MAGA: A distinctive ID

Print Article

“MAGA” (Make America Great Again): a slogan that will live in infamy. What began as a catchy phrase that could fit easily on a baseball cap has devolved into a cynical identifier of those who failed to investigate the motives and ethics of the one who first coined the phrase.

Like the Confederate and Nazi flags, “MAGA” will serve chiefly to point out someone who is politically lazy and will believe whatever someone else tells them to believe. The irony of it is that once the Donald is no longer president, THEN will be the time that “MAGA” will truly be meaningful and necessary.
