>On Tuesday, jurors found the primary organizers of the deadly Charlottesville rally liable under state law for injuries to counterprotesters, granting the plaintiffs more than $25 million in damages. Known as the “Unite the Right” rally, the August 2017 event took place in reaction to the removal of a Confederate monument, something known to make racists extremely angry. The rally brought together a who’s who of bigots, including neo-Confederates, neo-fascists, white nationalists, Klansmen, various right-wing groups, and neo-Nazis. On the night of August 11, numerous people marched through the University of Virginia campus waving Confederate flags and chanting white supremacist slogans like “Jews will not replace us!” The action continued the following day when self-identified neo-Nazi James Fields intentionally drove his car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one and injuring 35 others, many of them extremely seriously. (Fields, one of the defendants who was found liable on Tuesday, pleaded guilty in 2019 to 29 federal hate crimes and is currently serving several life sentences.) The case was brought by nine plaintiffs who said that in addition to physical injuries—including three concussions and a skull fracture—they suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, leading to insomnia, panic attacks, and flashbacks.

It will go like this… Trump yesterday: lovely man, great philanthropist Trump today: never heard about the guy, from what I have been told, a nasty piece of work.

Probably Trump: Don’t pay the $25 Million! Only losers pay. Also Trump: Where’s a flag to fuck?
