The “Unite the Right 2” rally ended up being a big bust for white supremacists. Organizers had predicted hundreds of people would attend, and in the end only somewhere between 20 and 30 people showed up.

After around two hours, the rally ended and police escorted the demonstrators back to Virginia.
