The violence and the groups responsible for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend should be condemned in the harshest possible terms. Emboldened by recent political events, white supremacists flocked to Charlottesville, Virginia weekend to protest the scheduled removal of a monument of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. Holding torches in hand, these white supremacist protestors clashed with the counter protesters in a terrifying, violent scene. Our current political leaders – especially President Donald Trump – need to name and shame the groups in this violence in the harshest terms.
