I'm not familiar with the details of the sort of permits required for
this sort of thing, but as far as I know, the group wanting to march
has to say where they want to march, and whoever is in charge of
issuing permits tells them when the march can start, when it must end,
and the route it can take.
My question is this -- if everyone had just let the alt-right assholes
have their little march, along the prescribed route, and no one had
shown up to protest and get in fights, what do you think would have
happened? Is it possible that they'd have just had their little march
and gone home?
The protestors could have had a march tomorrow or next weekend. If no
one showed up to protest it, wouldn't that be better than what we have
I doubt if there was one person on either side today who saw what was
happening and thought "Gosh, I think I like the other side better!"
This is all the result of tensions, disagreements and hatred that have
been around since before the Civil War. Marches and rallies are not
going to change anything.
