Civil War II-- 512: KKK and Protesters Meet in Charlottesville

July 8, 2017, Yahoo! News  "KKK marchers in Virginia met by throngs of counter-protesters"  A.F.B.  by Sebasien Blane.

"Supporters of white supremacist Ku Klux Klan marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday to protest the planned removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee...."

Police kept the two groups separated, but there were lots of chants back and forth, some not so nice.  And there was not-so-nice language as well.

Fortunately, there were no shootings.  This is what I really worry about whenever flashpoints of idiots (both sides) like this occur, especially with one of the groups being the KKK.

The name of Lee Park has already been changed (which puts Charlottesville in line for lower case (c)harlottesville and a boycott by me).  But as long as the statue remains in place, the city hasn't shamed itself so will stay capitalized.

The anti-Confederate protesters have already vandalized the Lee statue as is their usual mode of operation.
