James Alex Fields, Jr. : 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Albermale County Jail

James Alex Fields was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, after police discovered that the car that rammed into the Charlottesville rally was registered in his name. A 32-year-old woman named Heather Heyer died at the scene, and 19 additional people were injured from the crash. Nine patients are still in the hospital as of Monday, but they are in good condition. An additional two people died in a helicopter crash connected to the events.

Fields, 20, was raised by a single mom, after his dad was killed by a drunk driver shortly after he was born. His mother had called 911 twice in the past, telling officers that he had beaten her, AP reported. But when he was pulled over by police in May, he showed no signs of aggression. He was working as a security officer and was on vacation time while attending the rally. A high school teacher said that Fields had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and was on medication.

The suspect is in jail, and was denied bond in an arraignment on Monday.

This is a developing story.


1. James Alex Fields, Jr., a Security Officer, Was Booked on Suspicion of Second-Degree Murder and Other Charges

James Alex Fields, Jr. was booked and charged with one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, failure to stop for an accident involving a death, and hit-and-run, Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail Superintendent Martin Kumer told The Washington Post. Fields was born in Kenton, Kentucky.

The car that rammed into the crowd in Charlottesville was registered in his name. The car was a gray 2010 Dodge Challenger. Early rumors had pointed to a different man after Internet detectives tracked down the license plate. But that man, who won’t be named, said he had sold his gray 2010 Challenger. Those early rumors turned out to be unfounded.

According to Cincinnati.com, the Challenger was purchased by its latest owner in June 2015 in Florence, Kentucky, from Kerry Toyota. One month later the title was updated in Maumee. The vehicle was not stolen.

Fields does not appear to have a previous criminal history. He last lived in Maumee, Ohio, about 15 miles southwest of Toledo. He was working as a security officer for Securitas Security Services USA and was on previously requested vacation time when the crash occurred. Securitas said in a brief statement that he has since been fired.

Fields worked for Securitas from May 5, 2016 to July 5, 2016 and then from November 23, 2016 to Monday, when he was fired. He had a security officer license from Ohio and “performed his duties satisfactorily.”

Fields was denied bond when he was arraigned Monday in the Charlottesville General District Court. The public defenders office said they couldn’t represent him because of a conflict of interest: someone in the office was related to a person injured in the crash, Richmond.com reported. The judge assigned Charles Weber, a local attorney, to the case. Fields appeared in the courtroom via a video monitor.

According to witnesses, counter protesters were hit as they turned a corner during their protest march. They were chanting things like “our streets” in response to the words “Unite the Right.” This happened after police had dispersed a group of white nationalists, CBS reported.

Here is one video from the scene. WARNING: This video may be disturbing.

Here’s another video from the scene.

WARNING: This video is graphic and shows the moment the driver hit the crowd.

James Fields was briefly on active duty status with the Army, but only from August 18, 2015 to December 11, 2015. His mother had posted on Facebook about her son going to boot camp and being really happy about it. An Army spokesman told CNN that Fields didn’t meet the training standards and was never awarded a military occupational skill or assigned a unit outside of basic training.

A new video has emerged showing Fields, in the same car, being pulled over by cops in May. At the time he showed no aggression:


2. James Fields’ Mom Had Called 911 in the Past, Saying He Beat Her

911 transcripts show that Fields’ mom, Samantha Bloom, had called 911 twice in the past, saying that he beat her and threatened her with a knife, AP reported. Florence Police Department records said a call was made in 2011. She said her son was holding a 12-inch knife. An earlier call from 2010 showed Bloom saying the Fields had smacked her head and locked her in a bathroom. He did this because she told him to stop playing video games, she said in the call. She said in the call that he was taking medication to control his temper.

Derek Weimer, a high school teacher of Fields’, said that Fields was diagnosed with schizophrenia and had been on anti-psychotic medication, Richmond.com reported.

After she learned about the crash, Bloom said that she only knew he was going to the rally but nothing else. You can see her interview with AP in the video above. The Toledo Blade talked with Bloom, as did AP. She said that Fields had texted her on Friday saying he dropped his cat off at her apartment and was going to an “alt-right” rally in Virginia.

She said she told her son:  “I told him to be careful. [And] if they’re going to rally to make sure he’s doing it peacefully.” She said he didn’t say anything about the rally possibly being extremist and she had no idea he was involved when she returned home from dinner on Saturday night. She really didn’t know what the alt-right rally meant, only to think that it had “something” to do with Trump. “Trump’s not a white supremacist,” she said.

She told the Associated Press in the interview:

I just knew he was going to a rally. I mean, I try to stay out of his political views. You know, we don’t, you know, I don’t really get too involved, I moved him out to his own apartment, so we — I’m watching his cat.”

He had only moved out of her apartment about five or six months ago, she said, after they moved to northwest Ohio from Kentucky for her job.

In August 2015, Bloom had updated her Facebook account to show a photo of her and her son, and wrote about how happy she was that he had just left for boot camp. Military records under Fields’ name indicated that he only lasted in boot camp a few months.

Meanwhile, an uncle, under the condition of anonymity, told The Washington Post that Fields’ mom had raised Fields alone as a single mom after his dad died. She’s a paraplegic, his uncle said.

Fields’ father was killed by a drunk driver just a few months after he was born, an uncle told The Washington Post. His father left Fields money that his uncle had kept in a trust until Fields was 18.

When he turned 18, he demanded his money, and that was the last I had any contact with him.”

The uncle said Fields wasn’t very friendly and was mostly subdued.

I’m not going to slam my nephew or anybody in my family without knowing what the h— happened.”

Fields’ aunt, Pam Fields, agreed. She told The New York Times he was a “very quiet little boy,” and she’d only seen him about five times in the last 10 years.

A neighbor of Fields’ growing up told The New York Times that he was quiet and had some trouble making friends in school. The neighbor said that his mom was always trying to do the best for him. (Read more about Fields’ family in Heavy’s story here.)

 

The video below shows a press conference from the day of crash, with a statement from Gov. Terry McAuliffe:

On the same day that this occurred, a deadly helicopter crash also happened in Charlottesville, leaving two dead. The Virginia state police helicopter crashed just hours after the crowd was hit. This brought the death total for the day to three in Charlottesville. Read more about the helicopter crash in Heavy’s story below:


3. The Charlottesville Police Chief Said the Crash Was ‘Premeditated’

A Facebook photo of James Fields, Jr. is being widely circulated. His Facebook account has since been taken down:

In a press conference, the Charlottesville Police Chief, Al Thomas, said the crash was premeditated.

Witnesses referred to the crash as a “deliberate act of terrorism.” Others said the car appeared to deliberately mow down pedestrians.

Taylor Lorenz, a reporter for The Hill, said that every witness she interviewed at the police station believed the act was deliberate. She spoke with two officers who said it might not have been intentional, but she later clarified that those officer hadn’t been on the scene.

Earlier, Lorenz had said that an officer (who was not at the scene) had told her they thought he was scared and not malicious. She later took down the tweet, but here’s what it said:

Twitter

Lorenz had taken a video of the crash, but her stream was cut off when someone punched her in the face, she said:


4. Some Officials Are Urging the Case Be Investigated as Domestic Terrorism, as News Develops that Fields Had Radical Views and a Fondness for Hitler

As more research is done into Fields, more evidence is emerging to indicate extremist views that he held. CNN reported that Derek Weimer, a social studies teacher at Randall K. Cooper High School, said Fields had radical beliefs when he taught him as a junior and senior in high school. Weimer told CNN:

It was quite clear he had some really extreme views and maybe a little bit of anger behind them. Feeling, what’s the word I’m looking for, oppressed or persecuted. He really bought into this white supremacist thing. He was very big into Nazism. He really had a fondness for Adolf Hitler.”

He built a rapport with Fields and was able to discuss sensitive topics without Fields’ getting angry. He said he tried to take every opportunity to distance Fields from those beliefs.

One of Fields’ former classmates, Keegan McGrath, told AP that Fields had said he went on a school trip to Germany because he wanted to “get to the Fatherland.” They were roommates on the trip in 2015. McGrath said he went home early, unable to handle rooming with Fields. Before that, Fields had been acting normally and never did anything unusual, McGrath said. But on the trip, Fields refused to visit France or interact with the French because he referred to the French as “being lower than us and inferior to us,” McGrath said. When McGrath challenged him, things grew heated between the two, he said. He added the Fields was never an outcast at school and had friends.

Some officials and politicians are urging that the case be investigated as an act of domestic terrorism. Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted on the evening of the crash that the Department of Justice should “immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism.”

Here’s his full statement:

Cruz’s statement came after President Donald Trump was criticized by both Democrats and Republicans for speaking about violence on “many sides” rather than calling out the incident as domestic terrorism. (Read more about this in Heavy’s story here.)

The FBI has since announced that it’s opening a civil rights investigation into the car crash:

Meanwhile, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a statement that the DOJ is fully supporting a federal investigation by the FBI.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe had declared a state of emergency in the city because of violence that was breaking out between protesters and counter protesters. In fact, a group of white nationalists had just been dispersed shortly before the car rammed into the counter protesters who were carrying LBTQ flags and Black Lives Matters signs.

This disturbing photo below shows the moment the car hit the crowd:

Here’s another photo from the scene:


5. Fields Registered as a Republican in Ohio in 2016 and May Have Had a Controversial Facebook Account

GettyThe car that allegedly plowed through a crowd of protestors marching through a downtown shopping district is seen after the vehicle was stopped by police several blocks away.

The Daily Beast reported that Fields was a registered Republican, according to public records. He was registered to vote in Lucas County, Ohio and made his registration on January 23, 2016. He had been cited for expired license plates in May 2017.

The following is an unverified Snapchat screenshot that shows a man being arrested near a car that looks like the one from Charlottesville:

While Fields is being investigated, a Facebook accounted has started gaining a lot of attention. The name of the account is Conscious Ovis Aries, but its URL is Facebook.com/Jamies.Fields.9279. The page, however, has been taken down and we can only rely on archived pages to get a glimpse at what was on the Facebook profile. BuzzFeed and New York Daily News have reported on the page, believing it may belong to James Alex Fields, and BuzzFeed shared a number of photos from the page with detailed explanations here.

It’s important to point out that at this time, it is not confirmed whether this page belongs to James Fields. Heavy reached out to a few of James’ friends and family to see. The profile does link to some friends in Kentucky, which is where James Field was originally from, and it references him visiting a location in Ohio, where he later moved to.

Here are some of the photos from that Facebook page that have been gathering attention. You can see an archived version of the page here.

The page was archived in Russian, but it doesn’t appear that was its original language:

Facebook

Some of his photos included a baby picture of Hitler and a Pepe the Frog, along with a photo standing in front of a car that is similar but not identical to the one from the crash.

Facebook

Another photo from the page:

And more photos, once again, not archived in English:

Facebook

And a couple other photos from the archives of the page:

Facebook Archive

Once again, it’s not known for certain if these pages belonged to the same Fields or not. However, at one point Fields’ mother was friends with Conscious Ovis Aries on Facebook, which lends more credence to the theory. To learn more about the Nazi references and white supremacy symbology on the page, see Heavy’s story here.

Meanwhile, New York Daily News reported that they photographed Fields on the front lines of the rally at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, part of the Vanguard America hate group.

Alt-right demonstrators were protesting the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. (Read more about what exactly was being protested in Heavy’s story here.)

Before the crash, some of the white nationalist protesters had already been dispersed. They had been removed by law enforcement officials earlier in the day, before the crash occurred. Some are now saying they will sue. (Note: It’s those who were protesting the statue’s removal who are threatening to sue, not the counter protesters.)

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information is available.

I notice that the photo of someone hitting the back of his car with a baseball bat, just before he increased speed toward the crowd that was blocking the street, is lacking in this article. Any particular reason for that omission?
If he is indeed guilty of “premeditated vehicular manslaughter” …. then he should stand to the full extend of punishment allowed by law – however, there is a presumption of innocence in this country legal system and ALL pertinent information MUST be used to ascertain his guilt, or innocence.

Today a news interview with a spokesman for a white supremacist group stated that James Alex fields was justified when he drove his vehicle into a crowd of people in Charlottesville,Va. As a member of the white race,I denounce this piece of $!#t and anyone like him. Charles A. Bailey

The only problem with this narrative is thast it appears protesters attacked Fields’ car thus provoking him to fear for his life and hit the gas.

Something is screwy about this whole thing. Why would they give permits to “anti-protester”, when on the same day they gave permits to persons who the anti-protesters wished to protest? And what the hell is an “anti-protester” anyway. How does an “anti-protester” protest, if he is an “anti-protester.” Why did the police not do anything. And how did this guy get through barricades with his car? He traveled down a whole block before he struck anyone. This doesn’t make a lick of sense.

What would really help your nigh half a million viewers… and still growing!… is a profile of the drunk individual who ran over James’ father; and therby, left James without a male guide in his life! And as James’ mother gave James a “personal perspective” on what James’ father was like, it would be helpful to add the just aforesought profile with that of James’ father!… although, the latter– and from James’ mother!– would be anecdotal (save, from videos of James’ father, Mr. Field’s actual writings, and third-party testimonials!)!

James Fields’ Registration with the Republican Party IS A SUBSTANTIVE F-A-C-T!… and like the F-A-C-T, that you don’t acknowledge same as a F-A-C-T! And the other F-A-C-T-S aside!… and, those yet to be offered up by Heavy’s bloggers!… James DID attend this P-R-O ALT-RIGHT/ DISTURBED WHITE SUPREMACIST EVENT! And!… and whether you C-A-R-E to acknowledge it, or not!… the Republican Party/ RNC/ GOP have provided Americans with some of the most S-H-A-M-E-F-U-L political views recorded in American political history; and so hence, the N-E-E-D T-O C-O-N-N-E-C-T T-H-E R-E-B-L-I-C-A-N D-O-T-S! Nevertheless!… and this touches on some of my personal speculations about James!… James has also had some “personal gaps” within his growth (or the lack thereof!), that could explain why he “fell into” his LOGICALLY-ESTRANGED POLITICS, in his quest to come up with some personal answers to life, and to help explain why “his life” has turned out for him, the way it has! James has had his DEVELOPMENTAL LEGS cut out from beneath him– and, with all due respect to his mother, and those who have “stood in” to help!… and therefore, it is VITAL that we secure a C-L-E-A-R picture of what this has meant to his outlook on life, and that/ which has cost the life of another human being! And so, we need to know what has gone on in his mind and what has “led” to these recent tragic events!… and if for no other reason, than to pay due respect to Heather Heyer, and to the other victims of these YET to be explained actions of James Alex Fields!

About 10 years ago a young man ran a red light in front of me and about 30 other cars. It caused a collision that totaled my car and broke my left hand. All he could say was “I panicked.” This incident made about the same amount of sense to me. Some people have no business driving motor vehicles!

Nevertheless!… for this incident– and based upon the testimonials so far!– to be but a case of panicky driving, is AN ERRONEOUS CONCLUSION! He has appeared to have allowed UNBALANCED ideologies and people, as R-A-T-I-O-N-A-L S-U-B-S-T-I-T-U-T-E-S! And, exhibits the signs of someone manifesting ANASTROPHOPATHY (i.e., Behavioral Pathy!), and the precursors to SOCIOPSYCHOPATHY!… and, from “POLITIOPATHY (i.e., from Political Pathy!)”… and “THELEMOPATHY (i.e., the Pathy of the “Will”!… see, the Greek usage, thelé_ma… and the URL, h-t-t-p://biblehub(dot)com/greek/2307.htm)! In other words, his behavior is “I-L-L”, and he’s in need of “TREATMENT”!…and to the extent that his “ILL BEHAVIOR” is not tied to some ‘BIOLOGIC PREDISPOSITION”, is RECOVERABLE! And… frankly!… a jail cell– although, punitive!– will not RESTORE James Alex Fields to a WHOLE STATE!… and it won’t bring back Heather Heyer, nor treat the suffering of James’ other victims! H*ll, jail won’t even provide an assessment of James for the benefit of the “PUBLIC INTEREST”!… and, one of the main reasons why I view jails, as DYSFUNCTIONAL INSTITUTIONS! Jails– as such!– should be under the “Model” of Healthcare!… P-E-R-I-O-D!

So he should be released? Placed in a mental hospital based on what you say “..based on the the testimonials so far…”,”..appeared..”, “..exhibits..”, and “…precursors..” alone? His, “..ILL BEHAVIOR..” is recoverable, so I would infer you agree based on media reports alone that he should be released in time, after a bit of hospitalization (reprogramming?)? By the same logic, Adolf Eichmann should never have been punished, but hospitalized for his crimes.

NO!… I didn’t suggest that he should be released!… and he isn’t Adolf Eichmann, or Adolf Eichmannish!

Look!… Rob!… I “metaphorically hear you”! And although I’m 100% convinced that James’ health is our PRIMARY CONCERN!… and as is, the health of James’ victims!… I am WELL AWARE of the A-B-U-S-E-S within our Healthcare Systems within America, and around the world! H*ll!… many within sundry “Healthcare professions” can’t even– UNANIMOUSLY!– agree on the definitions necessary for the articulation of the illnesses for which these have carriage! And when “these guys” can’t agree, then how are these to foster public support! Nevertheless!… Rob!… the O-N-L-Y W-A-Y out of our “social messes”… and, worldwide!… is to let HEALTHCARE lead the way!

am guessing mom and dad were 1st cousins. It’s Kentucky after all, where inbreeding doesn’t only happen to dogs. How can anyone GAS what happens to a statue of someone who was against America in a war to free people from being slaves? What kind of inbred idiot would care? Apparently there are plenty of inbred idiots in Kentucky.

Well I suggest you do a lot of research because the war was not about slavery until Lincoln made it about slavery. Lincoln was not the great emancipator as played out in indoctrinated history books. Please start out researching the history of slavery which was brought to this country in the year 1619. Then your first slave owner was Anthony Johnson who was by the way “black”. Slavery was allowed and done by colonists and on into the 1800’s. All states in America had slavery. The South succeeded because of the high tariffs and taxes the Lincoln administration wanted to put on them and was told if they didn’t pay that their land, homes, and all would be taken. So when they came after the lands of Southerners…that’s when and why the war started. Then Lincoln turned it into being about slavery when he decided to free slaves. You ever read the Emancipation Proclamation? It only freed slaves in the South, not in the North on the first proclamation. Look up Lincoln’s letter to Horace Creely, look up Lincoln’s speeches and quotes and see what he “actually said and felt” about slaves and blacks. Look up the Devil’s Punch Bowl, Natchez, Ms. where Lincoln allow Union soldiers to aid and let 20,000 “FREED” Blacks die. When you educated yourself about true Civil War history…then Please educate yourself about true Southern Culture. That way you won’t be the actual idiot when you are mouthing off about something.

Matthew Chapter 20 states:…
.
25) Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 26) Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27) and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— 28) just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

FORMAL CLASSICAL ASCRIPTION OF IDIOS
.
.
The Greek morpheme, idios (from the Greek, ἴδιος… for one’s own, personal, private!) is an expression that has been sorely abused, and misused, over centuries of “pejorative ascriptions” by countless thoughtless souls! The Greek “idios”, refers… PURELY!… to “one’s individuality”, or “one’s membership in the family of individuals”! To have subsumed this expression within the “pejorative ascriptions” that bend… yea, break!… the simple “linguistic morphemic narrative” of the word for “personal” and “individual”, is to impose an informal semantic colloquialism– indeed, slang!– that was never originally a part of the original “FORMAL ASCRIPTION” of/ for this term!
.
For example, the Greek suffixal morphemic element “-sis”, pertains to the “state”, “condition”, or “process” of something! When added to the term idios, we get the term IDIOSIS… i.e., the “state”, “condition”, or “process” of “one’s own person” or “one’s own individuality”! And!… when adding the adjectival suffixal morphemic element of -sis (i.e., “-tic”!… for “PERTAINING TO” the state, condition, or process of one’s own person or one’s own individuality!) to idios (creating “IDIOTIC”!), we run into a contemporary “pejorative ascription”, THAT HAS N-O-T-H-I-N-G T-O D-O WITH THE PROPER INTERPRETATION OF “IDIOTIC”!
.
According to the Bauer-Danker Lexicon, the noun ίδιωτής in ancient Greek, meant, “civilian (ref Josephus Bell 2 178)”/ “private citizen (ref sb 3924 9 25)”! What we’ve recieved, instead!… however!… is an IMPOSED “PEJORATIVE COLLOQUIAL/ SLANG” semantic ascription for this term, that TRASHES a meaning that was never a part of the CLASSICAL FORMAL NEOLOGISM! And compounding this etymologic confusion, are the problems associated with an attempt to add the Greek suffixal morphemic element, “etes”, and its variants (for agent!… and agency!)– such as, -et, -ete, -tes, -te, and even -t!– to idios! And so… when removing/ replacing the suffixal morphemic character -s from idios, and attempting to add the suffixal morphemic element -t (again… for agent, and agency!), we also run into this “PEJORATIVE ASCRIPTION”!… rather, than a NORMAL CLASSICAL ASCRIPTION, that reads, “an agent of one’s own person, or individuality”, or the “agency of one’s own person, or individuality”! And further, although one can simply add the suffixal morphemic element -ic (for “pertaining to”!… from the Greek, ik-os!… -ic, a softened, and clipped version of “ik” [the usage -os, referring to that which is “characteristic of”, or “abounding in”!]!) to idiot (to form “idiotic”!… i.e., “pertaining to one’s own personal agency”, or “pertaining to the agency of one’s own individuality”!)!… doing so, will result in the FOOLISH IMPOSITION/ juxtaposition of a PEJORATIVE COLLOQUIAL/ SLANG, that will render this otherwise useful term, useless!
.
This ABUSE of idios, has resulted in an inability to incorporate other simple suffixal morphemic elements which are based upon this CLASSICAL FORMAL term!… and, has meant the loss of several other possible Classical Formal Ascriptions for this word! And!… which could have– would have!– fostered our historic and contemporary knowledge and understanding of the notion of the PERSON!… the INDIVIDUAL! An utterly regrettable loss! And all due, unfortunately, to the preoccupation with MINDLESS PEJORATIVE ASCRIPTIONS by ILLITERATE BULLIES!… that is to say, thus far!
.
And so, YES!… I– like you!– am an “individual”!… a “person”!

Ha ha ha, I’m silly, well you know to a point you are right. I’m just silly enough to know things and/or do things.
I’m not a marshian, but I was abducted by an extra terrestrial intelligence that taught me a lot about our own planet, it’s people, and it’s history and they said I could teach anybody I wanted to and that I could use expressions like meds., crack pipe and such. They said I knew all about the Bible and that if I had anybody say any different to send them a telepathic wave and they would correct the problem. So I sent them your name and told them what you told me. I’m sorry but they made me do it. I hope you will be ok, I hope they just talk to you

Interesting, I just received this “message” that you should be putting a “.” between your paragraphs, to apply a spatial aesthetic, because this site– like many other sites!– “bunches up” paragraphs, in order to marginalize those who wish to prepare lengthier Comment Logs!… as “bunching” makes the Cloggers appear GOOFY!… and someone that we SHOULDN’T be reading (and, due only, to the length of the Clog!)! It’s YOUR CALL!… but, adding a “.” between paragraphs, will keep your paragraphs apart! Although… and in the past!… websites have deliberately implemented an algorithm that/ which has usurped my intentions, and have placed my “added periods”… along with my paragraphs!… into one big block!

Sorry, but my ET has been informed of your ways and has already spoken and been dispatched. They can not be recalled.
The first black slave owner in this country was Anthony Johnson.
George Washington owned slaves.
Abraham Lincoln was a white supremacist tyrant.
The Union (North) owned salves even after the South had freed theirs.
General U.S. Grant didn’t release his slaves for a long time because he said good help was hard to find.
BLM, KKK, and White Supremacy does not compute. They shall be abolished.

P.S. MARSHAIN!… you appear to be under the D-E-L-U-S-I-O-N that “Mom” is– in reality!– a “mom”!… and, an “old lady”! I– on the other hand!– am not under that misapprehension! And, maybe because I’ve been using this site for the length of time that I have! And as the “little old lady” has not rebuffed my direct and indirect description of “IT”, this has proven– to me at least!– that my assumption about who I was addressing was, and is, correct! That is to say, someone who– in the G-U-I-S-E of “mom”, and a “little old lady”!– is simply trying to pacify the REAL CRITICS of the S-O-C-I-O-P-S-Y-C-H-O-P-A-T-H-S who wish to support the N-O-N-S-E-N-S-E that was the “life and times” of Robert E.

My extra terrestrial friends told me I need to teach now. First off I am smart not delusional. Mom is a real mom. Mom was a little old lady. And Robert E. Lee was also an extra terrestrial being, that’s why his war strategies were so good. Oh, Bobby and his horsy are stuck in time by the extra terrestrial beings.
Just goes to show us a small number of how many immature people are still out there. I am Proud to be a Southerner but I have NO USE for White Sups, BLM, Antifa, And/or KKK The South has been blamed basically for all slavery and mistreatment of slaves, not true, actually far from it. Did any of it happen in the South, Yes it did, but no where near all of it. Everybody needs to step back, chill, and research and educate or re-educate about history better. There has been slavery almost as long as this world has been here. Research history, Blacks have captured and sold slaves centuries before whites did. The first major slave owner (if not the actual first slave owner) in this country was a black man, Antony Johnson. Research it, it is documented. Lincoln did not care about slaves, he cared about winning the Civil War so he turned it into a war about slavery to fit his agenda and beat the South economically. No you say, well then why did the the first Emancipation Proclamation ONLY free slaves in the states of the Confederacy? It did not free slaves in the Union states. Why did Lincoln send a letter to Horace Creely stating if keeping slavery going would keep the Union together he would keep slavery. Why did even Lincoln make the statement in a speech that he wanted to ship all slaves out of the Union and that he did not want blacks to intermingle with white people and that the determination should be made that WHITE People were the SUPREME RACE. Why did Lincoln let Sherman kill or let so many blacks die on his run of terror thru the South. Why did Lincoln let his Union soldiers let 20,000 FREE black men, women, and children die in the “Devil’s Punch Bowl” in Natchez, Ms? it’s all there in history and it’s ALL DOCUMENTED. Look it up and research it. It’s all true plus a lot more, look it up if your not scared of the truth. BLM, Antifa, White Subs., Kaykaykay, go back in your holes and stay out of things, y’all are uneducated bullies or just plain bullies.

You will NEVER make ignorant fools like john mayor understand the facts or truth. The libturd mind cannot distinguish between lies and truth, it is the reason that evil has such a strong foothold in this country. Mayor ends his rants with “…Jesus is Lord” when he has NO CLUE what that means – it’s equivalent to a libturd claiming to be a patriot or a muslime claiming islam is a religion of peace!

Gretchen, I will be nicer than the other two. I also don’t particularly like or agree with many of the BLM practices. Yet disagreeing with points that they make does NOT equate to a group that has a sole purpose of ostracizing an entire group of people based solely on the color of their skin. There are actually MANY Caucasian and non-African American members of BLM. I kid of don’t see the reverse being true for the KKK….. it’s kind of their entire point….SMDH. So your ignorance of the actual reality of the situation lends to the racist and stupid labels attached to you. Your “feelings” do not constitute fact. Try to actually research a subject before your ignorance becomes so evident. Peace.

The march was legal. The march was peaceful, there were only 200 marchers. Antifa and the others attacked them and they were bused in. The Mayor said on TV today, 90% of the rioters were bused in and not from this town or even the state. We find out now the original marchers tried to leave but the police told them if they didn’t go back the way they came they would be arrested. Why did they do that? They were met with bottles filled with urine, chemicals and sticks. Something really stinks here.

The media not reporting the facts that the march legal, why should they no story if they told the truth, put the blame where it belongs and the Left couldn’t be screaming Nationalism bad, Globalism good. But the facts are emerging. All those RINO etc that are angry at Trump for saying everyone to blame, will once again, find out he is right and when the full investigation done, it will be told the Alt Left Radicals are to blame.

‘We’re going to start standing up for our history’

In February, the city council voted to
remove the Lee statue, but that is on hold pending litigation. The
council also voted to rename two city parks that had been named for
Confederate generals; one of those, Emancipation Park, was due to be the
site of Saturday’s rally.

Jason Kessler, who organized
Saturday’s “Unite the Right” rally, said he doesn’t consider himself to
be a white nationalist. But, he said, “we’re going to start standing up
for our history.”

“The statue itself is symbolic of a
lot of larger issues. The primary three issues are preserving history
against this censorship and revisionism — this political correctness,”
he told CNN Friday.

“The second issue is being allowed to
advocate for your interests as a white person, just like other groups
are allowed to advocate for their interests politically. And finally,
this is about free speech. We are simply trying to express ourselves and
do a demonstration, and the local government has tried to shut us
down.”

So what part of any of the ridiculous comments you made above justifies the cowardly act of running over a defenseless crowd with a car. You are justifying racism and murder. And the statue in question was put up in 1924. That is 80 years after the traitorous Robert E Lee led the southern armies in revolt to try and keep the institution of slavery present in America. You sir are a racist. You may not know it. You may not care. But that is what your words say that you are.

Yadja’s contestations mayn’t have anything to do with Robert E. Lee… I think Yadja has this “thing” for Bobby’s horse! And I’ll bet you donkeys for elephants that Yadja has wrapped boxes of “My Little Pony” gifts stashed in a closet, or buried in a backyard! In fact!… I think Yadja’s a closet “horsey lover”! And so, maybe the Governor of Virginia will agree to excise Bobby from his ride, patch it up, and then pass it on to Yadja as a further “PONY COLLECTIBLE”!

“Really bad writing skills for whomever wrote this.” – This is not a sentence.
“It had the style of a high school newspaper report.” – The wrong tense is used.
