Eating meat is cruel. Anyone who eats meat should be hung.
Parents smack their kids to punish the kid for hitting his brother.
Abortion is murder. Stone all who get abortions.
Inconsistency goes on and on.

If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

Would the assailant say that the victim was "asking for it" because of what he wore? That could open up some very interesting lines of discussion.
Wearing something knowing some people will get violently offended for a stupid reason - bad idea.
Going to a rally or protest, when you KNOW VIOLENCE IS GOING TO BREAK OUT - bad idea.
Some people, you bump into them on the subway, they understand it's an accident.
Some people, you bump into them on the subway, they think you're trying to start a fight with them; they want to fight. There is no prize for beating up someone one the subway, and you risk injury. Avoiding stupid people is the best strategy.

"then the tolerant will be destroyed"
This part isn't true.
It's like when the Supreme Court says, well we can't really have free speech because then people would advocate against war and then the war couldn't happen and then the US would be destroyed and then we wouldn't have free speech. So to preserve free speech, we must destroy it. QED.

Yeah there are people who will try to kill anyone who says they'd like to Make America Great Again. Make America Great Again's a good message. Crazy nut jobs are against it.
The solution is to wear your red hat and have a concealed carry permit.
If you get attacked, exercise your legal right to defend yourself against assault.

You're still rolling the dice that you will get a favorable reaction from police/prosecutor/judge, even if it was totally justified.
I also heard reports that, if you wear a MAGA hat in public, people will smash your car when you aren't around. Pretty cowardly, but not worth the risk.
