It appears that Team Trump is Dead Serious about stealing Minnesota’s 10 Electoral Votes out of the blue column in 2020.
And to make The Point, they are sending El Donaldo right smack dab into the middle of the Heart of the Blue Beast: Target Center in downtown Minneapolis on October 10.
You gotta give it to The Trumpster – he’s decided to Stir the Crazy Pot in a city where he carried about a whopping 8 or 9% of the vote in 2016.
This is where Ilhan Omar grabbed nearly 80% of the ballots in the 2018 mid-terms.
Don’t expect a Friendly Reception.
More likely than not There Will Be Blood.
In order to understand just how bad things are in downtown Minneapolis these days consider this: for the first time ever the management of the Twins, Vikings, Timberwolves and Lynx put out a joint presser decrying the Baltimorian levels of street violence that now plague the Hennepin & Nicollet Avenue sports and business district:
Leaders of all four Minneapolis-based sports teams are using their collective voice to speak out about crime downtown. They hope city council members are listening
It’s not Mary Tyler Moore’s city anymore.
And as far as what to expect when The President visits for a red-hat rally in a couple weeks the Seer of Sparta, Brunostradamus, can fill you in on exactly what is going to happen when Trump comes:
First, the radical Black Lives Matter protest cadre will effectively shut down the major freeway exchanges in and surrounding the downtown area. They have the battle-hardened shock troops experienced from shutting down freeways in St. Paul, Bloomington and south Minneapolis over the past few years and there is No Way they’ll pass on this low hanging media coverage fruit.
At the same time there will be another yuge protest over in the U of MN & Somali Cedar-Riverside area. Expect that group to wind through city streets on the way to circling Target Center with Antifa Lite.
There will be complete traffic gridlock in and around downtown.
Expect some idiot to go The Full Palestinian – likely ending up getting run over and killed in an attempt to try and stop the light rail train that dumps out rally going Deplorables at the Target Center station stop.
Education Minnesota is the most reliable financial base for the DFL Resistance in Minnesota. Fully expect MPLS Public Skool Youths to be encouraged to protest; there will be school walkouts with parental blessing across the city in order to swell the crowd with the Hatchlings of the Activist Progressive Elite.
The DFL pols who own the Minneapolis City Council will pass a resolution condemning Trump for coming to “spread hate, division, racism and other bad things”. Boy Mayor Jacob Frey (soon to be a One Term Wonder) has already announced that President Trump is not welcome in Minneapolis.
The Local Media Shills will do their part by breathlessly reporting every spasm and machination of Liberal Goodness while also warning people to stay away from Target Center because the MAGA supporters safety cannot be guaranteed by a police force on stand down.
There will be fist fights (best case) between rally goers and fully rabid, enraged protesters which may potentially escalate to hammer & pipe beatings (as in Little Mogadishu this summer) or stabbings and, God forbid, gang inspired gun play.
The Target Center/Target Field complex is Gang Turf from dusk to dawn and there is no reason to think The Chaos & Intimidation will abate for a presidential visit.
And as long as Brunostradamus is making predictions, expect the Yankees to sweep the Twins in the ALDS playoffs…
