Man Rips MAGA Hat Off Teen’s Head in Restaurant, Throws Drink in His Face

Man Rips MAGA Hat Off Teen’s Head in Restaurant, Throws Drink in His Face

“‘This is going to go great in my mother f****** fireplace, b****”

A 16 year old boy was getting a bite to eat with friends at a hamburger restaurant in San Antonio, Texas this week, when a man approached their table, ripped the ‘Make America Great Again’ hat off his head, and threw a large cup of soda in his face. The man then proudly strode away with the hat.

Joe Galli of News 4 San Antonio filed this report:

VIDEO: Teen attacked at Whataburger for wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hat

Police are investigating after a teen says he was verbally attacked and assaulted at a Whataburger for wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

In the video, you can see a man throw a drink in 16-year-old Hunter Richard’s face before leaving the restaurant with his hat. Hunter said some of his hair was pulled during the assault.

“I support my President and if you don’t let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off. I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me,” he said.

Hunter was with his friends at the Whataburger off Nacogdoches and Thousand Oaks Tuesday night when it happened. They say the attack was unprovoked.

The man has been identified as Kino Jimenez. The Daily Mail provides a transcript of the exchange:

Jimenez allegedly pulled off Richard’s cap off his head, grabbing some of his hair with it, before going off on him.

He then threw Richard’s cup filled with ice and soda at him yelling ‘F*** the President!’ in his filmed attack that has gone viral.

‘You ain’t even support s**t n****,’ Jimenez says as he walks away with the MAGA hat in hand.

Shaking the hat at the teen one last time he jeers: ‘This is going to go great in my mother f****** fireplace, b****’.

‘Alright, have fun with it,’ one of the teenagers at the table calls out.

You can see the video in the tweet below, strong language warning, obviously:

Some people on the left fail to see what’s wrong with this. Marc Lamont Hill is seen regularly on cable news:

Jiminez’s employer sees the situation differently and has fired him as a result.

Jessica McBride reports at Heavy:

Kino Jimenez, Accused MAGA Attacker, Fired by Rumble Bar

Kino Jimenez, who is accused of attacking a teen wearing a MAGA hat, has been fired by Rumble, a San Antonio bar, which wrote that its employee’s alleged actions “go against everything that this establishment stands for.” After the establishment’s comment thread started filling up with remarks about the MAGA incident, Rumble deleted its Facebook page.

The man’s name is also Kino Ahuitzotl Jimenez, and he previously wrote negative comments about Trump on social media. A now deleted page had him affiliated with the Texas Green Party. However, a leader in the Texas Green Party told Heavy that the party has now banned Jimenez because of the video.

Here’s the statement released by the bar:

“It came to our attention earlier this evening that a part-time employee was captured on cell phone video assaulting another person at a local eatery. The assault took place, presumably, because this employee did not agree with the other individuals political stance,” the bar wrote.

“We have since terminated this employee, as his actions go against everything that this establishment stands for. Rumble has, and always will be, a bar that is as inclusive as any establishment could possibly be. THIS BAR IS A SAFE SPACE FOR EVERYONE! No matter your race, creed, ethnicity, sexual identity, and political stance, you are welcomed here! We do not condone the actions or behavior that were displayed in the cell phone video, and we never will. If you have any questions or concerns please message us privately. We support and appreciate your business.”

If we had an honest media, Democrats (Maxine Waters comes to mind), would have microphones and cameras thrust into their faces and would be asked if they condone this type of behavior.

UPDATE: Jimenez was apparently arrested last night, charged and released. From My San Antonio:

SAPD: Suspect in assault over MAGA hat at Whataburger arrested

30-year-old Kino Jimenez was located by robbery task force detectives in Universal City, police said, and taken into custody on a warrant for theft of person.

Here’s a video update from a local news source:

LOVE TRUMPS HATE. Except when it assaults you, slanders you and steals your personal property.

While my wife wasn’t having my MAGA hat at our July 4th parade, I did wear it to Lowe’s afterwards. I got a few long stares and a few compliments. What greater day to express your personal opinion and political support than Independence Day!

This incident – a lawyer’s dream

    Ask Bill Ayers what the real consequences are for those on the left. First let him count his stack of money.

    Sure he got fired, but he’ll be hired before the end of the year at a better paying, probably ngo funded or even government funded job. One. Way. Street.

    The sooner folks understand that the sooner they’ll realize this is just the beginning of our next civil war.

      txvet2 in reply to forksdad. | July 6, 2018 at 6:13 pm

      It could be a while. He’s been indicted on a felony charge, and other sources claim that he’s facing 6 months to 2 years.

        Yep. This State Jail Felony basically wrote itself:

        Texas Penal Code Section 31.03(a):
        (a) A person commits an offense if he unlawfully appropriates property with intent to deprive the owner of property.

        (b) Appropriation of property is unlawful if:

        (1) it is without the owner’s effective consent;


        Texas Penal Code Section 31.03(e)(4)(B)

        (e) Except as provided by Subsection (f), an offense under this section is:

        (4) a state jail felony if:

        (B) regardless of value, the property is stolen from the person of another or from a human corpse or grave, including property that is a military grave marker;


        By the by: “State Jail” time is “day for day.” There is no “good time” credit, like county time or Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice. You serve out the WHOLE sentence.

        Throw the book at a couple of these idiots, make them do a stint in the State Jail facility, and the rest will stop doing stupid stuff like this.

        forksdad in reply to txvet2. | July 7, 2018 at 1:46 pm

        It has to be a felony charge in most states. He’s caught on tape taking something from the person of another. Most states it doesn’t matter if it is by force. The laws were put in place in the seventies and eighties to stop pickpockets. But it works just fine in cases like this. Add his assault to the kid on top of the felony and it looks bad.

        Ayers bombed a police car, publicly said he was only sorry he did not kill more people and was the close confidant and mentor of the president.

        Watch in a couple years he’ll be in the pay of some left leaning group or church. Hell they might even hire him to mentor youth.

I’m really hoping the cops make him wear a MAGA hat for his mugshot.

Is it just me or is Marc Lamont Hill a proponent of assaulting white teenagers?

Assault and theft. No community service please, this sort of garbage behavior won’t stop until it starts being slapped down, and slapped down hard. Best done by the courts, but if they piss away their duty it will eventually be pushback in the vein of eye for an eye.

Since the Libs are so in favor of “hate crime” added punishment, is there any way to go all Allanski on such incidents and apply those laws as well?

San Antonio is a deep blue sanctuary city. The San Antonio PD and Bear County Attorney have no ineterest in this case and no doubt believe the young man got what he had coming.

    Tom Servo in reply to Escaped from RI. | July 6, 2018 at 12:22 pm

    Actually – today Jimenez has been arrested and charged with theft, for taking the hat. Gonna be hard to beat the charges, since everyone online has already seen the evidence of him doing it. Throwing the drink could easily become an assault charge, although that hasn’t happened yet.

    And since he’s got a criminal record with multiple convictions, he could easily end up doing some serious jail time over this. This is Texas, after all, not California.

      RobM in reply to Tom Servo. | July 6, 2018 at 12:34 pm

      Yeah, I’m really shocked San Antonio pressed charges. Good for them. I’ll have to reexamine my harsh comments about them down there. We’ll see what happens.

So I can throw a drink in the face of Marc Hill (and other libs) and that is OK. Provided of course, I am doing so because I feel that the other person represents some sort of evil. ANd I can do this with someone wearing a Black Lives Matter item because I feel they are racist against white people and advocate murder of cops? Good to know. (Sheesh!!!!)

    Um. No.

    For reasons of civility, first and foremost.

    In terms of Texas statute, it would be a “simple assault” under Texas Penal Code 22.01(a)(3):

    Sec. 22.01. ASSAULT. (a) A person commits an offense if the person:

    (3) intentionally or knowingly causes physical contact with another when the person knows or should reasonably believe that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative.

    It’s a “Class C” misdemeanor punishable by $500 fine. Just don’t do it to an “elderly individual” (person over age 65). That makes it a “Class A” misdemeanor punishable by up to 365 days imprisonment AND up to $4,000 fine.

    Texas Penal Code 22.01(c)

    (c) An offense under Subsection (a)(2) or (3) is a Class C misdemeanor, except that the offense is:

    (1) a Class A misdemeanor if the offense is committed under Subsection (a)(3) against an elderly individual or disabled individual, as those terms are defined by Section 22.04;

The left is doing a great job of desensitizing us to this type of behavior.

ahad haamoratsim | July 6, 2018 at 11:37 am

Kino Jimenez intentionally used force to permanently deprive another of his property (the hat and the soda), without privilege to do so. Why has he not been arrested and charged? We used to call those actions robbery and battery. The petty theft of the hat and soda is a lesser included offense, but the battery, if memory serves, is a separate offense.

He has been arrested per San Antonio Express-News.

His defense:
a) It seemed like a good idea at the time.
b) Trump made me do it.
c) Bush’s fault.

    Thanks for the link.

    After reading the article, I continued to scroll down the page. Jaysus, me beads!! Looks to me as though San Antonio is about the most violent and corrupt city on the planet.

    As another famous law professor blogger asks, “Why are leftie cities such cesspits …?

      Tom Servo in reply to Oregon Mike. | July 6, 2018 at 12:25 pm

      San Antonio is Texas’ very own little piece of Mexico.

      txvet2 in reply to Oregon Mike. | July 6, 2018 at 6:04 pm

      You won’t find any homeless camps, drug needles or piles of feces or trash on the streets of San Antonio. At least I never have, and I’ve been in most sections of the city at one time or another. This isn’t the left coast. We do have a large illegal population, which means plenty of crime (and plenty of leftist agitation), but mostly it doesn’t affect the northern sections outside of the universities. In any event, that has nothing to do with this incident, which involves a native Hispanic resident of a suburban community with a long record of DUI arrests (and who is described by family as a bully) assaulting a teen for political reasons.

    ahad haamoratsim in reply to TX-rifraph. | July 6, 2018 at 4:10 pm

    Why are you letting Bibi Netanyahu off the hook? I’m sure Jiminez and his supporters won’t.

The guy looks like a scrawny little bitch, and that nut-tickler on his chin would make a great handle for bashing his smug face into the ground. Seriously why don’t people man up and beat this shit down?

    Because when you do, they whine about “their rights being violated” and run to get in front of a camera to claim that “they’re the victim of a campaign of racism and the victim of hate crimes, as well as there being a white privilege that is impossible to overcome.

    forksdad in reply to Paul. | July 7, 2018 at 1:49 pm

    Because it’s a sixteen year old kid against a thirty year old yardbird with a record. He knows to jump them getting out of the booth if they tried.

    For goodness sakes, internet tough guy is a stupid game.

Every wonse in a while I wonder why don’t these things happen in front of me?

“So went out for a 2am snack…”

Until the bar closes I’m just a little too intimidating.

Nothing good happens after Midnight. Tell your people.

    hrhdhd in reply to Arminius. | July 6, 2018 at 12:53 pm

    Yes, I heard my mother saying that in my head when I read this story. (Also, I had an 11 p.m. curfew until I was 21.)

    MajorWood in reply to Arminius. | July 6, 2018 at 1:39 pm

    My basic rule of thumb is that “model citizens” aren’t out and about at 2:30 AM.

    Things will get better when we are once again allowed to point out that someone was just being an idiot without endless rationalizing, justifying, and various accusations from the left.

      txvet2 in reply to MajorWood. | July 6, 2018 at 6:10 pm

      A lot of places that employ teens don’t close until midnight or 1:00 AM. They could very well have been working. I haven’t seen any story specifying what the kids were doing before they went to the Whataburger, because it isn’t relevant. They had every right to be there and to enjoy their meal unmolested.

      Arminius in reply to MajorWood. | July 7, 2018 at 7:55 am

      It depends on what they’re doing.

      Some jobs are 24 hours a day.

      My rule of thumb when I was in the nav and could do anything I wanted was, do I want my grandmother seeing this in the news?

      Arminius in reply to MajorWood. | July 7, 2018 at 8:16 am

      Maybe I should let it go, but it still chaps my hide that Trump let Clinton get away with lecturing about sending the USNS Comfort to Puerto Rico. He sent the Kearsarge and Bunker Hill. I don’t know how many Marines the Bunker Hill can treat but the Kearsarge IS a 600 bed hospital ship. Then he sent the Wasp.

      Do you think we send troops ashore to fight without a significant medical capability?

      “Hell To Pay: Operation Downfall and the Invasion of Japan, 1945-1947 is the most comprehensive examination of the myriad complex issues that comprised the strategic plans for the American invasion of Japan. U.S. planning for the invasion and military occupation of Imperial Japan was begun in 1943, two years before the dropping of atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki…

      If we can plan for the invasion of Japan, we can plan for a hurricane/typhoon. And I highly recommend you read it if only to learn how we planned to handle the casualties. The T-AH needs a port, which just ain’t happening after a hurricane. The Wasp class, or really any big deck amphib, is self sustaining.

    RodFC in reply to Arminius. | July 6, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    To be fari, he may have been working the night shift or been doing some late homework for the next day. There are legitimate reasons people are out and about at that time.

      Arminius in reply to RodFC. | July 7, 2018 at 9:22 am

      True, I have stood many a mid watch. But I could always plan ahead to have at least bread and lunch meat on hand. And Sriracha to spice it up. Or maybe some za or soup. I have never once felt the need to head out for a 2:30 am snack. If it’s not in the refrigerator or pantry I’ll wait six hours.


Clearly, people have heard the call to go after Trump’s supporters, be it in Texas, Vancouver, or Denmark.

We’ll see how the wisdom of this position plays out.

And the MSM machine moves straight to the spin cycle. From a MSN pointer:

“A 16-year-old named (deleted by me) has been identified as the teen who had his hat stolen. On Thursday, an anonymous source told local news station KENS5 that the assault may have been sparked by the teenagers making racist remarks. KENS 5 later removed the quotes due to questions regarding their legitimacy.”

At best an explanation, but they seem to so want it to be an excuse.

Maybe I’ll call up KENS5 and tell them that I swore I heard Jimmie yell “Viva Zapata.” Sure, it makes no sense, but then neither has any other part.


    I’ve been following this story and I hope, hope, hope it will be covered all the way to the end so we find out the final truth…
    (probably won’t be, though)

    I’ve seen a facebook screen shot of the post from the alleged witness…(AFTER the news reported on this attack, not before)

    The witness claims he was eating with his family at 2am and over heard the teens loudly making racist comments…a another dinner even asked them to stop (we have yet to hear from that “phantom dinner”)
    The witness didn’t see the attack…he left with his family before the action started.

    A lot of people have seized upon this “eye witness testimony” as PROOF POSITIVE the MAGA hat wearing teen is a bigot and was asking for it!!!!! Jimenez, the anti-racist, came down on the teens like an avenging angel!! But we know this is pure BS…

    The reason Mr Jimenez snatched the hat and threw the drink on this kid was…Jimenez is a F’n Bully…he knew he could get away with it! He knew a table full of skinny teens wasn’t gonna do shit!

    Watch the video…Jimenez is smiling as he attacks…he’s not outraged. As he walks away he does the “bully strut”. Before Jimenez leaves, he turns back and gives a “You want the hat back ? Come get it” look…

    This kind of crap really irritates me. When I was growing up, my little brother got picked on by A-holes like this…as the big brother it was my duty to defend him. (I’ve got the scars to prove it) Never understood why some people want to be such D-heads…

    BUT…Check out Jimenez “The Badd Azz” booking picture…he looks like he’s about to cry….! I find that…F’ing hilarious!!!

      Arminius in reply to tgrondo. | July 7, 2018 at 9:47 am

      Now that he’s been dead for 15 years I suppose I can tell you about my uncle. If you didn’t know him you would have thought he was a racist. He wasn’t. Oh, he was promiscuous with the n word. But he didn’t hate black people. He hated affirmative action. He eventually became a battalion fire chief in a major west coast city. But he was denied a lot of well deserved promotions along the way.

      I have a pic of him and his “posse.” It looks like the freakin’ UN. All he cared about, like me, is if you could carry him down a ladder.

      I never heard him use the n word in public. And it wasn’t because he didn’t have the balls. After the earthquake he crawled along the 880 saving who he could. He could have cared less if you were black or white. I loved that man.

      But he never spoke that word in public. In private he used it like, black people?

      MajorWood in reply to tgrondo. | July 7, 2018 at 11:52 am

      Well, he shaved his beard before the booking photo. Surprised he didn’t dye his hair blonde as well. I guarantee the “old look” is a thing of the past. Sounds like his relatives aren’t too happy with him either based on reports of visits to a house where he used to live, I assume by reporters and not people with torches and pitchforks, yet. When the BT2000 popped Devyn Holmes in the noggin on facebook live, I thought that I had seen the end-all of damning video evidence, but old Jimmie might have done it one better by adding in audio commentary as well.

      Elliott in reply to tgrondo. | July 7, 2018 at 3:48 pm

      The “eye witness testimony” given by an anonymous “family” to a television station has been withdrawn by the station as unverified. My guess is that the Whataburger store video during the assault showed no other patrons in the store nor did customer receipts from that period of business and the police told the station so. This is typical “it could have happened” smear of a trio of always hungry teenage boys who walked down the street from their home (this is a large residential area) to a hamburger joint while they were visiting and staying up all night having fun on a summer night. As a Texas parent of now grown sons these boys behavior looking for food, walking down the street on a summer night, doing teenager socializing, is perfectly normal for where they live. The moron of the story is of course the angry putz twice their age seeing no adult to defend them who then robbed them while on camera video, cursed them, assaulted them, and then skulked out to be identified to the police by his own family as a 10 X felon loser.

      Milhouse in reply to tgrondo. | July 8, 2018 at 9:37 am

      Even if it were true it would be irrelevant. If you are offended by others’ speech or lawful behavior you are entitled to go up to them and express your disapproval; you are not entitled to react with violence no matter how offended you feel, and if you do you are the aggressor and the criminal, not the other person.

      This is the point missed by those who defended Little Saint Trayvon on the grounds that he felt offended by being followed as if he were some kind of criminal, and therefore was justified in retaliating by attacking the offender and ultimately trying to kill him.

I’m starting to see a meme of this photo, cropped so that it shows only his smiling face while holding the MAGA hat, and with the Caption “Latinos for Trump .”

Wow, awesome bravery there, Mr. Coke-thrower. How would you like YOUR eye permanently damaged by having some moron fling an ice cube into it?

Escaped from RI | July 6, 2018 at 11:57 pm

Wow. I’m shocked. Glad to see that even in the blue, sanctuary city parts of Texas this won’t be tolerated. Not sure that would have been the case in Austin.

If this stuff starts happening between adults in Texas someone is going to get shot.

    Elliott in reply to Escaped from RI. | July 7, 2018 at 3:59 pm

    San Antonio is a tourist city. Abusing teenagers eating a hamburger in an iconic Texas business chain is not tourist friendly nor are national stories like this. I would think the tourist and business interests of the city demanded this cretin be rounded up and made an example.

I hope this isn’t directed at me. Because I know just how much work this is going to be. It’s not going to be effing easy.

Orwellington | July 7, 2018 at 6:50 pm

Since Jiminez has a long list of priors, I would be very surprised if he didn’t get some jail time for his actions. For picking on a trio of trapped teenagers, he’ll definitely be singled out for some extra special attention in prison.
