'Neo-Nazi cowards ... You're not welcome here!': White supremacists held another torch-lit rally in Charlottesville

Prominent white supremacist Richard B. Spencer was a featured speaker at a rally on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, where demonstrators reprised their chant of “You will not replace us!” and asserted that the South would “rise again.”
