12. * sigh *

I consider this to be covert violence - a vicious street mob, actively agitating to criminalize innocent citizens, and threatening to erase their 14th Amendment rights - SOLELY because they are female - wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross:

I cannot think of any other mob threats to any other civil rights that, on DU, would just be shrugged off as "peaceable assembly". There would be commentary that if the mob is "peaceable" (i.e., no overt physical violence) then technically they are within their rights - but there would also be accompanying commentary that what the mob are advocating for is shameful and un-American.

Can you imagine that mob photo with confederate flags, white hoods, and posters supporting racial subjugation? Would the covert violence be more visible then?
