Heather Heyer: The young woman who died in Charlottesville, was a proud Bernie supporter

Heather Heyer: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know. She was a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016:



Heather Heyer died when a driver slammed into a crowd of counter protesters during a rally in Charlottesville. She was only 32 and was killed while crossing the street during the protests, taking a stand against racism and hate. The counter protesters, carrying LGBTQ flags and Black Lives Matter signs, were demonstrating against a group of alt-right who had rallied together to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. The night before, the alt-right group had carried torches in protest, ramping up the tensions in the area.

Heyer was tragically caught in the middle of one driverís unexpected turn toward violence. Now, her supporters are asking everyone to light a candle and stand outside their home in her honor, showing they are standing against hate on Sunday night at 10 p.m. Eastern.

3. I saw that on twitter

even though some tried to deny it because some want to paint berners as white suppermests too.

Things can get tough on social media against berners.

it's still amazing in 2017 for all the attacks on people about patroitism for some to be upset over removal of robert lee stature.who let us remember was part of attempt treason against united states.confiderats were traiters to us over slavary.
