Re: Charlottesville, US . State of emergency declare.

Basically the South is almost a different country. In historic time lapse ,1865 is not that long ago .They were still hanging negros with mob law in the 1930s.

To try to remove a statue of one of their greatest hero,s was bound to not have a peaceful end .
They already tried to remove the confederate battle flag a while ago .

I don't think they ever accepted defeat.Lee, was said to say after surrender ,if he had known how the South were treated after the surrender ,he would have fought on.And of course England was on the side of the Confederate states.

Re: Charlottesville, US . State of emergency declare.

I watched a Ross Kemp in Texas the other night it was on catchup , he monitore the differen white supremacist and black affirmation movements.
It was chilling , the worst part for me was an interview with a Grand Vizier Wizard , heavily armed and surrounded by his acolytes , in which he intonded that blacks like Obama were not human beeins ( sic ) , but animals that needed to be wiped out.

He stated he had an army , in the tens of thousands , including doctors , Architects and officers , all highly educated people , pledged to carry out the war against black animals.

He said he was encouraged by his hero Trump ,and knew that he would lead the righteous people.

Kemp was shocked and stood up to the lunatic , i was deeply impressed by his stoicism and courage , yes the southern USA is a very different place , but i wonder really how much different from the rest of the country.

At least one person has been killed and many injured by a vehicle that crashed into a crowd of counter demonstrators who were marching against the Unite the Right " march


The "Unite the Right" a group that who want to cede from the United States and set up a group of white states were protesting the decision to take down a statue Confederate general.

They Invited to the rally other White supremacists groups KKK the Nazis (who are legal in the US) David Duke and Richard Spencer of the Alt Right They have been emboldened by the election of Donald Trump (with his shady alt right sympathetic aides Gorka and Bannon ) and were seen marching making the Sieg Heil salute and calling Hiel Trump (seen in the video below) and racist chants "Jew will not replace us"

David Duke: "We’re going to fulfill the promises of Trump, take our country back." Protesters carried Trump posters.

Re: Charlottesville, US . State of emergency declare.

Charlottesville: Trump under fire after failing to denounce white supremacists

Even the right wing Republican Old gurad cannot stomcah this

President laments ‘hatred, bigotry and violence from many sides’ but senior Republicans and Democrats demand condemnation of far-right extremists


https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...nce-many-sides

I wonder what it wold take for Trump to name and condemn his supporters in his criticism , damning with faint reproof ?

The specific damning of these people will not happen, as it is they who make up a large proportion of his base support.
