Rebecca Makkai is a Chicago-based author, and a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
She is also a Trump deranged nutcake.
Here is a sampling of her tweets over the past week:
Is anyone else made really uncomfortable these days by anyone wearing any kind of red baseball cap? Like, I see one and my heart does weird shit and then I finally realize it only says Titleist or whatever. Maybe don’t wear red caps anymore, normal people?
Also, for the love of God: The clever folks wearing “Make America Read Again” or whatever caps — NO. You’re making everyone scared. Don’t do it.
There you go. Rebecca Makkai hates Trump. And Trump “Make America Great Again” hats scare her. So all red hats are scary for everyone and they shouldn’t be worn.
Oh, did I mention that she equated the hats with nazism (which the left is rapidly trivializing to the point where it will mean about as much as their accusations of “racism” now do?)
Here, let me show you:
If you’re here to be contrary: an equivalent here would be western Hindus choosing not to use the swastika symbol in public despite it being sacred to their faith because it would offend/frighten people. The red hat has become a symbol of hate bc of how its wearers act.
I love the response of someone named Ryan Wald, who answered with this:
I agree with you. Every normal person who is a fan of the Detroit Red Wings, StL Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds, LA Angels, Arizona Cardinals, Phillies, & so forth need to abstain from wearing a team hat if it’s red. Red hats = bigotry
That response, simultaneously funny and serious, says a lot about Ms. Makkai and the people like her.
Now, let’s all sit and wait for social justice warriors all over the United States to come down hard on Rebecca Makkai, pointing out that this is a simple, basic freedom of speech issue and that if she’s scared by red hats she needs therapy; lots and lots of it.
But bring a change of clothing…because this is not going to be a short wait.
