From the beginning of its reporting following the event, the liberal media whitewashed the DHS warning about antifa’s conspiring to engage in violence at the Charlottesville protests over planned removal of Confederate General Robert E.

Charlottesville has been used for political purposes to attack Donald Trump and conservatives as racists. The false narrative even underlying those claims appears to be worse than originally suspected.
