    James Alex Fields Jr. was found guilty on Friday of killing Heather Heyer when he plowed his car into a group of counterprotesters last year at a "Unite the Right" rally that quickly turned violent in Charlottesville, Virginia. Fields, 21, was convicted on all counts, including first-degree murder in connection to Heyer's death and five counts of aggravated malicious wounding, three counts of malicious wounding and one hit and run count for injuring dozens of others with his vehicle.

    Three months before the rally, Fields posted to his Instagram account an image depicting a car slamming into a group of people with overlaid text that says: “You have the right to protest, but I’m late for work.” Antony, the prosecutor, said the image gives the jury a “glimpse into his mind” the moment Fields saw the crowd of marching protesters as they approached Charlottesville’s downtown pedestrian mall. “He was presented with an opportunity,” she said. “He seized it to make his Instagram post a reality.”

    Don’t condemn white nationalists, Veterans Affairs’ diversity chief was told after Charlottesville, emails show A top White House appointee at the Department of Veterans Affairs sought to silence the agency’s chief diversity officer, who — in the aftermath of last year’s racially charged violence in Charlottesville — pushed for a forceful condemnation that was at odds with President Trump’s response, newly disclosed emails show. The tense exchange between Georgia Coffey, a nationally recognized expert in workplace diversity and race relations, and John Ullyot, who remains VA’s chief communications official, occurred during a low point in Trump’s presidency: when he blamed...

    Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka after he blasted her for making a comparison between the migrant caravan and Jews fleeing Nazi Germany. “You were forced out of the Trump Admin for saying white supremacists were 'not the problem' days before Neo-Nazis in Charlottesville killed 3 people,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted at Gorka. “Pretty sure we’re on the right side of history if you’re my opposition.” “This is not about atrocity. It’s about how we get there,” she added.

    I have always regarded men who make a big deal out of supporting feminist causes as potential exploiters and phonies. When Harvey Weinstein, with his track record of vocal and financial support for pro-abortion groups was accused of extreme abuse of actresses, I was not in the least surprised. While some people are attracted to activism or charity out of pure motives, I have seen enough corruption and hypocrisy to make me suspicious of the motives of every male, especially a showboater who proclaims his love of women’s causes. So, it comes as only a slight surprise to learn that...

    Democratic activists, Internet pranksters, rumor-mongers, and the Washington Post come together to hit the Republican candidate. ____________ In late August, a man named Mike Stark posted a plea on the popular Democratic website DailyKos.com. He was a political prankster, Stark explained, and he’d been pulling pranks on conservatives for quite a while. He had had some success slipping past Rush Limbaugh’s call screeners. He wore a monkey suit to approach George Allen and ask, “Have you ever used the word n——-?” And once, during an episode of Hannity & Colmes, he held a sign up behind Sean Hannity that said...

    A banner appeared at the bottom of Fox News stating hundreds of White Nationalists marched through the UVA campus chanting racists slogans. Is this true? My gut feeling is there were not more than 30-40 white nationalists at the initial rally. I base this opinion by some videos I saw of the leaders of the white nationalists meeting with their followers. The rest, IMHO, were drawn into the rally as historic monument preservationalists, etc. Also, the rally was organized by an Obama supporter, and it is still unclear to me who financed the Tiki torches, and the freshly creased Nazi...

    Franklin Graham and other evangelists are praising the godly change in a former neo-Nazi and KKK grand dragon who was recently baptized by a black pastor in Florida. Ken Parker, who just a year ago was joining other white supremacists at the so-called Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was recently profiled in a NBC News report that examined the radical change in the man's life. Parker explained his feelings of wanting to protect his race while he was a part of the Ku Klux Klan. But his attitude began to change after he met Pastor William McKinnon III...

    With the mainstream media focusing on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots of last year, many news organizations are basically blaming President Trump for stoking the hatred and racial tension that led to the violence in that small college town, because of his coarse rhetoric on immigration and the NFL player protests. I will concede that Trump is not without blame in contributing to some of the coarseness of our society, but it’s hard to deny the fact that Trump has been consistent his whole, adult life. Trump has always been brash, arrogant, self-centered, abrasive in his language, and...

    heart attack, yup. It was said by her own mother, during a live TV broadcast and there wasn’t shit the news media could do about it. It’s also exactly at that moment the media hurriedly buried it. Now, I’m no conspiracy nut either, but I do recognize it when someone’s trying to manipulate a story to push an agenda. If you try to look up the cause of death, the only thing that’ll come up will refer to the original report from the scene that day, which was just the opinion of whoever showed up and filled it out, but...

    On Saturday evening, NBC News correspondent Cal Perry and his camera crew were assaulted by a group of violent Antifa members in Charlottesville, VA. Antifa claimed they were there to promote safety during the one year anniversary of Heather Heyer’s death, but video footage shows this to be the opposite. “Protester,” NBC reporter Perry tweeted, “very aggressive with media.” Protesters very aggressive with media. #Charlottesville pic.twitter.com/CSYNyvBbeG — Cal Perry (@CalNBC) August 12, 2018 Roughly twenty minutes later, Perry posted footage of a far-left activist attacking his camera saying, “Fu**, snitch A**, B**ch F**k you.” “Fu** you, snitch ass news bitch....

    The mainstream fake-news media was as silent as a mouse after Antifa thugs showed up in full gear, including anger, at the 1 year anniversary of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA, last Saturday, and did whet they’re known to do best: they attacked innocent people, and harassed journalists, including an NBC news crew. Moreover, they beat up a police officer for absolutely no reason and destroyed property. Even if zero members of the so called “far right” attended the rally in Charlottesville, approximately 200 Antifa operatives showed up. In good leftist domestic terrorist tradition, the mainstream media...

    On the one-year anniversary of the violence in Charlottesville and the killing of Heather Heyer, an anti-Nazi protester allegedly mowed down by a white nationalist, President Trump reminded us he is incapable of treating white nationalism as a singular evil — or of offending his white-grievance-obsessed base. Trump unleashed a furious backlash a year ago when he engaged in jaw-dropping moral equivalence, saying there were “very fine people, on both sides” (meaning both Nazi sympathizers and anti-Nazi protesters) and later claiming there was “blame on both sides.” Saturday, he gave the same wink to white grievance mongers, insisting on Twitter,...

    A passing thunderstorm forced the far-right demonstrators to break down their rally stage in Lafayette Park near the White House prematurely, but as police escorted them from the area, reports of Antifa resistance emerged. Some 200 anti-fascists, many of them wearing black masks, confronted police about a half-mile from the White House as officers shoved them back, The Associated Press reported.

    On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville protests, white supremacists and radical leftists known as Antifa descended on the Virginia town once more to commit more violence. Late Saturday night, NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew were in the thick of it as Antifa members ganged up on them and attacked. The next morning, NBC’s Sunday Today ignored the attack and suggested the media was simply “heckled” by their assaulters. On Twitter, Perry was documenting the protesters as they marched through the streets of college town when they started to get “very aggressive with the media” and...
