Only 30-50 Klansmen in Charlottesville?

I've been attempting with almost no luck to get the demographic breakdown of the various segments of protestors at Charlottesville. I found this local public media report which sheds a very different light on the event.

Protesters Surround KKK Gathering In Charlottesville

Despite urging from the city's mayor to ignore the racist group, about 1,000 people showed up to protest a few dozen members of the Ku Klux Klan who gathered in Charlottesville, Va. Saturday.

Klan members had called for a rally to oppose the city's plans to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general. About 30 to 50 Klan members were escorted by police to and from the city's Justice Park.


The KKK arrived around 3:45 p.m., according to the Charlottesville Daily Progress. Klan members only stayed at the scene for less than half an hour, Hausman reports. When they began to leave, "the crowd tried to stop the Klansmen from driving off" she says.

The Daily Progress reports police declared an "unlawful assembly" at 4:40 p.m., and "a line of officers in riot gear donned gas masks and set off canisters of tear gas."

Law enforcement made 23 arrests, according to a statement from the mayor, who added that "2 people were treated for heat injuries and one for an alcohol-related issue."

So a 20:1 ratio of Antifa to Klansmen, who were escorted by police but were assaulted anyway? As for uniformed NAZIs, there were maybe 5.

The torchlight crowd chanting, "you will not replace us" the evening before the riot has been dubbed "white nationalist", and attributed racism, although the chant doesn't involve race. In fact, it seems more related to the Black Segregation of the Democrat hierarchy and BLM vitriol and Black Racism. And possibly related to the black frenzy to get statues of whites demolished.

There is little doubt that the destruction of the Confederate historical figures will ultimately result in statue replacement of black figures of one sort or another; at least I'll be surprised if that doesn't occur. And that will represent black racism with regard to whites, which is the modern "act of saints".

Is there more to this, other than the media skewed reports?
