Why did the carnage in Charlottesville happen? Because we lie to ourselves

Charlottesville riots Driver hits several people

The Charlottesville violence is the latest clash between far-rightists, some of whom have claimed allegiance to Trump, and the president's opponents since his January inauguration.

In addition to those injured in the vehicle incident, the Charlottesville Police Department said 15 were wounded in other violence related to the far-right march.

Police stand watch near the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in the center of Emancipation Park the day after the Unite the Right rally devolved into violence August 13, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The mayor of Charlottesville suggested Sunday that President Trump has created an environment in which white supremacists feel welcome to publicly promote their views.

"My heart is broken, but I am forever proud of her", Heyer's childhood friend Felicia Correa, who spoke on behalf of the victim's mother, told the Daily News. Virginia State Police said injuries ranged from life-threatening to minor.

McAuliffe told a press conference: "I have a message for all the white supremacists, and the Nazis who came into Charlottesville today".

White House defends Trump's response to Virginia violence
He went on to criticise the influence of Steve Bannon and the Breitbart website in the Trump administration. He added that it's not serving the President's interests to still have that wing around.

Four people have been arrested, including James Fields, a 20-year-old white man from OH who is being held in jail on suspicion of crashing the vehicle.

One was killed and dozens were injured amid what is believed to be the largest group of white nationalists to come together in a decade to protest the city's decision to remove a Confederate monument. "It's been going on for a long time in our country".

He said that if he was still working in the White House, he would not have recommended Trump make the statement he did.

Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency, police in riot gear ordered people out of the streets, and helicopters circled overhead, including the one that later crashed. They clashed with counterprotesters, culminating on Saturday with a man ramming a auto through the counterprotesters.

She said she was cat-sitting for her son, who she thought was attending a peaceful "All Bright" rally, instead of "Alt-Right".

White nationalists, including the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis movement leaders, were clashing with counter-protesters at the rally hours before the collision in downtown Charlottesville.
