As if last week wasn't enough for the City of Charlottesville Virginia.

Now they had to face the music at a City Council Meeting where the "Public" gave the City a piece of their mind !!

People complaining of the way things were "handled" during the protesting.

Lots of yelling shouting and loud swearing.


Chaos at Charlottesville City Council meeting on violent rally

Anger boiled over at the first Charlottesville City Council meeting since a white nationalist rally in the city descended into violent chaos, with some residents screaming and cursing at councilors Monday night and calling for their resignations.

Hundreds of people packed the council's chambers, CBS Charlottesville affiliate WCAV-TV reported. Many were there very upset about how the August 12 rally was handled and blamed several of the councilors, the station says.

Mayor Mike Signer was interrupted by shouting several times in the first few minutes of the meeting, The Daily Progress reported. As tensions escalated, the meeting was halted. Live video showed protesters standing on a dais with a sign that said, "Blood on your hands."

After talking with members of the crowd, Councilor Wes Bellamy said the council would drop its agenda and focus on the crowd's concerns, the newspaper reported.

I dont like that our past enemies and human rights violators like Nazi and KKK haven't been forcibly disbanded yet.

I'm for free speech, but while waiving the nazi flag? KKK? They need to be added to the terrorist list, they have done nothing positive and so are only instigators of violence, along with ANTIFA.

I'm having an internal struggle with leaving any of the aforementioned mobs to "express" or "Protest" with the right to have rallies.
Maybe I'm missing something?

As far as the protest farse in Charlottesville, the blame lies right on the city for having stand down orders.

The irony. I remember Ron Paul supporters being treated as such during the election fraud of '12 for doing far less. This was well deserved this time around.

Yea, that was my thought when I caught this earlier.

"Boy, sure didn't take them very long to wade in to that crowd and go hands on."

Hopefully you recognize the slippery slope that road leads to. Who makes the moral decisions on which groups are "good" and which groups are "bad"?

Sure there are several groups everyone can unilaterally denounce, but it never just ends there.

Ironic, isnt it.

But.......the stand down order was all part of the plan all along. This thing was so astro-turfed its pathetic. Reminds me of Ferguson, with CNN on site for a week waiting for the paid for demonstration to happen. Took a while for the buses to arrive.

It appears a certain segment of the populace doesn't care about law & order, the police or anyone not supporting their political views.
Yet when the police "let them down" they go bonkers.
Why?
Because the police weren't there when they had an unscheduled march without a permit where people got hurt.

Who decides?
The SPLC of course.

I think only the white nationalists or what ever they are called now had the permit...

No one else had a permit from what I understand...

Yea I don't know why this is still a thing.

The city issued a total of three permits. One to Unite the Right, and two to counterprotest groups. The city rescinded Kessler's permit, and did not rescind the two permits that were issued to the counterprotest groups.

That's literally the entire basis for Kessler's lawsuit against the city: the city council voted to stop his rally by revoking his permit but did not vote to stop the counterprotesters' rally by revoking their permits. It's in his freaking lawsuit.

For a site that's supposed to be about denying ignorance, it's mind-boggling to see the same folks pushing the same disproven narrative thread after thread.

Thanks for the clarity....To be completely honest I could really care less which one of these losers had a permit. I tend not to give much attention to cry baby, SJW who use any excuse they can to pick up a stick and attack another...

I think we should load them all in a coliseum and let then fight it out till the death...

Would be far more entertaining than their current shtick is, at least.

As far as I can tell from my armchair, it seems the left is stirring up the neo-Nazis and the KKK. Possibly even funding them or helping them organize to have these rallies/ marches. Everyone knows that they are the side who wants to get rid of the constitution, freedom of speech, guns.

Socialism/communism is their end game.

We know for sure that they are helping/ funding ANTIFA and black lives matter. Oddly enough we also know that the democrats are the ones who installed the statues during the Jim Crow laws era.


My question for everybody, how many of you think that they are supporting both sides of this argument?

Seems like the best strategy they could use to get what they want. Which I think, is a re-writing or a complete rehash of the constitution.

I can see why the left thinks the Alt-right is nothing but Nazis and Neo-Confederates. Just look at this poster complete with Heer Eagles - it looks just like a Nazi propaganda poster. They want to think this is somehow representative of the right, conservatives and those who voted for Trump. These cretins are few and far between and essentially powerless. Along with the organizer Kessler's past with Occupy I have to think the whole Charlottesville fiasco really was a set up. After all, the best way to discredit the opposition is to create imagery that shows them in their worst light.



Confederate flags and troops in ranks with bayonets and set on a Nazi propaganda poster backdrop. Hell, it even looks like the Jeff Davis statue is giving the Nazi salute. This had no appeal to Conservatives, only to the very fringe that had to come from all over the country just to get a few hundred bodies.

I think it's pretty easy to differentiate between good and bad groups.

What is the core message of the KKK and neo-Nazi groups? Kill everyone we don't like.

What is the core message of BLM? Stop shooting us.

What is the core message of Antifa? Don't be a fascist.

I'm not denying that all of these groups have gone overboard in their actions at time. However, what would happen if BLM got their way? We would stop having cops shooting little kids with a toy gun.

What would happen if Antifa got their way? There would be no more fascists.

What would happen if the KKK or neo-Nazis got their way? The eradication of all non-white people in the world.

Maybe it's just me but the difference between these groups seems pretty basic.
