    2 of 3 dead so far are apparently police officers that were shot out of the sky by klansmen they were in a helicopter that was surveying the riot. Nothing officially confirmed yet, other than 2 dead in a helicopter crash 7 miles away from the riot. Police are not even confirming that it was a police helicopter for some reason, despite several witnesses saying they saw a police helicopter turn upside and fall out of the sky.

    Default Freedom Road Socialist Organization condemns white supremacist attack in Charlottesvi

    via fightbacknews.org

    Freedom Road Socialist Organization condemns the racist right-wing attack that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12.
    Protesters opposing a white supremacist ‘Unite the Right’ rally faced a vicious attack. As protesters gathered near a downtown mall in Charlottesville, a grey car drove at high speed into the crowd of activists, killing at least one and injuring at least 19 others.
    This sickening crime is part of the rise in white supremacists since the election of Donald Trump. His presidency has emboldened forces like white nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and the KKK. The protesters in Charlottesville were correct to oppose these forces, and everyone who loves peace, freedom and equality should continue to oppose this racist and reactionary movement by whatever means fitting and necessary.
    Across the country, organizers are calling for emergency actions to stand in solidarity with the people of Charlottesville, and Freedom Road Socialist Organization calls upon the entire movement to support those in Charlottesville anyway they can. Those of us fighting for a better world must continue to oppose right-wing bigots and oppose white supremacists in whatever guise they take. All of our thoughts and concerns turn towards the people of Charlottesville as we continue the fight for peace and justice in an unjust world. The racists and reactionaries will pay for their crimes.

    There are local news sites over on the other coast that are picking up the helicopter crash as killing 2 which is being reported as separate from the 3 dead and 26 injured due to the car crash. I'm also seeing the 1 reported dead article as being an initial article that wasn't going to be updated.

    Only 1 dead from the car crash so far, a few people confirming through social media they've been released already, a member of the DSA was released with a broken leg, another with head lacerations youcaring crowdfunding has already started for their medical bills. No word yet on the rest or how many are in critical condition

    Liberals are to blame for this.

    Disgusting acts and a beautiful young life lost. Liberals from all over the country are condemning it but her blood is on their hands.

    They're complicit, along with every disgusting fascist that took part in that demonstration. They write checks that actual leftists have to cash. But where are they when the shit goes down?

    Remember...liberals defend fascists. Always have. Always will.

    I'm not sure I expected anything else but there seems to be a major black out in media coverage or media coverage on official responses.

    It's great that the press and mainstream is giving trump a little shit for his "many sides" comment but, yeah, also hypocritical that the same republican and democratic politicians and pundits have been saying the same thing for months. Official liberalism burped up op-eds about "illiberal leftists," horse-shit horseshoe theories, and tailing the right's claims about "free speech".

    But my hope is that we don't have to wait for more tragedies before the reality of the threat drives a wedge between the delusions of professional liberal political/media layer and average people who call or think of themselves as liberals.

    Our organizing should be aimed at winning those folks to our side. We knew the threat and IWW, DSA, and ISO comrades were hit in the attack. This is what the liberal "let them speak and expose themselves" looks like. They exposed their "silly ideas" and fucking killed an IWW comrade, beat up black folks and attacked antifa marchers. Dylann Roof Golden Dawn and a mass shooting at a socialist youth camp (both pre-trump, contrary to the liberal's explanation of the attack) "exposed" the new fascists to be little different in their aims than those of the past.

    Official liberalism has no solid explanation or solutions for this specifically right now. We need to organize and convince average liberals to move left and actively work to stop both Trump and the far-right rather than rely on Democrats or Russiagate-deliverance.

    Default What's New: It’s Not About Bigotry On All Sides. It’s About White Supremacists

    via socialistproject.ca

    I sat here listening to Trump’s remarks in connection with the violence carried out by neofascists in Charlottesville this afternoon, violence which has resulted in the death of at least one anti-fascist. He condemned bigotry on what he called all sides. Once again Trump obscures reality. He either ignores the violence and terrorism carried out against traditionally oppressed groups, e.g., attacks on mosques, or he uses evasive language in order to avoid pointing the finger at the real perpetrators of racist violence.

    Anonymous hacktivists have been going a little crazy they shutdown the daily stormer website (it's still shutdown as of now). GOdaddy has agreed to stop providing them service as well. The killer was photographed with a vanguard america flag. People have been frantically tracing the identities of all the nazis that were attendance, a few of them have gotten fired from their jobs. There was an attempted copycat attack on solidarity protesters in Montreal, no injuries and the guy was arrested, so not alot of news coverage. 682 "solidarity with charlottesville" marches planned (or occurred) so far including one in vietnam

    I like seeing this gathering of people against fascism but I also express concern with the identity politics focus that many of these gatherings took on. What's also making me a little uneasy is the level of nationalism that can be measured from many of these statements from the counter-protesters. Most of these statements have some glorification of the US nation or make overtures to a sort of liberal nationalism.

    Nationalism is the most underhanded psyop the world has ever seen. It is a secular religious devotion cloaked in "rationality" since it isn't based in the supernatural. It is based in tribalism and promotes fealty to an institution that only really exists on pieces of paper and in the hearts and minds of its devout followers. The people are only unified by some imaginary lines on maps and much less so by some vague idea of culture which has been nearly nullified by the post-modern blending of cultures within those imaginary map lines. Flags and other symbols (like the bald eagle) serve as iconography for the religion. The bent-truth histories that are taught about them serve as the mythos of the faith while the constitutions are the Holy Books. The cult-of-personality cast of historical characters act as the messiahs and prophets while the modern characters are the priests and clerics. There are the religious traditions of voting, celebrating the different birthdays of these characters, and solemnly remembering the pious days of "sacrifice" such as Sept 11 and Dec 7 in the US.

    It is the most popular religion on the planet boasting upwards of 7 billion and it is so subversive and passive in its existence that barely anyone recognizes the danger in it. You'll even find overtures to nationalism in many faux-leftist groups. It is the sad devotion to this religion of nationalism that makes international collaboration along class lines so difficult. Even working class people who are starting to understand the contradictions of the capitalist system and grow more comfortable with socialism and working class action are suspicious of the idea of undermining the nation state system in any way. It is one of the bedrocks of the Alex Jones, Steven Bannon program and how they turn potential revolutionaries into fascist tools. It's also why so many potential leftists think that the Bernie Sanders program and other faux-leftism is the only "realistic" way forward.

    I think talking about nationalism and the flaws of the nation state system are one of the most important things that socialists can do at this stage. It is especially important given the situation in North Korea which many potential leftists and working class are in support of because of nationalistic fervor! I believe it is apropos to bring it up in this article's comments because so many of these potential leftists and agitators are speaking the language of nationalists and are likely doing it unconsciously (which speaks volumes to the pervasiveness of the nationalist faith).
