Wildwood Proves Trump Maga Fever Still Raging

Some Democrats and the corporate news media continue to underestimate the power of former President Donald Trump’s racist and anti-immigrant messaging as evidenced by the turnout that the Associated Press reported to be in tens of thousands of his supporters that showed up in Wildwood over the weekend.

During Trump’s criminal trial in Manhattan, MSNBC hosts have repeatedly used the lack of the physical presence of pro-Trump demonstrators as evidence that our MAGA fever has broken. Wildwood indicates it’s still very much with us.

“When I return to the White House… We will shut down deadly sanctuary cities such as Newark and Philadelphia,” Trump told the  massive crowd. “We will not let criminals come into those cities. And we will not let them release illegal criminal aliens into your streets.”

As Max Pizarro reported Trump “brought his cruel, weird, hateful, indicted, egomaniacal, name-dropping TV personality brand to Wildwood, apparently trying to take advantage of perennial New Jersey dysfunction, while entertaining his own public delusion.”

Of course,  Trump attacked the press that were assembled to cover the rally and his adoring adherents took the prompt from their mind master and booed the assembled reporters. Like the convenor of a lynch mob, Trump’s dark power is fueled by an alchemy that makes people feel bigger and bolder unified in the hate that energizes and defines them.

There’s an instant gratification from it.

No need for discernment or fact checking. He’s right because he’s always right, which is why the politically correct establishment wants to deny him the chance to protect this country from the immigrant invasion being facilitated by Biden and the Democrats.

And here in the Garden State,  thanks to the right wing media juggernaut that’s composed of 101.5 FM, WABC 770 AM, the New York Post and Fox News there are many thousands of fans who exist in that same parallel universe with Trump. They believe the 2020 election was stolen from the former President who says he would pardon the scores of Jan. 6 insurrectionists that stormed the U.S. Capitol  waving the Confederate Star & Bars in hopes of disrupting the certification of President Biden’s victory.

Unlike in the Civil War, when the Confederate members of Congress were prohibited by the 14th amendment from being eligible for their seats when the war was over, the scores of Republican members who voted NOT to certify Biden’s 2020 victory AFTER the violent attack, continue to hold office like Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ), who chairs Trump’s New Jersey re-election bid.

Their betrayal of the U.S. Constitution has been rewarded with committee chairmanships.

“We all love America. I love Cape May. I love New Jersey,” said Van Drew, reported Pizarro.  “We see what’s happening today in a faltering economy. We’re here today because we’re tired of the open borders. There is nothing wrong with saying we believe in America first.”

America first. Hmmm. When did we last hear that catch phrase?

In the years since the attack on the U.S. Capitol former, Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the architect of so much calumny, found mass media sanctuary and a paycheck on WABC 770 Radio thanks to billionaire businessman John Catsimatidis. But the former Mayor was just one of the radio personalities in the WABC line-up that have kept the Trump 2020 big lie and virulent anti-immigrant narrative alive.

The law and order former Mayor is being criminally prosecuted in Georgia and Arizona for his role in the Trump fake electors conspiracy. Back in December, after a week-long federal civil trial, Giuliani was ordered to pay $148 million for defaming election workers Wandrea “Shaye” Moss and her mother Ruby Freeman.

Giuliani, along with Trump,  falsely accused Moss and Freeman of tampering with the ballots they were counting at the State Farm Arena for the Fulton County Board of Elections. The election workers’ lives were completely upended by the Giuliani Trump axis as the MAGA mob fixated on the two civically minded women.

On Friday, before Trump’s Wildwood rally, Catsimatidis pulled the plug on Giuliani’s  radio show  “after the station said he [Giuliani] violated its policy by trying to discuss discredited claims about the 2020 presidential election on air,” the New York Times reported.

“We’re not going to talk about fallacies of the November 2020 election,” Mr. Catsimatidis told the newspaper. “We warned him once. We warned him twice. And I get a text from him last night, and I get a text from him this morning that he refuses not to talk about it.”

What’s not clear from the reporting about Giuliani’s show being canceled is why now, after years of promoting Giuliani and his twisted worldview, WABC pulled the plug. Judging by the  size of the crowd at Wildwood the damage has already been done.

Saturday’s rally with all of the red, white and blue trappings was reminiscent of that night in February 20, 1939 when 20,000 ‘patriotic’ Americans packed the old Madison Square Garden to cheer Fritz Julius Kuhn, leader of the American Bund which supported Nazi Germany. Kuhn spoke in front of a massive rendering of George Washington.

Of course, he denounced the “Jewish controlled press.”

“We, the German American Bund, organized as American citizens with American ideals and determined to protect ourselves, our homes, our wives and children against the slimy conspirators who would change this glorious republic into the inferno of a Bolshevik paradise,” Kuhn told the crowd.

Marshall Curry  directed “A Night At the Garden”, the short documentary Academy Award film winner in 2017 that uses archival footing to depict the events of that night 85 years ago which grew a large crowd of counter-protestors outside the venue.

Documentary Magazine’s Tom White asked Curry how audiences reacted to the provocative film.

“Most people are shocked. Very few Americans that I have talked to had any idea that the rally happened, and when they watch it, they have the same sense of revulsion at what was happening—and also a sense of familiarity,” Curry said. “We have seen hateful ideologies get wrapped up in the symbols of American patriotism a lot recently.”

Curry continued. “And we have seen an uptick in hate crimes and anti-Semitic crimes, and all of this stuff that should be ancient history for America doesn’t feel like ancient history. It feels familiar.”

As familiar as this weekend’s headlines.

  1. So, why do you suppose dirty political trickster Roger Stone fronted off a 30 year old Rod Stewart Rio De Janeiro concert photograph to claim it was a picture of the Wildwood beach one?

    And,, what about reports that Trump took the stage with a convicted sex offender? Playing to his base?

    Curiouser and curiouser?
    Alice in Wonderland.

  2. Keep gaslighting Stewart. Or, should I say “Keep Stewing” in your own juices.

    150,000 show up to support Trump. All 2 dozen of you Trump Derangement Syndrome mental defectives have to make inane and insane comments to bolster your self-worth. Guess the truth hurts.

  3. The fake news media loves to spread lies, but just look at the awesome turnout for Trump. The racists are the media outlets and not Trump or his supporters. Wake up and smell the coffee, people are tired of a failing America under the Biden Administration. People need to pay rent and eat. Joe Biden couldn’t care less about the American people. He only cares about his pockets being lined with the green stuff. Cash only is Biden’s motto.

  4. Just found out that Dominion computer voting systems motherboards (which New Jersey has contracted with) are built and tested in China. They are then repackaged in Taiwan and sent to the U.S. In addition, it’s alleged that one of Dominion’s employees, Andy Huang, was able to access the servers remotely from Canada. Huang once worked for a Chinese telecom known to be a CCP affiliate as well. Hence, Dominion computer voting systems (and Smartmatic and any other computer voting systems in NJ) are compromised and should be immediately removed before the general election.

    Barry County, Michigan Sheriff’s Department, specifically Sheriff Dar Leaf, has been tracking and investigating this for several years due to election interference and uncovered the “map” of where and how the CCP is involved. This was brought out by Peter Bernegger, President of Election Watch, Inc.

  5. MAGA Fever??????? That’s a new one. I guess wanting a normal country back, a growing economy, massive reduction in inflation, stopping unemployment and increasing employment in all demographic sectors again, secured (closed) borders and removal of millions of illegal aliens, bringing back oil, gas and coal to strengthen the economy again, rebuilding the military, stopping the 2-3 wars started by Biden, and ending the social culture rot brought about by the LGBTQ and Trans agendas, is now considered something bad when over 100 MILLION registered voters (including Democrats and Independents) want this?!?!?!?!?!?
