I do believe my own eyes, though, and the MAGA hat and smirk that teenager’s wearing put the lie to the both-sides spin being applied to the story of the Covington Catholic High School boys’ confrontation with a Native American activist. No matter if this photo represents only part of the story of what happened in front of the Lincoln Memorial last weekend, it is what it is and nothing will change that.
On the larger subject of MAGA hats and what they represent, I’ll just say that every time I see someone wearing one I expect a young boy in a brown shirt to jump up on a beer garden table and start singing Tomorrow Belongs to Me. Which, like almost everything people who wear MAGA hats stand for, sounds better in the original German.
