Over 28 nationwide protests are planned in major cities in America, Saturday, June 10. Most of the protests are based around "anti-sharia" protests and counter-protests, but some are a bit nuttier.
The massive "March Against Sharia" protests are being organized by Act For America (ACT,) an anti-Muslim organization whose founder believes that devout Muslims cannot be true citizens of the United States and should be ineligible from holding public office.
I'll be covering these events live on my Twitter account @SnarkyCop.
The organization has been branding itself as a group which protects Muslim women and children from the dangers of sharia law, and defends national security.
The marches have attracted many patriots who oppose sharia's conflicts with law and the constitution.
Also, because the organization is anti-Muslim, the anti-sharia march has attracted hate groups, including some actual neo-Nazis and white nationalists.
ACT was forced to cancel their Batesville, Arkansas event after they learned that the event was being organized by a neo-nazi group.
Then there are the counter-protesters. Because Antifa thinks that anybody right of Hillary Clinton is an actual Nazi, they have also have a large presence in many large cities to counter-protest all of the "Nazis", whether there are any actual neo-nazis at those individual events or not.
In addition, peaceful anti-discrimination groups are counter-protesting the anti-sharia marches.
Finally, there are the internet trolls who may or may not actually be legitimately protesting anything, but are certainty trying to antagonize the nutjobs in Antifa.

Also going on today is an anti-anti-Sam Houston counter-protest. An internet troll created a "Texas Antifa" Facebook account and started antagonizing people, saying that they were going to take down Houston's Sam Houston statue on June 10th. A surprisingly large number of right-wing groups in the area then organized a response for the non-existent attack on the statue.
Somewhere right now, there's an internet troll patting themselves on the back.
