The Bad Actors Today in Virginia and the Press

I have long maintained that the conservative movement, 2nd amendment groups, etc. need to police themselves well. This goes back to the tea party when the media routinely would find the one or two cranks in a crowd to portray the entire tea party protest as racist or fringe or whatever.

Today, in Virginia, second amendment activists are going to gather to protest against restrict gun control measures that many of the new progressive Democrats in charge intend to pass. Joining them will be white supremacists, neonazis, and others who intend to act out violently.

To be clear, the overwhelming numbers will be on the side of peaceful, law abiding second amendment activists. To be clear, the overwhelming media coverage will be on the white supremacists, neonazis, and other fringe nutters who are seeking to co-opt and define the protest as their own.

Second amendment activists need to stand up and be heard. They also need to act decisively in making clear they reject the racist fringe. The media wants to discredit the whole of the second amendment movement and they have willing accomplices with the racists on parade.

I wish the authentic second amendment activists well and hope they will not be discouraged by how the media and the racists behave. This is a hugely important civil rights issue. It is hugely important to focus on the rights, not those who would hijack the cause for hate. Let’s hope that happens.
