The Slime Stream Media has been crowing about empty seats at Trump’s Tulsa rally. They’d like us to believe they were due to Trump’s “Struggling Campaign” (TIME). Yeah, no.
I’ve compiled the reports I’ve seen about why this happened at a rally that had had thousands more ticket requests than available seats and for which enthusiastic rally-goers were lining up as much as two days in advance.
Pam Geller Reports (link below) posted a number of videos tweeted by people who were outside the rally, showing Black Lives Matter protesters screaming at members of the National Guard, calling out for violence against, and throwing some kind of liquid on Trump supporters.
CLICK [11:55] to hear Terrence Williams (who attended the rally) compare the reality with the media coverage.
He suggests the media playing up the possibility of violence could have kept some people from using their tickets.
Another reason for empty seats was the result of an organized effort by Trump haters to reserve tickets they had no intention of using.
The “million wasted tickets” was a tad overblown, seeing as the arena has just over 19,000 seats total.
A third reason appears to have been an underhanded effort by local security to keep people with tickets from getting inside and prevent those outside from getting into the Jumbotron area.
Posted to Facebook – “Jeannie and I had reserved tickets to attend the rally. Although somewhat chaotic with people driving by yelling obscenities at us as we walked, a mean mug or two and a fight or two breaking out around us, everything wasn’t actually that bad. However, finding a gate entrance was quite the task…nothing was clarified – and NO..no protesters were blocking entrances.
“We finally found how to get in. At the exact moment we approached the first barrier (police tape) there were police lined up at the tape and at the opening we were greeted by the Secret service or contract military (not sure who they were) at 6:05 p.m. who told us, along with a multitude of others at our gate (there was three seperate entrance gates at various locations) that we could not enter. We asked why? They said that the BOK had reached its capacity and the temperature checkers had left prematurely and acted pretty smug about it which I thought was strange.
“Some who waited with us said they had friends on the inside who text and told them that there were still many empty seats available. So, we waited at the police tape entrance dumb founded for 20 minutes until the police line started backing up and went through a 10 foot fence and chained and locked the gate. No other explanation.
“Further, no one was even allowed into the jumbotron area to watch it outside. We walked with a man on our way back to our car, who was on the inside but decided to leave, who also said that there were many more seats available. This is the absolute first hand truth.
“So, we drove home to watch what was left of the rally on tv to see many empty seats in the background and hear nothing but lies from reporters who reported that the Trump rally didn’t have the turnout that they expected inside and no one even turned out to rally outside to watch the jumbotron (which is exactly what a supporter waiting with us said the media would say).
“Nothing but lies! We were lied to! They locked a multitude of us out! They even reported that Trump was surprised at the low turnout. If I can get a message to the President, I will tell him how they duped him at this rally and how he is getting played by those who surround him. TRY TO GET THIS TO HIM!”
I have no problem believing this stuff happened.
The hypocritical Democrats, who had cheered on the protests/riots, tried and failed to halt the rally altogether by filing a lawsuit claiming it would be a COVID-19 “super spreader.” The judge tossed it out.
Then the mayor of Tulsa tried and failed to impose a 10 pm to 6 am curfew around the arena for “everyone’s safety.”
Why wouldn’t they then try to hurt Trump’s turn-out by barring entrance? It makes perfect sense.
It’s just the kind of slimey, disgusting, underhanded, anti-American thing we have come to expect from Democrats.
They may think they’ve won a victory in Tulsa. But they’re wrong.
I am 100% sure they have only made us more determined than ever to put Trump back in office for 4 more years AND to give him strong conservative majorities in the House and Senate so he can get stuff done this time.
