Hi Aaron. The problem that I see, is that in the mainstream media (NY Times, Washington Post), it is portrayed as “anti-racist groups” and “ordinary citizens” against “fascists and racists”. Yes, the marching Nazis are that, but this is really a struggle between the Left and the Right — with the marchers and demonstrators as proxies. The problem I see is that there are legitimate concerns that “white men” have, and they are dismissed and lumped with “Nazis and fascists”.
Reality is not that way. Today, if a white man complains, he is silenced by being labeled as a “racist and bigot”. If a white man complains about illegal immigration, he is a “racist”. If a white man complains about immigration from the countries on our nation’s own high risk list, he is “Islamophobic”. If a white man says that he is not sure that a trans woman is really a woman, he is “trans-phobic”. If a white man says that he is not sure that sea level rise of 3mm/year from global warming is an existential threat, then he is called a “climate change denier”.
There is a story that is not being told by the mainstream media. The demonstrations are big shows depicting the struggle between the Right and Left, with the extremist elements on stage. But there is a real, deep disconnect underneath, and it is not being reported on in a fair way.
