“The law firm of Hunton & Williams has just issued an independent, 207-page report on the Unite the Right protest that took place in Charlottesville last August. The city of Charlottesville commissioned and paid for the report, but it is no cover up. It is a slashing indictment of the way the city prepared for and handled the demonstrations. It is a thorough vindication of the perspective of the Unite the Right demonstrators.” (Emphasis added)- American Renaissance (1).
And here is some more:
“Unite the Right militia groups did a better job than the police of separating warring factions… ‘clergy’ working with antifa blocked the routes for demonstrators to attend their legally sanctioned rally. Leftists barred the way against a column of the League of the South and the Traditionalist Workers Party and were, as police noted, ‘trying to take over the street.’ Although police could tell things were going to get ‘ugly,’ they took no action to clear the street and let the demonstrators pass. The demonstrators were forced to walk through the ranks of screaming counter-demonstrators, while police looked on… It is worth recalling that the demonstrators had a permit to hold a legal rally. It was the duty of the police to stop anyone from interfering; they obviously failed in their duty. Violence was inevitable… One of the most astonishing passages of the report quotes officers who heard (Black) CPD Chief (Al) Thomas say: ‘Let them fight, it will make it easier to declare an unlawful assembly’.” (Emphasis added -JG).
Very “third-world”, in my opinion…
According to his Wikipedia page (2), the Mayor of Charlottesville, Michael Signer, “hired the city’s first African-American police chief”, and according to his page on the Charlottesville City website (3), he is “a lecturer at the Batten School for Leadership and Public Policy at the University of Virginia”, and teaches seminars on “Race and Policy” among other subjects. He is Jewish.
