charlottesville antics
#1
Movie 
so, we are a week out from the latest political hubbub- this one hits me a little bit close to home, considering i happen to live in the lovely city of charlottesville, VA

more specifically, i live in the city center of charlottesville. most specifically, i can see the controversial park from my workplace and could run there in fewer than 10 minutes from where i currently sit in my apartment

the recap, as told from my memory:

there is a local alt-right crazy that, rumor has it, lives in a house with others suffering from some disability or another (not to shame them, but to wonder what disability this guy has) named kessler. we recently (within the last few years) elected a somewhat belligerent vice mayor named wes bellamy

wes bellamy calls for a park in the center of the city, Lee Park (named for robert e lee) to be rededicated, and for the statue to be removed. kessler sees this as a thread against his pro-white agenda and digs up some gross, anti-white tweets from bellamy to justify removing him

a few weeks ago, there was a KKK demonstration that i was witness to (waiting for a bus, i swear) to show support for keeping the statue. it was not terrible (i mean, apart from the obvious) and was held during the day

last weekend, though, the wal mart nearest us was shut down due to some folks bringing in guns and as i was out on the downtown mall, i saw people walking with knives and the now-iconic tiki torches

come saturday, way more people came out to protest the removal of the statue than expected and so the permit to protest in that park was moved. at this point, the protesters were therefore illegally gathered at the park and were also chucking their torches and etc at the counterprotest. in the mess, one person managed to plow their car into some others and killed a girl. there are a few memorials now around for her, im sure you heard
