CHARLOTTESVILLE -After a morning of violent clashes between white nationalists and counter protesters, police ordered hundreds of people out of a downtown park - putting an end to a noon rally that hadn’t even begun.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency shortly before 11 a.m.
Using megaphones, police declared an unlawful assembly at about 11:40 a.m., and gave a five-minute warning to leave Emancipation Park, where hundreds of neoNazis, Ku Klux Klans members and other white nationalists had gathered to protest the removal of a Confederate statue. They were met by equal numbers of counterprotesters, including clergy, Black Lives Matter activists and Princeton professor Cornel West.
But fighting broke out way before the noon rally, starting Friday night and then again Saturday morning.
Why aren't the police arresting the fascists? Hmmmmmm. From same article: "A large contingent of Charlottesville and Virginia state police in riot gear were stationed on side streets and at nearby barricades but did nothing to break up the melee. "

Perverse isn't it, Cornel West has more courage in his pinkie than the entire body of Hatredists, and the moron who inspires them, as if they have a fucking thing in common, like shrub bush and that beer they were Never going to have .
