CNN did an article earlier about it actually.

Why Charlottesville?
Like many cities, Charlottesville has grappled with what to do with its Confederate monuments -- symbols of the Civil War that represent heritage to some, hate to others.

In April, the city council voted to remove the bronze statue of Lee, CNN affiliate WVIR reported. It was one of several steps Charlottesville is taking to reduce its Confederate monuments. The removal is on hold pending litigation.

The city became an ideal protest site for white nationalists.

"This entire community is a very far left community that has absorbed these cultural Marxist principles advocated in college towns across the country, about blaming white people for everything," said Jason Kessler, who organized the "Unite the Right" rally.
Kessler, a Charlottesville resident, blames what he calls "the anti-white hatred that's coming out of the city."

Although other cities such as New Orleans, St. Louis and Austin have contended with the Confederate monuments issue, it is Charlottesville where the rallies are happening.
"Charlottesville has kind of been put on the map recently," Mayor Mike Signer said last month. "We want to change the narrative by telling the true story of race through public spaces. That has made us a target for groups that hate that change and want to stay in the past, but we will not be intimidated."

Counter protestors give them the attention they crave. They won't be swayed from being racists. Best to ignore them really.

EDIT:
In sum, rallies like these are essentially invitations for conflict. Obviously far more people disagree with them than agree. They only want to piss everyone off and make themselves look like martyrs of an oppressed minority. Don't give them that.

It scares them from coming out. If there's no resistance then more will keep appearing. You don't beat fascism by ignoring it.

They're a few thousand Nazis marching through a college campus with lit torches chanting genocidal slogans.

I feel like saying "oh, they just want attention" might be a little bit complacent. This is really happening.

The only thing I know about Charlottesville is that Chris Chan lives there. He has some weird racial hang ups too so I figure it's widely common over there.

lol remember when the alt right claimed an economic , moral and political high ground? I guess the loose temptation of mouth breathing proved too fruitful.


Hey alt-right. Turns out you were just racist after all. Enjoy your plateau.

They're expecting and are looking for overwhelming pushback. The point is these types thrive off of pissing off liberals and "SJWs".

They have no real power or number in a city like Charlottesville anyway. Its a call for a controversial reaction from a mostly liberal town which will draw eyes to them and perhaps validation and sympathy through that reaction for being the little guy outnumbered by society. Thats their goal.

With the torches, it almost looks like they're coming together for something positive. That level of solidarity is frightening.


So many there too, think how many of those people are cops, judges or even just store managers with some level of power to effect a non-white persons life in a fucked up negative way.
