Charlottesville Vice-Mayor Cheers Violent Clashes With Police - Pledges to Help Antifa Terrorists
During a rally in Charlottesville over the weekend, counter-protests turned violent. Counter-protesters reportedly blocked streets , chanted obscenities, threw bottles at and even sprayed law enforcement officers with pepper spray. Charlottesville police arrested twenty-two individuals, who were charged with everything from obstructing justice to felony assault of a police officer.
Richmond's local Antifa group , Antifa Seven Hills, praised the actions of those who were arrested, and posted a request for help in paying their legal expenses, and calling for Charlottesville Mayor Signer to drop all charges.
Disgraced Charlottesville Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy, who has led the push to attempt to remove the Lee and Jackson monuments in Charlottesville, instead of supporting his Police Chief and those who kept order on Saturday, made it clear that he sides with the violent protesters in his comments, shown below.
Antifa, an abbreviation of AntiFascist, is a world wide movement that purportedly exists to fight for the rights of the downtrodden against fascists. There is a huge disconnect between their stated beliefs and their acts and behavior. In truth, like most leftists, they are motivated by devotion to violence, destruction, and chaos.
Bellamy has pledged to "work on" getting charges dropped against protesters who assaulted police officers.
He has chosen to side with anarchists who have this to say about Richmond (RPD) and VCU police officers:
When tweets by Bellamy surfaced that were racist, homophobic, and vulgar surfaced, Bellamy was quickly forced to resign from his teaching position at Albermarle County Schools and his position on the State Board of Education. In contrast, Charlottesville City Council, along with many of the city's leftist activists, embraced Bellamy and not only refused to force him to resign, but have gone out of their way to express their support for him and any agenda he proposes, including his attempts to illegally remove historical monuments.
We hope and pray this blind devotion will end now that a sitting City Council member has publicly chosen to side with cop haters over the Charlottesville Police Department, who, according to eye witness accounts, acted in a professional manner to ensure the safety of Charlottesville residents.
Finally, we can't help but end by reminding our readers that the blame for ALL of the chaos, renewed racial tensions, and growing divide in Charlottesville, rests squarely on the soldiers of Kristen Szakos and Wes Bellamy, and their campaign to destroy our history and heritage.
