In a brand new article on CNN.com, author Isaac Bailey admits that the Covington Catholic students were NOT the ones to provoke the altercation with a Native American man, but he still concludes that the red “Make America Great Again” hats are racist anyway.
In their latest far-left view of the news, CNN suggested that it didn’t matter what the Covington boys did as long as they were wearing the hats. Yes, CNN thinks you’re racist for just wearing a HAT!
“It matters that they wore “Make America Great Again” hats,” Bailey began.
“I’m talking about those high school kids in the video that went viral over the weekend, the one that showed the young men laughing and jeering while an older American Indian man drummed and sang”, Bailey said, before admitting that the video wasn’t as damning as it first appeared.
“It seemed at first to be an obvious case of white bros acting shamefully, but then another, longer video showed the same encounter with more context and new characters — a racist fringe group of black men, who identify as members of the Hebrew Israelites, and who seemed to have been the main provokers of tension and aggression,” he added.
Bailey then tried to say that it didn’t really matter who the real aggressors were, all that mattered was what those boys were wearing. Bailey claims the “broader, more important truth” is that “we are living through what feels like a “back to the back of the bus” moment for many people of color.”
“That’s why those MAGA hats matter,” Bailey proclaimed.
Then, he went into a wild rabbit trail of theories about how Trump hats are the “new” confederate flags:
That’s why it matters that they were young white men representing the Christian faith supposedly for a march to emphasis the sanctity of all life — while wearing those hats…The MAGA hat, like the Confederate flag, wouldn’t elicit outraged reactions if it were only a piece of cloth that harkened back to bygone days never to be relived. But it isn’t. It is a signifier for those who believe America was great during some point in the past they dare not name, knowing if they do, it would reveal a time when it was worse for people of color?
So there you have it, folks! According to CNN, you’re racist if you wear a Trump hat.
However, according to other leftists, you’re not just racist if you wear a Trump hat, but you’re a KKK member! Radical leftist Alyssa Milano compared Trump voters to the Ku Klux Klan and said the red “Make America Great Again” hats are the new “white hoods.”
“The red MAGA hat is the new white hood. Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself,” Milano wrote.

However, here’s the video that the liberal media doesn’t want you to see. It’s a video of the Trump supporters being confronted by the liberals, not the other way around:
