While the Guinness Book of World Records will take weeks to certify if the 1200+ boats and watercraft from the August 15, 2020 Trump Boat Parade in Clearwater, Florida broke the all time amount, there is a grassroots phenomenon spreading across America breaking historical records.
Parades and caravans in lakes, bays, rivers and intercoastal waterways are popping up throughout the United States. Along with literally hundreds of highways, city loops, rural roads and Main Street parades, thousands of Americans are uniting in their support of a sitting president the likes of which have never been seen in history.
Dubbed “Trumptillas,” they have exploded around the country over the last few months as a way to rally for the president’s 2020 campaign.
“It’s our way of shoving it to the media and socialist leaning mayors who have been doing everything they can to keep us obedient and quiet with their pandemic orders,” said Tony Alaverez, who participated in a Medina Lake parade in Texas two weeks ago. “We can practice social distancing out here and there’s nothing that mayor (Ron Nirenberg) can do about it. Maybe he acts like it, but he can’t walk on water.”
Including spectators on shore and participants in boats, kayaks, rafts and other floating apparatus, a short list of some of the Trumptillas cropping up across the nation include:
Lake Macatawa (800 total) , Lake Michigan (620), Lake Havasu (750), Lake Murray (30,000), Medina Lake (350), Canyon Lake (pending), Lake Travis (pending), Jacksonville, FL (890), New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee (600), Lake Hoptacong, NJ (480), Orange Beach, AL (330), and Alum Creek, Delaware (200).
Parades for President Trump are not limited to waterways and boats. At Florida’s Lake Sumner Landing over 650 golf carts were used by over 1,200 participants in the “Villagers for Trump Parade.” Thousands more cheered them on.
“Liberals riot, loot and destroy things,” said Roy Madison. “Trump supporters unite to back our police, military, farmers, and all that is good for Americans of every race, creed and sex. We build, not destroy.”
Among the first groups to support Trump were America’s bikers. Motorcycle enthusiasts and organizations were early to organize events and rallies in 2016 for “The Donald.” Today they are stronger and even more united in their efforts across the country.
A massive nationwide grassroots event is taking place in at least 27 states (as of August 23) on September 5th with “rolling flag” parades.
Many of these convoys, deemed “Maga Drag The Interstate Trump 2020 Keep America Great,” organizers say they will be “celebrating our amazing country, its hard-won history, our veterans, and those still fighting to defend our freedom today!”
“They will circle their highways and byways, ending at their capital cities in a glorious flurry of red, white, and blue–and a heap of old-fashioned American patriotism.”
“We are a grassroots assemblage of patriots from across the United States who are tired of seeing our country slandered by radicals and are ready to take it back,” their social media information says.
“We are patriots. We honor, God, Country, Family, and the Flag. We stand ready to defend all lives and uphold the relentless pursuit of Liberty and Freedom. We are The People.”
“We decorate our cars with flags and signage and organize into peaceful and spirited rolling flag parades that blanket the country with hope, a spirit of patriotism, and a reminder that we are more united than divided.”
“Our rolling flag parades are a fun and positive reminder than traditional American values matter. It’s time to take a stand and take our country back!”
“These various events are truly grassroots efforts for all Americans,” Tina Cortez explained. “We have people from the WalkAway movement, leaving the Democratic Party to join us–all races–to make America great again.”
