As the American political scene grows ever more vitriolic and violent, there are concerns that we could soon be facing undue discrimination over our political beliefs.
Could the wrong bumper sticker on your truck keep you from getting a job? Could your Thanksgiving dinner invite be rescinded on account of your beliefs? Could a certain, iconic red baseball cap set you up as a target?
In Delaware, two women who snatched a “Make America Great Again” hat from a 7 years old Donald Trump supporter are now facing hate crime charges, on account of the fact that their actions were incited by their disdain for a political sect.
Two Delaware women accused of stealing a MAGA hat outside the Democratic National Convention were indicted Tuesday on charges including second-degree robbery and felony hate crimes.
Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21, were indicted by a grand jury on charges of second-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy, endangering the welfare of a child, third-degree assault, attempted third-degree assault, offensive touching and felony hate crimes, Delaware Online reported.
Three of the charges are felonies, and the two women could spend a total of 15 years in prison, according to Delaware Online.
The original incident was captured on video.
Outside the DNC Convention tonight, radical leftists attacked a 7 year old boy.
Because he was simply showing his support for President @realDonaldTrump.

A man who attempted to intervene in the original incident was punched by the two provocateurs as well, leaving no doubt as to the hateful intentions of these resistance stormtroopers.
