NewsOne Now Audio Podcast: White Domestic Terror In Charlottesville, Virginia

Play

• Hundreds of battle-ready white supremacists armed with weapons, shields and helmets staged a rally in the normally quiet college town of Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend chanting anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant and racist slogans.

The event became deadly after a man with neo-Nazi ties plowed his car into a group of those counter-protesters killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

• President Trump remained unusually quiet following the violence in #Charlottesville, but after much criticism, even from members of his own party, he put out this tweet.

• Known for his aggressive tactics with criminal justice reform and his straight forward dialogue, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe was clear on Sunday to the right-wing groups in #Charlottesville… “GO HOME, YOU’RE NOT WANTED HERE”.

• Some African American groups such as the NAACP think President Trump’s refusal to disavow the white supremacists that sparked the violence in Charlottesville is giving racists power.

• Roland Martin said on NewsOne Now: President Donald Trump was missing in action, embarrassed himself, his administration and the nation with one of the most soulless, gutless, shameful and despicable statements ever utter by an American president after a tragedy.

• NewsOne Now panelist A. Scott Bolden explained: Trump as a white supremacist sympathizer has allowed racist to be heard.
