According to WashingtonPost.com
President Trump on Saturday approvingly tweeted a video of flag-bearing cars surrounding a Biden campaign bus on the road, a day after the Biden campaign says a group of vehicles with Trump flags attempted to run its bus off the highway in Texas.
“I LOVE TEXAS!” Trump wrote in his evening tweet of a video accompanied by music declaring a “red kingdom.”
The clip resembled video from Friday’s incident, which led the Biden campaign to cancel an event in a traditionally Republican state where Democrats are hoping to make inroads this year. Trump’s seeming encouragement came as officials around the country are worried about the potential for harassment, voter intimidation or violence during the election.
Biden’s campaign said in a statement that cars with Trump signs and flags surrounded its bus on the way from San Antonio to Austin. The bus was on Interstate 35, it said, when cars pulled in front of the bus and slowed, attempting to “stop the bus in the middle of the highway.” Campaign staff called 911, according to the statement, getting help from law enforcement to reach their destination.
Video captures one white truck appearing to hit another car while driving close behind the Biden bus. The Biden campaign declined to comment on reports that a staffer’s car was the one hit.
Out of “an abundance of caution,” the Biden campaign said, it scrapped an event set to be held in the parking lot of the Texas AFL-CIO building.
“Rather than engage in productive conversation about the drastically different visions that Joe Biden and Donald Trump have for our country, Trump supporters in Texas today instead decided to put our staff, surrogates, supporters, and others in harm’s way,” said Tariq Thowfeek, the Biden campaign’s communications director in Texas, in a statement.
The Biden and Trump campaigns did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Trump’s tweet.
Earlier, a state lawmaker who said she was set to join the Biden campaign Friday condemned the pro-Trump drivers′ conduct.
“Unfortunately, Pro-Trump Protestors have escalated well beyond safe limits,” tweeted Texas House Rep. Sheryl Cole (D).
The Austin Police Department was not the jurisdiction for the 911 calls, but Lt. Chris Gwaldo said some officers joined the campaign bus when it arrived in Austin. He said there were “no problems” there and no arrests.
The incident occurred in San Marco, Gwaldo said. San Marco police did not immediately respond to an inquiry Saturday evening.
Footage from CBS Austin also captures people heckling the Biden bus as it pulls out of a lot, a truck with a pro-Trump flag nearby.
“We’re here to escort you out of Texas!” a man can be heard saying.
Everybody has been waiting to see if America’s Silent Majority would show up and show out like they did in the 2016 Presidential Election.
The Democrat Elite and the Main Stream Media are facing a Reality Check.
And, they do not like it one bit.
In fact, they are panic-stricken.
They do not have a clue as to what is happening in these critical days right before the 2020 Presidential Election.
If you have been paying attention to what has been happening in the streets of our major cities for the past several months, you have seen a bunch of spoiled ungrateful wannabe anarchists, a “Woke Resistance” Movement, if you will, aided by the Far Left Democratic Party, attempt to erase our nation’s history through the toppling of historical statues and the defacing of our nation’s monuments.
Those who are acting in such a disrespectful and ignorant manner echo the sentiments of the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, and the rest of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency in 2016 and who believe that anybody who works hard for a living and believes in God and Country, is a Jingoistic imbecile.
According to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.
In other words, being guilty of believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.
For the past 2 decades at least, children and young adults, attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses have been taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America is “just another country” and to be a patriot is to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.
Evidently, the overeducated imbeciles who planned this Marxist uprising which we have witnessed take formation over the past four years have never understood in their ungrateful little lives what has made and continues to make our country exceptional.
Where the exceptionalism of America lies…is not in the Halls of Power…nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.
The secret of this country’s exceptionalism is the “Average Joe”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family.
It was this same “Average Joe”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The same “Average Joe” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them. The same “Average Joe”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.
It is this same “Average Joe”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy. The same “Average Joe”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.
And, it is this same “Average Joe” whom, being fed up with the Democratic Party’s Far Left Crusade against anything and everything traditionally American, went to the voting booth and elected Donald J. Trump, a Citizen Statesman, as our 45th President.
And, what has the Democrats in a state of panic is that history is is in the process of repeating itself right before their squinty little eyes.
Their ego-driven political ideology did not permit them to consider the reality that theirs is still the minority political ideology in this nation, as shown during the recent Marxist uprisings by Antifa and Black Lives Matters, in which they demonstrated that they champion a Far Left Fascist political ideology which none but a small minority on the Far Left of the Political Spectrum embrace.
While the East and “Left” Coast are indeed heavily-populated in their metropolitan areas with Liberals (some of them even Legal Citizens), the reality of what actually happened on November 8th, 2016 can been plainly seen on any Electoral Map.
It was an overestimation of their own intellect and an underestimation of the intelligence and unbridled love of average Americans for OUR COUNTRY, that cost the Democrats the Presidency in 2016 and which is about to cost them again on November 3, 2020.
As George Orwell said,
Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.
So, to summarize, by supporting this year’s violent Marxist riots in our major cities, by labeling Patriotism as “Jingoism”, and by ridiculing and accusing those of us who love our country and hold fast to Traditional American Values as being “racists”, the Democratic Party are once again costing themselves the Presidency.
If I was a Modern American Liberal with any sort of self-awareness, I would be throwing a temper tantrum, too…over my own ungrateful arrogant ignorance that will cause the defeat of my 2020 Presidential Candidate….along with his own dementia-driven incompetence.
Unfortunately, the Far Left “Democratic Socialists” who have taken over the once mainstream Democratic Party are not self-aware.
And, it is this lack of self-awareness that is allowing average Americans to witness the implosion and political extinction of the Democratic Party right before our very eyes.
In the opinion of this 61-year-old, sitting in the Northwest corner of the Magnolia State in America’s Heartland, Modern American Liberals, and their ideological leaders, who trod the Halls of Power with impunity, underestimated the American Spirit, just as King George and the British Aristocracy did, so many years ago.
As our enemies, both foreign and domestic, have discovered since the birth of our nation, Americans will fight for our freedom.
We showed this fact to the world on November 8th, 2016.
And now, 4 years later, thanks to the unflinching leadership of an American President, and despite a Worldwide Pandemic and the actions of those who despise our American Way of Life, our Sovereign Nation is beginning to once again rise like a phoenix from its ashes and we are on our way making American great again!
God Bless America.
Until He Comes,
