I assume they outnumbered by counter-protesters like 50:1 as usual?

The KKK took my Mexican gardener away, they took him away, away from me.

Lionel Mandrake: I assume they outnumbered by counter-protesters like 50:1 as usual?


Yes.  Unfortunately, the author of TFA apparently didn't bring a camera.  If it actually happened the way the author described, the police "assault" on the counter-demonstrator should have been recorded.

Unfortunately, many anti-racists still haven't learned the important lesson that mockery is a better weapon than anger.  Those racist s**tstains thrive on anger, but they wither under mockery every time.

Go for it. They have the same right to assemble and make their views known. Of course, other folks have the same right to point and laugh.

Which is a perfect recipe for disaster -- and exactly what the Nazi's [sic], the KKK, and countless other hate groups thrive on. They want us to be complacent. They want us to think racism is a thing of the past.

lolwut?

I'm not saying the KKK and Nazis are the brightest bulbs, but I don't think even they are dumb enough to put on their silly costumes and "parade" in a major city in an effort to convince people that racism is dead.

I'm not surprised that it growing.  The Southern/rural right has gotten itself so worked up that we are lucky they aren't blowing up federal buildings.

To be fair, I think the cops just hate protests in general. It's a volatile situation, people are yelling at them and the cops know they are being filmed the whole time. They have to put up with whiny people on both sides of the fee speech zones and can't smash anyone's face in while trying to keep it orderly.

So I don't think that cop hates gays or loves the kkk. I think the cop probably wanted to throw ALL of them into a jail cell and get back to drinking coffee and eating doughnuts.

FTA:How can the Nazi's and the KKK have their free speech protected at all cost (and believe me, the overtime cost to pay for all the police is coming out of YOUR pocket), yet an LGBTQ woman peacefully holding a sign can be savegely attacked by the police -- in 2013?

Because the racists were quietly walking down the street exercising their right to peaceful assembly and protest, while the LGBTQ woman was hurling insults and obscenities and frothing at the mouth and generally being the violent and threatening one?

Two things stand out for me about this article. The first is the author's desire to have the police stand down and let the mob tear the KKK and Nazi's to pieces. I get it. I really do. They're despicable. But no cop is going to allow a mob of angry people attack another group that is peacefully marching in broad daylight. That's called civil disorder, and it's the exact thing that cops are there to prevent.

The second is that this is some quality trolling on the part of the racists. Atlanta is majority black town, with a black mayor and (I'd be willing to bet) a majority black police force. The scene of an angry mob attacking the peaceful KKK and Nazi demonstrators is EXACTLY the scene they wanted to create. Good on the cops for stopping it and not giving them fuel to throw on the national news cycle.

This is exactly why people rushed to think the Boston Bombing was homegrown. When you say things like "we came unarmed... THIS time." or "Second amendment solutions" yeah, that's not a very good PR campaign.

While the Nazi/KKK rally could muster only about 25-30 people willing to show their faces in public, a broad and diverse coalition many times that number formed up in the last week and met them with several hours of fierce chanting, drumbeating, yelling, and singing.

Because nothing says "effective action for change" like sitting around, pretending to be all tribal and connected, beating on a farking drum.

2013-04-21 01:06:06 PM  
The group was met with anti-racist protesters as soon as they began making their way up Martin Luther King Jr Drive (the irony is not lost)

That's not irony, that's being as inflammatory as possible.

Has anybody read that Nazis are gonna march in New Jersey, you know? We should go there, get some guys together. Get some bricks and baseball bats and explain things to 'em.

                  There was this devastating satirical piece on that in the Times.

Well, a satirical piece in the Times is one thing, but bricks get right to the point.

                  But biting satire is better that physical force.

No, physical force is better with Nazis.

No, you know who has a right to do this? Any group that does not openly incite violence against others. Once you cross the line and your whole ideology is based around killing others and advocating so, you lose the right to openly hold marches while everyone ignores your stupid ideas.

Actually you don't:

one LGBTQ woman was targeted for a sign that read "fark Off Nazi Scum." The woman was asked one time to put her sign away, although it was hard to hear anything in the crowd, and without another word, not even a chance to clarify what the officer was saying, a Capitol Police officer forcibly pushed his way into the crowd to grab the sign. The woman stepped back in reaction, at which point the officer reached into the woman's tank top, grabbed the area between her breasts, violently pulled her into the street and slammed her into the back of a police car, slamming her into it. Immediately after, the woman -- despite not fighting back and weighing a mere 110 pounds, if that -- was pounced on by officers from multiple departments and hauled away.

if you are a racist nazi scumbag your right to free speech is protected, but if you exercise those same rights in a counter protest you will be brutally beaten by the police.

I don't know why that would surprise you, most of my opinions are pretty middle of the road in general, except on a few subjects on Fark, and even that is a question of perspective, as it's more about Fark being slanted certain ways than me being so far out.

And what about the first amendment rights of the woman who was forced to put her sign away and then beaten and arrested for engaging in constitutionally protected speech.

//The first amendment is the only "permit" one needs to engage in free speech.

Anyone defending their 'right to free speech' is conveniently ignoring both:

- That incitement or advocating violence is not part of free speech
- The doctrine of 'Fighting Words'
