You have to admit that is America experiencing one of the weirdest times in our history right now. The country’s experienced a pandemic and been in the grips of civil unrest—so in the midst of all that, Trump deciding to hold a campaign rally is pretty ballsy.
The Left may have a mass conniption fit when he rolls into Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 19th. It goes against so many of their views and beliefs that they may never recover from the shock. That’s why, for a whole host of reasons, they’ve been demanding that Trump cancel the rally entirely.
Freedom Wire’s own Grace Saldana talked about the significance of “Juneteenth” and why Trump hosting a rally on that day is causing so much controversy. You can read her article HERE.
But there’s another reason why the Left is demanding Trump move the rally, and has to do with the racially-motivated Tulsa Massacre of 1921.
If you’ve never heard of the Tulsa race massacre, it’s not surprising. It was a low point in American history and we tend to downplay the things we’re ashamed of…
And the events that occurred on Memorial Day (then known as Decoration Day) weekend in 1921 are something America SHOULD be ashamed of.
We won’t go into detail here, but a brazen attack by white supremacists led to dozens of dead black citizens, and an affluent black neighborhood was burned to the ground.
So, to say Tulsa has a history of race problems would be an understatement.
Couple this with “Juneteenth,” the unofficial celebration of emancipation from slavery, and you’ve got the makings of a powder keg with a very short fuse.
This is the reason that the Left is telling Trump to change the date. They say that there is too much history surrounding the date and location, and it would be disrespectful to black Americans if he went through with it.
Obviously, we recognize the hypocrisy of people who are fine disrespecting the memories of people who died fighting for our country by kneeling during the National Anthem—but that’s not the biggest problem with their demand.
The Left’s False Assumptions Are THEIR Problem
No, the biggest problem with the Left’s demand is that they’re once again claiming that that Trump is a racist and is holding some kind of white supremacy rally.
This is the problem with Leftists…
They get outraged about things they don’t understand.
If that’s what they think a Trump rally is about, they’ve clearly never been to one. The crowds at these events are made up of some of the most diverse and understanding people you’ll ever meet.
The fact that the Left believes it’s just a bunch of white people holding torches shows why Trump labeled the mainstream media as the “enemy of the people.” They’re not telling the truth, and the American people are suffering as a result.
What was Trump’s response to these demands?
Exactly what you’d expect it to be: a proverbial “middle finger” to the Liberal masses. The president is assuring them that not only will the rally go on as planned, but he’s also bragging about it.
He recently tweeted, “Almost One Million people request tickets for the Saturday Night Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma!”

What makes this such an impressive number is that the population of Tulsa is only 400K. Trump’s rally could pull in DOUBLE that number overnight.
So, as you can see, the Left’s bullying tactics of race-baiting didn’t work—as we expected—but that didn’t stop them from taking another angle.
The Left’s Changing Bullying Tactics
When the race-baiting failed, they tried resorting to accusing him of not caring about American’s health. Believe it or not, we’re still in the middle of a pandemic…
So, the Leftist mainstream media has suddenly returned to caring about the coronavirus—even while covering the mass protests and riots that have been going on over the death of George Floyd, showing nothing but support and approval for the massive crowds.
It seems the Left is fine with protests, just when it’s Michiganders looking to go back to work. Huge demonstrations are acceptable, but other gatherings (especially church gatherings) are bad for the future of America’s health.
That tactic didn’t work either. Trump tweeted his response to THIS bully tactic as well: “The Far Left Fake News Media, which had no COVID problem with the Rioters & Looters destroying Democrat-run cities, is trying to COVID Shame us on our big Rallies. Won’t work!”

It’s like the Left and the mainstream media doesn’t know him at all.
Trump is rebel…
If you go against what he feels is right, he’s going to do it even more, just to spite you.
And while we can admit that’s not his most admirable of traits, it sure makes for an entertaining reaction from the Left.
This is who he is…
This is why we voted him into office, and it’s why we’ll do so again.
