85 per cent of respondents polled on Donald Trump’s own Truth Social website think protesting against his arrest would be risking a January 6-style set-up, despite Trump himself telling them to go out and demonstrate.
Of course there will be agents provocateurs - especially FBI operatives - in any crowd supporting Trump.There will be false-flag nazis with racist banners and chants. Trump will not be able to vet the protesters outside his house in the same way he can the crowds who rally for him in his campaign.
How can the crowd insure that the press conveys a non-violent image of it? A mass sit-in or lie-in or kneel-in? Several layers of human-chain in front of the gate? Any violence would be the police forcibly removing the protesters. Would Trump have any organizers out in the crowd managing the photo-op to look like government suppression of the opposition?
Those tactics have been successful for Leftist demonstrators in decades past, as were the MLK non-confrontational marches also. These would be tactics foreign to recent Left protests/riots/burnings/lootings…and if carried out by Trump’s supporters or other conservative protests might be the very thing to go back to.
I don’t know that it would be a sell anymore. It would be a hard sell, and I know it has always been what Beck has tried to inspire, and did inspire in the gatherings, which he orchestrated last decade to bring together like-minded Conservatives.
What the Summit says:
“85 per cent of respondents polled on Donald Trump’s own Truth Social website think protesting against his arrest would be risking a January 6-style set-up, despite Trump himself telling them to go out and demonstrate.”
What the question on Truth Social was:
“Is the potential protest against Trump being arrested a J6-style trap?”
The Summit’s report is a spin.
Obviously the fascist “Democrats” will try to take advantage of mass protests just as they did the protest of January 6. Trump followers recognize this. It doesn’t mean they won’t protest, or that they are “wary” of protesting.
