On a beautiful Saturday morning, on November 14, 2020, seven suburban women and one man began their hopeful trek from Chester County to Washington, DC. Some of them were meeting each other for the first time, now allied by a common goal – to show their love for President Donald Trump and let their voices be heard above the false narratives, questionable election practices, and intimidation from the Left.
Filling two cars, the eight patriots discussed the positive impact that President Trump has had on our economy, prison reform, deregulation, revitalized military, and renegotiation of bad international trade deals. They shared how they felt their voices had been silenced at work, in public places, on social media, and by the “fake news” media. It was cathartic to be able to speak out loud about how much they appreciated this great man.
Exiting their cars at the train station in Maryland, most of the group felt compelled to hide their MAGA hats, flags and banners. Some had a lingering fear of confrontation with “haters.”
Let Freedom Ring
They continued their conversation on the train, arriving at the Freedom Plaza station. As they ascended the escalator to Pennsylvania Avenue, they felt the warmth of the sun and a growing excitement at seeing the sea of red hats, waving flags, and broad smiles of their fellow American Patriots. No longer fearful, the Chester County Eight put on their MAGA hats, unfolded their Trump/Pence flags and banners and joined the peaceful, joyful crowd moving towards Freedom Plaza.
Along the way, the band of eight met travelers from California, Georgia, Ohio, Nevada and many other states representing diverse cultures, religious affiliations, and ethnicities. The dedication and passion that empowered so many to come from all parts of the country was impressive. All of this for President Donald Trump. The crowd would alternate between singing the national anthem and chanting “Stop the Steal” and “Trump, Trump, Trump.” At Freedom Plaza they were inspired by the multiple speakers who demanded investigations and recounts in the states that had questionable behaviors and election results. They detailed the many successes the Trump Administration. The list was long.
Love Overshadows Hate
As the crowd began the 30-minute walk to the Supreme Court, the group from Chester County was struck by the endless ocean of Trump supporters climbing the sloping street before them. Looking behind, they were equally in awe when the saw the massive crowd of Patriots behind them. They determined that, in fact, there were hundreds of thousands who came out to support our President and our Democracy – not “thousands” as the news media claimed.
Hate was met with love when the crowd of Trump supporters began chanting, “We love everyone. We love everyone,” to a sole agitator, dressed in black, who spewed hate from a megaphone.
The positive feelings of hope, fellowship and support from the massive crowd was uplifting. This was further proof that when it comes to Trump supporters – “Love lives here.” Their united energy seemed to create a forcefield which protected the Maga Marchers all the way to the Supreme Court grounds. Their spirit was impenetrable, despite more than 4 years of attacks, lies, threats, and hate from the Left and their media puppets.
The Silenced Majority – No More
The team from Chester County joined the massive crowd gathered in front of the Supreme Court. They were there to protest the stolen election, the news media, and the censorship from the liberal cancel culture. They listened to Conservative voices uncensored by Big Tech and “Hate News.” They called for justice in an election marred with suspicion, fraud and cheating. They believed the stolen election was designed to erase Conservative voices and votes. They had had enough. “We the people” were reclaiming their voice.
When the speakers were finished, the crowd made their way back to Freedom Plaza and their means of transportation. A few Trump supporters who separated from the pack down a side street, were harassed and attacked by the radical left and Antifa thugs. Dozens of police vehicles made their way to quickly intercede.
The group from Chester County returned to the train station unscathed. Empowered by the day, the Chester County Eight now wore their Trump Hats and buttons on the train ride back. They no longer felt silenced, at least for that day.
Their collective hope was that their spoken truths would not fall on deaf ears. We all know how that turned out.
The “Hate News” media and certain Left-wing politicians called this large gathering of good-hearted Conservatives some pretty awful things, not worth repeating.
Antifa and radical agitators (let’s call them criminals) came out after dark to attack again. The media embraced them.
Yet, just as love lives in the heart of these patriots, so does hope – to keep America great!
