‘Shouldn’t be standing out in traffic’: Charlottesville white nationalist blames Heather Heyer for her own death
The ABC News affiliate in Miami, FL has shocking video of a white nationalist who attended the violent “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville blaming terrorism victim Heather Heyer for her murder.
“What was your impression of the events in Charlottesville?” WPLG reporter Amy Viteri asked Kyle Hanophy.
“It was beautiful,” Hanophy said.
Viteri followed up asking about Heyer, the 32-year-old Charlottesville para-legal who was fatally injured when struck by a car in what has been deemed a terrorist act by virtually everyone but President Donald Trump.
“What about the woman who lost her life?” Viteri asked.
“Shouldn’t be standing out in traffic, I suppose,” Hanophy replied.
“But it was a street full of people and somebody drove right into them,” Viteri said.
“Well, there’s tons of YouTube videos,” Hanophy said. “So I suggest people check those out.”
Hanophy claimed he isn’t a neo-Nazi, but added, “I would define myself as a white nationalist, maybe.”
The organizer of the march in Charlottesville, Jason Kessler, is alleged to have sent a tweet stating Heyer’s murder was, “payback time.”
