Published

on

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.
