White Nationalists Return to Charlottesville, Hold ‘Flash Mob’ in Emancipation Park


Almost two months after a woman died during the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, white nationalists brandishing tiki-torches returned to “flash mob” the city’s Emancipation Park on Saturday night.

The march, which took place at around 7:30 p.m., consisted of around 40 to 50 marchers, Charlottesville Police said in a statement. Marchers were led through the park by one male using a bullhorn and in unison chanted, “You will not replace us. You will not erase us.”

Footage of the brief rally was posted online by Richard Spencer, an outspoken leader of the so-called “alt-right” movement.


The group dispersed after roughly 10 minutes, according to Charlottesville Police.

Spencer was also one of the attendees pictured along with a small group wearing suit coats, white collared shirts and khakis. In a tweet, he claimed the group “came in peace” and called Saturday’s march “Charlottesville 3.0,” saying it “was a success and it was a lot of fun.”

“We came. We triggered. We left,” he said in the post march testimonial. “We did an in-and-out flash mob.”
