Car plows into protestors in #Charlottesville. Several in critical condition.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) – Hundreds of people are facing off in Charlottesville ahead of a white nationalist rally planned in the Virginia city’s downtown.

Rally supporters and counter-protesters screamed, chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles and whipped out chemical dumps on each other Saturday morning.

Dudes dressed in militia uniforms were carrying shields and openly carrying long guns.

Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler says he planned what he calls a “pro-white” rally to protest Charlottesville’s decision to eliminate a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a city park.

Thousands of people are expected to pack the area.

There were also fights Friday night, when hundreds of white nationalists marched through the University of Virginia campus carrying torches.

A university spokesman said one person was arrested and several people were injured.

Mississippi Congressman Bennie Thompson voiced his remarks on Twitter this morning regarding the incident.

The hate being displayed in #Charlottesville has no place in our country. It should not be tolerated by any means.

— Rep. Bennie Thompson (@BennieGThompson) August 12, 2017

President Trump also took to Twitter to give his remarks on the violence.

We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!
