“Imagine screaming at a stranger in public because of a hat and thinking THEY’RE the hateful one.”
A New York-based journalist was lambasted as an “intolerant dullard” after she claimed to have yelled at a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat during the 2019 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival this weekend.
“just yelled at a prick with the audacity to wear a fucking make america great again hat in the middle of a jazz festival,” wrote SB Nation writer Natalie Weiner in a tweet that was subjected to the dreaded Twitter “ratio.”

Her tweet received slightly more than 1,000 likes and more than 8,000 comments – most of them negative.
Compounding Weiner’s blunder in the eyes of her many critics was a follow-up tweet, which many commenters found more egregious than the first.
“i don’t understand how people can be so hateful i really don’t,” the former Billboard writer tweeted.

The response to Weiner was visceral, especially from conservatives.
“Imagine screaming at a stranger in public because of a hat and thinking THEY’RE the hateful one. You’re not cool, brave, dignified, or justified in doing this. You’re just a cunt,” tweeted Blaire White, a transgender conservative YouTube personality.

Conservative actress Mindy Robinson called Weiner a “future cat lady.”
Fox Nation host David Webb dropped some knowledge on the liberal writer and jazz aficionado:

Weiner was particularly disturbed by the proximity of the presumed President Donald Trump supporter to “Soul Queen of New Orleans” Irma Thomas, who was performing at the festival.
“he was walking to see irma thomas and he doesn’t deserve to be within a 10 mile radius of irma thomas,” she tweeted.

Last year, therapists indicated a rise in what they unofficially diagnosed as “Trump Anxiety Disorder.” In a 2017 essay, clinical psychologist Jennifer Panning – who is credited with originally coining the term – described the symptoms of “Trum Anxiety disorder” as worrying about the state of the country, feeling helpless and out of control and spending too much time on social media.
