From: "John Feldsted" <>
Subject: Hatred in Charlottesville

What we witnessed in Charlottesville, Virginia was a breakdown of civil order. Accusations and finger-pointing cannot erase the chaos of the temporary lawlessness that has shaken Charlottesville. 

Neo-Nazis and white supremacist anarchists were gathered mostly from outside Charlottesville and do not represent Virginian society. They ignored instructions in their parade permit, dared people to react to their vitriol and came armed for an inevitable confrontation.

Many residents came to voice opposition to the intolerance and bigotry expressed by the anarchists. Some came armed for confrontation and those people mirrored the anarchists.

No one involved in the Charlottesville riot can claim moral superiority or high ground. Thugs fought with thugs resulting in losses of life and serious injuries. Both sides were in violation of the law. Excuses will not suffice; Charlottesville is not a lawless backwater. Those who disobey the law are subject to censure.

The citizens of Charlottesville do not deserve to be tainted by the actions of street gang riots. Violent extremist elements do not define or represent law abiding Charlottetown residents who abhor bigotry, intolerance and violence in all guises.     

I was struck by the youth of those parading and their adversaries. They are far too young to have any recollection of Nazis or the KKK for that matter. The torches they carried were symbolic of eras that have taken several decades to recover from. Violence is not a thing to take lightly. None of the participants in the melee displayed any of the leadership qualities needed to keep America strong and free; they behaved like spoiled brats - miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless.

Politicians have been tripping over one another denouncing hatred as if is a thing rather than an emotion. They have given a very small group of anarchists the attention they crave making them look like a force to be dealt with when they have no real following. The media went into overdrive treating anarchists as celebrities rather than as common criminals. The rioters must be tracked down and charged with criminal offences. Presenting your views through criminal actions has to have meaningful and serious consequences for civil order to be maintained. A criminal record for rioters is a good place to start.

Both sides were in violation of the law.
 Whilst I agree with John, some may differ.
