Seems it is also linked to airbnb hosts themselves wanting to protect themselves and prevent any potential safety issues to their neighbourhoods. makes sense as many probably hosted protestors and made that mistake during last week's riots.

Mayor Bowser requests more resources, and residents ask each other not to rent their homes.
"D.C. residents are also readying for the return of extremists. The hashtag #DontRentDC is trending on Twitter, as residents ask short-term rental hosts to keep their properties vacant this weekend through the end of inaugural activities. Richard Bianco, a D.C. attorney who primarily represents small landlords, is among those advising local hosts against booking.

“Don’t make a decision that is high risk, low reward,” says Bianco. “You’re potentially exchanging getting a couple of hundred bucks for your Airbnb over the course of a few days during the inauguration. And you’re potentially putting your neighbors at risk, your neighborhood at risk, by renting to people who intend to do harm.”
#DontRentDC is common sense, protecting your neighborhood and business.

But imagine an airline refusing to let people board because there will be a championship game and fans will riot and damage the city after their team wins the game. It might have a moral base, but how can you tell a rioter from a non-violent citizen? What data do they need to make the right guess? Bad data means bad guesses, good data means......thanks for GDPR.

I know GDPR theoretically does not apply to CH, but lots of business already apply it because our customers on the EU. No sense in having two systems in the company.
