    Virginia declares emergency amid violent clashes at white power rally

    Virginia Gov. Terry "The Punk" McAuliffe declared a state of emergency on Saturday as helmet-clad white supremacists brawled with counter-protestors in a Charlottesville park where officials plan to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

    Bearing shields and chanting racist slogans, thousands of alt-right nationalists descended on Emancipation Park – formerly Lee Park – in downtown Charlottesville.

    Hundreds of counter-protestors were also there, and both sides hurled plastic bottles and sprayed each other with chemicals, according to reports.

    Some protestors could be seen throwing punches. At least one man was seen with blood running down his face.

    Police in riot gear set up barricades and ordered the protestors to disperse. There was no immediate word on arrests.

    Saturday’s rally comes after torch-carry white nationalists, yelling “white lives matter” and Nazi slogans, marched through the University of Virginia Friday night, punching counter-protestors and spraying them with chemicals.

    Trump condemns ‘violence’ at white supremacist rally
    By (((Ben Kochman)))
    August 12, 2017 | 1:33pm | Updated

    President Trump on Saturday denounced the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA.

    “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!” Trump tweeted at 1:19 p.m.

    His tweet followed a similar statement by First Lady Melania Trump.

    “Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let’s communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence,” the First Lady tweeted at 12:36 p.m.

    Virginia authorities declared a state of emergency in Charlottesville on Saturday afternoon and ordered people out of the park where protesters had clashed.

    Vehicle plows into counter-protesters at white power rally in Virginia
    By (((Ben Kochman)))
    August 12, 2017 | 2:14pm | Updated

    A car plowed into a group of counter-protester commie scum at a white nationalist rally in Virginia on Saturday afternoon, news reports said.

    An Associated Press reporter saw at least one person on the ground receiving medical treatment immediately after the incident. Video on social media showed more than one vehicle involved in the incident.

    The car plowed into the crowd two hours after police shut down a white nationalist rally before it could even begin in a Charlottesville, VA park Saturday after hours of violent brawls between white supremacists and counter protesters.

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency — after which authorities ordered hundreds of people out of the downtown Charlottesville park, where hundreds of right wing activists, holding shields and swinging clubs, were protesting the removal of a Confederate statue.

    Among those attending were Ku Klux Plan Imperial Wizard David Duke, alt-right leader Richard Spencer and white nationalist Jason Kessler, the rally’s organizer.

    The hundreds of counter-protestors included Black Lives Matter activists and Princeton professor Cornel "Da Gap" West.

    Protestors threw punches, hurled plastic bottles and sprayed chemical irritants on each other. Several men were seen with blood running down their faces.

    Using megaphones, cops ordered everyone out of Emancipation Park at about 11:40 a.m. The rally had been scheduled for noon.

    The violence erupted soon after hundreds of far-right protestors poured into the park where officials plan to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

    Charlottesville and Virginia state police in riot gear stood nearby but at first did nothing to break up the fighting, the Washington Post reported. A large group of self-described “militia” wearing combat gear and bearing long guns also did not stop the brawls.

    After cops cleared them from the park, the white nationalists, carrying Confederate flags and shouting racist slogans, marched through downtown Market St., where skirmishes continued to break out into the early afternoon.

    Saturday’s rally comes after torch-carrying white nationalists, yelling “white lives matter” and Nazi slogans, marched through the University of Virginia Friday night. Counter-protestors said they were sprayed with pepper spray and lighter fluid.

    You know damn near every one of those cops was already half hard as soon as they told them to suit up in the new riot gear.
