Why “Plaid Shirt Guy” Being Removed from Rally Should Concern You

It could be nothing. Or it could be a warning sign of things to come. Only time will tell.

Once again on Thursday, Donald Trump set out to do what it is he does best; he stood up and talked about himself and how great he is. Yes, instead of running our nation, working on international diplomacy, figuring out ways to feed hungry American children, or really doing anything that a decent president would be doing, he had another one of his “Look at Me!” rallies. You know, the ones where he calls the media the “Enemy of the people,” and claims that the press won’t show the crowds, and that the liberal media won’t put what he’s saying on TV. I know he says this because I watched it on TV…

Enter our hero: Plaid Shirt Guy! Or, if you want to be boring about it, Tyler Linfesty. I’m gonna stick with PSG, though.

Anyways, as many of you probably already know, this rally actually had a little bit of entertainment to it and wasn’t just hours of Trump propaganda and lies. Enter our hero: Plaid Shirt Guy! Or, if you want to be boring about it, Tyler Linfesty. I’m gonna stick with PSG, though.

PSG attended the rally on Thursday because he’s a 17-year-old kid who wanted to go see the president speak. He is a good person, who doesn’t let political titles dictate his opinions. He possesses critical thinking skill, and he used them during the speech. There were parts of Trump’s speech that he liked, and he applauded for it. The now-famous looks he gave, and the confused mouthing of “What?” to his friends, came while Trump was talking about the election. You know, the thing that happened almost two years ago that he’s still obsessed with. That.

So this young man was confused about why the president was going on about how hard it is to win the Electoral College, and that he could have won the popular vote if he’d really wanted to.

Let’s just point out real quick that Trump still talking about the election is like going back to your hometown and running into some guy you used to be friends with, and all he talks about the whole time is playing High School football and how great he was. Come on, man. It’s time to move on.

Anyways, PSG gave his wonderful looks of confusion. Not long after that a young lady came up to him and said that she was taking his spot. PSG knew immediately what was up, and, once again proving what a good person he is, removed himself from his position and calmly and politely walked away. He didn’t cause a scene. He didn’t call her a racist or start screaming about his rights being violated. He simply moved aside, and his decency is part of the reason the world has fallen in love with this young man.

It’s not hard to figure out why he was removed, though. Being positioned behind Trump during one of his “Look at me!” events, he was clearly not putting out the image of a ride-or-die Trump supporter that matters so much to this administration, so he had to go. In this strange new world that we live in it makes total sense.

Our hero later gave an interview to CNN, and the nation was able to hear the full story and gain even more respect for this young man. He and his friends were randomly selected to be in the VIP section behind the president. Before the rally started they were asked to wear the MAGA hats, and told that “You have to be enthusiastic, you have to be clapping, you have to be cheering for Donald Trump.” Read that again. You have to cheer. You have to be enthusiastic. You have to be what we tell you to be and show undying support for the president, no matter how you may actually feel. No big deal…

Despite those warnings, our brave knight stayed true to himself and questioned some of the things coming out of a politicians mouth (as we should with ALL politicians). Being a human capable of abstract thought, he dared ask the question “Why?” as Trump rambled on. PSG did not simply follow along with the crowd and conform to being another puppet that Trump could use to further his propaganda.

After PSG was asked to leave he was escorted to a room by members of the secret service. This is where it starts getting a little scary. He was only held there for about ten minutes before told that he should leave the building. He does say that the secret service members were polite to him. However…

HE WAS HELD BY THE SECRET SERVICE FOR NOT CHEERING ENOUGH FOR TRUMP!

I’m not saying this is some kind of secret police state activity. But it’s certainly not a good look for the United States of America to be detaining its citizens for not showing enough support for the president. That’s some scary dictator stuff right there and not a path that we need to go down. It’s concerning much in the same way your child telling you about the little girl that talks to him at night would be concerning. It could be nothing, or it could be a really big f-ing deal…

For now, though, it’s just a one-time thing and maybe the secret service was just playing it extra safe. They didn’t hurt the guy and he wasn’t thrown in jail. This wasn’t necessarily a big deal. But, once again… it kind of is. It’s something that needs to be paid attention to and remembered. It’s a warning sign that should not be ignored. Because if this type of thing starts becoming a pattern, that people are held and intimidated for not praising the POTUS enough, then we will absolutely start having some major problems in this nation.
