pigeons maga hats

Pigeons wearing MAGA hats. 

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- An anonymous group calling itself "P.U.T.I.N." said they released pigeons wearing MAGA hats into downtown Las Vegas. 

According to an email from the group's apparent leader "Coo Hand Luke," PUTIN -- which stands for Pigeons United To Interfere Now -- released the birds purposely on the eve of the Democratic debate set for Las Vegas on Wednesday.

The group included video of the pigeons' release in their media alert.

One of the pigeons was attached with a small orange hairpiece. The rest wear "MAGA" (Make America Great Again) hats, synonymous with supporters of President Donald Trump.

The group said they were inspired by "the 1970’s Cold War Operation, 'Tacana,' in which the CIA explored the use of pigeons equipped with tiny cameras to spy on Soviet sites of interest."

The group called the pigeon release an "aerial protest."

In December, an unknown person(s) attached small cowboy hats to several pigeons found in the Las Vegas Valley. Lofty Hopes pigeon rescue recovered two of them and removed their hats. One of the pigeons later died. 

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police nor a local pigeon rescue were available for comment on Tuesday night.

This sure woke up the commie liberal scum in town ! Dumbest pigeon lovers around! Maybe next they should put rainbow 🌈 necklace on them ? Haha

pdcowles

What is their cause?! What is the point of their cruel protest?!!!

The Fascist animal abusing group should be arrested for animal abuse. If they really think all Trump supporters find animal abuse cute or funny THEY ARE WRONG. This shows just how immature this whole Cult 45 is.

Vivia

sorry, but like every other incident like this, it's the Democrats doing it. The Democrats support animal cruelty. It's Trump that supported the animal cruelty law and got it passed.

Nevermore

I rather see liberals with clued on MAGA hats than birds. Leave the birds alone.

pdcowles

I'm with you on that!!!

Anyone who thinks this was actually done by Trump supporters claiming a PUTIN acronym is insane.

Vivia

The left is that insane.

I know Clark County doesn't care about pigeons, because they passed an ordinance making it legal to trap, torture and kill them, but this is mass cruelty. Did anyone actually read this article about the poor pigeons who had the cowboy hats? One died. Why can't there be a law against cruelty to animals in Clark County?

Why?? The LAST thing in the world this county needs is MORE LEGISLATION! As FREEDOM LOVING AMERICANS it is our DUTY to guard against the FRIVOLOUS GROWTH OF GOVT (THIS IS CALLED "FEDERALISM") and this means serious stemming the flow of NEEDLESS LEGISLATION. Indeed, that aside, keep in mind that what you are proposing is that the Govt be a NANNY STATE which should regulate citizens' behaviors/thinking. Have you taken high school civics? Perhaps you could locate the section on FASCISM & AUTHORITARIANISM for that is what you are championing. Half of the states in this USA are being BRIBED BY MICRO-MIKE BLOOMBERG TO DEPRIVE AMERICANS OF THEIR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS THROUGH UNCONSTITUTIONAL LEGISLATION: YET YOU WANT TO DEFEND A DAMNED PIGEON! DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION! LEARN IT! LIVE IT! STOP DEFENDING AND PROMOTING POLICIES TO DESTROY IT!

TerryW

There is nothing that supports the constitution in any of your posts. You are brainwashed if not suffering from the same mental disorder found among Donald's deaf dumb and blind followers. Donald and the Trump Republicans ARE fascists. You really need to get out a dictionary and a few history books.

Vivia

LOL, the left is so delusional! They're such jokes!

Fedupwithmagamorons

Not surprising at all that magas would do this. They hate animals of any kind. So sad, as this is just outright cruelty. The group calls itself PUTIN which is so appropriate as they totally agree with allowing Russia & other countries to affect our elections. So sad for our country. 💔

Peace_Train

Please... There is no way that you could actually believe that Trump supporters glued tiny MAGA hats on pigeons and then claimed the acronym of PUTIN for the credit... I don't care how uneducated you are - nobody - is that stupid.

TerryW

Sorry but Trump's codependents are. that. stupid.

How do you get dressed in the morning? I wear my MAGA hat everyday so I'm going to have take what your lackluster words, personally. The problem with people like YOU is that you are unaware of the fact that there is no more Journalism today, there is only a sophisticated PROPOGANDA machine put in place by Project Mockingbird decades ago and the end result is POTUS so aptly named "FAKE NEWS"... But, I guess you haven't figured that out yet. Any fool with a brain (even riddled with years of vaccines!) Can see that the above story is theater meant to stoke the ire of the BRAINWASHED, TROGLODYTE masses because there's always THAT REALLY SMART PERSON who WILL believe IT! I am not originally from Vegas but I have discovered that here they are referred to as "flying rats"... Now I wonder who would be thrilled at the sight of a bunch of flying rats supporting Trump... Obviously, the ibtard-lays think they are smart & that no one will see the derogatory implication of what they see Trump Supporters as... If you are going to take the time to spread misinformation and PROPOGANDA you should probably do more research, or have a Conservative do your homework for you.... You know! Like you probably did in H. S. ! 😎

TerryW

Unfortunately you're just another brainwashed stepford wife.

pdcowles

It's radical haters like you that are probably doing this. Where is your moral compass?!

Vivia

If it's Putin, then it's being done by the Democrats and the left. The Dems are so corrupt.

Medium Mack

Good job ! Better than the cowboy hat 🤠!

Johnnyboy5

This is harmful to the birds.

Actually the pigeons were smart enough to dump all over the traitorpub fascist Party trash. Pigeons don't like to be abused by idiots.
