    Would have moving the venue prevented the violence? I think things would have progressed the same.

    My problem is if you start to move/cancel events because of the threat of violence, then you let the antefa / nazis / islamists control who can and cannot speak and where and how.

    (I do consider the antefa to be less deplorable than the other two groups, but as I am equally likely to get punched in the face by all three, I included them.)

    Count me among those who don't think the venue mattered much. Too many people were hellbent on violence to get their point across. I think it safe to say that the city/county/state did not plan security well enough.

    That being said, I hope this guy gets locked up for a very long time.

    The driver of the car that plowed into protesters was pictured holding a symbol of Vanguard America (above), a white supremacist group. His personal Facebook page prominently displays the Othela rune, a symbol frequently used by Neo-Nazis. Read more at the SPLC (LINK).

    All available evidence shows this guy to be a white supremacist who committed an act of domestic terrorism. Watching the president repeatedly dodge reporters and steadfastly refuse to condemn white supremacy by name when directly asked continues a sickening trend that we've watched play out for nearly two years.

    The only good thing I can about this is that they didn't decide to hold their rally in Tuscaloosa.

    Re: Rioting at Charlottsville Va (UVA) by white nationalists and counter protesters

    IMHO...best way to deal with stuff like this is to just stay home and let the extremists march and do their thing.

    Nothing good ever comes from clashing with another faction in a public place.

    Free speech doesn't necessarily mean the same thing as confrontation.

    Some people can't restrain themselves though......

    To them I say good luck but don't blame me if you get hurt or killed....you could have stayed home or gone somewhere else and protested in another way.

    YMMV.....

    If I'm in charge....I'm sending the message to stay away from these events......(of course, this doesn't help politicians or the media who are parasites off any kind of violence and tragedy).....
