White Supremacists, Nazis and Alt-Right Groups Carry Torches To UVA Campus
When they say “Make America great again“, THIS is what they are talking about.
A mob of HUNDREDS of white supremacists, neo-nazis, and alt-right douchebags descended upon the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville, Virginia carrying torches and shouting “You will not replace us!” according to DailyProgress.
Let’s be totally clear about one thing, racism NEVER died. Likely never will, but this era of Donald Trump and band of merry bigots have emboldened these people in a way that we haven’t seen in quite some time.
The racist rally was sparked by the city of Charlottesville’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. from the ironically named Emancipation Park. You know these type of muthaf**kas act like he was their damn daddy.
This is some sh!t straight out of the 60’s! Police arrived to break up the violent “unlawful assembly” after the WASPy whites began hitting people with their torches.
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.”
We are keeping an eye on the activity at the school where thousands are still there and violence is still erupting as we speak. We are watching the violence unfold on MSNBC and we can tell you that the police have not acted NEARLY as violent against these white folks as they did against our brothas and sistas in places like Ferguson.
If you’re in Charlottesville, or planning to go, PLEASE be safe.
