CHARLOTTESVILLE is a warzone after violence between White nationalists and anti-fashist forces

A white nationalist rally in CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va, turned violent on Saturday.
Rally supporters and counter-protesters screamed, chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles and unleashed chemical sprays on each other Saturday morning.
Some of the things they chanted were Notsy phrasing which I shall not write here.
Per the ap: Men dressed in militia uniforms were carrying shields and openly carrying long guns.
Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler planned what he called a “pro-white” rally to protest Charlottesville’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a city park. Instead it became a flashpoint.
Per the afp: On Friday the state’s governor Terry McAuliffe in a statement called on Virginians to stay clear of the rallies, but by Saturday morning hundreds from both sides had already begun to skirmish.
Police began evacuating the city’s Emancipation Park and making arrests after declaring those gathered there to be part of an “unlawful assembly. There were two “serious but not life-threatening” injuries, police reported on Twitter.
