20200917: MAGA Rally, Mosinee, Wisconsin

So, let’s see, where is Mosinee, Wisconsin.

Essentially, out in the middle. From wiki:

The traditional inhabitants of the area were the Ojibwe, the Potawatomi and the Menominee.[5] However, the name is the Hochunk Mōsį́nį, the “Cold Country,” from , an old form of , meaning “earth, ground, land, country”; and sį́nį, “cold.”[6] The Ojibwe ceded the territory to the United States in 1837 when they sold most of their land in what would become Wisconsin, though they were guaranteed the right to continue hunting, fishing, and gathering wild rice on the ceded lands.[7] Similarly, the Potawatomi gave up their land claims in Wisconsin in 1833, and the Menominee ceded territory in this area in the 1836 Treaty of the Cedars.[8][9] These treaties coincided with the establishment of the first sawmill in the area by a white settler, John L. Moore, in 1836, and enabled white settlement to begin in the area. Lumber quickly became the most important industry and drew other businesses and settlers to the town, which at the time was known as Little Bull Falls. After the closing of Fort Winnebago in 1845, a number of Métis families moved to Little Bull Falls, and in 1857 the town was renamed in honor of an Ojibwe chief from the Wisconsin River Band. Deforestation led to the collapse of the lumber industry in the early 20th century, but it was quickly replaced by the paper industry.[10] In the neighboring Menominee language the town is called Mōsāpnīw, “he dwells alone there”, which is likely a close approximation of the eponymous chief’s name.[11]

There’s some interesting trivia about the place.

On May 1, 1950, local residents acting as Communist invaders seized control of Mosinee.[12][13]

The action was a part of an elaborate pageant organized by the Wisconsin Department of the American Legion. The “Communists” dragged Mayor Ralph E. Kronenwetter and Police Chief Carl Gewiss out of their beds. Mayor Kronenwetter surrendered at 10:15 AM in the town’s new “Red Square” with a pistol to his back. The police chief was reported to have resisted and was “liquidated”.

Roadblocks were set up around Mosinee, the library was “purged”, prices of goods were inflated for the duration of the coup, and local restaurants served Russian black bread and potato soup for lunch.[14]

As he arrived at a rally to restore democracy to the community the night of May 1 Mayor Kronenwetter suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and never regained consciousness. He died five days later on May 6, 1950 at age 49. The mayor’s doctor said the excitement and exertion probably contributed to his collapse.

Franklin Baker, commander of the local American Legion post, said, “It was a terrible coincidence.”[15]

Local minister Will La Brew Bennett, 72, who, during the Communist invasion, demonstrated to the media how he would hide his Bible in the church organ if the Communists really invaded and was herded with other residents into a barbed-wire ringed “concentration camp” near “Red Square”, was found dead in his bed hours after the mayor’s death on May 7, 1950.[16]

Well, alrighty then.

I’ll add live links to this post during the late afternoon as they become available.

  1. When he contrasts the agendas of both parties – it is just astounding the difference – how can anyone vote to destroy what President Trump has worked so hard to build – don’t even want to think about it.

    1. If they knew they wouldn’t vote for Joe, but the sheeple don’t get their news like we do – the Malignant MSM does a good job keeping the truth from getting out there. Add in Big Tech/Social Media controlling/interfering in our mass communications…and that’s why you see plausible polls where Biden’s ahead.

      We have to overwhelm their fraud voting by huge numbers for MAGA. I do think they’re seriously unaware of just how many silent POTUS voters their are – from the minority communities, and the Dems themselves.

      Schweikart has been following the college shutdowns – Dems made a mistake keeping schools shutdown – colleges do lots of progressive damage when the students vote in the local communities. This year will be different.

      1. It is a nail biter for sure, lady – I agree – they underestimate the MAGA vote – just as they did in 2016 – this time – it will be massive – hopefully, so YUGE it will override their little games – I also think there will be a great number of poll watchers – and ballot counters –

        Calling all Warrior Angels – to thwart their evil tricks – remember – God Wins!!!

        1. Duchess, I just left a comment in the rally thread. POTUS tweeted about a rally in Virginia. That’s big news. Means Virginia might be in play. 🙂

              1. I know there is a strong possibility fraud will play a part – especially, since the voting rolls have never been properly scrutinized – in 2018, over 100% of voters were recorded – they should know how many are of voting age – how many are illegal – and how many are dead.

                So, yes – I can see where you would say no more than 40 for PT.

  3. I watched the rally on CSPAN. Afterward, they showed something with Kamala Harris. She was sitting on a stage, speaking with a mask on, wearing a pantsuit, with her legs spread apart like a man. Though she didn’t do it on this occasion, she cackles like Hillary, and I think she uses laughter to try to connect with people. It seems fake and fails miserably. She comes across as a phony.

    In listening briefly to her, I was struck by how often she uses the term “conversation.” “We had a conversation about Puerto Rico.” If asked a question she doesn’t want to commit to answering, she says, “I think we should have that conversation.” She does not stand on principle. I hope VP Pence eats her lunch in a debate.

    1. “conversation” is most likely shorthand for Hegelian Dialektik, i.e. thesis:antithesis::synthesis (the “third way”)…

      Otherwise known as managed conclusions. Had that a lot at HP starting with Carly… You think you’re in a discussion(conversation) debating a point or making a decision, but the outcome has already been determined…

      The DEMONicRATS know all of the evil tricks, and use them every chance that they can…

  4. I loved seeing him in his long top coat!
    🤩😊
    He looks great in it and he wears it so well.

    Our VSG really took the gloves off this time.
    I hope he keeps doing it.
    😁

    Thank you for another great Rally Thread, DePat!
    I really appreciate all the work you do for us on all these threads you do for us.
