As opposed to when and how, the who and what's are pretty hard to define in reference to the Charlottesville, Virginia protests this weekend. In order to try to piece togeather the events, a person has to research all of the available media transcripts and without fail, use logic and reasoning to tie them all in. To my knowledge, not one popular media group has yet to give a complete analysis of the protests. From what I have found out it started with the city council who very narrowly voted to get rid of the statue of Robert E. Lee and his horse. There was no public opinion poll taken, no vote, just....remove it because someone was offended. After a judge presented a stay on the project in order to hear all of the sides, a group (who? dunno)protesting the removal and armed with a permit and their tiki torches started their small, fairly peaceful, convention at the statue site. Apparently, one speech was focused on something akin to white supremacy while still another denounced racism in all of its facets and focused on the statue's historical value. Please do note: In the aftermath, some spokesperson for the city said that city officials were horrified by the group but didn't say anything about the fact that it was the city who took the money and issued the permit. The president and other sources pinpointed the KKK, neo-Nazi's and white supremist groups but from my seat, the KKK was not represented at the rally. Dunno about the other two because they do not wear uniforms or sheets. Maybe the lighting of the tiki torches at night were reminiscent of the KKK but again, flip your own coin. At long last, at some point Antifa showed up in a counter protest, sans permit, and armed with homemade tear gas bombs and blow torches started throwing rocks, people, and yes, the gas bombs. Meanwhile, some kid from Ohio mowed through the crowd with his car and killed one woman and injured several others. Then, somewhere in the mix a police helicopter went down in the woods nearby the protest site killing the two passengers. (coincidence?) All good journalistic articles should answer the questions of who, what, when, where, how and sometimes even why but thus far, I cannot find anything so profoundly accurate that it completes those questions to any degree of my personal satisfaction. I can barely find answers to two of those catagories much less all of them.
