Less is #MOAR: Laughable Turnout Shows Up for Alt-Right’s “Mother of All Rallies” on DC Mall

The alt-rights pro-Donald Trump demonstration in Washington D.C. on Saturday “The Mother of All Rallies” reportedly saw laughably pathetic turnout numbering  about 150 people including  the rally’s leaders.

The purpose of Saturday’s event was to show united support behind Donald Trump and “American culture,” and while the event’s website claimed, “We condemn racists of all colors and supremacy of all colors,” one attendee was seen wearing a shirt reading, “Guilty of being white.”

Last month, the National Park Service in Washington said it believed Saturday would turn out to one of its busiest days of the year as some 30 events were set to compete for space and attention on federal park land throughout the city. Initially organizers behind the “Mother of All Rallies” had estimated that thousands of people would descend on the nation’s capital for their event. In fact, the rally, which promoters billed as the “Woodstock of American Rallies,” was expected to be one of the day’s biggest and most noteworthy events with some 2,000 people marking themselves as “going” on the event’s Facebook page. Another 6,000 people were marked as “interested” in attending.

There were larger crowds at the National Organization for Marriages’s Summer for Marriage.
