Opposing Nazis

On August 26, a neo-Nazi group will be holding a rally at the state capitol. I think the Steven Morrison of the Madison Jewish Community Council has hit upon the proper response:
"We encourage everyone to totally ignore the rally, thereby depriving them of any audience at all. Far better, join in celebrating Madison Jewish life and the Madison Jewish community's long-standing support of equal opportunity and gay and immigrant rights the next day.

"This annual MJCC Jewish community picnic takes place -- rain or shine -- from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 27 at the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Jewish Community Campus, 7762 Highway PD, Verona.

"A second suggestion is to make a donation to an LGBT, immigrant rights, Latino, African-American, or Jewish organization -- perhaps a few dollars for every neo-Nazi who shows up at their hate-fest.

"These two suggestions are the antithesis of what these neo-Nazis are all about. What better way to let them know they wasted their time and money coming to Madison."
