By all appearances, an effort by militant activists to drive racial animosity in South Carolina came up a little short of its intended goal.
Short by 999,997 people, give or take a few.
Self-righteously titled the “Million Person March,” the goal was to rally at 6 a.m. on July 4 in the capital city of Columbia , S.C., and begin marching on the State House at 9:00 a.m. to take down the Confederate flag.
An “anonymous communique” posted on social media pointed out that there will be a “march lead organizer,” and more importantly when it comes to controlling a million people, stressed that “she will have a megaphone.”
One of a very few photos that have surfaced from the event suggests the lead organizer could have left the megaphone at home.
Naturally, when in need of placing blame for their failures, the police are ready-made scapegoats for the race baiters.

In reality, according to The State, several hundred turned out, but it was still far from the lofty goal of 1 million.
