Late night on the 14th of November, Proud Boys at a hotel threw two beer cans at a journalist Luke Kuhn, missing with both throws. The jounalist responded to the first terrible throw by making a second pass on the Nazis, and the second miss with a third pass. The third pass the Proud Boys abandoned throwing things as just too difficult for them, and instead charged out to block the streets. The cameraman then accelerated the bike to ram through them but was kicked down and then kicked by 3-5...

Video of fascists, Trumpers, and riot cops at Supreme Court as the estimated 10,000 strong Nov 14 "Million MAGA(t) March" in Washington DC  came through. Proud Boys and other hard fascists pressed against the fence the very police they worship had set up, determined to assault counterprotesters who never asked for police protection. Riot cops face wrong way, shields towards the counterprotesters instead of shields towards the brewing riot. Behind me as I shoot this (but NOT in video...

During the pass through 18th st in Adams-Morgan, marchers opened a lane up the center to let a car out. Police then pounced, pushing through with bike cops followed by cruisers.

A Nov 6 march from the ongoing events at McPherson Square to the White House featured a giant inflatable Trump-headed rat. This is symbolic among other things of Trump's insults about Baltimore and urban residents last year. The count continued as this was written, with Trump fuming about having GOP state legislatures toss out the votes and submit GOP electors anyway. Taking the election away from Biden by having states throw away votes already cast and just submit the choices of GOP state...

On the 4th of November, one of the speakers at the Count Every Vote rally in DC's McPherson Square was from Uganda. She told the story of how dictator Yoweri Museveni interfered forcibly in his opponent's efforts to unseat him in the 2016 election there. This story in this context compares Trump and his election interference to the disputed elections seen all over the rest of the world. So much for US exceptionalism!

The Oct 17 Women's March targetted both Trump and Amy Coney Barrett as unfit for office, and had as its focus the efforts to vote Trump out of office(if possible...). The march drew both Trumper and antichoice counterprotesters. These in turn drew a counter-counter protest by young activists. Heated debates ensued, with right-wing signs blocked and at least two antichoice signs painted over. The counterprotesters seemed broken into two factions: the antichoice theocrats were more numerous and...
