"We Are No Charlottesville" - Anti-Monument Agitators Shut Down During Day of Protests in Richmond
again, Richmond, State and Capitol police are to be commended for their
swift and certain actions, careful planning, and willingness to enforce
the law yesterday. We had worked closely with law enforcement in the
weeks leading up to September 16, and are grateful for their
Thel Black Lives Matter /Antifa/take em down crowd was tuned back at each monument they
attempted to swarm yesterday and sent back to VCU to march through their
own turf. Troublemakers were quickly
arrested and a clear message sent that RVA is not Charlottesville and
will not tolerate chaos and mayhem. Four were people wearing masks in
public, two people were arrested for weapons charges, and one was
arrested for disorderly conduct. No one was injured.
At last check at dawn this morning, RVA
Monument Guards reported NO vandalism at any of the Confederate
memorials and a continued police presence. Considering the number of
monuments that stand in the Capital of the Confederacy, and the number
of communist anti-monument agitators in town yesterday, that is
something we can all can be very proud of.
Va Flaggers offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to our local
law enforcement officers. They patiently endured the taunts, rude
behavior and profanity from the anti monument crowd, protected any
monument supporters, and made sure our memorials were not touched.
