    a friend of mine was present during the car-driving-into-protesters thing + my fb is blowing up because everyone i went to with in undergrad has some reasonably immediate connections to the UVA area. a few of my close friends went there for undergrad & i did most of my hiking very close to Cville + stopped by it for great bagels after hikes usually

    feels weird to see it erupt with tumors of white nationalism. an fb pal from my undergrad years was present in the rally where the car was driven into the crowd

    Being an Eskimo Nationalist I have some surface sympathy for white nationalism, but just like Virginia they definitely have a low bar for what constitutes persecution and genocide.

    Also: I don't have social media, and I don't watch news internet or otherwise so I have no idea what this is about. I have spent some time reading and looking at white nationalist positions WRT to the loss of white culture (obviously I'm interested in what white culture is and what better place to go than to white nationalists for a confident assertion of what white culture is)

    regarding the 'state of emergency'

    MD declared one in the rioting after freddie gray's death:

    The U.S state of Maryland declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard of the United States on April 27, 2015, as a direct result of the rioting and widespread physical violence during protesting in Baltimore due to the Death of Freddie Gray.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_emergency#United_States

    the C-ville riots seem comparable to me, w/ at least 3 dead & 34 injured so far (edit: i guess to be fair 2 of those 3 dead seem unrelated to the riots, unless the riots had something to do w/ the police chopper goign down? i did not realize that when i made this post)

    also i didnt realize the US was apparently in some weird quasi-permanent 'state of emergency' and has been ever since 9/11:

    • The United States declared a national emergency in response to the September 11, 2001 attacks that remains in effect. This emergency suspends certain provisions of law that limit the size of the military and the duration of military service. The nationwide emergency is expected to be in effect until September 14, 2017, unless President Donald Trump renews the presidential memoranda. It was last updated by former President Barack Obama on September 14, 2016 to be in effect for another year. [67]

    i mean cmon rlly

    When you try every rhetorical strategy to pretend you're not racist, and give it up and come out of the closet because the dumbest president in US history gives you confidence that it's cool to stop hiding.

    Looks like terrorism, smells like terrorism, does Virginia still have the death penalty?

    My hope for humanity was that protestors on both sides would rush to the aid of the injured and work together. I don't think that happened though.:(

    What makes you say that? My friend who was present said the car was very clearly/intentionally driven into the crowd of counter-protesters. I guess it's hard to establish the specific intent was to kill, but it hardly seems a stretch.

    Also with shit like this going down I suspect there was quite a lot of murderous intent:



    I guess more to the point, this video of the car accelerating from a largely empty part of the street into the counter-protesters makes it pretty obvious it was completely intentional & that the intent was to harm/kill:

    The protestors there were 'lucky' that the driver ran into another car or he could have killed a lot more people. If it wasn't for that it could have been another Marseille. He should be treated like the terrorist that he is.

    I love how he compares himself (or blames?) Obama for some inexplicable reason, lol

    he then went on to brag about employment numbers

    It's truly baffling to me how anyone can even listen to the guy and not be embarrassed for our country.

    I'm on my phone or I would start quoting statutes. But in my experience and maybe the tzt lawlyers will agree or call me a retard but there is alot of criteria that must be met in such a charge. All it takes is one thing to be misaligned and it calls into question everything. That's an extremely dumbed down version of the law and I am sure the law nerds will be better suited to explain.

    Now I wait to be called a retard and a piece of human garbage for defending such a cruel act

    that description does make it sound like voluntary manslaughter is more likely

    Ur a disgusting bluebie, which makes u retraded and a piece of sub-human garbage.

    I'm gonna go ahead and admit the state of emergency was probably accurate.
