Liberals Are Bigots, But It's Okay Because That Kid Had a MAGA Hat

Teens in MAGA hats taunted by Native American

Here's a rule of thumb I came up with a few years back, and maybe you've noticed it too: By the time I learn enough about a huge news story to realize I don't care, it turns out to be bull$#!+ anyway. The press latches onto something, focuses on it like a laser, and then it turns out to be nothing. This keeps happening, again and again. And over the weekend, it happened twice in as many days.

First, BuzzFeed gave us the impeachment-justifying scoop of the century that, er... wasn't. The bombshell was a bust. Then, for some reason, over the weekend we were all expected to care about an altercation in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Not even an altercation. Just a smirk.

If you haven't seen it, here's the Shot That Launched a Thousand Takes:

When I first saw this, I saw what I was supposed to see: a bully in a MAGA hat getting right up in the face of a sweet old Native American man, while the kid's buddies screamed and cheered. I didn't think it was a big deal, just kids being kids, but I figured that young man should at least apologize to his elder. I fell for the propaganda. It didn't make me angry, like it was supposed to, but I did fall for it. I admit that.

Then, every lib on earth went completely insane. They saw a white kid wearing an enemy uniform, and they projected all their fears and hatreds onto him.
