Before the 2018 midterm elections, President Trump forewarned of caravans of migrants coming up through Mexico and with only a few days until the 2020 election, Donald Trump devotees are the ones forming caravans, taking to highways and freeways in considerable numbers to demonstrate their support for the President or make some other statement.
In some cases, like when Trump caravans waited on the I-35 in Texas to ambush a Joe Biden campaign bus, things turned a little sinister.
The FBI is investigating that incident, although Donald Trump tweeted that in his view, they should let it go – in other cases, the rallies just generate traffic jams.
Around Denver on Sunday, the gridlock appears to have been an incidental byproduct of the MAGA Drag The Interstate rally, however, in other areas, such as New York and New Jersey, the goal appears to have been to shut down traffic.
The real goal for most caravan participants appears to be a visible display of strength amid dire polling for Donald Trump, but police are readying for disorder and confrontations on Election Day, and already early voting has been tarnished by accusations of voter intimidation and unease around the polls, including numerous reports of caravans and honking automobiles flying Trump flags at times blocking access to voting locations.
Actionable voter intimidation includes people confronting voters in official or military-style uniforms outside polling places or poll watchers following voters or aggressively challenging or intimidating them.
But is this all these people have left to try? Apparently logic didn’t work, and it seems that when you’re that impotent, just get out your oversized truck, but this fits right in with Donald Trump’s obstructionism, anti-law and selfish egocentricity.
It’s a part of the MAGA hive mentality to assume the vexation they engender toward them and they enjoy the adverse energy – it’s a bullying thing, but some people just wouldn’t understand.
The irony is that they despise themselves more than anyone else, nobody who’s happy would act like this, they wouldn’t have the time.
Road blocking can be an effective demonstration tactic because, by snarling traffic, it puts pressure on local officials to address the protestors’ demands and blocking highways is a fearless expression of civil insubordination.
But, then that’s the point – one can either cheer both or condemn both – which camp are you in? But it’s a bad and even destructive strategy no matter who’s doing it.
And then you have the comic tweets for the FBI to let it go, generating disorder and endangering people with traffic jams and flag-waving – is this what the American people have become?
And it would be so amusing if all those people out there intimidating forgot to vote and do they believe that this kind of behaviour would make someone want to vote, if anything, it would make me not want to vote.
This is not America first, it’s a ME first cult behaviour and this could be one of the most idiotic things that the Trumpanzee are doing right now, and I love the fact that they believe this strategy will get Donald Trump re-elected.
You couldn’t make this level of idiocy up! And cult mentality isn’t especially bright.
I mean, how do you feed yourself stupidity? Well, it seems that in the last four years everyone has come out from under a rock and is now demonstrating a ridiculous cult-like mentality, and what, they didn’t realise they were that dumb?
