“In Friday’s memo, Fields’ attorneys highlighted his difficult upbringing and history of mental illness, but many of the details were redacted from public viewing. He was raised by a paraplegic single mother and suffered “trauma” by growing up knowing that his Jewish grandfather had murdered his grandmother before committing suicide, his lawyers said.
Prosecutors focused on years of documented racist and anti-Semitic behavior by Fields, which they said included keeping a picture of Adolf Hitler on his bedside table. They also said in court documents that he was recorded on a jail phone call making disparaging remarks about Heyer’s mother as recently as last month.
Prosecutors also said that while Fields has a history of mental illness issues, it doesn’t excuse his behavior in a way that would require a lenient sentence. …”
So, it turns out that James Fields, Jr. is mentally ill, and that he had a Jewish grandfather who murdered his grandmother. In spite of no one having ever heard of this guy before Charlottesville and acting totally on his own initiative, everyone else myself included are being held responsible for his actions.
This is why I don’t participate in public rallies anymore. You never know who is going to show up at these volatile events, what their own personal agenda will be or whether law enforcement can be relied on to do its job. The only thing we know for sure is who will be blamed by the media regardless of what happens. That’s the lesson of Charlottesville. The costs outweigh the benefits.
If you record what transpires at these events and the truth happens to contradict the narrative of the mainstream media, the social media monopolies will ban you for “extremism.”
