The part where you seriously felt the need to ask that question. I know it's a radical conservative wet dream for liberals to turn America's throbbing heart into a dystopian wasteland so the diehard right wing vigilante types can play cowboys and communists but it's not happening.

wow, 81 million votes and a failure of a rally. but yeah, what are the dems trying to prove with this? is antifa and blm there? or were they told to stand down or leave the matches at home?
It's a group with 800 followers on Twitter. I doubt that much of anybody saw it. They did, however, go to the trouble to try and get bands and so forth and they did get a parade permit, so it's all legal.
does anyone really think the fake news will cover any of the protest?
As someone pointed out, there's small protests all over the country every day. Here's a story about real white supremacists in DC this week and you notice it wasn't talked about in much of any place.
I only heard about it because of a friend linking this story on Facebook -- and it was there because some of the guys got stuck in the cold after the march.
Anyway, these sorts of things happen frequently in large cities. It only gets attention if there's a lot of property damage or if the crowds are larger than about 2,000 people. And for national attention, only marches with a very large number of people (10,000 or more) get much attention.
I'd bet you didn't hear about the Dallas women's rights march this year. Only 3,000 people showed up.
Like I said... not enough of a crowd to get national attention. Only got some local attention.
So... yeah, real protest, and really ineffective. Not surprising.
