One person died in the Charlottesville riots over the weekend after a man plowed his vehicle into a crowd of counter-protesters. Authorities including Department of Justice officials are investigating the incident, which Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday “does meet the definition of domestic terrorism.”
Ohio resident James Alex Fields Jr., 20, allegedly drove his Dodge Challenger into a crowd of people. He has been charged with one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of “hit and run attended failure to stop with injury,” NBC News reported. Terrorism and civil rights investigators from the DOJ are looking into the horrifying incident.
“It is garbage and it is poisonous,” Glenn Beck said of white supremacist ideology on Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
He contrasted the backstories of Fields, who traveled from Ohio to North Carolina to be part of the white supremacist protest, and the woman he is suspected of killing. Heather Heyer, 32, was remembered as a passionate individual who opposed “any type of discrimination” by her close friends following the attack.
Glenn warned that failing to identify and fight against white supremacy will only make it more dangerous.
“White identity politics this weekend was deadly and it will only grow,” he said.
