Organizer of deadly Charlottesville march whines to Fox News that he’s in hiding after death threats

The organizer of white nationalist march in Charlottesville that claimed the life of Heather Heyer has told Fox News that he has had to go into hiding due to death threats.

According to the organizer, who was chased from Charlottesville when he attempted to give a press conference after the death of Heyer on Sunday, claims that he is being unfairly maligned, stating his followers are a “civil rights” group.

“Some are the discriminatory policies of affirmative action, college admissions, history books being rewritten, blaming American whites for slavery,” Kessler explained, adding, “Every culture had slavery.”

Kessler claimed that he never met James Alex Fields Jr., who is currently being held for running Heyer down with his car, and when asked about the victim, demurred, saying, “No comment.”

Since the deadly attack and the blowback that has followed, Kessler’s Twitter and Facebook accounts have been shuttered.

You can watch video of Kessler running from counter-protesters in Charlottesville  last Sunday below:

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, 9/11 first responder John Feal first took shots at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) before getting around to recent comments made by President Donald Trump where he claimed he was having a meeting with representatives of the firefighters and police this week.

In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, the president noted the work being done by former "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart to help get legislation pushed through, and said that he is taking a personal interest in the 9/11 victims' plight.

Trump has a 2020 election ‘challenge’ as suburban voters and wealthy donors flee him: Vanity Fair reporter

Published

During an MSNBC panel discussion on Donald Trump's re-election hopes in 2020, a reporter for Vanity Fair said the president's chances may be narrowing due to changes from the 2016 election that led to his surprising win.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Gabriel Sherman said Trump has solidified his base, but that independents are fleeing. Add to that, rich benefactors who have been big supporters of the GOP are backing off.

"Here's the thing," Sherman began. "Clearly the people that are loyal to Trump, we saw this just last week when he was in Orlando for his kickoff rally, everyone reported it was a rehash of all of the 2016 campaign catch words and slogans."

According to the tweet, a "racist neighbor" had demanded that the "mostly black" children cease playing between two apartment buildings.

"Y'all keep on playing!" Nick says. "I know every single one of y'all lives here. So, please, sir, step away if you don't live here."

"Let them go wherever the fuck they want if they live here!" Nick shouts back after the man disagrees with him. "Guess what? You only own your porch... from there on out, it's free play."
