Protesters Confront White Nationalists At DC Restaurant
Maggiano’s restaurant in Washingotn, DC is facing some controversy after allowing a white nationalist group to hold an event there. Several people who attended the National Policy Institute dinner reportedly tweeted out pictures of themselves making “Sieg Heil” salutes. NPI has come under scrutiny for opposing multiculturalism, and it wasn’t long before protesters learned of the dinner and mobilized to the location. Protesters rushed the restaurant Friday night, and later staged a demonstration outside. Maggiano’s Little Italy has since released a statement saying the reservation was made under a different name, adding “we were not aware that NPI was dining with us or what the group represents.”
