White Nationalist Leaders Don't Want to Return to Charlottesville for Anniversary Rally

News Week 5/10/18

Almost a week old, but I don't recall seeing this.

White nationalist leaders who featured prominently in the deadly Unite the Right rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, last August have told Newsweek that they are unlikely to attend a reboot of the event planned for its one-year anniversary.

Jason Kessler, one of the organizers of last yearís rally, applied for a permit for a second event in November 2017, but it was rejected by the city. He has since sued Charlottesville over that denial, blaming officials for the violence that took place, in an effort to get a sequel on its feet.

But itís becoming increasingly clear that other white nationalists do not share Kesslerís appetite to return to the city to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. The first Unite the Right event was costly for the far right, both financially and politically, analysts have noted. The event, which saw members of the Ku Klux Klan and younger, more internet-savvy white nationalists marching side by side, has spawned a myriad of criminal and civil court cases. Many attendees of the rally also lost their jobs or were ostracized by their families after activists and concerned citizens circulated photographs of them online. Others are in jail, or currently awaiting trial.

3. Really! When someone's hate is on public display and on media, what did they ...

expect? They made such a grand entrance in Char., w/ the tiki torches and march, just like in the old days w/ the KKK? Idiots...all they did was to bring out those who don't believe in hate, who believe that in working together (ALL of us) that much more can be effectively done, and probably better too. Love wins over hate, anytime.

4. They don't even mention Heather Heyer's death.

It certainly might also be a factor. I'm sitting here wondering if that was an intentional omission.
