Donald Trump is planning on restarting his signature campaign rallies.
Democrats and the media are worried this will help the President win re-election.
But the Democrats’ plan to shut down Trump rallies backfired in this major way.
For months now, the Democrats have been arguing to stop Trump’s rallies due to safety concerns by the CDC.
They falsely claim these large gatherings of people will dramatically increase the spread of COVID-19 and put thousands of people in danger.
In fact, a new study of the President’s rally last month in Tulsa found the event did not contribute at all to the spread of the coronavirus.
New paper this morning estimates that Trump's Tulsa rally did not cause a spike in cases, thanks possibly to offsetting behavior in the surrounding community.https://t.co/KVOp2BVIJI pic.twitter.com/siKl2nMH0G

They constantly attack his intelligence in regards to this matter, trying to force the shutdown of his rallies.
New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio stated:
“It’s all about health and safety first. This is obviously the thing that President Trump doesn’t understand. We don’t just decree that we want things to happen regardless of the human impact. We actually look at the science, we look at the data. The data is telling us it is not time for large gatherings.”
However, de Blasio has a completely different opinion about the BLM protests.
“Hey, folks, you know, stay home if you can. But we understand at this moment in history, people are talking about the need for historic changes. I mean, today, in New York City, recognizing the power and the meaning of the message Black Lives Matter, which we did in front of Trump Tower today, this is a moment of historic change.”
So, the Trump rallies are dangerous while the same potential gatherings of people for the BLM protests are “a moment in history?”
Protests – like campaign rallies and religious services – are protected under the First Amendment.
The Constitution does not provide an exception for “in case of a pandemic” where Americans’ rights and freedoms are null and void.
But Democrats – as well as many so-called public health “experts” – send the message to the American people that Black Lives Matter protests carry some sort of special protection against the spread of the coronavirus.
They are using their protests and public actions for their own twisted benefit.
And it doesn’t matter who suffers.
If the Democrats truly believed the spiel, they gave on banning the Trump rallies, they should say the same for the BLM protests.
Coronavirus does not care about politics. It does not care about status or money.
The BLM protesters are no more immune than the people at the Trump rallies.
However, because the protests benefit the Democrats’ political agenda and public image, they support them.
Carmine Sabia Jr. expressed this sentiment succinctly:
“If black lives truly mattered to Mayor de Blasio, wouldn’t he want to keep them safe from the pandemic when the black community has already been said to be particularly vulnerable?”
The statistics show that black communities are at a higher risk for coronavirus.
