San Francisco Is Latest US City To Brace For Protests
Aug 26, 2017, 01:18
- The National Park Service on Wednesday granted a permit to allow a Patriot Rally at Crissy Field in San Francisco on Saturday.
Despite opposition from the city of San Francisco, Patriot Prayer received a permit from the National Park Service to hold the event. He acknowledges that individuals with extreme views have been attracted to his events in the past and that part of the intention of hosting an event in San Francisco is to show how "extremely intolerant" such liberal cities can be. His guess is also that the people at his rally will be vastly outnumbered by counter-protestors, and it's an educated one: The 33-year-old from Portland, Ore., has organized about a dozen similar events in the last several months.

San Francisco has some dog defenders. Dianne Feinstein and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee objected, saying the rally could lead to deadly violence like that in Charlottesville, Virginia.
