Thousands descend on Washington D.C. for ‘Defeat the Mandates’ rally

by Summer Lane

Tens of thousands of freedom-loving Americans marched through Washington D.C. on Sunday to protest the tyranny of D.C.’s newly instated vaccine mandate requirements in the city.

The new mandates, which went into effect on Jan. 15, require that any person desiring to enter any indoor space such as restaurants, theaters, hotels, or government buildings, must showed proof of coronavirus vaccination.

According to a report from the AZ Conservative, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser called the mandates a necessary step in light of the pro-life marchers, who she dubbed “disease vectors,” who visited to attend the Annual March for Life on Jan. 21 and the Defeat the Mandates March on Jan. 23.

It would appear, however, that Bowser’s tone-deaf comments did nothing to deter people from showing up to either event.

On Sunday, thousands marched through D.C., which the event organizers called “An American Homecoming.” People carried American and Gadsden flags, as well as homemade signs with slogans like, “Land of the Free” and “Covid is OVER.”

Unsurprisingly, the mainstream media afforded the massive march no coverage aside from mocking the event, labeling it an “anti-vax” protest. However, the event was filled with those who were both vaccinated and unvaccinated against the coronavirus. One sign even read, “Vaxxed Democrat for Medical Freedom.”

After protesters marched peacefully through the city, they gathered at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to hear a plethora of conservative speakers advocating for freedom of medical choice.

Additionally, the Defeat the Mandates march included a panel of doctors who advocated for freedom of medical choice within the coronavirus vaccine debate.

According to a report by BPR, the rally was largely attended by those who had either fled progressive cities to escape oppressive mandates, or by those whose jobs have been threatened for refusing to comply with medical tyranny, including firefighters and police officers.

One thing is certain: Washington D.C.’s medical segregation is not going over well with American citizens who cling to the concepts of individual liberty and freedom for all. This massive rally is a sign that people are not willing to take the medical oppression anymore.
