One Dead As Car Hits Counter-Protesters After Virginia White Nationalist Rally

Reports indicate some of the white nationalists shouted anti-gay slurs as they marched through Charlottesville.

- "We reject the racism and violence of white nationalists like the ones acting out in Charlottesville".

The gathering of white nationalists was roundly condemned and a number of politicians called for the events to be called a terror attack. "So sad!" he tweeted.

Most took to expressing their anguish and outrage a the events in Charlottesville on Twitter.

A few prominent Republicans piled on and were more direct in their criticism. Just as we can justly identify radical Islamic terrorism when we see it, and call it out, so can we all see the racists in Charlottesville, and understand that they are anathema in our society, which depends so centrally on mutual respect. Instead, he called for unity among "all races, creeds and colors".

"Our country is doing very well in so many ways". The attacks we are witnessing in Charlottesville are completely unacceptable and must not be allowed to continue.

Asked what Trump meant by saying "on many sides", a White House official also pointed a finger at the counterprotesters.

"Our Founders fought a revolution for the idea that all men are created equal", his statement read.

Trump's fellow Republican politicians also slammed the President. There was no indication of foul play.

This speech is not the time to tout your accomplishments.

Saturday's rally marks the second time in six weeks that Charlottesville has faced a protest from white supremacist groups for its decision to remove the statue. The time for caution has long passed; we must take courageous action to expel white supremacy from the church.

"This represents a turning point for the people of this country", former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke spoke at the rally.

State police swooped in with tear gas as one counter-protestor who was repeatedly pummeled with sticks and a metal pole was left bleeding profusely. President Donald Trump has created a context in which white supremacists feel emboldened in their views and have no shame in admitting them publicly and vocally.

Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown tweeted, "Hatred and bigotry have no place in America".

In a follow-up tweet, James said that the youth deserve better.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Jay and Berke, both of whom were our close friends and trusted members of our team". Virginia's Governor Terry issued a declaration of his own shortly authorities ended the rally.

Trump's candidacy excited many white nationalists, who were thrilled to hear Trump mock the Black Lives Matter movement on the campaign trail and declare that "all lives matter". "I urge all people of good will-go home", he wrote on Twitter. "We are determined to take this country back".

The cause of the crash remains under investigation. Trump didn't do that. The rally was part of a persistent debate in the U.S. South over the display of the Confederate battle flag and other symbols of the rebel side in the Civil War, which was fought over the issue of slavery.

"Violence like this will solve nothing and will only beget more violence and sow more division", said Senator Dianne Feinstein.

Trump never used the words "white supremacy" or "white nationalism". It did not name the person. Officials say one person was killed and at least 26 were treated at local hospitals.
