Massive Resistance by Progressives Leads to Violence, Finally Gets Media Attention

8/12/17 Daily Mail:
Violence erupted ahead of a planned rally where thousands of white nationalists were expected to gather for an alt-right protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday.
Two people were seriously injured in the clash, Virginia State police reported. A video appears to show the altercation, as a man is being dragged away by officials while a woman screams: 'Don't allow them to do this!'
Another woman with blood streaming down her face also pushes the man away from the scene of the fight.
The Unite the Right rally is being held at Emancipation Park and hundreds were seen stomping through the city, wearing militia uniforms, waving flags and chanting 'Blood and Soil' as they made their way towards the event.
Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer denounced the 'cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance march down the lawns of the architect of our Bill of Rights' and warned for residents to stay away from the rally.
Still, counter-protesters flocked to the march in retaliation against the white nationalists neo-Confederates, and alt-right activists, screaming: 'We're here, we're gay, we fight the KKK!'
The protest hadn't officially started but social media videos showed the rally was escalating as people were seen throwing objects, breaking out into fights and pepper spray being used, as officers watched from behind fences.
