On this date in 2017 in Charlottesville, VA, the second day of the first Unite the Right rally was held. Tragically, counter-protester Heather Heyer was murdered at this event. May she rest in peace. As a British citizen it is difficult to discover unbiased information about the original intentions of the organisers but it seems that they were opposed to the removal of a commemorative statue of American hero General Robert E. Lee. However, it is clear that they were exercising their rights under the law of the United States of America. The event was heavily counter-protested by groups alleging the identity of the police and the Ku Klux Klan. A second Unite the Right rally is being held this weekend in Washington D.C. and while many attendees will be ordinary people like you and me who are disconcerted by the increasingly forced pace of social change, I suspect there will be others there with whom we would not sympathise. Their activism was inevitable, however, as the extreme Left have pushed further & faster for social & cultural change. Many people predicted this would happen e.g. Jordan B. Peterson during his first public speech on the forced speech issue in October 2016, in this video from time 0:54 - 1:11. We can all hope that this year's Unite the Right rally goes peacefully but if we do not wish to see further public displays of political polarisation then it is important to respect the existing cultures of majority populations and not foolishly attempt to impose top-down Utopian values.
