Orlando Yawns As Neo-Nazis March

(Orlando, FL) 25-30 neo-Nazis marched through the Parramore neighborhood of Orlando today. Police arrested at least 17 people on charges ranging from disorderly conduct to battery.

Neighborhood residents were displeased by the arrival of the National Socialist Movement (NSM).

"For them to come into our neighborhood it's wrong, it's a slap in the face," said Donnell Jones, 33, who opposed the marchers.

The rally area was patrolled by over 300 police officers, with support from helicopters and SWAT teams.

The anti-Nazi crowd, estimated at several hundred, refrained from the sort of violence that erupted in Toledo on October 15, 2005. Congratulations to the city of Orlando on handling the clown invasion, and kudos to the populace, who largely ignored the race-baiting and lunacy of the white supremacists.

Sorry. No Nazi spam.

I'm not interested in providing free publicity to imbeciles.

The rally was a colossal failure in my opinion. No riot, poor turn out, and very little national media coverage…

I have said before that the primary goal of the NSM during this rally should be to instigate a riot (like they did with Toledo 1).

The paradox of blacks rioting in response to a rally protesting black violence is too great to bypass.

There were children at this rally and undoubtedly accompanying parents. With a few well placed and targeted insults they could have provoked the crowd to attack the police and the rest is Toledo 1…

Ultimately, the NSM needs new ideas. Their whole existence as a ‘political party’ is hinged on one platform: opposing minorities.

National Socialism has much more to do with the worker than it has to do with opposing other races. They could hold a rally in a poor white suburb affected by globalization (such as Ohio and Michigan- the two hardest hit) and give these struggling families some hope (and remind them how both Democrats and Republicans have failed them in this regard)…

They should also get over their fetish with WW2 uniforms and Hitler. Both are in the past and both will not advance this party into the future political sphere. The Swastika is fine (since the symbol is a representation of the eternity, invincibility, and solidarity of the White Race- it is a pan-Aryan symbol not a NAZI one). Unless they can resurrect Hitler and the 1930’s it is time to be the neo-NAZIS instead of simply the NAZIS.

The group is a joke, but it has potential and the leadership simply is unable or unwilling to exploit its potential.

Looks like this traveling circus needs some new acts for sure. What about some elephants and real clowns instead of those classless dress-up dolts?

I am sure that they could always be extras for some Hollywood movie about WW2. After all, they spend all their free time practicing for this role!

If these guys didn't dress up like nazis and, didn't spout a hate message at their gatherings and simply marched and raised media attention that there is indeed a disproproportionate number of black gangs, black crime and white victims, would that change anything or, would they be labled "racist" for just being politically incorrect in saying so? A minority that is victimized by a white person gains celebrity status while a white victim is merely a statistic (Rodney King and Reginald Denny ring bells). Was the guy who was smashing bricks into Reginald Denny's head on live TV prosecuted for committing a hate crime? No. Would a white guy be if the shoe was on the other foot? Should things be this way? No. The law should be equal across the board and a hate crime is a hate crime no matter who is doing it.

Agreed about the NSM and its lack of substantive ideas, Stefan. They will continue to be a far-fringe group until they come up with some coherent agenda beyond "we detest everyone who is not white."

And you correctly note that the low NSM turnout and weaker media coverage made this a snoozer.

Sepp:

You raise some troubling points with the concept of hate crimes, at least in how the media treats them.

Personally, I think that, however well-intentioned, some hate crime legislation is misguided, and creates strange permutations in outcomes.

Is a Confederate flag or a swastika itself a "hate crime?" No.

Are these symbols capable of provoking a riot? Certainly.

If someone wants to display one of these symbols on their property, go right ahead. But if you dance outside a synagogue with Nazi paraphrenalia, or stand outside a black church wearing KKK garb, you are not engaging in "free speech" as much as you are trying to provoke a retaliatory response.

Charge people with assault if there is violence, or intent to incite a riot if they try to provoke another group, but the one-size-fits-all "hate crimes" legislation gets too many arbitrary applications.

Herr Steffan Schmidt- thanks for posting your trash to my blog.

I was wondering how long it would take for you to unmask your adolescent self.

Halloween year round?

I simply posted the facts on South African farm murders and how these murders have increased 700% since apartheid--- which is in keeping with your motto: ‘SO HERE IS A BLOG JUST FOR YOU FOLKS WHEREIN YOU CAN VENT YOUR FRUSTRATIONS AS WELL AS SHARE YOUR IDEAS OF HOW TO MAKE OUR CITY, STATE, AND NATION A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE AND WORK’


I guess WNs are not extended this invitation?

Herr Steffan Schmidt-

What you are looking for is ‘Steffen’ not ‘Steffan.’

Either way, my name is ‘Stefan.’

liberal_dem said...

Well, no not really. I wouldn't walk across the street to 'look for you.'

Spelling is optional: whether you are Steffen, Steffan, or jerk, it really matters little.
