Charlottesville, Virginia has been a popular gathering place for white supremacists this year. It started back in April when they voted to remove a monument of Robert E. Lee, and it hasn't stopped. On Saturday, a group of about 50 white nationalists came back to Charlottesville, including Richard Spencer. The meeting was monitored by police and only lasted about 10 minutes. However, it was still enough to cause unrest amongst many people.

What did they do?

Not much happened Saturday night. The white nationalists showed up at the covered monument of Robert E.

Lee (soon to be removed), chanted their chants, reasserted their claim that "the South will rise again," and left. Richard Spencer was among them, still leading the group on despite being punched in the face for his views earlier this year. When he and everyone else boarded the bus to leave, the police followed to make sure that the group did actually left the area.

The police said that this meeting was not violent, unlike the rally in August that resulted in the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer who was there to protest against the white nationalists. Despite the fact that nothing was accomplished and the group did nothing at all to make themselves seem reputable, the white nationalists are considering this visit to Charlottesville a success.

The repeated backlash

Despite being told that they and their racist ideals were not welcome in Charlottesville last time, the white nationalists still showed up. And again, they were told that their racist agenda was not welcome in Charlottesville.

Mayor Mike Signer urged them to go home via a message o his Twitter account. He was met with a lot of backlash from people who support the group, but his stance did not change. There is no place for white supremacists in Charlottesville.

However, it wasn't just the mayor of Charlottesville that wants them to leave.

The Mayor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, isn't pleased with their presence either. He wants the group to be monitored and doesn't want any of their racist messages to be presented in Virginia.

The white nationalist group just keeps showing up where they are not wanted. Hopefully, Mayor Signer can find a way to keep these people out of Charlottesville, but it's unlikely. White supremacy is still considered free speech in the United States, and not hate speech, even though that's what it is. Hopefully we can find a way to get these people out of Virginia and out of the public eye once and for all.
