Anti-Muslim Group Cancels Hate Rallies, Reschedules Them To Occur Online

Extremist group ACT for America cancels "America First" rallies in 36 states. 

The pro-Trump, anti-Muslim group cited recent violence in Charlottesville as one reason for calling off 67 demonstrations planned for September 9. In a statement to hard-right media outlet Breitbart, they said:

ACT for America is deeply saddened that in today’s divisive climate, citizens cannot peacefully express their opinion without risk of physical harm from terror groups domestic and international.

Sad!

Despite attempts to appear peaceful compared to other extremist groups such as "Neo-Nazis, Antifa, the KKK, and ISIS inspired individuals and groups," this is the same organization that held "March Against Shariah" events across the country in June, attracting armed militia groups and other members from the alt-right.

Apparently, some Americans should be freer than others:

The group wants to isolate itself from those other white supremacist organizations. More from their statement:

 In recent weeks, extremist and radical organizations in the United States and abroad have overrun peaceful events in order to advance their own agendas, and in many cases, violence has been the result.

A digital rally is planned for September 9, though the organization hasn't provided further information.

Will anyone show? Anyone?

The hundred or so pro-Trump demonstrators who showed up for a rally in Boston last weekend were eclipsed by anti-fascist counter-protesters, with estimates placing the crowd somewhere between 15,000 and 40, 000. 

Some suggested the Boston turnout intimidated potential ACT demonstrators:
