Creepiest report I've read thus far (Charlottesville)

BBC: A reckoning in Charlottesville

In the middle of Emancipation Park in Charlottesville on Saturday, two young women, one white and one black, took each other's hands and held them tightly, and with their other hands they gripped the steel barrier in front of them.

A few feet away, a young white man with a buzzed haircut and sunglasses leaned towards them over a facing barrier. "You'll be on the first f*****g boat home," he screamed at the black woman, before turning to the white woman. "And as for you, you're going straight to hell," he said. Then he gave a Nazi salute.

<snip>

They gathered early in the morning at Emancipation Park - formerly Lee Park - where the statue sits, some dressed in full tactical gear and openly carrying rifles. Others wore black shirts, helmets, and boots.

In a column they surged into the park, using sticks and their fists to shove aside anti-fascist counter-protesters. Then they blocked off the entrance with shields. Inside, David Duke, the former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, grinned and waved as the crowd, almost entirely white and male, cheered him on, chanting his name and putting their arms up in Nazi salutes.

3. The article stated twice that it was mostly male violence. No one ever addresses this constant

similarity. Men and violence. Throughout history and the around the world. Why?

10. The topic is too large. It would completely overwhelm and trivialize the current events.

7. These people are

coming out in force now that their leader is in the WH. I blame tRump for this hatred and violence. He is a lunatic, who says whatever pops into his mind, regardless of consequences. Destroying the entire country with his incompetance and ignorance. The gop OWNS this mess, and they should face it.

8. For those who say their history is being destroyed by removing those statues...

 

How many statues of Hitler are in Germany or anywhere else? The first thing to go in Iraq was Saddam's statue. how about Russia and the destruction of Lenin and other statues? And for you Christians out there, one of the first things the Lord told the Israelites was to get rid of all the statues and likenesses of the other gods they worshiped and an entire population suffered when just one statue was discovered among them.

So take your cover story for your hate and bigotry out of my face. It's not about history, heritage, or honor. It just about rank racism and white supremacy PERIOD!

11. Also, they were traitors. Plain and simple. Traitors don't deserve statues. They deserve to be in...

as they say, the dustbin of history, which is exactly where that statue belongs.
