UPDATE #7: Crowd-plower 100% confirmed to be ‘James Alex Fields’ of Ohio by VA police:
Video recorded at the scene of the car crash shows a 2010 gray Dodge Challenger accelerating into crowds on a pedestrian mall, sending bodies flying — and then reversing at high speed, hitting yet more people. Witnesses said the street was filled with people opposed to the white nationalists who had come to town bearing Confederate flags and anti-Semitic epithets. A 32-year-old woman was killed, according to police, who said they were investigating the crash as a criminal homicide. The driver of one of the vehicles was taken into custody and charges were pending, said Al Thomas, the Charlottesville police chief.
The Dodge Challenger is registered to 20-year-old James Alex Fields of Ohio, according to vehicle registration records reviewed by The Washington Post. Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail Superintendent Martin Kumer told The Post that a man with the same name and age was booked Saturday on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding, failure to stop for an accident involving a death, and hit and run. Kumer said Fields is currently being held without bail. Records show Fields last lived in Maumee, Ohio, about 15 miles southwest of Toledo. Below is James Alex Field’s Ohio Motor Vehicle Registration:

This is shaping up to be the most epic gathering of white nationalists since at least the 60’s if not the Third Reich.

Here someone in a frigging Dodge Challenger rams into Antifa:
I’m not sure who exactly died during the protest, but Jew mayor of Charlottesville (((Mike Singer))) is claiming at least one person is dead.
Here’s another video of the crash:

At least one person was killed and 19 others were injured Saturday when a car rammed into a group of counter-protesters during the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va. Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer tweeted that he was “heartbroken that a life has been lost here” and urged “all people of good will [to] go home.”
I am heartbroken that a life has been lost here. I urge all people of good will–go home.

Virginia Secretary of Public Safety Brian Moran told the Associated Press that the driver of the car, a man, was in custody. Moran did not provide the driver’s name.Matt Korbon, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student, told the Associated Press several hundred counter-protesters were marching when “suddenly there was just this tire screeching sound.” A silver sedan smashed into another car, then backed up, barreling through “a sea of people.” The impact hurled people into the air. Those left standing scattered, screaming and running for safety in different directions.
I’m pretty sure it’s a coupe, not a sedan, dummy.
Sucks though, the Challenger really is a beautiful car.
The crash occurred approximately two hours after clashes in which hundreds of people scramed, chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles and unleashed chemical sprays on each other ahead of the scheduled noon demonstration. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency, which city officials said allowed them to request additional resources to respond to the clashes expected between hundreds of white supremacists and those opposing them.
Before the car crash, local authorities said that just one person had been arrested and eight people had been treated for injuries. Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler had planned what he called a “pro-white” rally to protest Charlottesville’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a city park. Oren Segal, who directs the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, said multiple white power groups had gathered in Charlottesville, including members of neo-Nazi organizations, racist skinhead groups and Ku Klux Klan factions.
I’ve watched tons of video of this event. I would say KKK and skinheads made up less than 2% of the people there.
Isn’t it interesting how much the ADL and SPLC just fucking love to mention skinheads and the KKK? I’m not going to counter-signal, but this alone should be a good enough reason to completely disassociate white nationalism from these two groups.
They’re even shutting down the University of Virginia (founded by a slave-owning white man by the way) over this:
UVA is cancelling all scheduled events and programming today effective at noon. The medical center remains open. https://t.co/JSSif6MrFr

“We anticipated this event being the largest white supremacist gathering in over a decade,” Segal said. “Unfortunately, it appears to have become the most violent as well.” The white nationalist organizations Vanguard America and Identity Evropa; the Southern nationalist League of the South; the National Socialist Movement; the Traditionalist Workers Party; and the Fraternal Order of Alt Knights also were on hand, he said, along with several groups with a smaller presence. Kessler said this week that the rally is partly about the removal of Confederate symbols but also about free speech and “advocating for white people.” “This is about an anti-white climate within the Western world and the need for white people to have advocacy like other groups do,” he said in an interview.
And ALL of that violence is coming from Marxists, Leftists, BLM, Antifa, and their Jew masters.
Clashes also broke out Friday night, when hundreds of white nationalists marched through the University of Virginia campus carrying torches. A university spokesman said one person was arrested and several people were injured. The school announced on Saturday that it would be canceling all scheduled events and programming today. They said the medical center would be open.
And of course Pence, Paul Ryan, Trump, and his idiot wife have to come out against “hate”.
I wonder who they’re talking about?
Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence. #Charlottesville

— Vice President Pence (@VP) August 12, 2017
We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2017
The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant. Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry.
— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) August 12, 2017
And guess who had to weigh in? Oy Vey!
March & rally in Charlottesville against everything the flag stands for. President Trump must condemn in strongest terms immediately.
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) August 12, 2017
And check this out:
The team said it “vehemently” disagrees with and is not associated with the event.” A Michigan-based white nationalist group called the Detroit Right Wings uses the Red Wings’ logo. Signer said he was disappointed that the white nationalists had come to his town and blamed President Donald Trump for inflaming racial prejudices during his campaign last year. “I’m not going to make any bones about it. I place the blame for a lot of what you’re seeing in American today right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the president.”
Saturday’s violence was the latest confrontation in Charlottesville since the city voted earlier this year to remove the Lee statue. In May, a torch-wielding group that included prominent white nationalist Richard Spencer gathered around the statue for a nighttime protest, and in July, about 50 members of a North Carolina-based KKK group traveled there for a rally, where they were met by hundreds of counter-protesters. The city has also renamed Lee Park, where the statue stands, and Jackson Park, named after Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. They are now called Emancipation Park and Justice Park, respectively. A group called the Monument Fund filed a lawsuit arguing that removing the statue would violate a state law governing war memorials. A judge has agreed to a temporary injunction that blocks the city from removing the statue for six months.
Wait, you mean to tell me white people are getting pissed off that your tearing down their monuments, renaming all of their parks and streets, and that it’s the White House’s fault?
Trump and his crew coming out and condemning “hate” is the part that really drives me nuts. The Alt-Right needs to openly criticize this guy at a minimum. In reality, all white nationalists and people in the Alt-Right need to just flat-out disavow Trump (at least until he does something worthwhile).
And by the way, his grovelling didn’t win the approval of the (((blue check marks))) on Twitter, either:
And one final note to the Jews and Antifa:
You will not replace us.
The Jews will not replace us.
You will not replace us!
(further updates on Charlottesville will be posted to the front page of the site and in this thread)
