OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Warren Buffet's hometown hosted thousands of mothers at the Mom's March for America Saturday September 23. Hundreds of moms joined the event in person in Omaha, Nebraska. Thousands joined via live stream in over 3000 cities and every state in America uniting under the banner of the Declaration of Mothers.
The Mom's March was organized by a small army of mom volunteers using cell phones and laptops from their kitchen tables. In spite of dozens of press releases and hundreds of calls to media outlets, media coverage of this historical gathering of mothers was dismal at best and moms aren't happy about it. A press release that went out the Tuesday prior to the event was opened by over 5,000 news outlets. One reporter from CBS opened it nine times but not a word about this counter to the pink hat brigade.
Organizers said they were frustrated that Fox News and conservative radio hosts ignored such a newsworthy, culture-shifting event.
Gold Star mom Karen Vaughn expressed her frustration at the lack of media coverage. "We are in a heck of a mess in our nation right now and our culture has never been more out of control. I mean, I never dreamed that I would see the day that women wearing pink, weird, creepy hats would be celebrated and we would be ignored."
Kimberly Fletcher said, "Honestly, mothers are fed up with what's going on in our country and even more so with media who promotes it. I understand why the liberal media would completely ignore a national gathering of mothers standing against the agenda they are trying to push but where the heck was Fox News? Where are all the conservative radio hosts who claim they care about the future of America and preserving freedom? Where was Glenn Beck? Do they really mean what they say or do they just want to sell airtime? If it's about ratings then they should start covering newsworthy events women care about. They'd see a huge ratings spike if they did! Saturday was a powerful national gathering of mothers—a literal seismic shift in the direction of our national culture. The media should have been covering it!"
Moms who attended the event were blown away as one mom after another rocked the stage with "popcorn speeches" that rallied the crowd of moms. Redhead Express—the feature band—was made up of four moms—two of them expecting babies in a few weeks.
Sarah Palin called on all "Mamma Grizzlies" to rise up and protect their children saying, "Times is very short. It is important that each one of us does our job within our own sphere of influence, and don't just leave it to politicians to do it for you. They'll disappoint you."
"Our nation is at a crossroads," said Donna Rice Hughes. "Will we give up and give in or will we fight back and say enough is enough?"
Elizabeth Johnston, the Activist Mommy, opened with how grateful she was not to see any pink hats in the room to which the crowd burst with applause. Sam Sorbo talked about making choices while Missy Robertson declared herself a true feminist, a woman and female in every sense of the word. Candy Carson lamented she only had 8 minutes to speak saying she had so much to share with these women but made a powerful case for the influence of mothers in her allotted time.
Many who attended commented on the high caliber nature and professionalism of the event that was completely organized by volunteer moms. Joe Kerry, former chief of staff for Glenn Beck said, "I have attended literally thousands of events with Glenn and also literally planned hundreds. Your Moms March event was among the best organized and executed. It was simply amazing. You assembled an amazing team and had incredible results."
Kimberly Fletcher, the volunteer mom spearheading the event declared, "We will be doing this again. We have come to the end of this day but it is just the beginning of a mighty movement to take our culture back!"
