    The Selma Marches resulted in many people getting attacked by the state troopers during the first two march attempts, but the FBI, US Marshals and the US Army were on hand for the third march.

    •  I am beginning to think a lot of our current crap (0+ / 0-)

      is from not making sure those ideas were not put down in 1865 and 1962 as severely as denazification in 1945 was envisioned (we eventually let that one slip too though it worked reasonably well).

      When troops and marshalls were attacked on at the University of Mississippi the response should have been drastic, visible to all and very, very memorable to those with inclinations to talk insurrection, secession or attack U.S. troops in the U.S. In particular, Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker should have been made an example of what treason brings.

      The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
