But as The Washington Post points out, there perhaps is another reason for Trump’s plan to address his remaining minions on Aug. 27, 2020, in Jacksonville, over the various other cities in contention.

That date is the 60th anniversary of one of the most notorious incidents of the civil rights era. On Aug. 27, 1960, in Jacksonville, a mob of white rioters organized by the Ku Klux Klan chased and attacked civil rights demonstrators with ax handles and baseball bats, an attack now known as Ax Handle Saturday. Coincidence? The Trump White House has long sailed past the boundaries of what could charitably be labeled coincidence.

Indeed, we’re getting a clear pattern from the openly white nationalist White House. Trump’s first large pandemic-era rally, Trump announced at the White House, would be in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the site of the 1921 massacre of Black Americans and the burning of Black Wall Street, and would take place on Juneteeth, the date the last former slaves were told of their freedom after the Civil War.
