The “We the People Reunion,” a conservative rally featuring several prominent allies and conspiracy theorists in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, expected a huge showing of supporters, but that’s not what happened. According to KFIE, 10,000 attendees were expected over the weekend, but instead, less than 300 were in attendance when local journalists attempted to cover the proceedings.
The event was held at the Muhlenberg County Agriculture & Convention Center Fairgrounds in Powderly, Kentucky, on Friday and Saturday. Featured speakers included MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, retired General Michael Flynn, attorney Lin Wood, Candace Owens, and Pastor Greg Locke, who has in the past admitted to being at the Capitol during the January 6 Capitol riot, the outlet reports.
The outlet reports that they were allowed in the parking lot to shoot some video but said that they were later asked to leave the fairgrounds. There was no explanation as to why they were told to leave the premises.
The We The People’s event description reads that it will be the “biggest rally of the year.”

Pastor Locke seems a bit upset.
What a LIE!! They never said a thing about 10,000. They sold over 1,200 tickets. That’s exactly what they expected and that’s exactly how many people showed up. Stop being such ignorantly blind media followers.

The most notable names pushing former President Donald Trump’s big lie of widespread voter fraud that didn’t take place failed to bring in much of a crowd. Trump has claimed that the election was stolen from him after President Joe Biden whooped his ass in both the electoral and popular vote. The only people that think the November election was rigged are the most ardent supporters of the twice-impeached one-term president. Mike Lindell is being sued for propagating this lie, as is Rudy Giuliani and Kraken lawyer Sydney Powell. What a hot mess. And that lie, of course, led to the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection.
