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.

True and real facts that the US government hides

80% of blacks in the US don't work and don't want to work

80% of the US prison population is black

80% of the crime in the US is caused by blacks

80% of the blacks in the US did not finish High School

80 % of the blacks in the US don't know who their daddy is

It seems odd that the "news" never reports on the real numbers or the reasons that voluntary segregation takes place:

1. We took our child out of junior high when the busing from the inner city began. The black kids were almost always two to three years older (held back year after year) and Should Have Been in high school. My children were Frightened by these hard-core black kids with their threatening posturing. Was removing my children fair to my children? No.

2. There is the recent hullabaloo about the young woman whose father didn't want her to be with a black young man; she called her father a racist. The father should have shown her the statistics of young women murdered and abused by their black "boyfriends" or the number of children these black young men have that they don't support; aka Welfree, once known as Welfare but now a financial plan for the illiterate and the non-white.

3. There is a singular statistic that sums it all up; numerous older (over 65) white women have been attacked and raped and murdered (as well as a recent asian woman) by young black men. There is ZERO number of young white men who have raped and murdered old black women. Kinda says it all.

You have the right to use your common sense; you have the Right of Association; you have the right to know the statistics and choose your life by them.

Waste of time,,, The daughter was already lost.

The government education system has been far, far, far more dangerous than anyone can/will ever imagine. Indoctrination 8-12 hours a day for 12-16 years.  Until the education system is attended to, it will just get worse.

The 'news' is owned by Jews , who want us to fight amonst ourselves and with Israels enemies. Pointing out the fact that Jews own every single major media is no more anti semitic than pointing out the equally true crime stats make you a racist hater.

now back to your Klan meeting you awful white supremacist

What's it say about our country when you have to wear a helmet to stand up for your side at a protest. I don't care which side it is. Your a pussy

God they even fight half ass. If you go to a protest because you believe your opinion is righteous. Stand your ground win or lose. This punch and run bullshit probably looks tough when posted on social media.

I just read the LEFT is adopting the Nazi swastika as their new symbol, turn it 90 degreese as if that will disguise their treachery.  George Soros is behind this.

Of course the KKK and subversive agents bearing Nazi crap show up to discredit the entire event and anything white.  How low is the IQ of Clan members when we have known since the Church Committee that half the organization was federal agents (meaning that the other half were useless idiots)?  It's too bad that we can't lock Black Lives Matter in with Clan and just lets all those dupes for globalism take each other out.  The Clan was created to discredit white anything and make it all about "lets kill niggers" in the eyes of the population.  That was never what the south was about and its all a lie, a Zionist lie.

If the banking oligarchs are taken down the south will likely rise again.  If they can't figure out who the real enemy is they will be squabbling with BLM in their serfdom.  Its all a matter of if people can become sophisticated enough to figure it out.

Why dont they just let them go at it and clean up the mess afterwards? Thats what we did in skool. Two guys got into a fight and we just let em go. Couple of days later they were the best of friends.

Its called "Blowing off Steam." You keep holding it back it's gonna blow like YallerStone.

 

jmack's picture

just more thesis - antithesis - synthesis.  

 

  you need two strong opponents to fight for a third all powerful federal government to lord over and protect all from chaos and provide stability.

 

   Thus you have the country running headlong into race wars that only a small minority on either side, want. All to the benefit of the federal overlords.

 

    The KKK should join with the black panthers and blm or whoever and cast off and contain the feds so that both groups can be as they are in their own domains,  but it just dont work that way, does it.

Wonder if the guy with the Nazi flag was one of those protesting removal of the Robert E Lee statue, or a bused in lefty provocateur.
Having attended TEA party and 2nd Amdt rallies, the guys with rifles would be the least of my concerns. Those guys are legal, and don't want to make trouble.

My betting is that Soros funded troublemakers and BLM activists, but I repeat myself, are the instigators of any violence, and the original marchers are just defending themselves.

Remember, the marchers are expressing a non-PC viewpoint, right or wrong, but the left wants to shut down such 'speech' with violence justified in pursuit of their 'noble' ends.

Bet that will be the last Virginia city that will attempt to take down Lee's statue! By the way, Charlottesville should be renamed Snowflake City. I'm a northern now living in Virginia, and I can assure you that it was not the country boys here who started this feud. They are, however, likely to finish it.

These folks are just a small virulent minority on the right. Our good Virginia leftist governor panics and does the correct Stalinist move by calling a state of emergency just before the rally is scheduled to start and fires up the National Guard. Why didn't he call up his felons?

What are we going to see when the real right wakes up mad because the deep state has tried to illegally impeach Trump and they realize that McConnell and Ryan have stopped the people's legislative agenda?

Far Right definition: any white man who does not subscribe to libtard diversity mantra, which stipulates full diversity can only be achieved by extermination of all white men.

While clearly there are assholes there, I agree with you. Antifags riot in Berkeley, it's right-wingers' fault. Antifags violently attack a legal protest and right-wingers retaliate, it's right-wingers' fault. Damned if you do, damned if you don't when you're white today. The Gov purposely blew this out of proportion by calling in the Guard for optics's sake, giving the MSM all the "scary" images they need to paint the right as dangerous and violent. Meanwhile the NYT and WaPo this week give glowing reports of admiration for Antifags.

"KKK and "armed militia" are all FEDS"

 

Nope, I know a bunch of them. The armed militia are not militia. They are armed Red Necks. The Militia never gets involved in such affairs.

Ms No's picture

Two of the Arizona guys who were present for the Oregon standoff where Finnicum was killed were agents that were "militia".  Somehow they managed to make it all the way back to Arizona when they were the ones calling for violence and happily alive, and not in prison.  They somehow evaded the Feds all the way from Oregon to Arizona.  ROFL  Before that, one of those tools was threatening a politician in the NE and made it all the way there and back (6,000 miles, with his cellphone), with the Feds supposedly looking for him the whole time.  When he wasn't doing that he was shooting Korans in the desert for the MSM while flying Confederate Flag.  Interestingly we had a "freeway shooter" at the same time. 

The only real revolts anymore that aren't hijacked are spontaneous. 

rejected's picture

The US militia was unconstitutionally eliminated / changed in the first decade of the 20th century.

So called militias today are just armed boys and girls playing GI Joe / Jane. It's a social thing.

I would be surprised if there weren't gov / law enforcement informers in every one of them.

Some of Tim McVeigh's best friends were federal informers.

Trump's New Brown Shirts grab the news cycle, as Fake Nukes

and Fake ICBMs fade, and Trump desperately tries to hide the

indictments for CAPITAL TREASON, in trying to defraud a US

national election, and in selling $112 BILLION in arms to ISIS-

headchopper sponsored by al-Saud Wahhabists behind 9/11!

Expect more staged New Brown Shirt events after Mueller

announces the arrests of Donald Jr and Paul Manafort, and

request for extradition of Jared Kushner, who has fled to Israel.

Expect KKK and Sovereigntists Militias, deluded into believing

Trump's arrest for treason(s) is an assault on White rights, lol.

Why don't Donald and Melania take cyanide pills in their bunker?

Then NBS can change-out their swastika to a $-sign, rampant on

field of gold 'T' patterned over purple satin. How's that sound?!

Trump's New Brown Shirts will be the gay version of the KKK, lol.

They should just let the Trumptards have their statue. Losers need monuments too.  My guess is that the Trumptard rioters wouldn't be happy even if the statue were left in place.
