Hundreds of thousands of Americans across the country are marching against our body’s bans in protest that cable news has largely ignored.
There are amazing scenes and signs across the country:

The protest is not just a big city event. Hundreds of people gathered in Idaho:

Apparently attacking the government and killing people is what it takes to get the media to care, as there have been many segments about Donald Trump endorsing a coup insurgent in Pennsylvania.
Five white people carry a Trump sign down any street and reporters flock, but hundreds of thousands of people are protesting the theft of the rights of a majority of the population, and the story is considered the fourth most important of a Saturday.
Bias is not visible in words, but also in actions.
As Sarah Jones of PoliticusUSA said:
Today: FUCK PEACEFUL PROTESTS against the theft of our freedom
1/6: an act of domestic terrorism for something that did not happen
Stop treating women like we’re armed insurgents while you coddle MAGA terrorists.
