The liberal plot to “overthrow” the Trump administration with nationwide protests in every major American city hit one major snag on the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s election: no one showed up.
According to Fox News, organizers planned a weekend’s worth of demonstrations leading up to Election Day 2017, with Antifa activists shutting down traffic and bringing US towns and cities to a virtual stand-still in protest to the Trump “regime.”
The group behind the protests, Refuse Fascism, had “hoped for a million people” to gather in Seattle, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, and other major cities.
The actual numbers were slightly lower; with just 1,000 people turning up to “take town” Trump.
Images of the failed protests emerged on social media, with hundreds of unused signs and placards filling warehouses and staging points as event organizers were forced to admit the lower than expected turn-out.
“It’s just the first day,” said a spokesperson for Refuse Fascism, adding that, “Together, we can scream with purpose and rouse a sleeping giant.”
