Former Far-Right Extremist Says "Unite The Right" Rally Organizers Planned For Violence - 2021-11-02
Right-wing death squads and RaHoWa. The OK hand gesture and "see Kyle." Soldering weapons to flag poles and debating whether they could legally ram counterprotesters with vehicles if they got in their way.
A former extremist on Tuesday gave the jury a crash course on white supremacist terminology and codes, and she provided frightening insight into one of the alt-right groups being sued in federal court as the "Unite the Right" civil trial in Charlottesville continued into a second week. Her deposition was followed by testimony from one of the neo-Nazi defendants, who discussed the monthslong planning effort for the deadly rally that included his failed attempts to draw in other hate groups from around the world.
Those developments followed a wild first week in court in which a contentious jury selection went a day longer than expected, defendants representing themselves in court went off the rails, and the first plaintiff to testify gave an emotional account of being run over by a sports car driven by one of the white supremacists she's suing for damages in the landmark case.
