Alaskans who gathered in Washington, D.C., for the Jan. 6 protest march, have created a Facebook page to share their reflections, videos and stories from a day that will certainly go down in chronicles of American history.

The page includes a number of contributors, including Alaska State House Rep. David Eastman, Alaska Right to Life Director Pat Martin and several others. Photos and comments largely show peaceful images of attendees waving flags, holding signs and listening to speakers in and around the National Mall. But there are also reflections on why the protesters attended the march in the first place and what they hoped it would accomplish.

Mark Delozier, of Valdez, wrote one of the longest posts, saying he felt a mix of “sadness, disgust, happiness and sorrow” from a day that was overwhelmingly peaceful, but then marked by a few protesters who violently broke into the Capital building.

“This morning when we arrived at the Washington Monument, we were amazed and overwhelmed with the enormous numbers of Patriots, so many that it made my eyes water from so many persons coming together for a common cause,” Delozier reflected. “They arrived from all over this great nation to peacefully voice their displeasure with our government, representatives, senators and even more importantly the mainstream media and social media.”

He said the goal was to demand election integrity and “complete impartial audits and transparent investigations into allegations of fraud and election irregularities.”

Delozier said he felt like the main message of ensuring election integrity, however, was drowned out by coverage of the much smaller group of protesters who broke into the halls of Congress. This happened shortly after Vice President Mike Pence announced that he would not unilaterally throw out challenged Electoral votes from key battleground states that experienced election irregularities and fraudulent activity.

“As we moved to the Capital at the time that our representatives were in session, we discovered our VP Pence screwed We the People and the Constitution, thus paving a clear path for zero audit and zero investigation into the allegations,” Delozier recounted.

At that point a group of people “stormed into the Capital” while most people remained outside and eventually “went home in an orderly fashion,” he recalled. But most of the news coverage drowned out the fundamental reason for the march in the first place, he lamented.

    The sources of information have a great impact on “feelings”.

    Man, I’m so disappointed with the establishment. I don’t know what to do. I want to “burn it down” figuratively of course… Obviously we need to clean house. Judges, assemblymen, legislators… Loyal patriots need to get in there and do the job of ensuring our laws are followed and the interests of our citizens come FIRST.

    • Lobomalo says:

      When ANTIFA, BLM, and other rioters were burning, and looting, it was “mostly peaceful protests”, as reported by the lamestream media, and democrats… When the patriot citizens came to Washington to protest the fraud, it was criminal, terrorist protesters.

    I know President Trump never meant for his words to create havoc. We know that he tried to return our country back to a sovereign nation. We know China has infiltrated our government and bought many in office. We know that Obama has been behind the scenes all along. We have seen innocent men go to prison but many who are guilty protected. .We know that what ever comes he will be the only President who was not bought by the political establishment. He fought a good fight . Let them say what they want. In the end God will judge the hearts of all . God is with him. I pray that he and his family will know that they are loved very much and pray for their protection that comes from God alone. He has done his best. He has been abandoned by everyone but God. God loves President Donald J Trump. America will pass away one day. There will only remain one kingdom. The kingdom of God …Jesus is Lord! one day everyone will kneel to him alone.

    America was betrayed from within now we have the soul of America ripped out once again by the corrupt government you have a man who is practically brain dead and is guilty of rapping his own daughter taking the highest seat in the land a women that gave sexual acts for her entrance into politics and is unconstitutionally eligible to hold the office. The incident in the capital was staged so the rest of your treasonous politicians had an excuse not to stand by the people’s choice. I pray GOD Almighty brings his hand of judgment to this nation for its sins we deserv it for allowing g it to happen!
