Friday night, Jason Kessler’s Organized rally of White Nationalists and Charlottesville KKK members which led to what is being called the largest hate gathering of its kind in decades in the United States. They started by gathering around a statue of Thomas Jefferson chanting “white lives matter” , “you will not replace us”, and “end immigration”. Demonstrators claimed it was time they speak up for the white founders of this country. This led into this mornings rally resulting in brawls between demonstrators and counter-protesters. The Virginia Governor has declared a state of emergency “to aid state response to violence”. Kessler makes it very clear no matter what they will be present all weekend. The President and first lady both tweeted in response to this unlawful assembly at Emancipation Park. Encouraging Americans to use their freedom of speech without hate or bigotry. Donald Trump tweeted ” We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for.” We will see how today and tomorrow unfold as this sad event has shocked millions.
