Vice News Documentary on Charlottesville Violence and Protests

It is important to clearly  and accurately understand what took place in Charlottesville. Much of what happened has been obscured by political spin.

In this video by Vice News and shown on HBO, reporter Elle Reeve was embedded during the protests. It shows the xenophobia, racism, and hatred that is the core of alt-right beliefs.

Draw your own conclusions. This video is hard to watch and very raw. Click below
