Masked, Far-Right Patriot Front Members March in D.C., Get Booed by Bystanders

HeadlineDec 06, 2021

In Washington, D.C., over 100 masked white supremacists from the Patriot Front paraded in front of the Lincoln Memorial and on the National Mall Saturday evening. The demonstrators wore matching blue jackets, white neck gaiters, brown boots and hats — and khaki pants similar to those worn by far-right protesters in 2017’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. They held shields, upside-down U.S. flags, and a banner that said “Reclaim America.” Bystanders booed as the leader of the hate group gave a speech. Over two dozen participants reportedly found themselves stranded after the bizarre display, when their ride, a rented U-Haul truck, was not able to fit all of them inside.
