It is August 2017 and currently the fucking Nazis are marching in Charlottesville, Virginia. It started yesterday night with these assholes turning up with fucking tiki-torches and marching through the campus of the University of Virginia. They were also carrying swastika flags and performing Heil Hitler salutes.
Today things turned violent when a car rammed into a group of counter-protestors, killing at least one. Also very suspicious is that a bunch of these assholes have turned up in full combat militia gear, more or less posing as national guard members
All of this makes me sick to my stomach. I am not american, but as an austrian who has to live with the legacy of the Nazi party and what it has done to my country in the past and the lingering elements that still persist, even though it is outlawed, has me absolutely disgusted with the situation.
We live in dark times with the global resurgence of right-wing extremism. Am glad to see so many people around the planet also outraged and people on the ground counter-protesting and telling these assholes to fuck off. I am looking for a way to donate some money to a good cause opposed to this Nazi scum and would be open to suggestions, as well as other things I could do here from austria.
