    At least one person is dead after a driver intentionally plowed into a group of anti-fascist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, following violent clashes that erupted between white nationalists and activists on Saturday.
    Authorities said the deceased victim was a 32-year-old woman, whose identity has not been released pending her family's notification.
    Video shows the Dodge Challenger accelerating into the crowd throwing bodies into the air as people scream before reversing at high speed – sending another 19 people to the hospital for their injuries.
    It came after violent clashes erupted as hundreds of white supremacists including armed militias marched into Charlottesville sparking violent confrontations with the counter-protesters. Police cleared the scene with tear gas but the violence continued.
    The alleged driver of the car was apprehended and is currently in police custody. The car is registered to James Alex Fields, 20, of Ohio, according to The Washington Post. He was arrested a few blocks away from the bloody scene.
    Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail Superintendent Martin Kumer told The Post that a man with the same name and age was booked Saturday on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding, failure to stop for an accident involving a death, and hit and run. Fields is being held without bail.
    Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said a total of 35 people had been treated for injuries, 14 of those were from individual engagements on the streets.
    Horrifying video from the scene of the attack shows the silver muscle car speeding towards a group of fleeing anti-fascist protesters.
    Another clip shows the vehicle ramming into the crowd at high speed and victims crying out in pain as they desperately seek medical help.
    Witnesses said the car was traveling up to 40 miles an hour when it hit and reversed before ramming into the crowd again and speeding off with someone's shoe attached to its bumper.
    Virginia Gov Terry McAuliffe strongly condemned all of the so-called 'patriotic' white nationalists during a press conference Saturday evening.
    'Go home. You are not wanted in this great commonwealth,' McAuliffe proclaimed.
    'You are not patriots,' he said. 'You came here today to hurt people and that is not patriotic,' McAuliffe added.
    Witnesses said moments before the car plowed into the crowd, a counter-protester had allegedly thrown a rock at the car, causing the driver to swivel around and ram into people and two cars in its way.

    I'm amazed that there was no mention of Charlottesville before you posted this.
    A police chopper went down and 2 were killed in it.
    All the libs are blaming Trump. And the stupid republicans are acting even stupider than usual.

    Terry McDucky is a Democrap Hitlery loyalist that is dirty who governs Va. The city of Charlotte has an assistant mayor that surprise surprise can't be web searched now who has made blatantly racist comments and actions supposedly fired from the school system but embraced by the city's elites. He was a key person who was pushing to remove civil war memorials-which was the impetus for this rally.

    The city attempted to illegally shut down the alt right-free speech rally and a federal judge as well as the ACLU supported the right to speak.

    Using Berkeley, Kommifornia tactics the city used the police to force the rally to disperse and funneled them into the waiting ANTIFA, BLM, etc. after the rally was attacked rocks-pepper spray etc. by counter protesters.

    Instead of protecting the rally the police were used to implement the desires of their leaders, which was to shut it down.

    Governor Terry McFluffer made a public display of how these NAZI's created violence and disrupted the lives of normal citizens in as much as the rhetoric when the Democraps claimed Trump rallys fostered violence as they paid 2nd and 3rd parties to train and pay hired agitators to go stir **** up then blame Trump.

    So very communist/socialist but then they ran Bernie Sanders on their platform and for good reason.

    Default Police Stood By As Mayhem Mounted in Charlottesville

    Police Stood By As Mayhem Mounted in Charlottesville

    State police and national guardsmen watched passively for hours as self-proclaimed Nazis engaged in street battles with counter-protesters.

    A.C. Thompson and Robert Faturechi, ProPublica, and Karim Hajj, special to ProPublica. ProPublica

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — There was nothing haphazard about the violence that erupted today in this bucolic town in Virginia’s heartland. At about 10 a.m. today, at one of countless such confrontations, an angry mob of white supremacists formed a battle line across from a group of counter-protesters, many of them older and gray-haired, who had gathered near a church parking lot. On command from their leader, the young men charged and pummeled their ideological foes with abandon. One woman was hurled to the pavement, and the blood from her bruised head was instantly visible.

    Standing nearby, an assortment of Virginia State Police troopers and Charlottesville police wearing protective gear watched silently from behind an array of metal barricades — and did nothing.

    It was a scene that played out over and over in Charlottesville as law enforcement confronted the largest public gathering of white supremacists in decades. We walked the streets beginning in the early morning hours and repeatedly witnessed instances in which authorities took a largely laissez faire approach, allowing white supremacists and counter-protesters to physically battle.

    Officials in Charlottesville had publicly promised to maintain control of the “Unite the Right” rally, which is the latest in a series of chaotic and bloody racist rallies that have roiled this college town, a place deeply proud of its links to Thomas Jefferson and the origins of American Democracy.

    But the white supremacists who flooded into the city’s Emancipation Park — a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee sits in the center of the park — had spent months openly planning for war. The Daily Stormer, a popular neo-Nazi website, encouraged rally attendees to bring shields, pepper spray, and fascist flags and flagpoles. A prominent racist podcast told its listeners to come carrying guns. “Bring whatever you need, that you feel you need for your self defense. Do what you need to do for security of your own person,” said Mike “Enoch” Peinovich on The Right Stuff podcast.

    And the white supremacists who showed up in Charlottesville did indeed come prepared for violence. Many wore helmets and carried clubs, medieval-looking round wooden shields, and rectangular plexiglass shields, similar to those used by riot police.

    Clad in a black, Nazi-style helmet, Matthew Heimbach told ProPublica, “We’re defending our heritage.” Heimbach, who heads the Traditionalist Workers Party, a self-declared fascist group, said he was willing to die for his cause and would do whatever it took to defend himself. He was surrounded by a brigade of white supremacists, including members of the League of the South and the National Socialist Movement.

    By the time Heimbach and his contingent arrived in downtown Charlottesville shortly before 11 a.m., what had started hours earlier with some shoving and a few punches had evolved into a series of wild melees as people attacked one another with fists, feet, and the improvised weapons they’d brought with them to the park. White supremacists and anti-racists began blasting each other with thick orange streams of pepper spray.

    The police did little to stop the bloodshed. Several times, a group of assault-rifle-toting militia members from New York State, wearing body armor and desert camo, played a more active role in breaking up fights.

    Shortly before noon, authorities shut down the rally and the related demonstrations and marched the white supremacists out of the park and into the streets.

    Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy defended the police tactics. “I’m not in the business of throwing our police department under the bus, because they’re doing the best job they can, “ said Bellamy. “I don’t think the police officers were just twiddling their thumbs.”


    The skirmishes culminated in what appears to have been an act of domestic terrorism, with a driver ramming his car into a crowd of anti-racist activists on a busy downtown street, killing one and injuring 19 according to the latest information from city officials. Charlottesville authorities tonight reported that a 20-year-old Ohio man had been arrested and had been charged with murder.

    Two state police officers also died in a helicopter crash.

    At a brief press conference this evening, Virginia officials declined to answer questions about the police response, but said they were not taken surprise by the violence or the number of protesters. “This could have been a much worse day,” said Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, “We planned for a long time for today’s incidents.”

    Charlottesville police Chief Al Thomas said at least 35 people had been injured — many of them from violent encounters between white supremacists and the counter-protesters. He said nobody had been wounded due to confrontations between police and the public.

    In the weeks leading up to the protest, city and state officials put together a detailed plan for the rally, mobilizing 1,000 first responders, including 300 state police troopers and members of the National Guard. Judging from how events unfolded today, it appears that the strategy was to avoid direct confrontations with the protesters.

    Miriam Krinsky, a former federal prosecutor who has worked on police reform efforts in Los Angeles, said it was too early to assess the law enforcement response in Charlottesville.

    But she said a strategy of disengagement generally works to embolden unruly crowds.

    “If things start to escalate and there’s no response, it can very quickly get out of control,” she said. “Individuals can and will get hurt.”

    But an overly forceful response, she said, can also make the situation worse. Krinsky said attempts to seize weapons might have led to more clashes between police and protesters. “Trying to take things away from people is unlikely to be a calming influence,” she told ProPublica.

    A good strategy, she said, is to make clashes less likely by separating the two sides physically, with officers forming a barrier between them. “Create a human barrier so the flash points are reduced as quickly as possible,” she said.

    A.C. Thompson and Karim Hajj reported from Charlottesville, Va. Robert Faturechi reported from New York.

    Quote Of The Decade

    Posted on August 13, 2017 | 4 comments
    “…For people like Caroline Zero and Lacy MacAuley, this is reason enough to start murdering people. To them, this parade is violence because it is the nullification of their movement, which is the nullification of them. Their entire identity is now defined by their largely imaginary struggle against the mysterious forces of institutional racism, white privilege and invisible Hitlers…”
