BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Dozens gathered near the intersection of Calloway Drive and Hageman Road in Northwest Bakersfield for what they called an "All Lives Matter" rally Friday.

One of the demonstrators said the event was all about showing support for the nation and our nation's history.

"Basically, We are just out here supporting our country, our president, our police force, our military, all of what this country stands for,” said Jimmy Denson.

Members of the group said they do not want to spread hate but show genuine love and support for their country.

The group dressed in various attire showing support for President Trump holding signs and getting many to honk for them as they drove by.

“It seems lately everyone has lost where we come from and everyone is trying to get rid of where we come from. There's an old saying, ‘if you destroy the history, you forget the history."

There were no reports of any violence during the event and the demonstration remained peaceful.
