More than 100 President Donald Trump supporters gathered in Clovis for perhaps one last stand.
In a rally dubbed “Stop the Steal! Stand For Trump,” backers of the president prayed and said Trump should be the rightful winner of the presidential election, not Joe Biden. They staged at the Sierra Vista Mall parking lot before caravanning in Clovis and Fresno.
Fraud and Treason
“Our president is in trouble. We know that our election was stolen. We know that there was voter fraud. And we’re here to stand for our president and to say that we know what happened and something has to change.” — Rally organizer Crissy Corpus
Crissy Corpus of Clovis organized the rally.
“Our president is in trouble. We know that our election was stolen. We know that there was voter fraud. And we’re here to stand for our president and to say that we know what happened and something has to change,” Corpus said.
She cites voting machines that “had the back door that allowed for other foreign entities such as China and Iran and Russia to interfere with our election, to switch votes to Biden from Trump. We know that there was voter fraud. We know that there were suitcases of ballots that came out after everybody was told to go home. There’s too many things.”
She trusts attorneys, such as Sidney Powell, Lin Wood and Rudy Giuliani, who have filed multiple lawsuits — almost all of them unsuccessful — challenging the election results.
“I believe them,” Corpus said.
Despite the assertions that Corpus and other protesters GV Wire℠ spoke with, numerous investigations have revealed no evidence of significant or widespread fraud.
She is praying that congress today denies Biden the Electoral College votes.
During a pre-caravan invocation, Pastor Russell Bailey from Clovis Missionary Baptist Church equated the election with “treason.”
“We know this has been called election fraud. But you know, there’s another word, right? Treason. That’s why we’re here. We’re here for our country. We’re here for our children. We’re here for generations,” Bailey said.
Clovis Councilman in Attendance
Clovis City Councilman Vong Mouanoutoua appeared, chatting with protesters prior to the caravan. He said he was just supporting an event being held in the city.
“It’s happening here in our backyard. Whether it’s for the Housing Authority or whatever the issue is, just to be able to show support that people can rally peacefully and people can come and make their statements peacefully. That’s what this country is about,” Mouanoutoua said.
He does believe Joe Biden was the rightful winner. He believes the election process should move forward.
“If someone has the evidence, show it. If the time has passed, let’s move forward because it’s time to also move forward, because we need it and we need to get together as well,” he said.
