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.

WATCH: 16-year-old Greta Thunberg rebukes GOPer who thinks other countries must solve climate change
Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish climate activist, faced off with members of Congress on Wednesday.
In a hearing before the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, Thunberg declined to submit a written opening statement.
"I don’t want you to listen to me, I want you to listen to the scientists and I want you to unite behind the science,” she said.
Republican Rep. Garret Graves of Louisiana tried to make the point that the U.S. should not curb its carbon emissions until other countries agreed to do so.
"Let me ask you a question," Graves said. "If you were sailing across the ocean and you were picking up trash along the way and for every one piece of trash you pick up, there's a boat right next to you dumping out five pieces, how would that make you feel?"
