    ThumbsDown Rioting at Charlottsville Va (UVA) by white nationalists and counter protesters

    Charlottesville, Virginia (CNN)Demonstrators clashed Saturday on the streets of Charlottesville ahead of a "Unite the Right" rally as white nationalists and other right-wing groups -- and counter-protesters -- converged in this college town in the latest flare-up of a running nation debate over the country's identity.
    Fist fights and screaming matches erupted before the rally, which police expect to attract thousands of people. The skirmishes unfolded just hours after a scuffle Friday night between torch-bearing demonstrators and counter-protesters at the nearby University of Virginia.
    Saturday's rally is the latest event drawing white nationalists and right-wing activists from across the country to this Democratic-voting college town -- a development first precipitated by the city's decision to remove symbols of its Confederate past.

    OK, explains what this comment is about:

    Welcome to College Game Day live from Charlottesville! Will Lee Corso put on the Hitler or Stalin head?

    I was going to go and wear my "Pro-R. E. Lee, Anti-KKK" t-shirt, but Mrs. Tidewater asked me not to go.

    She's probably right.
    On the other hand, maybe I could be the one guy who could bring both sides of the riot together in a common cause: to kick my backside because they both would hate me.

    They looked fairly peaceful until the counter protesters attacked the marchers from what I saw.
