E-City Beat would like to extend a big, hearty “WELCOME TO GREAT FALLS!” to the President and Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces. We’re not only proud to welcome President Trump, we’re excited and grateful that he has chosen our town for a Montana rally.
Just consider the thousands and thousands of dollars pouring into our local businesses and economy over the next few days, not to mention the hundreds and hundreds of out-of-town visitors. Imagine the national exposure for our beautiful city. What a great opportunity and privilege to have our President here during the Independence Day extended weekend.
Unfortunately there are some in our community who have allowed hate to trump their love of our community. Have you seen the social media campaign to organize protests while the President is here? We have no problem with peaceful, reasonable opposition and protest, but what we are seeing here in Great Falls now is just more of the same old hate and obstruction from the unhinged far left usual suspects. Here is the FB event posting for their demonstration.
“Refuse service to Donald Trump and his entourage.”?
“Donald Trump is NOT WELCOME in our city…”?
“Rally against and refuse service to Trump”?
Is that the love that trumps hate? It doesn’t sound like it. In fact it sounds like these folks have been listening to Rep. Maxine Waters and taking their cues from her hateful and divisive calls to incite mobs against Trump Administration officials and others.
“Is that the love that trumps hate? It doesn’t sound like it. In fact it sounds like these folks have been listening to Rep. Maxine Waters and taking their cues from her hateful and divisive calls to incite mobs against Trump Administration officials and others.”
The organizer for the Great Falls anti-Trump rally is 2018 Great Falls school board candidate and Great Falls MSU Director of the Weaver Library and eLearning, Laura Wight.
We found it interesting looking at the list of people who are going to the protest which includes local Great Falls State Representative Casey Schreiner (D). We have to wonder why Schreiner, a public official elected to represent ALL of us, would support and associate himself with a group that calls on local businesses to refuse service to fellow citizens.
Doesn’t Schreiner understand the big economic benefit this event will have for local business or that telling our President he is “not welcome in our community” is not one of our local values?
We hope voters remember how out of touch Representative Schreiner is when it comes time to vote this November. We don’t believe that embracing the “We Hate Trump” movement and having such open disdain and disrespect for our President, who won in a landslide in Montana and a wide margin in Cascade County, is providing the leadership or representation we deserve here.
