Man Assaulted in Portland for Wearing ‘MAGA’ Hat

A man and his wife were assaulted outside a bar in Portland, Oregon during the weekend, over the fact that the man was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.

Luke Lenzner told a Fox affiliate in Portland that as he and his wife were leaving the Growler’s Taproom bar just before 1 A.M., people were “surrounding me, like literally surrounding me, pushing me.” He said that he was “trying to stop the person from hitting me, from taking my hat, and then I get sucker punched.”

Images from that night show Lenzner with blood on his face and still wearing the hat. The suspects fled as police were called, but Lenzner was able to give the officers a license plate number, which led to the arrest of two assailants, Leopold Hauser and Adebisi Okuneye. The suspects have been charged with third-degree assault.

This incident further highlights the rise of far-left violence against Trump supporters in the city of Portland. This occurred less than a week after another violent riot in Portland by the far-left domestic terrorist organization Antifa, which attacked peaceful right-wing protestors and bystanders alike, including by throwing hammers at demonstrators and chasing a little girl through the city streets.
