Donald Trump, conservatives, Republicans, and, not least, Americans in general, should be very grateful for the lack of attendees at Trump's campaign rally in Tulsa, and that for the following reason: it shows exactly what the true nature of the Left is.
The partial lack of spectators in Oklahoma was artificial. Entirely artificial.
How on Earth can a successor of Walter Duranty at the so-called "newspaper of record" write that Trump's Tulsa Rally Fizzles as Seats Go Empty when that outcome was manufactured?
It was a "narrative" that was phony and it was a narrative that led to another round of fake news.
Indeed, it was a crisis of sorts (a knee-slappin' crisis in this case, according to the Left) created by the party of government. (Thanks for the instalink, Stephen Green.)
But there is more — as Dom Calicchio and Tyler Olson write on Fox News:
U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to take pleasure Saturday night in reports that the turnout for President Trump’s Tulsa, Okla., rally was lower than expected.Scammed; scammed by teenagers: How appropriate. You start gaining wisdom in this world when you realize that the entire structure of the Left is a world of drama queens and scammers operating on a teen-age mindset.
In a Twitter post, Ocasio-Cortez claimed the Trump campaign had been scammed by teenage anti-Trump activists who allegedly reserved scores of tickets for the Tulsa event online – then failed to show up, thus preventing others from being able to attend.“Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok,” the New York Democrat wrote in response to a Twitter message by Trump 2020 Campaign chief Brad Parscale, who argued that “Radical protestors” in Tulsa had prevented some of the president’s supporters from entering the BOK Center, where the rally was held.
Leftists are obsessed with race. Leftists are obsessed with sex. Leftists are obsessed with melodrama. Leftists are obsessed with private lives; the private lives of every citizen.
In case you are wondering, rules and laws and rights and politics all have to do, or ought to have to do, with the public sphere, and with the public sphere alone. A home is a man's (and a woman's) castle, and what goes on inside (notably in the bedroom) and in private life in general should have no bearing on rules and regulations.
But in that case, of course — if you cannot bring in private lives, sexuality, racism, and other like personal sins — the Left has nothing left to run upon.
The left's teenage-mentality-driven Drama Queens are also obsessed with tearing down everything before them. (By the way, isn't it time time that the 26th Amendment be repealed?)
When members of the White House Press Corps shoot questions at the president or at his press secretary, you get the impression that the whole night prior, the editors of mainstream media outlets such as the Washington Post and the New York Times had been chortling like Beavis and Butt-Head until the sun rises.
Let us imagine this conversation as an example: Trump sucks! What can we do about it? Listen to this plan: if we take the president's Charlottesville speech, and leave in the middle part of “You also had some very fine people on both sides” while leaving out the final part — heh-heh-heh — not to mention the sentence where he specifically says “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists [who] should be condemned totally” — uh-huh-huh-huh — we can make it appear that he is a racist calling neo-Nazis (and, more generally, white supremacists) “very fine people” — heh-heh-heh. Oooh, man, coo-ool! That's awesome!
“Shout out to Zoomers. Y’all make me so proud,” Ocasio-Cortez added.The fight for… justice?!
… “KPop allies, we see and appreciate your contributions in the fight for justice too,” the congresswoman wrote.
The entire thing was artificial — AstroTurf as you leftists love to call events involving non-leftists, such as the Tea Parties.
It turns out that the party always singing the praises of solemnity, responsibility, and truth — i.e., the necessity for government intervention — while castigating the despicable Republicans, the odious Donald Trump, and his allegedly immature tweets are nothing less than elated with teen-age pranks.
What does this say about the Left's angry or merry denunciations of AstroTurf, Republicans' alleged lack of manners and intelligence, conservatives' purported eliminationist rhetoric, and the opponents they call names such as POS and Adolf Hitler, not to mention… voter suppression?
Doesn't psychology tell us that imagining what is in others lies in fact in yourself?
It wasn't Trump, or another Republican, charging that his or her adversaries belong in the trash heap of history, but a top Obama aide. (Every time I hear such a quote — and in view that every person not a leftist is a despicable deplorable or some other such inhuman monster, there is a myriad of such quotes — I say that conservatives should thank them publicly for showing exactly to what extent our founding fathers were prescient in deeming the Second Amendment necessary.) Thanks to Instapundit's Glenn Reynolds, who writes, tongue in cheek,
DEMOCRATS: TRUMP IS DIVIDING AMERICA.
ALSO DEMOCRATS: Susan Rice Says Trump Supporters Belong In ‘Trash Heap Of History.’
What does it say about leftists, when they claim that, say, there are no blacks, or very few, in attendance at a campaign involving any Republican. Isn't it from the same artificial accounts? After years and decades of MSM outlets and teachers hammering home the "fact" that Republicans are supposed to be racist trash hostile to African-Americans (see Charlottesville above) and other like "narratives", why would anyone (white or black) be surprised at a lack of black supporters at their rallies or among their ranks?
And let it be known that the most stunning false narrative of all, the 1619 Project, got started only last year, in order to further make Americans become revolted at the United States, at its people, and at its history
Incidentally, the most important policy for the Republicans today — certainly, in Trump's next term — is getting rid of all the far leftists in public education (sic), if necessary by simply getting rid of Jimmy Carter's education (sic) department once and for all, and returning the subject matter to the states and to various sub-localities, where, as has been known since the days of Tocqueville, citizens and parents can have some input into the subjects that their children are being taught.
To return to the Tulsa event, let's try the put-the-shoe-on-the-other-foot approach:
What if a Republican-led initiative had resulted in a significant downturn at a rally for Barack Obama, for one of the Clintons, for Joe Biden, or — for that matter — for AOC? The Democrats would be — rightly — outraged (and FYI, a good number of conservatives would join in the condemnation of that "prank", which would be called something far worse, something closer to a crime, by the powers-that-be).
In that case, indeed, the Democrats would call the "prank" what it truly was: a "dirty tricks" campaign to sabotage an opponent's rally.
But there are more ominous questions: imagine if a Republican-led initiative had led to a full turnabout of a strictly Democratic-voting county, just like, in real life, the Democrats managed to do in California's Orange country. The Democrats would go berserk.
Here is the million-dollar question: What does this glee about their ability to influence the turnout of a Republican rally say about Democrats' approach and attitude to elections (local as well as national)?
When you are constantly running against Adolf Hitler — meaning a Democrat running for office is never anything less than a figure of heroic proportions —
From ballot harvesting and mail-in ballots to motor voter and same-day voter registration through the lack of voter IDs — all items that are present (certainly not to the extent as in the U.S.) in no other country — all are designed to ensure a one-party banana republic.
In that perspective, Glenn Reynolds mentions a Facebook user opining that Ocasio-Cortez deserves our gratitude:
“Fraudulent ticket reservations? I think we just learned exactly what will happen with mail in voting. We should thank AOC for demonstrating this.”Have you heard the meme that America is divided? Uncountable times, doubtlessly. Well, it's true; but what we are not told is that America is divided between Americans who believe in facts and teenage-mentality-driven Drama Queens who live by the existence of their melodramatic fairy tales.

Leftists are drama queens. Leftists constantly erupting in hysterics — male (girly men?) or female — rule the roost.
Racism! Patriarchy! Sexism! Rape on campus! Global warming! Christianity's bigotry! The reactionary average American! Republicans' hate speech and hate thought! US history, a litany of racism and oppression! All the founding fathers, hypocritical sonzabitches! All our ancestors, imperialist mongrels! Oppression of women, and gays, and transgenders!
(The only person, the only people, who come out positive in this (self-serving) world view are — surprise, surprise — the drama queens themselves! Also known as the wise men, and the wise women, arriving as knights in shining armor on their white steeds to fight for the victims and the martyrs of the world.)
Whenever there is drama — whenever there is a crisis (or the semblance of a crisis) — the left's drama queens win.• The Leftist Worldview in a Nutshell: A world of Deserving Dreamers Vs. Despicable Deplorables
There must be constant drama — crises, if you prefer — or the movement loses momentum and/or comes to a standstill and/or dies out.
