Four men have been arrested and charged with inciting riots at last year's deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Benjamin Daley, Michael Miselis, Thomas Gillen and Cole White are part of the southern California-based Rise Above Movement, described by prosecutors as a white supremacist group.
The complaint said the men had previously attended rallies in Berkeley and Huntington Beach, where they are said to have attacked protesters.
The left has systematically pursued and threatened people and their families in their private lives.
Lenny Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, whose son Noah was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, said in the letter published in The Guardian that their family has "endured online, telephone, and in-person harassment, abuse, and death threats" from those who believe, in part because of content seen on Facebook, that the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax. For years, they said, they have been living in hiding because their home address and videos of their house have continued to be posted online.
Hogg addressed the accusations head-on, saying in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, "I'm not a crisis actor.... I'm someone who had to witness this and live through this, and I continue to be having to do that."
The young activist's mother, who works as an elementary school teacher, told The Washington Post that her family has received multiple death threats. "I'm under so much stress," Rebecca Boldrick said. "I'm angry and exhausted. Angry, exhausted and extremely proud."
Braden Matejka survived a bullet to the head in the Las Vegas massacre. Then, the death threats started coming.
“You are a lying piece of # and I hope someone truly shoots you in the head,” a commenter wrote to Matejka on Facebook, one week after a gunman killed 58 people and injured hundreds more. “Your soul is disgusting and dark! You will pay for the consequences!” said another. A Facebook meme quickly spread with a photo of him after the shooting, captioned: “I’m a lying #!”
Brennan Gilmore, a counter-protester at the “Unite the Right” rally who had captured footage of the car attack that killed Heather Heyer, filed the lawsuit on Tuesday against Jones, Jim Hoft of the pro-Trump conspiracy site Gateway Pundit, and five others. After Gilmore posted video of the attack last August and spoke to the media, he quickly became the subject of viral conspiracy narratives falsely claiming he was a CIA or “deep state” agent who helped orchestrate the violence as part of a government operation.
Christine Blasey Ford still cannot move back home due to the “unending” death threats she’s received since she came forward with her allegations that Brett Kavanaugh assaulted her as a teenager, according to one of her attorneys.
Two Rivers officials have good reason to worry. One of the protesters, Maryland resident Robert Weiler Jr., has a disturbing rap sheet: In 2006, at 26 years old, he pled guilty to plotting to bomb a College Park, Maryland, abortion clinic and shoot the doctors there. Following a tip from Weiler’s parents, police questioned Weiler, who admitted to possessing a homemade pipe bomb and a firearm he’d stolen from a friend. Weiler served five years in prison for those crimes, and was arrested again in 2014 for disorderly conduct and assaulting a police officer outside the same abortion clinic he’d planned to attack.

gee, for some reason, I kind of think that if the protesters didn't break the laws sometimes...
we'd still be under british rule.
ya know, the boston tea party.
all those union strikes that resulted in better working conditions??
little rosa parks refusing to sit in the back of the bus... or stand, whichever it was.
no legislator was harmed being chased by a few women!!
matter of fact, those women's marches, along with the latest demonstration that was predominately women.... were pretty mild and non-violent. at least I haven't heard of anyone seriously injured, any major destruction.
And, I am pretty sure no legislature was threatened with physical violence!!

Another word these vermin hijacked is 'liberal'.
Please stop referring to these illiberal authoritarian dirtbags as liberal. They are not and they don't speak for us.

Also, just because we want everyone to have a chance at a good life, it doesn't mean we are rabid dogs...

Democrat mobs are a Republican fiction intended to rile up the Republican base. They do not exist. But if you are looking for what is dividing the country, look no further than Team Trump.

so let's see here....
a bunch of pro-lifers gather in front of planned parenthood clinics and shout horrible things to the women who dare enter their doors... heck, they've even harassed the people at schools and playgrounds, chased little children down the sidewalk as they walked home from school....
but that is not a mob. and they weren't being authoritarian dirtbags when they told that school that they would keep harassing them till the school pick up their cause and fought to not have the planned parenthood that was being built across the street from their school.
and oh no, that angry bunch of predominately white guys that descended into charlottesville from the four corners of the US and beyond touting their guns and torches and left one dead and many seriously injured wasn't a mob, they were just using their free speech! and they weren't being authoritarian dirtbags when they raised hell in the city over a decision that the city made over a statue in their city park... a decision that they had every right and authority to make... and as they left, they promised to return, hoping that the pressure of having the chaos descend on the city again would detour them from carrying out their decision and not removing that statue..
And of course, it's all oh so wrong that a group of people started a go fund me page with the expressed intent of raising funds for Collin's opponent if she accepted Kav for the supreme court....
but it's okay for a right wing pack full of dark money to shell out over a million dollars to air a special thank you to air for voting for him!! add that to a few others strands of dark money and she well over the measly three million that those little people brought in!!
and, oh no, that tow truck driver was perfectly within his rights to hear God's voice tell him to leave the disabled lady at the side of the road in her disabled car and go home...
but for a restaurant to refuse service to little Sarah??? oh, the horror!!!
for a small group of people to heckle a republican representative in a restaurant.... oh, the horror!!!
and just look at all those angry women who were in the halls of congress, trapping those high ranking men, and a few women in elevators, chasing them down the halls, demanding to be listened to!! outside on the streets across the nation really, sitting in the lap of lady liberty and pounding on the doors of the supreme court!! ya, that's the most dangerous mob of all!!! but, how many were seriously injured?? how many were killed?? or, is the reason why all of a sudden they are dangerous mobs that our elected officials are finally getting the heat that they felt wasn't worth addressing when we were directing the heat at each other and they felt shielded and protected from it?
but, no, they are dangerous, a threat to national security even... "LOCK HER UP!!! LOCK HER UP!!! LOCK THEM ALL UP!!!"
due process and innocent till proven guilty is only relevant when it comes to those on our side!
it blows my mind that yous can't see just how yous are just as hypocritical, just as authoritarian, just as much dirtbags, as you are claiming the liberals of being!!!!
if they don't want the people of this nation chasing them through the halls of congress, outside of the white house shouting, in the streets... then may I suggest that they convince trump to stay home for awhile instead of having rallies just about everyday of the week and adding fuel to a fire that is so close to burning out of control!!!
