So the Juneteenth gambit didn’t get him to cancel the rally (he changed the date \), and now we’re on to noting that racial incidents occured vaguely “near” the venue ninety-nine fucking years ago so really, shouldn’t Trump cancel?
There was a racial riot that turned into a massacre in Tulsa in 1921. Did you know that? Woke White Progressives did. Not because they read or know history, but because they relentlessly watch Quality Premium Cable TV Shows.
Last year they learned about the 1921 Tulsa riots from The Watchmen (wich #WokeWhiteProgressives, and literally no one else, watched), and all babbled about it on Twitter.
Well, now it’s time to put that HBO Extension Course Education to good use.
“Just imagine, in your mind, all these homes,” Shaw said one morning this week, describing the black-built, black-owned houses and churches that once covered dozens of blocks where he’s walking, the site of Tulsa’s 1921 race massacre. “Just picture that.”
“Hotels, movie theater, roller rink,” said Shaw, a retired man who spends his mornings sitting in the shade of an engraved stone memorial to the Home Style Café, A.S. Newkirk photography studio, and literally hundreds of other African American-owned bakeries, barber shops, attorney offices and businesses razed in the massacre.
Burned bricks and a fragment of a church basement are about all that survive today of the more than 30-block historically black district. On May 31 and June 1 in 1921, white residents and civil society leaders looted and burned Tulsa’s black Greenwood district to the ground, and used planes to drop projectiles on it.
The BOK Center, where Trump will be speaking, is nearly a mile from the Greenwood District.
So really not that close given that this is located in the same city, huh? You wouldn’t say that Colored Orphan Asylum (which was burned to the ground at the start of Civil War Draft Riots* of 1863) is “near” Carnegie Hall in any meaningful sense, just to shame someone from appearing there.
Yes, they’re both in Manhattan. But not really “near.”
Unless you’re the media and you’re doing your best to gin up another Race Riot.
Which is already a real possibility, thanks to out of state antifa and BLM protesters traveling to Tulsa to, um, “protest.”
The mayor has imposed a curfew due to threats of violence:
The Republican mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma, has declared a civil emergency and set a curfew for the area around the site where President Donald Trump plans to hold a campaign rally this weekend.
In his executive order establishing a curfew around the BOK Center from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Thursday through Sunday, Mayor G.T. Bynum cited the unrest that followed some of the recent protests around the country over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month.
“I have received information from the Tulsa Police Department and other law enforcement agencies that shows that individuals from organized groups who have been involved in destructive and violent behavior in other States are planning to travel to the City of Tulsa for purposes of causing unrest in and around the rally,” Bynum said in his order, which was posted on the police department’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
So the media is setting up the narrative: When their ground troop allies, antifa and BLM and even maybe BAMN, start attacking Trump supporters lawfully assembling — as they did in Chicago — it will actually be Whitey’s fault, Because Ninety Nine Years Ago.
The media is no longer pretending to believe in neutral rules of peaceful coexistence, such as “people should be free to peaceably assemble without being attacked.” No, they are openly embracing the rule that the right cannot do anything without the express permission of the left’s ground troops, and if the right fails to secure that permission, it is morally and legally justifiable to start attacking them with bike-locks and molotov cocktails.
Yes I knew of Black Wall Street, attacked by democrats and burnt to the ground. Had nothing to do with the Party that freed the slaves, of which is having a rally just blocks away from the Democrat preformed massacre.
On May 30, 1921, Dick Rowland, a young African American shoe shiner, was accused of assaulting a white elevator operator named Sarah Page in the elevator of a building in downtown Tulsa. The next day, the Tulsa Tribune printed a story saying that Rowland had tried to rape Page, with an accompanying editorial stating that a lynching was planned for that night.
That evening mobs of both African Americans and whites descended on the courthouse where Rowland was being held. When a confrontation between an armed African American man, there to protect Rowland, and a white protestor resulted in the death of the latter, the white mob was incensed, and the Tulsa massacre was thus ignited.
1997 ordered to pay 37 million to the survivors Tulsa never paid up.
June 14, 1946 is when our President was born so could have not played a hand in this event.
There is a sciene in the movie PLACES IN THE HEART showing a blind armed Blackman facing some Democrats in their Bedsheets
I particularly enjoyed the outrage of Trump scheduling the rally on June 19th…. “Juneteenth”. Anyone outside of Texas aware of Juneteenth? Well, they are now… NOW it’s a national celebration. Because… pandering.
June 19, 1865 was the day freed slaves in Texas found out about the Emancipation Proclamation and the abolition of slavery. It doesn’t matter that Lincoln freed the slaves in states in rebellion against the US… something that hardly carried any weight throughout the Confederacy. But this was in TEXAS.
And Oklahoma wasn’t even a state and there WERE no slaves there.
But, when you run out of things to be “morally outraged” about, just make shit up.
