These days, thanks to the overt radicalization of the fringe pockets of the Democratic Party, wearing any sort of President Trump paraphernalia almost guarantees you a hassle. And God help you if your’e caught wearing a bright red Make America Great Again hat on the wrong side of town.
You know, the side of town with all the artisanal shops and craft beer breweries.
The latest physical clash of political opponents comes to us from New Hampshire, and is one of the more egregious incidents in recent memory.
Authorities arrested and charged a New Hampshire man accused of assaulting three people at a polling station this week, including a teen wearing a “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hat.
According to the Windham Police Department, 34-year-old Patrick Bradley attacked two adults and a 15-year-old boy outside of the Windham High School polling station on Tuesday after approaching a tent hallmarked by Trump supporters and volunteers, including the teen.
Police said Bradley approached the tent after leaving the polling station, slapped the teen in the face, and assaulted two adults who tried to intervene. The suspect is also accused of attempting to knock over the tent and throwing Trump campaign signs.
Bradley is set to be charged with three counts of simple assault.
The only interaction the two had prior to the incident came when the young man told Bradley to “have a nice night”, which apparently triggered the 34 year old.
