A look at the action
WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — As of 8 p.m., hundreds of protesters have gathered outside of the National Press Club where the highly anticipated DeploraBall is taking place.
Leigh Stewy is on-scene and told Intellihub’s Shepard Ambellas that a few people in the crowd have been “maced.”
The crowd is chanting “public space” and “racists […] arrest them Nazis.”
“F**k you Nazi scum,” one person could be heard yelling.
Some of the protesters are with the group Refuse Fascism and are holding up signs.
The police presence in the area is heavy.
DAHBOO77 is live streaming the event:

People can be seen waving various flags and holding up #DisruptJ20 flyers posted on poles.
Some protesters are wearing ski masks and bandanas to hide their identity.
Around 8:31 p.m. protesters could be heard yelling, “F**k Trump!”
8:44 p.m.: A fire starts outside.
Radio talk show host Alex Jones and Roger Stone are set to give speeches inside the building later, which was threatened by radical leftists earlier this week as reported by Infowars contributor Shepard Ambellas.
