Skip to comments.Charlottesville whitewash appears to be underway

There is already plenty of evidence that the clash between violent left wingers and right wingers in Charlottesville was eminently preventable, and may even have been a set-up. The media/left cabal took advantage of the violence to smear President Trump and conservatives as Nazis, so it would be awfully embarrassing if it turned out that responsibility for the violence lay with police following orders from above to stand down and channel the two groups into a clash. Governor Terry McAuliffe, purportedly a presidential aspirant, has a lot to answer for.

There were union-goon communists versus BLM/Antifa/Occupy communists.
How did you guys miss the whole thing?
They’re both left-wing groups, just one is more extreme than the other.
it is disturbing that a Democrat — a Barack Obama appointee — has been appointed to run the inquiry.
Jason was only one person. There was a march Fri night with torches neo-Nazis galore on Sat.
“it is disturbing that a Democrat a Barack Obama appointee has been appointed to run the inquiry.”
We know how this is going turn out.
Heaphy endorsed Tom Perez for DNC chair, and has been an enthusiastic supporter of civil asset forfeiture, and claims to have been concerned over Jeff Sessionss ideology:
My fear, Heaphy said, is that the new department is not as mindful of those resource constraints and seems to want to pursue a more ideological agenda, and I think that could be both ineffective and costly.
The signs are already terrible. This memo from Charlottesvilles city manager fails ro mention antifa or even Terry McAuliffe.
True enough. Why no violence on Friday night?
From the article: “A former U.S. attorney will lead an independent review of Charlottesville’s response to three white nationalist rallies.......”
“The city announced Friday that Tim Heaphy, former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Virginia, will evaluate how the city prepared for and responded to a May torch-light rally.......”
So there ya go it’s BS from start to finish. The Democrats are trying to cover their butts with bullstool again. I think the Democrats have a fetish for BS.
Let’s see... white nationalists, as in KKK—inspired by the Democrats—marched and were met by Antifa fascists, communists—inspired by Democrats... and it’s Trump’s fault.
So you’re saying those are TEA party people?
Well heck yeah. Trump supporters/republicans=nazis. It’s new math. Or something.
This list of things Democrats should answer for is very long.
And they won’t be answering for anything is my best guess.
Republicans aren’t interested.
The permitted group was with a guy named Kessler. What is their pedigree?? Also there were individuals there with no connections, who just didn’t want the stature removed. This was all peaceful.
The mayor then closed the park and ordered them off by having the police enforce the closing.
The Antifa and BLM, and others were waiting for them with clubs as they left the park.
It certainly seemed like a trap was sprung on the peaceful demonstrators in the park. The mayor had no interest in peace.
Remember there is a chain of command when it comes to the Police Dept.Police respond to supervisors orders, be they sergeants, lieutenants, or captains. The head of the police department is the chief, responsible for hiring, firing,.discipline, pay raises and overseeing those officers ordered to take leave w/without pay pending investigations.
The Mayor is the boss of the police chief. The Mayor hires, fires and disciplines the Chief of Police. IOW, the Mayor (Vice or Deputy Mayor in Mayors absence) instructs the Chief of Police on policy. It is the Mayor who instructs the Chief of Police to stand down during AntiFa related events.
Now, the only reason AntiFa is so bold and dangerous is because they hide their identity behind a mask or clothing while assaulting innocent bystanders and vandalize property without being identified for subsequent arrest.
To undermine and destroy AntiFa or any violent group concealing their identity you have to get rid of the masks. We have anti-mask laws and need to demand that our mayors enforce anti-mask laws or suffer legal consequences.
Remember D.C., Berkeley, Charlottesville and Boston all have anti-mask laws were not enforced because they have democrat mayors.
However, in Auburn, Alabama, Republican Mayor Bill Ham Jr. DID enforce the anti-mask law when Richard Spencer had his rally. Any member of AntiFa who violated this law were to be arrested and their identities would be revealed. When AntiFa members realized this, they left and there were no riots, no vandalism despite some AntiFa removing their masks and protesting. Those AntiFa who assaulted opponents were arrested and identified.
To stop AntiFa we need to recognize that Mayors are elected officials and weeks before the next AntiFa scheduled event familiarize locals with anti-mask laws and demand that mayor enforce the anti-mask law. Police officers will require any AntiFa member showing up with a mask or identity blocking garment must be unmasked or arrested. If the mayor refuses to comply with the anti-mask law, apply pressure with threats of lawsuits which ultimately cost the city millions. Political suicide for any mayor.
The following states have Anti-Mask Laws.
Sessions understands the value of unmasking AntiFa:
Post #18 " How to Effectively Stop Antifa "
by enforcing and following the various (state) laws which already exist
requiring "un-masking of perpetrators" !
H/T to wtd !
Nothing happened that night. Only when the govt communist showed up the next day.
