    Chimps are rightly outraged about this thread title.

    And this guy is the Gingham Dragon of the Oak Orchard branch of the J Krew Klux Klan.

    It's all happening at the re-named Emancipation Park. With a bigass statue of Robert E. Lee on a horse in it.

    It's a free country. People should be allowed to enjoy their racist cosplay fantasies, as long as it does't encroach on anyone else's rights.

    The media and country in general would be best served to ignore it. A few hundred idiots don't deserve this sort of hysteria coverage. The media hyperventilating just pushes more people to that cause because it makes the media hypocrisy and exploitation so painfully transparent.

    Well no. But I also can't take a stroll through Robert E. Lee park in New York City either.

    That made me laugh. Repped

    The media should be focusing more on the the overwhelming opposition to the hate. The opposition to the hate is something like 2:1 or 3:1 at least, correct?

    Actually Charlotteville should have taken a lesson from Memphis. In 2013 the KKK got a permit to protest in front the courthouse (on a Saturday morning). Happened that I lived about 5 blocks away and the was a somewhat violent protest in 1998. So I skedaddled, but on the way out, saw the fencing outer layer of fencing (there were two layers)...

    They were standing on the steps of the courthouse on the left which would be approximately the middle of the picture. This picture was taken inside the boundary. MPD blocked off 9 square blocks and it was largely low key even. Even the local stations gave it little more than a mention that night. If you want to make a hate protest meaningless, this is the model.

    Why?

    Do you have a link for this assertion?

    Ad how much opposition is there in saying to oneself, "Gee, they really are overdoing this a bit" or "A few hundred... don't deserve this coverage" over one's morning coffee?

    You don't have a link, @soccernutter

    Tell me what causes you to post so dismissively about these people and what's happening here.

    Yeah, I got to agree. Coddling this shit hasn't really helped. Too many remain silent and / or simply minimize the growing cancer.

    The way the vehicle backed out of there with a quickness, there's no doubt in my mind that it was intentional.

    BTW, this a reminder that Republican politicians in some states have introduced laws that would reduce liability for driving into protestors on streets and highways.

    To me, focusing on the hate side (the hate groups) as much as the media do is exactly what the hate groups want - more publicity, more notoriety. I don't mean ignore the hate groups, but not focus on them so much.

    A couple of things I read yesterday suggested there would be a few hundred hate grouper, and a couple thousand counter protesters. But I don't know in reality, which is why I asked the question. Haven't read anything today on actual numbers.

    I wasn't suggesting that. I was suggesting the importance in the numbers opposed to hate, that there is much to approved in the numbers opposed to the hate. To me, reading the lead-up articles, it was very much, "there is going to be a hate march, and, by the way, there are also going to be bigger number of counter protesters." There needs to be coverage of the hate groups/people, but not at the exclusion of those opposed to the hate, which is very much what it appears to be in the media coverage.

    Edit: Did you read my post in the Racism thread? Why do you think I took the time to identify the different hate groups and give a description of them?

    Another act of Wingnut domestic terrorism.

    They showed another video from behind and he backed up a few blocks. They said he was eventually apprehended a few blocks away. Just like Islamofascists in Europe, right Wingnuts?

    What a shitshow. Time to squash the Klan once again. LE does it every so often. RICO charges against Spencer & crew. Cut their balls off.
