A Rally

A Democrat Attends a Trump Rally

I've attended a Trump Rally. That's what they're like. It's sort of a love fest between fellow conservatives. Read this account. It's telling.
(Link) "I started to question everything. How many stories had I been sold that weren’t true? What if my perception of the other side is wrong? How is it possible that half the country is overtly racist? Is it possible that Trump derangement syndrome is a real thing, and had I been suffering from it for the past three years?"
"Once we got inside, the atmosphere was jubilant. It was more like attending a rock concert than a political rally. People were genuinely enjoying themselves. Some were even dancing to music being played over the loudspeakers. It was so different than any other political event I had ever attended. Even the energy around Barack Obama in 2008 didn’t feel like this."

    1. Anyone can show up at a rally and if they're honest with themselves, they'll see them for what they are. And they will understand why Donald Trump will be re-elected.

    1. It certainly doesn't hurt to be on the correct side of things. No glorying in dead babies, no confiscatory tax programs, trusting in the citizens to do the right thing, etc.

    1. It would be nice if other progs tried the same thing.

  5. I read that entire piece yesterday. what's really refreshing about it is that she realized she had completely shut herself out form anything other than the indoctrination that had so polarized her and is now willing to enter into discourse with others.

    Rare on that side but still nice
