As those of you watching the live coverage have surely seen, today’s Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia has already erupted in violent clashes between white supremacists and counter-protesters, many of whom are allied with the Antifa movement.
Before the official noon start of the rally, hundreds of self-proclaimed Nazis lined up behind what appears to be only a handful of police officers to chant, “Fuck you, faggots” at counter-protesters on the other side of the barricades.
Also on the scene are dozens of so-called Christian militia members, most of whom are brandishing assault rifles. If nobody gets murdered today, it will be a miracle.
