No room in U.S. for ‘neo-nazism’ - Ivanka Trump

Schoep also addressed the Charlottesville, Virginia incident and said his group, "acted in self defense ... we are not the ones creating the violence".

The event descended into violence, with clashes erupting between attendees and counterprotesters.

The tweet's language was similar to his first response to the tragedy previous year, after neo-Nazis, Klansman, and other racists descended on the small Virginia, which resulted in one woman's death after a Nazi sympathizer rammed his vehicle into a crowd of people.

A number of downtown business owners told WHSV's sister station, WCAV, that the response seems like "overkill" from the state trying to make up for what happened previous year.

The police chief said he wants a day in which "Nobody gets injured and nothing gets broke".

"This puts M.P.D.in a very precarious position", Newsham said, adding that officers will be "on high alert for anyone carrying a firearm".

"We have a number of techniques to keep them separate", Newsham said.

With hundreds of police maintaining a tight security perimeter around a 15-block downtown area, Charlottesville's normally bustling business district was relatively quiet on Saturday.

While Americans are blessed to live in a nation that protects liberty, freedom of speech and diversity of opinion, there is no place for white supremacy, racism and neo-nazism in our great country.

University of Virginia students started their own march for justice on Saturday night chanting, "Hey, hey, UVA who will you exploit today" and "No Nazis, no KKK, no fascist United States of America".

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

Ryan recalled how a group of students and community members faced off against the white supremacists near a statue of Thomas Jefferson on campus, calling it a "remarkable moment of courage and bravery".

Kessler, who is from Charlottesville, submitted an additional request for a permitted rally in his hometown at a monument to Confederate General Robert E. Lee, but was denied.

Participants wielded torches, chanted white nationalist slogans and eventually engaged in fighting with anti-fascist counter-protestors. Fields faces one federal hate crime, along with 28 additional charges.

On Thursday, the National Park Service approved a permit for a Unite the Right Rally in D.C.'s Lafayette Park.

State and local authorities framed this weekend's heightened security as a necessary precaution, but some community activists are concerned the measures could be a counterproductive overreaction.

Two state police personnel - Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates - died in a helicopter crash responding to the scene.

US President Donald Trump, often accused of denigrating non-white people, said Saturday that he condemned racism as the nation marked the anniversary of deadly unrest triggered by a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

It activated the Virginia Emergency Operations Center to coordinate state resources and allocated $2 million to pay for the state's response. Numerous street closures and parking restrictionswill also take effect.

More than 700 Virginia State Police personnel alone are trained and ready to be assigned if the need arises, Virginia State Police Colonel Gary T. Settle said.
