I don’t like David Duke or anything that he stands for. I don’t believe in white supremacy. I do, however, believe in their right to assemble. I know it is a headline grabbing event, filled with implications and pitfalls. But, did you ever wonder what would happen if Duke and others seeking 15 minutes of fame were simply ignored? Many protests and demonstrations that escalate from peaceful to violent would never happen if they weren’t given print and air space. After the fact the reporting would likely be, 50 people showed up, a speech given and participants disbursed.

When you put out a story like “Charlottesville police declare a state of emergency”, it’s like waving a red flag in front of a bull.  Inviting counter protesters to jump into the fray. A lot of time they are young, passionate and looking for excitement. When we examine this latest tragedy, let’s think about causes and prevention. Let’s not start laying blame until all the facts are in. And let’s think about ways to diffuse such incidents in the future.
