Prediction: the marches will be hijacked by radicals in the BLM groups and infiltrated by violent right-wing rabble-rousers.

I see Trump's/Putin's hands all over this.

That is the danger. It failed yesterday thanks to the Washington Police who quickly arrested the violent splinter group allowing thousands to march in peace. Because of the inauguration at the same time, they got little coverage, really the only statement I heard about it was from the police chief.

Let's hope police everywhere will be as astute as the Washingtonians were.

The protestors are also aware of this possibility. I've seen a lot of Facebook posts about strategies to handle this kind of problem. I hope they're effective.

It's too bad these outstanding police don't have a time machine. They could have easily squelched The Boston Tea Party.

So far, so good.

We have juge crowds, the jugest crowds. Complete diversity (unlike the inauguration) and much greater in numbers than inauguration attendees.

I am watching Madonna saying "to wake the fuck up".

These protests are all over the globe, it is so amazing.

So?

We have political power.

Go ahead and have your protests while I watch Fox News as republicans fix this country from the damage brought on by Barack Hussein Osama bin Biden.

They were expecting 25,000 people in Washington and they got 125,000.
