Safe and Sound

I'm back from the pushback protest. I think we numbered in the several hundreds, with lots of signs and Bronx cheers and middle finger salutes, and chants. The Proud Boys (or whoever they were) numbered at most 30. And there were dozens and dozens of cops.

We sent those Nazis packing like egg-sucking dogs. We didn't let up until their permit expired, and we were at our loudest when they took their Trump flags and crept back to the worm holes from which they came.

Antifa served as our protection unit. They were mostly on the perimeter, watching our backs.

It got a little dicey here and there, some running and shouting ... but Heir and I kept our distance from that.

A lovely thought: We were on Independence Mall, which is federal property. I don't want a record with the U.S. government, so I'm glad all went well.

Nazi scum, off our streets.

Trumplethinskin has given them a voice and they think people want to listen to their crap. Shear numbers should tell them they are wrong.

yay for you! Yay for us!
I read that Uber, Lyft and cab drivers refused to cart the slime away from the protest. Yay them!

Thank you for doing this. I can't walk much anymore, so my protesting days are done. But we need a turnaround in our culture. We need more wisdom and less adolescence.
