    Crowd At White Nationalist Rally In Va. Killing 1, Injuring 19

    A vehicle drives into a group of protesters demonstrating against a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017. The nationalists were holding the rally to protest plans by the city of Charlottesville to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. There were several hundred protesters marching in a long line when the car drove into a group of them. /The Daily Progress via AP)

    OAN Newsroom

    A car slams into a group of people at a white nationalist rally in Virginia, killing at least one person and injuring 19 others.

    That’s according to officials at the nearby University of Virginia hospital.

    Police say the driver of the car is now in custody.

    One witness described the moments immediately after the vehicle attack.

    “Big silver mustang, came through probably 35 miles per hour, something like that. It was flinging people out of the way. There was just like a ton of bodies all on the ground all over the side and I just tried to pull somebody out of the road because I didn’t know if they were going to come back.”

    Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency in response to the rally.

    President Trump sounded off about the incident… saying everyone must be united and condemn all that hate stands for.

    He added there is no place for this kind of violence in America.

    The so called “Unite the Right” event was held in Charlottesville’s Emancipation Park Saturday with several opposing political groups reportedly in attendance.

    So this was a whites only protest or is that the News media spinning it? To generate hate for any group who doesn't want to see our actual historic monuments sacrificed on the alter of Political correctness?

    Who knows really except those there. The reports are that way but who knows what we can believe. I do know this, the left believes anyone else expressing their first amendment rights do not deserve the right to be heard like they do. Every time there is a rally of some sort they show up to overshadow them. I'm not saying I agree with the origins of this rally but they have their rights.

    I read that two are dead and the driver was a left winger, and since the mainstream media hasn't called him out as a member of the KKK etc I am inclined to believe it.
    Also said get the ACLU sued to get the permit reinstated and the police allowed the those who were protesting attack the demonstrators as they were being told to evacuate and they fought back, eventually the police involved.
    The footage I watched earlier seemed to be designed (or perhaps just by conicidence) to make it hard to tell who was on what side and who was doing what to whom.

    i realized today that i dont care about either side of this conflict. anyone who shows up there is likely on the extreme side of the right or the left meaning they're probably unreasonable ideologues. i have no time for that nonsense.

    I can't support idiots carrying Nazi flags and talking White Supremacy. I did see coverage on ABC and NBC and it was not clear who did it so it looks like the typical MSM BS. Keep f'ing with Civil War statues and this is going to happen. The asshats blamed Trump for taking 2-3 hours to release a statement but had he done that immediately they'd have jumped on him for rushing to judgement. You know like when o'asshole ran his mouth immediately after every racial BS he could use to cause division and stir racial tensions, oh wait they never did say anything did they? :rolleyes:

    It may be even worse than that.
    Folks on both sides may not be at the very extreme but their mere presence is assumed by the other side to be the most extreme and therefore elicit the harshest possible response.
    Personally I cannot fathom how either side got convinced that the other side represents some imminent existential threat.

    NKorea on the other hand does present an existential threat to all of us, no matter how probable or improbable that threat is it is nonetheless genuine and specific.

    very true. people need to get jobs or hobbies or families or something to occupy their time so they dont have time to worry about bullshit like this.

    All I want to know is where were the counter protesters when Ferguson was burning, when Baltimore was being looted, when Berkley was being turned upside down?
    All I'm seeing lately is one group in America is being allowed free reign to march bitch stomp and snort and the rest are being assaulted when they do it.....look at the Trump rallies for Christs sake.....I don't recall one disturbance at a Bernie or Hilary rally....

    The Polish subtitles were pretty spot on, context-wise.

    Why in Polish?

    You cant call yourselves any better than ISIS if you claim to be apart of the modern age and have protest and rallies based on your skin color.

    Just my thoughts

    One thing I know for sure is that no color be it white black brown yellow blue or purple ever lies to me stole from me tried to kill me or otherwise wronged me. Now people of all shades have greatly disappointed me over the years.
    I guess what i m trying to say is that until someone wrongs me I give them respect after that I hold them not a color responsible......
