So the Trump campaign said there were millions requesting seating for his Tulsa rally last Saturday. The indoor sports center (Covid19 petri dish) could hold 19 thousand. It was going to be a sellout with people being turned away at the door. So much for the hype. In the end there were 6000 Trump supporters. That’s the attendance numbers of fans left supporting their losing team with bags over their heads.
Could this be the sign that Trump’s bigoted campaign has finally reached its end? I for one think so, oh, they are sure to up the opticals by booking smaller event centers in the future, but Trump has lost the support he had four-years ago and all that are left are the radical fringe. I would say this is probably 22 percent of registered voters. An interesting number. In his article “Signs of white supremacy…in active military groups,” Leo Shane III puts the number of active military people who are white supremacist at 1 in 5, or 22 percent. Equally as disturbing is the report by Justice Security who have documented the same 1 in 5 breakdown of White Supremacist in Law Enforcement. In that report, the author reports on how as early as 1989 Skin Head groups advised their members to become “ghost skins” and join the police department.
Four years ago Trump got 63 million votes. According to The Good Men Project, there might be 50 million white supremacist in the US. That number feels right to me, and seems to fit well with Trump’s 63 million supporters he once had. Fortunately, has Tulsa has shown us, at least 16 million of them are waking up. All he has left are the White Supremacist.
Fortunately for us all, Trump is no politician. If he could have pulled a Bill Clinton out of his ass and said something like, “I feel your pain….” after the police killing of George Floyd, his numbers would probably be better. Or, if Trump would have pretended to be George Bush and said something like, “We’re in this together…” regarding the Covid 19 pandemic like Bush did after 9-11, Trump would have kept his 63 million. Instead he showed his true colors. Say what you will about Trump, at least he is incapable of hiding the evil inside of him as most politicians do.
