White Nationalist James Fields Jr, Heather Hyer's Charlottesville Assasin Sentenced To Life In Prison

James Fields, Jr., the white supremacist who murdered Heather Heyer and injured dozens of others driving his Dodge Challenger into a crowd of peaceful demonstrators in Charlottesville on August 12, 2017 has received a life sentence in federal prison.

Prosecutors had argued that Mr. Fields’s racist, anti-Semitic beliefs motivated his decision to attend the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville and use his automobile in an act of domestic terrorism. Thomas T. Cullen, the United States attorney for the Western District of Virginia, said after hearing the sentence that the case set a precedent for future instances of domestic terrorism.

Mr. Fields was one of hundreds of young white supremacists who swarmed Charlottesville in August 2017, marching with tiki torches shouting “The Jews will not replace us.”

'Schindler's List' Rereleased On 25th Anniversary As Anti-Semitism Roars In America

The epic movie ‘Schindler’s List’ is being released into theaters to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Oscar-winning film that debuted Dec. 15, 1993. ‘Schindler’s List’ — which won seven Oscars, including for best picture, director, adapted screenplay and original score — will be rereleased in a limited engagement on Friday.

Director Steven Spielberg sat down for an interview with ‘NBC Nightly News’ anchor Lester Holt that will air Wednesday, Dec. 12th.

"I think this is maybe the most important time to rerelease this film," said Spielberg, according to a transcript of the interview released ahead of its broadcast. The motion picture about Nazi Germany and the Holocaust may be more important now due to the global rise in hate crimes, hate speech and propaganda — including in America.

"When collective hate organizes and gets industrialized, then genocide follows," the Oscar-winning filmmaker tells 'NBC Nightly News' host Lester Holt in the Dec. 12 interview.

Holt and Spielberg discuss the August 2017 Charlottesville, Virginia murder of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, as she protested a white supremacist rally. President Donald Trump — who has been accused of racism in the past, writes The Hollywood Reporter — inflamed outrage by saying there were "very fine people on both sides" of the tragic Charlottesville event. 

Charlottesville Car Killer James Alex Fields Jr. Charged With First Degree Murder

Self-professed neo-Nazi James Alex Fields Jr., 20, has been charged with first-degree murder Thursday, after being jailed on lesser charges since the Aug. 12 for the death of Charlottesville protester Heather D. Heyer

Fields had been charged with second-degree murder, punishable by five to 40 years in prison. WaPo writes:

Authorities had initially said that 19 people were injured, in addition to Heyer, when Fields allegedly rammed his 2010 Dodge Challenger into another vehicle on purpose on a crowded street. But testimony at the preliminary hearing revealed that there were many more victims. Besides first-degree murder, Fields, who lived in Ohio before his arrest, is charged with eight counts of “aggravated malicious wounding,” meaning that at least eight of the 35 people who were hurt suffered what Virginia law describes as “permanent and significant physical impairment," writes the New York Times

Charlottesville's Susan Bro Says She Will Not Talk To Trump. Her Advice To Him: "Think Before You Speak"

Charlottesville's Susan Bro Says She Will Not Talk To Trump. Her Advice To Him: "Think Before You Speak"

Until Thursday, when she spoke to MSNBC's Katy Tur, Bro acknowledged that the White House was trying to reach her but she was overwhelmed. Having watched no coverage of her daughter's death, this eloquent Virginia woman, who shared her daughter's commitment to social justice, didn't know until Thursday that the President of the United States had said on Tuesday at a rogue press conference that there were "very fine people" in the crowd of Nazis, KKK members, and white nationalists whose presence in Thomas Jefferson's home unleashed hatred, bigotry, violence and death.  

Speaking with Tur, Bro pushed back on President Trump's insistence that there is blame "on both sides", saying that her daughter was a peaceful protester. After having more time to reflect and probably reading about the avalanche of criticism hitting Trump from every corner over his rogue comments that supported white nationalism, Bro was clear about what she wanted to say when hooked up to ABC's Good Morning America and co-host Robin Roberts.

Daily Stormer Is Down, Kicked Off GoDaddy, Then Google. We Assume It Will Rise Again

The now infamous neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer lost its GoDaddy hosting home Monday night after being advised that it had 24 hours to find another host provider. The company has been criticized for months for hosting the Daily Stormer, which clearly violated its terms of service. 

Daily Stormer first launched a false flag operation, saying that Anonymous had taken over its website in honor of Heather Heyer, the victim of a domestic terror act on Saturday in Charlottesville, Va. Owner Andrew Anglin, who wrote a disgusting diatribe against Heyer, then moved the site to Google, which immediately announced that it would not host the website.

In the Daily Stormer post, Anglin called Heyer a 'slut', characterizing her as dying in a “road rage incident.” He said she was a “drain on society” and disparaged her appearance. “Most people are glad she is dead,” he wrote.

Sen. Ted Cruz Calls Out Nazis, The KKK & White Supremacists In Act Of Domestic Terrorism

Writing for Vogue, Lynn Yaeger asks 'Why Is President Trump Coddling the White Supremacist Movement?  Large numbers of Republicans are criticizing Trump's refusal to condemn the white supremacts, neo-Nazis and Klan members convened Saturday in Charlottesville for a 'Unite the Right' rally in which a car driven by 20-year-old Ohio man James Alex Fields killed one and left 19 injured, five in critical condition on Sunday morning. 

One Republican Trump supporter Senator Ted Cruz of Texas issued the condemnation Trump should have issued. From his FB page, Cruz states that "these bigots want to tear our country apart, but they will fail.".
