As a Jew, all I can say is that shouting and protesting often does little but induce fighting, and yet our calls for peace are being unheeded by people who seem to want to kick up dirt and cause trouble and push agendas.
Even many Jews are questioning the actions of the ADL which is supposed to be DEFENDING the Jews against anti-Semitism but lately has been INCITING people, especially the non-Jewish to rally in opposition to counter or attempt to prevent what may be gatherings that fall under the protection of American free speech and assembly laws. I myself had to distance myself from the ADL because it has become too radical over the past year. I am not the only Jew who has done this recently.
While I totally disagree wholeheartedly with the Neo-Nazi message and worldview, and as a Jew I have sadly had to endure (especially this year in Florida) several incidents of anti-Semitism targeted either at my local Jewish community or myself personally, I don't encourage taking the rights of American citizens away, no matter how distasteful their message or beliefs may be.
I was taught to let hate assemble and peacefully walk past it, to even look for opportunities to treat it kindly and prove it wrong by your kindness, to perhaps demonstrate that you are not violent or the animal or beast that it claimed you were, if possible.
Now if a law was being broken, yes, then action had to be taken, but not until then. Until then if I wanted my neighbor to let me live in peace and treat me with respect, I will do the same, especially when I do not subscribe to their tenets. Mutual respect fosters mutual respect. You earn it. It is not a right.
Call me old-fashioned, but why so many "talking heads" on television telling me what to think about today's news? I don't need to be told what to think about it. I don't necessarily care for Trump, but you don't have to bring a panel of "experts" in to tell me what I should be thinking about what he says or does. (Last I saw on my MRI, I have brain. My neurologist assured me it can do thinking good.)
Now, at one time I was what they called "progressive," yes, even a "liberal." But you wouldn't catch me with a stick in my hand at a rally. We did things by ad hoc committee and grass movements (sometimes the emphasis was a little too much on the "grass" perhaps and I'm not sure we got much done if anything...but it was always peaceful, always), and we didn't get our agenda on TV either (well, people have always said we Jews got our agenda in entertainment since the beginning, and in a way that's true since we Jews invented both the major film studios and, yep, the U.S. porn industry--Uh-huh, Jews invented lust...that's what you get for blaming us for killing Jesus, naked pictures to fuel your masturbation addiction...to the rest of you who aren't suffering from Christian guilt, yeah, you're welcome). The agenda on TV back then was still a Norman Rockwell painting designed mostly by Republicans well into the 1980s and a bit into the early '90s.
I'm not a conservative, no sir, but I think I just got knocked over into the "moderate" lane. "Uh, wait a minute here," I told somebody about this recently, "I'm a Jew. Shouldn't I have a say in this?"
Rudely the hand of a millennial who was waving his other as a fist at a Neo-Nazi, pushed me away at my face and said to me: "Beat it, old man, this is not your fight!"
What just happened? Do you know who I am? My people invented porn!
