Trump supporters wave ‘ban homo marriage’ and ‘coming for Blacks and Indians’ signs at Washington MAGA march
Trump supporters at a Washington Million MAGA March brought signs reading “ban homo marriage” and “coming for Blacks and Indians first”.
The Million MAGA March in Washington DC on Saturday (14 November) saw droves of Trump supporters take to the streets to back the president’s debunked and baseless claims that the election was “rigged” and “fraudulent”.
Thousands MAGA hat-wearing protesters were joined at the rally by members of violent, homophobic far-right groups such as the Proud Boys, many of whom wore T-shirts emblazoned with the phrase “stand back, stand by”.
But some of the placards brought by protesters were so shocking, that they even “disturbed” a Fox News anchor.
In the middle of an interview with Mike Allen, co-founder of the US news website AXIOS, Fox anchor Eric Shawn interrupted: “We just saw a very disturbing sign, it said ‘Coming for Blacks and Indians, welcome to the new world order’.”
Frazzled, he added: “I mean, who the hell knows, you know, what people have, and what they will say about those things.”

Another placard that also appeared during the broadcast read: “Make America great again: Ban homo marriage.”
Donald Trump drove through the march, waving to protesters. Later, violence broke out between his supporters and counter protesters, and officials told the BBC that 20 people were arrested on charges including assault and weapons possession. One stabbing was reported.
Despite claims by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany that the Million MAGA March drew “more than one MILLION marchers”, the actual estimated turnout was around 10,000.
