University of Virginia police dispersed a gathering of far-right protesters on the Charlottesville, Va. campus Friday night ahead of a planned demonstration by white nationalists, white supremacists and alt-right groups on Saturday.
Police arriving on the scene declared the protest on Friday an "unlawful assembly" and told demonstrators to disperse, video footage of the gathering shows.

Protesters holding torches clustered on the campus in an apparent lead-up to a Saturday demonstration protesting Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Far right=anything liberals disagree with.
They were chanting “”Blood and soil” and other articles indicated they were chanting, “Jews will not replace us!”
The new mayor of St. Louis, Lyda Krewson, to placate BLM, took one down in Forest Park. Cost a pretty penny but hey, crime is still flipping out of control.
At some point, there will be a group that is willing to resort to violence to keep a statue.
I would not be associating with any racist groups, especially in a public demonstration like this. In addition to the racism, these “white pride” groups are filled with criminals, Nazis, agent provocateurs and various other unsavory characters. I would go as far as to say that virtually every prominent white racist leader in recent history has been a paid government informant, whose goal is to discredit principled liberty/independence groups. The deep state has many, many tentacles. Avoid.
They’ll replace Lee with Che. Then the left will be happy. Try to remove Che, and then see what happens.
I submit that the “alt-right” or “Ultra far right” groups that form the protests are not “right-wing” at all, but a bunch which has smothered their individual heritage, and replaced it with another unified, bound-together set of inflexible beliefs. In a word, behaving like the pro-socialists they claim to be adamantly opposed to.
A difference without a distinction. There will still be an exceptional number of bruises, contusions and bloodied noses.
The protesters demanded preserving the statues as historical reminders, such as: of Democratic Party tyranny.
The counter-protesters and the mayor are therefore racists.
There is no complement on the Left. As Dennis Prager has often noted, “To the Left, one can never be too ‘far Left’”.
“At some point, there will be a group that is willing to resort to violence to keep a statue.”
How will chanting, “Jews will not replace us!” keep a statue in place?
Exactly. “White Pride” groups are usually filled with felons and no better than Antifa, BLM, or any other LW group. As far as I’m concerned, they’re all miscreants.
I was searching for an accurate description of this group. I don’t believe your post tells me anything more than what you want to think they are. What are your sources? Are there any definitive articles on the real makeup of the group and its leaders? Or is it all biased - one way or the other?
And all in #Charlottesville should understand: nodding in agreement to purging #Lee empowers those who will come for #Jefferson next.
[And then George Mason, James Madison, Patrick Henry, George Washington...]
After decades of bashing white people in myriad ways, from “affirmative action” to the more recent “white privilege”, it is natural to expect an increased level of white identity in response. That is, if you are going to vilify and disadvantage people by categorizing them as “white”, those people are going to increasingly identify with other people in the same category. Leftist identity politics rely upon the large white population being politically fragmented and not voting on the basis of their race with the same uniformity that Blacks do. A sane white, Christian population is going to try to vote as a bloc as a means of survival.
The agitprop has already been started here at FR over this and that is all that matters.
I listened to the tape several times and I don’t believe the word is “Jews.” It sounds more like the word “you.”
As this was triggered by the University’s attempt to remove the statues of Robert E. Lee, perhaps it has something to do with that.
What say ye!!
I'm far more worried about going anywhere near a ghetto and falling victim to the knockout game. These protestors have as much right to protest as Martin Luther King or Rosa Parks.
Charlottesville was in the wrong by trying to remove Robert E. Lee's statue. Twenty years ago such a Stalinist outrage was unthinkable.
You can take this to the bank: If this trend continues, twenty years from now Jefferson's nearby Monticello will be turned into the Jefferson Slavery Holocaust Museum, and Thomas Jefferson will be mocked and villified. Take it to the bank.
Purging the monuments,statues, school and street names, is very disheartening. I don’t think it helps the reasoned arguments to keep them when people in white hoods show up. It makes our case all the more difficult to to be heard.
