Re: “Save Our Speech

The news report was titled "This Is How San Francisco Protests the Far Right".

The report begins, "Authorities in San Francisco and Alameda counties prepared for the influx of fringe-right supporters over the weekend, hoping to squelch the assemblies from turning violent like they have in the past through a series of legal maneuvers and bureaucratic red tape." https://ww2.kqed.org/news/2017/08/26/photo…

This is liberals using governmental power to block an unpopular, hated group. And I am not comparing this to fascism, and I understand that many think I should welcome this is a way to avoid what happened in Charlottesville and Berkeley.

I'm a liberal, I'm pro-free speech and I am not a Nazi.

Re: “Save Our Speech

A thoughtful column.

The antidotes to the KKK, Neo-Nazis and other hatemongers are DNA tests and evolutionary demographics. The "race" they seek to preserve never existed. There is only one race: the human race. Diverse, yes, but more than one, no.

That said, there will be decades, probably, that these hateful people will pollute the public square with their antiquated and easily debunked beliefs. Any protest of racist hate-mongers should be peaceful.

In this world, hatred has
never been defeated by hatred.
Only love can overcome hatred.
This is an ancient and eternal law.
