“‘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:
So went out for a 2am snack and my friend (wearing a MAGA hat) had his hat stolen and a drink thrown in his face (and mine, you can see my arms on the left of the video) pic.twitter.com/B3QjBFIxPk

Some people on the left fail to see what’s wrong with this. Marc Lamont Hill is seen regularly on cable news:
I actually don’t advocate throwing drinks on people. Not at all. But yes, i think MAGA hats (deliberately) reflect a movement that conjures racism, homophobia, xenophobia, etc. So yes, it’s a little harder to feel sympathy when someone gets Coca Cola thrown on him. https://t.co/ASlATau2PF

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.
