White supremacists rally in charlottesville

Charlottesville braces for white nationalist 'Unite the Right' rally - CNN


Quote:
(CNN)White nationalists and counterprotesters are expected to flood downtown Charlottesville Saturday as the Virginia city braces for the "Unite the Right" rally.

By noon, thousands are expected to gather in Emancipation Park, where barricades have been placed in proximity to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
These people are racists.

Look on YouTube at the videos posted by attendees from their hotel rooms to see just what kind of people are there.

White Nationalists. Unity. Robert E. Lee. Emancipation Park.

That's a whole lotta cognitive dissonance packed into a single celebration.

Watching a stream on periscope...

Groups of people (antifa and nazis, I guess) already breaking out into fist fights and the white supremacists only showed up 5 minutes ago.

They are marching with those on the front line wearing home made shields and armor. It'd be precious if they didn't actually think they were going into battle.

He will be incapable of criticizing the white nationalists.

Like it or not this is part of our freedom. I hate it and it's no different than when "protestors" loot and burn down cities. I really believe that both extreme right and left are a small percentage of the country but tend to get the most coverage from the media.

The percentage of violent protesters is significantly higher here than it has ever been at a significant left wing protest.

Left wing protests aren't violent at 10am.

I'm not here to defend either as worse than the other. Anyone who uses the right to protest as a reason to harm someone or someone's property should lose that right

There is a growing frustration on the left about false equivalency lumping
If one person murders and another bears false witness about the way his wife looks in those jeans, then yes, technically both are 'sinners'
But to stop there as some cogent analysis of the way of the world is a bit lazy

An also, by and large antifa is anarchistic so not exactly leftist (against the right is not, per se, leftist)

Antifa are a bunch of idiots that don't know what they believe. They're stupid children playing at being revolutionaries and their back could be easily broken if anyone felt they were worth the effort.

I'm far more concerned with people with an actual ethos and platform. Ya know, like white supremacists.

Trump's response carefully crafted to not denounce the white nationalists directly, but can easily be interpreted by the alt-right as a denouncement of reverse-racism.

Antifa are nothing more than reactionaries classified as "leftists" because they oppose the extreme right control of federal government.

The White is Right people love to espouse the "We are advocating for white rights just as any other interest group would advocate for theirs" nonsense. Seems they forgot or never realized that the reason those groups have to organize and take action collectively is because of THEIR control over this nation's politics and priorities for 95% of its history.

Car drove into group of protestors about 20 min ago.

Saw it on periscope. Looked intentional. Definitely several serious injuries.
