Hundreds of torch-wielding white nationalists who are attending Saturday’s Unite the Right rally gathered at the University of Virginia and marched to the Rotunda, chanting, “You will not replace us” and "Blood and soil." According to the BBC, the protesters also chanted "white lives matter" and "Jews will not replace us." They were met at the Rotunda by some UV students protesting the rally.
Bottom line: The social justice warriors have gotten the battle they want. They have framed the opposition to them as racists and these marchers are not doing much to kill that notion.
Libertarians are an extreme minority, and losing supporters everyday, but libertarians must be consistent in pointing out that the core problem is that social justice warriors are calling on government violence to enforce their viewpoint on everyone.
From the libertarian perspective, it is not about a position on other races. I have written on that issue already. It is about being left alone---which is something that social justice warriors don't want to do.
