Why don't you call this "same organizer" by his name?  And tell us a little about him. He must be "fine folks" and last year's "rally" just got away from him.  He meant well.

heh

Yeah, you must mean the interlopers - heh

Its lawful assembly - and as you point out once the word is out........

This is what Trump was standing behind, not the white supremacy of it.

I do think the August rally in Charlottesville goes over much much better if there was no earlier event in the town

For your reading pleasure...

On the afternoon of August 13, Unite the Right organizer Jason Kessler attempted to hold a press conference in front of Charlottesville City Hall, but was forced to abandon the conference after being attacked by an angry crowd. One man reportedly either punched or attempted to punch Kessler, and a woman tackled Kessler as he was trying to leave the scene. Police came to Kessler's aid and escorted him from the area.[218] Hundreds of people shouted "shame" at Kessler and "say her name" (referring to Heather Heyer, the woman killed the day before).[219] Before ending the short news conference Kessler stated: "I disavow any political violence and what happened yesterday was tragic." He later posted videos online in which he blamed the city for the violence and death.[220] One man was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery for allegedly spitting on Kessler during the news conference.[219]

Why don't you quote what Kessler tweeted (it was in a tweet, so you could probably read that much) the next day about Heather Heyer.  For the record and since you have no interest in actually discussing this scumbag, he actually tried to repudiate that subsequent tweet.

I wanted to give you a chance to tell an entire story, but I guess you bumped against the 280-character limit.   Maybe "Katica" had something to say about it. Oh well, those interested can do the research.

Quote
  A tweet from the account of the far-right activist who organized the Charlottesville, Va., "Unite the Right" rally insulted the protester who was killed at the event, saying late Friday night that her death was "payback time."

"Heather Heyer was a fat, disgusting Communist," stated the tweet on an account belonging to Jason Kessler. "Communists have killed 94 million. Looks like it was payback time."

The rally was planned mostly to protest the removal of the Lee statue

If you think fine people cant be on the side of that, I cant help you.


No, they canít. Theyíve had their participation trophies long enough. You donít honor traitors and those monuments started going up in earnest after Plessy v. Ferguson and accelerated after the Red Summer of 1919.

Fuck those statues in the public square and fuck those who feel they must preserve symbols of white supremacy as the time when America was great.

KKK and neo Nazis run around waving the flags of armies who got their asses kick by the US of Fucking A!

You support those assholes in any way, shape or form and you canít claim to be a patriot.

Like Trump, I support their right to assemble - with the same respect I give BLM.

Reading kid's posts in this forum, I ask myself, does he believe what he posts, or is he just trolling the board for his amusement.

Either way its fucked up, he's either a racist/bigot or someone who isn't bright enough to understand or care about the corrosive and dangerous nature of prejudice on our country.

But I suspect its a little of both, he a racist, not very bright, and lacks the capacity to reason much beyond his immediate needs.

Bankshit joins the echo chamber chorus.

No one makes more personal attacks,"here", than you.

Those are your "immediate needs", to try to make your inadequacy as an individual fade from your conscience.

It won't.

You're still a sniveling coward, something kid is not.

Troll-When the message and the messenger eventually merge and become indistinguishable, I will eviscerate both.

I hope that clears it up for you, you gutless piece of shit.

You ducked Church Street. Wimp.

Kid would show. As did I.

Coward.

heh

nice spin you coward,

it was you who shit your pants, when I told you I had discussed your internet stalking with the Essex county DA.

your 180 denials were fucking hilarious

But thanks once again for confirming you're nothing but a perverted indecent stalker.

and stalker nothing good would ever come from our meeting.

but why don't you buddy up with kid, you guys seem well matched.

Still playing to the crowd, yellow one.

Sad.
