State Of Emergency In VA As Nazis Riot - Car Plows Into Crowd (UPDATED)

A tense morning in Charlottesville, VA was followed by street clashes between Nazi marchers and counter demonstrators, causing Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe to declare a state of emergency. Police, whose presence at the beginning of the so-called "Unite The Right" march was negligible, finally declared the white supremacists rally at Emancipation Park (formerly Lee Park) an unlawful assembly. The park is the site of a statue of Confederate traitor Robert E. Lee, which is scheduled to be removed by the city of Charlottesville, home to the University of Virginia.

Confederate and Nazi flags festooned the march, provoking hundreds of counter protestors, some of which were the "Antifa" or anti-Fascist organizations. There were reports of several serious injuries as the white supremacists wielded clubs, poles and pepper spray against the counter demonstrators. Among the Nazi leaders of the march were Richard Spencer, Jason Kessler and the KKK's David Duke.

UPDATE:  Speaking of Duke --

UPDATE II:  A car has plowed into a crowd of anti-fascist demonstrators; story and more pictures here.

UPDATE III:  Now, it's murder --

UPDATE IV:  Not surprisingly, Rump refused to specifically name or condemn the Nazi/ white supremacist/ alt- righters, blaming "many sides" for the violence.

Using a car or truck to ram into a crowd is an established tactic of Islamotard terrorists in Britain and France. Evidently the American Taliban are learning from their ideological cousins.

Trump's "many sides" statement shows how this fake tough guy is a cowardly equivocator when it really counts.

There's no help for Trump. He answers to Bannon and his COS is useless. I'm so fucking sick of this shit. Call it what it is, you little chickenshit bitch: TERRORISM BY WHITE NATIONALISTS.

Diva -- When he avoids calling out the white supremacist /Nazi trash, he further identifies himself with their vile movement. He is aware of what he's doing, and not doing.
