This was a deliberate act of terrorism, plain and simple.

If you are defending someone who ran into a group with people with their car, you might be an asshole.

Radical white terrorism. Why can't the President say these words?

important note of the video: you do not see any brake lights edit: adding alleged perpetrator: http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/12/us/charlottesville-car-crash-suspect-idd/index.html also see the mod's comment about why reddit doesn't allow witch hunting.

No matter how you look at it, the disregard for human life is awful.

Where is the mega thread mods? You guys are quick to make an mega thread for an terrorist act overseas, why is there not one now? Important information is happening and people are also spreading false information.

These guys are terrorists. Edit: If you think this is despicable and you feel like acting, you might contact the donors to Rep. Justin Burr of NC. He sponsored legislation to protect drivers hitting protesters. Just like Fox News hosts, you have to go to the source, the people who fund them. Here are his sponsors on opensecrets.org: Justin Burr: https://www.opensecrets.org/expends/vendor.php?year=2016&vendor=Justin+Burr+For+Nc+House

Oh wow a thread finally only TWO HOURS AFTER IT HAPPENED. JFC

The fact that the driver backs up as fast as he did pretty much blows the "I panicked and stepped on the gas by mistake" defense...it seriously looks like he was just out to cause mayhem.

If anyone truly believed there was a difference between Islamist fascists and white supremacist fascists, this video should clear things the fuck up for you. Edit: Ok, I've had various replies now suggesting I'm denying ISIS atrocities and/or linking me to beheading videos (thanks guys), so I'm reposting one general longer reply up here instead of going through all of them: I'm European, and I made my comment because watching a man drive a car with lethal force into a crowd of unarmed people reminded me so horribly of attacks we've seen here. A group of school kids were struck by an Islamic-fundamentalist murderer in a car just a mile from where I work. ISIS is a criminal death cult. If I didn't make myself clear, both fascists and Islamist fascists repulse me. But I can tell you that white supremacists, in Europe at least, are absolutely an existential danger. We already fought one war against that ideology (greatly aided by the US), but it left millions dead and gave the world the concept of 'genocide'. Since then, nazi-sympathising groups have continued to operate in many European countries, and a British politician, Jo Cox, was recently assassinated by a white supremacist. My grandfather volunteered to fight fascism in The Second World War, not just because his country was threatened, but because his best friend was a Jewish refugee, and he understood early on the horror of Nazism. I don't know what he would think if he saw actual fucking *self-proclaimed nazis* marching proudly again on the streets of both Europe and the United States. I am sorry if I'm not expressing myself well but there it is.

Reddit crowd sourcing someone's identity again? Remember the Boston Marathon debacle? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

This is America in 2017... disgusting.
13 Aug 2017 04:59 - +1104
The driver has been arrested. One dead so far. This is ridiculous. Far right terrorism is happening in the streets of America
13 Aug 2017 04:52 - +943
It's time for America to put Nazis back in their place.
13 Aug 2017 05:11 - +705
Terrorism. Call it what it is.

There are comments on the CNN Facebook post that are in support of the white nationalists.

Meanwhile our President is being a moral relativist and talking about violence on "many sides".
13 Aug 2017 05:54 - +384
This type of driving cars into crowds, etc. is terrorism, pure and simple; just of the domestic variety. When the muslims do it on the Promenade in Nice, or on Westminster Bridge in London, we call them terrorists. Americans need to wake up and understand that this isn't cute behavior, it is terrorism, even if it is white Jim who "bleeds red white and blue" and drives a chevy because Jim actually has no love for the real republic that exists here, and is no patriot, but a terrorist.
13 Aug 2017 05:38 - +375
I wonder how long before these become gun battles.
13 Aug 2017 05:10 - +370
One death resulted so far according to NYT and CNN.
13 Aug 2017 07:50 - +360
To everyone who's been confused about what terrorism is, it's not when a white guy kills a random Muslim, it's not when a Muslim kills a random white person, this is what terrorism is. A targeted attack with political motivation, the race of the person driving is irrelevant.
13 Aug 2017 06:10 - +342
I love the Neo-Nazi narrative that is emerging that this is some lefty who ran over those people. It's not even the same car in the photo.
13 Aug 2017 08:00 - +306
Holy shit. There are actually people in this thread defending this shit saying it was an accident. In one of the vids you can see the car going 20 mph and then suddenly accelerating into the big crowd pedal to the metal. The only thing that stopped it was rear ending another car and then the guy peeled out. You'd have to be brain dead to think this wasn't intentional. Stop defending this shit saying it was an accident or those people shouldn't have been in the road or whatever. Plenty of large rallies and protests end up with people in the road, streets blocked off etc. Doesn't justify committing fucking murder. Bet you wouldn't be saying that if it was the people you politically align with being run over. So if you're defending this incident cut the shit and just say what you really want to say about how happy you are some "liberals" died or whatever. Then you're still a piece of shit but least you're an honest one.

this is soo fucked up

When you spend all your time bitching about radical Islam only to plow your car into a crowd like a radical Muslim.
13 Aug 2017 05:05 - +188
Whoa. They caught the driver right? There's no story in the link

How ironic that many of these far-right nutcases are employing the same tactics as ISIS
13 Aug 2017 05:08 - +83
That's a terrorist act per the definition of the US Govt.

Wow. Well, this certainly is an unfortunate sort of timing for Dodge. https://twitter.com/dodge
13 Aug 2017 09:03 - +64
Pretty sure that's terrorism. Just like the radical muslims who drove vans and trucks into crowds*

This is terrorism, whomever caused this should be identified and punished accordingly. We shouldn't be so eager to point fingers and fight eachother over what one person did, as that's what they'd want.
13 Aug 2017 10:51 - +38
The suspect drove over 8 hours (500+ miles) from Maumee, Ohio to Charlottesville, VA to commit an act of terror.
13 Aug 2017 09:35 - +13
WaPo has identified the person driving the car.

Edit: National news media have just confirmed the identity of the driver. You can now discuss it freely. Oh and to the idiots posting about some kid earlier: YOU WERE WRONG. He was not the driver. Nice work trying to ruin some innocent kid's life.   _______ We do not allow witch hunting or personal information of any kind on this subreddit until such time as the details are made public by the police or a reliable media source.
