A 45-second video by Brennan Gilmore (formerly of Progressive Tom Perriello's staff) shows a car driving into counter-protesters in Virginia, then reversing, gives an idea of the terror in Charlottesville, VA, this afternoon. Three deaths and at least 35 injuries have been recorded in Charlottesville today.

Charlottesville is known as home to our nation's third, fourth and fifth presidents; Jefferson, Madison and Monroe.
(Added. 10:30 pm 08.12.17: White supremacists and alt-right activists had come to Charlottesville to protest the city's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from the city's Emancipation Park. When fighting broke out, police broke up the demonstration before it began. Later, a 20-year-old Ohio man currently in police custody allegedly drove into a crowd, killing at least one person and injuring many others. Several of the injured are in critical condition. )
