Washington, D.C., Braces for 'Unite the Right 2' White Nationalist Rally

It’s bad and you should feel bad’ NPR blasted for interviewing white nationalist Jason Kessler

In an interview later Friday on "Anderson Cooper 360", Bro said she thinks it's time to "take the focus off Heather, as Heather would want us to do".

Last year's protests in Charlottesville on August 11 saw hundreds of neo-Nazi sympathizers, accompanied by rifle-carrying men, chanting white nationalist and anti-Jewish slogans while wielding flaming torches - scenes reminiscent of racist rallies held before the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 60s.

Students say they're disgusted with the school because it didn't waive medical feels for last year's rally victims.

Demonstrators carry banners in front of the Rotunda on the campus of the University of Virginia.

"I just think that we all very aware of what type of person now occupies the White House and the terrorism that has faced the nation because - partly because he's there", Mayor Nikuyah Walker said on CNN Friday.

It was a departure from his comments a year ago in which he said "very fine people" were among the white supremacists in Charlottesville, prompting a political firestorm that lasted for days and culminated in an infamous press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower in NY.

"Our role is to make sure we have a First Amendment event that goes on without any types of violence or destruction of property", Newsham said at a Monday news conference, according to CNN affiliate WTOP. White nationalists arrived in Charlottesville to demonstrate against the removal of a statue of Confederate icon Robert E. Lee. There were no immediate reports of arrests on campus.

Graham, who spent considerable time at Bedminster over the past week, added: "It is how you react to him. Who do you serve?"


A group of more than 200 protesters then marched to another part of the University of Virginia's campus, where many in the crowd shouted at officers in riot gear who had formed a line.

Many local residents also made a point of coming downtown to mark the anniversary. The rest of the evening remained quiet.

Concrete barriers and metal fences were put up and police were searching bags at checkpoints.

"It's nice that they're here to protect us", said Lara Mitchell, 66, a sales associate at Ten Thousand Villages, a shop that sells artwork, jewelry, and other items.

Several events are scheduled in Charlottesville to observe what happened past year and promote racial healing. "It looked like a war zone a year ago compared to what it is today".

The Charlottesville protests, which became a symbol of racial tensions in the United States, took place on August 12, when white supremacists marched in the city to denounce the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, a Confederate general who fought in the American Civil War.

Sgt. James Dingeldein of the Park Police said his agency, the Washington police and the Park Service had met with Kessler and leaders of counterprotest groups to explain to them what is permissible on the grounds of the park. The following day, a much larger gathering of white nationalists near a downtown park erupted into violence. Crowds of white supremacists and counterprotesters clashed before a vehicle plowed into a crowd, killing 32-year-old counterprotester Heather Heyer.

Two state police personnel - Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates - died in a helicopter crash responding to the scene.
