Racial division narrative intensifies in media after vehicle runs into crowd at fringe protest

CHARLOTTESVILLE (INTELLIHUB) Hundreds of fully-armed mostly out-of-state white nationalists and counter protesters clashed at a local park Saturday morning in what is being called the largest gathering in years.

The melee unfolded after a several different fringe groups began to gather at a “Unite the Right” rally which was scheduled to commence around noon time.

The violence which included a car being used as a weapon by plowing into a crowd of people was so bad that it prompted Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe to declare a “state of emergency” around 11 a.m. and is now being used by the media as a political tool.

As a result, the Virginia Army National Guard was mobilized to the area along with a heavy presence of law enforcement personnel to disperse the “unlawful assembly.”

“I am disgusted by the hatred, bigotry, and violence these protesters have brought to our state over the past 24 hours,” Gov. McAuliffe said.

As of yet, President Trump has not addressed the issue publically.

It has also been reported that the locals fear the violence may become “normalized.”
