Citizens gathered in Brandon, Vermont to hold an anti-Joe Biden “Let’s Go Brandon” rally.
On Saturday, hundreds of people gathered in the cold and rain to express their dislike for the Democrat Party, as well as to support local businesses in the small town. Attendees said they wanted to show their support for the Republican Party and oppose communism, which many of the attendees fear is the direction of the Democrat Party.
The rally was put on by newly elected state GOP Chair Paul Dame, who said he wanted to help give people a place to express discontent while also helping his hometown.
“Well, what happened today is exactly what we had planned from the beginning. We wanna take the sort of irritation people have and push it into a positive direction,” said Dame. “And I think we did that.”
A small counter-protest also occurred on the village green. This demonstration stayed peaceful with Dame saying he’s glad they felt free to come and express themselves even if he disagrees with their views. He added it helped give the town of Brandon more business.
