    Liberal fascists and globalists don't need a white man as a species, he is able to think, so they want to destroy all the white, they filled Europe blacks and Arabs, they need the money and slaves, they waged war around the world, he is pushing the world to nuclear war with Russia and China

    Degradation, the liberal fascists are destroying history as ISIS they are birds of a feather, they don't want people thinking they need slaves and consumers, and the slaves may be ignorant and ignorant ! White people built this country and this civilization, but now white people are not needed, they know how to think, now was all about the money

    I have seen in some youtube videos where the white nationalist protesters say that they are not racist. If you are not racist then why where you shouting You will not replace us and Jews will not replace us! Those sound like very racist chants to me.

    Democrats the party and the billionaires, news organizations, newspaper and others should be sued to give reparations to black people for slavery that caused the Civil War. A class action lawsuit should be brought by a law firm to give black people $1,000,000 each for their ancestors being slaves in the Democratic South. Start with a lawsuit of the Democratic Party and if they don't have enough money expand the lawsuit to include all the current and past Democratic party contributors. There are about 70,000,000 black people in the USA so the lawsuit total would be $70,000,000,000,000. (trillion). The law firm could be paid 35%. This is no joke someone should start it immediately that way black people would be happy.

    You're telling a one side story here. It would have been peaceful if the Antifa didn't start the violence. The police were first told to stand down and then could have created barriers between the groups. Instead, they forced the alt-right right into the Antifa group. The mayor and the governor are culpable as well as handled it very badly. You CBS are exacerbating the issues with your bias reporting. I condemn both groups for their views.

    OOPS: 'Antifa' Protesters Vandalized Peace Monument They Thought Was a Confederate Statue. Antifa protesters marched on Piedmont Park in Atlanta, Georgia this week, bent on destroying the "Confederate monument" they said was encouraging racism in their community. But it was only after they'd vandalized and spray-painted the statue that they realized it was a "peace monument" designed to encourage national healing in the wake of the Civil War.😳😆

    notes of the event (borrowed): 1) Far right groups plan a protest in Charlottesville weeks before. Get official permission
    2) Just days before, the mayor of Charlottesville decides to retract the permission for the protest
    3) With help of the ACLU the organizers go to court and get the permission reinstated
    4) During the protest the police refuse the Far right protestors access to the park where they were supposed to hold a speech
    5) The police declare an unlawful assembly, something that was officially declared already at 10:00
    AM, before much had happened
    6) Less clear here, but apparently by denying them entrance, the
    Far-right groups had to go back through or very close to the
    left/far-left counter protestors. Police seems to be absent now even
    though having significant numbers (even heard there were more police
    than protestors)
    7) Fights ensue between far right and far left groups like we've seen at
    8) Far right guy decides to take revenge (or maybe he panicked, nobody
    really knows, but former is assumed) and drives a car into a crowd,
    killing one woman and wounding dozens of other people
    9) Apparently unrelated, but a police helicopter crashes nearby, killing
    the 2 occupants
    10) Media blames the far right for everything, (sometimes even
    implicitly for the 2 police officers in the helicopter crash). Portrays
    the far right as the only ones that engaged in violence
    11) Trump is asked to denounce the far right, he does I think upto 3
    times now, but also says violence happened on both sides
    12) Media goes into a frenzy.
    13) The far right protesers appeared to be heavily outnumbered.

    Things of note: There was a survivalist/militant group there called the
    Oathkeepers. They carried assault rifles and were in military uniforms.
    People cite them as proof the right came armed to the teeth, but these
    people are basically LARP-ers, believing that one day they will have to
    safe guard the American people when the US government becomes
    tyrannical. (or something like that)

There will suddenly be a sense that if the world was ruled by one man, it would be better for all.

    Did no one notice that the police and state troopers stood by and watched? It is clear that the cops are definitely on the white-supremacist side. No wonder people do not trust the cops and have no respect, not to mention smart people are afraid of the cops. I would prefer an encounter with a mugger to an encounter with a cop. If I was black I would absolutely fear living in Charlottesville. When you have the cops stand around watching people armed with automatic weapons attack counter-protesters, you have to wonder... were the police among the white-supremacists or were they simply afraid?

    This is what happens when a generation of "everybody" gets a trophy, grows up. A generation of "time out" vs getting spanked. You never learned right from wrong, you are the generation of 2 working parents who allowed a day care to instill values. A generation who has never had a struggle in your life. Like a dog that is never disciplined, your energy is destructive. You are nothing more than untrained puppies, destroying everything around you, cuz you weren't properly socialized or taught right from wrong at a young age. Your parents failed....first world problems.
