Mayor of Charlottesville calls Pro-Confederate rallies ‘horrific’

(CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.) — A group of white nationalists carried torches Saturday night in Charlottesville, Virginia while protesting the planned removal of Confederate statues in the city — an incident that has provoked anger and frustration from politicians and activists.

The torch wielders — reported to be several dozen by local paper Daily Progress — were reacting to a November 28 city council vote to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee at Charlottesville’s Lee Park, the public space where the protest took place Saturday.

A court injunction has halted the removal of the statue for six months, but that didn’t stop the protesters, led by avowed white nationalist Richard Spencer, from reportedly chanting slogans like “we will not be replaced,” “Russia is our friend” and “blood and soil ” at the site of the statue.

Mike Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, expressed his disgust with Saturday’s protest in an interview with ABC News.

They should burn down the city, isn't that what the BLM crowd does and gets away with it?

It appears peaceful not like the liberal riots.

Thomas Jefferson is rolling over in his grave right now with all the nonsense going on at UVA and in Charlottesville. Glad I'm not there to see any of it. It's just atrocious.

Liberals fail to see the marginal differences in the protest because of the people protesting, and why they're protecting. . If it fits their narrative, it's OK to protest. If not, it's 'horrific'.

They are taking down confederate statues and symbols so slavery didn't exist either.

The leftists want to undermine the country by removing it's history and turning people against each other when they are finished we will look a lot like North Korea.

If I lived in Germany and there were statues of Hitler everywhere they would NOT be tolerated because people were murdered and treated like slaves by Hitler. The difference here is the population that has been treated like slaves are of a different color. We need bigger history museums that can house these icons of history but I don't think I would like to walk by it everyday like it didn't happen.
