Does wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat pose a safety risk to other people? If you are an intolerant Trump hating neo-com it does, according to the person running an on-campus coffee shop at Fordham University.
Several members of the College Republicans purchased coffee and were quietly enjoying the hot cup of brew, when the woman running the shop at the time told them they had to leave for sake of the safety of customers. They said they were customers but the woman in charge told them that their Trump supporting hats violated the coffee shop’s policies and gave them five minutes to leave.
(The Hill) – Fordham University is investigating an incident on campus after a video appeared to show several members of the campus College Republicans group being kicked out of an on-campus coffee shop for wearing President Trump’s famous red “Make America Great Again” hats.
In the video posted by the conservative news site Campus Reform, the self-identified president of Rodrigue’s Coffee House, which is run by a student club, tells the students that she is removing them to ensure the safety of other customers, saying that their hats violate the shop’s policies.
“I am protecting my customers,” the president says in the video.

This is a worse case of intolerant discrimination than what LGBT activists accuse Christian business owners of doing.

The coffee shop clearly violated the First Amendment rights of those wearing the hats and it should be shut down.
