Boy Boy Boy this shit is crazy.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. ― Once again, white supremacists and the aggressive fringe groups that show up to meet them took over an American city that never wanted them in the first place, enveloping the area in violence.
On Saturday, thousands of “alt right” members, white supremacists and other fringe groups took to the streets in Charlottesville for what the supremacists called a “Unite the Right” rally that drew notorious far-right figures including Richard Spencer ― a white nationalist perhaps best known for being punched in the face after President Donald Trump’s inauguration ― alongside thousands of counter-protesters.
The supremacists were met by counter protestors Antifa, a fringe left radical group that often wears black to disguise themselves. Violence was met on both sides, causing a declaration of a “local emergency” by the Charlottesville Police Department.
(Side Dish: This is some shit that I aint seen in my life. Like this is something straight out of the 60’S I think so far this decade has got to be one of the worst when it came to racial tensions in this country. Note I said ONE OF THE WORST)
The Virginia governor took to Twitter to speak on the situation.
Those standing on the sidelines were baffled as to why police weren’t immediately stopping the skirmishes that took over the park.
“If this were Ferguson riot gear, tear gas, everything would have been used, there’s a different standard here in Charlottesville,” said Anthony Bennett, a pastor from Connecticut.
Unidentified militia members brandishing guns also showed up at the scene. As more fights began breaking out, police could be seen putting on riot gear.
(Because the police are agreeing with this shit, they are white supremacists.)
As the scheduled time for the rally got closer, hundreds more white supremacists could be seen marching under a banner hung by the city that read “Diversity makes us stronger.”
UVA President Teresa A. Sullivan had this to say:
“…I am deeply saddened and disturbed by the hateful behavior displayed by torch-bearing protestors that marched on our Grounds this evening. I strongly condemn the unprovoked assault on members of our community, including University personnel who were attempting to maintain order,” she said. “… The violence displayed on Grounds is intolerable and is entirely inconsistent with the University’s values.”
Well I have to honestly say that this shit is crazy, lol. I havent seen this much hell in my life. It’s so bad that the city even announced a state of emergency.
