Charlottesville protests Car driven into a crowd

Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency after fights broke out between armor-clad, shield-carrying white nationalist demonstrators and similarly armed counterprotesters in Charlottesville. "We stand with [Charlottesville] Mayor Mike Signer and everyone in his city with hope and prayers for peace to be restored".

Former President Barack Obama on Twitter posted a quote from Nelson Mandela Saturday that begins: "People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love". Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said the driver has been arrested and police are treating the incident as a criminal homicide investigation.

But some of the white nationalists cited Trump's victory as validation for their beliefs, and Trump's critics pointed to the president's racially tinged rhetoric as exploiting the nation's festering racial tension. In Jenkintown, Montgomery County, a little more than two dozen people gathered at the town square.

Groups in Santa Ana, downtown Los Angeles, Oakland and other parts of the state said they are appalled by the displays of violence in Virginia and say President Donald Trump has not done enough to denounce it.

"Violent acts of hate and bigotry have no place in America", she said. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump.

The suspect is James Alex Fields, Jr., a 20-year-old white man from Ohio, Kumer said. That's what we believed in.

In Oakland, California, a flier for the solidarity event circulated on social media reads, "Charlottesville, We Got Your Back" and "Bay Area United Against White Supremacy".

In a statement issued after the president's news conference, the White House defended Trump's use of "many sides", saying that he "was condemning hatred, bigotry and violence from all sources and all sides". It has been going on for a long, long time.

The white nationalist "Unite the Right" demonstration - organized by right-wing blogger Jason Kessler - was organized in protest of a plan to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

The vehicle may also have hit another auto. "Witnesses tell me a vehicle plowed into counter-protesters here on Fourth Street, just about two blocks off of Market Street", Rodriguez said.

"We condemn the intolerance behind it and those who would pass it off as a legitimate political movement", he said. The attacks we are witnessing in Charlottesville are completely unacceptable and must not be allowed to continue.
