For over 3 hours our 80+ people enjoyed an almost continuous blast of car horns and thumbs up as we demonstrated our support for our Heroes in Law Enforcement and President Trump.

We’ll be back at it again next Sunday morning.
The local Baptist Church even suspended their service to come and join in! We picked up a Catholic family of 7 as they were going to Mass across the street. At the end of their service the entire family came over and grabbed  signs to join in the demonstration. We also had several other passersby come in from the road and join us.

It was SO MUCH FUN to have the “useful idiots” across the road chanting abut us being racists when we had 5 black people holding signs against BLM! What a BLAST!!!
This is a political momentum that must be experienced first hand to be fully appreciated and tapped into for President Trump to win re-election. I tell you with no shame that I had tears in my eyes, and goose bumps at the tremendous outpouring of support by the thousands of motorists that passed through this very busy intersection. This was, in effect, a local level Trump Rally!
This was a great team effort actually initiated by a single ex-Marie, Blake Thoreson, and then joined by several of his buddies, which Carey Brockman GCTP President and Skip  Claypool, Conservative Emeritus, and the Geauga Tea Party supported.

I ORGANIZED THE EVENT BECAUSE NOBODY’S STANDING UP FOR THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. NOT EVERY COP IS A GREAT COP, BUT EVERY OTHER COP IS AN AMAZING COP – BLAKE THORESON

Flags, signs and people packed the corner of Chillicothe and Mayfield roads in Chester Township for a rally in support of law enforcement July 26.

Flags, signs and people packed the corner of Chillicothe and Mayfield roads in Chester Township for a rally in support of law enforcement July 26.

At its peak, the rally drew over 80 people, said Blake Thoreson, an organizer of the event.

Only a week prior, the corner had seen its fifth Black Lives Matter protest.

“I organized the event because nobody’s standing up for the police department. Not every cop is a great cop, but every other cop is an amazing cop,” Thoreson said. “Our community has amazing law enforcement and nobody’s standing up for them. Nobody’s standing up for America, which is giving everybody the right to do what everybody wants to do.”

Rally attendees held “thin blue line,” Gadsden, Trump 2020 and United States of America flags and a range of signs, such as “We support our police,” “Law and order now!” and “Stop socialism, choose freedom.” Participants ran the gamut in age and race.

Some individuals and families passing by stopped to join the demonstration. Others heard of it by word-of-mouth. Bernadette Wheeler said someone contacted her by phone the day before about the demonstration.

We happen to fly a first responder flag in front of our house every day to support our fire department and our police department,” Wheeler said.

She’d also brought a handful of Gadsden flags and was a former member, and demonstrator, with the Tea Party.
