Letter: Right of free speech to all

I'm old enough to remember the terror of World War II. We were taught here in Utah to hate Hitler's Nazism. This revulsion increased after the war when its atrocities were revealed. The recent situation in Charlottesville, Virginia, paints an interesting picture: Neo-Nazis were staging a demonstration/parade when violence erupted. From the reports I read, it was instigated by some among us who "disagree" with them. The "media" universally condemned the neo-Nazis for causing the violence. Doesn't the Constitution grant the right of free speech to all, even those with whom we disagree?
