Charlottesville Protests: Victim And Driver Both Identified In Horrific, Deadly Vehicle Attack

We're now learning more about the attack on anti-racist protesters that took place yesterday afternoon in Charlottesville, Virginia, as both the attacker and the lone victim killed in the attack have been identified.

As you'll remember our reporting yesterday, graphic video was released of a Dodge Challenger car deliberately driving into protesters at a peaceful anti-racist rally in the Virginia city, injuring more than 20 people. Related: Michael Rapaport Brings Strong Take To Racist Neo-Nazis Now, we know that the person killed by the domestic terror attack was 32-year-old Virginia native Heather Heyer, a woman who had been working as a paralegal with a local law firm. Police confirmed Heyer was struck while crossing the street with other counter-protesters. As for the man behind the wheel who perpetrated the terror attack, police have arrested 20-year-old James Fields Jr., who had initially sped away from the attack and gone free. He is facing multiple charges, including second-degree murder. Fields, a registered Republican who reportedly had long been obsessed with Nazis, appears to have been an avowed white supremacist and stood alongside members of the Vanguard America hate group during the rally that day. Related: Stay Up To Date On Our Dumbass President Here Our thoughts and prayers are with Heyer, as well as with all the injured victims in the attack that are still recovering in the hospital and at home.

Heather Heyer"s Parents Preach Forgiveness At The Charlottesville Victim"s Memorial Service: "You Just Magnified Her"

Heather Heyer may be gone, but she won't be silenced. That's one thing the mother of the 32-year-old — who was killed on Saturday when a car plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters at Charlottesville's white nationalist rally — made clear at the activist's memorial service.

That's one thing the mother of the 32-year-old -- who was killed on Saturday when a car plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters at Charlottesville's white nationalist rally -- made clear at the activist's memorial service. On Wednesday, Susan Bro received a standing ovation as she assured mourners Heather's death only "magnified" her voice -- and that continuing to have dialogues is the only way to "carry Heather's spark through." Related: Obama's Response To Charlottesville Rally Is The Most Liked Tweet Ever! She told the crowd of over 1,000 people: "They tried to kill my child to shut her up -- well, guess what -- you just magnified her… I want this to spread, I don't want this to die. This is just the beginning of Heather's legacy." The memorial was held Wednesday morning at Charlottesville's Paramount Theater and attended by many including Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Sen. Tim Kaine. Bro revealed that a public memorial is what her daughter would have wanted, adding Heather "had to have the world involved [in her death], because that's my child. Always has been." The Charlottesville native encouraged attendees to make Heather's death worthwhile by continuing her fight in advocacy for equal rights. She explained: "Conversations have to happen. That's the only way we're going to carry Heather's spark through… Find what's wrong, don't ignore it, don't look the other way. Say to yourself, 'What can I do to make a difference?' And that's how you're going to make my child's death worthwhile." Heather's grandfather Elwood Shrader also spoke at the service, remembering the activist had always shown passion for fairness and justice. Shrader said his granddaughter, who worked as a paralegal, was always willing to understand someone else's viewpoint even if she didn't agree with it. Related: Nazis Applaud Trump's Defense Of White Nationalists Heather's father Mark Heyer broke down during his emotional speech. While he also spoke on her lifelong battle for equality, Mark emphasized her fight to put an end to hate, adding: "She wanted equality. And in this issue of the day of her passing, she wanted to put down hate. And for my part, we just need to stop all this stuff and just forgive each other." We can't think of anything more commendable than parents at the center of civil unrest preaching about forgiveness at their daughter's memorial. After all, hate only leads to more hate.

Related: Michael Rapaport Brings Strong Take To Racist Neo-Nazis Although the Charlottesville City Council voted this year to remove the statue and rename the location as Emancipation Park, a judge issued a temporary injunction in May preventing Virginia authorities from moving the Confederate symbol for six months. However, Mayor Mike Signer (pictured above) is calling the shots, and he wants all the monuments -- including the Lee effigy -- to be gone! The Democrat said in a statement: "With the terrorist attack, these monuments were transformed from equestrian statues into lightning rods... We can, and we must, respond by denying the Nazis and the KKK and the so-called alt-right the twisted totem they seek... And so for the sake of public safety, public reassurance, to magnify Heather's voice, and to repudiate the pure evil that visited us here, I am calling today for the removal of these Confederate statues from downtown Charlottesville." Signer recently appeared on CNN where he told Anderson Cooper he has NOT received a call from President Donald Trump regarding the recent violent clashes in his city. [Image via CNN.].....»»

The 49-year-old talk show host addressed the situation during his opening monologue on Monday night (August 14). “We went into the weekend worrying about the fact that Kim Jong-un vowed to start a war by the middle of this month,” Jimmy said. “And we come out of it wondering if our president is cutting eye holes out of his bedsheets.” “As you know, this weekend in Virginia, the worst people in the United States went to the hardware store, bought tiki torches, lit ‘em up, and marched in Charlottesville,” he continued. “A non-violent protester was killed by a white supremacist and so the president – who is the president, by the way – went on television. He started with a prepared statement, and then he had to throw in ‘on many sides.’” “Let’s not lay all the blame on the Nazis and the Klan here, there were people who marched against them,” Jimmy joked, adding, “Then for two days [Trump] had no further comment. The one thing he decides to be quiet about is this! Of course, everyone went nuts because … there were two sides – not many – and one of those sides had Nazis on it.” “All he had to do was condemn the Nazis, which shouldn’t have been difficult!” Jimmy said. “It’s not exactly a controversial stance, not like we asked him to come out against puppies.” He also shared, “Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, called the rally ‘evil’ and ‘disgusting.’ You understand what that means? That means Germany is taking a stronger stance against Nazis than we are … and they invented them.” Watch his full monologue below. Jimmy Kimmel on Donald Trump’s Charlottesville Comments.....»»
