Charles Robinson III partial speech ~ Boston Free Speech Rally
Published on May 16, 2017
Here’s a partial speech from the Boston Free Speech Rally with a special note from Oath Keeper President and Founder Stewart Rhodes.
“It was an honor, and one of the highlights of a great day, to meet this patriot military family that has a multi-generation tradition of service to this nation. Father and both sons are Trump supporters and also very hardcore supporters of both the Second Amendment and the First Amendment. And that is why they were there at the rally. The father’s hat said: “The Second Amendment Protects the First.”
They are local Boston area residents and told me they were glad they came to the rally. You can see they got pretty emotional when I asked them what they thought of Antifa and the communists burning American flags (we did not see that in Boston on May 13 but we have all seen it on YouTube being done across the country).
The father’s statement about his family’s commitment to “lace up their boots” and answer the call whenever this nation is threatened really was the best speech of the day and made my eyes tear up.
He told how the men in his family served in the Navy in the Pacific in WWII and then his father served in the Korean War and then died in Vietnam. His uncle also fought in Vietnam but made it home. He served in the 24th Infantry in the 70s and his son, Charles the third, served in Iraq.
All that was backdrop for his powerful statement that “those &@@$! communists will not take this (pointing to the ground) from us, or all they fought for will be for nothing.”
Father and both sons joined us for the march and when they got back the son spoke to the crowd and gave a damn fine speech, coming from the heart of a combat veteran infantryman about how good it made him feel to be there and to march with all of us.
I asked father and son to join Oath Keepers and they accepted the invite. And then they joined us for beers and dinner afterwards.”
