Masked Black Lives Matter Activists Caught And Prove Purpose Is Not Political Change

Yesterday around two dozen protesters showed up for a “Unite the Right” rally in Washington, D.C.

But as Lifezette reported that group was vastly outnumbered by counter-protesters who had been gathering in the nation’s capital during the day. The organizer, Jason Kessler and his band of supporters, were greeted with shouts of “Go home!” and “You’re not welcome here!” as they left the metro station.

Police officers ended up needing to escort the group as they began making their way east toward Lafayette Square Park, where a crowd of counterprotesters chanted, “Nazis go home!” and “Shame! Shame! Shame!” The self-professed anti-racist protesters had been gathering as part of a series of counter-protests planned in Washington. That group was being led by members of 40 anti-racism groups.

Large crowds of counter-protesters gathered in the early afternoon in D.C.’s Freedom Plaza where they held a “United Against Hate” demonstration featuring a series of guest speakers.

Here is more on this via Fox Carolina:

“A small group of white nationalists has arrived in Lafayette Square Park across the street from the White House, where they’re holding a rally on the anniversary of clashes in Charlottesville that left one person d**d and elevated racial tension in America.

But the group was vastly outnumbered by throngs of counterprotesters who had been gathering in the nation’s capital throughout the day.

Organizer Jason Kessler said in his event permit application that between 100 and 400 people were expected to attend the “Unite the Right 2” gathering, which was billed as a “white civil rights rally.”

Kessler also organized last year’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville to oppose the renaming of two parks honoring Confederate generals, an event that drew white nationalists, neo-Nazis and members of the Ku Klux Klan.

On Sunday he arrived with a small group of white nationalists at Washington’s Foggy Bottom subway station about 3 p.m. — some two hours earlier than anticipated.

Shouts of “Go home!” and “You’re not welcome here!” greeted Kessler and his band of supporters as they left the metro station.

Police officers escorted the group as they began making their way east towards Lafayette Square Park, where a crowd of counterprotesters chanted, “Nazis go home!” and “Shame! Shame! Shame!”

The anti-racist protesters had been gathering as part of a series of counter-protests planned in Washington, led by members of 40 anti-racism groups. The Shut it Down D.C. Coalition, for example, scheduled its own rally beginning at noon to counter “Unite the Right 2.”
