I blame this on Gov. McCauliffe.

Earlier today, police routed the Alt-Righters through a gauntlet of Antifa. Fights ensued and they proceeded to cancel the rally planned for later.

That's the key here... They allowed the sides to meet and fight to cancel the legal rally.

Here's the deal... This all goes back to counter-protestors. They shouldn't be allowed anywhere near opposing rallies. I don't care what side you're on, they should be separated by hundreds of yards.

Clear and simple.

2. Giant over reaction

Forget the car, it happened much later after the "riot" was over. All I saw was some pushing and shoving, a fist or two and some name calling.

I've been in rowdier bars.

9. 'Righty' did so with a legal permit and everything.

'Lefty' did not. Antifa came as they always do to promote and perpetrate violence.

I have been saying for months that they will get someone killed on either the left or the right. Today it happened. Was it intentional or unintentional. The FBI and police will determine that and deal with it accordingly as they should.

But the bottom line is that the left has condoned and supported either tacitly or directly the violence coming from Antifa and BLM for months if not years. What? Did y'all really think it wouldn't lead to this kind of violence and death eventually?

7. Leave History Alone



I am a bit of a Civil War Buff...One of the reasons I live in Southern Maryland is that I enjoy visiting the Battlefields.

Leave our History be. Those that don't know the failures of the past are doomed to repeat them

10. Yes, I agree.

MLK and Malcolm did not call for the removal of Civil War monuments or flags. They were actually concerned with real, not imagined, realities of racism. My black father helped me to make a paper mache bust of Robert E. Lee for my 5th grade social studies class. We discussed the war, slavery, and never forgetting the past. He admired Lee for the gentleman and warrior that he was. Those of us with an education and not a mind full of bullshit and propaganda understand the complexities of history.

These fools do not.

shoulders for this one. I want to know not only why the groups were tossed in together, but why it's being said that LE stood back to let a lot of this happen. Terry grandstanded for the Democratic presidential nomination here and it went terrifically wrong.

18. Virginia REPUBLICANS speak out.

Ed Gillespie, Republican candidate for Governor, on Twitter:

“Having a right to spew vile hate does not make it right. It is painful to see these ugly events in Charlottesville last night and today. These displays have no place in our Commonwealth, and the mentality on display is rejected by the decent, thoughtful and compassionate fellow Virginians I see every day. I know we all appreciate the law enforcement officials maintaining order and protecting public safety there.”

He later added with regard to the terrorist-attack-by-car on 4th and Main Streets:

“Definitely tragic effect of vile neo Nazi and white supremacist actions.”

21. How Trump Took Hate Groups Mainstream

Trump is being given credit for this march by David Duke and the KKK. Trump helped make the KKK and white supermacists mainstream http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/10/donald-trump-hate-groups-neo-nazi-white-supremacist-racism/

“I urge all readers of this site to do whatever they can to make Donald Trump President,” wrote Andrew Anglin, publisher of the neo-Nazi site Daily Stormer, 12 days later. Anglin, a 32-year-old skinhead who wears an Aryan “Black Sun” tattoo on his chest and riffs about the inferior “biological nature” of black people, hailed Trump as “the only candidate who is even talking about anything at all that matters.”

Meet the neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and other extremists who have endorsed Trump. John Bazemore/AP
This neo-Nazi seal of approval initially seemed like an aberration. But two months later, when Trump released his immigration policy, far-right extremists saw a clear signal that Trump understood their core anger and fear about America being taken over by minorities and foreigners. Trump’s plan to deport masses of undocumented immigrants and end birthright citizenship was radical and thrilling—”a revolution,” in the words of influential white nationalist author Kevin MacDonald, “to restore a White America.”

Trump’s move was a “game changer,” said MacDonald, a 70-year-old silver-haired former academic who edits the Occidental Observer, which the Anti-Defamation League calls “online anti-Semitism’s new voice.” Trump, he wrote, “is saying what White Americans have been actually thinking for a very long time.”

“Stunning,” raved Peter Brimelow, editor of the anti-immigrant site VDare.com. “The thing that delighted us the most,” he wrote, was Trump’s plan to close “the ‘Anchor Baby’ loophole,” denying citizenship to the American-born children of immigrants—a policy that Brimelow said he had been advocating for more than a decade.

Trump “may be the last hope for a president who would be good for white people,” remarked Jared Taylor, who runs a white nationalist website called American Renaissance and once founded a think tank dedicated to “scientifically” proving white superiority. Taylor told us that Trump was the first presidential candidate from a major party ever to earn his support because Trump “is talking about policies that would slow the dispossession of whites. That is something that is very important to me and to all racially conscious white people.”

Trump fever quickly spread: Other extremists new to presidential politics openly endorsed Trump, including Don Black, a former grand dragon of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and founder of the neo-Nazi site Stormfront; Rocky Suhayda, chair of the American Nazi Party; and Rachel Pendergraft, a national organizer for the Knights Party, the successor to David Duke’s Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. Richard Spencer, an emerging leader among a new generation of white nationalists known as the “alt right,” declared that Trump “loves white people.”
