'Unite the Right' Rally in Charlottesville

A riot is currently going on in Charlottesville, Virginia, with participants chanting phrases like 'white lives matter' and other pro-white phrases. The riot first formed as a response to the Black Lives Matter movement, with many whites feeling targeted by the groups rhetoric. Trump has recently denounced the events, but things continue to heat up with one protestor even being killed.

Personally, I am beyond tired of riots like this, the hatred they spread, and the violence that occurs.

If you ask me, these riots are rather extreme, to put it lightly, but what do you expect when you have a bunch of pissed off right-wingers who feel they've been suppressed by the PC attitude in one place?

They're doing the Nazi salute and holding up the Nazi flag...that is not okay. This isn't about "being attacked by PC culture". This is actively spreading hatred. 

And hearing about that car driving into anti-racist protesters makes this even more messed up. Violence is not going to solve anything. I hope those who were injured will be okay and my condolences for the person who was killed.

...I've looked into this a bit further, and...yeaaah, this isn't okay. There's a difference between "being oppressed by PC culture" and "HEIL HITLER!".

Ladies and gentlemen, 2017. Also that former leader of the KKK said that they're "respecting Trump's orders, he said to take back the country".

Anyone who looks at this and says "violence on many sides" is not disgusted by anyone and was forced to do a press conference. Trump is a white supremacist.

Racism is pathetic, we all bleed the same blood and step on the same soil, why can't those people understand that. The US was built on top of a Native American civilization, they're just as immigrants as any other group. Spreading hatred won't solve problems, rather it turns back the clock on progress. Nazi saluting is just ridiculous, any extremism is bad and will never solve what we've achieved over the last 50 years. If the US didn't have immigrants it would fail since that's the foundation of their country. Better learn to live together and deal with reality than try to bring the past into the present.

That's really sad. Even though it was originally your land you don't get a bigger piece of the pie. I guess all what politicians care about is their pockets instead of compensating natives for what happened in the past.

Trump's slogan for 2020 (if he even manages to LAST that long, which I seriously DOUBT), should be "White People; SH**TING on every other race since 1607!" If he DIDN'T live in the White House, he would be BEYOND pathetic! :rolleyes:

I currently live a half hour away from downtown Charlottesville where this took place and use to work three minutes from there.  The phrase "this hits super close to home" can't even begin to describe how shocked this makes me feel to see this plastered all over my local news channels.  This is not the Charlottesville I know and this is not the America I know.  This whole incident is just disgusting.  Such a gross display of violence and using tactics employed by radical Islamists.  

Our failure of a president doesn't even denounce it right.  My mailman could have delivered a more thoughtful sincere speech than that scripted bullshit Trump recited declaring both sides responsible.  Trump has already shown the free world who he is no matter how many times he backtracks on Twitter or posts revised statements so I'll just say this.  One of the sides used a motor vehicle with the intent to kill and succeeded.

I moved this topic to Squidward's House because there are deaths involved and the topic became sensitive.

So there's video footage of what happened at the rally...

Warning: this spoiler has gore and mature content. Open with discretion.

...How does running over protesters count as "terrorism"? If anything it should be counted as "running over a crowd with a car". Make no mistake, this is incredibly sad, but why is it "terrorism" and not "vehicular homicide"?

I apologize, this just REALLY confuses me.

The guy used a car as a murder weapon to scare the anti-racist protesters away. That, by definition, is terrorism. It's like an Arab setting off a bomb in some city: using a deadly weapon to scare people into obeying what the perpetrators want. In this case, they wanted the protestors to go away.
