Delaware Women Accused of Bullying a Child and Taking His MAGA Hat are Charged with Hate Crimes
Two liberal Delaware women accused of stealing a boy’s MAGA hat and refusing to give it back last month are being charged with federal hate crimes for their alleged cruel actions.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) claims that Camryn Amy and Olivia Winslow, both 21, were caught on video stealing a 7-year-old boy’s MAGA hat in Wilmington outside of the Democratic National Convention.
“Violence in any form is unacceptable, but harming another person — let alone a child — because of the expression of their views betrays the principles on which our country was founded,” said Delaware Attorney General Kathy Jennings.
“Free speech, free assembly, and free expression are sacred, no matter whether we agree with the opinions expressed, and especially when we don’t. That is as true today as it was when the Bill of Rights was ratified. Our Division of Civil Rights and Public Trust will continue to defend everyone’s fundamental rights,” she added.
The DOJ made it clear that they feel the women committed or attempted to commit assault, robbery, and endangering a child’s welfare. Because the crime was committed to interfere with an individual’s ability to exercise their 1st Amendment rights, it can be classified as a hate crime.
The cowardly attack can be seen here:
Last night, Joe Biden supporters viciously attacked Riley, a 7 year-old @realDonaldTrump fan.
Joe Biden supporters stole Riley’s hat, ripped up his sign & made him cry.
Watch. It’s on video. This is sick.

The boy’s mother explained the situation that is becoming far more common as Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terrorists lay claim to the American streets.
“We had just left a peaceful protest against Joe Biden,” her statement read. “I was holding a pro-Trump sign. My son was wearing his MAGA hat. We were standing outside peacefully minding our own business waiting for our table. Suddenly, two Joe Biden supporters began to yell political epithets at my child.”
“They ripped the sign from my arms and assaulted my seven year old son. The Joe Biden supporters laid hands on my child and ripped his ‘Make America Great Again’ hat from his head while cursing at him and pushing him over. The two Joe Biden supporters verbally and physically assaulted my child. My 7 year old child was sobbing and screaming,” she continued.
Big League Politics has reported on other instances in which deranged left-wing terrorists have targeted children with acts of violence for supporting their president:
Kyren Gregory Perry-Jones, 23, and Cailyn Marie Smith, 18, have been charged with running teenage boys off the road in the state of Indiana because the boys were reportedly flying Trump flags on their bicycles.
Perry-Jones and Smith allegedly ran the boys off the road and then vandalized one of the boy’s flags. Police claim they were able to use videos posted on Snapchat by the suspects allegedly boasting about the heinous acts they perpetrated to find and apprehend them.
According to the affidavit, the suspects swerved into the bicycles of the 14-year-old kids, who are twin brothers, after the male asked them “if they were Trump supporters.” The boys said they had to drive off the road onto the nearby grass to avoid getting hit, as their lives were in danger for their support of America.
From there, the couple allegedly menaced the boys on their bicycles until the male finally got out of the car and tore off one of the boy’s Trump flag before making additional threats. He then ran the flag over, making it clear that he was making an anti-American political statement with his actions.
Perry-Jones and Smith have each been charged with two felony counts of criminal recklessness and intimidation as a result of their alleged actions. They were also charged with two misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief and theft. Smith has been apprehended, but Perry-Jones was still on the Indiana streets as of Friday.
A swift example must be made in order to show left-wing activists that victimizing their political opposition has major consequences.
