Listen to the black guy starting at 1:15 ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLPhSWG4GG0 ... only about a 1 minute segment ... you can do it!

He talks about how the geography is important ... you had about 200 people in one location - Nazis vs. Antifa basically - then in a different location you had about 1000 people peacefully demonstrating.

Me too.
Eta: but I also did it in literature groups like 3 or 4 times over the past decade or 2 so I can pretty much quote from it.

A little context for the above.
Quote
U.S. Inflation Rate, 1865-2018 ($11,680)
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer price index, the dollar experienced an average inflation rate of 1.76% per year. Prices in 2018 are 1350.9% higher than prices in 1865.
In other words, $11,680 in the year 1865 is equivalent to $169,466.14 in 2018, a difference of $157,786.14 over 153 years.
The current inflation rate in 2018 is 0.77%1. If this number holds, $11,680 today will be equivalent to $11,769.85 next year.
Hope Colonel Anderson socked away some money for a rainy day. 
Also hope the old boy didn't convert it all to confederate money, lol.

Also it doesn't help that you are a woman ... I've had some bad experiences with super controlling manipulative women in my life and I now react really strongly to that.

Why not read that excellent and detailed report you linked to earlier?

Fox News trumps any and all reports, however detailed, times ten hands down no backsies.

Also a "black guy" said it, so you can't dispute it, take that leftist nazis.
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

Dave can't be racist, he has a black friend.  And not a guy that behaves white, a black friend from the HOOD.

Oh, the pitfalls of linking to something you never bother to read (or even "Hawkinz", apparently).

Here's a comprehensive report on Charlottesville by former US Attorney Timothy Heaphy ... https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/c869fb_a573de9ad4f04b0491b927ca9d48252c.pdf

Notice however, that dave unsupported assertion is that it was "a clash of alt right and alt left ... both with violent tendencies".

So...

Where are those "very fine people"?

Dave, dave... You can't even keep your story straight, it seems.

YOU are the one regurgitating alt-right bullshit mongers, Dave.

YOU are the one who cant bring yourself to admit that slavery was the primary cause of the ACW.

YOU are the one who sides with Trump bullshit despite his lies and expressed determination to do as much as he can to destroy the environment that YOU say YOU are trying to save.

Did you listen to the black guy?

Or are you a racist?

Does "the black guy" have a name? Or is he solely being defined by his color?

Also, did you read the report YOU have linked to? If you had, you would know why the excuses Fox News try to make are irrelevant.

Who ORGANIZED the rally, dave? WHY did they organize it?

Hey dave, check out this (mostly) peaceful rally:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxxxlutsKuI

Sure, there was some violence but of course, only those who actually engaged in violent attacks (on many sides, many sides) were the real nazis. All others, who were peacefully attending the rally, were naturally "very fine people".

Right?

Right?
