Trump Booed by Libertarians: A Political Party’s Fifteen Minutes of Fame


by Don Surber

The political press is yukking it up because some Libertarians booed Trump at their presidential nomination convention. That is fine. Ask yourself when was the last time the Libertarian presidential candidate mattered. That Trump drew the press to the convention was the real story.

Libertarians went through seven rounds to pick their candidate. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lost in the first round. Chase Oliver, a gay Georgian, defeated “none of the above” with 60% of the vote in the final round.

BBC led with “Donald Trump was booed repeatedly during an appearance at the Libertarian Party’s national convention on Saturday as he asked members for their support,” because that was the news.

The Biden campaign tweeted,

“A seething and unpopular Trump lashes out and belittles the audience as they boo him.”

There’s your left-wing media spin.

Angela Elise McArdle, chairwoman of the Libertarian National Committee, tweeted back,

“You didn’t even show up. You have zero credibility.”

There’s your story.

The Trump train keeps a-rolling. Democrats, RINOs and deep-staters keep trying to derail him. They rigged the election and then went for the throat. They imprisoned hundreds of Trump supporters on the premise that a visit to the Capitol is an insurrection. They impeached Trump over it. Then they investigated the visit in the hope of finding a crime.

The DC dummies then raided Trump’s home and gave the FBI a license to kill him. Only a Trump trip to NYC that day spared the nation a Mar-a-Ruby Ridge.

FJB did not stop there. Democrats filed bogus civil suits that Democrat judges shepherded juries through. That was not enough to quench their thirst for vengeance for daring to win the presidency. Democrat prosecutors got grand juries to OK four indictments on 91 charges.

The public has had enough. The mugshot last August was just too much. Within three weeks he took the lead in presidential polling and except for a small State of the Union bump by FJB, Trump has not relinquished that lead. There is talk of him picking up black and Hispanic votes, we shall see. Single women — particularly baby mamas — are the only voting bloc that Biden dominates.

The trials in New York — one of them for taking out a loan and paying it back with interest — have turned him into a martyr. He drew 100,000 people to a rally in New Jersey, a state he lost by 16 points four years ago.

Then he went to South Bronx.

Roger Kimball wrote:

Future historians, psephologists, and political analysts, searching for the day and time that Joe Biden’s 2024 campaign imploded beyond recovery, are likely to settle on Thursday May 23, 2024, at approximately 7 p.m. It was then that Trump’s surprising rally in Crotona Park in the South Bronx really got underway. I didn’t hear any actual bells tolling, but if you listened carefully you could discern the mournful obligato that signaled the end of Joe Biden’s hopes in New York — and therefore the country.

A little over the top but I like it.

Trump is not a martyr. He is a man who with the Lord’s help stands on his own two feet. He gives hope. Cynical Publius tweeted about the Bronx speech:

1. Trump did not put on an affected, fake accent of an A.M.E. Zion minister or Chi Chi Rodriguez (See: Hillary). He was simply Trump, without airs or any patronizing words or thoughts.

2. He did not tell the people of the Bronx that they were victims. He told them that they were powerful and could solve their community’s problems themselves.

3. He did not demonize any groups of Americans as the evil “Other.” Yes, he criticized the failed policies of Democrats and poked fun at their foibles, but he reminded everyone that we are all Americans first, from coast to coast.

4. He did not promise to solve the problems of the Bronx with handouts or wealth redistribution. He merely promised that he would help set the national economic conditions so the community itself could solve its own problems through jobs, business and education. He promised empowerment, not victimhood.

This election is far from over. Pandering works. FJB has trillions to throw at voting blocs. And the FBI is working hard to show whose side it’s on:

Libertarians are just another bunch of pathetic little mindless morons with their noses glued to CNN Fake News

That goes for a lot of independents and Democrats, too. The polls said 49% of independents and 37% of Democrats now agree with Mr. Stone (while 72% of liberals disagree).

Actually, if worded differently, it would be 100%. All recognize that Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden has turned the DoJ, including the FBI, into a GESTAPO-like weapon to use against political “enemies”. It’s just some are disgusted by it and some thinks it’s just great.

Obstruction of justice?

Is this guy stupid or what?
