Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has declared a state of emergency in the city, after the alt-right, white nationalists making up the “Unite the Right” rally at Emancipation Park dissolved into a hellish, chaotic scene. House Speaker Paul Ryan issued a strong statement on social media, condemning the rally participants. He tweeted, “The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant. Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry.” Fights broke out hours before a protest was scheduled in Charlottesville’s Emancipation Park, where white supremacists, white nationalists and alt-right groups were gathering to protest the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Saturday’s rally followed a Friday night protest in which hundreds of white nationalists carrying torches marched through the campus of the University of Virginia.
