Democrats and their mainstream media cohorts are attempting to kill the first MAGA rally since the COVID lockdown in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Nancy Pelosi is claiming “COVID spikes” is making it too dangerous for Trump supporters to gather on June 20 while at the same time she encourages Black Lives Matter protests. Well, Rush Limbaugh destroyed the Democrats and their lies, making Pelosi and her buddies really angry. You’ll love this.
Trump is careful to pick his battles. Sticking to the June 19 date for his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma was an unnecessary battle, so the rally is currently set for June 20, a date that even leftists can’t challenge.
Democrats and their allies claimed June 19 was an inappropriate day for a MAGA rally by contending that the date chosen was racist because it coincided with “Juneteenth,” a remembrance of the emancipation announcement in Texas in 1865.
When Trump refused to back down and cancel it altogether, the Democrats then argued that the location was racist because, in 1921, local Democrats engaged in a horrific racist attack against Tulsa’s black community.
Trump, who knows when to fight and when to walk away, didn’t take the bait on this one. Instead, he simply announced that “out of respect” for Juneteenth, he was rescheduling the rally for June 20, an unexceptional date.
The media instantly switched over to complaining that the rally is going to create a new Wuhan Virus outbreak. The tone of the coverage, complete with “experts,” is “we’re all gonna die!”
The leftwing Daily Beast immediately publicized: “Tulsa Health Director: ‘If You Want to Stay Safe, Don’t Go’ to Trump Rally.”

Rush Limbaugh angers the Democrats by destroying their COVID scare narrative.
“Be it Black Lives Matter, be it the new CHOP demilitarized zone — well, not demilitarized zone, whatever they’re calling this thing in Seattle — or an Occupy Wall Street rally,” Limbaugh said. “If that’s happening, you go there! You go! You’re gonna be safe as you can possibly be. But let Trump think about a rally in Tulsa, and apparently the virus is gonna be well aware, and it’s gonna be lying in wait.”
“This was a swarm of people at Brooklyn Museum Plaza, and look at the headline: ‘Rally for Black Trans Lives Draws Packed Crowd to Brooklyn Museum Plaza — As Americans come together at Black Lives Matter protests around the country, activists have also put a lens on the lives of Black trans people,'” Rush claimed.
“They’re totally in favor of it! Look at that swarm of people!” he added.
“Not a shred of concern about the virus. Not a shred of concern about COVID-19 or anything,” Limbaugh explained. “The next story… There’s a picture of Trump at one of his rallies, he’s standing at the podium and there’s a crowd behind him, and here’s the caption of the picture: ‘President Trump plans to rally his supporters for the first time since most of the country was shuttered by the coronavirus.'”
NBC did not once mention the coronavirus or risks associated with large gatherings throughout the entire article on the BLM protests.
Yet, less than two hours later, NBC News tweeted an article focused on the risks associated with President Trump’s upcoming rallies.
Rush was referring to these NBC tweets as posted by conservative reporter Mark Hemingway:

“But health experts are questioning that decision,'” Rush said.
“So you see, it’s okay for BLM, Black Trans Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, whatever. It’s okay for liberal Democrats to congregate and sardine themselves everywhere,” Limbaugh declared. “That’s so cool. That’s fine. Let Trump do a rally and, somehow, he’s going to be responsible for murder! He’s gonna be responsible for death, responsible for people getting sick.”
President Trump also pointed out the hypocrisy.
“Almost One Million people request tickets for the Saturday Night Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma!” Trump tweeted which caused the leftwing media to begin their faux COVID-scare campaign.
“The Far Left Fake News Media, which had no Covid problem with the Rioters & Looters destroying Democrat-run cities, is trying to Covid Shame us on our big Rallies. Won’t work!” Trump added.

NBC is hardly alone in its purported agenda. Former Trump challenger Hillary Clinton, citing the disclaimer on the registration page for Trump’s upcoming rally in Tulsa, suggested that he should not be holding rallies at all.
Bernie Sanders, Maxine Waters, and Chuck Schumer all joined in on criticizing the upcoming MAGA rally. Well, most Americans noticed the minute the George Floyd outrage began in the streets was the same minute the Democrats and their media cohorts stopped screaming about the COVID crisis.
They may have fooled us all into a lockdown that data now is saying did not have to happen, but they will not fool us into canceling Trump rallies. We know that they know those MAGA rallies are Trump’s weapon to defeat Joe Biden in November.
