White nationalists are clashing with police and counter-protesters at a demonstration Saturday in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia, protesting the city's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a public park. "My brother didn't give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home".
