So I must admit something doesnt sound right about this... Antifa and BLM were supposed to be out there in full force, and multiple other pro-monument
groups were supposed to be out theren in full force... but it seems that wasnt the case... I really hope our statie friend comes as usual tomorrow so
can chat about this.
I have seen (and talked with) a number of conservative friends who were "loaded for bear" on the news (from ... mysterious sources) that ANTIFA/BLM
were going to show up at a local gun show. They never showed because someone assumed there would be protesters or heard there would be protesters and
the first thing everyone then assumed was that "protester=ANTIFA and BLM."
At the one show that I worked, I kept pointing out that ANTIFA/BLM weren't tweeting about it and that it wasn't anything they were interested in
protesting and that it was unlikely they could come into a hotel and stage a protest (outside, maybe...nnot inside)... AND that the BLM/ANTIFA Twitter
feeds hadn't mentioned them.
I bet your friend's source heard "protesters will show up" and immediately thought BLM/ANTIFA without actually checking to see if those groups were
even thinking about showing up.
