Today, Look Ahead America’s Executive Director issued the following statement.
There has been a lot of disinformation spread about our event, primarily by hostile, leftist media, so I want to make the following very clear:
We condemn political violence in all its forms, especially violence perpetrated on January 6, and we believe those who are found guilty should be punished.
This is a rally in support of those who have been charged with nonviolent offences to protest of their disparate treatment at the hands of the Department of Justice and the Judiciary.
Our event on Saturday, like all of our other events, is a 100% peaceful First Amendment exercise.
We have had dozen successful protest events around the country, including two in the District of Columbia, and we have worked on a daily basis with the Capitol Hill Police to ensure this is a safe, successful event.
Our leftist opponents want us to give up on the First Amendment, give up on voting, give up on citizen activism. While sitting on the sidelines, they push patriotic Americans to apathy and even to violence.
We believe that through peaceful community organizing and competent, honest leadership, we can restore and reform our government and save our country.
I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday, September 18, and the seventeen state rallies in the coming weeks.
