Chaos in Charlottesville: No One Gave Peace a Chance, Including the Police

“What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created? …No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders … an uncontrolled or uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people … Whenever any American’s life is taken by another American unnecessarily—whether it is done in the name of the law or in the defiance of law, by one man or a gang, in cold blood or in passion, in an attack of violence or in response to violence—whenever we tear at the fabric of life which another man has painfully and clumsily woven for himself and his children, the whole nation is degraded.” — Robert Kennedy

Let’s be clear about one thing: no one—not the armed, violent, militant protesters nor the police—gave peace a chance during the August 12 demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va.

What should have been an exercise in free speech quickly became a brawl.

It’s not about who threw the first punch or the first smoke bomb.

It’s not about which faction outshouted the other, or which side perpetrated more violence, or even which group can claim to be the greater victim.

One young woman is dead because of the hate, violence, intolerance, racism and partisanship that is tearing this country apart, and it has to stop.

Lawful, peaceful, nonviolent First Amendment activity did not kill Heather Heyer.

She was killed by a 20-year-old Neo-Nazi who drove his car into a crowd of pedestrians in Charlottesville, Va.

Words, no matter how distasteful or disagreeable, did not turn what should have been an exercise in free speech into a brawl.

That was accomplished by militant protesters on both sides of the debate who arrived at what should have been a nonviolent protest armed with sticks and guns, bleach bottles, balloons filled with feces and urine and improvised flamethrowers, and by the law enforcement agencies who stood by and allowed it.

As the New York Times reported, “Protesters began to mace one another, throwing water bottles and urine-filled balloons— some of which hit reporters — and beating each other with flagpoles, clubs and makeshift weapons. Before long, the downtown area was a melee. People were ducking and covering with a constant stream of projectiles whizzing by our faces, and the air was filled with the sounds of fists and sticks against flesh.”

The madness is spreading.

People I know—good, decent people who value equality, reject racism, and believe strongly in tolerance—in their grief and dismay and disgust, threatened violence, acted like a mob, and adopted similarly violent, intolerant, disorderly tactics as those they claim to oppose.

Those who defend free speech were castigated by those who believe that only certain views should be allowed to be heard.

Those who cling to nonviolence were outnumbered by angry mobs intent on inciting violence.

Those who normally advocate a message of tolerance gave into the temptation to spew hate and intolerance.

The Rutherford Institute and the ACLU, two organizations who repeatedly stand up for the Constitution and the rights of all people—no matter how disagreeable their views may be—have been cursed at, denounced and threatened with violence for daring to remind government officials (and members of the community) that the First Amendment applies to all people equally.

The threats of violence have come from people who, while rightfully disgusted by the racist rhetoric and actions of the Neo-Nazis, wrongly decided that the answer to bigotry, intolerance and violence is mob justice, intolerance and more violence.

Glenn Greenwald gets it.

In a resounding rebuke of those who would opt to employ the tactics of fascists in order to silence fascists, Greenwald writes for The Intercept:

Demonizing lawyers and civil liberties advocates by depicting them as “complicit” in the heinous acts of their clients is a long-standing scam that is not confined to the U.S… Needless to say, none of these legal organizations or individual lawyers condone violence. They all vehemently oppose the ideology and worldview in the name of which this violence is committed. Yet they are all blamed for the violence and accused of complicity in it because they defend the free speech rights and civil liberties of people who express views in the name of which violence is committed.

The flaws and dangers in this anti-free-speech mindset are manifest, but nonetheless always worth highlighting, especially when horrific violence causes people to want to abridge civil liberties in the name of stopping it. In sum, purporting to oppose fascism by allowing the state to ban views it opposes is like purporting to oppose human rights abuses by mandating the torture of all prisoners. One of the defining attributes of fascism is forcible suppression of views… You can’t fight that ideology by employing and championing one of its defining traits: viewpoint-based state censorship…

The need to fight neo-Nazism and white supremacy wherever it appears is compelling. The least effective tactic is to try to empower the state to suppress the expression of their views. That will backfire in all sorts of ways: strengthening that movement and ensuring that those who advocate state censorship today are its defenseless targets tomorrow. And whatever else is true, the impulse to react to terrorist attacks by demanding the curtailment of core civil liberties is always irrational, dangerous, and self-destructive, no matter how tempting that impulse might be.

In other words, silencing unpopular viewpoints with which the majority might disagree—whether it’s by shouting them down, censoring them, muzzling them, or criminalizing them—only empowers those in the minority.

We are walking a dangerous road.

And then there’s the role police are supposed to play in upholding the law and preventing violence.

It’s a thankless job most of the time, and police must walk a fine line between respecting peaceful First Amendment activity and maintaining the peace, while not overstepping the limits of the Fourth Amendment.

For whatever reason—which only the police and government officials are privy to—the police failed to do their job at the Charlottesville demonstration, a charge levied by both the Alt Right and the counterdemonstrators.

The same police who in the past have responded to any acts of disorder or disobedience with the full power of their uniform and weapons were curiously lax in the face of outright violence.

As a Rolling Stone reporter recounted, “Unlike other events I’ve covered where anti-fascist protesters face off with white supremacists, the police make no effort to cordon the two groups off from each other to prevent violent clashes before they happen.”

Despite the fact that 1,000 first responders (including 300 state police troopers and members of the National Guard)—many of whom had been preparing for the downtown rally for months—had been called on to work the event, despite the fact that police in riot gear surrounded Emancipation Park on three sides, and despite the fact that Charlottesville had had what reporter David Graham referred to as “a dress rehearsal of sorts” a month earlier when 30 members of the Ku Klux Klan were confronted by 1000 counterprotesters, police failed to do their jobs.

In fact, as the Washington Post reports, police “seemed to watch as groups beat each other with sticks and bludgeoned one another with shields… At one point, police appeared to retreat and then watch the beatings before eventually moving in to end the free-for-all, make arrests and tend to the injured.”

Police Stood By As Mayhem Mounted in Charlottesville,” reported ProPublica.

Could Police Have Prevented Bloodshed in Charlottesville?” asked The Atlantic.

Police Response Inadequate at Charlottesville Rally,” concluded U.S. News.

There was no police presence,” a peaceful activist explained. “We were watching people punch each other; people were bleeding all the while police were inside of barricades at the park, watching. It was essentially just brawling on the street and community members trying to protect each other.”

Cornel West echoed this sentiment. “The police didn’t do anything in terms of protecting the people of the community, the clergy,” he told The Washington Post.

So what should the police have done differently?

For starters, the police should have established clear boundaries—buffer zones—between the warring groups of protesters and safeguarded the permit zones.

Instead, as eyewitness accounts indicate, police established two entrances into the permit areas of the park and created barriers “guiding rallygoers single-file into the park” past lines of white nationalists and antifa counterprotesters.

This is where the worst of the violence between protesters took place.

By 8:40 am protesters had already started gathering in the downtown area. Police failed to separate them.

By 10 am, a “mob of white supremacists formed a battle line across from a group of counter-protesters.” Police looked on and did nothing.

By 11 am, the general unrest had dissolved into all-out disorder. Police did not step in.

All the while protesters were throwing urine-filled water bottles, pepper spray and smoke bombs, and clobbering one another with flag poles and shields, Brian Moran, Virginia’s secretary of public safety and homeland security, watched from a command post overlooking the downtown area and did nothing.

Moran watched while fights broke out and police stood by and failed to intervene.

Only at 11:22 am, after hours of brawling and confrontations between the protesters, did Moran take action by calling on Governor Terry McAuliffe to declare a state of emergency. Only then did police mobilize to declare the gathering an unlawful assembly, “cutting off the rally before it officially began,” and begin clearing demonstrators out of the park.

There were other models that could have been followed.

As investigative reporter Sarah Posner notes, “At a neo-Nazi rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, just days before the November election, police employed this tactic with success – while the rally attendees and anti-fascist protesters taunted each other over a barrier of police, they were blocked from coming into physical contact. But in Charlottesville, the police inaction creates a sense of pandemonium.”

A good strategy, advises former federal prosecutor Miriam Krinsky, is to make clashes less likely by separating the two sides physically, with officers forming a barrier between them. “Create a human barrier so the flash points are reduced as quickly as possible,” she said.

In Cleveland, the site of the GOP presidential convention, “Trump diehards, Revolutionary Communists, Wobblies, and Alex Jones disciples” faced off in a downtown plaza. Yet as The Atlantic reports, “Just as confrontations between the groups seemed near to getting out of hand, police swooped into the square in huge numbers, using bicycles to create cordons between rival factions. The threat of violence soon passed, and no pepper spray or tear gas was needed.”

For that matter, consider that Charlottesville police established clear boundaries just a month earlier in which they maintained clear lines of demarcation at all times between KKK protesters and counterprotesters. Indeed, the primary violence at the July 8 Klan rally came when police used tear gas and pepper spray to force protesters to disperse.

The question, as always, is where do we go from here?

It’s a question that Martin Luther King Jr. wrestled with and addressed in the last book he wrote before his assassination, Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?

As King pointed out repeatedly, hate begets hate. Violence begets violence.

And as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, tyranny begets tyranny.

The day after King was assassinated, Robert F. Kennedy delivered these remarks:

This is a time of shame and sorrow. It is not a day for politics. I have saved this one opportunity to speak briefly to you about this mindless menace of violence in America which again stains our land and every one of our lives. It is not the concern of any one race. The victims of the violence are black and white, rich and poor, young and old, famous and unknown. They are, most important of all, human beings whom other human beings loved and needed. No one – no matter where he lives or what he does – can be certain who will suffer from some senseless act of bloodshed. And yet it goes on and on…

Too often we honor swagger and bluster and the wielders of force; too often we excuse those who are willing to build their own lives on the shattered dreams of others. Some Americans who preach nonviolence abroad fail to practice it here at home. Some who accuse others of inciting riots have by their own conduct invited them. Some looks for scapegoats, others look for conspiracies, but this much is clear; violence breeds violence, repression brings retaliation, and only a cleaning of our whole society can remove this sickness from our soul.

For a broad and adequate outline we know what must be done. When you teach a man to hate and fear his brother, when you teach that he is a lesser man because of his color or his beliefs or the policies he pursues, when you teach that those who differ from you threaten your freedom or your job or your family, then you also learn to confront others not as fellow citizens but as enemies – to be met not with cooperation but with conquest, to be subjugated and mastered. We learn, at the last, to look at our brothers as aliens, men with whom we share a city, but not a community, men bound to us in common dwelling, but not in common effort. We learn to share only a common fear – only a common desire to retreat from each other – only a common impulse to meet disagreement with force.

The lesson for all of us is this: remember, when you strip away the politics and the class warfare and the skin color and the religious ideology and the gender differences and the sexual orientation and anything else that can be used as a source of division, remember that underneath it all, we are all the same.

As Nelson Mandela recognized, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

    Whitehead is fence-straddling. The Antifa started it and the cops let it happen, probably on orders from McAuliffe. This was a setup from beginning to end. Instead of mouthing tired, old platitudes about peace, love, and similar feelgood fantasies, how about putting the blame were it really belongs, with the Left. There is a real war going on and it’s about to get a lot uglier.


      What happened in Charlottesville is evidence that good people are damn sick and tired of zio created division, left to fester through Ohomo’s administration. This country is a powder keg getting ready to explode. We are in need of a revolution to oust this zio cancer. The “real” Americans do not want fag, white genocide, and marxist libtard stench that’s been slowly creeping into the American culture, we’be had enough and the time to resist and fight back is now.

    • archer

      Can’t agree more, the fact is the so called alt-right is tired of having their history and heroes erased by the commie left, this has nothing to do with racism, but with trying to keep your history from being destroyed by a handful of commie trolls. The anti-fa have history of attacking anyone that don’t want to submit to their agenda, they proved this during the election campaign and after the election, their tactics are always violent whether on a street or on a college campus.

  • John C Carleton

    That the Federal government engineered this, the city executed it, and the State backed them up, shows the for profit corporations are attacking America and the American people. I find this unacceptable.

    That these three, USA corporation, N.C. State, sub corporation of the USA corporation, Charlotte, sub corporation of the N.C. State for profit corporation, incited this riot, this attack by hired thugs, on people peacefully rallying with a permit, while the police stood and watched, sounds like something the American people were told happened in Nazi Germany.

    This has convinced me there is no other way.

    Whether this event was staged or not, there is no doubt that the seeds of hate and division have been sown. And we reap what we sow.
    With so much tension between the various groups, the white supremacists, ANTIFA, BLM, KKK, Black Panthers, Muslim Brotherhood, etc, I see no need to waste time staging a fake riot when it’s so easy to arrange for a real riot. How hard could it be to get a bunch of these people together to battle against each other? It would certainly be a lot easier and less expensive than paying provocateurs to pretend to fight against each other.
    I suppose it’s possible that they paid enough people to masquerade as white supremacists and/or ANTIFA members in order to attract more of them to the event. But it wouldn’t be difficult to get a bunch of them together to start a melee with each other. Simply announcing that there will be a white nationalists demonstration should be enough to attract ANTIFA members. After that it’s a simple matter to just stand back and do nothing until they start assaulting one another with fists and weapons, and apparently piss and shit.
    It’s a good example of how deeply divided we are. Even here there isn’t much cohesion. Is it really just the space of the internet keeping us from assaulting one another? Or can we do better than that?
    We need to stay focused, and remember who the real enemy is. TPTB, the deep state, the elitists, the aristocrats, the globalists, the 0.01%, the Bilderbergs, they have many names. But they are all the same people. And they are the ones we should focus our efforts on. Not each other. It doesn’t matter if we are black, white, brown, democrat or republican, liberal or conservative, left or right, religious or atheist, gay or straight, we all need to forget this nonsense being put between us by TPTB, and focus on breaking free from their agenda.

    • lee ho fook

      Well, SP, how do I break this to you gently….the JEWISH SUPREMACISTS ARE ENGINEERING ALL OF THIS—THEY ENGINEERED 911, AND ALL THE PSY-OPS SINCE THEN They want our guns so that we can’t fight them as they destroy all white people. You will be tested on your comprehension of this comment…study hard….

      • SP_88

        I can see the agenda. I know the ruling class is desperately trying to get complete control over us. And I know that they are manufacturing chaos in order to push us into a corner.
        But I don’t want to paint the problem with a brush that’s too wide. I don’t want to blame every single Jew for the actions of a few of them.
        To say that every single Jewish person is out to destroy the country is like saying that every single Irishman is a drunk, that every single Muslim is a terrorist, that every single black person likes fried chicken and watermelon.
        I’m sure that some of the people who are pushing a globalist agenda are Jewish. I know that George Soros is a Jew. But not all of them are Jewish.
        I don’t happen to know the nationality of every NWO elitist. And I don’t care. It doesn’t change the need for us to take action. And it doesn’t change what action we should take.
        I think that you are too focused on whether these people are Jewish, and not enough on what we should be doing about it.
        Even if they are all Jewish, what do we do about it? How do their religious beliefs effect our course of action? If these people were all some other religion or if they were all atheists who didn’t believe in any God, wouldn’t you still want to do the same thing to stop their agenda? Or is it ok to be enslaved by Nazis, atheists or W.A.S.P.s?

You appear to be stuck on this “Jews are taking over the world” theme. You should branch out, expand your horizons, blame a different boogie man for a while. The Jews will still be there when you get back.

          • SP_88

            You’re so clever. Did you think of that all by yourself? It’s funny how you think you are so smart, that you know who is doing what as far as the hierarchy of the aristocracy, TPTB running the world from behind the shadows. But your knowledge seems to extend no further than “the Jews are doing it”. Which is sad because you don’t look any further than the Jews. And that limits your ability to really see what’s going on. Of course you are just gonna say that I’m a Jew because I dare to suggest that there is any answer other than “It’s the Jews”.
            You seem to think that anyone who doesn’t believe in your brand of bigotry is a Jew.
            But I don’t think you really believe that. I think that you simply cannot come up with anything else to say. Your lack of imagination and your one track mind have so limited your thoughts that you are unable to come up with anything other than “The Jews are taking over the world and destroying the white people”.
            Economy is on the fritz – must be the Jews.
            War in the middle east – must be the Jews.
            Fake news on every channel – must be the Jews.
            Car won’t start – must be the Jews.
            Toilet is clogged – must be the Jews.
            Don’t agree with lee ho fook? You must be a Jew. And not just any Jew, but a TALMUDIST or a HASBARA, whatever that is. And now there are apparently Jew Supremacists. I think you’ve hit the Jew “problem” from every angle.
            And of course you won’t “lower yourself” to read anything written by a “filthy Talmudist” who “smells bad” and needs a “nose job”. Which is funny because Jews have big noses, and of course you think I’m a Jew.
            I’m beginning to think that you don’t like Jewish people very much. I wonder why.
            Did some boy with a big nose touch you inappropriately one year at band camp? Did you have to tell your psychologist about it by pointing to the place where he touched you on an anatomically correct doll? Did he touch you with his big nose?
            There must be some reason why you are so angry. You are a very angry little man. You should talk to your psychologist about the source of your anger. He can help you.

    You don’t blame the police. They are there to serve and protect the people, not the hired thugs of these NGOs, not these professional, Soros paid, anarchists.

    As all Americans must know: the chicken-sh*t falls from the top down. So why are all these groups not where their tormentors live? Why are these groups not going to the source of their problems? Because the source of their problems are the professional politicians and these NGOs that have hired them and are paying them to attack Americans.

    If you have a grievance with a company’s product or service you don’t go to the lowest peon. You go direct to the top — to the offending company’s president and its Board of Directors. You ban them — not some flag, not some statue — but them.

    The source of this country’s problems are not in places like Chicago, Detroit, Hartford, Baltimore, Charlottesville, Durham. It only seems like it. The responsible parties are in our nation’s state and federal capitals and the propaganda capitals of our mainstream media.

    That’s where these protesters should be. Both sides. All sides. You clean these dens of evil out and I guarantee you, things will get a whole lot better right away.

    You demand that these wholly owned mainstream medias start reporting the news, honestly and factually and dispassionately. And if they don’t, or they won’t, then you take them down. You put them out of your misery. You demand that they do their jobs. Burning the “New York Times” and the “Washington Post” to the ground would be a great first start.

    You go to Hollywood and demand that they take the politics out of entertainment. You tell entertainers to stop being politicians.

    Next, you go to our nation’s capital and you demand term limits. Mandatory Term Limits. If these stupid and inept professional politicians want to push McCarthyism and this hysteria about how “The Russians Are Coming! The Russians are Coming!” then you limit their ability to control our government by limiting the amount of damage and dysfunction these career criminals are doing to our country. One term, and one term only.

    Mandatory Term Limits.

    Next you demand an end to these family dynasties. You demand that the likes of the Cuomos, Clintons, Bushes, Kennedy’s, the Obamas, and the Browns step down. You forbid them from any public service in the future. We are a republic not a monarchy. One term and one term only.

    My real problem is how all these groups are wasting their time. All of them are. Why are all these groups in places like Chicago, Detroit, Hartford, Baltimore, Charlottesville, and Durham? For crying out loud: Go where the real action is. Make it count.

    Go to the source.

    One of my favorite quotes: “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.”
    The “counter-protesters” went there looking for trouble, looking for a fight, and put themselves in the arena where nothing good could happen. Now they’re whining about what happened and are blaming everyone else for the misfortune that they engineered – a familiar theme for Snowflakes.

    Have faith in the average person, on all “sides”, we know this was a staged event, these people do not represent what the population believes, no matter how much Hollywood would like to believe. George is just wasting his money. It does though give us an understanding of just how much this corruption has infiltrated our government. I for one did not think it was this pervasive. .
