#Charlottesville 2 yrs old, myths live on. Is it time to consider charging #JasonKessler #UniteTheRight for sedition? His impractical #racist political strategy rejected by vast majority of #Republicans #Democrats, minority groups. "Fire in a crowded theater" is not free speech.
1. The case for sedition rests on premise that #JasonKessler was well aware, by virtue of education, that #UniteTheRight would fail. Motive obscure, but permit was obtained under false pretense. Recent history as #Democrat and #Occupy operative suspicious.
2. Damage to life and property in #Charlottesville rises to the level of a severe disturbance, 3 dead, 19 injured, property damage. #AntifaTerrorists arrival on day 2, not unexpected, showed callous disregard for public safety. Kessler UVA Charlottesville grad knew limitations
3.#UniteTheRight presents as a manipulative crowd drawing artifice, and an ideal frame for post event mass manipulation. The 'right' has never been united. But associative portrayal is a timeless strategy. Look how durable the #FinePeopleHoax has been.
The #Charlottesville #UniteTheRight Riot involved real #NeoNazis , but headed by pied pipers, political stunt actors #JasonKessler #RichardSpencer The "Gell-Mann" amnesia effect: reversing cause and effect. "Wet streets cause rain". #Media took the bait. #RacistTrump #RacistGOP ?
