Exclamation Klansmen, counter-protestors brawl in Virginia!

Quote:
Violence erupted and riot police were deployed to extinguish a planned rally where thousands of white nationalists were expected to gather for an alt-right protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday.

At least two people were seriously injured during a destructive clash between white nationalists and counter-protesters at Emancipation Park before the controversial Unite the Right rally, which was called off by the state.

First Lady Melania Trump admonished the day's outcome, tweeting: 'Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence.'

President Trump later chimed in and added: 'We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!'

Hundreds were seen stomping through the city, wearing militia uniforms, waving flags and chanting 'Blood and Soil' as they made their way towards the event on Saturday morning.

Counter-protesters flocked to the march in retaliation against the white nationalists neo-Confederates, and alt-right activists, screaming: 'We're here, we're gay, we fight the KKK!'

The protest hadn't officially started but social media videos showed the rally was escalating as people were seen throwing objects, breaking out into fights and mace being sprayed into the crowd.

The violence forced the city to declare a local emergency and determined that the event was an unlawful assembly around 11am, using tear gas bombs to clear out the unruly crowd.

Arrests were made after police in riot gear attempted to clear the park and a group of protesters pushed back against them, while the battle between the two protester groups continued to rage on in the streets of the city.

Exactly. And, he only made a statement after all the hoopla about him not making a statement. Notice he didn't say anything about the white supremacists?

Of course. I wouldn't be surprised if he funded the protest.

Well, this will put out the fire.

Quote:
“So this week, it’s Robert E. Lee, I noticed that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after. You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?”

— President Trump, at a news conference at Trump Tower.
