RALEIGH – There has been a surplus of nonsense in recent weeks; replete with a surplus anti-police protests, riots, and rhetoric. This weekend in the City of Oaks, however, was a rally with the opposite ethos. The ‘Back the Blue Rally’ to defend the police drew quite a patriotic, appreciative, and, wouldn’t you know it, NON-VIOLENT crowd this weekend in Raleigh.
The Facebook group sports over 41,000 members as more and more people stand up for law enforcement against the rising tide of Woke anti-police cultural movements in cities across the country. But while following a page on social media is relatively easy, a great many of those members turned out on Saturday to demonstrate their commitment to common sense law and order and their support and appreciation for law enforcement.
And those that couldn’t make the trip to Raleigh, showed their support from home.
Isn’t that refreshing? To see such a nice turnout for a nice event that rests on a foundation of building people and communities up, instead of tearing buildings and the pillars of community down.
This is a majority of people in North Carolina, and around the country, that support the police. We’re happy that message was sent loud and clear Saturday for all the men and women that serve who have been subjected to extraordinary pressures every time they start a shift, let alone the during the most radical anti-police movements in recent history.
And it shouldn’t end there; Back the Blue as much as they back you, and your community, everyday; Leave no room for the Woke Warriors calling to defund the police to gain a foothold in the American conscience; make sure your local men and women of law enforcement don’t have to wonder if their job is worth the trouble; and, whenever the opportunity presents itself, DEFEND the police, law and order, and the American way.
