    I was there and couldn't be more proud of everyone.

    I saw the .50 guy, the guillotine, a Hong Kong flag, rooftop snipers, folks dressed as revolutionary soldiers, armored cars, elected officials... and lots of people of all races, religions, creeds and orientations coming together in the most polite, civil show of unity I've ever had the privilege to be a part of. Everyone was friendly, cordial and professional.

    Seeing folks peeling stickers off of the streets to leave the place better than we found it was heartening. The media doesn't know what to make of any of it.

    Shame on Northam for trying to bait us and for pushing the 'emergency' narrative, and a great big thanks to everyone who worked to show that demanding our civil rights has nothing to do with race or hate.

    The fight is a long way from over, but I'm calling this one a sound victory.

    Keep up the pressure and the good work. Another great big thanks to the VCDL for organizing, they did a lot of incredible work especially with the last minute changes they had to navigate.

    These sorts of images and the video ruin the "white supremacist rally" spin used right up to the morning.

    I want to say thank you also hopefully it changes some minds and votes in Virginia and hopefully it inspires the same in other states and nationally should such potential laws be proposed.

    I admit I was a bit worried being that passion and tensions are high on both sides that a shot going off by accident or if tempers flared , that it would have had a negative impact but I was proven wrong and I am glad to say so.

    I was also worried that it being MLK day some with a agenda nothing to do with the 2nd amendment might show up, but the opposite happened and I am taking special gratification that David Hogg and many in the media was once again proven to be the clown that he and they are when he posted this....

    And this is a clear proof how thankfully now that we have widespread internet, with many social media, forums and alternative news channels compared to 1992 when Clinton was pushing the AWB and all there was was, newspapers and mainstream channel TV with cable news who catered to pushing the AWB and only showed what they wanted people to see from their slanted and biased position.

    My friends lol, once in a while I do lurk to read and see what the other side says. Interestingly on Monday some lib progressives complained that the media was showing us and not the impeachment affair and they accused the media of being biased...lol

    They also not surprisingly focused on " militias " and "hate" and it being "terrorist" rally as their description. Read for your amusement but don't bother trying to post there or reply not worth the effort.

    Their self-discipline was impressive.
    Remember the song "Dirty Laundry" by Don Henley, about the mainstream media's appetite for blood and dead bodies? Peaceful people never make "very good copy".

    Image the disappointment when it did not happen, and possibly also thanks to whoever intercepted a few troublemakers from Canada etc.

    MSM is claiming 26K, and showing really lousy shots which make it look poorly attended. Some of the
    streets leading up to the Concentration Camp fencing were packed, 3 blocks back, wall to wall. None of the
    media showed shots of the huge crowds of diverse people, all getting along like it was a church BBQ.
    Most of the stream shots showed white guys tac'ed out, with AR15s, and web gear, while they were there, much
    of the crowd had no rifles.

    Peaceful and calm just isn’t enough news, so the media does what it can.

    I don't think that it was merely a sleeping dog they woke up but rather a Wolverine. People with loud mouths and seemingly little intelligence SHOULD know better than do something like this! Alas they succumbed to the little, big dog syndrome and can't stop the continuous yapping.:D

    A little push back will never hurt our cause.

    This one from CNN is hilarious because the talking head in the studio follows the "white supremacist" "violence" theme and it just falls completely apart with the reporter in the street.

    My brother lives in Richmond so I flew down from Maine to attend. It was indeed awesome. Didn't see the 50 Cal guy, but did see an attendee with an M1 Garand and fixed bayonet.

    I saw him, too. In a crowd of tacticool ARs and hip-riding pistols (neither of which I have a problem with), the Garand definitely stood out!

    Some of the responses were priceless in that Twitter feed. It's pretty frightening to see the level of outright ignorance, hate, and insanity by those on the left. They continue to claim this was nothing but a rally of white supremacists despite multiple people posting photos and videos of folks of all colors that were present and not only protesting, but being welcomed and embraced by the "white supremacists". The level of complete denial on display by the left is truly alarming.

    I would never watch CNN but that clip was indeed hilarious. Standing amidst a crowd of thousands of people yet all you hear in the background is quiet conversation.

    It could have been a cocktail party. Without any cocktails.

    The media controllers say "white" like it is a curse word.

    Those that attended the VA event did us proud, and very much so. Unfortunately, the story will quickly die in the MSM. It was large, non-violent, and people picked up their trash when they were done. What's to report?

    What's to report is how WRONG the Media and the Governor were, and how the attendees are due an apology, for being slandered, irresponsibly.
    The MSM and Bloomberg's Lapdog aren't very big on admitting they are ever wrong, or apologizing.

    ...they're far too busy licking billionaire's boots, for that...

    They want to bury any truth that does not fit their precious narrative.
