Peace. Tolerance. Coexist. Those used to be the mottos of liberals, printed on bumper stickers by those who claimed to despise violence and hatred. But increasingly, there seems to be a new theme among the left: Assault anyone who supports the president.
We’ve already reported on several recent incidents of fans of President Donald Trump being bullied and even assaulted for simply wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. Now there’s another disturbing incident out of New Jersey, and this time the victim was an elderly man.

According to WNBC News in New York, an 81-year-old man was attacked and injured while shopping at a supermarket.
You guessed it: The senior citizen was wearing a “MAGA” hat, and that was apparently all it took for an unhinged leftist to lash out.

“The Franklin Township resident was shopping at a store on Elizabeth Avenue around 3:30 p.m. Monday when someone confronted him about the hat, Somerset County prosecutors said Tuesday,” WNBC reported.
“A law enforcement source told News 4 the attack happened at the ShopRite of Somerset on Elizabeth Avenue,” the news station continued. “The attack left the man with minor injuries, prosecutors said.”
Shoppers - Store - Outrage - Politics - Person
Fellow shoppers at the store expressed outrage at what happened, regardless of politics. “I think it’s very disgusting, the person that attacked him is a coward,” area resident Carlos Mendez told the NBC station.
Additional details about the attack and the suspect were still forthcoming as of Wednesday, but thankfully it sounds like the 81-year-old victim will be OK.
