@deadly_nightshade: Haven't heard or seen reports about gunfire either though. I take it you're a Charlottsville native?


Yeah.

But remember, the alt-right is a movement of peace and they should be given a platform and respected.

Article linkage?

Not on CNN, and a helicopter going down would certainly get their attention. Looking at the google news aggregate.

 

Found one: http://wset.com/news...charlottesville No indication of what caused it though.

Screenshot from the Daily Stormer. Referencing Trump's "Many Sides" speech.

I edited my previous post. It doesn't seem anything directly related to the protests themselves, as far as people know anyway.

 

edit: @lefer: Might want to spoiler that due to the image size.... Though really, no surprise there.

I'm got my information from the Fire/Rescue dispatch and from people who came back from the call.
Both of the pilots are dead and it has been reported that another person died from the car attack.

Well the media and the left have asked for white nationalists and nazies rise so they now will reap what they sow.

At least US can count on the WH to do what is right:
 
POTUS, FLOTUS, VPOTUS call for unity and condemn violence

Trump finally acknowledges the death of victims of...... the helicopter crash. Wut, no acknowledgement of the woman who died in the car incident?

 

edit: Article updated as he mentioned it a half hour later, kind of seems like an afterthought when done via tweet.

If he mentions the girl, he will be expected to mention every protester that gets killed.

Well, you delivered as expected. Hopefully someone demolishes the statue of Lee, after all this, I'd get a chuckle out of that.

Well, if X deaths are connected, it's not exactly taxing to mention all X, is it ?

Only the ones who were killed by a deliberate terrorist or terrorist-like attack.

It's also horrendously accurate.

 

https://www.cato.org...olent-extremism

 

Of all recored violent extremist incidents that resulted in death since September 12, 2001, far right wing violent extremist groups were responsible for 73 percent. Your friendly neighbourhood bigot is far more likely to be a radicalized terrorist than your local muslim refugee.
