Nazis terrorize Charlottesville AGAIN. Police do worse than nothing…AGAIN.

Dowdy Dickie Spencer’s latest charm offensive in Charlottesville was a cowardly flop. They had what — three, four dozen people, max? — and were so scared of backlash that they required a police escort. Which they got. Now, you can … Continue reading
