This is just how fascist Democrats are… An enraged Congressman John Yarmuth jumped to his Twitter account on Sunday to suggest that Congress should act to pass a law that would ban teenagers from being allowed to wear President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hat.
Who needs that darned ol’ First Amendment, huh?
Yarmuth was incensed by the fake news video of a group of Catholic school boys supposedly taunting a group of Native Americans. The reports turned out to be false. Indeed, it was the Native Americans who went out of their way to confront the kids. So, the whole claim that the kids were the aggressors is fake news.
That didn’t stop fascist Yarmuth from immediately jumping in to put an end to America’s First Amendment rights.
“I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is going on. They seem to be poisoning young minds,” Yarmuth tweeted. “The conduct we saw in this video is beyond appalling, but it didn’t happen in a vacuum. This is a direct result of the racist hatred displayed daily by the President of the United States who, sadly, some mistake for a role model.”

It wasn’t long before Yarmuth was inundated with people shocked that a member of Congress — and the chairman of the House Budget Committee, at that — was advocating for an end to the First Amendment.
So, naturally Yarmuth began saying he was juuuuust joking.
Yarmuth came up with the lame excuse that he was just acting like Trump did when the president tried to ban immigrants from certain Muslim countries.
Then he tried to claim that he is a staunch defender of the First Amendment.
Of course, his lame, last-second excuse is ill-fitting.
Trump didn’t “ban Muslims.” He did try to stop immigrants coming here from a few war-torn, terror exporting countries AND his plan was temporary. So, there is no parallel to what Yarmuth said — i.e. banning Americans from their First Amendment rights.
This incident just shows the fascism in the hears of all Democrats.
