It was June 20th and we antiwar vets had traveled all the way to Tulsa, Oklahoma, in the midst of a pandemic to protest President Trump’s latest folly, an election 2020 rally where he was to parade his goods and pretend all was well with this country.
We never planned to go inside the cavernous arena where that rally was to be held. I was part of our impromptu reconnaissance team that called an audible at the last moment. We suddenly decided to infiltrate not just the perimeter of that Tulsa rally, but the BOK Center itself. That meant I got a long, close look at the MAGA crowd there in what turned out to be a more than half-empty arena.
A really worrying account of those whose psyche needs urgent repair! Attacks on Trump are useless, he’s a sad reflection of a sector of Americans that are sick & this is what is urgently needed to address. This element, to be fair, exists in all societies worldwide but must be seriously monitored before it gains ground.
