Antifa protest MPD free speech violations as alt-right stages dueling "free speech" rallies

On the 25th of June, the so-called "Proud boys," Richard Spencer, and Identity Evropa held a "free speech" protest on the Mall peddling a narrative that anti-fascists (antifa) oppose free speech. Rejecting the bait, anti-fascists descended instead on MPD's headquarters to condemn police violations of free speech rights such as the efforts to imprison Inauguration protesters for up to 80 years. A second counterprotest held the high ground over the fascists on the Lincoln Memorial steps, and a second fascist rally took place at the White House

Ninth Circuit slaps down Trump's Muslim Ban on appeal

On the 12th of June, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit refused to reinstate the revised version of Trump's Muslim ban/travel ban. It didn't help Donald Trump that he had opened his mouth on Twitter to say things contradicting the legal arguments for his "revised" travel ban.

Nazis fail in attempt to shut down "Against the Fascist Creep" author talk at Potter's House

On the 2nd of June, the author of the book "Against the Fascist Creep" held a discussion at the Potter's House about the history of fascism and how it relates to current events. Four neo-Nazis in MAGA hats showed up and barged in. Antifascists posted guards all around the Nazis and photographed them. Meanwhile the free speech about the history of fascism kept right on going as though the Nazis were safely in a cage at Nuremburg.

Jack Posobiec sends fake "anarchists" with pro-censorship signs to net neutrality protest

On the 18th of May, activists holding a sit-in and rally at FCC headquarters for net neutrality noticed several folks trying to pose as anarchists, with signs calling for banning far-right websites. This message was in direct conflict with net neutrality. Jack Posobiec streamed this fake news of planted signs onto Twitter via their "periscope" service.

Boston neo-Nazi "Proud boys" rally humiliated by larger counterprotest

The neo-Nazi "free speech rally" of the so-called "Proud boys" and "based stickman" in Boston turned into an embarassing defeat for the facists. Some right-wing reporter known to hang with "based stickman" is whining about being "assaulted," for a while there were only about 100 of the "proud boys" present. Counterprotesters held the ridge above the fascists, two arrests reported.

Reportbacks from Mayday

DC's Mayday march was a two-part affair, beginning with an immigrant march from Mount Pleasant that linked up with a worker's march at Malcolm X Part before continuing to Freedom Plaza and a much larger immigrant rally at the White House. A third march started at Dupont Circle and proceeded directly to Lafayette Park. The Worker's March was marred by harassment from both neo-Nazis and police. Two protesters were detained but both were released as police could not find or fake any kind of probable cause.

Neo-Nazi disrupts Antifa event, bystander arrested after intervening

On the 23rd of April, DC area antifascists held a public outreach event at GW University after a failed neo-nazi "night of the flier" did not post any of their threatened racist fliers. Neo-Nazi Jack Posobiec and one of his friends showed up and walked up to disrupt the event with shouting. Posobiec tempted a bike messenger who came to the area as part of an Alleycat ride into a fight, then had him arrested.

Richard Spencer's Nazi "anti war" protest chased from Lafayette Park

Update:Report of "25 loud drunks" at Spencer's home night after this event chanting "Heil Bannon"

On the 8th of April, Richard Spencer and his neo-Nazi friends tried to exploit the Syrian crisis by holding a so-called "antiwar protest" at the White House. They were confronted by a larger crew of anti-Fascist protesters. As darkness fell, someone threw glitter on Richard Spencer as he began trying to escape with his crew. Then all hell broke loose-and Spencer had to run for it. Part of the anti-Fascist crew had to retreat because of the glitter incident, but other chased Richard Spencer to his taxi, from which he was ejected.

Anti-Trans bigots at GW draws larger counterprotest, Hate Bus stays other side of town

Update 4-4-2017:NOM published photo of hate bus at US Capitol, this was apparently as close to GW as they dared to approach.Not sure when photo taken either.

On the 3rd of April, NOM's so-called "Free Speech Bus" also known as the "hate bus" for anti-Trangender images on its sides was due to appear in DC. A few anti-Transgender bigots showed up at George Washington University and attracted a student counterprotest leavened with counterinaugural veterans. They left after about an hour, with nobody having found the "Hate Bus," and were from an apparently unrelated group. There was no mention on NOM's twitter feed of even arriving in DC.

Veritas/O'Keefe thugs get 15 CA felony charges for edited/deceptive video attack on Planned Parenthood

Two undercover videographers from O'Keefe's Project Veritas have been charged in California with 15 felonies for violating the state's strict two-party consent rule for wiretapping in their video sting against Planned Parenthood. Project Veritas released a whiny statement condemning the law itself, but they can "tell it to the judge."

Tell it to the judge, surely he can "bring it on" for you
