Car strikes crowd at U.S. white nationalist rally, killing one


A state of emergency has been declared in
the U.S. state of Virginia… where white nationalists clashed with counter-protesters
on Saturday. A car rams into the crowds leaving one person
dead and nearly 20 others injured. The driver is in custody but has not been
publicly identified. The rally, dubbed “Unite the Right,” saw hundreds
of neo-Nazis, white nationalists and right-wing groups descend on Charlottesville, home to
the University of Virginia,… to protest the removal of a statue of a southern general
from the U.S. Civil War. Some have criticized President Trump for not
responding for the violence until he tweeted about it a few hours later. The president later condemned the violence
on both sides, though he didn’t mention the white nationalists or their views.

  1. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio called the man (identified as James Alex Fields Jr.) who plowed his car into a crowd of Black Lives Matter counter protesters a "white supremacist terrorist. Rep. Paul Ryan, also a Republican, also echoed those words, as Sen. Ted Cruz said the man was a "domestic terrorist." The man clearly employed a tactic with his car that ISIS uses.
