Update 3: A car has plowed into a group of counter-protesters at the Charlottesville rally, with local media reporting numerous heavy injuries. Video footage taken at the scene shows a damaged light-colored vehicle which appears to have been rammed by a larger, darker car at the scene. Local media describe the incident as a hit and run, with the vehicle, which reportedly had no license plate, quickly leaving the scene after the attack.

Update 2: Trump has responded to the Charlottesville protests, says "there is no place for this kind of violence in America"

Update: A state of emergency has been declared for Charlottesville due to the fighting, clashes and "chaos" at the rally. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency in the city to aid in the local response. He earlier said the Virginia National Guard will be "standing by to respond if needed."

The city and county issued a declaration of local emergency for Charlottesville city and county, when the scene turned violent well before the "Unite the Right" rally, scheduled for noon, officially began. The city said two people were treated for serious but non-life-threatening emergencies from altercations by 10:30 a.m. Counter-protesters also flooded the area to demonstrate their disdain for the protesters' message.

Fighting has broken out at a ‘Unite the Right’ rally in Charlottesville, Virginia between right-wing protesters demonstrating against the removal of a Confederate-era statue from Emancipation Park, and various groups of counter demonstrators.  The rally also aimed to protest against Charlottesville's decision to rename downtown Lee Park, now called Emancipation Park, besides the statue removal.

Some 2,000 to 6,000 people are expected to attend the rally, which is expected to be one of the largest far-right gatherings in the U.S. in at least a decade.

The Unite the Right rally aims to “unify the right-wing against a totalitarian Communist crackdown” and “affirm the right of Southerners and white people to organize for their interests just like any other group is able to do.”

Among the protesters were spotted both nazi flags...

... and KKK attire:

The clashes come a day after hundreds of white marchers carrying torches clashed briefly with counterprotesters on the Charlottesville campus of the University of Virginia on Friday, the eve of a rally planned by thousands of "far-right nationalists". The marchers chanted as made their way from Nameless Field through the sprawling campus to the school's Thomas Jefferson statue, where they were met by counterprotesters, an affiliate of NBC news said.

At least one person was arrested and several on campus were treated for minor injuries, the Daily Progress newspaper said. "I am beyond disgusted by this unsanctioned and despicable display of visual intimidation on a college campus," Mayor Mike Singer said in a statement.

One clip posted on Twitter showed various armed members of an unidentified militia arriving at Emancipation Park carrying guns and rifles.

A separate clip shows another group joining the rally, chanting "bllod and soil" as it arrives:

According to Reuters, the events highlight a persistent debate in the U.S. South over the display of the Confederate battle flag and other symbols of the rebel side in the Civil War, fought over the issue of slavery. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has said extremist groups have threatened to try and attack rally participants, to express opposition to the statue's removal.

Supporters call such statues racially insensitive, while opponents say Confederate symbols honor Southern heritage, and calls to remove them reflect "empty political correctness."

 

Lee was a symbol for white people threatened by immigration and "ethnic cleansing," rally organizer and freelance journalist Jason Kessler said in an interview with Pennsylvania's WHLM radio on Thursday.

Meanwhile, NBC notes that the National Guard is on standby, with Virginia State Police coordinating security in the city of 45,000, the governor said in a statement. "I want to urge my fellow Virginians, who may consider joining, either in support or opposition to the planned rally, to make alternative plans," McAuliffe said.

The communist assholes can fuck off. They are government titsuckers just like niggers.

As far as white people getting pissed off enough to protest against another city removing historical statues? Good! What took so long? People are fucking pissed. White people are passed over for jobs because we don't fit an affirmative action quota.

Niggers can run amok, every day of the fucking week, tear up stores, commit murder (and get away with it) and all most white people do is make excuses. Am I racist? Fuck yeah. Why? I woke up to the hatred that is endemic in the nigger community.

True. Utube has opened my eyes. Colin Flaherty's channels. Tommy Sotomayor's channels. Cynthia G's channel. Everyone Hates Angel's channel.

If people think what I said was bad take a few minutes and visit Cynthia G or Everyone Hates Angel's Utube channels.

Here is Colin's morning news clip: https://youtu.be/23qJbAeUfqU

Here is Cyntiha G's latest rant about the white demon. https://youtu.be/UY-Dh4bvwGU

And here is a group video of the black racists discussing how much they hate whites. https://youtu.be/ORAn-HBE5sk

Any rational-minded person recognizes this, despite the blackout in media coverage. The lack of reporting on this is criminally negligent. And the knock out game ... some white person, somewhere is getting knocked out ... wait a second ... right now.

I had no idea how biased all of the MSM news coverage had become. The double standard and hypocrisy are sickening.

What do you expect? Jews have gotten a stranglehold on the mass media. They own it ALL.

To paraphrase...

Just ignore the Assholes.   Staging counter protests only gives them publicity.

It's a free country.  Leave the idiots alone with their pointed little hats for their pointed little heads.

tmosley's picture

They created those "assholes" with their complete and utter inability to ignore them, or leave them alone.

This is NOT a free country, and hasn't been for a long time. Alternative viewpoints have been crushed and supressed for decades, and now that it has gone too far, moving into the mainstream and simply attacking people for BEING white, everything has and is boiling over.

Whether or not you support these "nazis", the left is the side that has goaded them into violence, and now that that barrier has been breached, I don't see much at all standing between the current situation and mass graves on the sides of freeways.

Xena fobe's picture

The sides of the feewways are already occupied with homeless camps consisting of displaced white workers.  Have to put the mass graves elsewhere.

I suppose the "far-right" demonstrators were fighting themselves?

 

As for the one pic os a Nazi flag in the paarade, who was this guy? Agent-provocateur?

Confederate battle flag and other symbols of the rebel side in the Civil War, fought over the issue of slavery.

I don't understand the concept of revisionist history, there is no way to wipe away the horrible crimes of the past. In fact, these monuments serve as a reminder that never again should anything like this ever be allowed to happen.

Pure Bullshit!!

"According to Reuters, the events highlight a persistent debate in the U.S. South over the display of the Confederate battle flag and other symbols of the rebel side in the Civil War, fought over the issue of slavery."

This was a war over 'State's Rights'. It only became an issue of slavery as the North was losing the war and Lincoln sought to shore foreign support for his usurption of the Constitution by claiming the cause for emancipation. The fact that Northerners were fighting to free 'slaves' was a new twist to the Northern public, which sparked riots in New York. Anyone in the North speaking against Lincolns policies were jailed, beaten or shot.

True.  My ancestors were radical and very active Abolitionists, starting when they got off the boat in the mid-1600s and started protesting against the Quakers in Philadelphia, who were very rich indeed from the slave trade.

Union forces kept harrassing my ancestors until the Emancipation Proclamation, and even beyond, in southern Ohio, enforcing slavery and trying tp stop the Underground Railroad.

Slavery was definitely an issue, but it wasn't the major issue until Emancipation became a useful tactical tool.

So, the Socialist/Communist, red-flag-honoring Antifa thugs want to mix it up with the National Socialists? Proponents of two of history's biggest, most murderous lost causes? 

Burn out the contagion before it spreads. Tell them to take it outside city limits, and then let them go at each other, 'death match' style (like what should have been allowed to happen during WW2). Arrest whatever is left alive.

haha, what a joke of a country. Changing names of schools, changing names of parks, having a bunch of libtard cult freaks clashing with a bunch of (apparent) nazi/kkk cult freaks if these videos are an accurate display. Ignorance fighting ignorance. How brilliant.  

Only in 'murica.

Undercover Jews are carrying those Nazi flags.

To Hell In A Handbasket's picture

I'm sorry and I'm one of the biggest Jew bashers on here, but the Jews do not need to clandestinely infiltrate these retarded groups and carry swastika's. We have enough white idiots who will do happily do it on their own volition.

So do not go all reverse PC and dismiss the fact, we don't have our fair share of retards and hot-heads. These fools don't need any outside encouragement, they are already self motivated. If these fools go down this road, they will lose support very quickly.

Tiwin's picture

Maybe Jews dont NEED to carry swastikas, but they STILL DO. Its a giant false flag gutter. Spray painted swastikas on the synagogue wall? Most likely the rabbi did it.

Overturned gravestones. Whatcha doin rabbi?

A noose on a black kids dorm door? Most likely placed there herself. And the JewTube 6 oklock nooze breathlessly reports it. Mux six million an all the eternal victims.

 Buildings collapse from fire? Never before in history? ? the steel shipped off to china rapido? Thanks ya'all.

ROFLMAO at both the stupid comment & the # of upvotes it's received

 

“This reminds me of anti-Semitism,” Putin said. “The Jews are to blame for everything. An idiot cannot do anything himself, so the Jews are to blame. But we know what such attitudes lead to. They end with nothing good.”

 

To Hell In A Handbasket's picture

The confederate flag, right beside the swastika. One big happy family. These pricks sit at the opposite political end of the retard scale, to the SJW. Where are the brains in these groups/movements? Forget brains and planning, just bring out the goons singing "White power! White Power!"

I want intelligence from the alt-right, not emotions. TPTB must be laughing their tits off, while these 2 opposing groups go at it and the real architects of our misery and destruction escape.

The last thing TPTB want, is an uneasy alliance between these group, to temporarily unite in order to get rid of the real enemy.  That takes brains, but instead we get identity politics on one side vs confederate and swastika flag on the other. FUCKING RETARDS!

I am a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Zeb Vance Camp. Sixteen Confederate Veteran ancestors in my linage. Let it be known that we are disgusted by the use of the Confederate battle Flag by drooling Neanderthals who do not even know what they are doing.

People can remove monuments but the Sons of Confederate Veterans buy acreage to preserve battlefields from development. Plenty of monuments both North and South on those fields.

SALUTE

Get the fucking Nazi flags out of there.  Southern history and the Confederate flag have nothing to do with the Swastika.  As long as there is just one of those flags in the crowd, the  media will zoom in on that only and the true purpose of the march will be lost.

To Hell In A Handbasket's picture

The sad fact and the non-PC answer is, for many of the marchers, the 2 are indistinguishable. 

Xena fobe's picture

There are probably two nazi flags there and they are the only flags the MSM is showing.

Tiwin's picture

I totally agree. Swastika/naziism are charged subjects, with 70 years of Jewish media pummelling it into your brain how bad it is.

Plenty of Southerners died fighting Germany in two seperate Jew Fueled wars, and many more survived the Jewish wars and came home to fly a dixie flag, never once associating it with keeping the darkies down or jerking off to pictures of Adolph Hitler.

Why would any movement adopt the loser of a war 75 years ago as its mascot? Unless......the persons flaunting the  obscene symbolism are doing it to discredit the rest!

White power? naaahhhhh, but- whites have a right to exist too, and I believe with the goings on in Europe and to some degree here that 'diversity' is indeed code for white genocide.I am sure in the snowflake factories any white male would agree-if only he were asked in private.

Dixie flag? Arrgh . To ya'all in the north or out west, The same folks that have shoved six million Anne Franks and Oskar Schindlers down your throat have ALWAYS hated the south. From the stereotypical southern sheriff "you in a heap o trouble boy" thru the modern day meth addled racist sterotype....the Dixie flag is NOT a symbol of hate.

Just because your Jewish masters tell you it is dont make it so.

Plenty of dixie flags fly round these woods, and in fifteen years of living in arguably the most redneck part of the country I have only heard the word nigger ONCE in casual conversation.

Contrast that with living in your precious New York or L.A. or Omaha.

The dixie flag , to my neighbors , more than anything else means simply, leave me the fuck alone.
