LONG ISLAND, NY – With just more than two weeks until Election Day, Trump supporters showed up in Long Island, New York in full force Sunday, October 18th.
Thousands of supporters of President Donald Trump joined a rolling rally across Long Island on Sunday, they say to mobilize support for the president’s re-election.
The mobile rally reportedly included a parade of cars, complete with Trump campaign flags and American flags.
Newsday reported that drivers began at the Long Island Railroad station in Seaford, and drove for 80 miles east down Sunrise Highway to Montauk.
A podcaster, Trump supporter, and rally organizer named Shawn Farash told the news outlet:
“We do this with class, we do this with pride because we’re proud of the country. We’re proud of the president. We’re proud of what the country stands for.”
Farash said the event was called “MAGA-gras.” He said it was the sixth event of its kind that he’s put together in the last six weeks.
On October 4th, another pro-Trump caravan got together and drove from Long Island to Trump Tower in Manhattan. That rally coincided with President Trump’s battle with COVID-19.
However, these events are not singularly focused.
Farash said in addition to showing a patriotic display or support for the President, participants also collected canned goods and other nonperishable items to donate to those in need.
Breitbart shared a picture of the massive line of cars in a post on its Facebook page. It shows a bumper to bumper parade with dozens of flags flying from the sides of cars.
The caption on the post reads:
“Whoa! Thousands of supporters of President Trump joined a rolling rally across Long Island on Sunday to mobilize support for his re-election.”
So far, the post has garnered tens of thousands of interactions, including 2,000 shares and nearly as many comments.
A Facebook user named Debbie Crim posted:
“The sleeping giant is waking up because of the corruption. I imagine true New Yorkers are tired of their governing agents… lockdown, crime, etc. Increased support for Republicans is a positive sign. Continue to support your freedoms and vote RED.”
Another user, by the name of Lynn Oxley Sharp posted:
“The real polls are in the streets and waterways!”
It is one of the many rallies happening across the country with growing frequency as the election nears.
In Ohio last weekend, hundreds of Trump supporters gathered for a parade. Local news outlet Hometown Stations reported on the parade in Ottoville:
“Residents brought their vehicles equipped with Trump 2020 signs and American flags to Ottoville Park as early as 12 pm. The parade officially started at 3 pm and drove around the city of Ottoville.”
In San Francisco Bay, there was a boat parade.
And, recently, a two-state parade spanning between Texas and Oklahoma, drew a crowd of thousands.
In Indiana and Tennessee on Saturday, a separate pro-Trump parade also drew hundreds of drivers.
In Lafayette, Indiana, organizers of an event told local media outlet WLFI that the parade allowed supporters to “share their love for the president and the country” and drew “attention to how many Trump supporters are in that area of Indiana.”
Oscar Alvarez told the station:
“I want people in Lafayette to know that there are Trump supporters. We’re not afraid. We’re not going to keep silent. We’re going to show our support.”

Where’s the media coverage of these rallies? Here is an editorial from Law Enforcement Today on that very topic:
Massive pro-Trump rally in Beverly Hills brings together black, white, gay, straight Americans – where’s the media?
October 12, 2020
BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Black Lives Matter claim to protest and rally in search of equality. And they do so through screams of systemic racism and inherent white supremacy.
They believe that those two goals are only obtainable through verbal and character attacks on entire groups of people in this country. That is what they have in common. Anger over a perceived set of ideas that they cannot actually show anyone they exist.
On Saturday, a large group of people took to the streets of Beverly Hills. And this growing group had only two things in common. They love this country and they support President Trump.
Unlike the groups who believe that anger is the way to solve perceived biases, the rally-goers showed that we already have the equality they claim to be seeking in this country.
As reported by Breitbart, the rally “was not only large and energetic, but was comprised of people from all walks of life, various races, and even genders.”
This was actually the third such rally in the upscale suburb of Los Angeles, with each one growing in size.
Breitbart News spoke with one attendee who had been to at least one of the previous rallies.
Whitney told the outlet that Saturday’s event was “the largest” rally with the “most diverse turnout.”
“The energy was running high and American pride was everywhere,” Whitney said.
There will be many on far-left end of the progressive ideology who will say that very American pride is evidence of the very systemic racism that they claim to be fighting.
While this particular event was primarily attended by only Trump supporters, the second rally was met with the hate that is always present in the crowds of BLM and Antifa.
They showed up with signs that read things like: “NAZI TRUMPS F— OFF!” and “DEPORT NAZI SCUM.”

In the Breitbart article, pictures show the very diversity that BLM and Antifa claim does not exist. The people who turned out included blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians and people of Middle Eastern decent.
The crowds include not only straight people, but also members of the LGBTQ community. Attendees were not only Christian, but also Jewish, Muslim and numerous other religions.
It was not simply an assembly of old, white men, as the left often attributes to the majority of Trump supporters. It wasn’t a group of white supremacists, as every Trump backer is accused of being.

It’s seriously not looking good for Biden when you have a Trump rally in Beverly Hills. The only way they can win is they steal it somehow and the people won’t sit back this time….pic.twitter.com/cx8FXPgdRw

It’s not the first show of support in Beverly Hills. September 5 was also a great day for America. On that day, “The American People” released a video on You Tube that absolutely destroys the hate-filled rhetoric and violence we’ve been seeing every day for the past 100 days in major American cities.
In less than two days, it has racked up 867,893 views. That is 30,000 more views than it had when I watched it ten minutes ago.
The video features LGBT activist and singer Ricky Godinez, known professionally as Ricky Rebel, as he sings his way through a protest in Beverly Hills to the music of the Village People’s Y.M.C.A.
Rebel has rewritten the lyrics however, and made them into a modern anthem for all that is great about America. It is a direct refutation of messaging from the mainstream media, the Marxist group Black Lives Matter (BLM), and the Fascist group Antifa.
Here is partial sample of the lyrics to MAGA/YMCA:
Walkaway from the hate
We’re all human
And we don’t segregate
Just like women
Help make America great
We are all in this together
Our colors are red. white, and blue
And they stand for every one of you
And together here’s what we’re gonna do
We’re gonna make America great!
Black, white, and brown
From every city and town,
We don’t let haters keep us down”

The media, BLM, and Antifa are all pushing the themes of disunity, discord, and racial division. Why? It is plain that their demands for “justice” are disingenuous.
If they were serious, they wouldn’t use it as an excuse to commit thousands of acts of injustice by assaulting, looting, rioting, burning, even acts of murder. Anyone with a genuine interest in justice would not commit any of those criminal acts, nor would they support them.
The excuse that people are so angry they cannot control themselves does not adequately explain the behavior we’ve seen around the country, nor is it believable. What is credible is that those groups are trying to destroy American values and they have chosen the tactic of inventing racism where it doesn’t exist (law enforcement) so they can cripple the one organ of government that is the greatest threat to achieving their goals: anarchy and revolution.
What Ricky Rebel and his team have done is to put everything BLM and Antifa stand for to the test. He has shown that their angry and threatening messages have no place in America. They are the outsiders, they don’t belong, and more, they are neither wanted nor needed.
Rebel has created a fun, uplifting, happy video in the middle of very turbulent times. The mere fact that he did it proves that it can be done, and that it should be done, over and over again, until the destructive racist fires encouraged by BLM and Antifa are comprehensively extinguished by the joy of being free, peaceful, law-biding Americans.
His video has to be shared far and wide. It deserves to find its way into the mind of every American. We need to be reminded that in a free America, we can express our joy at being Americans, and that we can have the courage to come out and do it publicly.
Even, as Rebel did, in the middle of a BLM protest in the stronghold of liberal America, Beverly Hills.

In the video, we see Rebel, a bisexual man who supports LGBTQ causes, dancing with Hispanic men and women, black men and women, police (whose directions he respectfully obeys), people masked and unmasked, young and old, drivers in passing cars, and pedestrians.
By pulling back the curtain and showing us this, he shows that Americans can be united and indeed are united, regardless of whatever demographic they may belong to.
In the time it took to write the above, the “BLM Riot turns into MAGA YMCA Dance Party” video jumped to 880,565 views.
[Editor’s note: At the time of editing, the video was up to over 917,000 views.]
President @realDonaldTrump is the Anti War / Peace President!
One day, the world will fully acknowledge that.
Until then MAGA on my fellow patriots! https://t.co/PdxthPE89o

Rebel released a similar video, though this one is shot on a stage, unlike the live, outdoor, unscripted version in Beverly Hills. It features Rebel, Joy Villa, Mindy Robinson, The Deplorable Choir, and Tommy Joe Ratliff.
If you know anyone who needs to see a ray of hope through the gathering clouds of war stimulated by Anti-American groups like BLM and Antifa, send them a link to these videos and give them a smile.
