    Man harangues woman in park for wearing Puerto Rico shirt

    Another ignorant follower of Hair Fuhrer, no doubt...HF doesn't think PR is part of America. Almost 5 thousand dead after a hurricane more than a year ago, still no power in many areas, no help rebuilding and more atrocious neglect of US citizens.

    Caught on video: Man harangues woman in park for wearing Puerto Rico shirt; police officer does little to help
    The developments came after video of the harassment, which occurred last month, was posted on Facebook and went viral. The footage was recorded by Mia Irizarry, who was setting up a picnic in the park to celebrate her 24th birthday.

    As she was making the preparations, the man approached her and demanded to know why she was wearing her shirt, which also had the words "Puerto Rico" written on it.

    "You should not be wearing that in the United States of America," the man shouts, adding, "Are you a citizen? Are you a United States citizen?"

    Irizarry responds that she is wearing the shirt “because I can” and explains that Puerto Rico is part of the United States.

    “We don’t own Puerto Rico,” the man says. “Are you educated?” Puerto Rico has been a U.S. territory since 1898 and is classified as a Free Associated State or commonwealth.

    Irizarry, who remains polite throughout the confrontation, calling the man “sir,” then asked a nearby park police officer to help, saying "I am renting this area and he's harassing me about the shirt that I'm wearing."

    When the policeman did nothing, she again requests help. "Officer, I feel entirely uncomfortable, can you remove ... please officer." The officer is then seen walking away.
    "Officer, I'm renting, I paid for a permit for this area,” she adds. “I do not feel comfortable with him here, is there anything you can do?"


    The officer then approaches the man, who uses an expletive.

    As more police arrive, Irizarry tells them she still doesn't feel safe as the man continues his tirade. "You're not American, if you were American you wouldn't wear that,” he shouts. “You know that, right?"

    He probably thinks New Mexico is a foreign country, too.

    And maybe he thinks Rhode Island is actually an island.

    Puerto Rico isn't a state, you fool!

    They're a territory! Or a commonwealth! Or a dependency. Or a colony. Or a principality. Or a protectorate. Or a province. Or....HELL! I don't know what the fuck they are, either!!
