Local Durham Girl To Speak At The Defeat The Mandates Rally in Washington DC
A local Durham girl, who is tired of seeing her classmates radicalized by the media and worried about the COVID vaccine side effects her classmates are suffering from, is taking matters into her own hands by speaking this weekend in Washington DC at the Defeat The Mandates rally.
Ashlyn Monahan will be one of thousands of people that will be attending the rally to protest the unconstitutional infringement on all Americans, but one of the few that has volunteered to speak at the event.
Ashlyn Monahan To Speak At Defeat The Mandates Rally
We commend our brave North Carolinians that aren’t afraid to defend their rights and the rights of all Americans.
Calls to end vaccine mandates
Protest organizers said mandates are un-American and called for an end to mass firings, “segregating” and calling Americans unpatriotic over vaccine status on the event’s website.
The website puts an emphasis on advocating for protecting freedom and both vaccinated and unvaccinated people marching in “peace.”
Sunday’s Events Recap
Protesters began marching at 11:30 a.m. from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial. The event website encourages those marching to stop at the war memorials on the route to “remember those who have sacrificed lives and loved ones so that America might be free.”
At noon, a variety of people gave speeches or performed including some in the entertainment industry, athletes, doctors and journalists.
Among the speakers was Paul Alexander, a health researcher and former Trump administration official. He said liability protections for vaccine companies should be dropped.
“If they want your child to take any of these vaccines, you stand up and say, remove liability protection,” Alexander said.
Dr. Pierre Cory with the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance spoke in favor of early treatment.
“They tell us to vaccinate ourselves endlessly and boost ourselves, even though that single strategy has failed, is failing and will continue to fail,” Cory said.
Thousands of people traveled from across the country for Sunday’s march and carried signs that say messages like “we will not comply.”
Jeffrey and his brother traveled from Pennsylvania for the rally.
“If we follow the lines that we’re following today, we’re going back to a feudal two-class system,” said Jeffrey. “We have to break the line somewhere and America is the country where it can happen.”
Republicans weren’t the only ones at the protest, one man carried a sign reading “Vaxxed Democrat for medical freedom.”
“Left and right whatever a spectrum is, we can’t be forced to inject ourselves or our kids with something like this,” the protestor said.
Leading up to the protest
The event will take place about a week after D.C. instituted a vaccine mandate that requires patrons 12 and older to have at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to enter many indoor venues, including restaurants, bars and gyms.
The protest was announced by Dr. Robert Malone on Joe Rogan’s podcast at the end of December. Recently, Malone was banned from Twitter after sharing how many people were being injured and dying from the vaccines to his hundreds of thousands of followers, according to PolitiFact.
Malone is the inventor of mRNA vaccine technology and claimed to have sent the Food and Drug Administration proof that the spike protein in COVID-19 vaccines is dangerous.
Though the march in D.C. is the main event, some people on the event’s Facebook page are encouraging those who can’t make it to march in their own state capitals.
