Leftist loonies: Liberals go nuts over ANY red hats

A mainstream Pulitzer Prize-nominated author whose work has appeared in Harper’s magazine and The New Yorker has demanded that “normal people” immediately stop wearing red hats because red hats upset her and make “disenfranchised people feel unsafe.”

In tweets posted last weekend, liberal author Rebecca Makkai explained that she freaks out whenever she sees any sort of red hat, lest it be a “Make America Great Again” hat.


And so because she’s deathly frightened by the MAGA hats sold by America’s duly elected president, it’d behoove the rest of the world to stop wearing red hats, period …

Naturally, her demands triggered widespread anger and derision, to which she responded by doubling, tripling and quadrupling down on her clear-cut Trump Derangement Syndrome.

First she argued that Americans wearing red hats would be equivalent to Western Hindus donning the swastika symbol. Though the symbol’s ties to Hinduism predate the rise of the Nazis, it’s been mostly abandoned culturally because of the Nazi atrocities now linked to it.

Then she argued that she was only speaking to “normal people,” i.e., those who believe it’s important to cater to the concerns and sensibilities of, well, snowflakes.


When then questioned about the myriads of baseball teams that boast red caps, Makkai quadrupled down, arguing that any American who chooses to enjoy the nation’s 150-year-old Major League Baseball culture runs the risk of “making disenfranchised people feel unsafe.”

To top it off, she tried to accuse her critics of being the real snowflakes.

“It’s also interesting (I mean that sincerely) that ppl will take a tweet w a ‘maybe’ and two question marks (by someone with no real sway) as policing, bullying, censoring,” she wrote .”Is that their idea of oppression? (And no, dumbass, a red hat is not my idea of oppression, don’t try.)”

But her words were contradictory. Earlier she’d written that the wearing of red hats would make so-called “disenfranchised people feel unsafe.” In other words, it’d make them feel oppressed, despite there being nothing inherently oppressive about a red hat — let alone any hat.

Conversely, those who do wear MAGA hats do in reality face widespread oppression, ergo why many Trump supporters abstain from even displaying their support for the president in public.

The actual harassment and actual violence against MAGA-hat-wearing Trump supporters has grown so prevalent across the country that an Oklahoma app developer launched an app last spring “to keep conservatives safe as they eat and shop.”

“The idea, according to founder Scott Wallace, is to ‘simply get these politics out of restaurants and businesses’ by gauging whether they would be friendly to conservatives,” the Chicago Tribune reported at the time.

“Wallace, who describes himself as a lifelong Republican, said he conceived of the idea in November, when he was out with his youngest child and considered buying ‘one of those MAGA hats.’ Then he wondered whether it would make them targets for harassment, even in Oklahoma City.”

While the app was eventually removed because of security flaws and leaked user details, the purpose of app was telling. So was the furious response Makkai received for her fact-free tweets.


Makkai was also hit with a LOT of sarcastic humor.


The hosts of Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” also chimed in on the controversy.

“Liberals are so soft,” co-host Jesse Watters said. “They can’t handle a hat, they get upset when you eat a hamburger, they don’t want you to drive somewhere. Stay out of my house, stay out of my kitchen, stay out of my closet. They’re always saying, ‘Stay out of our bedroom.’ Well, stay out of my closet!”
