Philadelphia taxi drivers reportedly refused to pick up white supremacists after anti-racist protesters outnumbered them Saturday at a far-right rally in the City of Brotherly Love.
About 24 members of alt-right groups showed up for the “We the People Rally” to denounce their anti-racist opponents, the Huffington Post reported.
However, hundreds of counter-protests confronted the racists in the Center City section of Philadelphia. Standing behind a police barricade, the anti-racist protesters yelled “Go home assholes” to the group of extremists and held signs that read “Make Racists Afraid Again.”
Members of the Proud Boys, a violent racist organization that participated in the 2017 Charlottesville rally, were reportedly among the two-dozen white supremacists.
The Southern Law Poverty Center has called it a hate group. On October 12, Proud Boys members were involved in a brawl outside the Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan, where its founder Gavin McInnes gave a speech.
But outnumber on Saturday, they just wanted to get as far away as possible from the counter-protesters. However, that wasn’t so easy because taxi drivers refused to give them a ride.
Twitter had a lot of fun with that piece of news:
