LANSING—Wayne Boonstra said he had plans and other things he needed to do, but ultimately ended up joining a protest against election fraud because he felt he needed to be there, and it was his duty as a citizen.
“I had to come today. My country needs me, and I need this country to be what it ought to be,” he said at a Stop the Steal rally in Lansing, Michigan on Nov. 28, 2020. Thousands have been protesting against election fraud every Saturday since Election Day.
“It affects not only me, but generations after that. And I love this country,” he said. “I guess my biggest concern right now is, I’m afraid of what this country is going to become if I don’t stand up and do something now. I’ve been watching it go downhill and I’m afraid of where it’s going to go and where we’re going to be.”
