Despite the best efforts of His Majesty’s Governor Northam, the Duke of Blackface (more commonly known by the Commoners of the the Commonwealth as “Racist Ralph”) and members of the media, the rally in Richmond was peaceful and did not feature bigotry (save by the media and progressive politicians).
Indeed, it was in most ways an idealized representation of what it means to be American. You had diversity of races, sexes, genders, and more.
This white supremacist (according to the media he is one) nuked several media memes and political talking points. Kudos to him.
This guy just cracked me up. He was the epitome of the humor and camaraderie I’ve seen in almost every video from the event.
Love the fact that some (am hearing that more did as well) LE came and joined in.
At least one agitator showed up. He was shown his ass and had it strongly suggested he get his ass, get on it, and get out of there. Again, Kudos to those who shut him down.
All this classic and ideal Americana has thrown Racist Ralph and members of the media into funk. Racist Ralph is still trying to smear those who came out. A typical example of media coverage is here. Here’s a good summary of the media malfeasance, though it is not complete IMO. There is another take on it here that is well worth the read. A good summation is found here. A very accurate piece about the media coverage can be found at America’s new newspaper of record (as opposed to the newspaper with a record).
BTW, loved this takedown of a bigot bloviating about the rally.
This group that was there were far more accurate than the media. And, finally, a huge difference between your typical progressive event and one like this one. Think the media would ever report that? No, I don’t think so either.
