Richard Spencer was in Virginia on Saturday, fighting to preserve white heritage. Let’s piece the story together. First, some anti-white politics.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) — A large group of protesters gathered at Lee Park on Saturday night to stand against the decision to remove Confederate monuments from Charlottesville.
Our media partners at the Daily Progress report the protesters were carrying torches, even chanting “You will not replace us,” “Russia is our friend,” and “Blood and soil.”
After about 10 minutes, Charlottesville police arrived at the scene following an altercation between protesters.
In a statement, Charlottesville mayor Mike Signer said, “This event involving torches at night in Lee Park was either profoundly ignorant or was designed to instill fear in our minority populations in a way that hearkens back to the days of the KKK.”
Signer went on to say, “Either way, as mayor of this city, I want everyone to know this: We reject this intimidation.” “We are a welcoming city, but such intolerance is not welcome here.”
The Daily Progress reports the crowd quickly dispersed once police arrived.
The protest comes ahead of Monday’s Charlottesville City Council meeting, where councilors are expected to decide the remaining recommendations from the Blue Ribbon Commission.
Mayor Mike Signor can kiss my white ass. He has no right to stop anyone from having or expressing a political opinion. He’s garbage to me.
Let’s turn now to why people are legitimately protesting.
Tensions were high in Charlottesville’s Jackson Park Saturday afternoon as protesters against the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue took on supporters.
“No reason why we can’t celebrate the history that has brought us to the glorious future that we are emboldened in now,” protester Orry Von Dize said
Charlottesville’s Jackson park filled with protesters determined to protect what they call their “white heritage.”
“We’re not white supremacists. We are simply just white people that love our heritage, our culture, our European identity,” Von Dize said.
Hundreds voiced their opposition to Charlottesville City Council’s vote to remove the Lee statue in Lee Park. They don’t want the Jackson monument to be next.
“I’m here to take part in this great celebration of our heritage and to say ‘no’ to the city of Charlottesville. You’re not going to tear down our statue and you’re not going to replace us,” Richard Spencer said.
Self-identified “alt-right” member Richard Spencer said the protesters are peaceful.
“Nobody here is committing violence. This is a peaceful demonstration. We’re talking about who we are and what we care about,” Spencer said.
“I feel as though their saying the same thing over and over again and they’re not here for conversation,” statue-removal supporter Andrea Rowland said.
Arguments and a scuffle broke out quickly in Jackson Park once people opposed to the Confederate heritage supporters arrived.
Police soon got involved.
Both sides left frustrated by the end of it all and are unsure of what comes next.
“It’s an expression of force. It’s an expression of occupying a space,” Spencer said.
While police did get involved toward the end of the protest, no arrests were made.
Good work, once again by Richard Spencer. At least this reporter had the decency to not call him a Nazi. This is an example of much better reporting than we usually get.
Spencer’s explanation of why we protest will fall like seeds into the brains of many of our youth, where they will grow and bear good fruit.
We’re going to lose many battles, but in the end we’re going to come out ahead.
