We have reasonable information that a BLM event is planned for downtown St. George at 7:00 PM tonight. We think it will likely be merely some college and high school students and nothing more. We have no conclusive evidence that the rumors of Antifa or bussed in demonstrators from out of state are true, although there still are continuing rumors in this regard.
Nevertheless, various patriotic groups are assembling to respond, both out of an abundance of caution, and for a showing of support of opposition to such leftist groups and also to support the police.
We suggesting to DSUHC members that if you have time this evening, it would be well to show up in demonstration of unity with the other groups who are planning to assemble. The location in the parking lot behind the county building at 200 East just off the Boulevard. (Near Ice Burg). This is not an event for children, please do not bring them.
It is import to note that this is not an event to promote the protection of the UTAH’S DIXIE name. Do not bring Dixie signs, do not wear Dixie shirts. The media will misinterpret the issue in a negative way.
This effort is a protest against those who want to defund the police, promote violence, are sympathetic to the destruction of property, riot and looting , promote the cancellation culture, promote the idea that their lives matter more than others and support threat of violence and intimidation to achieve their objectives.
Again, we invite you to show up about 6;30. We can gather near the Liberty Action Coalition tent. They will appreciate our support. And they will likewise support us in our various endeavors.
We do not recommend weapons. We intend for this to be peaceful and not physically confrontational. But there is strength in numbers.
Also, we ask you to be respectful to those BLM demonstrators and others with whom we disagree. They have a right to protest- as do we. If they block roads or otherwise break the law, the police will take care of it.
At the very least, it will be a great opportunity to gather and further solidly our commitment as a group to protect our community.
This is a peculiar time in the history of our community and our nation. These are again the times that try men’s (and women’s) souls. We are living in the middle of it now.
