Organizers said they canceled Saturday's planned right-wing rally in San Francisco because of safety concerns.
Joey Gibson, founder of the Patriot Prayer group, in a Facebook Live post said that his group had been working with police and “decided that tomorrow really seems like a setup.”
“It doesn’t seem safe, a lot of people’s lives are going to be in danger tomorrow,” he said during an interview with Unite America First. “The rhetoric from Nancy Pelosi, Mayor [Ed] Lee, the media – all these people are saying we are white supremacists and it's bringing in tons of extremists. It just seems like a huge setup, so we just decided that we are going to take the opportunity and not fall into that trap and we are not going to go down there. We are not going to have a rally at Crissy Field.”
