Hate in any form should never go unchecked. When it does it grows, it spreads, and it becomes emboldened. It becomes so bold that people pridefully gather to march behind and salute the nazi flag. They don shirts quoting and idolizing Adolph Hitler. They harm and kill others for their race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity with impunity. And it spreads like a virus as others become emboldened to do the same. Disturbingly this is not in reference to 1942 Germany but what is happening today in 2017 in America. What is taking place in Charlottesville, VA is terrorism plain and simple. It is evil and it must not be given legitimacy on any level.
