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.

A fuck paid to bring a nazi flag so that the MSM has something new and incendiary to attract the eyes of the ADD'd zombies to their broadcasts.

 Where is Vicky? I wonder how many people are being paid to attend? Cops,protesters? KKK?

  I would bring all my own water/cookies. Not that I would go to a protest for anything other than real justice.

The most important thing to watch for is not that

left and right are fighting, but which side the police

move to support.  That will determine our future.

Most of you know who that will be.

Maybe they should consider buying the flags from diifferent vendors. Might tone down the Agency look to it. At least it saves the effort of any further research.

UPDATE 

Someone just drove a car through a pack of counter-protestors.

The white people were all chattig sipping coffee peacefullyt when attacked by Far left fascists it looks like.

 

That's pretty much what we have all seen even during the elections---soros paid antifa and extremists beating up innocent people.

Them damn Rooskies just won't quit. They stole the election and now they're trying to incite a riot. Not that the Left of course would need any excuse.

You know the Deep State couldn't beat a bunch of rubber tire sandal pajama wearing peasants 50 years ago. Do you really think they can control all of flyover country?

Isn't it "funny":  Leftists walk around with Communist flags (the most murderous ideology in history), sport AK-47's, cover their faces, burn cars and buildings, assault people with all kinds of vile shit, talk about murdering, kidnnapping, and assassinating people ... and it's "Just kids havin' fun!" or "Legitimate protesting!" according to the MSM ... someone comes out and says that White people should be able to protest and march and it's HORRIBLE BEYOND WORDS.

Just more and more evidence that Liberalism is a profound and incurable mental disease - and a cancer on this world.

Try wearing a "White and Proud" shirt publicly.  Because being proud of who you are isn't allowed for one group of people but perfectly fine for all others. F'em all.

One man can disable a small city with a chainsaw and an ATV. Dummies in the USA dont bury powerlines 

PitBullsRule's picture

Have you ever tried to cut through a telephone pole with a chainsaw?  It takes 10-15 minutes, and then when the pole falls over it whips high powered lines all over the place.  Then the police man shows up and say's, "Good afternoon son!  Whacha up to?"

Carbide tipped chains get  through creosote like butter

PitBullsRule's picture

Yes but you're going to be standing under it when those 580 Volt lines come down and whip all over the place.  If you climb up and cut those live wires, you're likely to get barbequed.  If you get anywhere near the ground wire running down the side of that thing, your flesh will evaporate from your arms leaving only the bones.

There have been cases of suicide where people short out those lines, and all they find is the bones and some stains below.  There's a LOT of power in those babies!  Think of all the air conditioners they run.

A big line came down near here and burned holes through a 5 inch cement sidewalk. I didn't know concrete could burn, but it did. Where the line lay on asphalt paving, the roadway bubbled like a volcano cone. A 3/8" thick copper connected melted up on the pole and splattered molten copper all over the sidewalk. There was a burn trail in the sidewalk 50 yards long. Mighty hot stuff.

robertocarlos's picture

I know. First step should be to climb the pole and cut the wires. Then you chop the pole down. You should also bring a sharp chainsaw.

TheAnswerIs42's picture

No, first step is to throw a bicycle chain over the wires which shorts them out.

If still necessary, then you cut the poles down.

rejected's picture

Nope! Doesn't happen like that. Living in a hurricane zone I have seen poles broke in two. They usually just hang there or maybe tilt 45 degrees,,, unless 2 or more are broke. 

As for the police,,, Assuming a well planned operation by reasonably intelligent people- that seem really scarce these days- the cops would be all bogged down with several diversions.

Though not impossible , very difficult to do these days as FBI informants would be the first 50 volunteers in any anti government group.

7-8 years ago I was screaming to people that I know well that this was going to happen. 

Soon enough I needed to shut up because folks looked at me like I was a lunatic. 

In fact, back then the ONLY people that could see what I foresaw were right here in Fight Club. 

In fact, to mention here was to almost be banal. I mean, people would respond like you were just stating the obvious. 

It's amazing how asleep the general public is. 

So let me restate the obvious again: There is going to be another civil wat in this nation. Right now you are seeing its birthing pains. Nothing more.

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.

The battle has already been won by rewriting the history as the part of the sentence in bold shows.  Slavery was not the primary issue, even Lincoln acknowledged that, control of government education has rewritten that part.

Though a hundred years of re-education mainstream Whitey has been indoctrinated to self loathing. Although extremely bright, they are easily deluded. This can be observed worldwide. From appearances, Caucasians have less then 2-3 generations left.  Like other branches of extinct humanoids they will cease to exist.

State of Emergency? 

I was under the impression that at the very least; confirmed numerous fatalities ,threats to infrastructure or national security

would be an absolute requisite before making that kind of call...

I guess the governor's feelings were really badly hurt eh?

 

Rebelrebel7's picture

Exactly! The governor of Louisiana didn't even declare a state of emergency and.call in the national guard during Katrina. I am highly suspicious of the motives of the driver, and whether or not the driver was a government operative.

Thank God that I  am not in that state! As far as the protesters, I am equally suspicious of them on both sides! 

Why anyone would protest a removal of a statue, rather than the laws violating the Bill of Rights ,  and the governments war on liberty and war on the world is ridiculous from my point of view!

libertyanyday's picture

actually protesting is a complete waste of time...........its always the losers who partake.

robertocarlos's picture

Hit and run. I still hate transgender fag snowflakes but I don't approve of this action.

El Vaquero's picture

At this point, the people sporting white nationalist/national socialist symbols, plus this hit and run are going to play hard on the left's confirmation bias, and they're going to double down.  That is going to drive more people further to the right.  I think we've entered a self reinforcing feedback loop of ideological battle lines being drawn.  

PitBullsRule's picture

These modern riots are REALLY boring!  A bunch of chubby girls with cell phone cameras, a fender bender, and lots of cops standing around looking at their watches.  What ever happened to "Burn Baby Burn!"?  Where's the "Rebel Yell"?  

Thats it, I have to go do yard work.  This is taking too long.

CheapBastard's picture

This is similar to the state of emergency Jerry Brown declared in Cali when his left wing fascists were beating innocent people up in the streets and burning down buildings..

 

 

..oh wait a second...

chosen's picture

Seems like the black car rammed directly into the back of a parked white car.  If the driver was trying to kill or hurt protestors, that makes no sense.  He would have aimed at the people, not at a parked car.   He did do a good job of backing out real fast.

White Americans seeing black Americans as enemies, and vice versa.  

The Joo plan of ruining America (black or white) has succeeded.
