What ever the National Republic National Party's intent, declaring a destructive crowd to be an example of "legitimate political discourse" is an unacceptable, undemocratic (small d) and unwelcome political position.

Attacking individuals, destroying property and threatening bodily harm to individuals who disagree with a point of view is not "legitimate political discourse."

Attacking, destroying and threatening is the behavior of authoritarian political thugs -- be they self righteous Christian vigilantes, Muslim fanatics, Nazi skinheads, state sponsored law enforcement officials or would be dictators.

Legitimacy derives from the adherence to legal requirements. If you do not like the law; use a legal process to change the law without attacking, destroying or threatening. The alternative is civil war or revolution.
