And I will be going to protest today. In light of the recent shootings in Pittsburgh and countless other attacks from these thugs, I'm a little more than worried.
There are voices saying, "Just ignore them. If you go, you'll only be giving them attention." There is a ring of truth to that, but given the fact we had to fight a war with these guys because they were left unopposed and the current mood in this nation, I don't think that's an option anymore. Hell, look at other nations that are clamping down on speech and expression. We got it, let's use it.
I don't think anything is going to happen. A letter was supposedly circulated to local hospitals saying that the Nationalist Socialist Party people will be open carrying (authenticity is being analyzed on Facebook, we'll see how that goes) and maybe some protestors too. Alarming yes, but I attended Occupy Little Rock and a Confederate Rally (passing out water) and nothing went down, so here's hoping nothing does today.
If it does, let me say it was nice knowing you guys. I would have loved to met all you Deviant Art people. I got to buy and share art, share stories and dreams, see your progress in your fields, and talk to people from lands I wish I could have traveled to. I wish you all the best.
God bless, don't give up on your dreams or fellow man, and be cool under pressure.
