World War II vets who fought Nazis have message for Charlottesville marchers

Caesar Civitella, who killed more than a dozen Nazis in World War II and helped capture more than 3,800, has a message for the neo-Nazis who staged a deadly rally in Virginia over the weekend.

"I would tell them that we have no use for Hitler-type philosophy in the U.S. and that they can either stop being a Nazi or people will give them bodily injury," said Civitella, 93, of St. Petersburg.

Civitella was reacting to a march Saturday in Charlottesville, Va., in which one of the neo-Nazis is accused of driving a car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one and injuring 19. Additionally, two Virginia State Police officers were killed when their helicopter, which was monitoring the rally, crashed.

During the war, Civitella served with the Office of Strategic Services, a forerunner of the CIA. On Aug. 29, 1944, he and a team of fellow OSS operators jumped into occupied France to help the French resistance. Working with the French Maquis, he helped capture nearly 4,000 Nazis, according to his official government biography.

Seeing the neo-Nazis marching, he said, "was terrible.


deadly rally accelerates removal of Confederate statues

In Gainesville, FL workers hired by the Daughters of the Confederacy chipped away at a Confederate soldier's statue, loaded it quietly on a truck and drove away with little fanfare.

In Baltimore, Mayor Catherine Pugh said she's ready to tear down all of her city's Confederate statues, and the city council voted to have them destroyed. San Antonio lawmakers are looking ahead to removing a statue that many people wrongly assumed represented a famed Texas leader who died at the Alamo.

Some people refused to wait. Protesters in Durham, North Carolina, toppled a nearly century-old statue of a Confederate soldier Monday at a rally against racism. Activists took a ladder up to the statue and used a rope to pull down the Confederate Soldiers Monument that was dedicated in 1924. A diverse crowd of dozens cheered as the statue of a soldier holding a rifle fell to the ground in front of an old courthouse building that now houses local government offices.

The deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is fueling another re-evaluation of Confederate statues in cities across the nation, accelerating their removal in much the same way that a 2015 mass shooting by a white supremacist renewed pressure to take down the Confederate flag from public property.


Free-speech rally set for Boston has some concerned

The City of Boston is making preparations for a conservative rally scheduled for Saturday on Boston Common, following the eruption of violence in Charlottesville, Va., that has raised troubling questions about the rise of extremists’ views across the country.

After a woman was killed when a car rammed a crowd of counterprotesters and others were injured, Twitter and Facebook exploded with postings about a rally next weekend in Boston that they say might attract white supremacists. Organizers were spreading information about the rally on Facebook, urging supporters to gather from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday on the nation’s oldest park for a Boston Free Speech rally.


White nationalists plan another protest, Texas on September 11

(CNN)Brace yourselves for Round 2: White nationalists are planning for another protest in September.

White nationalists, neo-Nazis and other extremist groups plan to hold a "white lives matter" rally at Texas A&M on September 11. Richard Spencer, the white supremacist who helped found the so-called alt-right movement, will speak at the event, according to the Battalion, Texas A&M's student newspaper.

The Battalion reports the Texas protest organizer, Preston Wiginton, was inspired by the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. That protest drew a large number of counterprotesters and turned violent. One woman was killed and dozens injured when police say a man with views sympathetic to neo-Nazis deliberately drove his car into a crowd.


Connecting the dots

It's all connected & evil.
Richard Spencer: "Russia is the sole white power in the world.”
David Duke: “Russia is key to white survival.”


Numerous states considering anti-protest bills

Just as a reminder, Republicans in many state legislatures are trying to protect drivers who mow down protesters.


under a bill in the state legislature, drivers who do injure protesters blocking traffic would be exempt from civil liability so long as they were "exercising due care."

"The sponsor was very clear that the wording of the bill is not to say that it's OK to go and hit people with your car," DesAuteles said. "But that's the way that people are reading it. The only way it's being read by the vast majority of people is: 'I can hurt protesters and get away with it.'"
