The Million MAGA March was held today (November 14) in Washington DC drawing thousands of participants from different states and organizations. MAGA-hatted demonstrators were joined by members of far-right groups, including the Proud Boys, some of whom were wearing helmets and bullet-proof vests.
The Proud Boys were present at the event throughout; marching and chanting slogans typically used by left-wing protesters but with a Trump theme: “Say His Name, Donald Trump,” “Fuck Antifa,” and “All commies are bastards, whose streets? Our streets.” The Proud Boys were also seen performing an initiation for a new member later in the evening.

Later in the evening anti Trump protesters concentrated around the hotels where reportedly Maga and Proud boys were staying.
