Racist plows car in the counter-protesters

I don't know big words. They took my phone.
(US News Today) Pres. Trump addresses white supremacist rally -- with someone else tweeting for him and writing things for him to read with words that are too big for his small understanding -- after clashes between racists and protesters in Charlottesville.
White nationalist rally linked to 3 deaths

Excuse me, sir. Are you an n-word?
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia - A racist driver plowed a car into a crowd of anti-racists peacefully counter-demonstrating a white nationalist rally today.

It happened [Saturday, Aug. 12th, 2017] in a Virginia college town, killing one person, hurting more than a dozen others, and ratcheting up tension in a day full of violent confrontations.

Shortly after, a Virginia State Police helicopter that officials said was assisting with the rally crashed outside Charlottesville, killing the pilot and a trooper.

The chaos boiled over at what is believed to be the largest group of white nationalists [hate filled neo-Nazis, KKK members, and white supremacists] to come together in a decade.

We're the new KKK! No more racism?
The governor declared a state of emergency, and police dressed in riot gear [beat people, sprayed them with toxic chemicals, and] ordered people out. The group had gathered to protest plans to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, and others arrived to protest the racism.
KKK does not joke: secede
Matt Korbon, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student, said several hundred counter-protesters were marching when "suddenly there was just this tire screeching sound." A silver Dodge Challenger smashed into another car, then backed up, barreling through "a sea of people."
We should be killing Koreans not each other!
The impact hurled people into the air. Those left standing scattered, screaming and running for safety in different directions.

The driver was later identified by police as James Alex Fields Jr. of Ohio. Police say Fields, 20, has been charged with second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count related to leaving the scene. More+ PHOTOS
