Even a broken clock is right twice a day

There was a riot only a few blocks from where I live this afternoon. A neo-nazi group was marching to the capital building downtown and they were blocked by protesters, who were eventually forcibly moved by the police using tear gas and mace.

The neo-nazis were protesting illegal immigration, as many of you may know I am from Arizona and the much maligned SB1070 law has caused much anger and hatred on both sides of the aisle and while I, under any other circumstance, would protest any actions of a neo-nazi group...well, needless to say, the broken clock I was speaking of in the title is this particular group. While that is true, I don't necessarily think that having neo-nazis speaking up in tune with the Tea Party is going to make the Tea Party's song more harmonious. In fact, it only gives the liberal party more things to attack the Tea Party with.

How are they supposed to defend themselves when liberals will lump them all together?

That being said, I would like to say that I actually think that Democrats are far more racist than the Tea Party. That is, of course, merely the opinion that I formed based on history and current political moves by both groups.

Maybe later I'll write a post about why I came to that conclusion.

Gutsy post.
But I have to ask why did the police have to break up the riot. Wouldn't it have been more productive to the the liberals and neo-nazis knife and let them cancel each other out?
