Mayor Tweets ‘GO HOME’ After Killer Driver Plows Car Into Virginia Protesters

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer pleaded for calm after a car plowed into a crowd of demonstrators protesting a gathering of white supremacists in the Virginia college town, killing at least one person.

Signer, who is Jewish, later said at least one person was killed.

Video footage showed the driver apparently intentionally driving into a group of protesters opposed to the neo-Nazis and white supremacists who gathered for a rally downtown.

That suggested the driver might be a supporter of the far right groups that called the torch-lit rally in the normally peaceful town.

Signer earlier blamed President Trump for fanning the flames of hatred with his divisive rhetoric and policies.
