Charlottesville rocked by white nationalist protests

And so it starts, right-wing violence. I'm surprised it took this long.

It's really ugly right now. My niece is a student at UVA. They are upset why the Charlottesville and Virginia state police stood by as the alt righties were able to conduct violent acts before anything was done. This after just a month ago the police had no problem arresting anti facist protesters facing off with them at the park. This isn't over by a long shot, and now after the death of that bystander today, it is going to leave police and Republicans at the state capital here that quietly support the white trash that is the unite the right terrorist organization, scrambling to separate themselves from them with elections looming in just a little less than three months.

A day late. A dollar short.

A Nazi slammed his car into a peaceful crowd of anti-protestors killing one and injuring 19. This is the same tactic that ISIS uses. Last night these right wing Nazis marched through campus with torches chanting "Heil Trump". Chump and Bannon have empowered these terrorist storm troopers.

I am so ashamed to live in a country with a President who plays golf while this is happening in one of our cities. It's sure to spread across the country. The white supremacists have had a taste of tacit approval and the joy of hurting other people. They won't stop. And, the new breed of anti-fascists are NOT pacifists. They are willing to fight back with whatever they're struck with.

I'm ashamed - and afraid that we're seeing the foundations of Civil War II.
Thanks from Camelot and tbbyolumbatobby

When the ISIS inspired terrorists ram cars into crowds in Nice France and other European cities, the right wing bemoans the end of the world as we know it. Today, a right wing white nationalist did the same and these cowardly right wingers won"t even consider it an act of terrorism. Hillary was so right. These creeps are deplorable and irredeemable. The end.
Thanks from Hollywood

Right-Wing nationalists? If the KKK was involved it was definitely ALT-Left Democrats. From the get-go the MSM used the term alt-right nationalists to set the narrative.

The only thing "alt" about pairing the KKK and the left is citizenship in your alt-reality.

A young woman, and two Virginia state troopers were killed today. 19 others were injured.

The Virginia state police, the Charlottesville police are pissed.

The alt right has no friends here. In fact they may want to keep a very low profile because there are a lot of officers just looking for a reason.

I wish them happy hunting.
