The Rev. C.L. Bryant delivered a powerful and rousing speech at FreePAC on Thursday night, telling the audience the importance of restoring love of country and "defending the republic that the Founding Fathers have given to us." The audience responded with roars, cheers and deafening claps, as the faith leader and the maker of the documentary "Runaway Slave" delivered his message of hope and patriotism.
Bryant's voice reverberated throughout the American Airlines Center, as he explained the need for Americans to embrace their country and to fight against tyranny. He also emphasized the importance of rallying together as one, cohesive voice.
"[With] one voice tonight so many of you from all over this world have come here to the land of the free and the home of the brave and we want to let you know that we have always defended people who embraced liberty all over this world," he proclaimed. "And these patriots will not stand down in the face of their enemies!"
But in addition to supporting others in foreign lands, he also told the crowd to defend liberty at home. The audience erupted, getting even louder after he added, "We will defend the Constitution against enemies!"
Bryant also railed against big government, warning that America "could go away as we know her." And earlier in the speech, he encouraged the audience not to "bow down to any earthly king."
Here's the speech, below:
"There are those among us who would enslave us," he said. "The reach and the scope of big government is the new plantation and if we are not careful we will fall under the spell of government handouts. That is why we will send this message tonight from Dallas, Texas, that...we're going to sweep clean the White House."
The fiery faith leader concluded by asking, "Are their any patriots in this place!" The crowd stood up in applause, ase Bryant cheered them on. "God bless you. God bless America," he boomed.
