Tulsa Rally Attendee Says ‘Multitude’ of People Locked Out of Arena

On Sunday, a Spreely user named James Lowe said that he attempted to go to President Trump’s rally in Tulsa over the weekend, but was unable to enter the arena, even though he and, we presume, his wife, had acquired tickets to attend.

Jeannie and I had reserved tickets to attend the rally,” he said on Spreely.  “Although somewhat chaotic with people driving by yelling obscenities at us as we walked, a mean mug or two and a fight or two breaking out around us, everything wasn’t actually that bad. However, finding a gate entrance was quite the task…nothing was clarified – and NO..no protesters were blocking entrances.”

He continued:

“We finally found how to get in. At the exact moment we approached the first barrier (police tape) there were police lined up at the tape and at the opening we were greeted by the Secret service or contract military (not sure who they were) at 6:05 p.m. who told us, along with a multitude of others at our gate (there was three seperate (sp) entrance gates at various locations) that we could not enter.

“We asked why? They said that the BOK had reached its capacity and the temperature checkers had left prematurely and acted pretty smug about it which I thought was strange. Some who waited with us said they had friends on the inside who text and told them that there were still many empty seats available.

“So, we waited at the police tape entrance dumb founded for 20 minutes until the police line started backing up and went through a 10 foot fence and chained and locked the gate. No other explanation. Further, no one was even allowed into the jumbotron area to watch it outside.

“We walked with a man on our way back to our car, who was on the inside but decided to leave, who also said that there were many more seats available. This is the absolute first hand truth.

“So, we drove home to watch what was left of the rally on tv to see many empty seats in the background and hear nothing but lies from reporters who reported that the Trump rally didn’t have the turnout that they expected inside and no one even turned out to rally outside to watch the jumbotron (which is exactly what a supporter waiting with us said the media would say).

“Nothing but lies! We were lied to! They locked a multitude of us out! They even reported that Trump was surprised at the low turnout. If I can get a message to the President, I will tell him how they duped him at this rally and how he is getting played by those who surround him.”

Since the rally, propagandists in the liberal media have taunted Trump over the attendance numbers while CNN propagandist Brian Stelter seemed giddy that a left-wing activist reportedly used a Chinese app to help sabotage the rally.

On top of that, Newsbusters tells us that CNN and MSNBC censored 97 percent of the speech.

According to Scott Whitlock:

CNN, MSNBC and Fox News all went live at 8 PM ET from the Bank of Oklahoma Center and the President began speaking at 8:14. Media Research Center analysts tallied how much time the three cable news channels actually showed the President speaking. CNN and MSNBC treated the speech as though it was radioactive, only allowing brief clips as the hour progressed

It wasn’t until 8:39 that host Wolf Blitzer dipped in for the first time and played a paltry 29 second clip. He then quickly turned to NAACP President Derrick Johnson to call the still-going speech “dangerous” and fanning “racial hatred.” At 9:15, before playing a clip of Trump talking about positive over-testing for COVID, Blitzer prefaced, “This is really, really, I think fair to say, shameful. Listen to this.”

Since Trump himself wasn’t featured much on CNN, the network filled the time by mocking the crowd size as pathetic. Blitzer needled, “Turnout for the event has been smaller than expected…. Clearly not a full house.” CNN political analyst April Ryan openly derided the event as a disease factory: “I have the right to say this after covering four presidents over the last 23 years. He is not considered the commander-in-chief at this moment. The spreader-in-chief…. This is coronapalooza.”

MSNBC, Whitlock said, echoed CNN in its paltry coverage of the rally.  So, one might ask, how well do they cover Biden?  Whitlock adds:

On June 17, Joe Biden conducted a rare public event, giving a campaign speech in Darby, Pennsylvania. CNN went live with the speech for 15 minutes straight. MSNBC offered 18 minutes. Fox News showed the consistency that the other two networks couldn’t manage. Just as the network played Trump’s speech, FNC aired Biden for 18 minutes straight. 

Of course…  And we can expect a lot more of this between now and November.

Fox News, by the way, said that nearly eight million people watched the rally on its network, “making it the most watched Saturday in the network’s history during that time period, according to early Nielsen data.”

We reached out to Lowe for further comment, but did not get a response.
