UPDATE: A car plowed into a crowd of protesters; one person is dead and at least 19 people were injured with injuries ranging from 'not serious' to 'life threatening.'

Projectiles were being thrown at the car in question but it isn't known if the car was speeding to get away from the projectiles or if they were being thrown to stop the automobile attack on pedestrians.

Charlottesville, Va. -- At least two people were seriously injured in clashes between white nationalist protesters and counter-protesters at the rally. It has become so bad the governor of Virginia as warning the public to 'stay away.'

Thousands were expected to attend the Unite the Right rally being held at Emancipation Park and early in the morning, hundreds were seen marching through the city. The reason for the rally was ostensibly due to the city's plan to remove the statue of Civil War Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

The real reason for the rally was apparently to start a race riot.

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer denounced the "cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism and intolerance march down the lawns of the architect of our Bill of Rights."

A local state of emergency was declared at 11:30 a.m. determining the rally was an unlawful assembly. Arrests were made after police tried to clear the park and a group of protesters pushed back against them.

Alt right leader Jason Kessler led a torch lit march through the University of Virginia campus on Friday. Hundreds of racist white nationalists joined him, waving American flags and some chanted "Jews will not replace us" and "white lives matter."

They clashed with University of Virginia students who held an anti-racist protest on the grounds. During this event one person was arrested and several people on campus were treated for minor injuries.

Counter-protesters flocked to the march in retaliation against the white nationalists--exactly what the white nationalists were hoping for--as they screamed: "We're here, we're gay, we fight the KKK!"

Even before the rally officially began, tensions escalated to the point of people throwing objects, getting into fights and shooting pepper spray at each other. The police dutifully watched from behind the safety of fences.

As this is being written, the National Guard has arrived on the scene to help the police if the need arises.

U.S. District Judge Glen Conrad granted a preliminary injunction Friday in a lawsuit filed against alt right scum wafer Jason Kessler.

It has been rumored that Kessler was, at one time, involved in the Occupy movement, and if that's true (and I don't know that it is) then he's obviously a publicity-seeking phony.
This is who they are

Unfortunately, Kessler and his ilk support President Trump and liberals try to equate that with Trump supporting them. Nothing can be further from the truth.

But while President Trump needs to defend the First Amendment rights of Americans, he also needs to condemn the white nationalist movement. They are haters of everyone not white, not Christian and not as stupid as them.

Part of the anti-protesters were with Antifa. Sadly, the neo Nazi's make this bunch of losers look good in comparison. 

Remember, the alt right is not the right.
