Nazis, Klan Members, Alt-Right Supporters Rally In Virginia Over Removal Of Confederate Statue

A month after a Ku Klux Klan rally here ended with the police using tear gas on protesters , Charlottesville is bracing for a weekend of white nationalist demonstrations and counterprotests, and suddenly this tranquil college town feels like a city under siege. Thousands of people - many from out of town - are expected to descend on the city to either protest or participate in a "Unite the Right" rally on Saturday convened by white nationalists who oppose a plan to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general, from a city park.
