Democrats and their media allies who continuously attempt to tear down the MAGA movement "have no idea of the sleeping giant that they have awoken," former President Donald Trump said at a rally in Youngstown, Ohio on Saturday night.
"The American people will never accept the corruption and the ruination of our beloved country," Trump said.
The rally aired live on Newsmax but was mostly ignored even by so-called "conservative" news outlets and Fox News. The energy in the arena was palpable even for those watching remotely.
For Americans who rely on social-corporate media for their information diet, the riveting Youngstown rally was a non-event.
Among the highlights from Trump's speech:
"There’s a lot of bad news from our country, but there’s also a lot of hope and that’s what we need. We need hope. We need competence, because we certainly have not been getting it for two years. You know that. Less than two months from now, the people of Ohio are going to vote to fire the radical left Democrats. You’re going to elect J.D. Vance to the U.S. Senate."
"You’re going to elect an incredible slate of true American first Republicans up and down the ballot. And together we are going to end crazy Nancy Pelosi’s political career once and for all. Under Biden, Pelosi, Schumer and the ultra left Democrat Congress, our country is being ripped apart and the American dream is being torn to shreds. Sad, sad, sad. What’s happening? The stock market just had one of the worst seven day periods in history and it actually had the seven worst days. Think of it. Seven worst days in the history of our country. It’s been one of the worst years for stocks in history."
"Our country is being invaded. It’s an invasion by millions of illegal aliens from all over the planet and left wings sickos pumping toxic anti-American propaganda into the minds of our beautiful youth. They’re destroying our youth. The choice this November is simple. If you want to continue this national catastrophe, vote for the radical left Democrat. Let’s do it, go ahead. You won’t have a country left. If you want to stop the destruction of America and really reinvigorate that good old fashion, American dream, you must vote Republican. You have to do it."
"For six straight years, I’ve been harassed, investigated defamed, slandered, and persecuted like no other president and probably like no one in American history. Yet all I have ever wanted and all we’ve ever fought for is to simply, very simply make America great again."
"But no matter what, our sick and deranged political establishment throws at me, no matter what they do to me, I will endure their torment and oppression and I will do it very willingly. They will never get me to stop fighting for you, the American people."
"Our cruel and vindictive political class is not just coming after me. They’re coming after you through me. That’s what they’re doing. And they’ve already taken away your vote. They’ve taken away your voice and now they want to take away your freedom. And it’s not going to happen by the way."
"Used the FBI to spy on patriotic parents and criminalized political dissent as if we were a third world country, a third world dictatorship. But the thugs and tyrants attacking our movement, and there’s never been a movement even close in the history of the United States, have no idea of the sleeping giant that they have awoken."
"The American people will never accept the corruption and the ruination of our beloved country. And that’s what they want to do. You look at these policies. These policies are mad. On November 8th, we are going to vote in record numbers and we are going to send these left wing lunatics a message they cannot cancel silence or ignore."
"I say this all the time, you could take the five worst presidents in American history and put them together and they would not have done the damage Joe Biden has done to our nation in just two short years."
"The Republicans are not doing too well, and now after what happened and watching our country go to hell, we may have to do it again. May just have to do it again. Stay tuned, everybody, stay tuned. We’re up, we’re way up in this great state. But first, we have to win a historic victory for the Republican party this November. We have to do it. We have to swamp them because they cheat like hell. Among our highest priorities must be to end the nightmare, Joe Biden and congressional Democrats have done deliberately creating chaos on an open border. I thought they were, I don’t know. Can that be good politics when you look and you see millions of people just walking into our country? First of all, I’m doing so well with a Hispanic vote, I think most of those people are going to vote for me and a lot of Republicans. Wouldn’t that be funny? Wouldn’t that be nice? They let in millions and millions of people and they vote for Trump. Thank you very much, I appreciate it."
