Everyone online is LOLing at the cast of characters that showed up to this alt-right rally in Texas

These dudes have some interesting defenses against the antifa.

It’s Saturday, so you have time to do the things you love: linger at a coffee shop, devour a magazine, or dress up in Daft Punk cosplay and ancient Roman legionnaire armor to fight the rise of socialism in Texas.

Hey. You do you.

Evan Mintz, of the Houston Chronicle, is at an anti-Antifa (how meta) protest at Hermann Park, in Houston, and let’s just say it is a cast of characters. The protest is aimed at supposed Antifa members who, after the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in New Orleans, are emboldened and want to take down a Sam Houston statue. Not only are the members of This is Texas armed, they are interesting.

Though those people are interesting enough on their own, the brunt of the scorn online is being directed at this dude, who wore Roman armor because the Antifa has knives.

The trolling is coming hard and fast.

As for whether that armor will save him, well…

He’ll do fine against cats.
