Only a few dozen Nazis or white supremacists surfaced for Sunday’s Unite the Right rally in Washington, DC. Despite planning for as many as 400 people, organizer Jason Kessler was unable to gether little more than a garden party of attendees. Still, Washington bars and restaurants were prepared for the hefty hundreds promised.

As the Washington City Paper reported, several establishments in the city posted positive and affirming photos on their social media in preparation for the weekend of racists.

“Mosquitoes aren’t the only pests we’re trying to keep off our patio. Although, they are significantly harder to punch in the face,” wrote The Commodore Public House & Kitchen near Logan Circle.

“We love our diverse city and industry,” The Bird wrote on Facebook. “We love, appreciate, and will defend our diverse staff and guests. We welcome all with love, but hate does not get service here.”

He went on to urge those in town to visit the African American History Museum and U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum as well as a few other sites.

“Free popcorn except for Nazis, they can go f*ck themselves,” a chalkboard said outside of Kingfisher Bar and Grill on 14th Street.

You can see a few photos below, see the full list at the Washington City Paper.

In 2016, then-anti-Trump Republican Sen. Linsey Graham proclaimed, "If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed.......and we will deserve it." It seems his prediction is coming closer to fruition.

Financial reporting reveals that the Republican Party was forced to send $1.3 million to ruby-red Texas as the election nears.

It was something spotted by ProPublica developer and ex-reporter Derek Willis Sunday.

"That's never happened before," he tweeted.

He noted that the Texas GOP raised $3.3 million in August, but nearly half of that came from their national parents.

It's hard to imagine how 2020 could possibly get worse. "If we lose Betty White," a friend said on a drive to the Supreme Court to lay flowers.

So many Americans have lost friends or family members to COVID-19. Thousands of Americans survived the virus only to desperately needed organ transplants and forever will struggle to breathe the way they once did. Others are still suffering without smell or taste even three months after having the virus. Millions of Americans are out of work. Debt is stacking up for those trying to survive in the COVID economy. A lack of health insurance can mean hospitalizations from the virus are putting people into bankruptcy.

Stop trying to convince people you’re right — it will never persuade anyone: expert

MSNBC host Joshua Johnson noted that this year has been full of strife, with Americans having a lot to stand up about. Whether the slaying of unarmed Black men and police brutality, or healthcare, and the coronavirus, Americans are lining up to protest.

Johnson asked if people try to start tough conversations, how do they keep it productive, and when it's time to give up. In her book, We Need to Talk, Celest Headlee explains tools that people can use to have productive conversations about tough issues that help move the needle.

"Keep in mind that a protest isn't a conversation, right?" she first began. "That's a different kind of communication. The first thing is that our goal in conversations is not always a productive one. In other words, oftentimes, we go into these conversations hoping to change somebody's mind or convince them that they are wrong. You're just never going to accomplish that. There's no evidence. We haven't been able to -- through years and years of research we haven't been able to find evidence that over a conversation somebody said, 'You're right, I was completely wrong.' You've convinced me. So, we have to stop trying to do that. We have to find a new purpose for those conversations."
