White Supremacists Hold Another Rally In Charlottesville And People Are Asking Where’s The Outrage?

“Take a knee and half the country is offended. Another torch rally in Charlottesville this weekend and crickets.”

Published October 8, 2017

The wounds of Charlottesville still haven’t healed for some people, but that doesn’t seem to matter to white supremacists like Richard Spencer.

  1. The Alt-Right leader and a small group of his tiki-torch-carrying hate mongers decided to descend on the Virginia city again Saturday night (October 7) to protest in front of the city’s Robert E. Lee statue.

    Chanting “you will not replace us” and “we will be back,” the impromptu mob showed up two months after August’s bloody “Unite the Right” rally, which incited violence and ended up taking the life of anti-protester Heather Heyer.

  2. As mentioned, Spencer was on foot during the rally and called it a “great success” in a selfie video he posted to Twitter. He also titled the event, disturbingly, "Charlotesville 3.0."

  3. Not everyone, actually very few, was happy about the hate group’s show of protest. Charlottesville’s mayor came out in strong opposition to the white nationalist march and called it “despicable.”

    “Another despicable visit by neo-Nazi cowards,” Mayor Mike Signer tweeted. “You’re not welcome here! Go home! Meantime we’re looking at all our legal options. Stay tuned.”

  4. Social media also had their input on what went down.

    Contradictions were a hot topic, pointing out that the same people who are mad at NFL players for kneeling were silent when it comes to this newest instance of white supremacist protests. These protesters, literally, not figuratively, want to honor and preserve the Confederacy, a collapsed traitor nation that tried to dismantle America.
