Like it or not, The KKK does have a constitutional right to assemble

They had a permit to march. Counter-protesters did not.

Everyone should have expected violence when BLM and Antifa were shipped in to counter-protest their assembly.

Wait, other racist violent "protestors" showed up with the intent of violence?

Wait, there was hate on all sides, even the extreme alt left?

Hmmm..

At some point we need to stop making the hate groups seems bigger than what they are, and stop giving them so much attention.

We as a country need to stop fanning the flames.

No one said they don't have a right to free speech and/or assembly.

No one had to be "shipped in" to counter protest.  There are plenty of people who are appalled by the Nazis & KKK and chose to be there. 

Everyone should have expected violence when racist terrorists decided to hold a rally.

It was until it wasn't. It would have remained peaceful if other groups hadn't been allowed to illegally storm the lawful assembly.

There was no violence until the KKK's rights were threatened with violence.

The government could not stop them but they do not have a constitutional right to not be faced with opposition to their message.

You can not assert that with any sort of accuracy or authority.

No one will ever know.

Actually, it was covered from the beginning via live feeds. It was a peaceful assembly. Until it wasn't.
