On Sunday, Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Ky., called for a ban on teenagers wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, claiming the hats are “poisoning young minds.”

“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,” he said without providing any proof of his insane assertion.  “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,” he said in another tweet, referring to a report that said a Native American leader was surrounded and taunted by pro-life Covington Catholic students.

Yarmuth, by the way, just happens to be the chairman of the House Budget Committee.

Now he wants to dictate what children are allowed to wear just like a good fascist.

Reaction to Yarmuth’s tweet was predictable:


That works for us.  Or better yet, how about a complete ban on Democrats?

As for the report Yarmuth referenced, it seems there’s a whole lot more to the story.  Cristina Laila tells us that after reviewing the ENTIRE video, many are now apologizing to the teenagers, admitting they were duped by biased, selectively edited video and fake news.

“No crimes were committed and no one became violent yet the media is piling on the children and calling for them to be severely punished over lies!” she wrote.  And now an elected Democrat wants to dictate what they’re allowed to wear.
