One Year Later…

The one-year anniversary of the Unite-the-Right rally in Charlottesville was supposed to be commemorated by Unite-the-Right II in Lafayette Park in front of the Kremlin Annex, er, the White House. All sort of counter-protesters were there (estimates were in the hundreds if not thousands), the police was there, everything was set for a big moment.

Even Hair Furor had tweetered out his dogwhistle du jour:

And then fewer than 40 Racists showed up. The numbers are disputed (but not by much):

Axios: A “few dozen white nationalists [were] surrounded by barricades and vastly outnumbered by police, let alone the thousands of counter-demonstrators.”

Tiger Beat on the Potomac: “About 30 rally-goers, representing a loose coalition of groups including white supremacists and neo-Nazis, arrived at a metro station in Vienna, Virginia Sunday afternoon and took the Metro into the city, where they headed toward Lafayette Square across the street from the White House.”

Reliable Sources: Jeff Greenfield tweeted: “Would have been way better if networks had led tonight with: ‘After all the hype, about 25 white supremacists — that’s right, TWENTY FIVE — marched in DC today. ‘ [pause] Back to you at the anchor desk.”

So, with something like 20-or-more protester per racists, it was really a non-event. I guess the Master Race crowd is not all brave?

One year ago, white supremacists marched in Charlottesville carrying guns and tiki torches and chanting Nazi slogans, like “Jews will not replace us.”

    This is exactly what happened to these assholes in Boston last year. The Northeastern Seaboard is denied to them.

    I’m pretty sure even 25 is a generous estimate. Anything above that would include journalists and photographers who outnumbered them.

    One would think that it would not be that difficult to count accurately up to, oh, say mebbe as high as a hunnert, eh? Why is it that none in the media was able to do that? Weird.

    Funny that the one AP radio news report I heard ONLY mentioned Antifa clashing with the police. Not exactly “fake news” but definitely cherry picked and heavily slanted.

      I think that was because the police confiscated anything that might be used as a weapon from the Nazi’s before they were allowed out of the cage.

      So, they were virtually castrated and appropriately subdued with the lights on.

    i’m guessing they heard there might be rain and were afraid they might get mud on their khakis.
