    Alaska Trump supporters condemn violence and firmly stand by the president

    By AlaskaWatchman.com

    Trump supporters in Alaska held a rally in Anchorage on Jan. 10 where they both condemned the recent violence at the nation’s capital while expressing strong support for the president.

    Held just four days after Congress voted to approve the Electoral College votes and thereby officially certify Joe Biden as president-elect, several dozen Alaskans gathered in Midtown Anchorage.

    Organizer Theresa Streeter said she still has hope for Trump and the conservative movement despite the fact that Biden is scheduled to be inaugurated on Jan. 20. She repudiated the few protesters who broke into the nation’s Capitol Building on Jan. 6, but expressed strong support for the hundreds of thousands of peaceful marchers who flew into D.C. to support the president.

    “There are so many people who are aware and who are not going to believe the mainstream media putting that out there that Trump is this horrible person,” Streeter said while standing at the corner of Northern Lights and the New Seward Highway. “He’s done so much good for this country.”

    Like other attendees, Streeter has faith that Trump might still be able to pull out a victory in the final days before the Jan. 20 inauguration, although she wasn’t sure how this might happen at this point.

    In terms of the tiny percentage of protesters in D.C. who broke windows and assaulted police, she said that wasn’t at all indicative of Trump supporters.

    “We’re not okay with what happened on the capitol,” Streeter said. “We don’t condone anything they did. We are peaceful. We are out here, and people are happy.”

    “We are here to support our country,” she added. “We love this country. We love our law enforcement.”

    Streeter urged conservatives to stay strong in the weeks and months ahead.

    “We know something good is going to happen,” she said. “I’m going to keep praying … we’re not going to give up.”

    The Jan. 10 rally was the 13th Streeter has helped to organize in Anchorage. Patriotic music filled the air as participants held American flags, Trump signs and waved to passing traffic. Many of the commuters honked horns and gave thumbs up signs as they passed.

     Others at the rally agreed with many of Streeter’s points. One man from Eagle River, attending his first ever Trump rally, said he hopes the energy of the national conservative movement will trickle down to the local level.

    Two others from Anchorage said they did not condone the violence in D.C., and said conservatives are fundamentally “peaceful.” The added, however, that the people of Alaska need to step up and reclaim their liberties, both on the local and statewide level.

    1. That’s funny. 4 days ago there was this comment in the combox: “Michael S Totten January 7, 2021 At 4:42 pm

      We’re going to war no doubt now. This was just the dress rehearsal. No way they’re getting anybodies [sic] guns now. But the lead will be free.”

      So they’re all peaceful, eh?

        • And yet no one felt the need to respond to him then. There was also this gem: “FreeInSD January 7, 2021 At 7:14 pm

          Elections are compromised, there are no more peaceful solutions available. We either fight back or descend into communism.”

          Again, no opposition. For all the claims to avoid violence, there is little condemnation of it.
          o refute the call to arms.

          • I stand by what I said. The people who stole the election are the ones that removed the last remaining peaceful way to reform the system, not patriotic americans demanding an audit of widespread voter fraud.

            Do you have a better idea for reforming a system with corrupted elections? We’re all ears commie.

            • Ironically, Section 230, which trump wants to repeal, is a significant thing protecting Joel Davidson from being sued for comments like this.

              Section 230 says that “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”

              While I’ve been called a fascist for my prolife work, this is the first time I’ve been called a commie. Strange world.

            • Notice Steve does not answer my question and continues to claim that my comment about how non-violent options have been removed by the left is somehow violent itself. His kind will never be backed into a corner, they’ll just claim something new against you, baseless of course, and whatever suits them at a moment.

              They argue in bad faith, and aren’t worth talking to.

    2. The peaceful protest at the capitol was reported to have been prayerful. Before the protesters even arrived at the capitol while walking ANTIFA took the opportunity for a photo op. They had come earlier during and before our president was giving his speech to one million pray-ers. Those who invaded were dressed in both Trump supporter clothing and police officer clothing. There were 250 of them and the fake police removed the barricades and encouraged the people to enter the capitol. The “Viking” and other Antifa terrorists posed for a photo op on the capitol steps, and the trap was laid to blame our President. With Hollywood skills I watched with heartsickness as a BBC video showed a lie. Trump was supposedly organizing the move as if it was the Christians but it was ANTIFA. Because I am a “Mandolorian” fan and other modern movies like Return of the King by Tolkien, the graphics are such that people’s faces and bodies can be placed over others faces and bodies. That video was fake. Nothing about it matches his character. My sources are Victory Channel, Gary Bauer, Lance Roberts, the epochtimes.com, and others who were there. Be prepared to see images of our President and other key people on video but faked with the technology that now exists. On the last episode of Mandalorian Luke appeared. How did that happen?

      The capitol was breached by those trying to overthrow our government against Western Civilization, and our patriotic President has the power to respond to that attempted takeover.

      • And, today, I hear that the text messages of ANTIFA, and BLM have been secured. Those messages were inviting, and planning the violence, and providing training videos. They were also provided with accommodations. The whole idea for ANTIFA, and BLM to attend was to have the blame attached to the patriots, and Trump supporters. If you think that will be covered by the lamestream media, don’t hold your breath.

      • Ironically, Section 230, which trump wants to repeal, is a significant thing protecting Joel Davidson from being sued for comments like this.

        Section 230 says that “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”

      Yes section 230 protects the Watchman from thoughtless comments (even ones like yours). It could be rewritten.

      Notice that the Watchman lets your stupid comments and my stupid comments both stand. That’s not the issue. Fascistbook and the other leftist tech oligarchs only substantially delete content from the right. They are choosing the speech and censoring the speech unequally.

    4. Don’t believe the comments on this thread. A lot of people pretend to be trump supporters and are out there to just divide america Pray for God to let his will be done. Peace to all.
