The title is correct. As the news item said, "stand in solidarity" is to take over the traditional job of the rule of law.

 

Yes, when the law is ignored, just as the KKK/Nazi group ignored the direction of the Charlottesville police, caos erupts.  Sadly some only support the law when they like the results.  But thanks for your contribution.....


You are aware are you not that the police were told to stand down and only intervened after the apparently desired violence began.

 

The above claimed by right-wing alt news sources and disputed by one who would know....the police chief.

How 'bout that - CNN is now "right-wing alt news":

http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/14/us/police-response-charlottesville-trnd/index.html

 

You are aware are you not that the police directed those you support, the kkk, to enter an area from one place and they ignored the directive which they agreed to earlier.  Which caused the violence.  Facts matter, but never to the Alt-right....

You are making a false and offensive assumption in "those you support, the kkk". Beyond that, when someone or some group ignores a police directive, that is the job of the police - not the leftwing brownshirts.

My pleasure. Always delighted to bring the truth to those pained by it.

Social Change is Happening Around You, NOW!

Message 6 of 6

 

 

A protest in Durham, North Carolina, organized to stand in solidarity with anti-racist activists in Charlottesville, Virginia, took a turn Monday when participants toppled a Confederate statue.

 

Demonstrators gathered at the old Durham County courthouse around the Confederate Soldiers Monument. The monument, dedicated in 1924, depicts a soldier holding a gun on top of a concrete pillar. The pillar is engraved "In memory of the boys who wore gray."
 
A person climbed a ladder and tied a rope to the top of the statue as the crowd chanted, "We are the revolution."
 
Protesters pulled the rope and erupted in cheers as the statue toppled onto the ground. Several people ran up to the mangled statue, kicking it and spitting on it.
 
"The racism and deadly violence in Charlottesville is unacceptable, but there is a better way to remove these monuments," tweeted Gov. Roy Cooper.
 
From New York to Indiana to California, numerous demonstrations have been organized since Saturday, when Heather Heyer was killed in Charlottesville while counterprotesting a white nationalist rally. Many demonstrators connected with each other through public Facebook events calling for supporters.
 
"Emergency Protest -- Stand in Solidarity with Charlottesville," reads the Durham protest event page.
 
At the end of the event description it reads: "Tear down all white supremacist Confederate statues now!"
 
Durham police said no arrests were made because the incident occurred on county property. CNN has reached out to county officials for a statement.
