RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and the city of Charlottesville on Wednesday proactively declared a state of emergency ahead of the one-year anniversary of a violent white nationalist rally that left one person dead and dozens of others injured.

Officials said the declaration would streamline state and local operations this weekend while also allocating $2 million in state funds. The declaration authorizes the Virginia National Guard to assist in security efforts.

The article goes on to state the following:

Law enforcement officials said there will be a heavy police presence meant to deter any violence.

Virginia State Police Superintendent Gary Settle said more than 700 state police will be activated during the weekend and “state police is fully prepared to act” to prevent any incidents like last year.

Only one organizer of last summer’s rally in Charlottesville seems intent on publicly marking the anniversary. Jason Kessler has vowed to press ahead with plans for an Aug. 12 rally in Washington, D.C., after Charlottesville denied him a permit.

Authorities faced unrelenting criticism for their handling of last year’s rally and an independent review that found serious police and government failures in responding to violence at the “Unite the Right” rally. It drew hundreds of white nationalists from across the country to the Virginia college town.

Chaos erupted before the event even began, with participants and counterprotesters brawling in the street. Later, a woman was killed when a car drove into a crowd protesting against the white nationalists, and dozens more were injured.

  1. Wanna bet that the only ones that show up will be the Brain Dead Walkers of Antifa. And the violence they espouse will be attributed to those that weren’t even there….

  2. One very simple solution to these all these protests anywhere would be to make it a felony for anyone to take part in a protest wearing masks in order to hide their identity.

    Wear a mask: get instantly arrested and charged.

    Wearing masks like the Antifa people do is actually a Fascist act. They should be wearing Nazi armbands and wearing brown shirts.

  3. Those who were there last year are having a rally in DC on the anniversary. Now they decide to mobilize law enforcement… Last year they didn’t keep the 2 groups separated as they should have.

  4. Oh, my are they expecting violence from the tolerant lefty snowflakes.? How dare them to portray them as anti-American, fascists, commie, socialist, snowflake, looneys. Lazy good for nothing give me it free spoiled little cockroaches.
