{Video of Assault} $10,000 Reward Offered For Info Leading To Arrest Of Men Who Attacked DeAndre Harris

(SL) – Donald Trump seems to think that among a group of racists white supremacists shouting “Jews will not replace us” where good people. I wonder if he’s referring to this racists individuals who attacked DeAndre Harris during the Charlottesville protests.

Video is now circulating showing the attack in full living color and it is a blessing that this young man is still alive.  Harris suffered many injuries and no arrests have been made.

Deandre Harris Says White Supremacists Were Definitely Trying To Kill Him

(SL) – We’ve all seen the photo of a young black male bleeding profusely from the head after being attacked by white supremacists in Charlottesville. We now know who he is. Twenty-year old  Deandre Harris moved to Charlottesville, Va., from Suffolk, Va., two years ago for a job opportunity as an Instructional Assistant in the special education program at a local high school.

But as The Root reports nothing could prepare him for what he experienced Saturday afternoon, when he took part in a counter protest against the “Unite The Right” white supremacy marches that took place in the city.

Zach D. Roberts captured that photo that shows Harris being beaten with poles by the white nationalists.

The shocking photo immediately went far and wide, and although Harris received multiple injuries, he says that he’s thankful to be alive to tell his story.

 “Me and about five of my friends were out protesting. We thought [the racists] left, but at one point they came back. Everyone was exchanging words with the group, but then the KKK and white supremacists just rushed us,” Harris told The Root in an interview.

“They were beating me with poles. I have eight staples in my head, a broken wrist and a chipped tooth,” Harris said.

Harris said if it wasn’t for his friends who noticed him under the pile of white supremacists and helping him, he probably wouldn’t be alive to tell his story. Harris is in the process of pressing charges and the photographer who took the photo is helping his mother identify the racists who took part in the attack.

After the photo made its rounds on social media, many people noticed that the parking garage where the assault took place was right near the Charlottesville police department. And of course, we know how this story goes.

“The beating happened right beside the police department, and no police were there to help me at all. My mother is now thinking about suing the city of Charlottesville,” Harris said.

Although freedom of speech protects even the most vile of humans, Harris is still confused as to why the town let the rally happen.

“I think for them to be allowed to come here and protest is really crazy. How do you expect the KKK to come to your city to protest, and them not be violent? I understand everyone is entitled to their freedom of speech, but the government and the mayor made a bad business move. It’s only caused havoc in your own city. It’s crazier that people have the hatred in their heart to want to kill black people,” Harris stated.

Harris’ friends and family created a GoFundMe to help with his medicalexpenses, but there is no amount of money that could take away the trauma the 20-year-old experienced Saturday afternoon.

James Baldwin once said, “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” The violence that erupted in Charlottesville over the last 48 hours has been the face of America since the beginning of time.

It’s gone from being cloaked in white masks to crisp Walmart and Target polos, but until those so-called allies stand up to their racist counterparts, nothing will change.

{Video} Poor Leadership, Car Plows Into Crowd, Trump Dancing Around Domestic Nazi Terrorism That Claimed A Life And Injured Dozens In Charlottesville Protest

(SL) – “Hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.” ~ Donald Trump 

He criticized Barrack Obama for not using the words Radical Islamic Terrorists but we’re still waiting on him to identify the lipstick on the pigs that ran a muck in Charlottesville. White Supremacy, White Nationalists…say it TRUMP.

Or are you avoiding the language because for all intents and purposes you lit the fire on the top of every torch they carried through the city. David Duke certainly didn’t mince words when he said, “We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said from the rally, calling it a “turning point.We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what we believed in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back.”

Not surprised by Donald Trump’s response or lack there of after calling for law and order during his campaign and waking the David Dukes in the world.  Trump has called for violence publicly and has welcomed the support of the KKK, so the fact that white nationalists feel emboldened right now is fitting.

David Duke, the former KKK grand wizard, is unambiguous about what Saturday’s alt-right and neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, means to him: It’s the fulfillment of President Trump’s vision for America.

When Trump tweeted “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”

David Duke responded, “I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists.”

One person who isn’t afraid to stand up to the KKK, Nazis or White Supremacists is Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe CBS Reports he decried the supporters of white nationalism who descended upon Charlottesville during a press conference Saturday, after protests there left one dead and more than 30 injured in clashes earlier in the day.

“You pretend that you are patriots, but you are anything but a patriot,” McAuliffe, flanked by Charlottesville’s mayor and police chief, said in a message to white nationalists.

“We are stronger than you,” the Democratic governor added. “You have made our commonwealth stronger. You will not succeed. There is no place for you here.”

McAuliffe said he had spoken to President Trump earlier in the day. Mr. Trump declined to name white supremacists or any specific group, saying violence “on many sides” was to blame. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colorado), urged the president to “call evil by its name,” and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah followed with similarly tough statements.

Mr. Trump ignored a question from a reporter as to what he would say to white supremacists who voiced support for him Saturday.

The already-violent protests turned deadly when a car plowed into a sea of counter-protesters Saturday. The incident — which is being treated as a criminal homicide investigation — left an unidentified 32-year-old woman dead and 19 others injured. An additional 15 people were hurt in separate incidents.

“This day will not define us,” Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer said.

The “Unite the Right” rally was originally supposed to protest the removal of a statute of confederate General Robert E. Lee.
