Pro-Trump group plans counter rally to local “families belong together” protest

A peaceful “Families Belong Together” protest is planned for June 30 at the corner of Brunswick and Sutton in Grass Valley.

But the protest doesn’t sit well with some local pro-Trump supporters, so a “counter rally” is planned. “I was contacted about being part of a rally to support the ‘wall’ and other reasonable policies on immigration. I plan to be there,” Todd Juvinall reported on his political blog.

“We don’t know how many people the ‘Families etc.’ will muster for the event but whatever their number I hope we can outnumber them!” the pro-Trump contingent said. “I will have signs for everybody with slogans appropriate for this event, however if you’d like to make and bring your own sign you are welcome to.”

We’re going to be enjoying the Great Outdoors, one of the best reasons for living here.

  1. Memo to Todd: 400,000 people nationally are going to be part of this “families belong together” rally. You go Todd! Of course, the good news is that someone else will hand Todd a sign to hold, so we can be more assured it will be spelled correctly .Todd’s blog, for those who don’t know, is “Sierra Dragon’s Breathe (sic).” sierradragonsbreathe.blogspot.com/ ROFLOL!

  2. We had 250 people packed in Robinson Plaza last night for the End Border Brutality Candlelight Vigil. Children were running free among us.

    1. Thanks Reinette. Was Todd Juvinall there? This blog has been a catalyst for the political change that has been necesssary to move our community to “purple” from political extremism. And guess what Todd, it’s happening! Right under your nose.

  3. They were about as effective as a wilted flower. After so many of us filled the whole area, they just wandered away. No support from passersby either.

    1. Huh? “… Barry also practices election law.Barry graduated …”

      Oops! No space after the period — on the law firm’s website, no less.
      “Typos on your law firm’s website aren’t a good look. When potential clients catch a typo, they may question the level of care you will devote to their case.”

      LOL.

  4. I’m loving that the small minded, small group only paled in numbers compared to the wonderful protesters.
