White terrorists are rallying again in Charlottesville

Without much of a singular word from any political figure or Trump as of this writing.   Over the weekend, another protest at the hands of white supremacists (also white terrorists; domestic terrorists, and most recently lone terror wolves)   took place in almost the exact same place where their first one turned deadly. The  desperate battle cr for white supremacy was seen as  reasoning  for massive arrests of about 40 or so people at least according to one lawmaker. One lawmaker in  Charlottesville feels "When they're making such cries while holding torches attempting to be intimidating about it.  Whether they realize it or not, they're breaking  the law" officials reportedly said after learning of the demonstration led by  domestic terrorist Richard Spencer.

Donald Trump sort of responds to Charlottesville riots

Donald Trump has bowed to criticism, and,  for good reason. The United States President took to the airwaves Monday morning to discuss the troubling attack on a protester who died in Charlottesville over the weekend. Initially, Trump, refused to acknowledge that protesters in Virginia were actually committing acts of terrorism -- but rather "blamed all sides" rather than those responsible: white supremacists. "Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs," he told reporters on Monday. "They're repugnant" against everything that we as Americans believe in. "We condemn this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence," he said. "It has no place in America." https://twitter.com/CNN/status/897140457427173376

Trump supporters prove they’re literal domestic terrorists

Yesterday's violent pro-white nationalist rally in Charlottesville was just another example.  As news of the riots continued to spread last night,  we, rounded up some of the most terrifying pictures from the rally (mind you, these are all over the fact that a statue is being removed). Early this morning, a formal state of emergency was declared in the state after white nationalists were seen in pictures with literal objects on fire aiming them at those who may or may not have been African American or of color.   Virginia's governor has ordered the White Nationalists to "go home" or face action by VA officials. Meanwhile, we're still trying to figure out how the Black Lives Matter movement was worse than what's happening in Charlottesville right now.

Portland suspect Jeremy Christian “What I did Was Patriotism”

A white man who stabbed innocent people  because they were Muslim is the topic of the week. Jeremy Christian, the Portland man who stabbed one person and fatally murdered two others,  was in court Wednesday. During that court hearing, Christian, was heard reportedly telling the courtroom "You call it terrorism, I call it patriotism". According to local reports,  two of the victims died hours after the attack. Christian has since been charged with double-murder charges; and those related to a hate crime charge.  Another victim, Micah Fletcher, 21,   was nearly fatally stabbed in the neck trying to defend the two young women. Court docs show that Christian  was heard during the attack telling himself that he wanted to "cut off their heads" because they were Muslim.
