Anti-Trump protesters torch MAGA hats, scuffle with police in Minneapolis

Protesters got into a brief scuffle with police outside President Trump’s campaign rally in Minneapolis in Thursday after some of the demonstrators set MAGA hats on fire. Police moved in to put out the fire, apparently angering the protesters. At one point, police reportedly used pepper spray to quell the crowd.

Love the picture. A Trump supporting POC being yelled at by white liberals for not following the narrative. Also, I never understood burning something you bought in protest. It’s a waste of money and no one cares. It’s like all the crazies who bought NWA cds in the 90’s and than broke them. In the words of Eazy-E I don’t care what they do with them they already paid for that shit.

They were urinating on people too. Such poor losers. I wonder what they'll do when Trump wins in 2020.

They're burning hats in a similar manner to how white supremacists would burn another symbol while being just as angry and hateful. The irony is lost on them.

They should purchase millions of MAGA hats and burn them, that'd teach Trump's campaign! Don't forget to buy some sharpies too!

Ah yes, the hypocrisy and double standards of the left have no limits. I love how they all cry about reducing the carbon foot print, while burning hast that have plastic material. just keep on proving themselves hypocrites, especially when it comes to race and the environment

Considering that the election is coming up, wouldn't Thier time be better spent providing support to a democratic candidate? personally I would think burning Maga hats and hurting police would strengthen Trump's base.

Leave us alone you bastards and get some treatment for your TDS. You wanna attack us with verbal critism fine but only unhinged lunatics do this kind of shit because your ideology doesnt allow for free speech so you use bike locks, fist, milkshakes, hammers, piss, shit, and lighters. Go back to the looney bin and when you've calmed down we can have a peaceful open dialogue. No one deserves to be assaulted for harbouring a political oppinon you disagree with.

China is an actual oppressive near-dictatorship who is rounding up dissenting voices and “non-desirables” to send to re-education camps or work camps yet you have these lunatics in America saying they’re marginalized. They’re the epitome of entitled.

The United States economy has reached $20-21 trillion per year. Expected to hit $25 trillion by 2023 (which doesn’t include the additional $2.5 trillion increase as a result of the Freedom dividend explained below). The Freedom Dividend, $1,000 in every American Citizen’s pocket over age 18 every month, requires a cost of approximately $3 trillion. That is only 15% of the current economy. You are told to invest at least 18% of your earned income in retirement for your future annually. Why can’t our government invest 15% of the economy into its people annually? The people who generated that economy and participated in it? Wait, but social security you say? Social security is paid for by the people and stolen by the government. So you can’t say they already invest in us. We invested in us and they take it as part of their budget. It’s a designed retirement plan for the people and has been abused to the point it might not be available to those who paid in. Now, the real cost also isn’t going to be $3 trillion. Since it will overlap against current welfare programs, which are filled with stipulations are designed to actually keep people on them rather than generating a path forward, will reduce the cost to about half. The VAT tax, which is not an income tax and cannot be gamed/avoided, will generate $800 billion, bringing he remaining cost to about $800 billion. Every industrialized country has a VAT tax except the United States because their governments aren’t under corporate control, like ours. There are several other additional items Yang proposed to raise the rest, but you can look that up yourself. It doesn’t really matter though because putting $1,000 in the hands of every United States citizen will inject a maximum of $330 billion each MONTH into the economy. That money will get spent in large and recirculated through the economy, generating employment growth, tax revenue, sales growth, additional VAT revenue to then be put back towards the dividend, etc., and is estimated to grow the economy by $2.5 trillion per year. Now who pays mostly for this? The VAT tax will be placed on non-essential goods. Who buys more of those? Wealthier people that have money. So the tax will fall more proportionately on those that already have. What does the Freedom Dividend also do? Puts money into the hands of those who don’t have, enabling them to purchase non-essential goods themselves. That is good for the economy..... Right now the largest corporations are designed to make as much profit as possible for shareholders. Who are those shareholders? The same few thousand people, which is why the U.S. stock market is not a good measure of prosperity for 330 million Americans. This profitability is at the expense of wages and the workers. In fact, corporations don’t even like people because they cost too much. Which is why robots, AI, and automation is replacing humans. Oh and get this. Corporations are so wealthy and powerful that they have taken over our country. They literally write their own policies and influence laws, essentially bribing politicians to push through their agendas. They are smart. They have money to buy the smartest people to figure out how to avoid taxes, hide money, and cheat the system. Money talks and smart people want money. So in other words, the majority of US citizens work their asses off every day while the system continues to get rigged against them. The gains and profits of our country stay at the top and do not trickle down. It’s an endless cycle and if you look at real facts and charts, the wealthy have increased their wealth over time significantly while the middle class and poor have only fallen. Greatest economy in history and we have over 100 million citizens in poverty. One fucking third of our country is in poverty. Why? The money sits at the top and stays there. These are the worst times in human history for income inequality. Wtf? It’s 2020 almost. Companies like Amazon make $250 billion in revenue annually and pay 0% in taxes. What does that mean? Amazon is soaking up billions in revenue from communities across the country and putting $0 back in. No wonder they are valued at over $1 trillion without showing much profit. Sure they employ people and invest in the locations they are, but it’s minimal and they continue to diminish those expenditures because to them, people are unnecessary expenditures. You think the cost of goods will go up? Do you even understand how capitalism works? Competition brings prices down. Sure their will be a small increase due to the VAT tax among other things. However, the price of things have remained relatively stable through the years except for education, housing, and healthcare while the economy has increased $10 trillion plus. How did general prices stay the same (in line with wage growth) for typically everyday items over the years if the economy had a $10 trillion increase if “but inflation?” Do you know what is bad for our economy? What causes recessions? What “they” worry about? Drops in consumer spending. Listen to the news when they talk about a recession. That is what they always talk about. Reductions in consumer spending. If people don’t have money to buy things, what happens? Companies don’t sell things. Companies then don’t generate revenue. Then they don’t generate shareholder returns and are ultimately disinvested, adding fuel to the fire. Do you know what is good for the economy? People having money to buy things. So why would anyone be worried about the cost of the Freedom Dividend and why does anyone think putting money into the hands of people, who buy things, is bad? It doesn’t make sense. In fact, trickle down economies REALLY don’t make sense when naturally everything trickles up in all economies, always. Corporations don’t exist if people don’t have money to make them useful. The Freedom Dividend is the epitome of capitalism and what’s even better, it will lift 100 million Americans out of poverty OVERNIGHT. The Freedom Dividend, is guaranteed income, which will increase your hourly wage by $6 dollars for a 40 hr work week, no questions asked. It will empower Americans and get the boot off their throats to start to think clearly and make choices. It’s in the MATH. Educate yourselves and stop choosing to be naive. Oh and get this. You would have to have purchased over $115k in VAT subjected goods to erase your Freedom Dividend benefit. So the dividend immediately helps the average person and is a tax break on the first $115k in purchases for a wealthy person. Again, non-essential goods. Hope you learned something.
