Over and over and over again - "I can't believe it! Small businesses are getting crushed today because of this parade! They're holding up traffic". Mind you, they were obeying the laws, driving through 3 towns, probably 2,000+ VEHICLES, don't even get me started on the people standing on the side of the road.
I just found the irony so perplexing.
When BLM shuts down entire intersections and ATTACKS people that drive through, you call the driver a terrorist and say that they should've just gone another way. When Trump voters have a parade and harm no one - "These people are such inconsiderate assholes!".
They constantly champion for more and more lock downs, they fall silent when it comes to the hundreds up millions of dollars caused nation wide by BLM riots - Who gave a fuck about the businesses then? But now? These Trump voters are putting us out of business! Oh, those poor people just trying to make a living, you know? The same ones I told to go fuck themselves when I wanted to extend the lockdown or applauded people in Minneapolis when they looted small mom n' pop shops. Yeah, them!
It really is incredible to see. When I mentioned that last point to someone, they said "Yeah. But they didn't destroy my store!". Exactly. If it doesn't effect you - who gives a shit? But now that you had ONE SINGULAR DAY of low volume over a parade supporting your president - they stood outside and flipped off the people in the parade.
It really is incredible.
By the way - The Trump voters parade had little children hanging out the back of their cars laughing and smiling, waving miniature American flags. One guy was playing what I believe was a Union Battle Hymn / March. A couple of folks in classic muscle cars, tons of massive trucks, and I kid you not - a few Ferraris!
The counter protesters? Middle fingers, shirts that read "FUCK TRUMP!", screaming countless obscenities at the cars driving past and not one American flag in sight. Every. Single. Trump. Car... Had an American flag on it.
To conclude my observations - There was a high degree of anger and fury from the opposing side. Why? The answer, to me at least, is incredibly obvious. For months my town has has seen BLM protests on the street corners. Climate change protests. Biden signs are up every where - the Trump ones get torn down. But today? Imagine taking every leftist held protest over the past 4 months here, combining it and then multiplying it by 100. That's what they saw. They didn't believe in the silent majority but when it actually manifested, not just in the real world - BUT IN THEIR TOWN - They shit themselves. Plain and simple.
