The marches come amid a rise in reports of anti-Muslim incidents in the U.S., including arson attacks and vandalism at mosques, harassment of women wearing Muslim head coverings and bullying of Muslim schoolchildren.

But it was noisy, with groups chanting, yelling and waving American flags and posters proclaiming various issues.

"There's an anti-Trump, a pro-Trump, anti-extremists, so there are a variety of messages here", San Bernardino police spokeswoman Eileen Hards said.

"Again, it shows that the idea here is hate groups like Act For America know exactly what they're doing", said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of CAIR. Across the honking traffic were many who interpreted the message from a different angle.
