How Big a Spark to Ignite This Tinder?

Millions turned out to protest immigration reform yesterday. There are some very basic questions I’d like the mainstream media to ask, starting with who’s paying for the flags, the permits, and the crowd control? The Ford Foundation?

Dallas Protests April 10 Half Million

More important, what happens if and when a group of moron skinheads (or agents provocateurs masquerading as same) decides that they’ve taken all they can stand and wades into a group like the one in Dallas yesterday (above) and starts swinging or shooting? How can the police possibly control a crowd of half a million?

I fear that one small spark can turn this protest movement violent. There are people on both sides of this issue who want exactly that.

The answer to the question of crowd control is unpleasant, but simple: The same way the Chinese brought the crowd at Tianemen Square under control; the same way order was restored in New Orleans after Katrina: The military. Martial law.

This is going to be an interesting summer.
