So I watched the RNC. Not entirely but I watched a chunk and read about the rest. Here’s what I have to say.
Trump has completely ditched the MAGA people and gone for African Americans. This isn’t new. He’s been operating under the illusion that he can get 20% of the black vote for a while. The idea seems to be that the MAGA voters have no place to go anyway while black voters can be persuaded to switch over.
I welcome a debate. But a debate requires a clarity of terms. If you want to make an argument that MAGA people were prominent at the RNC, please name 5-10 of the most important MAGA personalities in the country. Which of them spoke at the RNC? And how many speakers were the people absolutely detested by the MAGA crowd? According to my observation, the answers are zero and 70% respectively. And if you watched the beautifully filmed and organized videos and events between the speeches, you’d know that they seem designed to get the MAGA crowd’s backs up.
We can also play at guessing what a MAGA RNC would look like. Who’d speak? Not Nikki Haley and Jarvanka, that’s for sure.
And before the opposing side starts feeling better for yourself, here’s what your guys were doing while the RNC was going on. And for months before:
Elderly man assaulted just outside the White House. He stoically makes his way through the crowd and is attacked, knocked to the ground and knocked out right after passing the massive BLM words plastered to the street. This is the true nature of BLM right now. https://t.co/F89kw0K8sz
Even the deeply odious Nikki Haley is better than your side.
