It's easy to call the protesters fascists, because their conflict with the police is overt. Tancredo can sit calmly in his suit while police aggress folks with legitimate concerns. But what about the violence that Tancredo supports and condones with his rhetoric? Where do we draw the line between the right to speak and speech that sustains human suffering? We all know that ICE has been cited for human rights violations, and that Tancredo is the most virulent source of hateful, racist, white supremacist views in the public eye today. So although he looks rational, his support of white supremacy has real human costs. Perhaps human life should be put over yet another rich white man's right to monologue.
