LOOP: White racist rally in Virginia gets violent



CHARLOTTESVILLE // Angry white racists, Klansmen, and neo-Nazis marched in Charlottesville, Va., Saturday to protest the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Also present were counterprotesters from a violent group called “antifa.” A young white nationalist from Ohio drove his car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing a young woman and injuring 19 others. The Justice Department is investigating if others were involved in the car attack. http://cvote.it/2vAiBbv

MARRIAGE // “In recent years there has been plenty of research documenting the addictive powers of porn and its ability to ruin sexual intimacy. But it’s eye-opening to hear it from lawyers who document the couples’ stories, from ‘I do’ to the piles of paperwork at the end,” writes Monica Gabriel Marshall. http://cvote.it/2vA2Y3R

  1. What reputable news organization is reporting that “antifa” we’re at Charlottesville? Was this not reported by The Rebel, a Canadian alt right website? Are you really parroting the alt right?!?

    Lol. The neo-Nazis and white supremacists are angry, and those protesting Nazis are violent. Why is it that this website repeats whatever Donald Trump says? Heck, I would have settled for inane moral equivalency between Nazis and those fighting Nazis, but you’ve set it up even more lopsided.
