Greg Palast Photojournalist Faces Neo Nazi Gun Documenting 4 Neo Nazis Beating De'Andre Harris with [View all]

Much banter out there, by the Neo Nazi's, seeking to justify their causes and rights to oppress; but they can never justify 4 white fascist men beating a black man with sticks & steel..

Or the right to point a gun at photographer taking pics!


Greg Palast remarks, in his most recent posting, concerning this tragic saga, pointing out the fact his brave team kept taking photos, even when a gun was pointed at his face..

Don’t look away. Four white neo-Nazis are beating a Black man, crawling on the ground, with their metal poles and a yellow hunk of lumber. The beating continues — there’s blood on the pavement.

Our photographer, Zach D. Roberts, continues to shoot — even as a white militant raises a 9mm pistol to his face.

Zach got a shot of the gun and gunman, too. Luckily, the gunman didn’t shoot back.

One photo has gone viral internationally. These others we bring you here because they must be seen. Including, for the first time, the gunman.

Welcome to Charlottesville, USA. Trump’s America, month eight.

You can read more about this at Greg Palast's website

Greg Palast has been a hero, since day 1 of his reporting and being blacklisted for telling truths. The fact that his team puts their lives on the line, with him, has been unsung........until now.

We can't thank you, enough, Zach D. Roberts

We also need to take note of another hero, the teacher who was beaten by 4 men. May it be that all these superior MAGA get a Hate Crime publuc trial, including the gunman!

The young victim is De’Andre Harris, a special education teacher in Charlottesville.

According to the President, the violence was perpetrated on “many sides.” The only sides I see are the beaters and the beaten; De’Andre on the ground with the alt-Right storm troopers with weapons.
