Another anti-Trump liberal has attacked someone just for wearing a MAGA hat, proving yet again just how intolerant the left truly is.
Seventeen-year-old Ashton Hess of O’Fallon, Illinois, was waiting with his family outside the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle when he was physically assaulted by a pair of anti-Trump radicals. Hess, who is active in the conservative political scene, managed to capture the assault on his phone and uploaded the footage to YouTube.

“I was with my family silently on my phone waiting for a ride outside of Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle, WA when I was hit in the head,” Hess wrote on his YouTube channel. “My hat was knocked on the ground and picked up by the girl you see at the beginning of the video. She threw the hat to the man with green hair and he took off with it. He spat on it and then threw it into the street. He continued to curse at and flip off my family. I did absolutely nothing to provoke anyone around and was completely blindsided when I was hit. He was quick to run away after my dad, my brother, and I started walking after him.”
In the video, Hess can be heard calmly asking for his hat back, to which the green-haired person responds, “Take your racist hat and get the f*ck out of this state! You’re not welcome here!”
Watch the video below.
Following media coverage of the assault, Hess’s attacker was identified as 22-year-old Ethan Jackson, who identifies as non-binary and prefers to be addressed as “they/them.” Jackson bragged about the assault on Twitter, proclaiming that they were “fighting racist and nationalist propaganda.” Indeed, Jackson is relishing in the attention that the assault against Hess has garnered:

It’s sad and disgusting how proud Jackson is of being an intolerant bigot – and all while accusing Hess and other Trump supporters of being the intolerant ones!
However, the joke’s on Jackson, as many Twitter users have pointed out that people like them are the very reason Trump will win re-election.
@HessAshton you didn’t deserve what happened to you. Let me tell you that. And this is why liberals will lose in November and 2020. Because we see the worst of them in their leaders and supporters every day. Politics should be a very cordial, smart discussion, but it isnt. #MAGA

Screaming at the sky, spitting on people, assaulting kids for wearing MAGA hats & defending people who ‘joke’ about molesting kids.
Lefties are really covering themselves in glory recently, aren’t they?

Bigots like Jackson are blinded by their hypocrisy and hatred, and they’ll receive a rude awakening in 2020.
