In the following video, a guy wears a red "Make America Great Again" hat to a BLM rally. It is not long before he is spotted, and called out, then assaulted:
Now I don't know about you's, but America is not ever going to be great again when you can't even wear a darn hat to a rally, expressing and exercising your 1st Amendment right. He had every right to be wearing that hat.
I didn't see him attacking anyone, throwing rocks through store windows, looting, jumping on cars, or anything other than just being there.
Now duh, he knew what he was getting into when he wore that hat to that rally, and then went crying like a little wimp when he got what he came for.
THAT STILL DOESN'T CHANGE THE POINT.
The 1rst Amendment is officially dead. Or, you can lose your life trying to prove me wrong. Your choice.

Ok no one is saying they were right to kick off in his ass not even I, but context matters imagine a police gathering for one of their fallen , lets make it one of the Dallas cops that got murdered recently by that sniper, imagine some random asshole walked into that crowed of mourners ..keep in mind this is the same day..and started yelling Blacklivesmatter . basically being a fukwith, then tell me what happens next.

I'm curious if a black guy at a KKK rally getting beat up would illicit the same shoulder shrugging from the nay-sayers here on ATS. What did he expect to happen?

Would you accept that the spirit of the first amendment that most people think of when they say that, is dead?

The first rule of not getting your ass kicked is to not be in a position where you can get your ass kicked.
... personal responsibility and common sense.
This guy apparently had none, because - Well, it sucks to be him
