Does anyone else deem it ironic that neo-nazis, while attempting to use their rights, typically have people that want to take that right away from them through violence or other means?

This is from

Seventeen people were arrested, all of them from the crowd separated from the neo-Nazis by lines of police in riot gear. Community leaders and police officials feared that the neo-Nazi march would fuel a riot, as it did last year in Toledo, Ohio. In that incident, more than 100 people were arrested when counterdemonstrators clashed with police on Oct. 15. Twelve officers were injured. No officers were hurt Saturday. Orlando police arrested 17 people in the crowd of counterprotesters, including four juveniles, on charges ranging from wearing a mask on a public way to one charge of battery of a law-enforcement officer. Police said 14 of those arrested were affiliated with an anti-fascist anarchist group. One person was arrested after getting
into a fistfight with other counterdemonstrators.

Police are, and should be more afraid of the people against neo-nazis than the neo-nazis themselves. To me, being able to spark this find of reaction just gives this group more implied power. It's not everyday that 20-30 people can spark that much civil unrest just from their presence.

From the same news source:

It's kind of sad someone needs to be protected this much just for having a different belief system.

That's because in wanting to express their disdain for the Neo-nuts, these people play right into the hands of the organizers of these neo-nazi rallies.
The rally organizers want, I repeat want, a violent confrontation, because to their eyes it proves their point. That point being they have righteousness on their side (pphhhttt...), and the protestors, usually African-American, Jewish, and their supporters, are rabble-rousing nogoodnicks out to destroy the white america that they so deperately want to protect.

The anger, and disdain, while warrented, must needs be harnessed, and kept under control. To do otherwise plays right into the hands of your enemy, and may alienate fencesitters who might otherwise be on your side against the neos.
