If there is a shining example of everything that’s wrong with race relations in the country, it’s what happened Saturday morning in Austin.
Apparently a monument to African-Americans was being erected at Capitol Hill when a group calling themselves “White Lives Matter Too” decided to protest on the exact same day:
As the monument was unveiled, around 15 people affiliated with a group calling itself “White Lives Matter Too” — a local group echoing White Lives Matter, designated a neo-Nazi hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center — gathered on the east side of the Capitol grounds. A group of about 500 counter-protesters quickly surrounded the group, some of whom carried assault rifles, and the two groups were soon chanting back and forth: “Nazis go home” versus “White lives matter.”
Then this happened:
As the monument celebration ended and the crowd cleared, the dual protests continued in the street in front of the Capitol for three more hours. Counter-protesters kept up chants of “Racists go home,” “No Trump, No KKK, no racist USA,” and “Black Lives Matter,” largely drowning out the white supremacist group.
The police presence, including both Austin police officers and state troopers, grew throughout the afternoon, with riot police forming a protective ring around the White Lives Matter protesters and eventually erecting a barricade between the white supremacists and the counter-protesters, who began chanting “Cops and Klan go hand in hand.”
So a group dedicated to white rights is stupid. The answer to racism is Martin Luther King’s idea, judging people by the content of the character and not the color of the skin. We need less division, not more.
But the other protesters weren’t making things better either. It seems like every liberal is comparing Donald Trump to the KKK nowadays, so I guess that’s to be expected. But comparing the cops keeping the area safe to the Klan is outright disgusting.
These aren’t people that want to make the country better. They want to yell and put it on their Youtube channel. Move on folks.
