What we saw yesterday was the result of leftist provocation of a group of alt-right White Americans exercising their right to free speech. The end result was the murder of three individuals and wounding of nineteen or more. The individual responsible for this travesty is no doubt a right wing extremist; similar to a suicide bomber. However, see below, there was a provocation for this heinous act. Our hearts go out to the families of those murdered and injured in cold blood.
The purpose of the protest was the decision by the Charlottesville political elite to remove a stature of (please click here for Wikipedia before you make a judgement) General Robert E. Lee (an honorable man). The federal government has opened a civil rights investigation into the vehicular rampage that killed one woman and injured 19 other people during Saturday’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va.
President Trump admonished the day’s tragic events, saying in a press conference: ‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, violence, on many sides… The hate and division must stop, and must stop right now.’
