both were legal to begin with.
you may carry a sign and peacefully protest sharia law at a muslim rally but if the muslims get violent it is not on you
both of you have rights till they infringe on others

No they weren't. One side got the necessary permits and got the necessary approval. The other side didn't.

What's with the Muslims? Were they there too?

But you're correct, your rights stop when they begin to infringe on the rights of others. Occupy Democrats and BLM did just that. The sole intent of the counter protesters was to disrupt the rights of others.

You do realize counter demonstrations are legal too, right? They didn't lose, the side that murdered someone did. funny you put it like that. PC has nothing to do with murder. Your rights have nothing to do with this discussion.

Funny how libs are f*ckin' mutes when blacks are assassinating cops in Dallas but all of a sudden scream like little biotches when a white racist kills someone.

Stupidity burns. Hypocrisy is pretty flammable too.

The wilful blindness to what is different this time, the violent Left wing thugs from the Antifada and BLM among other "counter protesters" is textbook Leftwing fascism.

Instead of the close minded demand that you must condemn the protestors and sign on to the purging of American history to suit Left wing fascism it would be refreshing to actually look into the Genesis of these riots.

Virginia is a swing state in Presidential elections but Charlottesville is not.



Displaying the usual Progressive intolerance and ignorance, the city undertook a campaign to rewrite history ultimately by purging the statue of Confederate Robert E Lee and renaming the park where it stands.



Enter protestors against the city council's decision to try rewriting history.



Of course in true Progressive fashion the city tried to deny the protestors their rights because their beliefs were offensive. Even the ACLU took exception.



https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/08/1...ww.google.com/

Naturally Leftist thugs attacking a most likely peaceful, legally sanctioned protest against the city council's narrow decision is forgotten. Instead, we have a litmus test for racism demanding we ignore the rights of the protestors while ignoring the violence of the Progressive Left.
If the opposition to the removal of those statues is about protecting history. Then those racist protesting the removal are only hurting the cause. Because everyone who said those statues are about honoring racism and honoring slavery are proven right by those racist protesters.

Learn your history. Not what they tried to tell you it was, but what it actually was. You know, truth and facts.

I am tired of people trying to whitewash the reasons for the civil war.

Demonstrations are legal if they are done legally. This one wasn't. Few left wing demonstrations are. Ferguson, Baltimore, OWS, BLM, all not legal.
