'Unite the Right 2018': Far right, anti-racists to descend on DC

Taking, as ever, to Twitter, the 45th President of the United States referred to last year's incidents as "senseless death and division" and urged the entire nation to come together as one.

"He's calling for unity among all Americans and he denounced all forms of bigotry and acts of violence and racism", Conway said on ABC's "This Week". "Peace to ALL Americans!" the president tweeted.

Around 20 demonstrators headed to a white nationalist rally walked through the heart of Washington on Sunday, cordoned by rows of police officers and outnumbered by hundreds of counterprotesters who taunted them.

'If you rush to heal, if you rush to everybody grab each other and sing kumbaya, we will be back here in a few years, ' she said.

McAuliffe said he was stunned by President Donald Trump's claim that everyone was at fault for the chaos of the 2016 protest in his state where a white supremacist rammed a vehicle into a crowd of counter-demonstrators, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

One year after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, left a counterprotester dead, the event's organizer is producing an encore.

Organized by Unite the Right - the same network that called last year's protest in Charlottesville, Virginia - Sunday's rally will once again see the extremists stand face-to-face with anti-fascists, who are staging a counter protest. There will be a "Still Here, Still Strong" protest and march by a coalition of groups, including survivors of the Charlottesville auto attack; a "Rise Up and Fight Back Counter-Protest", hosted by Black Lives Matter DC; and a Trans and Queer #ResistDance Against White Supremacy. "I'm not a neo-Nazi", Kessler said as a train his group boarded in suburban Virginia rolled towards Washington. Authorities eventually forced the crowd to disperse, but a auto later barreled into a crowd of peaceful counterprotesters, killing Heyer and injuring dozens more. This year they come w/ badge" and chanted "Why are you in riot gear?

According to the BBC, Johnson's supporters defended his remarks , saying that he was simply sticking up for "liberal values". An independent panel will be convened to review the complaints.

Bro also thanked Virginia State Police for their presence and sacrifice, leaving flowers for the two officers, Lt. H. Jay Cullen and trooper-pilot Berke M.M. Bates, who were killed in a helicopter crash related to last year's events.

Jason Kessler abandoned plans for a similar anniversary event in Charlottesville.

Some say they had hoped for better relations this year.

Law enforcement officials faced blistering criticism in the aftermath of last year's rally for what was perceived as a passive response to the violence that unfolded. For example, the Shut It Down D.C. Coalition is producing a "Still Here, Still Strong" rally to counter "Unite the Right 2" starting at noon Sunday. Controversy also surrounded the planned removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a downtown park.

A prominent neo-Nazi Internet troll labeled the "Unite the Right 2" rally in Washington DC a strategic blunder, and said it was no longer wise or safe for white supremacists to hold public rallies.

"If we ignore them, they think they have won because they have had the...playing field all to themselves".
