16Scenes That Prove All Hell Is Actually Breaking Loose inCharlottesville

Around noon, a car drove straight into a crowd of anti-racist protesters, severely injuring numerous people with at least one fatality. It is still not clear how badly they were hurt, and several local hospitals have not returned phone calls from those seeking information on the victims.


The large white nationalist gathering, billed as a “Unite the Right” protest, was the climax of more than a year-long debate in Charlottesville over the fate of the Robert E. Lee statue.

To be clear, these are NOT national guard but racist private militias posing as state actors to protect nazis and provoke.
