TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Police used tear gas to break up a rock-throwing crowd that had gathered to protest a planned march Saturday by the National Socialist Movement.
At least two dozen members of a Roanoke, Va.-based group that calls itself "America's Nazi Party" had gathered at Wilson Park just before noon and were to march under police protection.

Absolutely. I want to know how many of the rock throwers were also the ones who show up with the "we support the troops when they kill their officers" banners at "peace rallies"...and would scream to high heaven about their own free speech rights being violated, if looked at with an 'agressive' eye roll.
I'd also rather have them all in the open, so we can point and laugh.
Freedom of speech? To promote hatred and murder? Sorry, there is always a line that cannot and should not be crossed.
You are so right. Great idea.
Of course rock-throwing is wrong/stupid/illegal.
The question here is why did Toledo give a permit to "America's Nazi Party?"
Would they have granted a permit to the KKK?
There aren't many folks around, these days, that recognize the importance of freedom of speech. When such freedoms are denied to one group, whatever their merit or lack thereof, then the right is diminished. That's too high a price to pay.
How often we forget key constitutional issues due to the passions of the moment!
I'm sure they consider themselves, "elite."
These particular Nazis and the LLL rioters who opposed them obviously have not gotten the word about the coming thing in radical protest: the Red-Brown alliance. Just as David Duke went out of his way to show solidarity with Mama Moonbat Sheehan, the LLL vermin and Nazi vermin would have marched shoulder to shoulder if this had been a an anti-war demonstration or an attack on administration policy.
Throw in a few Islamic students and dreadlocked Mumia-cong, and you have a perfect storm of evil and drooling stupidity.
All the destructive, crazy, psychotic forces in the world seem to be concentrating on the same side of a variety of issues. Let it be so, a target-rich environment for the coming showdown.
Apparently, this group is KKK with a new name. Toledo has no choice but to allow them to assemble. The constitution guarantees them this right.
The "protestors" were Black Panthers and Anarchists. Looks like Toledo is in for some rocky times.
Opposition Planned to Neo-Nazi March in ToledoThere is always more to the story than the press ever bothers to share, investigate or understand. A classic example of one hate group clashing with another.
On Saturday October 15th, the National Socialist Movement - better known as America's Nazi Party - has announced that they will be marching through North Toledo to "protest black crime." The march route they have chosen takes them directly through a predominantly African-American and Polish community, where residents are preparing to oppose these fascists.
Anti-fascists from the Midwest are planning to join local residents in protesting against this neo-Nazi invasion of a Toldeo neighborhood. A counter-demonstration has been called for 8:30AM at Manhattan Plaza (near Manhattan and Stickney Avenues in the North End). Local anti-fas have received word that they will be joined by members of Anti-Racist Action and other organizations from all over the country.
Organizers of "Erase the Hate", a collaborative effort of 20 area educational, religious, and community organizations, are hoping for public support for their event--a counter-rally some distance for the neo-nazi march. It will be held at noon on Oct. 15 at the Zablocki Senior Center on Lagrange Street.
While it may appear that the NSM is just a fringe group, and that it is not worthwhile to oppose such a group, it is important to note that there is currently a power vacuum in the white power movement. With Matt Hale, the leader of the World Church of the Creator in jail, and the death of William Pierce, the founder and head of the National Alliance, other fascists are feeling lost without any strong leadership. Other white power organizations like the NSM realize that this power vacuum exists and are attempting to fill it. It is for this reason that the NSM will attract fascists of all stripes – in numbers – to their demonstration in Toledo. Neo-Nazis are currently seeking organization, structure, and public organizing – all of which they will be looking to the NSM for on October 15th.
For this reason alone, it is important that anti-fascists show opposition in Toledo. This is not a time that we can we can sit back and ignore the organizing fascists are currently engaging in. We CANNOT give the neo-Nazis any room to organize and recruit. We must not allow the existing power vacuum to be filled. We must be there on October 15th in Toledo to take away any illusion of organization and power the NSM is trying to present. We must stand up and join together, sending a clear message that such activity is not welcome in our communities.

Yep. And it's always so much easier to say "there is no line/anything goes" instead of working to decide where that line is to be drawn.
Would Toledo grant a permit to the KKK?
Crowds are NOT dispersing.....these people seem more organized than your run of the mill rioters.
Does anyone know when this "million more" march is supposed to take place in Washington?
Whoa...just saw some live shots on FOX..lots of rushing by police..looks like after the bad guys..hard to tell- they just cut to an ad.
Well, these guys got one in D.C. What's the difference?
sounds like they are making lots of arrests now...running short of the plastic cuffs.
Central near Mulberry, Stryker streets in North Toledo sounds like a no-man's land right now.
Excellent updates- thank you.
Sorry, but much as I'd like to machine-gun this sorry crowd of SS-wannabes, we cannot let anyone, especially a mob of LLL rioters and terror-tools, deprive them of their right to assemble and speak. If they come after us or our families with violent intent, well, it's a different story: bye-bye brownshirts, say hi to Hitler for me, and good riddance.
Stickney & Central.....Mulberry & Central....crowds at each are 200+ and destroying cars.
