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."
