The following video is disturbing in nature.
It depicts an unknown assailant ramming two slow-moving cars through a group of protestors who had gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia to object to the recent words and actions of White Supremacists in the area.
After the car slams on the gas and plows other vehicles into this contingent of civilians, it hits reverse and speeds up in the opposite direction, hitting other individuals along the way.
At the moment, one person is reported dead and 19 injured as a result of this terrorist act.
Chaos has broken out in Charlottesville after modern day Nazis marched through the University of Virginia campus on Friday night, chanting epithets and yelling that “White Lives Matter.”
They did so in response to the removal of a statue of late Civil War General Robert E. Lee.
The following morning, counter protestors took to the streets of this city, which is now under an official state of emergency, per Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.
In response to the civil unrest, President Donald Trump said a bunch of meaningless cliches and refused to point any fingers at the White Nationalists for their points of view or their violent actions.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,” Trump said in a short statement from his private golf club in New Jersey.
“It has been going on for a long time in our country – not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America.”
The Commander-in-Chief did not mention White Supremacists or the the alt-right movement in his remarks, and later called for a “study” of the “situation.”
Take a look below at the tragic incident that took these protests to a new and fatal level:
