Irony? Protestors call to shut down ‘fascist’ Back the Blue rally in CT featuring Rep. Greene and LET spokesman

Share:

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.

PLAINFIELD, CT – Plainfield, Connecticut will soon be host to featured speaker Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) at an America First Rally that promises to connect thousands of patriots through a family-friendly, entertaining gathering.

And of course as soon as word started spreading about the huge event, “activists” took to social media and started emailing Law Enforcement Today saying that the “fascists” behind the pro-police event needed to be shut down.

Obviously the irony of trying to silence the speakers is lost on these “activists”.

Rep. Greene
 

The Connecticut-based Quinebaug Citizens Alliance will be presenting this event on Saturday, October 23, from 2pm to 5pm at K&H Construction in Plainfield.

Quinebaug Citizens Alliance (QCA) is a close-knit community of like-minded patriots who describe their group on Facebook as:

“Valuing life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

“We as an organization hope to educate and enlighten communities on our rights as Americans.”

Dawn Mattos, QCA member and rally organizer, told us that this freedom-oriented group crosses all demographic and political lines.  Members work closely together on mutual interests such as prepping and survival skills, education about American history and Constitutionally-protected freedoms, and gun safety and responsible gun ownership.

She told us:

“It’s really become more like a family…. It’s been a blessing.  It’s a place that you can go and be with like-minded people.

“It’s not politically affiliated.  We have Democrats, we have Libertarians, we have Republicans, all different types of people from different backgrounds.  We all contribute to whatever our needs are.”

 

It is this sense of community – and family – that the QCA is seeking to share with fellow patriots in their upcoming America First rally in partnership with Law Enforcement Today and Rep. Greene, who are pushing the “re-fund the police” movement across America.

Mattos and the QCA connected with Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene through Kyle Reyes, National Spokesman for Law Enforcement Today, and Kevin Skulczyck, host of the Kevin Alan Show, a news podcast available for viewing on Law Enforcement Today’s LET Unity.

Mattos told us she was delighted to hear of Greene’s plans to visit Connecticut, and she was likewise delighted to plan a rally accordingly.  

She added:

“I was so excited, because the energy she brings is just amazing.  

“She is real, sometimes raw, and she definitely, just like Trump, knows how to get a crowd going.  You know her heart’s in it.  She’s got skin in the game.”

Although the rally does indeed carry a star-studded status, given its featured speaker Congresswoman Greene, Mattos made sure to emphasize the down-to-earth nature of this event, which focuses on We the People.

She told us:

“For me, as excited as I am about the Congresswoman, I tell everybody, it’s a rally for the people with a sprinkle of politicians….

“We have a lot of speakers that are advocates, and we hope we touched on everybody’s needs.

“We’ll have two pastors coming, we have addiction and recovery resources coming, we have something for everybody.  It’s about the people.

“I’m hoping I did a good job selecting a speaker that can either move somebody to get involved in the community, or maybe run for an open seat in their town, or just simply be with other like-minded people.”

This free, family-friendly event will also feature concessions and vendors, live entertainment, and an entire section devoted to children.  Safety and security will be paramount, with emergency responders slated to be present to serve their community as always.

The location of the rally, K&H Construction in Plainfield, was generously provided by QCA’s originator and Plainfield Police Commissioner Joseph Sangermano.

In addition to featured speaker Marjorie Taylor Greene, Law Enforcement Today’s National Spokesman Kyle Reyes will also lend his voice to the proceedings. 

Reyes echoed Mattos’ and the QCA’s goal of bringing people together, saying:

“The beauty of America – or at least the America that I sincerely hope still exists – is that we can find unity in civil discourse.  

“We can find patriotism in freedom of expression.  

“And we can find brotherhood in the idea that we all fight every single day for a country for our children and grandchildren that’s even better than the one we grew up in.”

Also featured will be the Kevin Alan Show’s Kevin Skulczyck, who noted that the rally also supports those who protect and serve, and, like Reyes, also echoed Mattos’ sentiments on a community feel in a rally that transcends political lines.

He told us:

“It’s a gathering of Americans who have a great pride and feel patriotism is important.  Also, we back the blue.  I want to say that the newest Back the Blue campaign is Law Enforcement Today’s Re-Fund the Police.

“I’ve reached out to people who don’t support this kind of event, and I’ve asked them to be my guest.”

He continued: 

“When we talk about Republicans versus Democrats, it’s not that.  

“It’s American pride, getting together in a fall festival, and having this amazing energy in Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is really doing something in this country.”

 

Also speaking will be Pietro Camardella, who hosts the Rocky Radio Show on Connecticut’s 94.9.  A legal immigrant from Italy, Camardella will be sharing his immigration story and discussing legal immigration and his knowledge of Communism.

Additional speakers will include:

 – Kate Prokop, founder and president of CTRAMM (Connecticut Residents Against Mask Mandates)

– Cait Corrigan, founder of Students Against Mandates

Tricia Lindsay, civil rights attorney

– Pastor Ollie Gray

– Pastor Dr. Aaron Lewis

– Nikki Sambitsky, head of Connecticut Citizens Election Overwatch

– Anne Manusky, president of the Connecticut Republican Assembly.

Mattos stressed that all are welcome, including dissenting voices.  There will be a separate area set aside for protestors, who are welcome to exercise their First Amendment rights as long as they do so safely and without harm to others.

She added:

“I would like people to come with an open mind.  

“So, people that maybe for whatever reason they don’t like Marjorie, or they have a different opinion of the Republican party, I would like people to come with an open mind and just see what it’s about.  

“I just think that everybody can get something out of it.”

Please join Marjorie Taylor Greene, Kyle Reyes, Kevin Skulczyck, and the other speakers, as well as thousands of other patriots, on Saturday, October 23 from 12pm to 5pm at:

K&H Construction

1221 Norwich Road

Plainfield, CT  06374.

A private after-hours VIP reception with Rep. Greene and Reyes will also take place.  For more information on how to attend, click here.

“Re-Fund the Police”: Law Enforcement Today launches nationwide campaign for Americans to back the blue

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – You back the Blue.  You support the police.  You quietly buy an officer a cup of coffee at your local coffeehouse.  You bring homemade cookies to your local police station.  You make it a point to thank an officer when you see one out in public.  

You watch the news, aghast to see crowds of anti-police protesters and rioters committing acts of violence and massive property damage.  You pray daily for the Blue family.

And yet, you may feel quite alone.

Politicians and the mainstream news media would have you think that police support is at an all-time low.

Some of you may have found it necessary to take down your Thin Blue Line flags from your house, or to scrape off the Thin Blue Line sticker from your vehicles, due to the potential for violent retaliation by those who hate the police.

Yes, it is the loudest voices that are the ugliest.  They revile and attack those who back the Blue.  They call, “Defund the Police!” at every turn, fueled by the lie that police officers are racists who are out to kill.

But you are actually in excellent company in your support of the blue family.

According to a Gallup poll, 85% of Americans support law enforcement.  That means supporters of the Thin Blue Line are 285 million strong.

85% of Americans support Law Enforcement

That would be 285 million who, like you, refuse join in the calls to defund the police.

And that means you are in the company of those who have logic and reason on their side.

After all, we at Law Enforcement Today bring you stories daily of exploding crime in police-defunded areas such as Austin, Portland,  New York City, or Los Angeles.

Homicide rates since defunding are up 58% in Atlanta, up 533% in Portland, and up 37% in Philadelphia.

Shootings in post-defunded New York City are up 64%, and they are up 51% in Los Angeles and up 18% in Chicago.

In addition, you have also followed our disturbing and often tragic stories of attacks on police officers in the era of police defunding.

Felonious attacks on police are on the rise, as documented by the FBI’s Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA) Data Collection.  

According to LEOKA:

“The 50 law enforcement officers feloniously killed in the first 8 months of 2021 represent a 51.5 percent increase compared to the 33 officers killed during the same period in 2020.”

370 officers gave their lives in the line of duty in 2020

Also thanks to defunding, police departments across the country now lack training, resources, and equipment.  Ironically, calls for additional training in cultural awareness, de-escalation, and use of force often have to go unheeded due to the lack of financial resources.

Another irony is that the push to do away with less-lethal options such as Tasers and tear gas will simply lead to more fatal police shootings.

These alarming stories and statistics indicate beyond a doubt that defunding the police is absolutely the wrong move for this great country.  You know this, yet you and 285 million other voices are all too often silenced by social pressures as well as physical threats of violence.  

You are even told, “Silence is violence,” when it comes to refusing to stand against law enforcement.

Your voice matters, and you need to be heard.

As Law Enforcement Today National Spokesman Kyle Reyes points out:

“Americans have stood by in disbelief as this ‘defund the police’ movement has spread across America and ravaged our communities.  

“We’ve watched our cities burn, our officers be attacked and violence skyrocket.  

“It’s time to come out of the twilight zone.  It’s time to fight back.”

LET Unity

Law Enforcement Today, the nation’s largest police-owned media outlet, has developed a way to make your voice heard and oppose those who would seek to remove funding from those who protect and serve.

It’s called the “Re-Fund the Police” campaign.

Reyes explains:

“We wanted to make the “Re-fund the Police” campaign something that everyone- whether you can spare $1 or $1 million – can be a part of.

“People will donate to politicians all day long in hopes that person will get elected and possibly make a difference.

“We are asking for people to come forward and support those who make a difference and save lives every single day.”

Through your generous donations, Law Enforcement today will direct a media and advertising blitz to rally other Americans who, like you, are done with attacks on law enforcement, both physical and financial.  

Here’s what the funds go towards:

  1. We’ve assembled a “strike team” of researchers and reporters who will delve deeply into the devastating impact that defunding the police has on communities and families.  They’re going after not just the “leaders” in Congress who are pushing to defund the police… but they’re exposing everyone from the local politicians and city councils who are behind it.  They’re also tracing the money of exactly who is funding this “defund the police” movement.
  2.  We will focus on publicizing all the negative effects of defunding police while expressing support for our brothers and sisters in blue.  The advertising blitz will be a show of support for police officers all across America.
 

In addition, we will be sending a team of reporters into our communities to share positive stories of law enforcement, stories which are consistently ignored by the mainstream media.

As a thank-you for your generosity in standing strong for the blue family, we are offering access codes for Law Enforcement Today’s Wounded Officer documentary and Border Crisis documentary.  In addition, we offer additional perks such as stickers and Thin Blue Line face masks or yard signs.

Donors are also able to honor or memorialize a member of the blue family.

For those who cannot afford to contribute, we invite you to be a part of a nationwide chain of prayer warriors.  

You can join our prayer chain along with other supporters who are willing to pray for our brothers and sisters in blue.

We support those who protect and serve.

Also, when you sign up for our newsletter, we will keep you informed on how we are continuing to back the Blue, and bring you the stories the mainstream media will not touch.

Now to small businesses who are sick and tired of watching our cities burn as the “defund the police” movement spreads.

For business donors, we are pleased to offer a unique opportunity to make a difference in police departments across the country.

Reyes explains:

“We wanted to make sure small businesses could get in the fight, so we are rolling out the ‘adopt a police department’ program.”

Your business donation will be used to cover stories in the community of your choice, and expose those who are attempting to defund the police.  Those stories, if you choose, will also include a thank you to your business and a link back to your business website.  

In addition, your generous business donation will go toward advertising campaigns that highlight the negative effects of demonizing and defunding the police.

We’ve got your 6.

This will give you the opportunity to show to millions of Americans that, unlike “woke” anti-police organizations, you support and appreciate law enforcement.

Reyes points out:

“Corporate America rallied around the Black Lives Matter movement, donating hundreds of millions of dollars to a campaign that brought widespread looting and destruction in our cities.  

“This is an opportunity for businesses to show America that law and order and keeping people safe still means something to them.”

Please join your voice with Law Enforcement Today in this campaign to support all those who protect and serve us.

We invite you to visit the Re-Fund the Police website for further information.

It’s time to get in the fight.
