What a difference a year makes. On the anniversary of the violent clashes between the alt-right white nationalist and counter protesters in Charlottesville that left one woman, Heather Heyer, dead, the Donald Trump loving Neo Nazi's seemed to be losing their momentum. Either that, or they are simply scared.


After much fan fair and hype, the alt-right rally fizzled and limped to a sad close after only gathering a couple dozen supporters on Sunday in Washington D.C. Jason Kessler and small number of his followers wearing Make America Great Again hats were vastly outnumbered by counter-protesters chanting "Nazi's Go Home" and "Heather's Not Forgotten."

Kessler, the white supremacist who organized last years Charlottesville march and this one, thought the low numbers were because of confusion over logistics and transportation, but one unidentified man who spoke with CNN clarified by saying:

People are scared to come out after what happened last year.

With a strong media presence covering the event, and footage taken from citizens there was amble video posted on social media. In much of the video it appears police needed to act as a protective barrier between the large number of protesters and the small number of alt-right marchers.



Kessler's every move was tracked.


He was met with loud protests and chants everywhere he went.






By the time the rally happened it was lackluster showing.


Apparently the Nazi's and the White Supremacist are fighting among themselves.



Many folks were getting a kick out of the low turn-out and the public shaming.




When the rally ended cheers could be heard from the crowd.


Let's hope we don't hear anymore from Kessler for a long time, or ever.
