The murder vehicle

Here is why I do not take part in protests or other demonstrations involving people. I don’t even visit amusement parks, fairs, or carnivals any more because I can buy cotton candy at a local candy shop, and I can make candy apples at home.

Someone can take your life. It’s not just a ghetto problem, a trailer park issue, or a fact of barrio life. You can be hurt or killed anywhere – while shopping for groceries or clothes, while having lunch at a cafe, or walking down the main street of any town eating an ice cream cone.

On 12 August 2017, a 32 year old woman was killed and more than a dozen people injured – some of them critically – when a White Nationalist drove his car into a crowd of counter protesters when the ‘Unite The Right’ rally that White Nationalists had organized was beginning to disperse. The perpetrator, an Ohioan (in other words, a Redneck Yankee, originally born in Kentucky) named James A. Fields, 20, revved his Dodge Challenger and raced into the crowd walking long a narrow downtown street, fleeing the scene upon wreaking his destruction, only to be nabbed sometime later. He is being held under suspicion of second degree murder (I think it should be first degree), failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death, and malicious wounding. The FBI and the Department of Justice are investigating the matter for civil rights violations.

“The violence and deaths in Charlottesville strike at the heart of American law and justice,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and cannot be tolerated.”

Witnesses to the crash said a gray sports car accelerated into a crowd of counter demonstrators — who were marching jubilantly near the mall after the white nationalists had left — and hurled at least two people in the air. “It was probably the scariest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Robert Armengol, who was at the scene reporting for a podcast he hosts with students at the University of Virginia. “After that it was pandemonium. The car hit reverse and sped and everybody who was up the street in my direction started running.”

Saturday afternoon, President Trump, speaking at the start of a veterans’ event at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., addressed what he described as “the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia.” In his comments, President Trump condemned the bloody protests, but he did not specifically criticize the white nationalist rally and its neo-Nazi slogans, blaming “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.” – NY Times


Fields’ mother, Samantha Bloom, told The Associated Press during an interview in Toledo, Ohio, that she knew her son was attending a rally — but she thought it was a rally for President Trump, not for white nationalists. “I thought it had something to do with Trump. Trump’s not a white supremacist,” she said. She added, “I just knew he was going to a rally. I mean, I try to stay out of his political views. You know, we don’t, you know, I don’t really get too involved, I moved him out to his own apartment, so we — I’m watching his cat.”

 

Fields’ arrest wasn’t the only one. Three others were taken into custody on different charges: Troy Dunigan, 21, of Chattanooga, Tennessee, arrested and charged with disorderly conduct; Jacob L. Smith, 21, of Louisa, Virginia, arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and battery; and James M. O’Brien, 44, of Gainesville, Florida, arrested and charged with carrying a concealed handgun.

If this incident isn’t a case of domestic terrorism, I don’t know what is. I have not read much on social media or news websites where this car ramming attack is being acknowledged as terrorism. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., the lone African-American Republican in the senate, called the attack “domestic terror” and encouraged it to be “condemned.” “Otherwise hate is simply emboldened,” wrote Scott. – ABC News 


I knew there would be violence associated with the rally. White people get a kick out of misquoting statistics that they claim prove how violent and criminally inclined Blacks and Latinos are, yet they neglect to mention the violence perpetrated by their own race over the centuries, in America and elsewhere. Saturday’s insanity proves that Whites aim to preserve their racial dominance at any and all costs. I could care less about the Confederate flag and monuments, statues of long dead generals and soldiers of the Civil War, and whether or not White people use the N word. Removing symbols of the Confederacy from public view will not erase the hatred. If anything, it will bring it out in the open.
