Neo Nazi White supremacists, members of The National Socialist Movement, marched in Los Angeles today against Illegal Immigration. Group members said Los Angeles was chosen for the rally because of the large immigrant population in the city. It wouldnt take long before police were dealing with fights between the supremacists and counter protesters. During the Rally it was announced that The National Socialist Movement would be backing politicians that shared their beliefs. When a speaker for the group took the podium, group members raised their arms in Nazi salute and shouted "Seig Heil", but as much as they shouted, counter protesters raised their voices high above that of the Nazi group. During the rally, fights ensued, objects were thrown, and people from both sides were arrested.
To me, much like Westboro Baptist and their hateful protests I have written about, I fail to understand the hate. I understand wanting people to be Naturalized Citizens of the Untied States if they are going to work here and take advantage of what this country has to offer, but spreading hate and acting like Nazis isnt helping already strained race relations. The only thing it is doing is seeming to put targets on them and nothing else.
