Boat Wars: Lake Hopatcong to host showdown between Trumpers, Anti-Trumpers in Boats on the Lake


LAKE HOPATCONG, NJ –  On Saturday a schedule Trump boat parade on New Jersey’s largest inland lake, Lake Hopatcong could be the scene of something ugly as a counter boat rally has been scheduled to protest the trump boat parade.

The Pro-Trump boat parade is being hosted by the Sussex County Republican Party and is scheduled to kick off at 11 am at the mouth of Byram Bay.

“It’s time for a parade…A Boat Parade in support of President Trump. More details to follow, but the plan is to meet at the mouth of Byram Bay – Main Lake side – and we will follow the shoreline to the state park and back around the main lake to the starting point,” the party said. “Bring your vessel decked out with American flags, Trump flags, patriotic gear. Patriotic clothing encouraged. Please share.”

There’s just one problem.  Anti-Trump boaters are also going to host a parade to counter the Trump parade.

“No Hate On Our Lake” is asking Trump haters to ride alongside Trump supporters as they run their parade route.

“We will run alongside the Trump supporters and demonstrate that our community doesn’t stand for hate,” the counter-rally organizers announced. “For those of you without boats, please gather at the River Styx Bridge in Hopatcong to share your voice.  Please bring signs, pro-Biden and other anti-Trump items. This protest will be peaceful and safe.”

Well, sounds like a fun time, let’s wait for the social media video to start rolling in and see what happens.
