“Just when you thought last weekend’s gathering of white supremacists couldn’t make D.C. residents more infuriated, the city has shown up with the tab.
According to The Washingtonian, Jason Kessler’s sparsely-attended “Unite the Right 2” rally cost the city $2.6 million, accounting for road closures, cleanup, and the 1,000-plus law enforcement officers who were on hand to keep the peace over the weekend.
If one assumes there were roughly 30 far-right demonstrators at the rally — which is a generous assumption — it would mean the district spent nearly $87,000 per attendee. In comparison, Washington, D.C. spent an average of $34,500 per homeless person in 2017. Break it down, and the money spent on Kessler would be enough to support 75 homeless people for an entire year.”
