Since when do The People in a free country have to submit to abuse in silence?
Since when has it been "American" to accept racism, bigotry, murder, without rising up to protest?
Peaceful protest is a basic human right and, today, in America, that right is being shameless threatened.
Without the right to peaceful protest, you have Hitler's Germany.
And when people – who have fought for freedom far across the seas and whose loved ones have died fighting for freedom – when those people are not allowed peaceful protest, they will have to resort to violence – civil war in America – or die as the Jews died in Nazi Germany.
