Looks like CNN’s Lamont Hill condones attack on teen with MAGA hat, thinks it’s ‘hilarious’

Liberals are nothing if not consistent in their hypocrisy and double standards.

With the left sufficiently whipped into a frenzy over the treatment of illegal alien children, CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill saw little wrong with a 30-year-old man attacking a 16-year-old boy for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

The liberal pundit first responded to a tweet from TMZ producer Van Lathan, which condoned attacking the child — Hill’s response was a series of emojis laughing until they cried.

“Wish I could take the high road. But your MAGA hat reads like a swastika to me. So ummm … hmmm. Yeah. Maybe I’m no longer a decent person,” Lathan tweeted.

After being called out Hill, a Temple University professor, tweeted:

“I actually don’t advocate throwing drinks on people. Not at all. But yes, i think MAGA hats (deliberately) reflect a movement that conjures racism, homophobia, xenophobia, etc. So yes, it’s a little harder to feel sympathy when someone gets Coca Cola thrown on him.”


Hill was responding to an incident that took place on Tuesday night at a San Antonio, Texas, Whataburger, where a grown man attacked a group of teenagers because one of the boys was wearing a MAGA hat.

The tough guy, later identified as Kino Jimenez, grabbed the hat and threw a drink in the teen’s face.

An act of aggression that Hill did not lose any sleep over, even though the victim was but a child. Albeit a child that supported President Donald Trump. And white.

Notice the consistent tactic on the left of first declaring what the hat represents, based on their warped interpretation, before spewing intolerance for the political beliefs of others.

The two were not alone in a thought process that rings of fascism, coming from those so eager to toss the term around.

In the end, the behavior only adds to the momentum of the #WalkAway movement, where more and more Democrats are choosing to reject the hate that now represents their party.


One social media user asked whether CNN and Temple University share Hill’s views on a child being attacked, but it’s safe to say we know that answer.
