Nope.  But there is ZERO reason to hold one right now. Well except to stroke his ego of course, and we all know how important that is.  

Tulsa saves the day.

I get people vote for their team and all.

But listening to this dude ramble through a speech under normal conditions is one thing. 

Doing it in a packed basketball arena with a bunch of sweaty potential Covid carrying frothed up folks. That sounds not very good. 

One thing that's been observed is that air conditioning - especially on a large scale - is one of the most rampant spreaders of this virus.  Attending this thing is Russian Roulette.  

But, I know a large percentage of Oklahomans are stout believers in God so it is possible that many of these folks believe that prayer and god will protect them and if we're going to give protesters a pass for exercising their 1st amendment rights shouldn't we also respect those who are leaning on religious rights to gather? I dunno....I think it's a bad idea but I can see why folks feel they have a right to assemble.

The misinformation about COVID that he will throw out will be staggering.

Can't wait to hear the boooooos rain down when he mentions Fauci.

Fauci is about 2 months from a super clever nickname on Twitter. Little or Overrated are most likely candidates.

Well, looks like we’re expecting trouble.

All QTs boarded up in downtown area

That’s terrible. So now we’re expecting trouble? Why would we do this now?

The country is already hurting and now we’re going to bring crowds of rally attendees and counter protesters to a small to medium sized city so the cops can get overwhelmed and property damage is expected?

What in the actual F is this guy doing? You want this happening in your city? I sure as heck wouldn’t. This is dangerous all the way around.

You do realize this virus gets its ### kicked by people the overwhelmingly vast majority of the time, right? This isn’t a zombie virus.

People can weigh the odds & make their decision...

Trump’s ego needs serious attention. He has sacrificed these pep rallies for months.

Im betting on 1 month and he’s a loser and someone he gave a break too.  His followers will follow with deep state swamp.

It’s important to people. Trump can still rally the troops nationwide.

So Sharpton gets a peaceful rally & we can’t?

That’s bull####. Slippery slope letting some punks dictate things.

So that’s saving what and why is that important?

Dave Matthews Band can rally people nation wide, even fill stadiums.  Is that important?

So when scores of MAGA rally attendees hit the hospitals in two weeks it’ll be because of BLM protests? I get where that’s coming from, but I don’t think it adds up.

I am not saying that it will be accurate, I am saying that will be the spin that will be given from the top down if there are hot spots popping up in a couple weeks.  

JMO, obviously.

Can you please point me to all these other virus‘ that have killed 120k people in the last 3 months?  And of course people can go if they want to. But if his ego wasn’t so important and in massive need of stroking he would see there is ABSOLUTELY ZERO need to do this right now.

I’m not sure what to tell you, barring you come up with a way to stop the rally.

Hmmm. Let’s see. A social uproar sparked by a murder and 400+ yrs of mistreatment advocating for change or a prep rally to stroke someone’s massive ego.  Yeah those things need to be viewed equally so we can be “consistent”. Makes total sense. 

Exactly, plus I have been consisting in saying those protests should have people wearing masks too, so :shrug:

I’m perfectly calm, but thank you for worrying about me.  I’m touched.  

But back to my question, why is this so important that it must happen in the middle of the worse pandemic of our lifetimes?

It’ll give you one hint on how to stop it.  Stop supporting it. If you and others did the same it wouldn’t happen.

So let me ask you guys this...

Who in here will admit if this was Sharpton at BOK & Trump at Greenwood & Archer, there would be NO railing on Sharpton.

Come on...at least give me that much...

So you haven't posted multiple posts about your ideas and "oh, you guys wouldn't like us"?  It's not hard to read through the lines and realize a portion of what you like is just that - irritating the other side.

And again politics (especially in this instance) and social reform are not the same thing. Stop conflating the 2.

You’re not full lib (or Dem), right?

Anyway, I do appreciate the Dems/libs in here not being dishonest & say they would rail Sharpton.

This is an election with a lot at stake.

My message irritates people. The other conservatives here same thing.

Nah, not the message, just the delivery.   And again, your posts point to that being part of the gig for you  Not like you are being coy about it or anything.

No I’m neither, but you didn’t ask libs. You said “you guys”

Every single election for POTUS has a lot at stake. This one no more then the last, or the one before, or the one before.....

Delivery? Haha. You’re getting into Sherlock territory there.

You guys (as a whole) need some self-reflection in that area for sure. You don’t get to be the only ones with a delivery.

I’m not as experienced as many of you guys, but considering the times, I’d say it might be the biggest election in recent history.

I still want to know why there’s such a large lib demographic on a football site.

Wonder how the PF compares to the SP?

You think that, but it's more about not completing thoughts/threads, not looking at multiple links given to you about a topic, etc.   Like I have said before - you take a page out of the SC playbook.

I don’t think you’ve been listening to me

From your end, it’s easy. From conservative end, not so much. I’ve got a dozen people telling me to look at stuff

It’s usually 10-1 in threads (or more). Anyway, judging from the posts, I’m getting my message across loud & clear
