    Incitement, Libel/Slander, Obscenity, "Fighting Words"...all categories of speech of that are not protected. Running around shouting racial epithets is not protected speech.

    This is funny, because while I somewhat support the actual cause I loathe the group protesting.

    He's taking them to a dark place electorally that they're rightfully afraid of. You can't turn to white men over and over again and expect to continue winning elections...especially if Trump backlash gives the Democrats enough muscle to shred gerrymandering.

    I think it goes beyond electoral strategy-- members of the GOP are genuinely appalled by these Neo Nazis.

    I'm not sure there is anything beyond winning for these guys.

    Here's the way I see it, the white supremacist idiots went there using the statue of Lee being removed as a pretext to spew their racist hatred of everything. They came prepared to "protest" violently and brazenly displayed their weapons in an intimidation attempt. A few leftist groups bused in willing to oblige them if they got violent. The cops didn't do a good job of keeping the two groups separated. The knuckle draggers were dismissed to the park they were supposed to be at in the first place, not emancipation (Lee) park. With no real direction (or due to being brainless) the supremacists meandered about aimlessly until some of them had the brilliant idea of mowing down people in a crowd on a blocked off street. Now I ask you, how is that any different from one of these radicals from the middle east mowing down people at a market?

    I agree there's is not much beyond winning -- but Nazis might test the limit for most.

    Middle east radicals are rightly called called terrorists. White radicals in America are just members of a side. Can't we try to get along, or ideally, love them?

    If So, ya, I can get behind that.

    The fact that it's skinhead racists doing the protesting sours it for me though.

    They were chanting blood and soil, white lives matter, and Jews will not replace us. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say their cause wasn't really the statue.

    Ya, I figured as much.

    Like I said, the cause is decent enough, but the people doing the protesting and the the filth they bring with them kind of paints all of it in a bad light.

    I support not tearing down the statue of general lee.

    Anything to say to that?

    it's funny that they want everyone to think the civil war was just a normal territorial battle qith heroes on both sides, instead of a war to stop slavery.

    but this is what we get for giving the losers participation trophies, I guess.
