A MAGA hat-wearing man says a man and woman beat him outside of a Portland bar.
Portland police say a man and woman were arrested for the assault, and the man who was attacked says it’s all because of his “MAGA” hat according to KPTV-TV.
At around 12:50 a.m., officers responded to the report of a disturbance at the Growler’s Taproom, located in the 3300 block of Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard.
At the scene, officers located Luke Lenzner with injuries to his face.take our poll - story continues below
Lenzner told FOX 12 that he and his wife were on a date night. He said right when they got there, they were attacked outside the patio by people upset about the hat.
“I got mobbed by everybody that was in that bar outside. People came from the inside out – just circled me and my wife,” said Lenzner.
Security camera footage provided by the bar shows the couple did try and make their way in, but it doesn’t appear to be very busy. In fact, bar staff say they were already done serving for the night and that they told the couple they were closing.
Lenzner attests that things escalated between people outside the bar. That’s when police say 22-year-old Leopold A. Hauser and 23-year-old Adebisi A. Okuneye assaulted Lenzner and his wife. MORE
Gotta love that “tolerant left.” I’d consider this a hate crime and should be charged as such.

This is exactly why people are starting to stand up against Antifa. They don’t tolerate anyone without the same views as them and will beat you up for just being different.
Will district attorney Rod Underhill will once again play political favorites and drop all charges?

Someone saying something does NOT give you license to physically assault them just like someone wearing something does NOT give you license to physically assault them.
I noticed in the end they were blaming the victim. He pointed to his hat and said something.

I don’t recall anyone beating up someone wearing an Obama hat and he was as divisive as they come. Sort of paints the left as the problem folks doesn’t it.
