White nationalist cries after being forced into hiding over Charlottesville march


We have done everything in our power to keep this peaceful!' VICE News Tonight also spoke with residents of Charlottesville, members of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the Charlottesville Police. The rhetoric pours out of them, but Vice doesn't lose track of what really happened over the weekend - the domestic terrorism, the chants of "Jews will not replace us", the police in full gear. "I'm not even saying we're nonviolent", he replies.

When a VICE reporter asks white supremacist and speaker of "Unite the Right", Christopher Cantwell, who he was maced by, he responds, "by Commies".

'I am armed, I do not want violence with you. That was the entire point of this. Cantwell refers to a tweet Manning sent out during the Charlottesville events, and uses transphobic language and misgendering in discussing her.

Chris Cantwell did not appear to play any role in the weekend's deadly attack, in which police said suspected neo-Nazi James Fields drove his vehicle through a group of counter-protesters, killing one person and injuring 19 others. "We're here obeying the law, we're doing everything that we're supposed to do, trying to express opinions".

In the documentary, Vice spoke to white nationalist leaders including Cantwell, Robert Ray from the Daily Stormerwebsite, David Duke, and Matthew Heimbach. "I actually have another AK in that bag over there", he says.

She also spoke to counter-protesters in the lead up to last Saturday's violence.

It also showed Saturday's violent clashes in Charlottesville including the moment a auto allegedly driven by Alex Fields Jr hit a crowd of protesters, killing Heather Heyer, 32.

Reddit has reportedly banned the sub-reddit discussion board for r/Physical_Removal after users complained about its violent content.

For anyone, including President Donald Trump, who thinks there are two legitimate sides to the Charlottesville riots or "fine people" attempting to preserve history mixed amongst the white supremacists who marched in that Virginia city this weekend, VICE has a rather ugly wakeup call. They let them come. "I knew once the red hordes started swinging that I had to begin physically removing Democrats and communists with my pepper spray and bare hands, posthaste", he wrote.
