Texas White Supremacists get Chased out of Philadelphia

Not sure what they were thinking. But it didn’t end well:

Members of a white supremacist group marching through Philadelphia on Saturday evening “ran away” from city residents who confronted them, according to police.

Demonstrators, who police said were from out of town and were reportedly members of the Texas-based Patriots Front, chanted while holding American flags and shields as they made their way from Ben Franklin Parkway to Penn’s Landing, according to WPVI, an ABC affiliate.

Photos from the scene showed the group carrying a banner that said “Reclaim America.”

…”They started engaging with citizens of Philadelphia, who were none too happy about what they were saying. These males felt threatened, and at one point, somebody threw a smoke bomb to cover their retreat, and they literally ran away from the people of Philadelphia,” Philadelphia Police Officer Michael Crum told reporters.
