At such a difficult time in America’s history when the mainstream media is trying its best to divide the nation based on race and politics, thank God for those who have the faith and strength to attempt to bring all Americans together.
On Saturday, October 10, hundreds of people across all ethnic groups and from various walks of life gathered to express their support for America’s law enforcement community. Several speakers, including Cadance Owens, the founder of the BLEXIT movement, addressed the crowd.
And in the first public appearance since being released from the Walter Reed Medical Center, President Trump made a brief rally-style speech on the White House’s South Lawn. Following the president’s address, the Back the Blue supporters marched peacefully through the streets of DC.
Demonstrators waved pro-law enforcement banners as well as US flags and chanted pro-Trump and pro-American slogans. Many of the supporters wore matching Back the Blue T-shirts as well as the iconic “Make America Great Again” hats.
As the event was coming to an end, the march’s leader led the crowd in a rousing singalong of the Star-Spangled Banner. The atmosphere was joyous, and there were no reports of any violent incidences.
Candace Owens, a black woman, is frequently vilified by the intersectional left. Her crime seems to simply be thinking for herself, and realizing the plain truth that black Americans can vote for whoever they want. No one — regardless or race, ethnicity, or religious orientation — is beholden to any political party. She works alongside Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA, which typically does speaking events on college campuses.
Here is some smartphone-captured footage of the event. In it, you’ll see Candace address the crowd — packed with people the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know exist.
