This article is so wildly cucked it could have been published by the SPLC:
“UVA’s president, Teresa Sullivan, deserves credit for seeing this in advance. In an August 4 letter to our community, she warned that “the organizers of the rally want confrontation; do not gratify their desire.” She quoted an event advocate as hoping to “create a massive polarizing spectacle in order to draw as huge a contrast as possible.” The organizers got what they wished — not just in the deaths of Heather Heyer and state troopers Berke Bates and H. Jay Cullen, but also in the others injured. …”
Where to start?
1.) When I said I wanted to “create a massive polarizing spectacle in order to draw as huge a contrast as possible,” I obviously didn’t have violence in mind. Instead, I assumed the police would do their job and keep both sides separated, we would have our big rally and it would be broadcasted live on social media. It would be highly triggering and would erode politically correct taboos, but it would be a relatively peaceful event like the previous rally held in Pikeville, KY in April.
2.) If I believed that Charlottesville was going to devolve into a violent spectacle, why didn’t any of us come armed? I didn’t have a shield, a helmet, goggles, a gas mask, a gun, a knife, a stick, etc. No, I assumed that the police were going to be well prepared to handle the situation. A few of us carried shields in order to deal with any projectiles which we were told might be hurled into the park.
3.) How on earth did we cause the police helicopter to crash? Did we have a rocket launcher?
4.) The people who were walking around with semi-automatic weapons were neutral Patriot groups. They were peacekeepers who weren’t there to take either side.
5.) We came to protest the removal of the Robert E. Lee monument. We had a constitutional right to assemble in Lee Park. The ACLU and a federal judge agreed with us. “Constitutional Conservatives,” however, sided with the Democrat governor and the Democrat mayor and violent Antifa who bullied the police into standing down and unleashing anarchy in the streets.
It was obvious who failed in Charlottesville – the police failed to keep both sides separated and stood idly by while the violence escalated. This was used as an excuse to declare a “state of emergency” and nullify the federal court order which allowed our free speech rally to take place.
