I think there's a little difference here. There is no way to be polite about this, but I'll do my best. The American tradition is to boo and hiss
when people express opposing positions. Maybe some fist fights, bottles thrown, the police called to break up crowds using night sticks, horses,
water cannons, whatever.
But for Americans now, we have learned at least grudging tolerance for freedom of speech. Here comes the hard part, the people in Dearborn are
"different." They have shown in the past that freedom of speech, or even many American laws, are meaningless to them, unless they can use it for
their own benefit. They are unable or unwilling to control themselves in such situations. Normal rules and assumptions can't be applied to them.
Mr. Jones is entering into a different environment than can be found in the rest of the US. The laws don't apply, there is nothing protecting him. I
have no doubt that he will be at least hospitalized. Perhaps he sees it as martyrdom, or as a chance to show the world what has happened to Dearborn,
but it will be costly.
Another problem arises if those "different" people feel that eliminating Mr. Jones is insufficient to avenge their "honor." Perhaps they will believe
that the destruction of buildings, churches, or attacks on others will be required. At that point, Mr. Jones' martyrdom will drag in others.
It's a terrible shame that Dearborn isn't recognized as the problem that it is. It is not being discussed or dealt with. It is very close to being,
as another poster put it, a different country. A country which our government has no plan to reclaim. It is, basically, conquered territory.
