Unfortunately thoughts and prayers are completely useless to anyone, but if you are protesting these idiots then good on you but be careful, they've already demonstrated their intent to protesters.

I was going to suggest the opposite (no, not join them) but every time one of these things pops up, it seems obvious to me that if people would just not even acknowledge them they might just give up and go away. After all, they are just haters looking for a fight.

That's the controversy... ignore them, peacefully protest them, or confront them physically.

Politics can be a difficult

Politics can be a difficult subject to discourse on, I see the far right party in Austria has come second in recent elections. I'm all for democracy, that's the bottom line and freedom of speech, and as long as people abide by those parameters then that's that, if people move into intimidation or violence then the law has to be acted on. I am no history expert, but it seems that whenever people are herded into an almost one size fits all through mechanisms like social engineering, and at the most extreme, dictatorships then sooner or later there is a back lash, so that is the thing to most fear...anyway...
