San Francisco Patriot Prayer Rally Sees Dog Turd Counter Protest Planned

Now they are back for a weekend of provocations on Saturday, August 26 in San Francisco and Sunday, August 27 in Berkeley. Almost every San Francisco police officer will be on duty on Saturday.

"The shameful, anti-American trend of hate-filled extremist rallies will unfortunately be allowed to continue this weekend in our city", Lee said in a written statement. Counter events - from planning dances, distributing flowers to convening clowns - have popped up.

He went home and created a Facebook event, inviting 15 of his friends to walk their dogs in Crissy Field on Saturday and leave their pets' waste behind.

Police in San Francisco are bracing for possible conflict Saturday when a group called Patriot Prayer hosts a "freedom rally" at Crissy Field near the foot of the Golden Gate to the dismay of Mayor Ed Lee and other Democrats who say the group invites hate. "It seemed like a little bit of civil disobedience where we didn't have to engage with them face to face".

It's a characterization that Patriot Prayer's founder Joey Gibson vehemently disputes.

Organisers of both demonstrations have said the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists are not welcome.

Mr Gibson points out that he is himself mixed race.

U.S. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, in a written statement, slammed the Patriot Prayer gathering as a risky "white supremacist rally".

She added that "we must all pray it does not become an invitation to incite violence".

The Galaxy Note8 comes in Midnight Black, Maple Gold, Orchid Grey, and Deep Sea Blue, depending on the market. Connectivity on the smartphone includes NFC and MST for Samsung Pay, and offers USB Type-C charging port.

Nonetheless, extremist groups have attended previous Patriot Prayer events. Let's not have violence.

"And now they're going to give it as a venue to Nazis and white nationalists", Pelosi said. This is an opportunity for moderate Americans to come in with opposing views. "That stuff gets on film and we send that film out so the country can see, they can see the insanity".

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, does not classify Patriot Prayer in those terms.

"Patriot Prayer has always been about going into these areas where people are too afraid to speak out and speak up".

"We are guided by the Constitution, the law, longstanding court precedent, and National Park Service policy, which tells us we must be deliberative and not preemptive in our decisions related to First Amendment gatherings", National Park Service officials said last week in a statement.

He called Portland an intolerant city.

Ahead of the Saturday's events, the National Park Service has developed a security plan that "includes closing the area around Crissy Field to vehicles and bicycles, from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Palace of Fine Arts, and allowing pedestrians to enter only at the Marina Boulevard Gate at Mason Street", SFGate reports.

"We can not deny a permit to anyone planning to exercise their First Amendment rights based on their political stance or beliefs", the NPS stated.

Heavy restrictions were placed upon participants: no guns or weapons of any kind, no flagpoles, helmets, shields, pepper spray, or even selfie sticks will be permitted, SPLC reported.
