Here we go again...

This coming Saturday, the neo-Nazis will march again in Toledo, this time around downtown. I'm a fan of the First Amendment, but isn't the limitation on hate speech clear here?

Still, I can't help but shake my head. Last time around, the rioting was after the neo-Nazis left, not while they were here. Let me repeat that- the rioting was after they left. They were safely on a bus out of town while all that garbage was going on! This time, counter-demonstrations are planned, there will be marches in response, and in all likeliehood, the same rioting and crap will happen again.

I weep for the sanity of the world. They came spewing hate and vitriol last time about how people couldn't contain their violent and base nature, and they were proven right.

Hallelujah. It's over, and Toledo's in one piece. No violence, no riots. :-)

Of course, I spent the time the neos marched watching "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe", so I'd say I had the better day.

And a much better use of time, too. :-)

I sound like my mother when I say this but I seriously think the best way to protest something like that is to ignore them. Even bad press is good press because it's attention. But no attention? Well that's just a bummer for them!

You guys suck! I'm dying over here to see that but it wasn't in the cards this weekend. Was the movie good? I know it was! No, don't tell me!!!
