Trump condemns racism on Charlottesville anniversary

State Of Emergency Declared In Charlottesville For 'Unite the Right' Anniversary

The nation's capital is gearing up for a self-described white civil rights rally. "White people think they're the ones being targeted for racism and a lot of these people are Trump supporters so when the president makes a comment like this with "all types" it's hard to not be suspicious". "So it would not surprise me if it was a very small turnout".

At that time, Trump argued there was blame on both sides and equated the actions of white nationalists, who carried Nazi flags and chanted "Jews will not replace us", to that of counterprotesters.

Sunday's Unite the Right rally in LaFayette Park near the White House is organized by Jason Kessler, who invited the NSM to the Charlottesville event.

A release on the emergency declarations said this is to address the potential impacts of events in and around Charlottesville and Washington, D.C. that will take place this weekend.

The mother of Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman who was hit by a vehicle and killed last year, has also spoken publicly leading up to the anniversary.

The NSM, a white supremacy group with headquarters in Detroit, came to Newnan for a rally in April.

"The law allows for first amendment assemblies of any kind", Newsham said.

By midafternoon, the city said hundreds of people had passed through the downtown checkpoints. "We denounce hate, we denounce anti-Semitism, and we denounce the rhetoric we expect to hear this Sunday".

An independent investigation of last year's rally violence found the chaos stemmed from a passive response by law enforcement and poor preparation and coordination between state and city police. Organizers of the alt-right rally likewise warned attendees to not bring firearms or other weapons, including pepper spray, clubs, knives and shields. More than 1,500 counter-protesters plan to gather at various downtown locations, including in the same park. "If they do all that and we're not here to serve them, I kinda feel pretty bad". The players say they kneel during the anthem to draw attention to racial injustices.

On Saturday in Charlottesville, the downtown area was virtually locked down, with more than 700 officers on hand to ensure there would be no violence.

Black Lives Matter also have a permit for counter-protests. Kessler recently abandoned his lawsuit, but told the AP he is pressing ahead with plans for the August 12 rally in Washington, D.C.

Democrat Mark Warner, a USA senator from Virginia, insisted Trump cleared the way for white nationalists to spread "hate and bigotry". They will ride to Farragut Bottom Station together and march to Lafayette Park.

Virginia Senator Mark Warner, (D), said that Trump shares responsibility for the violence in Charlottesville.

But on Saturday, Charlottesville appeared more contemplative than chaotic. "I was grateful that I was able to come out of that alive". "There's no chance we're going to put up with an invasion like what was seen in Charlottesville".

The site also advises participants to take "an Uber or a taxi" to avoid police, press and protesters. "This year, I'm afraid of the police", Woolfork said.

There is division among the factions "uniting" at the rally, as well. Those who were paying attention knew it was coming.

Ahead of the weekend, it was unclear whether white supremacists would try to reprise the rally.

Several counter-protester organizers have also planned out events.

"The current government, in our view, is at least tacitly and in some cases supporting white supremacists", Lance said.

"D.C. police deal with protests every week and more or less have unlimited resources".

"I think there is blame on both sides", Trump said during a press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower in NY.
