Donald Trump in Hickory NC

I wonder how many violent liberal protesters will be shipped into Hickory? The liberal news media, including Faux News, intonates that Trump is "causing violence." Strange, I see only leftist, progressive, liberal extremists causing violence. Trump hasn't hit anyone. The violent extremists, the same ones supported by village idiots dumbocrapus perplexed, PLOP!, Liberal POV, and nonymouse coward, are deathly afraid of Trump, and therefore resort to the age old tactic of outclassed and afraid liberals - VIOLENCE.

Although I continue to support Cruz as my number one candidate, I WILL vote for Trump and am a step closer to making him my number one candidate. Any more violence by dumbocrapus perplexed, PLOP, liberal pov, and nonymouse coward (notice lower case) and other liberal socialist sheep will cause me to abandon Cruz and go full in for Trump. If he has the left this scared, then he must be pretty good. Anyone they detest, I like. Trump might even win Ohio - the violent liberal protestors are garnering him more attention than RINO Kasich. Love it!

USSRodgerYoung- I agree with you. CRUZ made a big mistake by not denouncing ONLY the protestors. I disagreed with CRUZ when he tried to bring Trump into blame for the protestor's actions, and so did Rubio, Kasich and the Liberal MSM try to blame Trump.

USS Rodger Young said...

Yes, I didn't like that either. Cruz needs a little inflammatory rhetoric himself - what better way to stop Trump than get tough yourself. The RINOs simply don't know what to do these days. Rubio and Kasich don't have a clue.

Sarkazein said...

Things Cruz and Trump said that angered me-

Score- Trump 97 Cruz 2

I will be there tomorrow.

Let you know what happens.

It just isn't FAIR! (and, it might be racist)

All I did was go to a rally of Republican voters (whom I hate) and, when the speaker was talking, I disrupted him so that others who had come to hear him speak wouldn't have to be exposed to those opinions that I disagree with.

And, when I started pushing other people, grabbing there "TRUMP" signs and tearing them up, they kicked me out of the building.

What about my 1st amendment right to disrupt other people?

It just isn't fair.

Wolfe did you make it to the rally? My hairdresser said she talked to a number of people in the Boone Mall who were returning because they could not get in.

Hickory protesters seem to be mostly protesting the wall. I take that personally.

Wolf's Head said...

Frau Wolf and I got our tickets and went. Problem is we had to drive down separately and she doesn't drive in the dark, and wanted to follow me thru the fog, so instead of leaving at 6:00 we left after 7 (thanks daylight savings time).

We got there about 8:30 and the line to get in extended from Monroe auditorium all the way across campus to St. Andrews. Everyone stayed on the walkways, 2 or 3 across, and were orderly, friendly and very enthusiastic about Trump. It was, however VERY foggy.

The line moved slowly as they started to fill the auditorium, but Monroe only holds 1,500. I estimate from my head count and the distance covered there were 4,500 to 5,000 people wanting to see Trump. As we moved forward the line didn't get shorter due to new people showing up. However, due to the heavy fog Trump was delayed a couple of hours. Hearing this most people left as the auditorium was full. I left just after 12 and was filling up on 321 when Trump's Lear jet flew overhead to the Hickory airport.

There were maybe a couple hundred protesters altogether, mostly Lutherans and some of their clergy, including my former pastor who is the new Bishop. They were orderly, and made noise only when the cameras were going.

Everyone was disappointed but understanding about the delay, If Trump had been there at 10 I believe everyone would have stayed to listen to him by loudspeaker outside. The big mistake Trump made was to book such a small venue, he could have filled it 3 times over.

From the talk I heard Trump is pushing ALL the right buttons. The crowd was white middle class. Lots of vendors selling Trump shirts, hats and buttons, nearly all the vendors were black.

These people are the ones who have been hit hardest by repub and democrat policies over the past 15 years, and they are PISSED. The "Wall" will probably be the US's biggest tourist attraction when built.

Whether or not Trump gets the nomination or is elected, the repub establishment is severely wounded. Their lies will not gain them support anymore. Hopefully this will lead to the end of the establishment.

Blogger said...

Thanks Wolfe. Sorry about not getting in. By the way, what was your bishops beef?

Sarkazein said...

I went to a CRUZ rally before he announced. It was part of The Tea Party. You Nouveau Conservatives Volunteers remember The Tea Party don't you?
The warehouse it was held in was packed to the limits and I had to go outside to the parking lot to get out of the crowd. His father did the invocation.

Cyclops said...

Trump supporters are so politically naive. Once he leads the GOP to a defeat like Goldwater did in '64, the Republican establishment will be back in power and will be able to exert even more control than before Trump. When history is ignored, fools are bound to repeat it.

USS Rodger Young said...

Cyclips,

You mean the same naïve supporters who were given liberal candidates John McCain and Mitt Romney? If that's all the establishment can produce, then they deserve what's coming to them. The liberal RINO establishment, and their big government loving thugs, are as much to blame for destroying this once great nation as Democrats.

You don't seem all that concerned about NC Legislature Republicans raising taxes. Never met a liberal/RINO (same thing) sponsored big government bill you didn't like. The sooner we get rid of the establishment Rethuglicans and replace with conservatives, the better.

Wolf's Head said...

I have no idea why he is against Trump. I think Frau Wolf said he had a posting on his facebook about it, but I'm not on facebook.

Off hand I would say it's mostly personality dislike and Trump's (mainstream) views on immigration.

Many people who dislike Trump because of his personality, not his platform.

Wolf's Head said...

I must also admit I can't stand Yankee accents like his, or Hannity's or Mark Levin's.

Sarkazein said...

Wolf'sHead- That's me. I would cringe when Trump was on FOX NEWS all the time and on Fridays they would have Geraldo. I wondered why they were so impressed by eccentric egos. I would have to turn off the TV anytime they were on. They could both be Macy's Day Parade floats with the sizes of their heads. People probably try to lasso them and hang on while they walk down 5th Avenue. It's like they could make cameo appearances in the parade.

Sarkazein said...

The yankee accent. Trump exaggerates his now and then. Trump has a good chance of beating Rubio in Florida because of his yankee accent. 90% of Floridians are New Yorkers.

Cyclops said...

Another malcontent posting here thinks the Republican NCGA raised taxes. Actually, they lowered mine. He must have done something naughty to have his taxes increased. But more likely, just another fool who knows nothing and spouts to prove it.

Johnny Rico said...

Yes, I'm back. It's been awhile - I've been elsewhere determining outcomes, flushing out weak links, and drawing third columns towards vulnerable centers of gravity. You've obviously been in good hands with the incomparable USS Roger Young, but she's moving on to strategic placement before the election. You have me for awhile which is good for some and absolutely terrible for liberals like Cyclopers and Liberal POV.

Johnny Rico said...

We've got a bug problem. Klandathu is crawling folks. These bugs are establishment Rethuglicans. Two of these RINOs voted today to pass what's known as the "DARK Act." The DARK Act was designed to ban the mandatory labeling of food products grown using Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). These two usual culprits, Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, both feel it's important to choose large corporate farms over the common man. They understand many folks may choose not to buy GMO grown food which may cut the bottom line of large corporations. These same RINOs have NOT voted to ease restrictions on ma and pa America trying to open a small business. Try opening a corner gas station or greasy spoon diner and see just how impossible it truly it (especially with the tax increase enacted on YOU by the Republican Legislature). Burr and Tillis love a large centralized government replete with corporate donations - it keeps them in power.

Notice how Burr is strangely silent this election season. He makes no waves, issues no inflammatory rhetoric, and never increases your freedom. About a year before he's up for re-election, he'll spout some conservative bill that he could care less about passing to trick you yet again. Status quo governance at its worst.

Johnny Rico said...

Faux News is stumping for Kasich now. Not a chance he'll win anything other than a retard contest. Tonight, they are even trying to intone Trump will not be able to drag in enough "non-white" votes to win. This may be true. But whose fault is that? The Republicans who ignored unfettered migration (not immigration) by illegal aliens now reap the consequences. What did they think would happen when they filled the nation with millions upon millions of third world socialists who have nothing in common with Americans and don't want the values that made America great (they only want out money until it runs out)? They call the country "polarized." Wrong, we've been supplanted by a true insurgency; the likes of which are not yet fully realized. We are not polarized - we're shifting towards a different socio-economic model. Our culture and national character are morphing into the global tapestry of mediocrity. I don't think it was actually planned that way, but the status quo governance of Republicans is tailor made for this type of radical change. You've just seen the tip of the iceburg folks. Much, much more to come. It's a bug planet. Enjoy.

Latest New York poll after Rubio drops out: Trump polled 64 percent of the support in the poll, 52 points ahead of Sen. Ted Cruz at 12 percent

Johnny Rico said...

Trump may put states like New York, New Jersey in play. If that's the case, Hillary can say goodnight to the Presidential race before going to bed with Uma.

Cyclops said...

Trump may put "states like NY and NJ in play.?" What play would that be? LOL And what about all those thousands of NJ muslims Trump saw celebrating on 9/11? Are they now Trump supporters?

To quote the Doobie Brothers, "What a fool believes….no wise man can reason away."

Cyclops said...

Hey Johnny, How'd that nut case Brannon do in the GOP primary against Senator Burr? Looks like Republican voters know a real conservative from a ethically-challenged charlatan.

Johnny Rico said...

Cyclips,

I figured I could draw you out with enough truth posts. A liberal cannot stand the truth and will rail against it as you've done. Burr is a liberal socialist sheep, not a conservative. Greg Brannon is a conservative. The two couldn't be any different. Unfortunately, Burr has many liberals (you) supporting him. Typical status quo politician and typical lemmings following him. LOL!! Stings don't it.

Cyclops said...

No it doesn't sting, and I take all fools' ridiculous rumination as proof of their ignorance and their name calling as evidence of their immaturity.

Johnny Rico said...

Boy of boy, you're on fire tonight. Like grain that sways in the breeze, which RINO will you support tomorrow?
