    I'll be curious to find out how the violence started. It's easy to see a bunch of gun-toting self-described militia as being the catalyst for it, but these days you can't really tell. Liberals are just as likely to throw punches as conservatives are.

    Either way, I saw the guy who organized this and heard what he had to say on CNN this morning. I concede that some of his ideas/complaints aren't unreasonable in theory, thought it's hard to ignore the fact that such ideas/complaints are more-often-than-not accompanied (in practice) by white nationalism.
    Anyone who actually believes in the existence of sin will avoid lying about others and misrepresenting them.

      Just reading about that. It started out as a white nationalist protest against the removal of a confederate statue, Robert E. Lee. The article I read was in the NYT which is behind a paywall and you can't copy paste quotes from it. They let you have six 'free' reads per month, so if you haven't used yours up here's the link: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/12/u...pgtype=article

      The governor called a state of emergency. People in KKK robes and chanting Nazi era slogans are facing off with BLM, police are in riot gear and pronouncing it an unlawful gathering because people are getting beat up badly.

      No, these protesters are not a group of 'traditionalists' trying to protect a historical artifact from being removed. They are spoiling for a fight. I just hope it stays at that level, as much as you hear the white nationalists fantasizing about a civil war. People are crazy. Oh, and so far? Not a word from Trump.

        Trump finally sent out a tweet:

        We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!

          Here's that article for those who are paywalled:

          The turmoil began with a march Friday night and escalated Saturday morning as hundreds of white nationalists gathered. Waving Confederate flags, chanting Nazi-era slogans, wearing helmets and carrying shields, they converged on a statue of Robert E. Lee in the city’s Emancipation Park and began chanting phrases like “You will not replace us,” and “Jew will not replace us.”

          Hundreds of counterprotesters quickly surrounded the crowd, chanting and carrying their own signs.

          By 11 a.m., the scene had exploded into taunting, shoving and outright brawling. Barricades encircling the park and separating the two sides began to come down, and police temporarily retreated. People were seen clubbing one another in the streets, and pepper spray filled the air.

          Police cleared the area before noon, and the Virginia National Guard arrived as officers began arresting some who remained for unlawful assembly. But fears lingered that the altercation would start again nearby, even as politicians, including Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, a Republican, condemned the violence.

          Emergency medical personnel treated eight people, the Charlottesville Police Department said. It was not immediately clear how severely they were hurt. Several area hospitals did not return telephone calls seeking information.

          The fight was the latest in a series of tense dramas unfolding across the United States over plans to remove statues and other historic markers of the Confederacy. The battles have been intensified by the election of President Trump, who enjoys fervent support from white nationalists.

          The president commented on the violence Saturday afternoon, tweeting, “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”

          The protest, billed as a “Unite the Right” rally, was the culmination of a year and a half of debate in Charlottesville over the fate of the Lee statue. A movement to remove it began when an African-American high school student here started a petition. The City Council voted 3 to 2 in April to sell it, but a judge issued an injunction temporarily stopping the move.

          The city had been bracing for a sea of alt-right demonstrators, and on Friday night, hundreds of them, carrying lit torches, marched on the picturesque grounds of the University of Virginia, founded in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson. The group included prominent white nationalist figures like Richard Spencer and David Duke, a former imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

          “We’re going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump” to “take our country back,” Mr. Duke told reporters Saturday. Many of the white nationalist protesters carried campaign signs for Mr. Trump.

          University officials said one person was arrested and charged Friday night with assault and disorderly conduct, and several others were injured. Among those hurt was a university police officer injured while making the arrest, the school said in a statement.

          Theresa A. Sullivan, the president of the university, strongly condemned the Friday demonstration in a statement, calling it “disturbing and unacceptable.”

          Still, officials allowed the Saturday protest to go on — until the injuries began piling up.

          The city of Charlottesville declared a state of emergency at around 11 a.m., citing an “imminent threat of civil disturbance, unrest, potential injury to persons, and destruction of public and personal property.”

          Governor McAuliffe followed with his own declaration an hour later.

          “It is now clear that public safety cannot be safeguarded without additional powers, and that the mostly-out-of-state protesters have come to Virginia to endanger our citizens and property,” Governor McAuliffe said in a statement. “I am disgusted by the hatred, bigotry and violence these protesters have brought to our state over the past 24 hours.”

          The Republican candidate for governor in Virginia, Ed Gillespie, issued his own statement denouncing the protests as “vile hate” that has “no place in our Commonwealth.”

          Mr. Ryan agreed. “The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant,” he said on Twitter. “Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry.”
          A Forum Trump Follower:

          "Maybe the Jews invented the Nazi's. Some have suggested that. It's not so farfetched."

          "Didn't the Mossad have something to do with 911?"

          "If they don't want to get run down, maybe they should stay out of the street."

              It's not all his fault, but he certainly did contribute to it with his constant race baiting.

                        He certainly did nothing to bring our country together, rather did a lot you further divide us, starting with throwing his own white grandma under the bus in his first campaign...

                        sad, really. As our first black president, he had every opportunity to help mend our racial divide... too bad he blew it.

                            Many of us would have welcomed a black president, if he loved our country and its values and philosophy.

                            Unfortunately, the first black president turned out to be an anti-American, anti-liberty, piece of crap. Fair or not, that will end up influencing people's opinions of the next black candidate.

                              The usual cretinous attempt to change the subject from the dolt and the cretins.

                              Why is it that sop few Trump supporters can ever discuss Trump?

                              What is it about a mental process that has to introduce Obama's grandmother into a discussion of white supremacists?

                              I think it's moral cowardice.
