Charlottesville white nationalist rally blamed for 3 deaths

New meme that is circulating around the internet...weird...becoming a black conservative just became damn near impossible.  Lines are being drawn and it should disturb everyone.  Instead of political beliefs things are breaking along racial lines.  Just awesome. Worse? We know Trump lacks the capacity to calm the nation.  Wish he did but he doesn't.

A 32-year-old woman was killed Saturday and 19 others were injured, five of them critically, when a car rammed into a group of counter-protesters during the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va.

A helicopter crash that killed the pilot and a passenger later in the afternoon outside the university town also was linked to the rally by State Police, though officials did not elaborate on how the crash was connected.

At a late afternoon news conference, Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said that 35 people had been injured in various confrontations during the rally and made a point of saying that none of those involved his officers. Thomas also said that the car crash was being treated as an act of "criminal homicide."

The chaos boiled over at what is believed to be the largest group of white nationalists to come together in a decade: the governor declared a state of emergency, police dressed in riot gear ordered people out and helicopters circled overhead. The group had gathered to protest plans to remove a statue of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

I can't wait to hear the false equivalence that many will utter on this topic.  I can't wait to hear so called reasonable people give excuse after excuse for this idiotic behavior.

If you can't call balls and strikes in an even handed manner then maybe you need to either avoid the debate or head over to sites that will spout the same nonsense.

Either way 3 people are dead and why?  Because some fucking statues were gonna be removed that honored men long dead that represent a vile and despicable period in American history.

For THAT CAUSE people marched and killed yesterday.

Only in America.
