Wearing MAGA hat in a Union factory...

So...
I am LONG tired of the current liberal manufactured "stigma" of wearing a MAGA hat in support of President Trump. Some people have been verbally or physically attacked for doing so.

So I just started wearing one at work, and another outside work. :D

I work in a large automotive factory with a hourly plant population of 920 people, on three shifts. We are a Union shop, represented by the United Auto Workers (UAW).
It is generally a "left wing" environment, except when I'm there.

On Tuesday, 2/11/20 I started wearing this hat: https://shop.donaldjtrump.com/products/ ... sident-hat . It is super bright red, and can be seen about 100 yards away!

I think all my coworkers were surprised. :wink: What surprised me was that feedback/comments have been overwhelmingly POSITIVE.
Two communists walked past me , without making eye contact, and had a sad frown on... LOL!

My UAW committeeman walked past me, no eye contact, and replied to my greeting with the same.

This really should NOT be a revolutionary act. But it is.

A (reserved) Trump supporter told me: " You sure have big (backbone, etc.) wearing that here!" :lol:

I wear this one outside work: https://rightwinggear.com/collections/t ... ag-hat-red . I like this one better, but the one from Trumps campaign is brighter, and more "in your face!"

I will post any updates.

I have several Trump ball caps wear them most everywhere and have never had a negative comment. But then I live in rural Mercer County.

On Friday 2/14/20: I got two compliments before I left the Men's locker room in the morning.

While in the lunch line at the cafeteria, the Chaplain ( who is a Pipefitter, until someone needs religion) asked: "Any comments on your hat?"
I replied "yes, about a dozen, all positive."
He said "Well, I guess that's the silent majority."

I think he nailed it. :)

Reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. 23+ compliments.

I'm enjoying teaching the Trump haters "tolerance"... :lol:
