A white nationalist interviewed by Vice thought the attack last weekend in Charlottesville was “more than justified,” describing the counter-protesters as “animals.”
Vice documentary “Charlottesville: Race and Terror” goes behind the scenes of the “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally, which started last Friday with a protest against the removal of a Confederate statue. On Saturday, a woman was killed and 19 people were injured when a white nationalist drove into a crowd of counter-protesters.
“I can’t get my head around that at all,” Pat Gray said of the shocking interview on Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
In the documentary, white nationalist Christopher Cantwell told a Vice reporter that he wanted a leader “more racist” than President Donald Trump and explained why – in his perception – Saturday’s act of terrorism was excusable. “I think it was more than justified. … the amount of restraint that our people showed out there, I think, was astounding,” he said.
Stu Burguiere praised the objective journalism of the Vice documentary, in which correspondent Elle Reeve interviewed white nationalist leaders and showed admirable restraint, choosing to let her sources damn themselves with their comments rather than asking leading questions.
“That is absolute award-winning stuff,” he said.
