So when Martin Luther King Left Alabama to help others protest, you see that as bad? We have a long history of people going to other areas of the country to help protest. Imagine what the country would look like if everyone stayed only in the areas you see fit to keep them.
This is actually a very good point on locale. The key difference is that MLK advocated and practiced non-violence, while current crop of protesters relies on violence. So in a way, it is a hypothetical one, like discussing militaristic Ghandi that raised an army and fought bloody civil war against British.
