I dont know which to believe, a man wearing a MAGA hat in the heart of commieland, or the fact that he has a sword with him. Either way, keep your hands off people’s properties, even tho they disagree with you politically.

A man wearing a MAGA cap attacked another man with a sword outside a San Francisco roller-skating rink Friday night, police say.

The victim is said to have grabbed the assailant’s red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat during the bloody confrontation before being stabbed in his hand.

He is said to have been approached by the suspect in the MAGA hat and a row broke out.

In shocking images posted online the red hat - a symbol of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign - can be seen laying on the sidewalk surrounded by blood.

Eyewitness David Miles said: ‘I came outside. The guy was cut, he was bleeding like you wouldn’t believe. He was just gushing blood, so we got the first aid kit from inside and tried to stop the bleeding.’

Miles posted a shocking image of the aftermath of the incident on Facebook. It showed the red hat near a pool of blood.

Other images show the cap left on the floor after the victim, who has not been named, is said to have chased his attacker before realizing the extent of his injuries.

Miles added: ‘This is the last thing you think is going to happen. I’m very, very, very concerned. I don’t really know what to think.’

Scott Sweeney, 24, said he heard the attacker shouting homophobic slurs.

He added: ‘In my mind I didn’t think it was a real sword until we came out later and police were on the scene and there was blood and the hat on ground.’

Police had originally said the victim, who was stabbed in the hand, was wearing the hat, but later changed their statement.

They are now said to be hunting for the sword-wielding assailant after he fled the scene and are searching security footage from the night after they were called to the scene around 9:50 p.m. to reports of a stabbing.

Officer Robert Rueca told The San Francisco Chronicle that the unnamed victim, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, was approached by another man and the two got into an argument.

MAGA (Make America Great Again) was the slogan of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign but the hats have become the subject of increasing controversy in recent months.

Sounds like a bit of an overreaction to a personal slight.

It also sounds like maybe the guy went out looking for trouble and found it.

Forensics can likely determine which of the two was wearing the hat.

Looking at how bloody the hat is that may be difficult to determine especially if it’s relatively new which it looks to be.

Getting a sample that’s completely uncontaminated from the band may be an uphill battle and basically all that leaves is the possbility of hairs with a follicular tag.

Attacked by MAGA hat guy in San Fran…

Yeah right.

Next fake please.

This must be the first sighting ever of a MAGA hat in SF.

Self defense. If someone attacks you, do everything you can to make that person stop, even if it means chopping his hand off. Hopefully, this will make others think twice. Soyboy is lucky it wasn’t a gun.

In California, steal a gun from a cop and shoot a girl in the back, no problem if your an illegal, get off scott free not a care in the world, hell he could turn around and sue the state for harassment, but attack a man because of his hat, or faith, and he defends himself…watch out, their gonna hunt you down like the dog you are. Seriously. California has illegals raping, drunk driving, smuggling children as sex slaves, but this guy that defends himself he is the problem.

No, that attitude will land you in prison. In most states you cannot exceed the level of force required to stop the attack based on the reasonable person standard.

In most states you cannot use deadly force unless first deadly force has been threatened or used on you.
