Ah yes, the "I don't like street violence" lifestyle, how incredibly wicked and evil. Seriously, just because someone opposes political violence doesn't mean they're an affiliate of the potential targets of that violence. Maybe they just have an express interest to not get caught up in the crossfire.>>95195728
Right, that's what laws against assault and battery are for. However, a number of court rulings, some very recent, have shown that the first amendment does in fact apply to non-state entities. For instance, colleges cannot arbitrarily revoke an unpopular or distasteful speaker's right to use their publicly available hall if he is willing to do business. The Civil Rights Movement guarantees that publicly available platforms in the US cannot discriminate against their customers outside of a very specific set of circumstances.>>95196035

Yeah, but look at Charlottesville. Had the police simply protected the rally-goers by keeping them apart from the protestors, would there have been nearly as much of a shitstorm as what we got? Probably not: there wouldn't have been any fatalities, it would just have been a public shouting match before everyone went home to shout at each other on twitter. But because the Mayor and governor did what they did, they now have at least one fatality on their hands.>>95196477
No, but when a lot of people say "fascist" what they really mean is "republican".
