Gov. Terry McAuliffe had a strong message to those who participated in deadly violence on Saturday in Charlottesville: "Go home".

Governor Andrew Cuomo of NY made an official statement earlier today, saying that there are not "many sides" to the violence that unfolded in Charlottesville and rebuking Trump for his response.

"You came here today to hurt people, and you did hurt people", the governor said.

Asked for clarification, a White House official later said: "The President was condemning hatred, bigotry and violence from all sources and all sides".

Garcetti released a statement condemning the violence later Saturday afternoon.

The statement continued: "The National Action Network calls on President Trump to address the causes of these events, denounce the white supremacists at the very heart of this conflict, and start working towards peace".


Throughout the day, cable news networks played shocking and even chilling images of neo-Nazis and white nationalists marching in the streets of Charlottesville as they were protesting plans to remove a statute of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. It is not everyday political rhetoric to scream epithets at people who don't look like you or worship like you.

The reality for Trump is that his presidency helped white nationalists gain national attention, with groups drafting off his insurgent candidacy by tying themselves to the President and everything he stood for.

It was not immediately clear whether the male driver of the vehicle acted intentionally, but Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said at a Saturday evening press conference that charges were pending and the situation was being treated "as a criminal homicide". We are stronger than you. You will not succeed.

- "We reject the racism and violence of white nationalists like the ones acting out in Charlottesville".

The violence began on Friday night, when hundreds of white marchers with blazing torches appeared at the campus of the University of Virginia in a display that critics said was reminiscent of a Ku Klux Klan rally. "But we can not forget that this is also a symptom of the rhetoric the Trump Administration has supported since the Presidential Election and into the White House, promoting violence, attacking civil rights, and allowing organizations backed by bigots to thrive", the NAN statement reads. Today, in 2017, we are instead seeing a cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance march down the lawns of the architect of our Bill of Rights. "There are not "many sides" here, just right and wrong".

I find it interesting (and frustrating) that most news coverage on this event is calling it either a protest, rally or march rather than what it should have been called: a riot.
