Police are blocking off streets and mobilizing hundreds of officers for the anniversary of a deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, alarming activists who plan to rally against the hatred and bloodshed that shocked the nation last summer. --SNIP-- Lisa Woolfork, a University of Virginia professor and Black Lives Matter Charlottesville organizer, said police are mounting a "huge, overwhelming show of force to compensate for last year's inaction."

"Last year, I was afraid of the Nazis. This year, I'm afraid of the police," Woolfork said. "This is not making anyone that I know feel safe."

Does this count at white privilege? Chicago is a killing field but a massive police force is assembled to protect mostly white people BUT BLM is terrified. I'm confused (:

These so-called “right” rallies would be peaceful if the anarchists would stay at home

“Woolfork said. “This is not making anyone that I know feel safe.”...……….

Simple solution: BLM can stay home. IF its a legally permitted event, stay away to live another day.

If I was the Unite the Right guys I wouldn’t show. Leave them standing there holding their junk.

McAwful orchestrated that whole thing last year. He declared a state of emergency, pulled the permit and then funneled the two groups together to force violence. He has blood on his hands from that girl’s death.

He is as slimy as the Clintons, his mentors.

We shall see what Northam does.

I am thinking about going to the DC rally. I will report back.

I’m pretty sure that both sides of this whole thing is a staged event to enhance the position of the ultra-left. You need a fast moving scoreboard to even keep track of the players. I really smell a huge publicity incident in the making.

Ginned up by the media who won’t let anyone forget the ‘anniversary’. It’s their baby, they own it.

Insofar as the organizer of the so-called “right” is in fact an Obamunist and former Occupy Wall Street [see: https://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3678450/posts] -— there is good reason to believe just that.

What he’s saying is:

Last year we antifa and blm knew that we could be as violent as we wanted to be and the police would not interfere. This year it seems like they’re not going to let us do that and we are quite unhappy about it all.

“shouting racist and anti-Semitic slogans”

So, the protesters a year ago were Democratics?

Well.... It is highly unlikely that McAwful will be marching in the streets showing his solidarity with the concerned “people.” /dripping sarc
