Send Out the Clowns!

Participants in the second annual “March 4 Trump” in Austin were met with the scariest form of resistance: clowns.

Calling themselves the LOLt-Right Marching Band, these clowns showed up with costumes and kazoos to confuse and roast the Trump supporters. Fun fact: these clowns were trained in nonviolent, de-escalation tactics to help people channel their energy in safe and affirming ways in the face of hatred.

You can follow these clowns’ shenanigans on Twitter: @loltrightband. And support the Clown Resistance through their GoFundMe page.

  1. A big a-OOOGAH Thank You! to the LOLt-Right Marching Band! Y’all made us smile at a pro-Trump event on a drizzly afternoon. Who’d a thunk it?

  2. I saw an announcement on Facebook of an event on Saturday from 2-6 pm by the group Auntiefa. It touched something deep inside me. I need to bake cookies and give them to angry, shouty people.
    Please tell me this event is real.
