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.

Sessions Blocks Access to Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Emails

Judge Andrew Napolitano reveals the State Department and Department of Justice are blocking access to the emails.

historian40's picture

Heh, the State Dept blocking emails.  I wonder why, could it be because that Dept has been ran by the Council on Foreign Relations for almost 100 years.  Hillary admitted she went to them to be told how to think and what she should be doing.  She's still one of their agents, just like every last Sec. of State before her going back decades.  They want everyone to focus on Hillary and her emails, but not dig enough to realize she was just doing what her predecessors have been doing, taking orders from a foreign enemy cabal and giving them sensitive information.

They don't stop working for the enemy CFR when they leave "public office" either.  In example, Mad Madeliene Albright was recently in Ukraine when the CFR-US State Dept overthrew that government and turned Ukraine into a failed State.

People have the right to defend those statues with violence if necessary.  It's a travesty that the KKK and Nazis are there to skew the message. 

The famous Ft McHenry flag from the war of 1812, which sits in the Smithsonian was the first flag flown as they were under siege by 100 ships' cannons.  It was a cold weather flag.  It was actually the main target of the bombardment.  It was held up all through the night by the CITZENS (not just military there) who died one after another.  Women and children were even included in the massive piles of bodies that kept the flag flying to continuous banker British bombardment.  In the morning the hoisted a new and epic giant flag just to piss the fuckers off.  They continued to take the bombardment and the flag pole was at many times held by stacks of bodies surrounding it.  The guy who wrote the star spangled banner got the lyrics from being present on a British prisoner of war ship as the battle broke out (was negotiating) and was calling down to the men below periodically informing them that "the flag still waved".

Southerners have every right to fight for their monuments that represent their history and historical figures.  The Bolshevik banking occupiers need to keep their greedy evil fingers off of our heritage.  Next they will come for the Jefferson statues.

noun noun: swastika; plural noun: swastikas
  1. an ancient symbol in the form of an equal-armed cross with each arm continued at a right angle, used (in clockwise form) as the emblem of the German Nazi party.
Origin late 19th century: from Sanskrit svastika, from svasti ‘well-being’, from su ‘good’ + asti ‘being’. Translate swastika to

It is the ancient and sacred symbol of all Eurasians.Your comment is pure Bigotry.

It symbolizes the wheel of life, unlike the Monotheistic cross of Death.

 

Ms No's picture

Are you claiming that these "Nazi" members here intend on flying the ancient svastika to symbolize well being?  Obviously that has nothing to do with what is going on here.  They are not flying your swastika they are flying theirs.  Your comment is out of context and thus, irrelevant.  Nobody has a problem with the ancient symbol and we all aware that it has been debased, just like the American flag and everything else.  That isn't the issue here.

 

Is-Be's picture

Your comment was loaded with odorous baggage. No, not all folks know about the true meaning of our symbol, being well indoctrinated monotheists.

IMO,,, The entire protest is to promote the lefts narrative that Whites are racists.

Concept mostly aimed at other whites to further their self hate.  

Appears to work very well.

Says the guy who obviously has NO idea what the Civil War / War of Northern Aggression was about ... which makes him oh-so pedestrian ... and consequently SO sure of his opinion.  But on the bright side, he's running his Revisionist History Program flawlessly!

Says the guy who cannot admit the obvious fact that the cowardly bastards didn't want to give up their free labor.  Lazy fuckers just wanted own own others and have the audacity to call their slaves lazy.  This is simple.

The north didn't free its slaves. It freed the southern slaves as a form of economic warfare.  Then after they won, they made eveybody slaves.  Anybody who isn't a politician or banker that is.

No need to sugar-coat it.  It is the jews that are destroying our heritage/culture utilizing their colored savages as their foot-soldiers.

Perspective from the left coast here.  Blacks are Americans so they should join the alt right. 

We need all loyal Americans who oppose globalization to get on board.  Don't let them divide and conquer us. 

Couldn't the statue issue be fought in court? 

idontcare's picture

The same courts which keep dismissing cases before it trying to bring down the heads of our major banks for "failure to state a claim upon which a remedy can be granted" (or some such)?   Federal judges are appointed as are Virginia judges.  There is no justice when you have politically appointed judges.

ReturnOfDaMac's picture

You are of course correct Xena. But surely you know THAT is not what WHITE NATIONALISTS are calling for.  You have too many "exceptional" folks who think the country should only belong to those of us of a certain shade.  We will never have unity in this country, never.  Never had it before and we will certainly never have it in the future. The best solution is go the way of the soviets, they showed the way, split up into like minded nation-states and then we can have peace.  Those who want to live in a whites only state can go to their Mississippi paradise. Those who want to have, say, a larger view, can go to those states.  Everybody can be exceptional then!

These maggots in the Media associate Nationalism w/ evil??

 

Who are these evil Marxist maggots running our Media conglomerates? Where did these degenerate Aliens come from?

 

Build that Fucking Wall!!!

A wall won't stop the enemies responsible for eating away the US from within.  The Jews are contrary to all men(1 Thess 2:14-16), the permanent revolutionaries that move to and fro bringing chaos to their victims.  Their own house was left desolate in perpetuity, and wherever they set up "home", that nation always follows a pattern of declline, decay, and desolation.

Here we go with the Jews again. Please historian, honest to god I'm seraious, I really want to know this, why do you have an issue with Jews?

Shirley, gimme a break, don't give me a half-assed answer like google it.  Give me a link or some way to direct my inquiry.  I seriously want to understand, why the Jew hatred?  This has seriously puzzled me for decades.

Nationalism is love of one's government.  Patriotism is love of one's people and country.  Most aware Patriots are not Nationalists.

The military being called in for "law enforcement".  "Far right" dehumanizing labels.  Destroying the heritage of those who fought to save the Republic against the revolutionaries and their new Federal Union.  The US regime and their sycophants will reap it one day.

Reality TV just keeps getting more and more entertaining!

 

PS  Why turn on one another?  Why not show up with all that manpower to the estates of our politicians and this country's CEOs and bankers?   The confused transgenders and the neo-nazis did not take our rights away - the banking cabal and its servants in government and big business did.   Why not beat the crap out of the correct culprits?  

PPS  When did "nationalism" become a dirty word?  Many of us were sworn to uphold & defend the Constitution.   That hasn't changed, has it?

Damn you!  Stop it, just stop making sense.  We are emotional, exceptional, tribal neanderthals and we will have no part of that.

Soros and the DNC did not see this coming either. He just declared "Red Alert" and is bussing in hundreds of lefty fascist from California and Portland to start beating up people.

 

The far Left violence never stops it seems; where ever they go violence erupts.

The president of UV Sullivan made a yuuuuuge mistake imo by bashing peaceful marchers last night instead of simply saying she does not agree with them but they have the right to march peacefully, like they were doing. It's made worse by her NEVER criticizing the left wing and DNC violence.

So the liberals want to remove the statue, and the confederate flag? I guess to remove the memory and maybe the lessons from the slavery and the bad old days - good! Best to forget those unpleasant times - like they never happened.

historian40's picture

They dont' want you to realize the "civil war" was actually a revolution.  The Constitution was breached under the Lincoln regime and has never been followed since.  The Republic of voluntary membership by sovereign States was dissolved and replaced by a Federal Union by force, with the Federal regime seizing sovereignty and subjugating the people and States.
