A man from Portland, Oregon was assaulted by a mob after he took his wife on a Saturday evening date. His only sin – forgetting to take off his “Make America Great Again” hat
Shortly after Luke Lenzner and his wife arrived at Growler’s Tap after midnight for what he described as a “date night”, the couple was quickly surrounded by an angry mob of leftists just outside the establishment’s patio when someone sucker-punched him.
According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by a local newspaper, Lenzer’s wife reportedly told the police that she had encouraged her husband to sport the MAGA both to show his support for President Trump and to see what kind of reaction others would have to it.
“I got mobbed by everybody that was in that bar outside. People came from the inside out — just circled me and my wife,” Lenzner told reporters. “Surrounding me, like literally surrounding me, pushing me. I’m just trying to get through, trying to stop the person from hitting me, from taking my hat, and then I get sucker-punched.”
“The lady asked me, ‘Is that a MAGA hat?” Lenzner told the reporters. “Then the next thing I know, she’s running around the corner attacking me, trying to take my hat off.”
When police finally arrived at the bar sometime around 12:50 am, they found large bruises on Lenzer’s face. A manhunt for the perpetrators ensued and police were able to locate two people in their 20s who witnesses said were involved in the assault.
One of the bartenders who witnessed the assault mentioned that Lenzner could’ve instigated the punch by pointing to his MAGA hat.
22-year-old Leopold Hauser and 23-year-old Adebisi Okuneye were arrested and charged with third-degree assault.
Lenzer’s wife said that she was proud of her husband for standing up for what he believed in.
