'Grand Flagging' demonstrators converge on downtown Asheville

Honest question, as I’ve not really been keeping up with local news: didn’t the Asheville police tear gas people and destroy medical supplies during the George Floyd/BLM protests and is there some reason why suddenly when it’s “likely armed” white nationalists we’re all being officially told to just stay out of their way and let them demonstrate so no one gets hurt? Like the responsibility to keep them peaceful by not provoking them or engaging in conflict lies with the public?? The difference in attitude and respect level from authorities seems stark and unbelievable.

Well... first off they weren’t violent. The didn’t destroy property or block traffic. None of them seemed armed. They have first amendment rights. I may disagree with their philosophy... but they peacefully gathered and stated their case. Which we as a society are free to ignore or combat with better ideas.

Why does this handful of out of town simpletons even make the news? All they want is attention.
