Thousands of protesters descended on Washington DC Saturday in what was supposed to be a march for stricter gun laws.
For many it was of a march for hate.
One activist carried a sign that not only attacked the NRA and Sen. Marco Rubio, but Catholic’s everywhere.

Rubio later posted a statement on Twitter that drew more ire from his haters.

Sorry Sen these are hollow words from a man who took millions of @NRA money. Your vote is bought and paid for.

Show your commitment to finding common ground, level the playing field, return past, present and refuse future NRA donations so the world knows you’re not biased nor an NRA stooge. Until then, step off.

Others questioned the motives of those attacking.
Why don’t those cowards criticize Islam the way they do Christianity … it’s almost like they know they’ll be completely safe while lambasting Christianity … hmmm?

Why aren’t folks taking the fight to soros who funds and organizes this shit? He should be agitated continuously wherever he is.

Protesters like those holding this sign have no moral ground to stand on. Supposedly marching for a virtuous cause but clearly promoting hate.
