    I think that the guy that drove the car was someone who probably sided with the white supremacist group but I don't think he was with that group...just someone who got mad about the counter protesters and decided to get in his car and plow into them.

    But I may be wrong...there was violence on both sides that I'm seeing....they clashed.

    The fact that his Mother was unaware of her son's views, is not unusual
    I hope he never see's the light of day

    The mother has little to do with this story in my opinion. I think this happened because the two sides clashed and an unstable person went crazy.

    When there are two opposing sides on the same streets, there's going to be injuries. Sadly this went too far, it's usually rock and bottle throwing etc,

    Oh...I didn't even read what the mother said. I was showing that to show how it all happened....not what the mom had to say.

    The same teacher, who was widely quoted as saying that the guy had a fascination with Adolph Hitler, also said that he was being treated for schizophrenia as a child, but the news media conveniently chose to go with the Hitler quote instead.

    No, the media did that.

    They did that - not because there were no racists there, as I am sure there were racists there (KKK, Neo-Nazis, BLM, Antifa). They deceived you by making you believe that was what it was all about. Protesting the removal of a statue for a war hero (in this case a man who was not in favor of slavery and who freed those who he obtained through marriage, long before his counterpart on the Union side (Ulysses S Grant) freed his own slaves, which he kept enslaved until Missouri outlawed slavery after the Civil War. Even throughout the war, Robert E. Lee retained the admiration even of those he fought against) is not a racist act.

    I always thought that "antifa" stood for anti-first amendment. That would be far more fitting, since they pretty much adopt the tactics of fascists in order to deny first amendments rights to those who they disagree with.

    Quote from Yahoo news "Records from 911 calls revealthat Bloom had called police at least twice to accuse her then-teenage son of assaulting her and wielding a knife. Records from the Florence Police Department in Kentucky show that Bloom told police in 2011 that Fields, a young teenager at the time, had stood behind her wielding a 12-inch knife. During another 2010 incident, Bloom said that Fields had hit her head and locked her in the bathroom.


    Bloom also told police Fields was taking medication to treat temper issues."

    Sounds like possible schizophrenia to me. I don't see any mention of it on any other news source. And I looked at a lot. Maybe the liberals can find a little sympathy for this poor mentally ill man.

    Okay, it appears that we have been had. Jason Kessler, the man who organized the Charlottesville protests against the removal of the statue, and who had said a lot of deliberately racist and hateful things, clearly to provoke confrontation... Well, it appears that until November of 2016, when Trump was elected, he had been involved in left-wing activism and was an Obama supporter, and then a Bernie guy. As far back as 2011 and the Occupy events, he was working with the other side. Even the Southern Poverty Law Center, clearly not a friend of the truth when it can be used to exonerate anyone on the right, is on to it, and it's spelled out a little more clearly in Business Insider.

    In my youth, I was involved in anti-war protests during the Vietnam War, and a common tactic of those who were opposed to the antiwar movement was to place people within the movement who would steer people into acts of violence or other crimes, for which they could arrest those who would not otherwise have been criminals. Even in my teen years, I realized that the person who was shouting the most vile stuff during a protest was probably an undercover cop or someone who was working with them.

    In this case, it seems pretty clear that the Charlottesville events were planned to erupt in violence, which they could use - as they have - against Trump. After Trump's election, he joined the far right so that he could steer them on a course that would lead the embarrassment that the media has been making so much of. Once again, we've been had. Don't expect retractions from the media, however.

    Sometime it takes time before the truth to come out the only problem is they have already put their propaganda in the peoples minds. The real truth has a struggle to be heard.

    I have to disagree with you on that, @Gary Ridenour . I understand your anger but violence only begets more violence.

    Similarities Antifa and ISIS both hid their identity behind a mask. Destroy historic monuments and infrastructure, and putting people in harm’s way. The Antifa has allies in government taking down historical monuments in the middle of the night so the light of day does not shine on their treason.
