Permit approved for 'Unite the Right' DC rally

Source: The Hill

BY JESUS RODRIGUEZ - 08/09/18 01:42 PM EDT

The National Park Service (NPS) has issued the official permits for the white nationalist rally and a counterprotest that will take place in Washington, D.C. this weekend.

"Permits were issued this morning for Jason Kessler and ANSWER Coalition and will be posted on the National Park Service Freedom of Information Act website as soon as the FOIA officer has reviewed them and applied any necessary redactions," said Mike Litterst, the chief of communications for the National Park Service, in a release Thursday.

The agency initially approved an application submitted by Jason Kessler, one of the organizers of last year’s “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., but had not issued an official permit because it was finalizing a security plan with law enforcement agencies.

The NPS has also issued permits for two counter protests, including one organized by a coalition of 18 anti-fascist, anti-racist and feminist groups. Another permit was issued Wednesday for a rally being organized by ANSWER coalition, a left-wing group.

9. "Congress Shall Make No Law...Abridging the Freedom of Speech"

Even ugly, bigoted speech.

If you don't want the Government judging the merits of your rally, you demand they judge theirs.

11. If we can't silence the Nazis, at least we can drown 'em out.

It's the patriotic thing to do.

13. OK then why do Christians in government deny gay people marriage licenses?

It kind of works both ways. Free speech does have consequences.

7. Good. The 'right' (The GOP) are Nazi's and need to be seen in the sunlight.


"The Nazi Right" VS. the 'Liberal Left'. Which one would you choose to be associated with?

I would like no counter protest, let them exhale their hate into an empty void. Then there is zero chance of "the violence started with Antifa" as the narrative.

Or at least I hope the clowns show up and make fun of them again. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/06/opinion/comedy-protest-taxes-nazis.html

8. I'd rather the Nazis be drowned out and made to feel unwelcome.

Of course that will probably piss them off further, but still... fuck these douchebags.

10. I will not be that widely attended

It is Washington DC, the Bullies can not bring their guns. No open Carry, No Conceal Carry, no guns and a police force that is used to dealing with large scale events. Very different playing field than Charlottesville was. This will not draw the same crowd.
