The silent majority that carried Donald Trump to victory in 2016 is re-emerging in stunning fashion. Ticket registrations to attend the president’s first rally have risen to over 300,000 since March 2, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said, according to The Hill.
The event will be held on June 20 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. While the rally was originally planned for June 19, it was moved back a day out of respect for “Juneteenth,” a commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States, according to The New York Times.
Large rallies return
President Trump’s rally not only serves a political purpose, but it also serves as confirmation that life is returning to normal after months of coronavirus lockdowns.
Considering the potential threat from COVID-19 that remains, the rally’s organizers are requiring all prospective attendees to sign a waiver agreeing not to hold the Trump campaign or the convention center liable in case of infection, The New York Times reports.
Recent protests over the death of George Floyd have actually helped pave the way for the resumption of large campaign rallies.
For weeks, thousands of demonstrators have gathered in large crowds, and thus far, there have not been reports of massive spikes in infection stemming from those events.
Furthermore, Democrat politicians played their hands by not criticizing the mass social justice gatherings, and for them to turn around and slam Trump supporters for attending a rally would reek of blatant hypocrisy.
Silent majority backs president
Despite the very loud and active progressives who control the mainstream media, the state of American politics likely hasn’t changed significantly since 2016.
The biggest change that has occurred may actually be in the president’s favor, as the recent riots and general lawlessness effectively endorsed by Democrats may move more moderate Americans closer to voting for Trump in November.
Thousands have had their lives disrupted first by the coronavirus pandemic and then by a nationwide wave of riots and violence, and those who value law and order will surely stand with the president on Election Day.
The enthusiasm for this upcoming rally is an incredibly positive sign, particularly in light of Joe Biden’s inability to generate a great deal of excitement among the Democratic electorate.
This rally could very well mark the beginning of a massive red wave, but only time will tell.
