Simple Solution to White-Supremacist Hate
There is an easy solution for dealing with this White Supremacy/Neo Nazi hate, and one that would totally avoid chaos, violence, hate, injury, and death. It’s so easy it will never happen. It is simply this: Completely Ignore It.
Allow white supremacists to have a peaceful march, allow them to get on their podiums in front of a mike and shout anything they want. But do two things. First: Allow NO press to attend, and Second: put out a press release prior to the march that tells everyone there will be an anti-American rally, that no press will be allowed, and request/plead with the public that they completely avoid the areas where the rally/march is to take place. Explain to everyone that ignoring hate is the best way to fight hate simply because there truly is no other way. Ask all to “Stay Away” and if they happen to be on the street or in the area where the march is, to “walk quickly in the opposite direction.” To NOT stand and watch them, NEVER take a single photo, totally and unequivocally “IGNORE” the entire rally. The only people that should be there is a few police to enforced that no weapons are there and it is indeed peaceful. The following press release should be: “There was a peaceful anti-American rally that no one attended except the anti-Americans.”
Let these misguided individuals (idiots) have their say, let them shout their right-winged rhetoric to each other, let them make asses out of themselves, “In Private.” There will be no harm done, no violence, no pain, and no death. And can you just imagine what they will be thinking and feeling when there is not one soul there who gives a crap. Their speeches will have no power and no reward. Their entire rally will be for naught. Will they march again? I truly doubt it.
How easy would this be to do? VERY easy, we only need to do it. It’s so logical, while it is totally “illogical” to think we can change these ignorant people by protesting against their beliefs. Protesting doesn’t EVER change a single mind, so WHY try by shouting at ignorance? What is the value of lowering ourselves to their level of raising fists and shouting back, let alone enticing violence?
If we could only “Ignore the ignorant” there would be no harm to anyone.
Can we do it, certainly. But will me, sadly, no.
