There are ninety-two posts about what we call Charlottesville Narrative Collapse on VDARE.com—the idea that everything you've been told about the 2017 Charlottesville Unite The Right rally by the media and the Democrats is a lie.
A book has been written on it (Charlottesville Untold: Inside the Unite the Right Rally). See What Really Happened at Charlottesville, Part I and Part II by Roger Devlin.
Charlottesville was not a "mostly peaceful" demonstration by UTR attendees, it was a genuinely peaceful demonstration, including a traditional American torchlight parade which set nothing on fire, until attacked by Leftist paramilitaries with the aid of local authorities.
A "non-profit" has been suing Jason Kessler and organizers of Unite The Right in what it's been calling a "civil rights" lawsuit, and it's coming to trial starting today.
A typically disingenuous report is here at the New York Times; note this guy's horror at a torchlight parade at which nothing was set on fire:
The violent #Charlottesville rally started with a mob of men brandishing burning torches in the heart of an American city while chanting racist, antisemitic slogans, and it ended with a woman murdered, scarring a nation. https://t.co/I9U6sAM2ba— Cyril Mychalejko (@cmychalejko) October 24, 2021
A brief word about the torchlight parade, much mocked because they were using tiki torches—which in this context means "fire safety." Torchlight parades are an American tradition—during the dark days of World War II, when there were real Nazis and Fascists to fight, a torchlight parade greeted the re-election of...Franklin Delano Roosevelt [Remarks to the Torchlight Paraders on Election Night,Hyde Park, New York. November 7, 1944]. It was reenacted at Hyde Park in 2016:
We've published articles on the suit and the trial by Kessler himself:
But see also from 2017:
That last was one of the first statue topplings of the modern era, and of course it was neither stopped nor punished: We've also covered rally organizer Jason Kessler's attempts to get justice through the courts:

And more recently, before the election, we covered Joe Biden's use of the Charlottesville Big Lie to attack Trump...and America.
See Joe Biden Thinks He's Running Against Racism. He's Running Against America, April 25, 2019 and Biden Officially Announces He’s Running Against Charlottesville—With "Black Lives Matter" Kamala By His Side August 13, 2020.
I'll quote from that last one:
In one of the flatter-toned, yawn-inducing announcements of a VP pick I've ever heard, Joe Biden stood before a non-audience yesterday to tell the electorate he's picked Kamala Harris of California.
It was sorry, boilerplate stuff about "working families," capped off with something like this:
It’s also the third anniversary of that terrible day in Charlottesville. Remember? Remember what it felt like to see those neo-Nazis, close your eyes, and those Klansmen, white supremacists, coming close your eyes, and those Klansmen, white supremacists, coming out of fields, carrying lighted torches, faces contorted, bulging veins, pouring into the streets of a historic American city...
(Not an exact transcript, automatically transcribed by Rev.com).
The reason you have to close your eyes is because you have to blind yourself to months of violent, murderous and destructive rioting by the anti-white left in cities across America. Antifa and Black Lives Matter have taken over neighborhoods, destroyed businesses, defied the rule of law and otherwise terrorized traditional America—with full support from the media, the Democrats, Big Tech, Big Business, and so on.
Biden ran against the peaceful white marchers of Charlottesville with the aid of black mobs looting and burning American cities. And that's all you need to know about the horrors of Charlottesville.
