The this-isn't-Charlottesville open line

Posted By on Sat, Nov 10, 2018 at 3:59 PM


The open line here. Note that today was the day scheduled for a Capitol "rally" of white nationalists. As yet, it's no Charlottesville.

Gwen Combs of the March on Arkansas grassroots group reports a counter-protest turned out far more opposed to white supremacists than the dozen or so neo-Nazis. Lots of security on hand.

What if they gave a rally and nobody came at all?

The tiny band of jackboots brought guns. and a speaker denying the Holocaust. The anti-fascists brought speech — signs and chants declaring opposition.
KATV posted some film, but why give the dirty dozen any more exposure.
