Yesterday, a free speech rally was cut short by counter protesters, just one week after the deadly clash between protesters and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, VA.
Charlottesville dominated the news throughout last week.
I haven't been able to delve into the story too deeply, so many (all?) of you probably know more about what happened than I do.
What I did notice though, was that the media, Democrats and even some Republicans are squawking about what Our Grand Nagus said or didn't say in his attempt to condemn the violence.
Also the Democrats and their media allies are trying to pin the entire blame on the right-winger protesters. (The Five discussed the media's impact on Charlottesville).
Well, if two opposing groups show up decked out as 300 wannabees, things won't end well.
The Diplomad didn't beat around the bush: "...if you live in a Western country and you go around waving Nazi or Communist flags, or espousing Nazi or Communist ideology, you are a Moron..."
And Mark Steyn returned to one of his recurring themes: Less speech leads to more violence.
A couple of friends remarked these clashes reminded them of the riots between the Communists and Nazis in the days of the Weimar Republic.
Whatever the similarities are, the non-FOX News media has already chosen one side.
