The rest of the story behind the MAGA hat

The headline in the Arizona Republic told the story well, "He had a MAGA hat in his truck. So she slashed his tire."

Actually, it was an SUV.

The story began, "Nick Dugas left work at Paradise Valley Mall at 1:30 on a recent Saturday afternoon and noticed his SUV listing to the left."

Dugas works in mall security, He was able to review the video surveillance and tracked down the woman, 18, who slashed the tire.

On his SUV.

The story went on and on about courts, police, and the usual police reporting.

In Paragraph 24, the real story came out about the man in the MAGA hat.

Reporter Karina Bland wrote, "I wrote about Dugas last year when he adopted a homeless teenage boy he had discovered sleeping behind one of the retail stores where he worked."

Oh?

Now that is interesting. Dugas saw this kid sleeping on his belly and the 6-foot-6 man bent down to help him. He fed him, gained his confidence, and learned the truth.

Bland wrote, "The boy began to talk. His mom took off when he was 2. He lived with his dad. But he had run away a week ago. He told him why.

"Dugas listened in silence. He had grown up in Portland, Oregon, with attentive parents and a big sister in a nice house. They had taken family vacations and camped every summer. While he might not have had everything he wanted, he had everything he needed.

"Sitting at the table, the boy had inched up his shirt to show Dugas his back. There were lash marks, 63 of them, where he had been hit with a broken car antenna."

Dugas took the kid in. This required filing paperwork, getting cleared by the state as a foster parent, and getting permission from the father to take the kid in. Dugas eventually adopted him. Last June was his first Father's Day as a father.

That was the man whose tire was slashed.

  1. And they still don't care. And they never will.

    This isn't about right or wrong, it is about power.

    Their compassion is as fake as everything else about them. It is a pathway to power and nothing else.

    What the good guys need to understand is that if they do not seek power, it will end up in the hands of people like the tire slasher.

    And just what do you think people like her do when they have real power? Is tire slashing the end? Or the beginning?

    1. This sums it all up nicely. The thrill of ordering a former master to clear the dishes then serve dessert to them on his knees is what they seek at first. Then...

    2. Only this guy looks nothing like a former master of any kind. It isn't even about revenge. Power remains the object. Everything else is a smokescreen.

      Remember the vast majority of people guillotined during the French Revolution were peasants. And they made up the majority of murders in all of the communist regimes as well.

      Class is a pretext, not a motive.

    3. It was the hat that set her off I think not the person. All these ideologies produce an us and them mentality in which the us is always considered under existential threat by the them. Because she took independent action she would not be considered a good candidate for Party membership but wearing a suicide best would be a suitable task. I didn't know about slaughtering peasants in the FR. Stalin killed millions of them because as independent minded owners of productive land they were impossible to control unless collectivized or dead. He was a pretty binary thinker, like most fanatics.

    4. It's also about hate and envy, 2 emotions the Left needs to survive.

      Hate because some people need to blame somebody for their own broken lives.

      Envy because they want what somebody else has without having to earn it.

    5. I somewhat disagree that power is the only motive. As one DA stupidly said, "They have to have space to destroy" or something like that. There is in a lot of people a fervent desire to hurt others and in our current world, they are pretty much free to do so. Good Luck, America, because God has left the building.

    6. Satans' greatest victory is convincing people he doesn't exist. Whether you are of a religious bent or not, there is such a thing as EVIL in the world, and we see it every day.

  2. What’s an 18 year old woman doing in a mall carpark with a knife capable of slashing an SUV tire’s sidewall anyway?

  5. The worst part of the Trump cult is the well-meaning dupes that fall for the orange con man. If this Paul Blart helped a homeless man, he already manifested more humanity than Trump or his family.

    1. You know NOTHING about Donald Trump and what he has done. Why? Well first because you are a fool, but also Donald Trump does not demand attention when he does them. He has true humility. He has sent his private plane on many occasions to help. I have read a dozen stories in the last year of things he has done to help the least of us, rth truly needy and desperate, not fools like you.

    2. The worst part of the uniparty cult is the ill-meaning dupes that fall for the uniparty hog hogshit. If this shit brained tire slasher had ever helped a homeless man, she'd already have manifested more humanity than the uniparty scum hogs or the idiots who suck on the uniparty hog nipples.

    3. Nony.. Give it a rest. I like to read Surber. He makes some good points. You however, contribute nothing to the conversation. There are plenty of NeverTrump sites you could hang out on and contribute your venom. It's old and tiring.

  6. Thanks for more details, Don.

    Dems know one thing - MAGA hat wearers are bad.
    Dems suffer from Democrat Derangement Syndrome.

  7. What a beautiful story. As one who has, at different times, taken in children who were is situations where they were truly suffering, I am thrilled to know that this man is a kindred spirit. Thank you, Don, for sharing these important details!
