[Ed. – Moral of the story: don’t do stupid protests. If it’s not important enough to stand your ground over, don’t participate.]
On Saturday, armed members of the New Black Panther Party faced off against a smaller group of armed protesters at a Nation of Islam mosque in Dallas, Texas,BizPac Review reported.
According to the Dallas Morning News, police kept the two factions apart:
A few hundred South Dallas residents, mostly black, flooded Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to oppose a planned demonstration by a mostly white group that routinely protests outside mosques. …
Protesters from the Bureau of American Islamic Relations (BAIR) [i.e., the anti-Islam protesters – Ed.] planned the protest for 1 p.m., but eventually left when they realized they were outnumbered.
