No matter where you go in America, you seem to find Donald Trump supporters playing the victim.

To this end, some of Trump's supporters are beginning to use a new app which essentially reviews restaurants and businesses on if they are safe for MAGA hat wearers, marking them as a safe space.

With conservatives in mind '63red Safe' works to provide reprieve to the people who decry the 'MAGAphobic' society we now live in. The app provides information on which restaurants are welcoming to conservatives and ones to steer clear of.

According to Apple's App Store, users are able to rate these establishments based on four key criteria, including whether or not they allow concealed firearms.

It reads:

Answer four quick questions about the business, and let fellow conservatives know if it's safe for them:

Does this business serve persons of every political belief?

Will this business protect its customers if they are attacked for political reasons?

Does this business allow legal concealed carry under this state's laws?

Does this business avoid politics in its ads and social media postings?

The app's developer Scott Wallace, told the Daily Beastthat he's worried about the "rise of the socialist goon squad" using the upcoming 2020 election and conservative fears of anti-fascist activists to illustrate the 'danger' they feel they're in.

Despite the fact that many modern conservatives seem to easily tout racist remarks and wholly embrace Trump's bigotry and values without question, it's not surprising that the MAGA hats have almost become synonymous with racism and fascism.

Seeing as how the president readily makes controversial comments about women, people of colour, immigrants and people with disabilities, let alone his frequent calls for violence against the media in general, it's tough to feel sorry for conservatives who are either willfully ignorant of these other issues or just turn a blind eye when it suits them.
