1776 Freedom March in Austin TX Featuring Augustus Invictus | MRNW #1 – Part 1

On Jul. 1 a few hundred self-styled patriots gathered in Austin’s Wooldridge Square for the 1776 Freedom March where organizers with Texans United for America rallied attendees ahead of Independence Day and marched on the capital to promote American exceptionalism and values.

The Facebook event post states:

In 1776, we the people of the United States of America declared our Independence. On July 1st 2017, we will celebrate not only our Independence, but our return to American Exceptionalism by marching forward for American First! We March for America, for Freedom, for Liberty and Justice. Bring Your Flags, bring your Patriotism, as we stand up and march to the capital in support of our country and its return to greatness. Presented by Texans United for America.

We’re back again for our second march! First, we had our great March 4 Trump, now we will have our 1776 Freedom March. Come out for an exciting patriotic day in the capital of the great state of Texas!

Among the speakers were Joe “Rambo” Biggs of Borderland Alternative Media, Kyle Chapman, known as Based Stickman of Battle of Berkeley fame, Augustus Invictus of The Revolutionary Conservative, independent conservative media figure Outlaw Morgan, and Joseph Offutt of Unity Force One.

Annika O’Brien and I went to Austin, Texas that day to see what we could for ourselves.

My camera gave out to the heat, but before then I was able to capture audio of Invictus’ remarks.

Special thanks to @THE_kenny_siler  for speaking with us as we arrived at the Texas State Capitol.
