A far-right rally staged near the heavily-guarded Capitol opened and closed Saturday with a modest gathering of demonstrators who appeared at some points outnumbered by police and journalists. Planners for the much-anticipated event had projected up to 700 protesters, but far fewer turned up for an event billed to raise support for hundreds of rioters arrested in the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol assault.
Capitol Police estimated that the gathering numbered up to 450. But that did not account for a legion of journalists who descended on the Union Square plaza along with counter-protesters who joined the group. Organizers and demonstrators immediately attributed the sparse gathering to the heavy security presence, fears of violence and unfounded chatter on social media that the event was designed as a set-up for a new sweep of arrests by law enforcement.
Police reported just four arrests, including an unidentified man with a gun who was spotted about 1:30 p.m., shortly after the gathering broke up. Throughout the 75-minute program, organizer Matt Braynard urged the group to refrain from violent outbursts, as the former Trump campaign staffer and a small number of speakers described most of the Jan. 6 rioters as "political prisoners." A small army of law enforcement, some outfitted in full body armor and riot shields, had been assembled to confront the demonstrators, just eight months after the Capitol building was breached by violent supporters of former President Donald Trump.
Surprise, surprise - the left media and Dems did not encounter nothing to the January 6 madness - it was a big hype promoted by the liberal media.
