A Call to Violence Against Speech

There's  a lot of confusion displayed by the sign in the above pic, which appeared at a right wing, "anti-political violence,"  "rally for peace," this past weekend in Washington D.C.

There is nothing peaceful about preventing any kind of speech on private property or the no man's land of "public" government-controlled property.

Preventing speech of any kind under these circumstances requires violence of some sort. It is a terrible, confused idea. But I will not call on stopping them from speaking and promoting this absurdity. I will, however, speak out against it as dumb and promoting political power over debate.
