Torch-bearing white nationalists march ahead of alt-right rally

Source: CNN

(CNN)Alt-right activists held torches and marched late Friday through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville.

Chanting "blood and soil" and "one people, one nation, end immigration," the group rallied around a statue of Thomas Jefferson before they clashed with counterprotesters, CNN affiliate WWBT reported.

The march came hours before a Saturday rally that police anticipate will attract as many as 2,000 to 6,000 people, in an event that could be the "largest hate-gathering of it's kind in decades in the United States," as described by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Before the group left the university's grounds when police arrived and ruled it unlawful assembly, outraged city and UVA officials condemned Friday's gathering.

1. Those jackholes were carrying tiki torches from pier 1 & home depot

The mosquitos of #Charlottesville were in more danger from the torches. If there were POC with tiki torches marching, you know the militarized police & national guard would have been there. Hell with those Nazis & alt Right trash.

20. Do you think they have an assigned spot and

have to go to that spot for every rally? Or is it as they arrive they are placed in proper rows?

4. Tiki torches.

Hard to fear them when they are carrying patio furniture. That much citronella in one place might have been overwhelming.

6. Those protesting these hateful bigots need to chant "Donald Trump Sucks" and

get them all to defend Trump, that would make for Must See TV! Having a bunch of KKK, Skin Heads, Nazis, and other hate groups show their support for their President!

7. Surprise surprise, Trump has emboldened the racists. Good, now we have their pictures

to repost everywhere, at their place of work, at their children's schools, at their churches and supermarkets.

Let's see how proud of themselves they feel when their disgusting behavior is turned into a campaign of shame.

PS: Why are the most disgusting physical and educational representations of human beings always the one promoting "white pride"? Have they really got no clue what they look like to the rest of the world? Want to borrow a mirror, you repulsive Deliverance rejects?

PPS: Can we please let the shitbag South secede already? Experiment over; dismal failure, stop even trying. Everything except the Northeast and West coasts can now be officially renamed "Jesusland", and they can do whatever the fuck they want. I'm tired of being associated with these ignorant assholes. Good riddance, enjoy your racism, poverty and "freedom" from healthcare.

9. Chanting "blood and soil" Lebensraum (living space)

Last edited Sat Aug 12, 2017, 08:30 AM - Edit history (1)

Why don't they just go back to the old school German word? Lebensraum.
That was one of Hitler's reasons for his war in the east because the superior
German people needed the land in order to build the 3rd Reich's need for
food and raw materials.

Trump has given evil a public voice in America.

19. Good point on history...

Another point to make is: how did it end for uncle Adolf, Josef Goebbels, and Mussolini? Could ask the same question about Ceaucesco of Romania: in the end, how did he fare? People forget that when dictator strongmen fall, it can be disastrous for the dictator/strongman.

11. The tiki torch still sets a light

It the modern day equivalent to real torches which can't be found easily. Modern society is about adapting, so they now use the tiki torches. We can laugh at their torches but their message is real.

17. That still doesn't change the imagery..

...of lazy Americans, buying their "torches" at a big box retailer. Imagery is important and that was pathetic.

25. True, but the imagery I'm seeing

...is one of a sea of haters in the night. From a distance it shows only as a stream of fire which is powerfully scary. True, up close they are pathetic.

For people who do counter-demonstrate, it's god to think of physical security.

Over 60 million people died in World War II. People showing off the swastika or the Confederate flag are nothing less than mass-murderer wannabes.

29. It was an illegal march.

Where were their permits for a march involving torches and trying to intimidate people gathered in a church during prayers. Not only did they put the neighborhoods in danger but the church and the lives of all involved.

Fuck the police, they did nothing because it was a bunch of white Bitch Brook bros. snowflakes.

Unite the Right torch rally ends in violence at the Rotunda

The Daily Progress staff reports 15 hrs ago

Members of the Alt-Right {sic} led a torch march through the grounds of the University of Virginia Friday night in Charlottesville, Va. Photo/Andrew Shurtleff/The Daily Progress

The building in the background is the Rotunda. The demonstrators are north of the Rotunda. They are facing University Avenue and a statue of Thomas Jefferson.



That's Old Cabell Hall in the background on the left. The low buildings across the middle of the picture form the West Lawn.



This is the statue of Jefferson facing University Avenue. The building across the street is Madison Hall.
