I had to add this tweet – this person lives in Bloomington! NIOT!

These pics are from the NIOT Bloomington-Normal Facebook page. Obviously not all the attendees agreed with what was being said, both pics show numerous people sitting and not clapping while other are standing and cheering.
Supposedly the signs mean they don’t support the “hateful messages” Trump is sending on immigration.
Was anybody welcomed at this event with a different opinion? If you voted for Trump because he campaigned on securing our borders and keeping terrorist out – you were not included in their “inclusive welcoming” speech. I appreciate the self-labeling by those opposed to “diversity of thought”, evidently they are selling a lot of signs. I was outside with the people who showed up to protest the event. People passing actually cussed at us. Very inclusive and welcoming!
That brings me to the tweets I received after this event. This is just a few of them. At least some of these people were at the event cheering “love”, “diversity”, and inclusiveness”.
Not In Our Town has supporters who preach hate. It’s so easy to hide behind a tweet! Note the fake names, sorry to the people I didn’t print tweets from. Keep tweeting your hate if you want it printed in the future.
One more thing. NIOT was billed $918 for this event. Alderman Karen Schmidt is listed as the organizer – see the contract and bill HERE
Elections have consequences when Democrats win. When Republicans win its war. The local press is pretending this event wasn’t a Democrat campaign rally. It was, they just didn’t post that in advance.
