Mat-Su conservatives to hold rally during feminist march on Saturday


    A group of Mat-Su feminists who are set to march through Palmer on Oct. 17 will likely meet a group of MAGA-hat-wearing conservative patriots who support Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee.

    Organizers of the Palmer March for Justice state that the Mat-Su event is being held in conjunction with the National Women’s march held in Washington, D.C. on the same day. The national group proudly supports defunding the nation’s police forces, expanding abortion, promoting LGBTQ sexuality and de-emphasizing the traditional nuclear family.

    The Palmer women’s march is organized by a group called Mat-Su Moms for Social Justice with the aim of condemning President Trump for nominating the pro-life Judge Amy Coney Barrett for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.

    “We want our senators to know that their constituents are against this decision and they should let the people decide,” a notice for the march states. Organizers will also promote other “social justice” messages including a get-out-the vote effort.

    Participants will gather at the Downtown Palmer Pavilion at 1 p.m. for speeches followed by a march through downtown Palmer.

    Mat-Su conservatives are planning to set up on the corner of the Palmer-Wasilla Highway and Glenn Highway near Fred Meyer and McDonalds in Palmer. They are encouraging people to bring MAGA hats, American flags and signs in support of Judge Barrett. The alternate takes place during the same time as the women’s march, between 1-3 p.m.

    1. I guess there are women in Palmer who are not satisfied with a normal life and want to be ‘part of the action’. The funny thing is that it is a group that calls itself Mat-Su Moms for Social Justice. They promote abortion, they want to oust Trump, they promote the LGBTQ lifestyle and want to minimize the traditional nuclear family. Right. I suppose the justice is meant for angry, selfish, immature, and confused people. Heaven help us all.

      • You are so right! How can you call yourself “moms” and be for abortion? Well I wonder if they are BLM Global supporters? Since BLM is only for some black lives not all black lives! Oh well you can’t fix stupid!

    2. Just a heads up, this is not a counter protest… this was planned before hand, its honestly just a coincidence… “This is Not a Protest!”
      This is a gathering for people who Love America, Love God, Love Alaska and Love our President! We want anyone who Loves being an American to show up and cheer!!!
      We have a lot to be thankful for… and for people who don’t know truth, we need to pray for them, that they will look for themselves and that God will open there eyes to the truth….
      We want only positive signs and attitudes please…. we want this to be Pro America and Pro God!

      And it also starts at 12:30 to whenever
      Thank you!

    3. Sad to see that Conservative Palmer is turning so blue.
      Please folks. Get out and Vote on November 3rd to prevent Alaska from turning blue. Blue will result in all of Alaska becoming like Anchorage, and worse yet, California all over. We cannit let that happen.

    4. It’s been brought to our attention by organizers that the conservative rally is not technically a “counter protest” but rather a simultaneous event to show support for America, Trump and his nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. The feminist women’s march, however, will highlight a litany of left-wing social justice causes with a primary focus on condemning Trump for nominating Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. Both events are happening at the same time.

    5. This is what is wrong with this country. To be able to say “ Mat-Su Moms for Social Justice with the aim of condemning President Trump for nominating the pro-life Judge Amy Coney Barrett“

      How can you condemn anyone for trying to preserve life? “Those horrible horrible pro life people. How dare they save lives?” That is so backwards
