White nationalist Richard Spencer at rally over Confederate statue's removalThe city of Charlottesville voted to remove a statue of Confederate general Robert E Lee, sparking a backlash from the so-called ‘alt-right’ community. A small group of torch-wielding protesters, including the white nationalist “alt-right” leader Richard Spencer, descended on Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday evening to protest the sale of a statue commemorating Confederate general Robert E Lee. Charlottesville’s city council voted in April to remove the statue of Lee, who led the Confederate army of northern Virginia in the South’s fight to secede from the union and retain slaves in the late 19th century.
