Some of the antifa counter-protesters playing "slap and tickle," with a spray can flame thrower.


Mrs. Tidewater's cousin works in the UVa hospital and was on the job today.
She was badly rattled.

Yikes...............there is a photo (over on some site that I have been known to read) that shows the car ramming the crowd.

Bodies flying in the air, every which way. Judging by the posters, and the clothing, the folks in the crowd had, pretty safe to safe it was some notzy horse's patoot.

If I can inject some levity, despite the tragic loss of life, what are the dorks in that video doing? What was it supposed to be? Lord of the Flies or Young Frankenstein.

If they only quit when they were ahead. (If they ever were.) No, they had to push it and push more. And then someone else pushes back, and.......

Charlottesville tried Friday night to change the venue of the "Unite the Right" rally.
A Federal judge issued an emergency court order forcing Charlottesville to allow the rally at Emancipation Park as planned.
The judge bears a certain amount of responsibility for the carnage that ensued.
Would have moving the venue prevented the violence? I think things would have progressed the same.

My problem is if you start to move/cancel events because of the threat of violence, then you let the antefa / nazis / islamists control who can and cannot speak and where and how.

(I do consider the antefa to be less deplorable than the other two groups, but as I am equally likely to get punched in the face by all three, I included them.)

The driver of the car that plowed into protesters was pictured holding a symbol of Vanguard America (above), a white supremacist group. His personal Facebook page prominently displays the Othela rune, a symbol frequently used by Neo-Nazis. Read more at the SPLC (LINK).

All available evidence shows this guy to be a white supremacist who committed an act of domestic terrorism. Watching the president repeatedly dodge reporters and steadfastly refuse to condemn white supremacy by name when directly asked continues a sickening trend that we've watched play out for nearly two years.

The only good thing I can about this is that they didn't decide to hold their rally in Tuscaloosa.
