BLM supporter and Community protector fist bump. Coeur d'alene, Idaho June 1st, 2020

3 years later...

I originally wrote this back in May of 2020 when our country was on fire with domestic terrorists such as ANTIFA and BLM who were attempting to overthrow our system of things and taking over our cities, causing billions of dollars of damage with their destruction, dozens of innocent lives were lost including over 40 police officers who were brutally killed with 60,000 officers physically assaulted and hundreds of innocent people saw their businesses and livelihoods go up in smoke!  Most never to recover...

A lot has happened in 3 years.  We have witnessed large Corporations bow down to these domestic terrorists and even those in our US Government took a knee to appease these thugs.

But now, things seem to be appears that the American people who value their Constitutional rights, their freedoms and their conservative views are peacefully and patriotically
making their voices heard!  There are no FEDS involved to instigate this movement, just God loving, Patriotic Americans putting their money where their morals are.

We've seen Bud lite going stale, Target stocks missing their mark, Disney going down the drain like Splash Mountain, and conservative Americans taking their pocketbook to, true story, low-budget, high-quality movies like, The Sound of Freedom, making it a box office smash hit.  And the latest bit of proof that conservative Americans are showing how loud they can actually be is driven by Jason Aldean with his home run hit, Try That in a Small Town!  

Here is a great side by side video of what our main street looked like on June 1st, 2020 along side of Aldean's hit song.   A North Idaho, YouTuber--hanging Latitudes at Lavoie Hills put together this awesome video.  

The Lunatic Left is going anaphylactic over the movie and the song!  Why?  Well, simple, both of these works of art hit the heart of the conservative American people and they are coming together strong to stand against this WOKE culture that is attempting to take over our way of life, our way of thinking...and this scares the Left.  It scares them because they have NO CONTROL over this movement.  They have NO FEDS in the crowd to pass out money to see the movie or to buy the song.  They have no instigators to move the crowd along.  Nope, they have absolutely no control of the conservative people who are following their hearts and using their hard earned money to speak loudly...and speaking loudly they are!

So, below is the article I wrote back in 2020 when ANTIFA threatened our little lakeside community.  We are, afterall, a "small town."  We do take care of our own, and everyone who lives here and has heard the song, "Try That In a Small Town" immediately thinks back to the day OUR small town gathered together, in a moments notice, to protect that which we love...

Here it is, once again:

If you ventured to downtown Coeur d’Alene, Idaho last night you would think you had entered a Militia family reunion. No one has an accurate count of how many heavily armed citizens came out to support peaceful protestors and protect local businesses and citizens against shipped in ANTIFA members but it was certainly HUNDREDS, perhaps over a THOUSAND.


“We just drove downtown Coeur d’Alene. It is packed with armed citizens. I’ve never seen so many AR-15s in my life. There’s at least a thousand armed citizens walking on the sidewalks and the streets are packed with cars and trucks with guys in the back with AR-15 and American flags everywhere. We saw two protesters wearing their little black clothing and black masks and sitting on a step quietly with their little poster board sign saying “our system sucks!” Guess why they’re being so polite.”~Keith Gibson, Coeur d’Alene resident.

Word got out that ANTIFA was going to ship in rioters to mingle with peaceful protestors in our quiet little town…and indeed they did as several white Mercedes vans were seen with dozens of people that didn’t belong in our community. It was also made known that they were planning to use the local WINCO store as their staging ground. After learning this, a well organized local group of concerned citizens set up a post in the parking lot to ensure that these unwelcomed invaders clearly understood that the citizens of Coeur d’Alene would have ZERO tolerance for any type of violence or destructive behavior in our town.

Don’t tell me you’re peaceful and bring a crowbar to a protest…. not in our town… Was happy to remove it from their possession as we escorted him to his vehicle [ and just to clarify the guy in the beard handed me the crow bar when I requested it, His name is Sam and he did get that guy to leave ] Brett Surplus, Coeur d’Alene resident

The downtown area of Coeur d’Alene, Id was wall to wall with armed citizens, who protected the city for the entire night. Many had posts directly in front of local businesses while others walked the sidewalks making their powerful presence known. Photo’s below courtesy of Mark Addy, Coeur d’Alene resident.

What was witnessed last night, 06/01/20 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, was PROOF that Good Guys with guns keep bad guys with evil intent away. There was unity in a cause to protect the community. There were young people, old people, individuals from all walks of life out patrolling the community and believe it or not, EVERYONE, except the ANTIFA creeps felt extremely safe!

We were surrounded by people so heavily armed…there was literally thousands of guns of all types…most people had several different weapons on them and I never felt more safe in such a huge crowd in my entire life! ~Grayson Cross, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho resident
