This year’s Independence Day festivities in the nation’s capital will be marked by political activists opposing each other with a “Demand Free Speech” rally, pitting the Proud Boys who rally against Antifa and their ilk, including Black Lives Matter D.C. and Sanctuary DMV. The irony for the Left is thick in that they’ll be protesting against free political speech for conservatives on the day we celebrate political freedom.

The apolitical fireworks fest that typically marks Independence Day in the District of Columbia will be upended this week by protests that include a faceoff between activist groups two days after President Donald Trump addresses the nation from the Lincoln Memorial.
Demonstrations will begin Thursday with a flag burning, a senior citizens’ singalong and the unveiling of “Baby Trump,” a scowling, orange-faced balloon best known for its flights over London protests.
They will continue into Saturday as several right-wing demonstrators, including members of the Western-chauvinist Proud Boys group, host a rally in Freedom Plaza – met by a coalition of progressive groups to show the District is “no place for white supremacists,” organizers of the All Out D.C. counterprotest said.
