Let us revisit history for a moment, because what is occurring today is basically the same. Many people do not realize that we are still fighting the same forces that we did in the 60's, hatred, war, inequality, etc.
But the methods of fighting those forces has changed. Perhaps it's time to go back and use the same methods we used then, peace symbols, love-ins, sit-ins.
Can you imagine 10,000, 20,000, whatever number, lining Pennsylvania Avenue next week with nothing but peace signs, not saying a word, no hatred, no vitriol, just simply shunning the Nazi's? By doing so, you take away their one weapon, hate and anger. You negate their message! Getting into shouting matches, acknowledging their hatred does exactly what they want, confirmation of their views!
Ignore them, it confuses them! It also makes you stronger! And you are strong, whether you believe it or not!
It is obvious that the back and forth hatred is getting us nowhere except deeper down the rabbit hole. Stop and think!
By feeding into the hatred of 45 supporters, you are doing just that, feeding their ignorance. You do not have to be ignorant along with them. Let them feed off each other, not us. Do not give them the satisfaction of seeing their own hatred displayed on television, it serves no purpose other than to embolden them. If I've learned nothing else in my life about cowards and bullies, it's that if they don't have an audience, they have no power. Use that knowledge!
Do not engage them, that's what they want.
We fought in a peaceful way in the sixties and we changed the world for the better, it's time we learn from history!
May peace be within you!
