BREAKING: Car Plows Into Crowd of Counter-Protesters At Pro-Trump Nazi Rally, Multiple Injuries [VIDEO]

The New York Daily News reports:

A car plowed into a crowd of protesters gathered for a “pro-white” rally Saturday in Charlottesville, Va. injuring several people. Video of the terrifying moment show several people being tossed into the air as the silver Dodge Charger mowed into the crowd and rear ended two other vehicles.

Dozens of people were in the street as the car, which a witness said had no license plates on Twitter, sped toward them, the video shows. Tensions in the Southern city had already been high as protesters and opponents clashed early ahead of a massive gathering of white nationalists, neo-Confederates and alt-right activists.

      What’s DSA?

      • Lazycrockett

        Democratic Socialist of America.

        • JCF

          FWIW, I was a member (mailing list, essentially) back in the 80s. At that time, they were just a group trying to push the Democrats towards Western European-style Socialism.

          • Lazycrockett

            Back in the day with Harrington and Ehrenriech.

          • Hank

            What do they stand for today???

          • Lazycrockett

            http://www.dsausa.org/about_dsa

            At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end. As we are unlikely to see an immediate end to capitalism tomorrow, DSA fights for reforms today that will weaken the power of corporations and increase the power of working people. For example, we support reforms that:

            decrease the influence of money in politics

            empower ordinary people in workplaces and the economy

            restructure gender and cultural relationships to be more equitable.

            Thanks for the link!

            NP.

          • JCF

            I couldn’t tell you. I’m guessing they went for Bernie in the primaries? I don’t know how much they ID as Democrats now (which they emphatically did, in the 80s. I wouldn’t have joined a third party during the time of Reagan!).

          • Lazycrockett

            DSA still strongly associates with the DNC.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Chances of a pedestrian living through a direct hit at 45 mph is roughly 5 – 10%.

      That’s not a reaction to protest. It’s an attempt to murder. It’s Nazi terrorism. There are no words.

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        why the fuck were they allowing unauthorized vehicles in there anyway? One car loaded with fertilizer couldve blown up the whole block. Of course our radical nazis dont have suicide pacts, yet

        • Lizard

          They care about their precious genes too much. They won’t kill themselves.

        • Oscarlating Wildely

          My guess: cross traffic streets. Even bigger marches have them (NYC *just* stopped them this year for Pride) This was not on the march route but a side street. Can’t be fully controlled.

      • boatboy_srq

        But BLM protesters once shouted unkind things at some white person so BSDI.

  • We cannot “come together” with people hell bent on extermination of others.

    • Buford

      Agreed, and it angers me to no end when someone suggests that refusing to tolerate this hate is akin to censoring an opinion with which you disagree.

      ‘Fuck you, faggot!’ and the like are not arguments or stances that deserve protection.

  • Nic Peterson

    But they said they came in peace. Organizers and leaders now need to be held accountable.

  • JCF

    Brian Levin’s analysis is TERRIFIC right now, on MSNBC.

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    OMG!

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Why the hell isn’t MSNBC and CNN talking about this!!! It’s so infuriating. They are not talking about the car that did this and took off. WTF! It’s like it’s intentional to hide the facts.

    • Paul

      To a Trumpanzee:

      If they talk about it then it’s FAKE NEWS!

      If they don’t talk about it then they know it was really a Soros paid lefty muslim ISIS supporter and therefore FAKE NEWS!

  • Country seems to be heading toward civil war…

    • Phil2u

      Damn. More statues to have to take down later.

      • UrsusArctos

        So much for all the fascists bitching about how Mitch Landrieu handled the same issue in New Orleans. The city tried removing them as a normal business thing and the contractor got death threats. So the people removing the monuments had to wear flack jackets/helments and work in the dead of night under armed protection. Yeah, it’s the left we need to fear. /snark

    • OdieDenCO

      the front line will bisect every city

    • safari

      Bannon’s goal.

    • Jeffg166

      I had read a decade ago some Russian predicting we’d have a civil war. At the time I laughed.

      • Gustav2

        They lit the fuse

  • Porkie

    So this won’t be “terrorism” then ?

    • Jeffg166

      Not if it was a nazi.

    • margaretpoa

      “Accident”? The idiot on CNN is calling it an “accident”????

      • safari

        MSNBC is hedging their language, too.

        • margaretpoa

          They wouldn’t have “hedged” if it had been the white Supremacists being mowed down I’ll bet!

          • Gustav2

            “Allegedly” will be flying around until there is a legal judgement.

          • margaretpoa

            Hmph! Defending the media is why they are the way they are. I repeat, had a black man run into the white Nazis, there would be no hedging. Pretending that wouldn’t be so is living in denial of what we know about the mainstream media.

          • very much This.

        • SoCalGal20

          MSNBC is acting like they aren’t even aware of video footage of the act.

          • Lazycrockett

            MSNBC thinks it may be to violent to show.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            Looking above, it is horrible to watch. The impact and bodies flying is horrific.

            And wait for the gun nuts to claim a reason for more gun rights. You know its coming.

      • Gustav2

        They are trying not to get in legal trouble.

      • vorpal 😼

        How do you “accidentally” mow down a group of people in the street while driving a car with tinted windows and no license plates?

        • margaretpoa

          Exactly what I’ve been saying! The driver went there specifically to run (liberal) people down.

    • IAMBOWLINGGREEN

      This was not an accident. These fascists don’t just want liberals unhappy. They want us dead.

    • Bluto

      ACCIDENT? Fuck you CNN!

      • Lizard

        Did they say that on their tv coverage? They don’t in the written story.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        Oddly, it may be a legal term. Until intent is proven (I know) they assume accident. Total bullshit, I completely agree.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • margaretpoa

    Fuck. That driver went there to kill people and he’s not been caught?

    The Twittler in Chief is going to have to say something now.

  • Hanwi

    And instead of helping the injured the youth of today would rather film……smh.

    • Lizard

      1. You have no idea how old the people filming are.
      2. Maybe they have no medical training and are staying out of the way of people who can actually do some good. Untrained hands might do more damage to trauma injuries.

      • Hanwi

        If he’s over 30 he should be embarrassed to be using a selfie stick. I’ve been first on the scene at gun shootings, heart attacks and arterial cuts, with little to no medical training I did what I could to help. What I did not do was pull out my fucking camera.

        • Beagle

          At the very least, use that phone to call 911.

  • Do Something Nice

    When this happens in other countries there is a crackdown on Muslims.

    I think we need to crackdown on Trump supporters.

    • Lazycrockett

      The terrorist in this country are mostly white and male.

      • Do Something Nice

        We need a temporary no-fly ban on Trump supporters.

        • SoCalGal20

          Can we ban them?

          • MonochromeMouse

    • Nowhereman

      They are emboldened by the Trump administration. One of the first things that the Justice dept. did was to stop tracking white wing hate groups. In fact, the White House is crawling with white christian nationalists. But just watch–they will charge the victims with blocking traffic.

  • I.Smith

    It took Trump Seconds to denounce the Vehicle attacks in London and France, how long till he does the same for this terrorist attack.

    • Jeffg166

      They’ll have to wake him up again from his nap.

      • JCF

        Or golf balls don’t hit themselves.

        All this happening, and I’m STILL most terrified he’s on the phone w Manchin now, agreeing to put him in the Cabinet, in order to replace him in the Senate, to kill ObamaCare. [I sort of feel bad this is my biggest worry today, but that’s where I’m at—on Medicaid.]

      • I.Smith

        NAP he is sitting down Masturbating to what is going on.

    • infmom

      He can’t spell “confederate” and Bannon’s at the rally so there’s nobody to spell it for him.

      • Robincho

        He tried once, and it came out “covfefe.” Sound it out, DrΓΌmpfi, just sound it out, and then proceed slowly…

    • Bluto

      Because those incidents fit his narrative of evil emigrants. This however is his base, he has to tread lightly. But this won’t be a terrorist, just a lone wolf.

    • Harveyrabbit

      He’s now preoccupied with finding a way to use “his” nukes so this kind of stuff is way on the back shelf for him. Besides he’s clearly more than just leaning to be on the side of the Nazis anyway.

  • Leo

    I know that exact intersection. Friend that lives several blocks away.

    There will be security footage. Multiple. If this was deliberate they will catch the perpetrator, license plate aside.

    • safari

      There’s already a ton of video on Twitter.

    • SoCalGal20

      It was deliberate. You can see how the person rear ended the second car and then backed up to try to get out. Not sure how far that car got.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        Exactly. Response to an insult or frustration, plowed down people, backed up, tried to flee.

        It seems that it’s clear: intentional with intent to kill.

    • margaretpoa

      “If”? Have you SEEN it yet? Plowing into the back of a car at at least 30 mph in a crowded street while not displaying license plates?
      Are you serious?

      • Leo

        I didn’t know it didn’t have security plates. Thanks for sharing. I get the passion but calm down please.

        • margaretpoa

          This is not the time to be calm. It is never a time to behave rashly but there is a time and place for passion. Don’t presume to tell me to calm down.

      • DoctorDJ

        That mustang’s front end was pretty mangled. It won’t get far.

      So that asshole actually managed to escape then?

      • Leo

        AGAIN, security footage.

        you know the state police is already on this.

        • SoCalGal20

          Yeah well, call me skeptical.

        • margaretpoa

          Oh yeah, that MIGHT have been “accidental”….
          “Calm down” my ass!

        I’m sure Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III will get right on that.

          Evil Keebler Elf: Vee vill have those counter protesters arrested immediately. Did you see the damage they caused to that car’s bumper!? Outrageous!!

      • AJ Drew

        Apparently, yes. Saw witnesses saying driver got away; I thought they meant on foot!

      • I.Smith

        Of course do you actually expect the Police to be there to protect Minorities or Anti-Fascists.

    • Leo

      Well there you go. This will be used in court.

      • margaretpoa

        Except he got away clean.

    • IAMBOWLINGGREEN

      Exact same methods of terrorism as ISIS. With the same desire to see Americans dead. There is no ‘uniting’ with terrorists.

    • Octavio

      Yup. That’s a silver Dodge Charger. NOT a Mustang.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • infmom

    Those guys are so brave. Take the license plates off the car. What happened to having the courage of your convictions, Nazi twats?

    • Paul

      Yeah amusing the number of brave patriots on Twitter who hide being a fake name and photo.

  • I choo-choo-choose you

    Wait a minute…weren’t Republicans trying to make it lawful to hit protesters a while back, while simultaneously trying to make it illegal to protest?

    They own this shit and they know it.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Why yes they were!

    • Oh’behr in Minnesota

      They were even trying to pass the BS in Minnesota about lawful to hit protesters. I’m glad it didn’t even pass the Republican majority legislature.

  • Gigi

    Dummy Duke doesn’t seem to realize that there were lots of brown and black people who also voted for Trump

      I wouldn’t say there were “lots”, it actually was mostly white supremacists…let them own the carnage.

    • margaretpoa

      Trump didn’t send that. Whoever it is who is designated to keep his twitter fingers off his phone, did.

    • Cuberly

      His entire candidacy was dedicated to exploit imaginary white fright and fear of a changing world.

  • Leo

    RIGHT ON CUE CNN showing the Twitter video

    Edit: Stelter saying producers may not show video, too graphic

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      And also right on cue, they’ll use words like “allegedly” and “accident” instead of “clearly attempted homicide” or “terrorism”

      • Tomcat

        They are honest news site so they have to report ONLY what is actually known. If you want fake news go over to Fox.

        • Jean-Marc in Canada

          While I understand your position, even you have to admit, it strains credulity at times, especially when they show a video proving the intent.

  • Lazycrockett

    MSNBC is gonna roll the video.

  • Adonisus

    This is pure speculation, but this might have been revenge for the utter thrashing the Nazis got earlier in the day. Before the Nazi gaggle were declared an ‘unlawful assembly’, they had gotten their asses thoroughly kicked by Antifa, with dozens of nazis walking away bleeding and with black eyes and bruises. Richard ‘punching bag’ Spencer himself was actually arrested. I think this might be a turning point.

    • BobSF_94117

      they had gotten their asses thoroughly kicked by Antifa, with dozens of
      nazis walking away bleeding and with black eyes and bruises

      You think that’s a good thing?

      • matrem

        Yes. The only good Nazi is a punched Nazi.

        • BobSF_94117

          Just to be clear, you’re OK with violence, even when it possibly contributes to revenge and retribution that results in death.

          • matrem

            My grandfather punched Nazis in WW2 and I fully intend to maintain this tradition. If you want to coddle genocidal racists, go for it.

      • Adonisus

        Nazis walking away bruised and bleeding. Yes, very much so.

        • BobSF_94117

          You speculate that those beatings probably led to revenge that got someone killed, and yet you continue to endorse them. Think about that.

  • Cuberly

    Did they catch the driver? They said they have the car.

    • Lizard

      Would have been a lot of conspicuous damage on the car. They probably ditched it.

      • Cuberly

        One talking-head said the car had no plates.

      • Rebecca Gardner
        • Cuberly

          Did the driver get away?

          • Lumpy Gaga

            So far, yes.

      • margaretpoa

        Look at the video below. There is a lot of conspicuous damage but he got away clean.

        • Lizard

          I know that. I’m just saying considering what they were planning to do and that they took the plates off, any vaguely competent criminal would have had another car waiting to take off in.

          I want the bastard(s) caught as much as you do.

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            Theres always the VIN number but the perp may have jacked the car somehow

          • margaretpoa

            Since there is no water leaking, I suspect that they took measures to reinforce the radiator area too. It wouldn’t take much, just a few stiffeners behind the front cowling.

          • Friday

            Kind of asuming the radiator ruptured inthe first place, and that that’s where the car hit something solid. Could all just be pushed back, considering modern crash afety standrds.

          • margaretpoa

            M’eh. Meaningless speculation without the car and we don’t have that because the cops let them get away.

          • Friday

            Had the impression they got away onfoot somehow.

    Looking at the set waiting for Drumpf, people are on stage waiting who no doubt are there as props, with a podium and desk. So, this looks like some pre-planned propaganda staged signing.

  • Jerry Kott

    For the criminals, this heinous act has bragging rights. It is not unreasonable to be leery of how Law Enforcement treats this.

    Visibility IS really just awful in these new model Challengers !

  • Snownova

    I’m confused, did the car run into the pro-trump people or into the anti-trump people?

    • Tomcat

      Anti Trump.

      • Snownova

        Thanks, that it was I expected.

    Trump calls driver of suspect terrorist car to congratulate him on being famous now.

    How much more of this crap are we going to put up with?

    • matrem

      We don’t vote. We get the country we deserve.

  • ByronK

    So, Mr. Trump, can you say “domestic terrorism”?

    • Nowhereman

      No, no he can’t. He will probably threaten to invade Mexico over this. That is if he can drag himself away from the golf course.

    This reminds me of Kent State. The difference is that it wasn’t the cops or national guard attacking.

  • Time to call in the Guard.

    There were no “counter-protesters.” There were nazis, and there were protesters. The nazi rally could hardly be called a protest.

  • Helen Damnationβ„’

    Oh yes, about that dude that ran over the
    counter-protestors a little while ago? One dead, many others injured!
    Don’t worry about him though, the Republicans in the North Carolina
    House of Representatives passed a bill back in April to protect him and
    people like him.

    This was obviously intentional, the license plate(s) were removed, shows intent which means this is attempted murder. Why weren’t people trying to break the windows out on the car? It was sudden and you didn’t have a whole lot of time, but someone could have tried to break a window to get a look at the murderer. This is why such dark window tint should be outlawed in every state.

    Here in New York state in order to pass your annual vehicle inspection you windows can’t block out more than 30% of light. If your tint is darker you must remove it before you can pass the inspection. No inspection here means you loose your registration and possible license suspension. If this perp didn’t have limo tint someone may have been able to see them.

    My heart and thoughts go out to the victims of this horrid crime. I am asking the universe to help this murderer be found quickly.

    Mueller should add aiding accomplice to murder to Current Occupant’s list of crimes.

    I’m sick and tired of this shit.

    America , any one in that country with 2 function brain cells can see the Chaos and disorder that this administration wants to rain down on you Enough Already

    It’s amazing to read comments at even HuffPost where some are defending the driver. “People shouldn’t have been walking in the street!” I’m sure these people consider themselves “christians” too.

  • Steve Teeter

    NY Times says the driver was arrested but not identified.

  • GanymedeRenard

    THIS. IS. HORRIBLE. WTF???
