And a string of killings in recent months raised the specter of far-right violence well before last weekend.
Protests turned violent in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, as white supremacists clashed with counter-demonstrators, and a car ploughed into the crowd of anti-racist and anti-fascist protesters. Two days later, after public outcry, he specifically condemned white supremacy.
On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the fatal attack “domestic terrorism” and said, “You can be sure we will charge and advance the investigation toward the most serious charges that can be brought.”In Charlottesville and beyond, people were grappling with the blatant display of attitudes that many believed had been buried, but the extremists who rallied were newly energized and planning their next moves.
Police departments across the country were bracing for what they fear could be similar events.
