Today a 2nd Amendment rally organized by the Virginia Knights, took place today outside the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond, Virginia. A crowd of about 200 people attended the rally, over half of whom were Propertarians. Other groups represented were Boogaloo Boys, and Black Lives Matter. BLM was in fact attending the protest in support of 2nd Amendment rights.
Common themes from the speakers prior to the Propertarian takeover were police brutality, racial unity, no knock warrants, enforcement of unConstitutional laws, and anti-Police rhetoric. Speakers from BLM also emphasised that the mainstream media and elites want to keep the people divided and even cause blood baths. All speakers encouraged peaceful protesting. No ideological or pragmatic solutions were offered until The Supreme Leader of the Propertarians, Curt Doolittle, began a speech about adherence to Natural Law, Sovereignty, and truth.
The event remained relatively peaceful, until tensions flared during Curt Doolittle’s speech. Evidently his emphasis on preserving Western Civilization and the rule of law was interpreted by the Boogaloo Boys and BLM as White Supremacy, despite there being no racial rhetoric spoken. After shouting for a few minutes, and being completely ignored by the Propertarians, tensions died down and everything returned to normal. Curt Doolittle’s speech was the most energetic and well received. There were also apparent plants, either Feds or Whig Nats, not associated with the Propertarians who shouted some racial rhetoric and were swiftly removed by the event organizers. They were denounced by both the Propertarians and Virginia Knights.
Black Lives Matter leader of local 757, Aubrey Jones, shared with Saints Edward Media that he was attending to “dispel some of the myths about Black Lives Matter.” Evidently destroying things in the streets isn’t “all that we do.” When asked he also seemingly disavowed the National BLM platform on destroying the nuclear family, and said “Shaun King and them kind of do their own thing, they don’t represent us here.” He went on to describe some of their local charity work, and that their mission is to make Black Lives Matter because, “all lives don’t matter until Black lives matter first.” If what he says is true, there is an interesting disconnect between the national agenda and boots on the ground at the local level. Perhaps the majority of the protestors aren’t all trained Marxists, but rather well meaning people being manipulated.
