I think resorting to violence only strengthens them, and discredits others who oppose what they're saying.

If we're really incapable of countering their words/ideas nonviolently, I fear they've already won.

However, not only do they have no intention of debating in good faith, attempting to do so legitimises them by implying that it is a perfectly valid standpoint to have. Frankly, as much as I detest violence, I do not believe there is an entirely non-violent solution to this problem. They cannot be allowed to organise - and make no mistake; that's what they're doing with their demonstrations and their presentations. They're recruiting.
