More on Charlottesville

Maybe it’s just because I’m tired of being a bigoted, racist, trans-Islam-homophobe who hates my own sex, but frankly, Charlottesville has pissed me off. And the more things I see from people “on the ground”, the angrier I get, because what I’m seeing and hearing from people who were there, the more the mainstream media is just plain wrong.

Why were the cops just standing by?
Why was help refused to people who asked for it?
Why was a black man standing with a known conservative (conservative, not alt-right) group threatened with arrest when, blinded by pepper spray a person from antifa sprayed in his face, he asked for assistance?

From a friend:

I’m sad that anyone on either side is being roped in to this divisive hate. Antifa doesn’t actually want to stop white supremacist they want to draw blood and create chaos in the guise of revolution. Leftist labeling everyone right leaning as racist and suppressing free speech is proof of their shallow cause.
Alt right groups are just as happy to bait and cause conflict and certainly there are many racist among them, but not everyone protesting the removal of historical monuments are racist. I certainly don’t live a hate filled lifestyle and I’m completely against erasing our history because it “hurts” people’s feelings. Neither groups cultist agendas hold the best interest of our country in their ideologies. I wish news media would stop giving them cookies for their actions. Even negative publicity encourages and recruits.

This post will hopefully be updated as further videos and photos from actual protesters are released.
