Thousands of radical right-wing activists are planning a violent “summer of hate” rallies across the country in the coming weeks, according to new reports.
One alt-right gathering this weekend is expected to draw hundreds of white supremacists at a rally just 100 miles from Washington D.C. Organizers say it will be one of the biggest pro-Trump events of the year, and bloody clashes with counter-protesters are expected.
“This is the biggest rally event we’ve had this millennium,” event flag-waver Brad Griffin said on a recent radio showed hosted by former KKK leader David Duke.
During previous demonstrations similar to this, local governments have spent tens of thousands of dollars on police resources to keep unruly right-with protesters in line.
Hundreds of Alt-Right activists and white nationalist extremists are set to descend on the small community of Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday in what’s shaping up to be the largest hate-gathering of its kind in decades in the United States.
“Unite the Right” is expected to draw a broad spectrum of far-right extremist groups – from immigration foes to anti-Semitic bigots, neo-Confederates, Proud Boys, Patriot and militia types, outlaw bikers, swastika-wearing neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Ku Klux Klan members – all of whom seem emboldened by the Trump presidency.
… In the roll-up to Saturday, The White House and the Justice Department have not said a word about the pending racial drama and conflict just down the road in Charlottesville.
The event may well become a seminal point for the Alt-Right and the extremist hate fringe: It’s a bold move beyond the anonymity of web sites, message boards, pseudonyms and social media — a move to take the hardcore, racist, white nationalist message to the public square.
It is extremely telling that Trump has not said a word about these violent threats. He knows that the people putting together these terrible festivities are his supporters.
This should be a major alarm for true Americans – we cannot allow violent radicals to take over our country!
