The event, featuring disgraced former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn and Satan’s mustachioed asshole/barmy pillow tycoon Mike Lindell, was held at the Muhlenberg County Agriculture and Convention Center. And while there were presumably livestock stalls available for much more expansive crowds, attendance disappointed.
Fewer than 300 were at the event when 14 News arrived. 14 News was allowed in the parking lot to shoot some video, but was later asked to leave the fairgrounds.
Any attempts made to speak with local leaders and event organizers have been denied. 14 News did speak with a group of women who fear that such a large event is dangerous during a pandemic.
“People are getting sick and they’re dying,” Powderly resident Rhonda Wood said. “Friends of ours, people we know, and we haven’t been able to stop it. We’ve tried, we’ve pleaded, we’ve sent requests – done whatever we could.”
Such a shame. By the way, here’s how they promoted the event:
The Biggest Patriot Rally Of The Year – A True Reunion Of We, The People, combining the biggest names in the conservative patriot movement including Gen. Flynn, Lin Wood, Candace Owens, Mike Lindell, and many others along w/top notch Christian & Country Music Entertainment! Simply put: This will be THE ‘Event Of The Year’ for American Patriots!
And in case those speakers aren’t kooky enough for ya, I believe I saw prominent anti-vaxxer doctor Simone Gold pictured on the promo site as well. Because conservatives these days love nothing quite so much as easily preventable deaths. Of people, that is. If you’re a grain-sized embryo, they’ll pull out all the stops for you. So if you’re currently a zygote, you may want to hunker down in Mama’s womb until the antediluvian nut jobs are done culling their herd. I’ll be honest, it could be awhile.
Hopefully the MAGA dead-ender crowds will continue to dwindle and we’ll be able to return to those halcyon days when Republicans were merely dangerous assholes and not a loose association of roving, ultra-zealous death squads.
I won’t hold my breath. Unless I’m within 6 feet of a red cap, that is. In that case, holding your breath is just common sense.
It made comedian Sarah Silverman say, “THIS IS FUCKING BRILLIANT,” and prompted author Stephen King to shout “Pulitzer Prize!!!” (on Twitter, that is). What is it?
