    George Soros buses in Anti-fa who start violence and get legal planned rally with a permit shut down. Then they March down a one way street against traffic with no permit so the street isn’t closed. They start beating on some guy’s car calling him a Nazi, going to pull him out of his car and beet him up 1000 to one. Guy responds by driving through crowd to try to get out. OMG NAZI TERRORIST ATTACK INSPIRED BY DRUMF.

    Sen Rubio and Sen Scott (S.C.) calling on Trump to make a more forceful statement against the White Nationalists.

    Something really stinks in S.C. (Thanks Nikki Haley for kicking off this whole sh*tstorm to begin with a few years back when you trashed the Confed. flag, it was all downhill from there with Confed. Monuments.)

    And Rubio well…..we all know what to expect from him.

      Did every Democrat have to go out and disavow violence when Scalise got shot?

      I must have missed reporters shouting questions to Schumer, Pelosi, Obama, HRC etc. immediately. Was HRC supposed to make an immediate comment?

      Here we go. The rules have been written. The guy who opened fire on congressional Republicans was a nut who no one has bothered to follow up on. But we’re going to be talking about the nut who ran down the protesters for the next decade because it can be used to discredit Trump supporters.

          The KKK was formed by radical Democrats. In classic Alinsky-style projection, Democrats later mischaracterized this group as Alt-Right. Who abolished slavery? That would be President Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, who paid the ultimate price after he freed black slaves. The fake news never ends.

          Demonrat Hellary is enthralled with Alinsky, basing her college thesis on his book “Rules for Radicals,” which he dedicated to Lucifer.

After the sham of a caucus I participated in, watching the Colorado delegation make fools of themselves at the convention then Gardner calling Trump a buffoon last year was the last straw for me, I let him know at the time too, in no uncertain terms.

        Slowly but surely, people will see what is going on, on a level which makes sense to them…and nowhere except in the atrophied minds of these puppets is this level of unprovoked violence acceptable.

It seemed like they were setting up for an event but reporting as if it was already happening. Strange.

      AltRight started out as a bunch of young kids on the internet who were creative Trump supporters.

      But then Ms.Hillary took Pepe and slammed him as a Racist (I know, I know). And of course the whole Dem Media and all the RINOs jumped on board and suddenly AltRight is like a swear word and a really really bad thing.

      Then Hannity re-enforced it all by labeling Antifa, etc. as AltLeft (people who really *are* Bad). So if AltLeft is bad, then AltRight must be too.

      That’s my understanding of how it all evolved. Now we’re stuck with this “new meaning” cuz there was no push back originally from FOX and RINOs.

      It now means the Racist Right. Period.

      I just found an article on the Toledo Blaze. It mentions Mr Fields mother.

      Multiple media outlets are reporting the car is registered to 20-year-old James Alex Fields of Maumee, based on vehicle registration records. Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail Superintendent Martin Kumer told The Post that a man with the same name and age was booked Saturday on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding, failure to stop for an accident involving a death, and hit and run.

      Samantha Bloom, Mr. Fields’ mother, told a Blade reporter her son texted her Friday to say he had dropped his cat off at her Monclova Township apartment so he could go to an “alt-right” rally in Virginia.

      “I told him to be careful,” Ms. Bloom said. “[And] if they’re going to rally to make sure he’s doing it peacefully.”

      It didn’t appear that happened, she said tearfully.

      She had returned from dinner Saturday evening unaware that her son was involved and had not yet been contacted by authorities.

      He had told her about the rally last week, but didn’t offer details about its extremist nature.

      “I thought it had something to do with Trump,” she said.

      She said he had moved out of her apartment “five or six months ago” to his own Maumee apartment, but she declined to give the address. Ms. Bloom said they moved to northwest Ohio from Florence, Kentucky, about a year ago for her job.

      Along the quiet street where Mr. Fields’ mother lives, neighbors living in the colorful one-story, conjoined units said they didn’t know much about the 20-year-old.

      Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler had called for what he termed a “pro-white” rally in Charlottesville. White nationalists and their opponents promoted the event for weeks.

      Oren Segal, who directs the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, said multiple white power groups gathered in Charlottesville, including members of neo-Nazi organizations, racist skinhead groups and Ku Klux Klan factions.

      The white nationalist organizations Vanguard America and Identity Evropa; the Southern nationalist League of the South; the National Socialist Movement; the Traditionalist Workers Party; and the Fraternal Order of Alt Knights also were on hand, he said, along with several groups with a smaller presence.

      Many others were just locals caught in the fray.

      On the other side, anti-fascist demonstrators also gathered in Charlottesville, but they generally aren’t organized like white nationalist factions, said Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

      Cliff Erickson leaned against a fence and took in the scene. He said he thinks removing the statue amounts to erasing history and said the “counter-protesters are crazier than the alt-right.”

      “Both sides are hoping for a confrontation,” he said.

      ————————————-
      Charlottesville, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is a liberal-leaning city that’s home to the flagship University of Virginia and Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson.

      The statue’s removal is part of a broader city effort to change the way Charlottesville’s history of race is told in public spaces. The city has also renamed Lee Park, where the statue stands, and Jackson Park, named for Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. They’re now called Emancipation Park and Justice Park, respectively.

      For now, the Lee statue remains. A group called the Monument Fund filed a lawsuit arguing that removing the statue would violate a state law governing war memorials. A judge has agreed to temporarily block the city from removing the statue for six months.

        I find it frustrating that too few people understand what is happening. Everyone seems to be using the same lame talking points.

        Thank you for this post. I think there is a lot at play, including the basic rights of many white folks, and we should resist the temptation to buy the globalist/leftist narrative.

          I applaud Carol Swain for speaking up and she makes some VERY good points that we are all aware of.

          But these people are going about their “cause” in such an ass backwards way that they will NEVER get sympathy from even those who may agree with them on many/most/ALL things.

          So they need to re-think WTF they are doing. Cuz this is designed to Backfire.

          They need to get a clue. Use Lefty tactics and it’s a Big Fail.

          They are united with the Identitarian Movement in Europe. Which has failed over there for the exact same reasons.

          You wonder why the Swedes, even the “sane” ones who are terrified of what’s happening there, will not vote for people who will help them? It’s Movements like this. Where everyones in Lockstep. Heck, they carry the same flags, shout in unison and in general scare the shit out of everyone who witnesses it.

          Noone wants to see bunch of Torch Bearers marching thru their town shouting slogans. It’s intimidating. and if they had half a brain they’d know that.

        Here’s a good laugh break. Carol Swain re-tweeted something from this person. “Je Suis….Sick of this Shit”, “ExDemocrat”. Too funny!

      Carol Swain is quite a respected historian. She was featured in Dinesh D’Souza’s
      Ast film about Hillary Clinton.

    A recently posted Stefan Molyneux YouTube video features a news woman (Faith Goldy) who was covering the “rally”. Ms. Goldy said that the gathering was peaceful until the Antifa Fascists and BLM started throwing rocks and spraying mace. She claims that after the Antifa and BLM starting attacking the protesters, the cops and riot police disappeared….the riot began. Interesting.

      We have watched this same script play out in city after city. I am not sure why conservatives – or any sentient being for that matter – is surprised at the formula. We are being had in the worst type of way.

        Well, if there’s to be a DOJ investigation, that looks to be some good grist to be investigated.

        Let’s see if DOJ and FBI can get to the bottom of the real story:
        – – lefty brownshirts,
        – – lefty Mayor giving lefty Police Chief a lefty stand-down order,
        – – lefty Mayor or Governor prior knowledge of lefty groups planning disruption and violence,
        – – yada yada yada …

          … and I’ll add that it will be a crucible-level test of Sessions’ DOJ:

          Sure, send car-plow guy away for a long time if he’s got no plausible “I was scared and surrounded” defense.

          But if the facts pan out on the “police stand-down order” or “police willingly disappeared instead of separating factions” …

          … and if DOJ doesn’t uncover it and place appropriate blame and fault for violence on the Lefty BLM and Antifa groups that were involved …

          … then we’ll know that there is no justice or reckoning coming.

    Why history is important:

    From the Toledo Blaze article:
    The statue’s removal is part of a broader city effort to change the way Charlottesville’s history of race is told in public spaces. The city has also renamed Lee Park, where the statue stands, and Jackson Park, named for Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. They’re now called Emancipation Park and Justice Park, respectively.

      Now *that* I did not know. (That Lee was anti-slavery).

      So when they tear these Lee statues down, it means they are Slavery supporters, right?

        They are re-teaching history to fit their narrative.
        ” part of a broader city effort to change the way Charlottesville’s history of race is told in public spaces. ”

        Lee came from a high society family from VA & they owned slaves but Lee did not like the fact that the war was centered on slavery issue.

        At the beginning of Lee’s military career VA was in the Union & Lee was in the US Army.
        Before the Civil War, Lee was a hero for his part in the Mexican War. He resigned from the military & went back home to VA.

        Lee was committed to the state of Virginia & when VA decided to secede, it pretty much forced Lee to fight in the Confederacy in order to fight for the state he loved. It’s a shame to see how the state of VA is treating him.
