White nationalist figurehead Richard Spencer led a crowd of three-dozen supporters to the statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday night, local NBC reporter Matt Telham reported on Twitter.

Police stood by as Spencer and his ilk chanted, “We will be back!” They soon vacated the park, Telham tweeted.

Afterwards, Spencer took to Twitter to call the rally a “success,” and say that the alt-right was “badly mistreated” in August.

Watch footage of the rally below.

    These fools like Spencer are definitely looking for a major confrontation. They’d love to start a new Civil War and give the south a shot at winning. They were wrong 160 years ago and they’re wrong today. The south can talk and talk about them rising up again but the north will beat them down again and again

    • Wrily says:

      We should have let them go 160 years ago. They would have soon begged to come back and we wouldn’t have this current problem.

    I wonder how many of our dead WW II soldiers and even those who survived would take this?
    And Trump puppet Pence and his “walk out” over the knee during anthem bit was a planned cover to avoid having to deal with this overt anti-American “protest”.

    think of this if there was a black supremacist president in the white house and with that came a country full of black supremacist cops that hated white people for their color . and then these black cops started shooting killing and murdering white people (and having it on video mind you ) and the black supremacist Pres. just made pathological liar promises to protect the innocent white people being killed and murdered and did nothing to help those white people then what . would the picture be clear and would every one get the point then of kneeling for the national Anthem ? would it be different if the shoe was on the other foot (the other color foot ) ?

    Oooh… look the hate-mongering cockroaches are back. Surprise, surprise.

    Notice they can only “march” unannounced in secret, at night, and in small numbers.
    Guess how cowardly and weak they look…

    a day-care center with 3 ,4 and 5 year olds would have more intelligence then the DUMP 45 MORON white house his CULT KLAN AND STAFF has today /// Vice President Pence and his wife walked out of Lucas Oil Stadium, saying in part in a statement that he would “not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our national anthem.” That decision, which President Trump tweeted came at his direction, put the spotlight squarely on Reid, who, like many players, is seeking to clarify his message /// so VP you take orders from the REX T . calls a MORON . that’s a good little DUMPSTER DONNY brain washed female dog . ok VP DENCE let me get this right so I can understand it so you “not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our national anthem.” I can understand that to a point . till your a hypocrite with your Hippocratic loyalty oath to the known MORON POTUS . lets go over this a bit .((“not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our national anthem )) I got that part now while being on this tell me B-DOG VP DENSE where’s the line of disrespect an disrespecting ? would this maybe include with “not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our national anthem the country and the USA and all it and we stand for ? interesting VP DENSE B-DOG OR B-BOY both ID is more then enough respect that you deserve . ok DENSE it did say you said and or meant soldiers right ? ill take that as a yes B-BOY let me ask you was John McCain a soldier ? again B-DOG I got this one also yes . and JOHNNY being a soldier captured would it be respectful to say this soldier that was a POW for 5 years wouldn’t be a hero because he was captured ? and HYPPER B-DOG is your form of a hero one that dodge the draft 5 times like his fitting name is now (MORON ) ?

  13. says:

    OK DENSE B-DOG AND OR B-BOY you talk about (“not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our national anthem.”) this im sure you mean for the whole country and every thing that has to do with the USA ! and with this (((“not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our national anthem.))so what it seems your saying is dignify and respectful for the country’s MORON Pres. to be insulting so many other country’s leaders and opening his BIG MORON MOUTH and talking smack and BULLSHIfT ABOUT EVERY ONE IN THE WORLD ? do you feel your dignity and your respect it warranted for a MORON that starts trouble with every one he can just so the addicted addict junky MORON can get his fix for his junky shakes with the only cure he wants (ATTENTION ) and is it also warranted for your dignity and respectful to say nothing while your MORON boss is playing his PATHOLOGICAL LYING GAME with his stats being about 5 lies a day ? is that the kind of dignity and respect you feel you as VP DENSE of the USA should have ? for some reason MR B-BOY VP DENSE I don’t feel the founding fathers had it planed that way . VP DENSE do the country you represent a big favor and go talk to Mueller tell him what you know and the BULLSHIfTING the MORON DUMP 45 is doing . even better push the MORONS B/F Russia’s PUTTHEAD and make him mad enough that he will give to Mueller what he needs to save the country and the world from the MORON DUMP 45 . im sure when PUTTHEAD give what he has we all will be saved . let Russia give to Mueller what I think PUTTHEAD has . its something big nothing compared to little hands and 2 grains of sand for the coward DUMP 45 when Mueller gets those video of 2005 DUMPSTER DONNY molesting children that will be enough to save the world from the MORON and what is being held over the clowns head has to be something like that .

  14. says:
