Charlottesville: black and white conflict in America

0

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

And the solution that almost no one appears to want—why are people allergic to solutions that work?

My tech partner and producer, Theo Wesson, has made several notes on the latest episode of black-white conflict in America, Charlottesville:

“Classic two-pronged Maoist tactic…. (a) shock troops on the ground causing violence and then (b) a sophisticated and coordinated…propaganda push by the parallel rogue state complex of Media, Academia, Hollywood and sold-out politicians. Historically huge. The Police standing down as the [third] element.”

“The violence puts the [television news] viewer in an altered state to receive the propaganda.”

Black vs. white. Nazis vs. liberals. Antifa vs. Alt-Right. Cut the dividing line any way you want to, factor in covert funding by people like George Soros, and you have a formula for escalating conflict between various sectors of society. Thus, driving more chaos.

Present the “sides” in the conflict as somehow representing the entire population of America. That’s the key.

This op is as old as the hills.

As for solutions, let’s start with a revelation about government funding for inner-city programs in St, Petersburg, Florida. The Tampa Bay Times reports:

“…the Tampa Bay Times set out to assess the region’s progress since the turn of the century, analyzing two decades worth of data on income, housing, demographics and crime.”

“Though the city has helped steer hundreds of millions of dollars into the neighborhoods around Midtown since 1999, they remain stuck in poverty.”

“Adjusted for inflation, the average household’s income has gone down.”

“Property values in the neighborhoods have dropped. Only 43 percent of homes in Midtown and Childs Park are owner-occupied, a rate that’s steadily declined since it was 60 percent in 2002.”

“Today, almost half of the region’s renters spend the majority of their income keeping a roof over their heads — nearly twice as many as in 1999.”

“In 2002, the crime rate was four times higher in Midtown and Childs Park [inner-city neighborhoods] than in the rest of the city. In 2014, it was more than five times higher.”

And then, the capper: “From 1999 to 2015, St. Petersburg helped steer over $210 million in private and public investments toward trying to improve life in the Midtown area, city documents show.”

$210 million, and this is what they have to show for it.

You really have to design failure in order to make $210 million worthless.

The answer?

Realize, first of all, that people tend to reject solutions if they haven’t heard about them before.

One solution here would be a program I’ve written about before, and it could be enacted for a tiny fraction of the $210 million that has gone down the drain:

URBAN FARMS.

Across the country, many such operations are underway. They’re happening. Local people are growing and eating their own food. Some of this food is also sold for profit.

—There should be many, many urban farms in the St. Petersburg inner city. Plots of land where local residents grow and trade and eat their own fresh, clean, nutritious food. It is a revolutionary act.

Initiate 50 of these farms. The government provides initial funding. The residents themselves will expand their operations into profit-making ventures; they’ll sell the excess food.

I’m estimating that for less than $5 million, the whole program can be launched—as opposed to the hundreds of millions of dollars that have been poured down unaccountable “investment” rat holes.

The residents of inner-city St, Petersburg would have a real economic stake in their own survival and success, and they’d escalate the power of their demands for safe neighborhoods—safe from gangs and thugs and drugs.

Clean fresh food.

Improved level of health and strength.

Community involvement.

Increasing production.

Profits.

Of course, governments don’t tend to favor solutions that actually work.

Such solutions reduce citizen dependence on government.

If a certain president in the White House put this urban farm project into effect—not only in St. Petersburg, but in other inner cities across America—and if resistance developed, that president would have a powerful means of exposing the disruptive resistance as a conscious campaign to keep making these neighborhoods fail, IN ORDER TO PERPETUATE AN EXCUSE FOR RACIAL CONFLICT.

A clue: professional paid disruptors, and their duped allies, are hired to expand failure in inner cities and exclude workable solutions that benefit one and all.

Bottom line: there are always solutions that lift people up. Sidelining and canceling and distorting and misdirecting and betraying those solutions is the full-time job of operatives who have a hidden agenda. These operatives want failure. They want to use failure to blame some group(s) for the chronic problem—thus expanding unrest and anger and division.

MAINSTREAM NEWS WILL NEVER REPORT EXTENSIVELY ON LARGE AND WORKABLE SOLUTIONS.

Report: Hate Groups on Decline in US — Except Alt-Left Antifa Terrorists

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Very #FakeNews CNN published a series of charts on hate groups in the United States.

Hate crimes continue to be on the decline since the 1990s.

Hate crimes against blacks are less common today as 20 years ago.

The number of racially focused hate groups are also on the decline since 2003.

Anti-Semitic hate crimes continue to be the most commonly reported hate crime.

The list did not include far left hate groups.

Today there are more Alt-left antifa members than all other groups combined.

Antifa continues tremendous growth in members and violent acts.
The Atlantic reported:

For antifa, the result has been explosive growth. According to NYC Antifa, the group’s Twitter following nearly quadrupled in the first three weeks of January alone. (By summer, it exceeded 15,000.) Trump’s rise has also bred a new sympathy for antifa among some on the mainstream left. “Suddenly,” noted the antifa-aligned journal It’s Going Down, “anarchists and antifa, who have been demonized and sidelined by the wider Left have been hearing from liberals and Leftists, ‘you’ve been right all along.’ ” An article in The Nation argued that “to call Trumpism fascist” is to realize that it is “not well combated or contained by standard liberal appeals to reason.” The radical left, it said, offers “practical and serious responses in this political moment.”

The Big Performance Is Just About To Start

by Richard Sauder, Event Horizon Chronicle:

It’s all about to get ever so much more serious. 

The recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia are just the beginning, like the loud, discordant, raucous, warm up notes that the musicians in a symphony orchestra play just before the actual performance commences.

It is obvious to me, and I suspect to a large number of others, that the entire event in Charlottesville was staged, albeit that a woman was killed and many others wounded. To begin with, Charlottesville is an alphabet soup agency town, and has been for many years. It is likely that both sides in the confrontation, protesters and counter-protesters alike, were being played and/or paid by the same unseen hand(s) with ties to one or more “intelligence” agencies.  It was all a big show, a deadly theatrical production, intended as mere prelude, as a stage-setting preview of coming attractions. 

The increasingly violent chaos in the USSA and elsewhere around the world is being well orchestrated by very dark agendas and actors, which feed off of strife, violence, confusion, fear, hatred, destruction, chaos, mayhem and death. 

The intent is to subject humanity to suffering, death, destruction, economic exploitation, degrading subjugation of all kinds, humiliation, abasement, increasingly more stringent mind and social control — and even outright elimination. 

Humanity is under attack, on multiple fronts simultaneously. There is a war underway, and it is not conventional. The battlefield is not conventional. The tactics are not conventional. More than anything, it is a war against consciousness itself. Those who are unconscious or heavily propagandized, who are running on reflexive, reactionary auto-pilot, are going to take a very heavy hit, like running headlong, forehead first, into a big, rapidly whirling, sawmill buzz saw — you know, the kind that slices up large tree trunks into boards and planks. What is coming is intended to slice and dice a lot of unthinking, gullible, weak-minded victims — on the right and left, and in between.

The only way to win at this game is to withdraw from the contest, to refuse to participate, to the extent that you can.

It’s a multi-dimensional chess game — political, economic, racial, social, mental, spiritual, ethnic, linguistic and more. And the chess masters behind the game are playing both sides — they are pushing both the black and the white pawns.

It is fruitless to ask which side they are on, because they are on both sides and neither. They have designed the parameters of the game, and are manipulating the gullible, stupid pawns in such a way, that no matter what the outcome of their game is — they will win! 

The pawns, and even the Kings and Queens, are being played off against each other, while those who have set the board and defined the boundaries of the game have ensured that any and all outcomes redound to their dark advantage. 

They are fully capable of putting someone like a Donald Trump, for instance, into a position of great political power and then eliminating that same player from the game — because it suits their dark purposes. They own or control all the meaningful pieces on the chess board and if they want to checkmate the King, then that is what they do. 

It Has To Do With Long Cycles And Celestial Geometry

The chess board extends well beyond the Earth, and includes the influence of other celestial bodies, in multiple ways and times. This is well understood by those who have mastered the ancient discipline of astrology. The science of astrology, yes, *science*, has long been used by those in positions of influence to bolster their political and military maneuvers.

Whether or not you know this, whether or not you believe this, whether or not you think that astrology is a real science is of little concern to those who wield its targeted use in the intelligence agencies, major corporations, military institutions and the like. In the main, they regard you and the rest of the teeming human masses as a herd to be managed, and from time to time, as a herd to be culled, a herd to be thinned out, a herd to perhaps be brought to a finer degree of control.

FBI Coup Plotters Escalate with the Race Card — Trump Being Set up for Riots and Assassination

from LaRouche PAC:

The coup plotters and their FBI attack dogs have chosen to use the race card to escalate the drive to eliminate Donald Trump — either politically or physically. While the McCarthyite witchhunt against Trump’s “collusion” with Russia proceeds under former FBI chief Robert Mueller (keep in mind that Mueller cut his teeth as head of the “Get LaRouche Task Force” in the 1980s), the FBI-controlled storm troopers on both the right and the left were deployed into the staged bloody confrontation in Charlottesville on August 12. Now the mainstream media is filled, 24 hours a day, with hysterical diatribes denouncing Trump as a racist and white supremacist, all because he said what was plainly visible on all the videos of the Charlottesville violence — that the “antifa” anarchists were also armed with clubs and were also beating people bloody. Classic gang-countergang counter-insurgency methods on display — not to overthrow an uncooperative regime somewhere else this time, which the American people have been indoctrinated to accept, but to overthrow the elected government of the United States.

Those who are screaming that anything is justified against the KKK, and denouncing Trump for not pardoning the violence of the antifa anarchists, are the same people who supported and cheered the swastika-waving nazis in Ukraine in 2014 as they threw Molotov cocktails at police and burned government supporters to death — apparently they believed these were “good nazis” helping the Obama Administration overthrow an elected government.

The Washington Post, while spewing lies about the FBI’s staged riot in Charlottesville, again showed its colors as the nation’s leading voice of the British Empire (perhaps sharing that dubious honor with the New York Times). The Post unleashed a frontal assault on The Nationmagazine, the preeminent liberal-progressive journal in the US, for refusing to fully support the “color revolution” against President Trump and the hysterical war mongering against Russia and President Vladimir Putin.

As EIR has documented, the publication in The Nation of the Patrick Lawrence article on Aug. 9, carefully documenting the exposure by the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) of the “Russia interfered in the election” scam, has gone viral. The mainstream media, however, has blacked out the VIPS’ proof that the Obama intelligence circles fabricated the entire story, to the purpose of preventing Trump from joining with Russia and China in ending the British/Bush/Obama permanent warfare policies and their “post-industrial society” destruction of the western economies.

The Washington Post attack, attempting to force The Nation publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel to retract or denounce the Lawrence article, is not only about the article itself, but about The Nation’s having dared to publish warnings from several of the nation’s actual experts on Russia, including vanden Heuvel’s husband, Stephen Cohen, warning that the anti-Russian hysteria was taking the world rapidly towards nuclear Armageddon based on lies and fearmongering. (Interestingly, Washington Post journalist Dave Weigel had tweeted on Aug. 14: “Unfortunately for The Nation, it got scooped on the DNC conspiracy story by LaRouchePAC,” and linked to the LaRouchePAC interview with Ray McGovern of the VIPS.

But the cat can not be put back in the bag. The Russia-gate operation is exposed and is ready to collapse. This is why the operation has switched into high gear to stir up the darkest and ugliest passions against Trump. The irony here, is that the only true statement about race in the Tuesday press conference with President Trump, was from Trump: “It is jobs. What people want now, they want jobs. They want great jobs with good pay. And when they have that, you watch how race relations will be.”

‘Throw Rocks & Riot’: Washington Post Article Calls For Full-On Nazi Style Violence In The Streets

0

by Jay Syrmopoulos, The Free Thought Project:

As extremism begins to grip American society on both sides of the ideological line, it’s worth noting that the mass media has been a catalyst for the sharpening of radical divide across the United States. Not since the Civil Rights-era has there been such a distinctly divided American nation. The Washington Post is right in the middle.

The violence witnessed in Charlottesville was indicative of a larger ideological battle that has, until recently, largely been played out in mass and social media, as the non-stop barrage of race-baiting news only serves to capitalize on the strife for clicks — ie increased revenue — at the expense of maintaining a civil society.

One can pinpoint the drastic recent sharpening of ideological divisions in the US to the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. In many ways, Brown’s murder was a catalyst to the divisive nature of American society that we are seeing play out in the streets today.

What began as online battles between people that believed Brown to be a victim, and those that claim he was a “thug” have now taken on a new life, as we witness a drastic sharpening of identities. Make no mistake that what we saw in Charlottesville last weekend was simply the beginning of a hardening of conflict solidarity, and which could inevitably result in continued violence and death.

The question now becomes: How did America come to resemble Weimar Germany – with socialist white nationalists engaged in violent altercations resulting in blood in the streets?

While racism has never left the proverbial building here in the US, the main drivers of the conflict actions now being seen are mainstream corporate media. After pushing identity politics en masse onto the American psyche, emboldened by extremist ideology, the systemic divisions of racial and ethnic groups have become the new norm, as the public discourse has been buried in the name of political correctness.

The stoking of racial tensions for profit, at the expense of an ongoing and continuous healing of racial division, has without question gripped the mass media and played a large roll in the hardening of racial and ethnic identities.

One need look no further than a recent op-ed published by the Washington Post, written by N.D.B. Connolly, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University. Connolly breathlessly appeals to the left to engage in violence and rioting as a means of precipitating change – while ignoring the fact that this will simply result in an increase in identity solidarity for those targeted by the violence.

A never ending feedback loop of violence and death if you will.

Connolly writes:

The white nationalist riot in Charlottesville, a city that boasts “diversity makes us stronger,” made a lot of things clear. One of them is that generic solutions to the racial problem — bland affirmations of inclusiveness, tolerance and “free speech” — will no longer work. Indeed, they have never worked, at least not on their own. …

[I]n April 1968, amid a flurry of other “rocks,” riots shook American cities following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. It took that rolling unrest, not the promise of further economic growth, to spur President Lyndon Johnson and Congress to action. Within a week they had passed the Fair Housing Act.

Over the past century, liberalism, vexed by an ever-sharp, ever-cutting white supremacy, has needed these rocks. …

Segregationists have again assumed their pedestals in the Justice Department, the White House and many other American temples. Paper alone won’t drive them out. Start throwing rocks.

Rather than promoting peaceful solutions that de-escalate the increasing racial/ethnic strife, the Washington Post advocates ideas that will almost certainly result in more destruction, violence, and death in America.

With strict standards for vetting op-eds, one of America’s most popular publications — albeit largely just a US government propaganda rag — essentially endorses violence as a solution to these complex racial and ethnic issues. One can reasonably assume, that since the piece was vetted by WaPo editors, they clearly understood the significance of allowing the promotion of violence to the American public at large.

Cop Blasts Antifa For Instigating Violence: You Want Another Charlottesville “You Should be Ashamed of Yourself” (VIDEO)

by Cristina Laila, The Gateway Pundit:

The Associated Press posted a video on Tuesday about a Charlottesville policeman who gets fed up with a liberal protester and accuses her of wanting to instigate violence.

“You want another Saturday, don’t you? You should be ashamed of yourself.”

Left-wing protesters were chanting ‘terrorists go home’ at a guy carrying a Confederate flag and saluting with a gun on him. The guy stood there silently as the protesters screamed in his face and held up middle fingers.

“You have a home to go to! There are people who are dead and injured and stuck in the f*cking hospital and yet you are here doing this when you could just stand up!”

The police escorted the guy holding the flag and put him in a police car because the left-wing protesters asked them to.

A woman followed the police officer and recorded him with her cell phone camera claiming that the guy had been ‘terrorizing’ people.

The police officer blasted the woman and said, “you want another day like Saturday, don’t you? You should be ashamed of yourself”

Point Of No Return Has Been Reached – Those Dedicated To The Overthrow Of America By Civil War Are About To Get More Than They Wanted

0

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Despite allowing himself to be pressured into making a follow-up statement regarding the events that occurred in Charlottesville, VA over the weekend, President Trump’s initial statement was spot on and should have been left alone, condemning the violence on “many, many sides,” because the Confederate Monument controversy is simply the latest “justification” on the part of the increasingly violent left, which started well before Donald Trump even announced his plans to run for President.

THE SECOND CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA STARTED LONG AGO

The link above is to an Atlantic article titled “The Rise Of The Violent Left” which is a good read and explains much of the escalation we have been seeing in Antifa driven riots and violence Americans have been subjected to since President Trump was elected, but a good summary of events, provided by Ben Domenech over at The Federalist, adds much-needed context as examples of leftists protests that have turned violent over the past eight years are documented.
 

Oakland 2009, Akron 2009, Pittsburgh 2009, Santa Cruz 2010, Oakland 2010, Los Angeles 2010, Oakland 2011, Chicago 2012, Anaheim 2012, Brooklyn 2013, Ferguson 2014, New York City 2014, Baltimore 2015, Anaheim 2016, Chicago 2016, St Paul 2016, Milwaukee 2016, Charlotte 2016, Standing Rock 2016, Oakland 2016, Portland 2016, Washington DC 2017, Berkeley 2017, Anaheim 2017, Berkeley (again) 2017, Berkeley (again again) 2017, Olympia 2017, and Portland 2017. This is a list of overwhelmingly leftist protests.

Adding even more context, we note the multiple “free speech” rallies that stayed largely peaceful until Antifa showed up, with the deliberate intent of causing violence, so that the media could say it was a “violent free speech rally” rather than outside agitatorscrashing a peaceful event.

An example: The April 15, 2017 Patriots Day Free Speech rally hosted by The Liberty Revival Alliance, an event scheduled ahead of time, and Antifa groups started telling its members that it was really a Nazi rally, asking for members to join in to show up and “shut it down.”

Once Antifa showed up, all hell broke loose, exactly as they planned. They weren’t there to “defend their communities” as their signssaid, because the free speech rally participants were not in any way being disruptive or violent, until they were attacked by Antifa.

Now lets look at Charlottesville, VA, where a rally to protest the removal of confederate monuments was scheduled, with organizers obtaining the permits to hold their rally, and once again Antifa type groups decided to “counter-protest,” which is fine, except they deliberately planned, once again, to cause chaos and violence, which resulted in the death of a woman and injuries to dozens of others.

I have reported this but lets make it clear how we can make that assertion: The governor of Virginia himself, warned the day before the rally was to take place that people should “stay away from Charlottesville” because “extremist groups, many of which are located outside of Virginia, who may seek to commit acts of violence against rally participants or law enforcement officials.”

Make no mistake, we are not defending the man that allegedly rammed his car into a crowd of people, killing a woman, and if investigations show he did so deliberately and not a tragic accident in an attempt to escape harm himself, then he should be held fully accountable for his actions, but the media, the violent left and their enablers, want to rewrite history, by ignoring the fact that authorities knew Antifa groups were coming to attack police and rally participants.

John Rubino – Financial Problems Always Lead to Social Unrest

0

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

John Rubino joined us today for our usual Monday show. What’s happening in Virginia is related to the underlying financial deterioration of the economy and the middle class. When things are going well, people don’t have time for demonstrations, they’re too busy working and earning income. Events such as this are emblematic of an economic crisis. Bitcoin at $4200. Bitcoin cash at $300. How does it tie into the bad economy meme? Is this truly the birth of competitive currencies? Is Tulipcoin far behind? We’ve already gotten Bitcohen, the Israeli answer to crypto-currencies.

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder: Hate Speech ‘Is Not Protected Under the First Amendment’

by Ian Hanghett, Breitbart:

On Monday’s broadcast of “MSNBCLive,” Black Lives Matter co-founder and Executive Director and Founder of Dignity Now Patrisse Cullors argued that hate speech isn’t protected by the First Amendment and white supremacists are “directly related” to President Trump’s policies.

Cullors said, “David Duke and the white supremacists who showed up to Charlottesville, that is Trump’s base. And that base is not isolated. It’s not — it’s directly related to Trump’s policies and the policies that have continued to harm and kill black people and our allies. I think we’re seeing a movement of white nationalists rising up because they’ve been emboldened by trump and his government. And I really want to invite people to be on the right side of history right now.”

She added, “I think what’s important in this moment is white nationalists are actually fighting to take away people’s rights. Black Lives Matter and groups like Black Lives Matter are fighting for equality. And hate speech, which is what we’re seeing coming out of white nationalist groups, is not protected under the First Amendment rights.”

We Cannot Condemn The Violence In Charlottesville Strongly Enough

0

by Michael Snyder, EndOfTheAmericanDream:

What just happened in Charlottesville, Virginia should break all of our hearts. This is not what our country is about, and I am really struggling to find words that are strong enough to denounce the violence that we just witnessed. Hating people because of the color of their skin is evil. I know that a lot of people are trying to put a political spin on what happened in Charlottesville, but the truth is that it had absolutely nothing to do with normal political discourse. A very, very small group of people that are filled with hate have been trying to draw attention to themselves, and now thanks to a senseless act of violence the eyes of the entire world are on them. The rest of us need to join together to strongly denounce them, because their kind of hate has no place in our society.

Many of you already know that I attended school in Charlottesville. I have a B.S. in Commerce from the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia, and I absolutely loved my time there. There is nothing like Charlottesville on a crisp autumn day, and I will always remember my long strolls along The Lawn. Without a doubt, I will always love UVA and the friendships that I made there will stay with me for the rest of my life.

So it deeply angers me that a very small hate-filled group of racists is dragging the name of my beloved Charlottesville through the mud. Now, instead of being known for all of the wonderful things it should be known for, Charlottesville will primarily be known for one unspeakably evil violent act

In Charlottesville, Heather Heyer, 32, was killed and 19 other people were injured when a car plowed into a group of counterprotesters.

Two state police officers also died when their helicopter crashed near town while they were trying to assist in the city Thomas Jefferson called home.

The word “demonic” definitely fits what took place, and my hope is that the entire nation will so loudly condemn what happened that it will greatly discourage any similar racial violence in the future. And fortunately, prominent leaders all over the country are already denouncing this senseless violence in extremely strong terms. For example, Pastor Darrell Scott posted the following message on Twitter

“There’s no way to justify or defend the abominable behavior of the hate groups responsible for the violence & destruction in Charlottesville”

And I think that Franklin Graham was right on point with the following statement…

Pray for Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe, law enforcement, and everyone struggling to deal with the chaos and violence that reared its ugly head in Charlottesville today. It is such a tragedy—life was lost and many people were injured. Violence and hatred aren’t the answer. God’s Word tells us, “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice” (Ephesians 4:31). Join me in praying for the injured, the families of those who died—and for peace to be restored.

A tragedy like this should unite all of us.

These are no “sides” to take in this matter, and there is nothing to debate. What was done was purely evil, and it was birthed out of a worldview that is purely evil as well. The following comes from Dr. Michael Brown

There is nothing American about White Supremacism — nothing heroic, nothing praiseworthy, nothing patriotic. It is a rotten, ugly mindset full of hatred, bigotry, and pride, and every person of conscience should denounce it. It degrades others who are also created in the image of God and takes His name in vain to further its cause. Whatever our political or racial or ethnic background, as Americans, we need to stand together against it.

Lastly, Ivanka Trump summed up things very well when she posted this statement on Twitter

“There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis.”

I simply do not understand the hatred that fuels racist hearts.

As a Christian, the Bible tells me that God considers every single individual to be of immense value. In fact, God loved each one of us so much that He sent His only Son to die on the cross for our sins.

So if Jesus was willing to die for someone, who are you to hate that person?

Planned Chaos In Virginia: Why Did Law Enforcement Stand Down Until Events Spiraled Out Of Control?

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

A day before the events that spiraled out of control in Virginia, resulting in one death and dozens of injuries, the Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe issued a statement warning people to “stay away” from Charlottesville, stating in part “In advance of [Saturday’s] rally there have been communications from extremist groups, many of which are located outside of Virginia, who may seek to commit acts of violence against rally participants or law enforcement officials.”

EVERYTHING WAS PLANNED IN ADVANCE

The fact that the Governor issued that statement before the planned White Supremacist “Unite The Right” rally even began, tell us a number of things, such as the even was planned, permits were obtained and the state authorities were aware that outside groups were coming in for the specific purpose, in the governor’s words, to “commit acts of violence against the rally participants.”

Which is exactly what happened.

It is also important to highlight, and hammer the point home, that the media consistently attempted to conflate different groups, misleading their audience by labeling the protesters as “alt-right” and “white nationalists,” rather than accurately pointing out they were “white supremacist,” which is a very important distinction.

Nationalist, via Merriam Webster: 1) an advocate of or believer in nationalism 2) a member of a political party or group advocating national independence or strong national government.

Supremacist, via Merriam Webster: 1) an advocate or adherent of group supremacy.

Whether one agrees or vehemently disagrees with the “message” espoused at the planned and approved white supremacist rally, the reason they were given the permits is because whether we like their message or hate it,  it is their First Amendment right to be able to hold their rally… free speech.

The point here is the rally was planned. The governor supposedly planned for potential violence as his statement before the event also said “In the event that such violent or unlawful conduct occurs, I have instructed state public safety officials to act quickly and decisively in order to keep the public and themselves safe,” and the “outside groups” planned to commit violence against the rally participants.

Everything was planned.

WAS LAW ENFORCEMENT TOLD TO STAND DOWN?

If law enforcement was ready, aware of all these plans, as was the governor of Virginia, how did things spiral out of control to the point where one person was killed, and 19 were injured when a car plowed through counter-protesters?

According to Seattle.PI, police are being criticized for the slow response to the violence that started even before the rally began, for failing to keep the rally participants and counter protesters apart:
 

Anger over the how police responded came from all directions and intensified after the deaths of a woman struck by a car that plowed into a group of counter protesters. Experts said police appeared outnumbered, ill-prepared and inexperienced.

“The worst part is that people got hurt and the police stood by and didn’t do a godd—- thing,” said David Copper, 70, of Staunton, Va., after an initial morning melee at a park that when unchecked by police for several minutes.

Fourteen people were injured in clashes; nine others were hurt in the car crash. Later, two Virginia State Police troopers were killed when their helicopter smashed into trees at the edge of town and burst into flames. The loss of police officers only compounded the calamity on a day that pushed police, city officials and residents to their limits.

Cable news replayed a seemingly endless loop of the early violence at Emancipation Park, where police in riot gear had surrounded the expanse on three sides, though seemed to watch as groups beat each other with sticks and bludgeoned one another with shields. Many on both sides came dressed for battle, with helmets and chemical irritants.

Police appeared at one point to retreat and then watch the beatings before eventually moving in to end the free-for-all, make arrests and tend the injured.

The Civil Unrest in Charlottesville is Part of the Cycle into 2020

0

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

The violence that erupted ahead of a planned rally where thousands of white nationalists were expected to gather for an alt-right protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, led to numerous injuries of which at least two people were seriously injured. A video appears all over YouTube showing the confrontation as a man is being dragged away by officials. The Unite the Right rally was being held at Emancipation Park with hundreds moving through the city, wearing militia uniforms, waving flags and chanting ‘Blood and Soil’ as they made their way towards the event.

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer had denounced the ‘cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance march down the lawns of the architect of our Bill of Rights’ and warned for residents to stay away from the rally. Clearly, this rally is anti-immigration with many pointing the finger at Europe.

We must realize that such riots against immigrants is by no means new. Turn the economy down and unemployment rises, the first thing people blame is the immigrant. For the major to label this event simply caused by “hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance” demonstrates he does not comprehend the cause nor does he even think this is something that has occurred in the past. The people who oppose this alt-right also are typically the people who are students and have lost nothing yet.
