As a general statement, exactly what difference does it make what name a group takes, if they are in a protest?

I don't care if they are Moms. I don't care if they are Vets. If the protests were actually as peaceful as some try to claim, there would be no need for a protective wall. There will always be bad actors on both sides, but they would be in the minority and stand out quite clearly.

The minute you use your 'status' as though you cannot be treated as anyone else acting badly, you have seriously miscalculated.

These groups are trying to appeal to the poorly educated and willfully ignorant news viewers. They count on the fact that emotions will preside over logic in these people's minds as they will never question why these people put themselves in situations like that in the first place. As we can see, they hit their mark here.
