All my friends that live in D.C. — please be careful. The streets are filling with Proud Boys, White Supremacists and the ugliest underbelly of that which is Trumpism. Stay home. Let them “Self Destruct.”
Recent demonstrations by pro-Trump groups have ended in violence and arson.
In November and December, pro-Trump protesters — including far-right groups the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers and others — amassed in the District to protest the election results on two other occasions. Both days ended in violence.
Some experts who monitor far-right groups have warned that Wednesday’s event could be more dangerous, as groups have discussed ways to sneak guns into the District.”
