Cernovich Offers CNN Host $100K to Spend Day in NYC Wearing MAGA Hat

In an effort to raise awareness of the political violence that supporters of President Donald Trump face on a daily basis, author and journalist Mike Cernovich has offered to make a $100K donation to charity if CNN’s Brian Stelter will spend a day in NYC wearing a MAGA hat.

The rules of the challenge are simple — Stelter must walk around the big city in a red MAGA hat for eight hours while filming it. The offer was made in response to the CNN host repeatedly claiming that Trump poking fun at his outlet is making it more dangerous to be a journalist.

Cernovich hopes that the simple act would open the Reliable Sources host’s eyes to the violence and hate that news organizations, like his own, are helping to incite against those on the right.

“According to you, being a journalist is dangerous, and according to me, being a Trump supporter is dangerous. So I am willing to bet $100,000 for charity,” Cernovich said on his Periscope feed. “My contention is that wearing a Trump hat is more contentious than wearing a CNN hat. My contention is that members of the media, although you may get trolled, you’re not in any physical danger, but Trump supporters are, and you’re not covering it, Brian.”

Cernovich added that while wearing a CNN hat might get a reporter briefly heckled, it is nothing compared to the actual violence and physical danger that supporters of the president face if they choose to show it in public.

If Stelter completes the challenge, Cernovich has vowed to donate the money to the organization of the CNN host’s choice.

Last week in New York City, Jovi Val, a Proud Boy and Trump supporter, was violently attacked and hospitalized over his MAGA hat.

After leaving Milo Yiannopoulos’ book launch party, Val and several others went to a bar. While dancing, his MAGA hat fell off — and a woman began to stomp on it. As he attempted to get the woman off of his hat, the woman’s boyfriend ran up and hit him in the face with a beer bottle.

Following the assault, Val ended up in the hospital with a broken nose and in need of 15 stitches on his cheek.

Val told Big League Politics that he hopes Stelter will accept the challenge — and bring Anderson Cooper with him.

“Brian,” Cernovich said, “you talk a big game on TV — will you take that big game to the mean streets of New York to raise money for charity? Let’s find out.”

As of Wednesday, Stelter had not accepted the challenge.

Green-Haired Freak Steals, Spits on MAGA Hat to Fight So-Called Racism

Published

Another day, another American harassed in public for supporting the duly elected President Donald J. Trump.

“17-year-old Ashton Hess was assaulted and had his hat spat on by an angry green haired “non-binary” person in Seattle,” wrote The Scoop, sharing a video on Twitter.

WATCH:

“This non-binary” person assaulted a 17-year-old and spat on his MAGA hat,” the caption in the video says.

Non-binary means that the person identifies neither as a man nor a woman.

Most of the video shows Hess chasing after the suspect, named Ethan Jackson, who took credit for the attack on Twitter.

“Take your racist ass and get the f*ck out of this state,” Jackson yells at one point in the video. “You’re not welcome here.”

Jackson said on Twitter that he was “fighting racist and nationalist propaganda.”

This attack comes on the heels of a similar one in a San Antonio, TX Whataburger, where a teen had a drink thrown in his face by a 30-year old man for wearing a MAGA hat in public.

Big League Politics reported:

Kino Jimenez ruined the evening of Hunter Richards and his friends, who were enjoying a late night meal at Whataburger when he stole Richards’ MAGA hat, cursed him out, and left the restaurant in huff.”

BLP Passage Ends.

Donald Trump Jr. was able to secure a new MAGA hat – signed by the President – for Richards after the Texas assault. Perhaps the same can be done Hess.
