The mega-rally that President Donald Trump held in Tulsa, OK happened on schedule, but it wasn’t the sell-out that everyone expected. Media screamed and howled about the event; how it was dangerous in light of coronavirus to have that many people together, and how infection rates were on the rise in certain areas. Again, the media pushed their favorite refrain that Trump is anti-science, and gathering together in support of him is irresponsible.
But the culprit, it seems, for the lower than expected attendance (but still more than Joe Biden could rally to his basement) was a social media scam. As reported by the Baltimore Sun:
TikTok users and fans of Korean pop music groups claimed to have registered potentially hundreds of thousands of tickets for Trump’s rally as a prank. After @TeamTrump tweeted asking supporters to register for free tickets using their phones June 11, K-pop fan accounts began sharing the information with followers, encouraging them to register for the rally — and then not show.
The app in question, Tik Tok, is owned by China, and many, including Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana, have been very open about the continued push of China to interfere in American life.
The scam caught on. Videos appeared on the app encouraging people to register for tickets, then no-show the event, leaving large amounts of empty seats. Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale responded to the lower-than-expected attendance on Twitter:
Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign communications director, stated, “Radical protesters, coupled with a relentless onslaught from the media, attempted to frighten off the president’s supporters. We are proud of the thousands who stuck it out.”
Enter Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who took the moment to mock Parscale and Trump:
Rep. Ocascio-Cortez made sure to appreciate the K-Pop “allies” for their “contributions in the fight for justice.”
First, what happened to the opposition of foreign interference in our elections? Perhaps if the K-Poppers were from Russia, we’d see some outrage from the morally bankrupt Ocasio-Cortez. (Clearly, K-Pop fans exist in America. But you can’t deny that Ocasio-Cortez is very fine with outside interference, which she gladly defines as “contributions.”)
Second, what an admission from Ocasio-Cortez and the usual crowd of leftist intelligentsia! They have to lie to beat Donald Trump. You had cable networks and other news organizations cheering on mass crowds for protests (and riots.) Cheering about the CHAZ/CHOP and other large gatherings. But Trump’s rally in Tulsa? That was going to get all the grandmas killed.
And now, you have a concerted effort on Chinese-run Tik Tok to keep American citizens from attending a rally for the Republican candidate for President of the United States. Elected Americans cheer the offenders on, and the mainstream media will only report on the low attendance, and not the interference.
Paging Robert Mueller! We found collusion! Paging Robert Mueller!!
The Left always overplays their hand. The cheering you hear from them about getting one over on Trump is just the sad admission that they can’t win if they play by the rules: They have to cheat to win. It’s also the harrowing reality that they will gladly, joyfully cheat to win. They’ll do anything, including working in concert with foreigners – including manipulating children! – to win. The AOC-Set truly believe that the ends justify the means.
And you now have proof. Election Day is November 3rd.
