Greene/Gaetz presser for J6 shut down by protesters

On the 27th of July, reps Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, and several others from the MAGAt wing of the GOP attempted to hold a press conference in front of the Dept of Justice concerning the January 6 assault on the US Capitol and apparently on ensuing legal cases. Anti-Trump protesters shut them down cold, forcing an end to the press conference.

MAGAts and a few Proud Boys protest ongoing arrests and prosecution of J6 insurgents

On the 17th of July, about 100 Trump supporters including members of the Proud Boys returned to DC to protest the ongoing arrests and prosecutions of themselves and others for the violent Jan 6 attempt to forcibly overturn the 2020 election by storming the Capitol. They showed up at DC Jail, where some of their own have been held without bond.

DC/Richmond "White Lives Matter" march no-show after their comms disrupted

Fascist "White Lives Matter" groups had announced plans over Telegram for April 11 marches in many major cites. For a month, Richmond was to be targetted, until their organizing chats turned chaotic. They whined on Twitter that antifa had taken over these chats, and attempted to salvage the DMV plans with a hasty plan to march on DC instead. That too fell apart, and on April 11 there were no signs of them in DC and no reports of them in Richmond either.

Breaking: Fascists no-show on Capitol Hill on March 4

For all the bluster from Qanon fools about storming the Capitol for a second time on March 4 and reinstalling Trump in the White House, nothing happened. The Washington Post called the threats a "mirage." This was the third no-show in a row for Trump's Fascist movement in DC: Jan 17, Jan 20(Biden's Inauguration), and now March 4 were all failures to appear on their part. Seems they lost on Jan 6 and know it.

House of Representatives cancels Thursday (March 4) session over threats from militias

On the 3ed of March, US Capitol Police claimed to have credible intelligence that the 3%'ers (which the FBI mistook for a single militia group) planned to again storm the US Capitol the next day on Thurs, March 4. In the face of the threat, House Democrats moved up a planned vote on the George Floyd Policing Act of 2021 to tonight(March 3) so they could go out of session on March 4 and deny the fascists a target.

Dangerous white supremacists return to Mall

On the 29th of January, dangerous white supremacists returned to DC, marching on the Mall carrying an explicity Fascist modification of the US flag. Barely two weeks after a fascist insurrection stormed the US Capitol they carried their flags on long sticks and set off smoke bombs while chanting racist slogans.There was zero police interference or harassment.

J20: Few fascists show up(and get stripping counterprotest), Trump flies off to Miami like other failed coup plotters

On the 20th of January, the streets were mostly quiet as Trump quit the White House and fled to Miami with the rest of the failed coup plotters. A few brave folks celebrated in the streets but most stayed away fearing an attack from the extreme-right. The hate group "official street preachers" showed up at Union Station but was driven off by counterprotesters stripping in front of them.

Harassing "Pizzagate" conspiracy theorists driven off from Comet Pizza by dance party

On the 19th of January, fundamentalist Christian "Pizzagate" believers attempted to harass Comet Pizza (again...) only to be driven off by a loud dance party. Their slanderous chants were answered with Lady Ga-ga and other dance music, and soon a full-on dance party began. Not long after, the Fundies packed it in, tapped out, and quit the field.

Million Militia march is no-show in face of National Guard

On the 17th of January, the expected armed "Million Militia March" on DC was a no-show. Some organizers had reportedly cancelled, and media folks at their expected assembly areas saw nothing. So far, only in Michigan have armed far-right protesters appeared. One day down,three to go.
