The story's hilarious. But it was kind of a jerk move by the hoaxers.

TL;DR = Someone said a protest to take down a monument would happen. Historical preservation protesters showed up. They kicked out guys waving confederate flags because they didn't want trolls ruining the protest.


The event was billed as a showdown with “Antifa,” or anti-fascist, protesters. A Houston branch of the left-wing group had allegedly called for a protest June 10 demanding the removal of the Sam Houston Monument on the grounds that Houston was a slaveholder. That appears to have been a hoax, as the Houston Press previously reported. On Saturday, no Antifa demonstrators showed up, disappointing some of the more than 200 counter-protesters who spoke to the Press.

Instead, organizers of This Is Texas clashed briefly with a small faction of protestors carrying Confederate flags. The organizers kicked the group out of the main demonstration, and the Confederate flag bearers retreated to a different protest site across the street.

“They tried to fight us,” David Amed, who organized the This Is Texas rally, said of the Confederate clique. “They wanted to march through our event.” After he’d kicked them out for the first time, he said, a few of them went around the back and tried to enter again. Amed was furious. He thought he’d made it clear Confederate flags weren’t allowed. “I am not about to have a bunch of hateful racist bastards infiltrate this thing and screw it up,” he said.

That's certainly a colorful slice of America.

It reminds me vaguely of that one episode of Durarara where the guy lured all his enemies to one place. Well, whatever. It's certainly an amusing way for a a demonstration/protest to come about.

in a world where they are staging news and paying/directing protestors what to do...

not to mention the extremists' view--- like if you are not with her/them-- you are a Trump supporter

November 2016 was a horrible election year. The only candidates we can choose from were a crooked hag/political mob boss or a narcissist. ???

I'm tired of having to fact check every single time.. when it's news about politics now a day :/


it's the usual propaganda from the extremists of both sides, well, at least after Comey's testimony they shut up about Russia and moving on to something else about Trump now

I'll read into it when the Clinton News Network is recruiting fighters for ISIS (with creditable evidences now) -- until then it's always funny to see those fake images of Kathy Griffen and the Clinton News Network. It's a stain that will most likely will stay for a long time.

I guess we can give them some credit for knowing a little history.

Haha, that's great. They showed up armed to the teeth to peacefully protest ghost antifa.

Around noon, the rally started to die down. Though some of the attendees alluded to rumors about liberal tycoon George Soros hiring busloads of protesters, some attendees left in their own shuttle buses.

Was that the same protest where one of those Oaf Keepers assaulted some guy holding a pepe sign? And then he got doxxed and exposed for being an illegal.
