Yes you have to a right to hate, but when it crosses the line is when you put that hate into practice, or join an organization based on hate. Do we
really want to allow and encourage hate groups? Do you remember the 60's? It wasn't that long ago.
We shouldn't encourage hate by supporting peoples desire to celebrate it with a march. We as a people have come a long way since the 60's, do you
want that to be all for nothing?
I think we do; we just do not have the right to harm. As I stated earlier, I am a black woman and am presenting an unbiased viewpoint. This
rally is held in opposition to the renaming of the park, not to cause harm to any racial groups.
Take a look at the youtube vid I posted on the previous page to see who committed the violence and hate in the Klan's last rally here in Memphis.
I'm not really interested in why they are marching this time, the KKK brings with it years of hate. I don't blame people who appose the KKK,
violently or not, because due to their history you need an ass kicking to ever even think of joining the KKK imo. How many people have the KKK
murdered over the years? Is that all forgiven now?
Do they now support minority issues, and hold bake sales to improve race relations?
Let's have a Nazi rally while we're at it, we can invite the National Front, the British Nationalist Party, the Aryan Nation, Column 88, we'll have
a good clean afternoon of non-violent fun celebrating and spreading hate.
We don't have to allow something we find abhorrent just because we support 'free speech', or liberty in general, it is our freedom to stop the
hate. Hate speech is not free speech, so it's not, and should not be, covered by any rights.
