If ANY non-white group, regardless of their organizing goal or principle, had staged that kind of march, the state police would have been called in immediately to arrest and/or tear gas all of them.

I'd like to see them try to pull that off in my little town in Arizona. For the most part, it's full of loud Mormons, but it's also full of old Vietnam veterans who are just quiet and pissed off. I think they'd like a last target shoot.

Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia in 1819. Initially, there were few rules and regulations to govern the university because Jefferson believed naively that students would take their studies seriously. His trust was misplaced as the misbehavior of students culminated in a riot during which students attacked professors who tried to restore order with bricks and canes.
The following day the university's board held a meeting with the defiant students. Jefferson, a member of the board, said: "This is one of the most painful events of my life," and then burst into tears. Those present said no amount of oratory or scolding could have had such an extraordinary effect. Unable to continue, another board member took over the meeting asking rioters to come forward and give their names. Almost every one of them did. One student said afterward, "It was not Mr. Jefferson's words, but his tears."

Well... tiki torches. I think they were demanding boneless skinless chicken breasts on their kabobs.

Tiki torches eh? They really aren't afraid of looking like total goofuses, are they?
Plus I'll eat my hat if a single one of these western culture warriors has ever read a shred of Duns Scotus or Peter Abelard.

yup.

i'm honestly surprised they didn't end their rally with a book burning.  its pro forma for these sorts of things.  I guess they're not quite to that point yet tho.  maybe by January, assuming we're still a nation by then of course.

Tiki torches? So, this was sponsored by True Value Hardware?

Guys, the hateful, bigot thing you've got down. But if people are to fear you, you need big pieces of wood with rags soaked in gasoline with a massive fireball on the end.

Tiki torches? Wow... yeah, you go with that. Buncha badasses over here.

Do not fear these pathetic assholes. We far outnumber them.

whomever posted that sort of bullshiat should be forced to seek professional mental help.  they are a deeply disturbed individual.

While the tiki torches are a bit silly, these gatherings are getting larger. By next year they might have matching jackboots and brown shirts, just to smarten up the look a bit.
 
2017-08-12 07:31:17 AM  
They would have dispatched riot cops, but that would have substantially reduced the number of available marchers.

Side note:
As much as one might want to criticize the UK for putting CCTV on every lamppost and sapling, with boldly offensive displays like this you can see the allure of rolling out facial recognition, like a soft fluffy blanket across the nation.

Then you realize such an infrastructure would be there for the use of any party in power, good, ineffectual, or monstrous. "Papers, please" could become a needless archaism.

Tiki torches are super duper girly.
 
2017-08-12 08:00:12 AM  
Looking at that crowd...I'm feeling oddly confident that all of these fine race warriors are one face punch away from wailing "Stop the violence!"

Please. Continue to identify yourselves to others like this. No, really, please do. Get this out in the open, where we can deal with it. I'd rather these folks march and self identify, so that we can actually address this sh*t, as opposed to letting it fester all quiet and pus like.
 
2017-08-12 08:09:03 AM  
If your main source of pride is that you had white parents - you've done shiat your entire life.

That is the one damn thing you had no control over, ya tiki-toting dipshiats.

/farking tiki torches.  I'm laughing at the superior specimens in display.
//"We don't want our tender white man-skin to get mosquito bites, but we want to march an show how much better we are to the lower people!  Whatever shall we do?"
 
2017-08-12 08:31:57 AM  
Don't those tiki torches use liquid fuel? I'm gonna put odds that there were a few nasty burns from people spilling fuel. If only those assholes set themselves on fire.

Wal-Mart must have had a sale on tiki torches. Those shining examples of white superiority couldn't even manage to wrap a rag around a stump. Sad.
 
2017-08-12 08:35:21 AM  
Today might not turn out too good. It looks like a couple or three hundred of these guys are going to show, and over a thousand counter-protestors.
The police had better be on their "A" game, or this could end badly.

Their reading comprehension isn't so hot. They all think they saw an ad campaign saying "Virginia is for Losers" and just showed up.

In due time this will work itself out. Tomorrow would be appreciated.
