I wore my blue MAGA hat last night while taking the long subway ride to and from the Upper West Side to hear Raymond Nagem perform Bach’s Orgelbüchlein at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The train was standing room only when I boarded . . . which meant that my hat was highly visible because I’m taller than most people.
The only people I noticed who were shooting mocking glances at me were some middle-aged men . . . and those guys were scary, not in a threatening sense but because their minds were so atrophied and warped. It’s scary when one is trapped in close quarters with people who have lost the ability to think.
I didn’t notice any nasty stares from women, but that’s probably because women are statistically shorter than men, so they were harder to see. Not that I was even looking; I was just a typical straphanger (who happened to be wearing a MAGA hat), lost in thought, staring out the window, occasionally glancing around. The only reason I noticed the guys who were trying to shame me was because they were facing me and were a bit taller than the rest of the crowd.
Maybe some of the women were trying to shame me, but I’ve noticed lately that more women seem to be reacting to my MAGA hat now by trying to tune me out instead of overtly trying to shame me.
I don’t know why this is so. One theory I have is that everyone knows by now that, 1) Jusstawana Smellit was not attacked by MAGA hat-wearing thugs, and 2) the Covington boys did not taunt that vile, lying American Indian agitator. Therefore, some people’s perceptions of MAGA hats may have changed a bit, and fewer people may be having negative knee-jerk reactions.
Some of them. There are still plenty of brainwashed, uninformed, ignorant, narrow-minded, intolerant Democrats / leftists / “progressives” in New York. “Plenty,” as in millions.
