Gateway Pundit: Never-Before-Seen Drone Footage From Charlottesville 2017 Protests Reveals Enormous Extent of Media Lies and Propaganda

Better late than never.

This isn’t news to those of us who were at Charlottesville.

The purpose of the Unite the Right rally was to support Jason Kessler’s civil rights, to support the Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson monuments which were the central issue and to assert our rights to free speech and free assembly and to come together and have a good time. We used to live in a free country where anyone had the right to assemble in public. A federal court agreed with us.

Years ago, few people on the Right realized just how radicalized the Left had become by the election of Donald Trump. Antifa still weren’t very well known. “Journalists” weren’t seen as commissars. We weren’t used to the police standing down and allowing violent mobs to attack people. We weren’t used to censorship or protesters prowling the streets causing traffic accidents. There have been at least a hundred “Charlottesvilles” since then involving nothing but Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioting.

We went to Charlottesville to attend a free speech rally and support our heritage. The Charlottesville Police and Virginia State Police had their own orders. Antifa and Black Lives Matter had their own agenda which was to violently disrupt our event and shut it down. The corporate media had their own agenda which was to spin a narrative. We didn’t realize until it was too late that we had walked into a trap.

Gateway Pundit:

Never-Before-Seen Drone Footage from Charlottesville 2017 Protests Reveals Extent of Media Lies

Shows there was almost no chance convicted driver James Fields knew that he was turning onto a street with extreme left-wing protesters as a gathering left-wing crowd waited while protesting through the whole city.

Could be critical evidence in the pending appeal by James Fields of his double convictions in both state and federal courts, leaving the then-20 year old with a life without probation sentence plus 419 years. 

Shows that the pro-Lee protesters looking to protect a statue of Robert E. Lee from being taken down were literally pushed by Democrat police agents and funneled through a hostile crowd of left-wing agitators.

Shows militant Antifa, ‘alternative left’ Communists, outnumbered pro-Lee protesters by 10:1, yet media only covered the presence and violence of pro-Lee protesters. Left-wing violence was officially sanctioned by media, government and police during the protest.

Law enforcement never requested this footage; this full footage has never been seen before!

Video makes clear the ‘alternative left’ could protest anywhere, assault anyone, and police would not stop them. The pro-Lee protesters were repeatedly shut down by police and had to fight for months in federal court to even get a protest permit. …”

There was one good thing that came out of Charlottesville.

We learned that day that the rules had changed. The police would stand down and allow Antifa and Black Lives Matter to do their worst. The corporate media would edit footage to hide the truth about leftwing violence. We couldn’t count on federal court orders or police protection in volatile situations. It was with Charlottesville in mind that we steered clear of all the chaos which unfolded last summer.

  1. Even though they were lies, do you think those involved will be vindicated? In the eyes of the govt we are the enemy and it stated long before Biden took office.

  2. “The police would stand down and allow Antifa and Black Lives Matter to do their worst. The corporate media would edit footage ”

    Seems like it was coordinated from behind the scenes.

    ” Nah, just a cohencidence, goy”

    • Further proof that cops will do whatever they are told to do by TPTB in order to keep the paychecks coming.

  3. Brad, as I’ve said before, as the video became available, Fields would be exonerated.

  4. Hopefully this will dissuade HW from running any type of even remotely pro-cop stuff on ZH including – but not limited to – articles like “Police Officers Are Resigning En Masse ” and “The War On Cops”.

    • It won’t. The alt-right will continue to mindlessly echo boomer type pro-police rhetoric. They will continue to not see the folly in defending the people who enforce the oppression of whites. They will continue to not see how the pro-police attitudes that they are contributing to make whites less rebellious, weaker and more gullible in the face of oppression.

      It’s going to take much more extreme repression of whites for the alt-right to stop pro-police rhetoric. Many in the alt-right would “back the blue” even as they were being lead to the gallows by the police.

  5. That’s the first I’ve heard of James Fields’ appeal. The unjust conviction of Fields was necessary for the prosecution to justify the other extreme sentences handed out to the other defendants that followed. Looking back, it was a strategic error for our side not to help provide Fields with better legal representation. Understandably, every notable attendee on our side had their own legal problems to worry about.

  6. Whites now have NO firm constitutional rights that cannot be violated. We live under the tyranny of the kikes & their shitlib whores bent on another jew Bolshevik White genocide.

    Only time can tell who will really disappear forever.

  7. ….militant Antifa, ‘alternative left’ Communists, outnumbered pro-Lee protesters by 10:1…

    How many pro-Statue protesters were there? IIRC, the estimates were 500 or 1,000.

  8. HW, do you have a video of New York BLM Hawk Newsome on the afternoon right after it had been declared an unlawful assembly where Newsome said that they came there to shut the rally down and they did just that and won and he said there was fighting on both sides and he has never seen the police stand down as they did there in Charlottesville that day and he admitted that he was involved in some fighting himself.

    I have been looking for that video but can’t locate it or maybe the one I did find a few months ago has parts edidted out.

    CNN has something about Newsome’s comment that the police stood down:

    Another protester, Hawk Newsome, president of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, told CNN affiliate WCAV the police response to “Unite the Right” was different than at rallies he’s attended in the past. He said the police in Charlottesville were too far away to prevent any violence.

    “The police actually allowed us to square off against each other,” Newsome said. “There were fights and the police were standing a block away the entire time. It’s almost as if they wanted us to fight each other.”

    Neither Charlottesville Police nor Virginia State Police immediately responded to CNN’s requests for comment. The city of Charlottesville also did not respond.
