MISSOULA, Montana—A remote stretch in the northwest part of this state may seem an unlikely spot for a pro-choice rally on Independence Day weekend. The small town of Eureka, population roughly 1,400, is home to over a dozen churches, voted 73 percent for Donald Trump in 2020, and hosted a trucker protest of hundreds earlier this year at the Canadian border crossing 10 miles away.
Perhaps more unlikely is who’s organizing the rally: Sequoia Rhodes Adams, the 19-year-old daughter of Oath Keepers militia founder Stewart Rhodes. The family patriarch is currently jailed awaiting trial after pleading not guilty to charges of seditious conspiracy related to what federal prosecutors say was his far-right group’s plot to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
“I was extremely anti-feminist growing up,” Sequoia told The Daily Beast, describing her political transformation into a pro-choice activist after the family fled what they have previously described as Rhodes’ violently abusive Montana home in 2018.
“He couldn’t even talk about abortion or he would freak out,” she said of her father.
Sequoia and her adult siblings recently leveled abuse allegations against their father in an interview with the Southern Poverty Law Center. Those claims came on top of allegations of violence made in a 2018 application for a restraining order by Sequoia’s mother Tasha, Rhodes’ estranged wife. (The restraining order was denied by a local judge, and divorce proceedings remain ongoing. But multiple family members leveled similar allegations of domestic violence in a recent Insider story.)

Conor Benn out to ‘set the score straight’ with Chris Eubank Jr after his dad’s controversial draw in 1993 rematch
CONOR BENN is out to "set the score straight" against Chris Eubank Jr on behalf of his dad Nigel.

That ended a draw, following Eubank's brutal win three years earlier, although several felt Nigel deserved the nod.
And with a trilogy failing to materialise, Benn is ready for redemption when the family feud is renewed three decades later.
He said: "Dad had a draw the last fight, we know he should have won. I'm just going to go in there and handle business and I settle the score."
Benn, 25, will have to jump up 10lb from his usual 147lb weight class with the the bout set at 157lb.READ MORE IN BOXINGI'D GLOVE TO Eubank wants his dad in corner for Benn fight but reveals he's 'gone missing'
Eubank Jr, 32, on the other hand is a career middleweight at 160lb, who has even campaigned as high as 168lb.
The weight disparity has meant the two will meet between the 154lb light-middleweight and middleweight limit.
And due to Eubank's superior size, a rehydration clause limiting him to what he can weigh the next morning has been put in place.
Although the exact amount was not revealed live on stage as the fighting sons came face-to-face in London ahead of the fight.4 Most read in SportMESSI'S MAGIC 'Shy' Messi looks embarrassed as crowd chants his name during PSG matchGOAT ABSENT Mystery as Brady misses Bucs practice for 'personal reasons' with fans worriedWILL MISS YOU Serena breaks down in tears as tennis icon loses ahead of upcoming retirementFLO RIDA Inside Messi's '£7.25m Miami flat with car lift that he bought ahead of MLS move'

Eubank Jr said: "I can't be 100 per cent when I have to go down to a weight I've never been to and then I can't rehydrate fully.
"That's fair, because if I'm 100 per cent it's a public execution, I have to be at a disadvantage to make the fight reasonable.
"I'll be 60 per cent on the night, and that will be enough to do whatever I want with you."4Chris Eubank Jr and Conor Benn fight at a 157lb catchweightCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun
