Charlottesville: American Cage Fight

From The Last English Prince:
The government allowed a cage fight and are surprised (not!) at the outcome. Here is what I believe: Marchers with a permit have a right to their day in the sun. 
It does not matter if others despise their political base or platform. It is Constitutional right. The shoulders of our nation are big enough to shake it off. 
Because it is “their party” all others should be under a right to observe, to speak out, but not to physically engage the marchers. I believe in a model of let them march, let them pass. 
Some of those marching engaged their right to bear arms. They did it responsibly and not a shot was fired. 
But we allowed a cage fight. 
Adversarial individuals were placed in close proximity and rules of engagement should have been established for those not involved in the march: 
You can watch, you can even shout out an insult. But you will treat this march like a visit to an art exhibit. Stand twelve feet clear of the walking art work so as to do them no harm. 
These are portraits to be added to our history of freedom of expression and the right to peaceful assembly. 
But we allowed a cage fight. I can see it no other way. It is abundantly clear. 
Adversaries were placed in close proximity, media was present, and perhaps the allowed cage fight atmosphere suited a national security agenda ...

Today's comments from Mayor Signer CNN Video: "...blame lies at the doorstep of the White House"

Via Reddit "Unite the right" is a Soros funded honeypot psy-op which employs the "Pied Piper" strategy to damage the Republican brand - this is what Creamer and Democracy partners have been up to.
NYT....are they/ can they begin to comprehend the monster they've created for themselves?

Not a cage match but the opening from Gangs of New York under cover of Constitutional assembly.
