Socialist Movement protest in Houston, Texas counter-protested by American Patriotic Vanguard

Houston, Texas – The Houston Socialist Movement went downtown today to protest Governor Greg Abbott’s State of the State address at the Hilton Americas Downtown.  A counter-protest, hosted by the American Patriotic Vanguard, showed up an hour earlier than the planned Houston Socialist Movement and took over prime real estate in front of the hotel, leaving the Socialists to stage across the street on a small corner.  About 30 Socialists showed up and stood across the street from a dozen Patriots to shout their one-note chant.  There was little protest of Governor Abbott, instead they were distracted by the trolling of the American Patriotic Vanguard.

I went downtown to check it out…here is the video:

Unfocused, easily-trolled, disorganized, and foul-mouthed…exactly what I expected from a Socialist movement.  And a special thanks to the Houston Police Department for watching over the public and making sure this protest didn’t degrade into a free-for-all.Product Block - Frosty

Editor’s note:  It looked like there were more police downtown than protesters.  I was waiting for the mounted units to come charging in like the Cavalry…but luckily, it didn’t happen.  Stay frosty!
