The Face of Resilience: Watch as 1 Unarmed Guard Stares Down Anti-American Protesters


Amid a flurry of America-hating, pro-Palestinian protesters in Washington D.C., one unarmed guard was willing to step up and face down the crowd demonstrating for the terrorist group Hamas.

On Saturday, thousands of pro-Hamas leftists showed up to rally outside of the White House and scream at President Joe Biden for providing military aid to Israel.

Within all the chaos, countless protesters graffitied anti-Israel slogans on sidewalks and statues with little to no resistance from authorities on the scene.

Those in attendance quickly spray-painted phrases like “Glory 2 the resistance” and “Israel is a terrorist state” as onlookers watched.

But not everyone could just stand by while these enraged leftists desecrated their surroundings.

Despite being yelled at constantly and having numerous items thrown at him, a lone National Park Service Ranger stood before a monument in Lafayette Square — across the street from the White House — to at least try to deter the crowd.

WARNING: The video below contains graphic language that will be offensive to some viewers.

“Who do you serve” and “Who do you protect” berated him nonstop but he never wavered in standing his position.

Of course, this rabble couldn’t help but call him a “fascist” in their childish chants, something he appeared to find humorous. He mocked the crowd by mimicking a symphony conductor managing the noise.

Ultimately, the statue was further vandalized even under his watch but preventing it was a Sisyphean task for just one man.

The National Park Service spent much of Sunday power washing the statuaries in Lafayette Square, according to The Washington Post.

There were no arrests, the Post reported.

Social media responses were a mixture of admiration for the ranger and outrage about what was occurring.

Saturday’s protest was largely organized by the progressive group Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, according to Fox News.

While perhaps this ranger may have not entirely succeeded in preventing more nonsense from being painted onto the stone, but he succeeded tremendously in standing strong.

He managed to stand before constant verbal provocations and flat-out assault without losing his cool once.

None of the threatening behavior shook him whatsoever, seemingly bouncing off him.

While the video only showed the encounter for a brief minute, the time spent at the statue was likely far longer as protests lasted nearly the entire day.

Should you go to jail for defacing public property?

Not everyone has the patience — or courage — to stand there and peacefully stand against the mob. Outnumbered by hundreds to his one, things could easily have gone badly for him.

Perhaps if more people stood up to these ridiculous protesters as this unarmed ranger did, if the Biden administration used its powers to enforce the law and protect public property instead of coddling left-wing demonstrators, the progressives would back off.

As it is, they face no consequences. If there’s justice, Joe Biden will face the consequences in November.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
