Hundreds of President Trump’s supporters marched through Hollywood, California, over the weekend in what was called the “Rescue America” rally.
About 400 people gathered for the demonstration on Saturday, which began in West Hollywood, and they marched toward Los Angeles’s Beverly Hills sign, according to local outlet Fox 11. Actors Lorenzo Lamas, Scott Baio, and singer Joy Villa were among those who spoke at the event.
“We’re a movement of people who are walking away from the Democratic Party. We’re walking away from the ideology of liberalism, the liberal media … basically, we want to live in a country with peace and civility … truthfulness, kindness, and again, we’re not getting that from the political left, so we’re walking away from the Democrats,” said Brandon Starka, the founder of an organization called Walk Away.
“We’re doing these rallies because we wanted to show the radical left who’s been smashing windows, committing acts of violence, and committing acts of vandalism they do not own America’s streets. We’re going to fight for the heart and soul of America, so this is our third one. Next week we’ll be in Milwaukee, and we’ll basically be doing ‘Rescue America’ rallies around the country for now through the end of the year,” he added.
The Walk Away organization said it planned the rally to “speak out against the destruction of property and lives, the villainization of law enforcement and weaponization of tragedies.”
Marchers, who were described as peaceful by law enforcement, carried Trump 2020 flags, American flags, and signs that read “United We Stand.”
