This strikes me as the right way to think about violence and property damage at anti-Trump and anti-Nazi rallies. The people who want to take away rights don’t deserve peace, but does the property damage serve the purpose of restoring peace by actually silencing them? Or does it just reinforce their message?
And that’s just the question of whether it’s justified for the core of a protest to use violence or property damage. It’s definitely wrong for a black bloc to come in and hijack the main protest by forcing it to appear violent.
