Inside the Charlottesville march with the neo-Nazis

Posted By on Sat, Aug 19, 2017 at 7:56 AM

Vice has compiled a powerful documentary inside the white supremacist march that turned violent in Charlottesville last weekend.

Equal blame on both sides? Take a look and see if you think those protesting hatred and bigotry are equivalent to the neo-Nazis. The Guardian summarizes:

On Tuesday, Donald Trump blamed “both sides” – the far-right marchers and those there to protest them – for the violence, adding that there were “very fine people” in both camps. There is little evidence of that in the Vice film, however, which shows hundreds of right-wing ralliers marching with torches and chanting: “You will not replace us.”

Those chants swiftly make way for shouts of “Jews will not replace us”, and many of the right-wing protagonists continue to use racists slurs for Jewish people and African Americans throughout the video.

Cantwell, a white nationalist who streams his own talk radio show and is described by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as “an unapologetic fascist”, was due to be a speaker at the rally.

“I’m trying to make myself more capable of violence. I’m here to spread ideas, talk in the hopes that somebody will come along and do that. Somebody like Donald Trump who does not give his daughter to a Jew,” Cantwell says in the Vice film.
About Confederate heritage and Robert E. Lee? Maybe not.
