Charlottesville, Va. – A white national terrorist mowed down a crowd of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, V.A. The attack occurred between 1:40 P.M. and 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, August 12, 2017. The counter-protesters were marching peacefully in opposition to a white supremacist rally, permitted by the city.
Bodies were seen flying through the air, along with shoes, while the murder plowed through the crowd. Racism appears to be the motive for the assailant’s violent crime. The criminal has been taken into custody, his name has yet to be released.
Some counter-protestors blame President Trump’s blunt micro-racialized outburst for the recent national surge of racist behavior.
The Evening Before Saturday’s Terror Attack
On Friday night, August 11, 2017, white nationalist marched through the U of VA campus dressed in polo shirts and khaki clothing; some displayed “Make America Great Again,” hats while toting tiki torches, a ritual reminiscing the Ku Klux Klan. Counter-protesters reported hearing white supremacist chant “Hail Trump.”
The congregation of Neo Nazis vocalized their disapproval of the U of VA’s plans to remove the Robert E. Lee statue, Lee committed treason by joining the confederacy during American Civil War. The irony, U of VA intends to take the statue out of “Emancipation Park.”
