American Victory Coalition rally in Denver

Posted by Richard on August 23, 2008

UPDATE (8/23): According to a Colorado Dennis Prager fan, big-league blogger and columnist Michelle Malkin will be at this rally. I know she's going to be in town for the convention, so this is plausible. I hope she'll bring her trampoline. 😉 

If you're anywhere near Denver, please join me in attending the American Victory Coalition rally at Pioneer Monument Park (right across the street from Civic Center Park at Colfax and Broadway) on Sunday, August 24th, from 10 AM to 2 PM. Participating organizations include Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission, Vets for Freedom, and A Gathering of Eagles.

The rally will feature Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee (link is to YouTube video), mother of the first Navy Seal killed in Iraq, Marc Allen Lee. I've been impressed by Debbie Lee's writings, and I'm looking forward to hearing her speak. Other speakers include Green Beret Maj. Diggs Brown, Jr. , Vets for Freedom chairman Pete Hegseth, and Colorado State Senator (Col.) Steve Ward.

El Marco explains the event:

Our goal is to show the world America’s true colors: strength, patriotism and resolve in the war on terror. The Democratic National Convention will be a left wing free-for-all with mass media trumpeting radical anti-war messages. If you respect our troops, their commanders and their mission, this is the opportunity to make your voice heard.      

Media attention on Americans who actively support victory is almost non-existent. This is an opportunity to change that.  It’s important for the public to see that the “silent majority” is silent no more. Also this rally will be directly in view of the delegates to the DNC, who clearly need to hear this message. The organizers welcome anyone who wants to show their support for victory in the war against radical Islamic extremists and the regimes that support them.

If you're in the Colorado Springs area or around Monument or Castle Rock, there are seats available on the Families United shuttle buses to the event. Go here and scroll down past the sample posters for information.

I'm planning to take the light rail to the 16th Street mall and walk over from there. Organizers say they'll have extra signs available, so I won't have to carry one on the train (who knows what the rules about that are!). If you're coming from outside central Denver, you might want to park at the Broadway & I-25 Park and Ride and take the train from there. Otherwise, keep in mind that meters in downtown Denver are free on Sundays.

See you there! I'll be the bearded guy in this Protest Warrior T-shirt
