Charlottesville Vice Mayor Says Alt-Right Should Be Jailed For 'Intimidating' March

City Councilor Wes Bellamy said alt-right rallygoers in Charlottesville should be charged with felonies for holding an "intimidating" march over the weekend.

From the Daily Progress:
White nationalists, including “alt-right” leader Richard Spencer, assembled once again at the foot of Charlottesville’s Robert E. Lee statue in Emancipation Park, armed with torches in what Spencer dubbed “Charlottesville 3.0.”

[...]“While we prefer protesters get permits like any other event,” city spokeswoman Miriam Dicker said in an email, “such assemblies are protected by the First Amendment and we do not interfere unless we perceive a legal or safety issue.”
[...]City Councilor Wes Bellamy called for the ralliers to be prosecuted. He cited section 18.2-423.01 of the Virginia Code, which states that "any person who, with the intent of intimidating any person or group of persons, burns an object on a highway or other public place in a manner having a direct tendency to place another person in reasonable fear or apprehension of death or bodily injury is guilty of a Class 6 felony."

"When White Supremacists Make odes to White Power, and clearly use torches to send a message to our community that they are the superior race while trying to strike fear and intimidate others, they are breaking the law," Bellamy wrote on Facebook.

City police said in a statement that the department was conferring with local officials about possible legal action.
The "anti-racist" Bellamy has openly said he hates white people:

Journalist Nicholas Stix found last month that all five alt-righters who were arrested as a result of the last Charlottesville event "have been charged with felonies and jailed without bail," while the ten alt-lefters who were charged all got off on "trivial misdemeanors and are all free."

You might think this is what "systemic oppression" looks like -- but you'd be wrong.

Systemic oppression, as 49ers player Eric Reid said Sunday, is Vice President Mike Pence walking out on a football game because he opposes players kneeling.
