I was curious about the caravan protest yesterday.
I took my dog and spent a couple of hours walking around downtown and the gathering site at the municipal building.
I saw the few “caravan” members yelling to each other about the governor, but the only audience was their own people.
I saw someone taking the pictures that were published last night (link).
I walked back to a spot in front of CB Fox to observe. I was curious to see if there were supporters or counter protestors.
Much to my surprise, I think I was the only person paying attention.
It seemed like it took them an hour to arouse themselves at the municipal building, but the “caravan” was over in less than 5 minutes.
No one seemed to care. There were merely 15-20 cars driving with masks on and intermittently, quietly honking.
No supporters, no counter protestors that I could see from the municipal building to Ashley Pond. Just a meaningless photo op for a Trump disciple council candidate.
