The “Unite The Right” rally of white nationalists ended up being a complete dud, though far more angry antifa counter protesters showed up to cause mayhem. The Daily Wire reports:
Protests designed to mark the one-year anniversary of the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia — which left a counter-protester and a state trooper dead — turned violent Saturday night when black-clad members of Antifa joined what was supposed to be a rally for peace.
A group of Antifa protesters went after NBC News reporter Cal Perry as he tried to cover the march, leading to a harrowing scene.
