White Nationalists March on Charlottesville

Torch-bearing white nationalists march ahead of alt-right rally


(CNN)
Alt-right activists held torches and marched late Friday through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville.

Chanting "blood and soil" and "one people, one nation, end immigration," the group rallied around a statue of Thomas Jefferson before they clashed with counterprotesters, CNN affiliate WWBT reported.

The march came hours before a Saturday rally that police anticipate will attract as many as 2,000 to 6,000 people, in an event that could be the "largest hate-gathering of it's kind in decades in the United States," as described by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Before the group left the university's grounds when police arrived and ruled it unlawful assembly, outraged city and UVA officials condemned Friday's gathering.

"In my 47 years of association with @UVA, this was the most nauseating thing I've ever seen. We need an exorcism on the Lawn," Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics tweeted.

The far-right group, composed mostly of men in their 20s and 30s, were heard chanting “white lives matter!”, “you will not replace us!”, and “Jews will not replace us!”

Protesters were heard chanting the Nazi slogan ‘blood and soil’ during the event

How sad that a group chanting
"Blood and soil",  "End immigration",  “white lives matter!”, “you will not replace us!”, and “Jews will not replace us!”
would choose to rally around the statue of a man who wrote;


"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal"

Virginia governor declares state of emergency as Charlottesville protests turn violent

The GOP vocally all better quickly denounce any attachment to this element.

No tweets yet. He must be busy.
That sand trap on #15 can be a reel bitch.

Trump better act soon to set the record straight.
It seems that some of these guys have the wrong idea about him.



"Why we voted for Donald Trump": David Duke explains the white supremacist Charlottesville protests

David Duke, the former KKK grand wizard, is unambiguous about what Saturday’s alt-right and neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, means to him: It’s the fulfillment of President Trump’s vision for America.

“We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said from the rally, calling it a “turning point.” “We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what we believed in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back.”
