Over 100,000 Americans Will March on Washington This Friday

Published

on

The world’s largest pro-life gathering is set to take place in Washington, D.C this Friday, January 18th.

The March for Life takes place every year on the National Mall where pro-lifers from all over the country and world come to march on the Capitol to end legal abortion. In 2018, over 100,000 people attended to show that women deserve better than abortion. Also in 2018, Donald Trump made history by being the first President to speak at the March for Life – making him our most pro-life president yet.

What was intended to be a one-time event in 1974, has reoccured every year since and will continue to do so until Roe v. Wade is overturned, according to the website. With the mission to “End abortion by uniting, educating, and mobilizing pro-life people in the public square”, the March for Life is held close to Sanctity of Human Life Day – which falls on January 22, 2019 this year – to show Members of Congress that the American people value life in the womb.

Speakers at the March for Life this year include Ben Shapiro, Abby Johnson, and Alveda King, amongst many others. The March also plans to host bipartisan speakers like Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL), Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), and State Rep. Katrina Jackson (D-LA).

The March for Life also hosts a conference the day before march “designed to provide marchers with in-depth education on the yearly theme”. While the conference is sold-out, speakers will be streamed via Facebook Live.

SICK: American Icon Plymouth Rock Vandalized, Spray-Painted in Massachusetts

It’s likely the vandalism is an anti-American hate crime.

Published

on

An icon of American heritage and civilization, Plymouth Rock, was found vandalized and spray-painted upon Monday morning by criminals at its namesake in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Plymouth Rock symbolizes the first arrival of the pilgrims from England in North America in 1620 A.D. The vandalism was found just weeks before a ceremony intended to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the pilgrim’s arrival in Massachusetts.

The large boulder is marked with the characters ‘1620’ to symbolize the pilgrims’ arrival. The rock was the first sight of those who disembarked from the Mayflower in the New World.

It’s unclear what the red spray-paint on the rock is intended to convey, but there’s a strong possibility the vandalism is motivated by hatred towards the icon of American culture.

In addition to the rock, the spray-paint vandals also targeted a nearby statue intended to commemorate the first pilgrims to arrive in North America.

It’s also noteworthy that the vandalism was found on President’s Day, suggesting a further possibility of anti-American hatred as a motivation.

400th anniversary celebrations of the pilgrims’ arrival are scheduled for April, and to this day are a point of pride for many of their descendants who live in Massachusetts.

The director of a Plymouth cultural and tourism agency, Lea Filson, expressed her disappointment to see the icon of America so disrespected.

“Seeing this type of disrespect for the historic reminders of the Mayflower story is both sad and unsettling. The outpouring of concern and anger over the incident has been a positive ending to a thoughtless gesture.”

The town of Plymouth has already removed the vandalism from the rock, and local police are investigating to locate the culprits.
