Washington, D.C., Braces for ‘Unite the Right 2’ White Nationalist Rally

Washington is bracing for a white nationalist rally that law enforcement agencies will try to prevent from descending into a melee like the one in Charlottesville, Virginia, that cast a shadow over Donald Trump’s presidency a year ago.

Permits for Sunday’s “Unite the Right 2” rally indicated that about 400 demonstrators are expected in Lafayette Square, a park adjacent to the White House. More than 1,500 counter-protesters plan to gather at various downtown locations, including in the same park.

My assessment of Charlottesville was that the police were woefully unprepared.

Anyone wearing a mask should have been arrested.  

Anyone carrying a shield should have been arrested.  

Anyone wearing a helmet — not at a football game — should have been arrested.  

No warnings. And, the bail hearing on the following Monday.

Anyone fighting — arrested.  Anyone littering — arrested. Anyone “inciting” a riot — arrested.

And, I wouldn’t be handing out slaps on the wrist.

The Gooferment has only ONE real duty — to keep the peace.

Argh!

ALT-Right, ALT-Left, ALT-Center — everyone gets equal treatment.

Blessed are the peacemakers.
