    Virginia State Police on Tuesday contradicted Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s (D) claim that Charlottesville protesters had weapons “stashed around the city.” McAuliffe made the claim about stashed weapons during an interview on DeRay McKesson’s podcast Save the People. Twitter user @nycsouthpaw quoted McAuliffe using the podcast interview to describe protesters, saying, “They had battering rams and we had picked up different weapons that they had stashed around the city.” Yet the very next day–August 15–Virginia State Police countered McAuliffe’s narrative by denying that any weapons caches were discovered during sweeps of the city. Reason’s CJ Ciaramella tweeted: "I just got comment...

    Virginia governor encourages cities to take down Confederate monuments Posted: Aug 16 2017 06:50PM EDT Updated: Aug 16 2017 07:04PM EDT RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe says he's changing his mind on the need to remove Confederate statues in the wake of a deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. McAuliffe released a statement Wednesday saying monuments of Confederate leaders have become "flashpoints for hatred, division and violence." He's encouraging local governments and General Assembly to take down those monuments and put them museums.

    One of the outstanding issues in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville this weekend is the conduct of the Virginia State Police and how the two sides were able to confront each other, leading to the death of Heather Heyer. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, in response to questions about the state’s response, said on Monday that the State Police actually picked up weapons that they [alt-right/white nationalist/neo-Nazi/white supremacist] had stashed around the city:,

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe's actions before and after the deadly weekend race clashes in Charlottesville are coming under fire amid calls for an independent review to determine if politics played a role. Former Republican Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore on Tuesday raised new questions about Richmond's involvement in the riots the claimed three lives and said the public "needs to know" if the state and city had taken the proper precautions to avoid the clashes and if police were told to stand down. The ACLU said McAuliffe was using the group as a scapegoat. (Graeme Jennings/Washington Examiner) In an interview with...

    Three people lost their lives because of the violence in Charlottesville, VA; Heather Heyer and troopers Jay Cullen and Berke Bates. Heyer died from injuries received when she was struck by a vehilce allegedly driven by James Alex Fields. Cullen and Bates died in a helicopter crash while participating in event assessment. None of this had to happen. It was allowed to happen. Someone wanted this to happen. White Supremacist Jason Kessler of the group "Unite the Right" was the organizer of the rally. He had been granted a permit to hold the rally in Emancipation Park near the statue of...

Give them space. Give them room so they can get it out of their system, give them space. Look, the police were ordered to stand down in Charlottesville. Somebody wanted that to happen, folks.

    Who gave the Charlottesville police the stand down order that lead to the death of one person over weekend? That question still has yet to be answered. Was it’ the far left mayor or Clinton lackey and Governor of Virginia Terry Mcauliffe? Could Heather D. Heyer still be alive today if police weren’t given a stand down order and let the white supremacists and terrorist liberals riot? There are some reports, some of the AntiFa and BLM terrorist hit the driver of the car with a baseball bat. That doesn’t excuse him for what he did. But if people were...

    Wastington Examiner ^ | August 14,2017 | By Washington Examiner
    The first failing was that of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer, and the police in failing to separate the Nazis from the counter-protesters who showed up to meet them. Ahead of the event, the Washington Examiner's Tom Rogan warned against the city's attempt to relocate the Nazis from their desired place of protest. He pointed out that the more sensible course would be to allow them to protest in Emancipation Park as a way to contain them and keep the counter-protestors away from them. The authorities instead chose to allow the warring factions to intermingle, with predictable...
  • Women’s March Blames NRA for Charlottesville ‘Act of Terror’

    Feminists can’t wait to find any reason, no matter how far-fetched, to justify their activism. Behold the feminists behind the Women’s March. On August 14, the facebook page for the Women’s March reshared the NRA video that sparked their 17 mile march in July. The video was captioned with the words, “If you didn’t get why we protested the NRA, watch this ad. The act of terror in #Charlottesville is the clenched fist of truth they called for.” Nowhere in the video are supremacists or racists mentioned. And it’s worth mentioning that Heather Heyer, who was killed protesting the white...

    As an attendee of the Unite The Right rally and scheduled speaker, I have serious questions about the actions of Virginia police on Saturday. It appears that police created a dangerous situation which was entirely avoidable. I will explain in detail the facts of what happenedOne does not need to support any of the positions of the alt-right to be concerned about what this means about the state of free speech in America.This is Lee Park in Charlottesville, as it was laid out for Saturday’s rally. The red lines indicate the position of metal barriers. The rally had a legally...

    One of the things we've learned over the past year is that events like the violence in Charlottesville, Va., are often viewed very differently in different places. Places like rural white communities that make up President Trump's most loyal base. One such place is Mineville, N.Y., a tiny Rust Belt town in the Adirondack Mountains north of Albany, where on Sunday afternoon we found Christopher LaMothe sitting on a bench. In these small towns, events like what happened in Charlottesville are also portrayed differently in the conservative media. When Trump first responded to the deadly violence in Charlottesville, he blamed...

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. A Virginia police chief said Monday that he "absolutely has regrets" about violence that erupted over the weekend when dozens of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members clashed with counterprotesters. As the world watched pandemonium in Charlottesville unfold live on television Saturday, officers seemed to stand on the sidelines as fists flew, bats swung and objects soared through the air. "We were hoping for a peaceful demonstration," Chief Al Thomas said at a news conference. "Gradually the crowd size increased along with aggressiveness and hostility of the attendees towards one another." After police ordered everyone out...

    On Saturday, August 12, violence erupted amongst skirmishes between protestors and counter-protesters gathered around the removal of a Robert E. Lee monument in Charlottesville, Virginia. With reports of the brutality and responsive protests unfolding, the complexity of the event is quickly being packaged by the mainstream media in a way that advances the Democratic political establishment’s ongoing effort to discredit President Donald Trump using false and inflammatory media narratives that exploit America’s systemic and troubling racism for political gain.

  • McAuliffe Counters Critics of Police Response to Charlottesville Violence

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Sunday strongly defended the police response to the violent demonstrations here on Saturday, saying that law enforcement authorities had done “great work” in “a very delicate situation.” Brittany Caine-Conley, a minister in training at Sojourners United Church of Christ, who had come with other faith leaders to protest against the white nationalists, said she was horrified to see officers in the park watching the violence take place outside in the street. “There was no police presence,’’ she said. “We were watching people punch each other; people were bleeding all the while police were...
  • Gov. McAuliffe in Charlottesville ‘No Place in America’ for Alt-Right, Refuses to Condemn AntiFa

    The usually busy streets of the historic downtown of Charlottesville saw its tourists and locals substituted with heavily armed police and protesters this afternoon, following altercations which lasted from Friday night through to Saturday morning. Originally billed as a protest in favour of free speech — alongside the disdain over the removal of Confederate statues in the city — the “alt-right” rally found itself transformed into a torch-wielding, Nazi-flag waving dereliction of American values — at least considering the publicity afforded to the event, and the behaviour of some of the rally’s attendees.

    If you watched the news in the last 24 hours, you again saw the political violence that has become far too common in modern America. Not to mention the lack of police response, which has also become strangely ubiquitous. As I write, events continue to unfold in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a Unite the Right rally organized by Jason Kessler, the “alt-right” leader of Unity and Security for America, is taking place — in large part to protest the city council’s decision to remove a Confederate statue. By “events,” I mean punches thrown, objects hurled, people beaten down with clubs, folks...

    Some points that give the scam away: Operation in Terry McAuliffe's state. No reason for this other than to give McAuliffe national attention for opposing it, launching him into the 2020 Dem primary. He even tries to Streisand more useful idiots into showing up by ordering everyone to stay away. Use of Confederate flag imagery. Republicans have no use for the Confederate flag (we never did, we crushed the Democrat rebellion that created the flag). We control the government for the vast majority of states at every level, the entire federal government, and we own practically everything except a few...
