
The conduct we saw in this video is beyond appalling, but it didn’t happen in a vacuum. This is a direct result of the racist hatred displayed daily by the President of the United States who, sadly, some mistake for a role model. [2/2]

Call for whatever you want, John. How exactly are you going to shut down teenagers wearing MAGA hats? I didn’t vote for Trump and am not a stanch supporter, but if you decide that shutting down free speech is the answer then you, yourself, become the problem.

That’s the liberal MO. To silence those who disagree with their views. They are fascists plain and simple. We were warned by Ronald Reagan. He said “If Fascism Ever Comes to America, It Will Come in the Name of Liberalism”. Here we are, watching that exact quote unfold.

In an effort to punish liberals who have repeatedly called for violence against the maligned kids, a young conservative, ‘free thinker’ has started a twitter campaign to collect names of the hate-filled slanderers.
We’re getting new submissions every 30 seconds. Every member of the media who defamed, slandered, and doxxed the #CovingtonBoys on Twitter will be served.
Each and every tweet will be archived and turned over to the students’ legal counsel. pic.twitter.com/nk4DkQ7AmK

Many people hope that there will be a lawsuit, and it will hopefully teach these hate-filled and ignorant leftists that before they jump on a misinformation bandwagon and incite violence against children, they could face a lawsuit.
The outrage over this fabricated event shows just how savage America’s leftists are, and how ready to and willing to perpetuate violence over ‘offended feelings’ and destroy the constitution they are.
