Would They Wear Those ‘MAGA’ Hats If They Knew Its African Meaning?




by G. Brown

Those red hats emblazoned with M-A-G-A  was indeed a pretty good branding idea.  The color red represents the wearer’s political identity as Republican and the acronym sums up their mission-Make America Great Again.

Actually, it had all the components to be genius as far as branding goes except for one small caveat.  MAGA isn’t just an acronym it’s also a word.

If you humbly seek Google…or Ask Quora or any of those more learned web locales, the all-knowing internet universe rewards you in a delightful way…

Yep…the acronym that has come to symbolize White supremacy, racism, hatred and all things depictable is actually a word in the native language of Africans. The only way this story gets any better is by the meaning of that word.  Maga in Nigerian means you’ve been duped…played…taken for a fool.

There are a lot of ways to parse that information.  The most extreme is that the Trump camp is so full of evil genius that it intentionally chose MAGA to correctly label the people who follow him all while disingenuously manipulating them and controlling them with dog whistles that feed into their basest fears.  Trump as the evil genius who intentionally did this?  Well, he may consider himself a “very stable genius” which brings the count to a total of one who believes that.

Or the more simple answer is that you didn’t know MAGA meant stupid in another language.  That answer makes it so much more satisfying to think that the one word you randomly chose to represent your whole organization literally means stupid.

If it’s a blunder, then it’s not the first time a brand campaign or slogan came up with a catchy acronym that had double meaning…


But if the origin of Maga was intentional to reduce the people who follow him to mere sheeple, then that is truly evil and shows a level of contempt for fellow human beings on par with Satan.

No worries then, since Trump has made it clear that he is even above Satan…

started trending because many say Trump elevating himself to a deity is clearly a psychotic break and he has to go.

But in light of this type of heresy, Trump still has those willing to defend him…

which brings us to the logical conclusion that whether MAGA was chosen as an inside joke or a complete blunder, the people who still think that this man is a genius, working to better America and sane, are uniquely qualified to wear those Maga hats.

    Trump is the new Hitler, minus the oven. He has ignited anger and violence out of white people the same way Hitler ignited anger and violence out of white Germans in the 1930’s. The result is new klux klansmen like Connor Betts who choose to grab guns and murder innocent people, including his own sister. President number 45 does nothing about white domestic terrorism because he is the ultimate instigator of all white domestic terrorism.

    One more fact, the National Rifle Association (NRA) donated $30 million dollars to Trump’s 2016 Presidential campaign.

      @ NBA Is Fixed Hi NBA Your comment “Trump is the new Hitler, minus the oven.” is pretty much on point. But realize that the GOP has always stood for what we’re seeing now. Go back to Reagan, Nixon, even Barry Goldwater and all they had secret conversations that once made public shared the same plan…make the rich richer and the minorities poorer. Trump didn’t create this dogma…he was just the right stooge to put a face and voice to it. That’s why the other GOP members remain silent through this all, at the end of the day Trump is doing their bidding–giving the rich tax cuts, stoking racial flames and suppressing the rights of minorities and women. Thanks for sharing your insights as always NBA….always great to hear what you are thinking. Take care

    This is not Africa, this is America. In this country, MAGA means Make America Great Again. That statement is code word for “Restore White Power.” The red MAGA hat is the 21st century version of white KKK bed sheets. All of the white people who wear red MAGA hats are members of the new klux klan.

      @Shawn J. Hi Shawn. I so much prefer the African word than the American acronym. LOL. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us Shawn.
