A Patriot Front march in Philly didn’t go the way the group hoped when they had to flee angry counter-protesters.

A white supremacist group based in Texas attempted a march on Philadelphia over the Independence Day weekend but had to celebrate the holiday the Confederate way.

“They literally ran away from the people of Philadelphia,” Michael Crum, a police officer in the city, told local ABC station WPVI.

About 200 masked and khaki-clad members of the Patriot Front organization, listed as a white nationalist hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, marched on the city in the Saturday night incident, NBC Philadelphia reported.

They chanted about the election and “reclaim America,” engaged in pushing and shoving with people, and took a reporter’s cellphone, the station said. 

But that boldness quickly faded as more residents turned out.
