Recently, members of the Alt-Right, Neo-Nazis, White Supremacist, and other lunatic fringe groups marched in Charlottesville. Counter-protesters marched against them. An Alt-Right degenerate rammed a car into a group of counter-protesters defending humanity. One was killed and nineteen injured. There’s real monsters in the world, infesting society like intestinal worms. We all need to stay on guard and root out the pus-filled Alt-Right infection wherever we find it.
