"The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division".

Black Lives Matter also have a permit for counter-protests.

What resulted was hundreds of violent clashes between white nationalists, neo-Nazis, KKK members armed with flaming torches and counter protesters. James Alex Fields, Jr.is charged with driving his auto into a group of counter-protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of people.

Saturday marked the anniversary of a march by torch-toting white supremacists a day ahead of the larger event in downtown. "But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides".

Manigaults allegations have been received with both skepticism and schadenfreude considering Trump's race-baiting and well-chronicled denigration of women. Some Republican lawmakers also pushed back, although initial statements by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell didn't mention Trump by name.

Christopher Malone, a political-science professor and dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Molloy College, said Trump's racially charged outbursts are part of a calculated effort to appeal to whites, especially those with a sense of cultural grievance, and is best expressed through his campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again". During a "Bikers for Trump" event in Bedminster New Jersey, the President told reporters that Manigault Newman was a "lowlife".

"We are treating this as a statewide event", Jeffrey Stern, state coordinator of the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, said at a news conference Wednesday.

"Our goal is to prevent that from occurring". Bro's desk at the Heather Heyer Foundation sports one of Heyer's favorite sayings: "If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention".

Local and state authorities framed the weekend's heightened security as a necessary precaution. Organizers of the alt-right rally likewise warned attendees to not bring firearms or other weapons, including pepper spray, clubs, knives and shields. This Sunday, the same group will be hosting another gathering in Washington, DC.

As the anniversary of last year's deadly Charlottesville riots approaches, states of emergency have been declared for the city of Charlottesville, parts of Northern Virginia and the state of Virginia. "They wanted people to fight so they could deny us our First Amendment rights". "We want to be in the streets before they get there".

The Shut it Down D.C. Coalition, comprised of 38 organizations and community groups, meets regularly to plan counter attacks to the white nationalists.
