Police are shutting down a White Nationalist rally in VA that has devolved into violence and fights.

"Go home or you will be arrested"

Edit: VA not NC

I hope everyone is paying attention.

There are white nationalists clashing with people while waiving Nazi and Confederate flags.

Not a good look for America.

A car just plowed through a group of counter protestors in VA. Citing several injured, paramedics attempting to resuscitate one victim at the scene.

Reminder that Republican politicians have introduced laws across the country to reduce driver liability for driving into protestors.

Agreed.

Neither were the riots after the election, though. You didn't seem too concerned then.

How many arrests were there at the women's march? And how many participants?

Do you characterize that as a riot?

I realize you're being willfully ignorant here. It's cool, I didn't expect you add anything of value anyway.

Nope, the women's march was a peaceful protest.

The "Unite the Right" was supposed to be a peaceful protest. They got permits, they cleared it with LE, but they showed up in body armor with bats and shields. The "protest" lasted about 15 minutes until the police realized that they showed up to fight, not to protest.

The riots that happened on inauguration day were not planned, there were no organizers (besides antifa anarchists with designs to incite violence). I've spoken out against antifa in the past, not sure why I need to repeat myself.

Come on man. You don't remember the riots in DC, and in every major city around the country? If I ever was embarrassed to be an American, it was then.

I'm not all that concerned about white supremacists. I'm not white, and those people would likely hate me based on my ethnicity, but I don't see them as a huge threat. They're a relatively small portion of our society that has always been there. They're not much more than a group angry, and hateful, retards (yes I used it, suck it BIBL :D ). Look at the dude who was arrested, he looks like he has an IQ of 12.

Easier said than done, my friend.

Especially if you are one of the minorities they're marching against.

Very true. And it's not like this is the first counterprotest in history.

Ah...the left foaming at the mouth yet again. There's no talking to them so you guys may as well just stop. They have a single-minded agenda they want to see come to fruition and no amount of discussion is going to sway them. The blinders are on and that horse ain't moving from it's predetermined path. Enjoy your psychobabble. I refuse to participate any further.

Just change one word form "left" to "right" and this is a BIBL post.

No, it's not always an easy thing to do but sometimes you have to just walk away and let stupid people be stupid all by themselves. If they show up looking for a fight and there is nobody there to fight, what's left to do? Wave their little flags, scream and shout, then go home and it doesn't make nearly as much news and they don't get to have their 15 minutes in the spotlight....

When America figures this out, we will all be in a much better place....

You'd feel the same way if militant islamists marched on your town wearing armor and shields, carrying bats and assaulting people, threatening countless others?

Call it a hunch but nothing had happened when the protest was planned or when the counter protest was planned (both obviously well in advance of the day it happened) so there had been no assaults on any innocent people and nobody had been threatened. If a bunch of Islamic idiots want to stage a protest in downtown Naples, have at it.... I'm not gonna jump when they pull my string. Pretty sure there are authorities that are going to ensure they stay in their lane

Showing up to do what they want you to do is the epitome of stupid and reactionary

You were asking if I would plan on attending some counter protest if Islamic militants planned to march in my city?? No, what would be the point?? Show them I can do what they want me to do????

First part of post is likely what is over your head. My point is that nobody had threatened or attacked anybody at the time the counter protest was planned, so that has no bearing on the question....

So again, I would not attend some counter protest to a march by an Islamic group down 5th Ave S in Naples....
