Yes, let's support a rebellion movement against the US to protect the right to own men, women, and children in servitude. Let's continue to honor a Confederacy that felt that "a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization," as stated in the Mississippi Declaration of Causes of Secession. Let's preserve these venerations of the the leaders of that rebellion. After all, our white nationalist brothers and sisters need something to rally around.

It is all we need to know that James Brock was one of the thugs at Charlottesville that lead to violence and a girl's death to be aware of the white supremacy reason for this group. Bringing the thinly rebranded KKK and Nazism to Arkansas. They are not about history but continued oppression. Every decent human in Arkansas should condemn them.

If he marched in Charlottesville on Friday night, then Brock is a Nazi sympathizer at the very least. redaily is correct.

Their views are loathsome, but not illegal. If they have a permit, let them make public fools of themselves. Any crimes that are committed need to be met with immediate arrests, to minimize the risk of murders/casualties.

Their Facebook page is scary. They're calling for everyone to arm themselves 'to the maximum extent possible.' There's also another outfit called the Central Brigade who are going to be on the Capitol grounds at 5pm today to defend the Confederate Soldiers Monument there which they claim has been threatened with removal. I hope Buckner's overtime till is fully funded.

The leader of the group, James Del Brock, has a video on the group's Facebook page urging that this be the 'biggest rally AR has ever seen.' He's urging all participants to conceal carry and to leave children at home. He also mentions planned rallies in Pine Bluff and Bentonville on Saturday. They are clearly planning violence. I hope the governor is paying attention.

DB, ah but didn't Pack say constantly these groups are "peaceful?" If so, why do they arm themselves for a small apocalypse for these rallies? I don't see that happening on progressive rallies.

Hey RBear - Yes, let's continue to support a rebellion movement against the US to protect the right to discriminate against men, women, and children of color by honoring the likes of John McClellan by naming, of all things, a law school after him. After all, our white nationalist brothers and sisters need something to crow about. Moron.

Hey redaily - Every decent human in Arkansas should respect the 1st Amendment.
.
Hey amgoo - If you molested a little boy last night you are a pedophile.
.
Hey AuntPetunia - How is preserving American history loathsome?
.
Hey DoubleBlind - Sounds like someone's preparing to defend themselves against attack from the alt-left antifa. Yes, RBear, we're all peaceful until someone punches us in the nose. At that point I tend to punch back. What about you?
.
While America is worrying about inanimate objects that hurt snowflakes' feelings Spain is coming to grips with radical Islamic terrorism. Yea us!

Pack, I think these folks are looking to fight. In most cases I've seen (I know you have your right wing blogs you get photos from), the counterprotesters were aggressive, but didn't directly attack the protesters. Regardless, why bring guns to a protest? You never answered that one.
...
On your other ridiculous claims, you can't seem to keep things straight. Sure, why shouldn't we oppose the church who discriminated also? Let's get rid of the Southern Baptist church (based on your flawed logic).
