The weekend wasn't pretty. We had Nazis and Commies fighting each other, causing distress to the rest of us...and death amongst themselves. Oh, but the martyr--one of your standard, well-meaning useful idiots, as described by Stalin--was a pretty, young woman, so she's been a hell of an image, and her death has been capitalized on by the usual suspects.
I don't feel anything about it. She was an idiot, in the wrong place, at the wrong time, in amongst the wrong people. On purpose.
But the Left needed a martyr, so...
Any case. There was violence, nastiness, and all of it exacerbated by wall-to-wall news coverage. Attention seeking spoiled menaces given a camera and a venue. Used. The ratings are all that count.
And the Guard...brought in, but ordered to stand by, and information coming out that there were orders to peace officers to not interfere.
Smacks of a setup, in my opinion.
I have an idea: why don't we, as a nation, pay the air-fare for a whole bunch of these morons to go protest together (and against each other) in, say Death Valley? With a few companies of National Guard set up around the perimeter, to prevent the mess from spilling over onto those who want nothing to do with either the Nazis or the Commies, and go ahead and give them their arena, and their cameras, and their national attention? How about we, as a nation, set it up so that they get their wish, and get to fight and/or kill one another without legal repercussions in this circumstance, and this one only?
I mean, after all: the Romans did it.
And I'm pretty sure it'd clean up a lot of jobless, feckless dead weight.
