Car speeds into protesters as Virginia governor declares state of emergency

White nationalists and counter protesters continued to clash on Saturday as Charlottesville police and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency by mid afternoon.


A Ford Mustang drove into a group of pedestrian counter protesters in the afternoon hours.

The move was reportedly triggered by one of the counter protesters hitting the Mustang with a rock causing the driver to swing around and plow into cars and pedestrians in its attempt to get away.


It was the most brutal of all the scenes in Charlottesville. Some positive and some extremely negative.

A white nationalist protest on the University of Virginia campus became violent and the left was all too quick to pin the protest on the GOP.

The hundreds of torch carrying protesters chanted slogans like “white lives matter” and got physical with counter protesters, ahead of the #UniteTheRight rally scheduled for Saturday, the Daily Progress reported.

The marchers chanted slogans like “blood and soil, a phrase tied to the Nazis, and “you will not replace us.”

Counter protesters chanted “go home Nazis” and held signs like “VA students against white supremacists.”

Protesters on both sides were hit with pepper spray by police who broke up the demonstration, declaring it an unlawful assembly.

“Everyone has a right under the First Amendment to express their opinion peaceably, so here’s mine… I am beyond disgusted by this unsanctioned and despicable display of visual intimidation on a college campus,” Democrat Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer told CNN.

Leftists on social media leaped at the opportunity to paint all conservatives and Republicans as part of this movement.

But what they ignored is the condemnation the protest received from many on the right.
