The Grand Prize Winner of the Boston Common Protest Pageant: Donald Trump 2020 Campaign

We’ve talked about how the events on the Boston Com­mon jus­ti­fied some folks on the left and a few days later we named the Hon­or­able Men­tions in the Con­test of being the big win­ner from events on the Boston Common.

Now the time has come to name the biggest sin­gle win­ner from the events of last week­end: Don­ald J. Trump.

To some of you this might seem counter intu­itive. Since Char­lottsville the entire MSM has fully embraced their new “Don­ald Trump/​Nazi/​KKK” meme to the point where you have to make real effort to find the word “Rus­sia” in any kind of cov­er­age anymore.

Fur­ther­more in Boston for a week we’ve heard about a Nazi/​Klan rally about to hap­pen in Boston and once the event took place the media fully embraced the tale of tens of thou­sands of ordi­nary cit­i­zens assem­bling with­out vio­lence united to counter the Nazis and their hero Don­ald J Trump.

Unfor­tu­nately for the MSM there were two prob­lems with their uncrit­i­cal assess­ment of the events of Boston. First of all the con­spic­u­ous lack of Nazis to protest.

IF ONE LINE cap­tured the essence of Saturday’s Boston Com­mon rally and counter-​protest, it was a quote halfway through Mark Arsenault’s Page 1 story in the Boston Globe:

‘Excuse me,’ one man in the counter-​protest inno­cently asked a Globe reporter. ‘Where are the white supremacists?’”

That was the day in a nut­shell. Par­tic­i­pants in the “Boston Free Speech Rally” had been demo­nized as a troupe of neo-​Nazis pre­pared to reprise the hor­ror that had erupted in Char­lottesville. They turned out to be a cou­ple dozen cour­te­ous peo­ple linked by lit­tle more than a com­mit­ment to — sur­prise! — free speech.

And then there were the actions of some of the pro­test­ers par­tic­u­larly the ANTIFA folks which while down­played by the national and local media were high­lighted by Boston Police Tweets like this

and this:

and cov­ered like my own and oth­ers show­ing ANTIFA thugs being, well Antifa thugs

And a few days later in Ari­zona, they were going after police again:

A group of anti-​Trump demon­stra­tors used gas can­is­ters, rocks and bot­tles to assault police Tues­day night and cre­ate havoc at what offi­cials said was mostly a peace­ful protest in Phoenix.

Video cap­tured by a local reporter also shows a smok­ing object being thrown at police while hun­dreds of offi­cers attempted to keep order at a rally after Pres­i­dent Trump’s speech at the Phoenix Con­ven­tion Cen­ter had ended.

Tar­get­ing police might be pop­u­lar with the Bernie Sanders wing of the Demo­c­rat party, but swing vot­ers who don’t like their car win­dows smashed or their small busi­ness van­dal­ized might not be all that anx­ious to vote for a party whose foot sol­diers are masked and whose vio­lence the media is defend­ing them and call­ing em peace activists.

And even if you accept that the vio­lence was from a com­par­a­tively small part of the crowd in Boston, the chants call­ing the USA racist and fas­cists were not.

Yeah that will get you those votes you need to flip back swing states like Michi­gan, Penn­syl­va­nia, Wis­con­sin or Iowa.

And while you aren’t see­ing the MSM play any of those chants trust me, videos like that one are being shared all over face­book and the fact that they can be seen on face­book and not on ABC/​NBC/​CBS/​MSNBC or CNN will sim­ply con­firm the President’s charge that the MSM have been con­vey­ors of fake news all along.

The events of Boston and Phoenix might make folks in blue states and a media obsessed with stat­ues and mil­lion­aire foot­balls play­ers with­out seven fig­ure pay­checks feel good about themselves

But the real­ity is those events are walk­ing talk­ing Trump 2020 ads that are going to coin votes for him in every swing state that the left has to win back if they are going to beat him next time around.

Now of course it’s pos­si­ble that Don­ald Trump might decide that as much fun as it is to bait the left and the Estab­lish­ment GOP he’d much rather go back to his old life.

But if he decides to run for re-​election, in my opin­ion, the events of Boston and Phoenix have already done the job.

Use­ful idiots indeed.

We’ve talked about how the events on the Boston Common justified some folks on the left and a few days later we named the Honorable Mentions in the Contest of being the big winner from events on the Boston Common.

Now the time has come to name the biggest single winner from the events of last weekend: Donald J. Trump.

To some of you this might seem counter intuitive. Since Charlottsville the entire MSM has fully embraced their new “Donald Trump/Nazi/KKK” meme to the point where you have to make real effort to find the word “Russia” in any kind of coverage anymore.

Furthermore in Boston for a week we’ve heard about a Nazi/Klan rally about to happen in Boston and once the event took place the media fully embraced the tale of tens of thousands of ordinary citizens assembling without violence united to counter the Nazis and their hero Donald J Trump.

Unfortunately for the MSM there were two problems with their uncritical assessment of the events of Boston. First of all the conspicuous lack of Nazis to protest.

IF ONE LINE captured the essence of Saturday’s Boston Common rally and counter-protest, it was a quote halfway through Mark Arsenault’s Page 1 story in the Boston Globe:

“‘Excuse me,’ one man in the counter-protest innocently asked a Globe reporter. ‘Where are the white supremacists?'”

That was the day in a nutshell. Participants in the “Boston Free Speech Rally” had been demonized as a troupe of neo-Nazis prepared to reprise the horror that had erupted in Charlottesville. They turned out to be a couple dozen courteous people linked by little more than a commitment to — surprise! — free speech.

And then there were the actions of some of the protesters particularly the ANTIFA folks which while downplayed by the national and local media were highlighted by Boston Police Tweets like this

and this:

and covered like my own and others showing ANTIFA thugs being, well Antifa thugs

And a few days later in Arizona, they were going after police again:

A group of anti-Trump demonstrators used gas canisters, rocks and bottles to assault police Tuesday night and create havoc at what officials said was mostly a peaceful protest in Phoenix.

Video captured by a local reporter also shows a smoking object being thrown at police while hundreds of officers attempted to keep order at a rally after President Trump’s speech at the Phoenix Convention Center had ended.

Targeting police might be popular with the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democrat party, but swing voters who don’t like their car windows smashed or their small business vandalized might not be all that anxious to vote for a party whose foot soldiers are masked and whose violence the media is defending them and calling em peace activists.

And even if you accept that the violence was from a comparatively small part of the crowd in Boston, the chants calling the USA racist and fascists were not.

Yeah that will get you those votes you need to flip back swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Iowa.

And while you aren’t seeing the MSM play any of those chants trust me, videos like that one are being shared all over facebook and the fact that they can be seen on facebook and not on ABC/NBC/CBS/MSNBC or CNN will simply confirm the President’s charge that the MSM have been conveyors of fake news all along.

The events of Boston and Phoenix might make folks in blue states and a media obsessed with statues and millionaire footballs players without seven figure paychecks feel good about themselves

But the reality is those events are walking talking Trump 2020 ads that are going to coin votes for him in every swing state that the left has to win back if they are going to beat him next time around.

Now of course it’s possible that Donald Trump might decide that as much fun as it is to bait the left and the Establishment GOP he’d much rather go back to his old life.

But if he decides to run for re-election, in my opinion, the events of Boston and Phoenix have already done the job.

Useful idiots indeed.
