I don't think they are motivated by fear. This is a strategy. What Northam and the Democrats are doing is working with the media to create a narrative. The narrative is the protestors are dangerous extremists (militiamen, racists, etc.) who want violence. I saw one story characterizing the protestors as "thousands of militiamen". All you have to do is follow MSM accounts to see the picture they are creating. Its a catch 22. The protestors are either forced to participate in the phony state of emergency or violate it so Northam gets his wish for physical confrontation hoping to get the moral high ground. Either way it "validates" the narrative.
