After watching this video, I find myself getting angrier and angrier at both the alt-Right and the alt-Left. I never dreamed that this kind of hatred was like this in America. It sickens me. The racism on both sides is just mind-blowing here. This is not going to end well if this is not stopped. And somewhere behind all of this are communists egging people on.
VICE News embedded a reporter with the white supremacists for Unite the Right and what they caught on video is absolutely terrifying. This isn’t a movie… this crap is really happening. I’m just as horrified by the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists here as I am the communists, Black Lives Matter and Antifa. If you watch one video this week, make it this one. It will chill you right to your very core. Now I understand why things spiraled out of control in Charlottesville, Virginia the way they did.
From Entertainment Weekly:
Monday’s episode of HBO’s VICE News Tonight went behind the scenes of this weekend’s violent protests in Charlottesville, and now, the full, eye-opening 22-minute segment is available to view for free on YouTube.
The episode begins with footage of white supremacists chanting phrases like, “You will not replace us! Jews will not replace us!” and counterprotesters shouting “No Nazis! No KKK! No facist U.S.A.!” It then launches into an interview with “Unite the Right” speaker and white nationalist Christopher Cantwell.
“When Trayvon Martin case happened, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice, and all these different things happened — every single case, it’s some little black a—hole behaving like a savage and he gets himself in trouble shockingly enough,” he tells VICE reporter Elle Reeve. “Whatever problems I might have with my fellow white people, they generally are not inclined to such behavior. You gotta take that into consideration when you’re thinking about how to organize your society.”
I have heard there are only a few hundred of these white supremacists out there, but it feels like there are a lot more. I know there are an awful lot of Antifa out there and they are growing. And both of those groups are left in the dust by Black Lives Matter. As you watch this, realize that the left was just as violent as the right here. Both brought weapons and both got their violence on. The media would have you think it’s just the right, but that isn’t true. The communists on the left are as bad or worse in some respects. Hell, they’re all bad.
In the end, it was a radical on the right who took the life of a 32 year-old white woman who was protesting with Black Lives Matter. The deranged psychopath who did that owns it. But all of these people on both sides are responsible to a greater or lesser extent for going there to fight each other. The actions of these people literally make me sick to my stomach. It’s important to watch the video if for nothing else to see how people acted and reacted.
The white supremacists here are nuts. They did not help their cause at all — they empowered the left greatly here. they showed just how racist, violent and hateful they truly are. They should be designated as a terrorist group… just as Antifa and Black Lives Matter should be. I’m just disgusted by all this.
