AUSTIN, Tex. (INTELLIHUB) — Patriots, Trump supporters, pro-gunners, and activists all rallied at Woodridge Park Saturday morning for the “Austin 1776 Freedom March” to celebrate Americas independence and exceptionalism.
Guest speakers Joe “Rambo” Biggs, Augustus Invictus, the Black Rebel, and other prominent activists spoke to an energetic crowd of attendees before leading a march to the Capitol building which garnered a major turnout.
“This is not about some distant past, this is about our survival here and now,” guest speaker and activist Augustus Invictus said to the crowd. “This is about our country, our land, and our families.”
Invictus said that our Founding Fathers “were not messing around with barbecues on the Forth of July” but were rather signing a ‘high treasonous document that declared independence from their government.”
Police presence was heavy all the way through the event as bicycle cops, patrol cars, and helicopters circled the downtown area in droves.
Marchers moved through the streets at a fast stride, chanting: “Build that wall, build that wall […].”
One protester’s sign read: “CNN is ISIS.”
Even a dog named “Trump” participated in the march and showed great spirit.
A few police in cars and on motorcycles led the way for activists as they neared their destination.
Once activists reached the Capitol they gathered at the steps as Joe Biggs and others spoke to the crowd with a megaphone.
Speaking to former members of the Armed Forces, U.S. Army (82nd) Staff Sergeant Joe Biggs, told the crowd: “You have got to go out under the mindset that you could be attacked for your beliefs.”
Are you going to be a victim […] or are you going to train?” Biggs asked the audience.
“We’re trained, we’re armed, we’re vigilant, we know what the hell is going on — and have got to stay like that every fu*kin’ day,” he said. […] these people will sucker punch you.”
Capitol security took no chances and posted armed guards at the entrances while the police helicopter circled at 300 feet above-ground-level.
