Given that the likely Republican candidate for governor in Montana is an unrepentant bigot, the last thing we want people to see in our state is a full house of Donald Trump supporters cheering on his incoherent, xenophobic rants when he visits the state this week. We’ve got one bigot too many running for high office in the state right now to worry about another developer from back east making the state look bad.
Unable to attend the event in Billings, a local friend and teacher, Jesse Franzen, came up with an excellent way to register our displeasure about the message of a candidate whose half-baked ideas and troubling worldview deserve condemnation.
His answer? Order tickets to the event. And don’t show up. Encourage your friends to do the same. Post your tickets on Facebook and let people just how easy it is to give Trump the empty seats to match his empty suit.
I got four this morning, in two separate orders.
If enough people reserve seats and don’t attend, Trump will receive the exact message someone with his views deserves: our contempt and disregard.
Order your tickets here and make other plans today.
