Million Maga March on DC Saturday..

The Usual suspects, including Alex Jones.

I think the main aim of this is to provoke a response from counterdemonstrators, provoking violence. I hope the BLM and others will not take the pain, but the chances of that are low.

..and if no violent Anti-fa, BLM can be found, I'm sure the Proud Boys will play-act as some.

DC police have mostly done a good job of keeping these groups separate - and it helps a great deal that white supremacist rallies in DC know they're deep into hostile territory. At most a few of them will rush out beyond police protection, and then get beaten down.

not saying there has been no public confrontation between antifa and violent facists.

but we now know that many of the acts of violence and arson attributed to the "radical left" were the work of "false-flag" violent right-wingers.

Yeah they're not even coming into the city, but "stationed outside":

https://www.mediamatters.org/infowar...ngage-violence

I presume they tried to dogwhistle the DC police and were told to **** off, and without a line of racist cops to hide behind they're too chicken to follow through.

It would be a mistake to try and confront these whackos. Let them have their day and go home. Cause you just know they will be looking for a chance to gin up some violence.

Conservatives will travel from South Florida to Washington, D.C., on Saturday to back President Donald Trump’s quest to prove Democrats stole the election from him through fraud.

A march will include about 250 members of the right-wing Proud Boys group from around the country, and promoters include the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of Florida, with nine chapters around the state.

Enrique Tarrio, the Miami-based chairman of the Proud Boys, spoke about the plans to the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Thursday and also rebutted claims of a leadership coup within his organization.

Nah, that's when they start running around and attacking random people going about their business (eg. Unite the Right). When they face larger groups and especially a PD that doesn't treat them as brothers in arms (Portland cops I'm looking at you), they invariably scurry off almost immediately and cry on whatever nazi-infested site they're using now.

Heres the thing. If they do that without an opposition they can blame violence on, it makes them look bad. It makes it impossible to get any real public support. Trump lost and the march doesn't change that. Trump supporters today are losers in more ways than one. A march to say he won is utterly delusional.

I agree. Let them look like the fools they are strutting around in their MAGA hats, macho cammo outfits and guns and waving their Trump, US and Stars and Bars flags. Don't give them the time of day and just ignore them as undeserving of attention.

Besides, I think the DC police can stop any hoodlumism by the Marching Morons.
9And, yes, I am referencing the Kornbluth sci fi novel of that name).

Does DC allow open carry of firearms or respect Florida concealed carry permits?

I would guess that would be the first problems they find in DC if they tried.

So...259 people, then? I suspect there will be many thousands more than that coming to Washington just to see the Smithsonian museums and other sights. In fact, I suspect there will be more street-sweepers and taco-trucks than that.

So these nitwits will be lost in the crowd.

No, the point is these guys are cowards. They're ready for some glorious confrontation of bloodshed and blah blah blah. Instead, they're confronted by a group that could easily swarm them and beat them all into the pavement - but are instead just dancing and making sure they don't wreck any BLM-related artwork.

End result? They still look absurd, nobody gets hurt - either by the white nationalists that love Dolt 45, or by the idiot pseudo-anarchists that may decide to show up and break some windows.

It's not like there aren't protests of some sort going on in DC on the Memorial Mall and in front of the White House, like, constantly.

DC residents are used to ignoring protests.

No and no. DC has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. They don't honor any other state's permits (to include Maryland and Virginia). You can't even pass through DC with an unregistered firearm. Open carry in DC and you're likely to get shot. I'm kind of guessing that DC cops won't have any issues with busting a cap on a white supremacist.

No-carry is true for a lot of major cities, but doubly so for the District, I suspect. Something about ease of assassination of the nation's leaders.

It would probably be even more of a **** show than we can imagine.

Which means he should do it. It would be the perfect capstone on the pyramid of nonsense that was his presidency.

I wasn't serious. The WH is public property, and contains a lot of valuable antiques that

That may be cheap replicas put in place by Melancholia and others while the originals are on their way to market.

God damn my imagination!

Do you really think Melanoma would recognize any non shiny items as valuable?

Lafayeete park across from the White House is pretty much inhabited by protestors 24/7. It's sort of the American answer to Speaker's corner in Hyde park in London.

The numbers are not hard at all!

I sure will be showing up because I am such a great Trump supporter.

So that all that they need is another 999,741 to show up as well.

With a gun.
To protect everyone.
From the liberals.
Who are unarmed.
And must die.
