20200919: MAGA Peaceful Protest, Fayetteville, North Carolina

Think these ladies will be at the rally, uh, peaceful protest?

After all, they are from Fayetteville.

The area of present-day Fayetteville was historically inhabited by various Siouan Native American peoples, such as the EnoShakoriWaccamaw, Keyauwee, and Cape Fear people. They followed successive cultures of other indigenous peoples in the area for more than 12,000 years.

After the violent upheavals of the Yamasee War and Tuscarora Wars during the second decade of the 18th century, the North Carolina colony encouraged English settlement along the upper Cape Fear River, the only navigable waterway entirely within the colony. Two inland settlements, Cross Creek and Campbellton, were established by Scots from CampbeltownArgyll and ButeScotland.

Merchants in Wilmington wanted a town on the Cape Fear River to secure trade with the frontier country. They were afraid people would use the Pee Dee River and transport their goods to Charleston, South Carolina. The merchants bought land from Newberry in Cross Creek. Campbellton became a place where poor whites and free blacks lived, and gained a reputation for lawlessness.[citation needed]

In 1783, Cross Creek and Campbellton united, and the new town was incorporated as Fayetteville in honor of Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette, a French military hero who significantly aided the American forces during the war.[8] Fayetteville was the first city to be named in his honor in the United States.

There’s more history at wiki that’s interesting, but this is the part…well….

In March 1865, Gen. William T. Sherman and his 60,000-man army attacked Fayetteville and destroyed the Confederate arsenal (designed by the Scottish architect William Bell[10]). Sherman’s troops also destroyed foundries and cotton factories, and the offices of The Fayetteville Observer. Not far from Fayetteville, Confederate and Union troops engaged in the last cavalry battle of the Civil War, the Battle of Monroe’s Crossroads.

Downtown Fayetteville was the site of a skirmish, as Confederate Lt. Gen. Wade Hampton and his men surprised a cavalry patrol, killing 11 Union soldiers and capturing a dozen on March 11, 1865.

Segregation, of course, was part of life there, and it is adjacent to Fort Bragg.

Given the news of the day yesterday, this one should be interesting.

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

  2. POTUS giving the backstory of why NATO is now paying up what they owe.
    “It was amazing how the money came in.” — after he told NATO that the U.S. wouldn’t continue to be there for them if they didn’t pay their share.

  3. Re John Kerry: “Isn’t he the worst negotiator?”
    POTUS — Kerry told him last year that the ME nations would never sign a deal with Israel. “Well, last week they signed a deal.”

  5. Now the backstory on the new AF1.
    “I’m not going to spend $5.1 Billion on a new plane.” “Sir, we can’t do that.” “Put a 3 in front.” “Another month goes by, and a general calls and says, ‘we can do it for $3.9. Is that all right? And it worked out.” And the rest of the backstory.

    1. And those Deep State owned pollsters EXPECT us to believe their lie that Biden is leading… or even that he is neck and neck with POTUS…

      don’t even quote their lies… just look at the PEOPLE at our PROTESTS…

      DS pollsters do this because the DIMs need their BASE to believe, so that when they say Donald Trump stole the election, the BASE will riot…

      PROTEST… PROTEST THE STUPIDITY !

  6. Re if Ole Joe wins in November:
    Ole Joe: “I’d like to rest and let Kamala take over.”
    “You can’t have this guy as your President. Maybe I’ll sign an Executive Order saying he can’t be President.”
    OMG OMG OMG
    That will LIGHT UP the lying fake news.

  7. Now I’ll tell you what i keep hearing on “conservative talk radio” from people like Bill O’Reilly, Hannity, even Limbaugh, let alone the second- and third- string hosts —
    TO A PERSON, they’re ALL pushing how POTUS “needs to stay on focus”, “Trump needs to stop going off-script”, “Trump’s biggest problem is his inability to keep his mouth shut.”
    Tonight’s Peaceful Protest improv will DRIVE THEM CRAZY.

    1. Yeah… and how many of these peeps have been president?

      Americans love him BECAUSE he talks to them… he doesn’t “speechify” or lecture them.

      They’re wrong that his mouth is his biggest problem… it’s his greatest ASSET…

    2. The gloves are OFF. Yes, use the script AND IMPROVISE throughout the speech. Bitch slap D-Rats and dumb asses wherever they may pop up.

      The political class and talking heads haven”t a clue. Sometimes they are useful idiots. But they are still idiots.

      President Trump is quite obviously in a class of his own. America First. Nearly all Rs and talking heads, still don’t get it.

  9. One would like to be a fly on the wall tomorrow morning when Ole Joe’s handlers give him the summary of tonight’s Peaceful Protest.
    Of course, Biden’s briefing will take place AFTER his handlers write out the “responses” that they’ll put up on the TelePrompter to read off.
