Today some white nationalist idiots decided to commemorate their previous white nationalist rally last year but so few people showed up that Antifa decided to attack cops instead.
Whoa. This @DCPoliceDept officer was nearly mobbed by a group of counterprotesters at #UniteTheRight2. People were throwing things at him, shoving him and kicking his motorcycle. Looks like another cop was also in the mix, too. pic.twitter.com/IHoc5dvebW— Christal Hayes (@Journo_Christal) August 12, 2018
Can’t stress enough how underwhelming the #UniteTheRight2 #unitetheright group is. Twenty MAGA dudes walking inside of 100s of cops, 100s of media, and 1000s of counter demonstrators down F street pic.twitter.com/BQZBpn9oME— Scott Heins (@scottheins) August 12, 2018
Members of the far-left group ANTIFA are at the counter protest at Freedom Plaza. They have helmets, body armor, and their faces covered. They are shielding themselves from our cameras out of fear of being identified @wusa9 #UnitetheRight2 #UnitedAgainstHate pic.twitter.com/Sfkv3PdKOs— Michael Quander WUSA9 (@MikeQReports) August 12, 2018
Stacks of signs line patches of grass on the northeast side of Lafayette Park. Organizers said they’ll be here as long as #UniteTheRight2 remains in #DC. Their permit goes through midnight. #ShutItDownDC pic.twitter.com/Wbd2keWMbd— Marissa J. Lang (@Marissa_Jae) August 12, 2018
Black Lives Matter organizers announcing: “We are not here to confront the Nazis. Fuck the Nazis. We’re here to shine. We’re here to be unapologetically black.” They’re going to have a block party here instead. #BlackLivesMatter #ShutItDownDC #UnitetheRight2 pic.twitter.com/SEegxyftCh— Marissa J.

"Behind the police there is a small number, maybe a dozen, maybe 20 of the white supremacist ralliers. Many of them are wearing masks or wearing helmets disguising their faces carrying American flags," @krisvancleave reports as #UniteTheRight2 protesters march to Lafayette Park. pic.twitter.com/G62SDVFOQ1— CBS News (@CBSNews) August 12, 2018
