I am about to present you with another….
And what a story it is.
U.S. Uncut, an alt-left website supporting the anti-Trump “resistance” movement, published an article Tuesday claiming that a Florida pastor stormed out of Trump’s “demonic” rally after the antics of Trump supporters left the pastor’s 11-year-old daughter “sobbing in fear.”
According to the story, Pastor Joel Tooley of the First Church of the Nazarene in Melbourne attended the nearby rally with his daughter so that she could have the opportunity to see the president in person.
“After all, how many times do you get to see the President of the United States in person – let alone in your hometown? I was eager for her to have this experience,” wrote Pastor Tooley.
The article claims that Tooley was “shocked and horrified” by the behavior of Trump supporters, alleging that the crowd turned into an “angry mob” after protesters began heckling the president and calling him a bigot. Tooley claims that his protective instincts took over, leading him to intervene between the angry mob and protesters.
“My kid was shaken – she had just seen some of the worst of humanity.”
The U.S. Uncut story paints a picture of a simple church pastor who only wanted to take his 11-year-old daughter to see the President of the United States– arriving at the event in slack-jawed awe and wonder and walking away in disgust and shame. It would be a pretty powerful message, if only it were true. It was in fact, pure propaganda, plain and simple. In the interest of space, this is the “Pastor’s” FaceBook link to his very long and descriptive story of the horrible experience, and his heroic efforts to save the Anti-Trumpers and his traumatized 11 year old daughter from the monstrous Trump supporters. It’s a real tear-jerkin’ doozey : CHECK IT OUT HERE For added entertainment, be sure to read the comments and praise for his actions from the sheeple.
But wait….a quick check of “Pastor” Tooley’s Twitter account reveals that Tooley was a vocal anti-Trumper long before he ever decided to attend the Melbourne rally with the goal of giving his daughter a “positive presidential memory”– a stark contrast to the humble, nonpartisan church leader described in the U.S. Uncut article.
Not voting for either, my final assessment based on their closing thoughts: she’s a confident, intelligent communicator; he’s a mouthy brat.
Earlier that week, ‘Pastor’ Tooley posted a tweet bashing Trump’s grammar, and followed up less than an hour later by labeling Trump supporters as “impressionable non-thinkers”.
Donald pulled out the “Trojan horse” comment – great; now every impressionable non-thinker will believe him.
However, Tooley’s tweets about his daughter– the same one who was horrified to the point of tears– clearly indicate that both knew perfectly well what they were in for when they decided to attend Trump’s Melbourne rally.

In fact, when Trump came to town during the campaign season, Pastor Tooley expressed no desire whatsoever to attend, stating that he’d rather go to Walmart.
One of the 2 major political candidates is in town tonight – seems like a good time to go to Walmart.
What a shame that NO ONE in that crowd of thousands had a camera or camcorder to film these atrocious actions to display on every MSM station to prove they are right about the evilness of the Trumpers !
Ya think he may have an ulterior motive for all of this ? According to his FB page, he is Executive Director of Nazarene Centro de Refugio. And just what is their mission I wonder ? Let’s see…
We recently completed an important project with the Office of Refugee Resettlement under a 1-year urgent and compelling grant to help serve Unaccompanied Children. As director, I was responsible for receiving, interpreting and implementing federal policy into practical outcomes.”
Well now, that may certainly give a bogus ‘Pastor’ a reason to fudge on the truth a bit. As Tooley sums up in his fake news story : May God Have Mercy On You.
This fake news lying ‘pastor’, Glenn Beck lookalike, couldn’t wait to get some national attention, and fake news spreader CNN couldn’t wait to have him on.
