'Peacefully' is a white supremacist code word for 'so's you don't get caught.'
She urged her little munchkin that if he was going to another white supremacist rally to "be careful."
James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Maumee, Ohio, texted his paraplegic mother, Samantha Bloom on Friday to say he dropped his pussycat off at her house so he could go to the "alt-right" rally in Virginia.
Ms. Bloom said she didn't realize that it was a white supremacist rally. "I thought it had something to do with Trump. Trump's not a white supremacist," she said, and became visibly upset as she learned what her son had done.
"He had an African-American friend . . . ," as her voice trailed off.
The Blade reported Sunday that the FBI had interviewed her about her son.
Bloom had returned from a Saturday dinner unaware of her son's arrest.
"I don't talk to him about political views. So I don't understand what the rally was about," she said. He reportedly told her about the rally the previous week.
The New York Daily News reported photographing Fields on the front lines of the rally around 10:30 a.m. He was flanked with other racist white men in snazzy polo shirts and tan slacks holding the racially charged black-and-white insignia of the Vanguard America hate group.
Vanguard America wisely denied any association with Fields, but, hey, you never know. They claimed they handed out shields "to anyone in attendance who wanted them" just as long as they weren't black, Hispanic, Jews or Asian. (Feel free to add more groups if you wish.)
In an illiterate Twitter post on Sunday Vanguard America wrote:
"All our members are safe an (sic) accounted for, with no arrests or charges."Which shows the police weren't arresting people because they could have had a field day.
Fields entered the Army on August 18, 2015 and less than four months later, on December 11th, his active duty mysteriously concluded. Perhaps the Army still doesn't accept racist schmucks in their ranks.
The New York Daily News quoted Caitlin Robinson, who attended Ockerman Middle School in Florence, Ky., with Fields saying that he was interested in "far-right" ideologies years before.
"On many occasions there were times he would scream obscenities whether it be about Hitler or racial slurs," Robinson told the paper in an email.
But of course, Hitler was by no means a "far right" scum. He was a socialist and called his party the National Socialist German Workers Party, but you won't hear that on MSNBC or CNN.
Robinson's email also said that Fields "mostly kept to himself" and "didn't start fights or try to fight." She also said he was "exceptionally odd and an outcast to be sure."
Fields' father was killed by a drunken driver just months before his birth and was left money that his uncle kept in trust for him until he reached adulthood. In spite of the fact that he received the money, he obviously hasn't yet reached adulthood.
"When he turned 18, he demanded his money, and that was the last I had any contact with him," the uncle told the paper.
Fields is charged with second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and leaving the scene. A bond hearing is scheduled for Monday.
