I figured a lot of us have seen this and I kind of wanted to have a place to talk about it. I'm honestly so upset about this but not at all surprised. There was a violent "rally", using that term loosely, in Charlottesville, Virginia the other day. One woman was slaughtered by Alex Fields, when he attempted to murder/maim a crowd of counter protesters, by intentionally driving into the crowd, backing up and driving into said crowd again. At least 19 others were injured.

I was saddened to see this on the news yesterday and really think its about time USA did something to stop this sort of hate.  All the images and vids where horrible but one thing (apart from the car incident) that stood out for me was a gentleman in his 50s standing there shouting whilst having an M16 strapped to his chest.  I could understand if he was part of the police but he was a protester, stupid just stupid.

 

I hope that these type of rally's are stopped in the future.

Talk about White Privilege. The fact that all of these monsters have escaped with their lives, doesn't even surprise me at all. If it was a rally of black people wielding torches (let alone GUNS), I don't even want to know what would happen. I hope Charlottesville can come together to condemn this rally and grow stronger as a community. I hope this opens a dialogue about the state of things in the USA right now. I hope it opens some eyes.

The fact that it's legal for them to do this is just gross.

Throwing up a 'heil hitler' in Europe will get you fined a lot of times if not more depending on circumstances.

 

That they actually beat a Black man in a parking garage and beat him with poles.... fuck these people.

They are scum. 

 

What is truly hilarious though is them trying to negate the fact that they are racists... *_*

I've been out of the loop because of school so I only read about it today. I only saw two pictures and that was enough to make me feel nauseous - and I can look at some really disgusting shit without batting an eye. This is very, very sad.

Assembling to protest and freedom of speech is a constitutionally protected right. These hallowed American principals are worthless if they are thrown out any time we disagree with the said protesters. 

 

Murdering and lynching people on the other hand is indeed illegal.

We have a company in Namibia that I go to visit from time to time and in swakopmund (a town) they celebrate Hitlers birthday and openly going around wearing Nazi clothing.  it is a very difficult Town to go visit seeing all that going on, natural to say even though it is a town in Africa there are very few Black people walking around.

Just a warning, the part with car driving into people is really sad.

I've seen this a couple times since my friends have been talking about it and showing the news to me lately, and every time it never fails to absolutely sicken me.

 

Like Coops said, I'm not very surprised that this happened, but it's absolutely horrible that it did and I feel awful.

As far as I know hate speech isn't considered protected speech. "Free Speech" only means the government can't ship you off to Siberia, it doesn't mean that everyone else has to put up with it.

Hate speech is actually constitutionally protected, as long as it does not directly incite violence. The US doesn't have a specific law against hate speech. To be precise, free speech means the government cannot arrest you for saying something that is protected under free speech, but there are other societal and non-governmental actions associated with hate speech.
