Biden Vehicle Parade Draws Much Fewer Numbers Than President Trumps

A Biden/Harris vehicle parade drove through Spring Valley Lake on November 1.

On November 1, approximately 30 vehicles met at the park and ride on Bear Valley Road and Amargosa, to participate in a Biden/Harris vehicle parade. The caravan of vehicles drove to Spring Valley Lake and back. The turnout was much smaller than the previous weeks Trump vehicle parade that was estimated to have as many as 350 vehicles.

Seta Ghazarian is a teacher and member of the High Desert Progressive Democrats, a chartered democratic club. She helped organize the vehicle parade. Her hope is it will show that there are democrats in the High Desert that support Biden and that are against this republican party that is “very far removed from what they claim are their ideals”. During this election cycle the democratic objective is “to turn out the vote in large numbers”.

During the drive, a man opposed to the parade backed out of his driveway and into the procession in an aggressive manner and slowed to a crawl. Bruce McGhee says that this was an attempt at intimidation and an attempt to separate the parade. As a veteran who served 20 years and after seeing the extreme actions supporters of the President took in Texas in attempting to stop a campaign bus, McGhee says that his supporters “have lost all decency.” “That’s the action of the very things we fought against.”

Kareema Abdul-Khaif is a former teacher and a current census worker. She also helped organize the event. She believes the President is inciting violence from his supporters. “He tweeted good job Texas” after the incident involving a Democratic campaign bus.

Due to incidents like these, the High Desert Progressive Democrats purposely did not post their route in advance. Several people who wanted to participate in the parade also chose not to because of fears of violence according to Ghazarian.
