San Francisco Is Latest US City To Brace For Protests

- 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.

A shit storm awaits a bunch of far-right protestors when they convene in San Francisco this weekend - locals are storing up their doggy do-do and plan to distribute it in the area the protestors are holding the rally.

Organizers from both events have said they don't promote hate speech and that extremists, KKK, Nazis and white supremacists aren't welcome at their events.

The Southern Poverty Law Center does not list Patriot Prayer as a hate group but has noted that some of its events have included white nationalist organizations.

"We can not deny a permit to anyone planning to exercise their First Amendment rights based on their political stance or beliefs", Acting General Superintendent Cicely Muldoon said in a statement.

"It's not just skin color or gender, I'm talking about tolerance of speech", said Gibson, who is Japanese-American.

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.

The deal is already approved by both boards and expected to close in 1Q 2018 and have an effective date of July 1 2017. Moreover, the deal adds significant volumes to the North Sea reserve base.

According to the permit conditions, prohibited items in the rally area include guns, weapons of any kind, explosives, toy guns, helmets, drones, mace, pepper spray and selfie sticks. "That stuff gets on film and we send that film out so the country can see, they can see the insanity".

Patriot Prayer's organizer, Joey Gibson, takes issue to his organization being called a white supremacist or racist group.

Yet, there are calls by counterprotesters for people to join them in force at Crissy Field to "send a message that hate has no safe space" in the city.

While Patriot Prayer "Freedom Rally" activists will be offered flowers to wear in their hair by peace activists, they will also be met by an installation of excrement organised by a local artist.

A Facebook event page for "Leave your dog poop on Crissy Field", which encouraged people to "Take your dog to Crissy Field and let them do their business and be sure not to clean it up!" had drawn almost a thousand attendees as of Thursday afternoon - and plenty of pushback.

However, city officials denied that group a permit, putting the event in jeopardy.

"Maybe people are risking their safety, but shouldn't people have risked their safety early on in the Nazi regime when Hitler came to power?" "Berkeley is a ground zero for the Marxist Movement and we need to speak out and say NO to Marxism", the event's page said. You want a brawl, violent provocation.
