According to our sources on the ground in Washington, DC, a shockingly small number of Republicans – not to mention congressional Republicans – turned out for the “Justice for J6” Rally today near the Capitol. In fact, there were more police and media than there were rallygoers.
“Demonstrators at the Justice for J6 rally blasted Republicans in Congress for their refusal to attend Saturday’s demonstration billed by organizers as a civil rights assembly,” according to The Washington Times. [emphasis added]
“The rally, led by former Trump campaign operative Matt Braynard, was attended by roughly 400 to 450 protesters and members of the press, but sitting lawmakers were noticeably absent. [emphasis added]
“Though the event brought in far fewer people than anticipated, the absence of any officeholders was met with fury by attendants who thought members were ignoring their cause.
“‘Where’s McCarthy? Where’s McConnell? They’re all useless,’ one demonstrator in the crowd yelled. [emphasis added]
“Steve Merkel of Baltimore who attended the rally called Republicans ‘cowards,’ and said it was wrong that no one came out to support nonviolent offenders charged over the riot.” [emphasis added]
