Mayor Mike Signer was the target of angry protests from Charlottesville residents at a City Council meeting Monday.
Mayor Mike Signer’s Ph.D. dissertation was about how to fight demagogues — which he says prepared him for taking on Donald Trump and the “alt-right.”
“Duke, Duke, Duke,” the crowd chanted, as David Duke, former KKK leader and poster boy of modern neo-Nazism, stepped up to the bench-turned-podium.
