It’s not enough, apparently, for Alyssa Milano and other liberals to deem the MAGA cap the modern-day equivalent of a KKK hood. It’s not enough to shame a teenager for having the audacity to wear such a cap and…smile. No, according to Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Rebecca Makkai, we need to have a full-scale moratorium on red baseball caps of ALL kinds, even if they have nothing to do with President Donald Trump. Just the fact that these caps may resemble the famous “Make America Great Again” hats is enough for all “normal people” to stop wearing them.
“Is anyone else made really uncomfortable these days by anyone wearing any kind of red baseball cap?” Makkai asked on Twitter. “Like, I see one and my heart does weird sh*t and then I finally realize it only says Titleist or whatever. Maybe don’t wear red caps anymore, normal people? Also, for the love of God: The clever folks wearing ‘Make America Read Again’ or whatever caps — NO. You’re making everyone scared. Don’t do it.”
So…really? This woman nearly won a National Book Award, and this is the depth of her critical thinking skills? If ever there were evidence that artists are guided by a Higher Power in the creation of their work, this has to be it. Because if Rebecca Makkai, the plain human being, were asked to create something great, this tweet indicates that she would fall far short of the mark.
Before thousands of St. Louis Cardinals fans retire their caps in shame, let’s see what else Makkai has to say about this pressing issue.
“If you’re here to be contrary: an equivalent here would be western Hindus choosing not to use the swastika symbol in public despite it being sacred to their faith because it would offend/frighten people. The red hat has become a symbol of hate bc of how its wearers act,” she wrote.
The rare instance in which further explanation actually makes the individual sound dumber than they already seemed!
“Also I love all the people who are like ‘YOU CAN’T POLICE ME, LIBTARD!’ Please note that I was specifically addressing ‘normal people.’ The ones who don’t want to freak people out at a distance. The ones who enjoy it should absolutely continue letting us know who they are,” she explained.
Uh-huh. Because “normal people” definitely think that the public is terrified every time they see someone wearing a red cap of any kind.
How these people function in society is a wonder that science can’t explain.
