1. NPR reported that the phrase woul DC alternate

between "you will not replace us" and "Jew will not replace us."

Airbnb cancelled accounts of anyone trying to rent in the area.

54. Good on Airbnb

If I owned any business in Charlottesville, it'd be closed this weekend. And since the government of Charlottesville ok'd this travesty, I'd be thinking of moving. And if I ever go thru Charlottesville again, you can bet I'll keep in travelling. Will never spend a nickel there.

29. I know I will get flamed for this,

but this would not be possible without social media. These rallies are promoted and put together on Facebook and twitter.
Without social media, the rise of the salt-right platforms would not be possible. Without the internet, Stormfront was a pathetic news letter.
People in their communities restrained these idiots by shunning them socially. Now they can connect with hundreds of thousands of other brain damaged individuals with a keystroke. They feel free to speak out for the first time in a generation because of Donald Trump, but also because they can find like minded. pathology on the internet and do it all behind the curtain of Internet anonymity.

Pandora's box comes to mind.

46. Probably true. Although these groups were active at local level even before telephones.

Social media does embolden them and they probably hope their hatred will go viral.

I'm watching a live feed in Charlottesville now. Looks like police have finally arrived to move the nazis on. Wish they'd turn the water-cannons and dogs on them.

Thier ability to organize has increased exponentially with social media. I think that Facebook has to do as twitter and remove these accounts from their platform.

6. Cowards acting to intimidate -but do so while students aren't yet back

for the school year.

This seems all about shock value/theatrics. I agree with others posting elsewhere - they want to be so public - circulate the images. If employers see - they can decide whether than is good PR for the business/organization.

<snip>Anglin also cops to having "problems with women." All of this advice is addressed to men, and he assumes that his audience is 100 percent male. "We need to keep women on the sidelines. Not speaking, not leading, and with no official membership in anything." But he wants to attract women and suggests that buying a fitted shirt and getting ripped will not only score his crew political clout, but get them "groupies"</snip>

from a military recruiter the other day. After I explained that my son was now also my ward, the conversation relaxed and I told him, don't worry, my family and my husband's family has had many members in various branches of the Armed Forces. After I enumerated a few and that they were veterans, he heartily agreed that we deserved to skip a generation of military service. He was nice to chat with. Marine Corps.

I hope cameras capture the faces. I hope they are shared locally, nationally and worldwide. I hope these people carrying torches and chanting "blood, soil" are recognized for the despicable cretins they are and shunned by all wherever they go.

My heart is very saddened by this news. We are regressing and I'm afraid we are closer than we realize to the national mood that encouraged and enabled the rise of Nazi Germany.
