Day before Veterans Day 2012, Neo-Nazi's and KKK are going to save the country, coming to town to let us know, and at same time the oh so patriotic, some 2000, are waving flags and cheering on a parade for those of us who've served, the irony!!

Neo-Nazi/KKK rally draws counter protest, "clowns" group

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Nov 10, 2012 - The National Socialist Movement held a rally at the old City Hall site in Uptown Saturday.

The group says the annual event was meant to bring attention to illegal immigration and other crimes in the nation.

Leaders say they chose North Carolina because of the growing illegal immigration in this part of the country.

The rally drew hundreds but the majority were counter-protestors led by the Latin American Coalition. Anarchists and members of the Occupy movement were also in attendance.

Noise from the counter protestors who circled around NSM members largely drowned out the speeches made from a podium. read more>>>

Yup they came to town to spread their message of the countries downfall unless we join with them to save it from all them evils, but them, that are invading the society!

But hold on the oh so patriotic populace came out with flags waving and cheering on it's Military Veterans as many did yesterday and will today:

Queen City salutes veterans at uptown parade

Nov. 10, 2012 - Nearly 30 years ago, John Keey was rounding out his last year serving in the U.S. Marine Corps when his unit got called to Beirut, Lebanon.

Those memories are still fresh in the Charlotte native’s mind. He can still picture buildings collapsed after bombing raids, bulldozed dirt roads and watering holes that often doubled as cesspools.

Similar memories were easy to come by in uptown Charlotte over the weekend. Keey, along with an estimated 2,000 spectators, lined Tryon Street early Saturday to honor individuals for their service to the United States in the US Airways Salute to Veterans Parade. read more>>>

But wait, what's the most reported story being told, the sex and scandal, potential for National Security breaching, especially when she writes the book for fame and fortune, drivin Petraeus affair and has been since it broke. Especially here because the woman involved is a local girl right from one of the communities within the city limits.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      Dave, I don't hear many dems or others demanding Sacrifice especially during these past decade plus years, though at least they are going after the grossly wealthy and for me I'll be satisfied with that when they start paying up, especially as most also increased their wealth through investments involving these present wars as they have the past ones!

        My son goes so far to donate anything he has to share directly to them and share his food or eat with them together... on the streets.

        He has lost so much trust in the charitable organizations that he refuses to donate money or clothes or his time with the organizations and over-identifies with those homeless to a point that makes himself "sick".

        But then ... who is really sick here?

          The country is satisfied with only having the small groups, organizations and volunteers, actually doing the Responsibility while they wave the flags and scream at each other who loves the country the most!

          Most orgs are legit and started by and some join to help dedicated people who get it, too many aren't!

          But those who serve don't do so for small groups all over the country, We Serve The Whole Country!!

            to let "volunteers" do the charitable work, which should be the responsiblilty of the government. Charity is here, because government is failing in its job. It's especially "nice", because all those who "do not serve" and feel a little bit guilty about it, can at least feel good about themselves doing "volunteer charitable work". Sometimes you wonder, why their engagement never implements itself in the political process. It's always outside the political system.

            The American people are good-willing and give plenty, but that's almost abused by the government in the sense that their lack of living up their social contract seems to be "acceptable", because "if there is a will there is a way" to get away with not doing, what a government is supposedly to do, then it's just "okay".

              Should be doing as an extension of what the government, Us, already does to help make it easier, they shouldn't be doing because the government, Us, is Not Doing or is Trying to do but with limited funding as the country, Us, cheer on more wars, of choice, and thus build the needs even bigger!!

              Those volunteering or organizing  successful orgs should be able to get some help through government, Us, grants, as giving by others is also showing a tiny bit of that guilt but it can make one feel better, and not have to fight to maintain what they need to function and expand programs!

    beginnings are just ... awful.

    Media, fame and power are terrific drugs to manipulate people and your own self-image. When you start believing in your own crap, it's getting dangerous.

    At least the proceeds hopefully helped some Veteran to get what they deserved in medical help.

    I am sure there is more to come ... though I didn't follow the "affair" so far.

    I wished people would write their books by themselves and the so-called on the ground research isn't a tool to hide some ambitious woman's crush on her favorite male role model. If they at least were so courageous to own up to their own mistakes and writings.

      My first thought, outside of how could he be so freakin stupid what with his security clearances etc., was that another book was coming from her especially if he ever broke off the affair, fame and fortune, and it would be a best seller!!

      You can bet now ones a comin and it will be at the top of the best sellers list no matter what she writes or if they ever get together, which I doubt they will!!

    ... German conditions. Just that ... at least in the sixties and seventies and most probably into the eighties ... the general German population was more opposed to the neo-nazies than the "radical left".

    I think that changed with the next generations. But I don't know. Even don't want to know. Just want to hide somewhere, close my eyes, shut down my ears and remain silent. I am getting sicker and sicker, I think. Should take care of myself and let the world run its course.

      We feel guilty how good we have it ... compared to others. It just doesn't feel right and is a constant reminder how much things are broken.
