The neo-Nazis couldn’t hear themselves over the jeers from more than 500 counter-demonstrators, so they shut down their Orlando rally 90 minutes early and left town.
About 20 members of the National Socialist Movement, some wearing khaki uniforms with swastika armbands, paraded through the historically black Parramore neighborhood on Saturday afternoon.
There was some pushing and shoving, and a fistfight or two. But mostly there were people who showed up to demonstrate that the Orlando community is even better than many of us thought.

Some of the headlines in other papers were disappointingly inaccurate: "Violence erupts in Orlando" and that kind of thing. That's really not what happened here.
