From Jason Kessler, here is a good breakdown of just how badly the media misrepresented last year’s Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
It’s also worth noting that the initial melee at Charlottesville broke out when UTR rally-goers refused to allow the ‘clergy’ to trample their rights by physically preventing them from entering Lee/Emancipation Park in what was a flagrant and legally unambiguous violation of our 1st Amendment rights. Just because the people preventing us from entering the park for our permitted rally were doing so under the aegis of their own ‘vulnerability’ doesn’t equivocate their action IN ANY WAY to black civil rights protestors in the 1950s enduring brutality at the hands of police. WE were the victims here and THEY came for the sole purpose of inciting and inflicting violence. This is a simple fact.
In other news, before I post Jason’s laundry list of unambiguous photographic and documented evidence supporting Trump’s famous “both sides” remark after Charlottesville (which really was an understatement), I’d like to mention that a complete stranger tried to knockout-game me in the side of the face a few days ago in an unnamed metropolitan setting in the US. (He lost that game.) While I won’t reveal the man’s race, I will say that he was wearing an ankh tee-shirt and that I wholeheartedly bow down before the altar of his diversity.
Just sayin’. Anyway, here is the laundry list:
Since there still seems to be widespread skepticism about Trump’s claim that violence occurred from the counter-protester side last year I’ll include a few video links you can view of Antifa initiating violence at last year’s rally.
Remember: none of this would have occurred if the police hadn’t stood down and allowed violence so they could declare an unlawful assembly.

Here is drone footage from August 12th 2017 which shows that everyone in Lee Park was peaceably assembled for a free speech rally. It was only outside where Antifa was allowed to block the roadways and attack demonstrators that violence occurred https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOtkJuRJdzk&t=0s&list=PL9gddAHx82seIt_fEZoLjQ4Ia2ETIqCpQ&index=17
