Annoyingly, all my results are MSM dicks, who don't bother to show long-form videos of the event, so it's hard to find the guy I was thinking of. When it was going down, there was a wonderful video of a black man in a Confederate uniform talking to protesters screaming all sorts of obscenities about history and its importance.
I really liked that. It was a cool thing to do.
I do have this, at least. I'll see if I can find one of the old streams I used to have of the whole thing, from a fairly long form video. Had a lot of people talking and expressing themselves, and a fair few were not white. It's possible the reason I'm not finding them, though, is that Youtube pulled them, unfortunately. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/black-supporter-unite-rally-matter-free-speech/story?id=57146215>And I didn't say they were white supremacists. I said they were OK with the white supremacy on display. Which is true, of anyone who was there. Even if they were black.
Well that's a group that could absolutely contain "very fine people", couldn't it?
I'm a free speech absolutist. I'd defend the right for these people to assemble, and speak their views. Regardless of who they are.
It's why I'm not in favor of communists being locked up, for example.
People who'd defend that belief, I'd frame as great people, yeah. It takes a pretty strong guy to stand up for people's rights to say what they wish to, despite how terrible they are.
I'm OK with white supremacy on display. It's better that way, since I can directly engage with them, and tell them why their beliefs are backwards, dumb, and more importantly, point to them to show others why their beliefs are backwards and dumb.
It's why I support everyone's right to free speech so heavily.
