The graphic below arrived as you see it, promoting a Trump rally in my generally peaceful town. I confess that I am struck by the insight of the creator of the notice, apparently knowing me well enough to observe that I am a “socialist moron,” even as they misspelled “physical.” I am a bit concerned that they thought it necessary to instruct their attendees that there will be “no pysical fighting with the socialist morons.”

This is the “anti-American ‘Covid Scoreboard'” sign by the railroad tracks (not in the park), complete with vandalism. Power, apparently, to the spray painters.

This calls for a counter-protest

I’m happy to meet them in the park. I hope to engage in a civil discussion and avoid name calling and demeaning behaviors. I promise to do my part.

The location of this event is a bit confusing, as the writer of the announcement says their rally is in the Village Green Park (that’s clear), but then says they’ll be protesting in front of the “anti-American ‘Covid Scoreboard.'” I only know of one Covid-related sign and it isn’t in the park. It’s a block west where Shermer Road intersects Walters Avenue by the railroad tracks. We’ll figure it out Friday, even if we’re socialist morons.

Bring signs and flags of support for Biden and Democracy

Note that Trump supporters are encouraged to also bring megaphones. This is a small area and I’m guessing such things won’t be necessary for counter-protesters. But if you’re so moved, do whatcha gotta do.

And wear your mask, even if the Trump supporters don’t wear theirs. Especially because the Trump supporters won’t wear theirs.


See you there.

    Does the tone of this unsolicited post strike anyone else as sounding fascist or Nazi? It seems so to me.

    And being one who receives inordinate amounts of such unsolicited fb posts despite my best efforts to block them, i feel qualified to readily identify such things.

    Further, I make every effort to keep up Daily with the goings on and discoveries in our Trumpian world as disgusting/revolting as such information is, “the Trump” seems to have stooped to the ultimate low. Or perhaps he’s just reverting to his national heritage. Either way, neither is acceptable in our American society or politics.

    Just another reason to get registered and VOTE, whether in person or by mail-in ballot, VOTE. On or before November 3, 2020, VOTE.
    VOTE to eliminate Nazism and fascism from the American political landscape.
    VOTE to exercise your right to do so, to be part of the voice of those who are in charge of this country, We The People.
    Whatever your reason or motivation, VOTE!


    I heard from a couple guests on Morning Joe that Trump and his complicit Republicans have spoken to governors and their legislative bodies in KEY states to “rig” the ballots!

    This election is about DICTATORSHIP VS DEMOCRACY
