Counter-protesters? Damn. I was hoping it was an ex-Mount Prospect police car and a bunch of IllinoisVirginia Nazis.
/and for the humor-impaired, this was intended as a joke
//hit them with subpoenas, not cars
///"sub-" as in below. "poenas" as in penis. As in, hit them in the balls!

Casualties doesn't mean death necessarily, just injury or worse.

Another source linked on Twitter said, "A eyewitness tells Buzzfeed News' Blake Montgomery that the car backed up to gain more speed before driving into the crowd, adding that it had no license plate and a dark tint to the windows. Some reports say the driver is in custody."

Good jorb yelling at the cops "where the F were you?" when you yourself couldn't be bothered to put down your phone and call 911 yourself or aid the injured yourself.

  That caught me off guard, too. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt and assuming he was a little bit in shock and that is why he yelled that. He things on video for the police later so that's a help.

The reporting I've been hearing, about an hour after the incident took place mentioned broken legs and one person lying motionless on the ground.  Stick around, be patient and I'm sure we'll hear a whole litany of grievous injuries.

I don't think they had a chance to do that before he backed up the street at a high speed.

Did they arrest the Trump voter who plowed the crowd yet? We know they'll be taken alive.
 
2017-08-12 03:00:50 PM  
So is Trump going to call the driver of this car a terrorist?

No?

So the right-wing extremists are now OFFICIALLY using the tactics of ISIS and Al-quaeda.

Thanks for empowering them, rationalizing for them, and riling them up for votes and profit GOP and conservatives. Super responsible of you. Farking assholes.

In the last Charlotteville thread I read (this morning) people were HOPING that someone showed up and started running people over.

Well you got what you asked for, assholes.

No?


No if he is from the right wing he is mentally ill and has no relationship to the right. If a right wing protestor gets hurt it's because the left hates free speech and wants to burn America down.

/terrible video to watch.
//hoping for the best for the victims.
///kinda hope the counter protestors "detained" the driver
 
2017-08-12 03:02:57 PM  
Time to start registering cars, and have car-control laws.
// Oops. I guess we already do. Never mind.

Time for the digital activists to start outing these evil clowns en mass, and getting them kicked out of their jobs, and shunned out of society.

On Facebook, I follow a number of Progressive/Leftist pages.

The trolls are out in overwhelming force on the links/posts about this, every right-wing talking point you can imagine, saying they had it coming, that this was somehow the "alt right" protesters protecting themselves against "antifa", that it was a false flag by BLM, that it was perfectly justified because if you block the streets in protest you deserve this to happen to you, ect.

I'd like to think that they are just trolls, but I'm afraid a lot of those people really think those horrible things.

There are open Neo Nazi/KKK marches in American cities, and when they attack and try to kill counter-protesters. . .their supporters come out of the woodwork to cheer on the Nazis.

Goddammit so much
