That Joey Salads is a troll. I think he makes his money off Youtube so you have to troll hard to get paid now. A lot of peoples channels are being demonetized, especially conservative/right leaning political channels.
The other folks' reaction to the spitting is encouraging.
As for the hat-grabbing and throwing incident, I think it went down about as I would expect and probably as the video making dude anticipated, BUT...
BUT... had he wanted to push the issue, I wonder if he could have made a citizen's arrest on the other guy who assaulted him or committed battery against him on the street like that?
It is probably a crime to snatch the hat off some stranger's head and throw it to the ground, although the fact that the attacker did this so quickly without even interrupting the walking pace of either party indicates that this was NOT a challenge to fight.
Do you know how many Obama hats and t-shirts I saw right here in the Republican South especially Georgia, and I never saw anyone spit on them or try to assault them for wearing it, I think it's safe to say that people of the Democrat persuasion are more likely to act out with violence, less law-abiding, than Republicans.
He wasn't even wearing the red hat either, that hat looks white.
