ACLU, reporters point fingers at police, McAuliffe for street warfare in Charlottesville!
In the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, which left one dead and at least 38 injured, many members of the national media were quick to blame the Unite the Right rally attendees for the outbreak of street warfare between alt-right and alt-left protesters.
But according to the ACLU and reporters covering the rally, the violence escalated due to what many believe was an intentional lack of police oversight, with the blame aimed squarely at Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
The police actually allowed us to square off against each other, one counter-protester told CNN. There were fights and the police were standing a block away the entire time. Its almost as if they wanted us to fight each other.
The ACLU also contends the passive police presence may have been intentional to allow authorities to declare an unlawful assembly and justify shutting down the rally.

Isn’t this something that happens in prison yards?
Yes, I believe that is exactly what they wanted.
Where is Jason Kessler now?
Where is Jason Kessler now?With Seth Rich.
Do you think they SRed him to keep him quiet?
Might just as well poured gasoline over the town and lit a match. Given that loudmouth mayor has been all over TV attacking Trump it is a very reasonable inference that he got the exact result he wanted. He knew the media and left would fly cover for the alt-left people.

I forgot it...
But here it is..
Makes perfect sense for those that aren't afraid of the truth.
“There were no police in most of them.”
I read somewhere that the police actually funneled the two groups into each other. Sounded too conspiratorial to me, but now I don’t know.
Oftentimes yes. But not in Florida this weekend. Every single prison in this state has been put on lockdown.
Facilitate the circumstances to create violence, then use that violence as justification to effect a course of action.
§ 18.2-422. Prohibition of wearing of masks in certain places; exceptions.
It shall be unlawful for any person over 16 years of age to, with the intent to conceal his identity, wear any mask, hood or other device whereby a substantial portion of the face is hidden or covered so as to conceal the identity of the wearer, to be or appear in any public place, or upon any private property in this Commonwealth without first having obtained from the owner or tenant thereof consent to do so in writing.
However, the provisions of this section shall not apply to persons
- (i) wearing traditional holiday costumes;
- (ii) engaged in professions, trades, employment or other activities and wearing protective masks which are deemed necessary for the physical safety of the wearer or other persons;
- (iii) engaged in any bona fide theatrical production or masquerade ball; or
- (iv) wearing a mask, hood or other device for bona fide medical reasons upon(a) the advice of a licensed physician or osteopath and carrying on his person an affidavit from the physician or osteopath specifying the medical necessity for wearing the device and the date on which the wearing of the device will no longer be necessary and providing a brief description of the device, or
(b) the declaration of a disaster or state of emergency by the Governor in response to a public health emergency where the emergency declaration expressly waives this section, defines the mask appropriate for the emergency, and provides for the duration of the waiver. The violation of any provisions of this section is a Class 6 felony.

The pity is that the folks following him are too stupid to have looked him up (well, those that aren’t flying a false flag, like he is doing).
This whole thing just STINKS - but at least President Trump is smoking out residents of the Swamp in the process.
“Where is Jason Kessler now?”
“With Seth Rich.”
The scumbag is, regrettably, still around. We might LIKE him to be with SR, but he isn’t.
I remember years ago a demonstration by Civil Rights marchers through a White area. Nothing happened.
The news media on the scene did everything to get a fight response from those watching the demonstration telling the watchers to “Make a fist! Frown! Look mad!” They got nothing.
Liberal Democrat Mayor, Black Panther deputy Mayor, Clinton machine Governor.
This has nothing to do with Kessler. These leftists, infuriated at their loss in Federal court set this up as a trap.
Only the governor or mayor could order the police stand-down. Only the governor could call the state of emergency. It was the police who renagued on plans for safe possession and access. Without these things there likely would have been few problems.
All the authorities had to do was keep Antifa/BLM separate from the permitted rally goers and the rally would have gone off peacefully. Pikeville, Kentucky managed to do this in similar circumstances.
Remember: Unite the Right brought shields, Antifa/BLM brought clubs.
Antifa/BLM are the problem. That is where conservative and Republican ire should be focused.
