Unite the Right Rally Deemed a Dud: More Lime Scooters Than White Nationalists

As Unite the Right protesters descended upon Washington, D.C. to commemorate the one-year anniversary of their 2016 Charlottesville, VA rally that turned deadly, it turned out that only a couple dozen showed up. Reporters on the ground immediately took note of the diluted support on Sunday, tweeting out photos and videos in which police appeared to far outnumber white supremacist demonstrators. Counter-protesters came out in greater numbers, marching through the capital under the watch of heavy police presence, which monitored the crowd to keep any flare ups in check. Jason Kessler, who was in D.C. leading the Unite the Right rally, even admitted his efforts fell flat, according to Mediaite’s Caleb Ecarma.
