Additional federal forces — including camouflaged FBI tactical teams — were seen nearby providing support and prepared to deploy if needed.
The protest crowd Sunday night was mostly black — but not exclusively. It was also dominated by far left-wing types. Communist flags and lots of graffiti were clearly visible. And there was a lot of anti-Trump sentiment.
Sadly, as these protests progress, it becomes more clear that they are as much anti-Trump as they are about George Floyd.
Some supposed ‘white’ agitators were actually Hispanics. While there were many peaceful protesters — anger and violence were also strongly felt. Some protesters seemed local to DC, but others were from neighboring states such as Maryland.
At least some elements of these protests were organized, as there were support teams with water and supplies, including milk to flush out tear gas and pepper spray from eyes — posted throughout the area. Meanwhile, I saw at least two protester “medics” wearing tactical helmets and vests donning red crosses carrying hurt protesters to safety.
It is the worst protest I’ve seen in DC. Let’s see what today and the next few days will produce. More to come.
