    Quote
    A car rammed into a group of people peacefully protesting against a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, killing one person and injuring 19.
    ....
    Witnesses said those hit by the car were people peacefully protesting the planned white supremacist rally and footage showed the vehicle crashing into another car, throwing people over the top of it.

    The driver was later arrested, authorities said.

    The unrest took place around a planned “Unite the Right” rally at the city’s Emancipation Park as fighting and scuffles broke out between the two groups.

    At least eight people were injured in the clashes and there has been at least one arrest related to those.

    About two hours after the first clashes on Saturday, authorities were on the scene after a vehicle plowed into a group of people marching peacefully through downtown Charlottesville.

    The photographer Pat Jarrett, who was close by when the incident took place, told the Guardian: “A gray Dodge Charger ploughed into a sedan and then into a mini-van. Bodies flew. People were terrified and screaming. Those closest to it said it was definitely a violent attack. The driver, who people later described as a skinny white guy with a straggly beard, reversed out of there and drove off, the front end of his car all smashed up.”

    Protesters march in Charlottesville, Virginia. ─ A

    3 dead, dozens injured in violent white supremacist rally in Virginia

    Quote
    United States (US) President Donald Trump blamed "many sides" for the violent clashes between protesters and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday that left three people dead and dozens others injured as emergency was declared in the state.

     
    The chaos erupted around what is believed to be the largest group of white
     supremacists to come together in a decade including neo-Nazis, skinheads, members of the Ku Klux Klan who descended on the city to "take America back" by rallying against plans to remove a Confederate statue of Gen Robert E. Lee in the city's Emancipation Park.

    A 20-year-old allegedly attending the white supremacist rally rammed a car into protesters, killing a woman and injuring others.

    the news  link  also says  with this picture  says



    Quote
    Just as the city seemed like to be quieting down, black smoke billowed out from the tree tops just outside of town as a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed into the woods.
      

    Both troopers onboard, Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, 48, and Berke M.M. Bates, one day shy of his 41st birthday, were killed.

    Police said the helicopter had been deployed to the violent protests in the city, which has been caught in the middle of the nation's culture wars since it decided earlier this year to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, enshrined in bronze on horseback in the city's Emancipation Park.


    well that is the news from AMRIKA .,BUT THESE IDIOTS  who write such news could have also given picture  of that 32 year old Heather Heyer  who died in protesting against white heroes that are trying to save their SKIN COLOR ...

    From what I have read it is being investigated as a terrorist act. The police completely failed at the protest. Both sides brought weapons. DM is ignoring this fact. Trump points it out.

    No, he was pro "God is punishing Africans with slavery and they are better off being beaten to death here than they were free in Africa as it is for their own good".
    and also pro "go capture freed slaves and make them your property" with his troops.

    Just pointing out one of the supposed reason for the protest, not that I believe it, was a statue of Lee and what he represents. Lee was hardly pro-slavery nor more than Lincoln was an abolitionist. Often the icon represent the person more than the person represents the icon. People focus on the icon but do not question if it correct or not. They just parrot the narratives about the icon.

    Except in letters he called it morally evil. He just did next to nothing about it. The raids were made on both sides. The Union did it via existing laws in which slaves were property via the Emancipation Proclamation and Confiscation Acts. The Union and Union Army until 1864 were the owners of every slave. The morality was vastly different but legally speaking the same until 1864. Lee did the same.

    He was ignorant of slavery in general.

    His religion blinded him. However every Christian I know that has read the OT has the same messed up blind spot as well. So does every Muslim and Jew. Any religion that has advocated for slavery in the past does this to modern followers. That does not make them pro-slavery. At best it makes them apathetic and drones. They would be just like Lee if they were born centuries ago as they have no ability to question anything.

    He was a slave-owner, who led a nation built because of slave-owning. Abraham Lincoln chose to fight against it. Their actions speak and paint them in history in ways that their words or purported ignorance or moral hand-wringing can not.

    Yes. He made a choice for the wrong reasons. His misguided idea of Providence prevented him from realizing slavery could be ended by humans.  That is apathy and shallow thinking. He also was not a federalist.

    He didn't fight the Civil War for slaves. He fought to maintain the Union.

    Here's Howard Zinn writing about Lincoln and emancipation: https://libcom.org/history/lincoln-emancipation-howard-zinn
    Does this sound reasonably accurate? It's not something I've read much about.
    Quote
    Thus, when the Emancipation Proclamation was issued January 1, 1863, it declared slaves free in those areas still fighting against the Union (which it listed very carefully), and said nothing about slaves behind Union lines. As Hofstadter put it, the Emancipation Proclamation "had all the moral grandeur of a bill of lading." The London Spectator wrote concisely: "The principle is not that a human being cannot justly own another, but that he cannot own him unless he is loyal to the United States."

    I don't dispute any of this. I question it's relevance in a modern context. In a modern context Lee and his ilk ought to be rightly vilified for perpetuating the abomination of slavery. And whatever his reasons, Abraham Lincoln's actions were a foundation for many of the gains of black Americans.

    There is no moral justification for glorifying the former of the two in a modern context.

    As people being on the loosing side does not mean they supported the ideas of that side 100%. Washington owned hundred of slaves yet I see no call to remove any of his monument nor removed from money.

    Seriously. The military is not a bastion of ethics nor a superior moral example. There is no need to tout their values as a reason to glorify those who would keep the institution of slavery.
    "The military" has their own territory where the rest of us cannot go. They have plenty of room to put up whatever statues they want to.
