Over $18,000 raised for Utah student bullied for wearing MAGA hat

(KUTV) — The mother of a Utah high school student, who was bullied and spat on for wearing a hat in support of President Trump, started a GoFundMe account for him after many people reached out in support. As of Monday morning, the account has raised over $18,000.

2News first reported the incident Sunday night and spoke with 15-year-old Braxton McElhaney.

On his first day back at school, McElhaney, a sophomore at West Jordan High School, was taunted by other students and spit on because of his “Make America Great Again” hat.

“My son, a patriotic 15-year-old, was brutally bullied during his second week back and school for wearing his MAGA hat and we have received a massive outpouring of support from people asking to do something nice for him,” Meshyalah McElhaney, the boy’s mom, posted on GoFundMe.com.

Many people have asked for us to launch a GoFundMe to take him on a special trip or do something nice for him. We are so thankful for everyone’s kindness.

Cellphone video taken inside the school captured the confrontation on Sept. 3.

“The two girls, they kept antagonizing me, calling me a racist, saying I look r—–ed, and calling me a white supremacist, white privilege, because I was wearing my Trump hat,” Braxton McElhaney said.

Meshyalah McElhaney said she can barely get through watching the video.

“It brings me to tears every time I watch it, and I can’t believe that people who are on that side and try to push love and acceptance and toleration of other people, and then they are so against somebody who is just a patriot,” she said.

Braxton McElhaney’s family told 2News the school acted quickly to investigate.

Sure they did.

    • As right as you are, it won’t go anywhere.
      As a badged peace officer,I was spit on more than a few times.
      It was always added to the charges but was all but once dropped.
      The one instance got a mental exam.
      Prosecutors didn’t even want to bring it up, let alone testify about it.
      In other words: NOTHING BURGER

      Hell today they’re throwing friggin bombs at them and nothing happens.

      I’m damn glad not to be doing that anymore.
      Ferguson changed everything.
      We all knew that by about day 2.

    • Skimming through Utah Code, the threat of violence is a Class B misdemeanor and the spit on the face is a Class A misdemeanor. The use of unlawful force is a separate Class B misdemeanor.

      There’s more to it, including the state taking control over the girls. I’m all for it. Come down hard, throw the book at them. This unwanted behavior is a learned behavior. Given the severity of her actions, I would be surprised if this is her first altercation.

  1. When the adults refuse a hard line to be drawn, the rats will continue to push the boundaries. Here the spawn have learned it is permissible to instigate aggressive behaviors for it is likely that if they receive any consequence it will be light and transitory. The boy exhibited an extraordinary level of self-control. Perhaps it was he was afraid. Nonetheless, that puts 100% of the focus on the two girls. (if he had taken a more serious action, he would then be found at blame just as much as the others and would just as likely made punishment less severe against the girls)

    A criminal charge against the girl would send shockwaves through the student body, school admin, and the community. I am in favor of throwing the book at the girl and perhaps the other girl for she too got a few digs in.

  2. Deathray, I know that unicorns exist, because I’ve had 3 friends that are/were coppers. However, I can’t associate with those blokes in public, to do so would *definitely* taint their personal record as fraternizing with a baddie. Mind you, I’ve met more than my share of plain crooked coppers too, criminals in blue shirts. I’m buggered if I can make out how the honest cops don’t just draw their gun on their crooked colleagues and blow the arsehole’s brains out. That alone, apart from other aspects of the job, must account for job strain and burnout for some. Shit, I reckon that not doing your job properly is a form of corruption, cop or other public servant, let alone really doing evil. Subjectively applying arbitrary attitudes to policing, whether their own or what they were indoctrinated with by statists at the academy, is also corruption. Okay, apology to Phil for going off topic, I had to say that though, when seeing Deathray’s historical comment. I can’t watch the video, but hope the MAGA kid gets his revenge.

  5. Criminal charges may be applied, but if they’re not “mysteriously dropped” somewhere in the process, once in court they’ll be reduced.

    A civil suit, however, won’t. If the offender is a minor, then the parents are the real target. Contact an attorney and strike a contingency 50/50 deal instead of the usual 35/65 – that should spark strong interest by the atty. At the very least the ‘rents will be out whatever they wind up spending on defense.

    And, depending on Utah laws, the school, and perahps “school management” personally, may also be fair game for a civil suit if they take no disciplinary action for obvious and documented criminal activity on premises.

    It’s way past time American adopt a “take no prisoners” attitude on this sort of thing and use the same kind of lawfare against them they’re been using against us.

    What this guy ‘s parents should have taught him is that home schooling is the ONLY way to get a useful ed-ah-mah-ca-shun.

    • a woman’s cunt is as sensitive as a man’s nuts, so have at it! I too was the consummate cub/weblo/scout to Life. Same as my brother. Then fumes got to me, car fumes and perfumes… Funny how many men of our generation have mothers that taught their sons the same way, “Don’t start the fight, but you better damn end it and standing.” My mother taught my brother and me to fight dirty Irish Indian style, the nastier the better. Having four sisters was like having female sparring partners, taught my brother and me most of how to fight a female.

    1-Pay for a lawyer for a civil suit against the girl(s) and their parents
    2-Set up a home schooling, possibly even a neighborhood community schooling (nearby like minded friends and neighbors), bypass the Gubberment cess skrool altogether.
