One dead after vehicle rams crowd at United States far-right rally

The incident came as hundreds of white-nationalist protesters brawled with opponents before and during a rally that was branded as "Unite the Right", which protested the removal of a statue of a Confederate general from the grounds of the University of Virginia.

"We should call evil by its name".

Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler had called for what he termed a "pro-white" rally to protest the city of Charlottesville's decision to remove the confederate statue from a downtown park.

"The visibility of racists really disturbs me, and the openness of the hate is a problem", Mark Goble said.

A university spokesman said one person was arrested and several people were injured.

This extraordinarily neutral language spreads blame for division and unrest to all sides.

"So when I watch Charlottesville, to me it's very, very sad".

But some of the white nationalists cited Trump's victory as validation for their beliefs, and Trump's critics pointed to the president's racially tinged rhetoric as exploiting the nation's festering racial tension. But try as they might, people of color will find it hard to achieve unity with white supremacists shouting slogans like "blood and soil".

"It is now clear that public safety can not be safeguarded without additional powers, and that the mostly out-of-state protesters have come to Virginia to endanger our citizens and property", McAuliffe wrote in a statement on his emergency declaration. He also said "there is no place for this kind of violence in America".

Indian American Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, called on Trump to "denounce what happened this weekend - and the white supremacist hate behind it".

The protest turned violent well ahead of the rally's official noon start time. They rallied behind his promises to build a wall on the southern border, reduce the number of foreigners allowed into the country and pressure everyone in the country to speak English and say "Merry Christmas".

The chaos boiled over at what is believed to be the largest group of white nationalists to come together in a decade: the governor declared a state of emergency, police dressed in riot gear ordered people out and helicopters circled overhead.

The vehicle ran into a group of people protesting against the white supremacist march, and the driver has been arrested, according to eye-witnesses said. He didn't attack us.

Earlier in the afternoon, Trump issued a pair of tweets which also appeared to address the situation. Nothing specific against us.

Normally reticent First Lady Melania Trump took to Twitter to respond to the demonstrations, writing, "Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts".

"I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror", Duke tweeted, "& remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists".

Later in the day, Trump tweeted condolences to the woman who was killed and his "best regards" to those injured.

"But the incitement of hatred that got us here is as real and condemnable as the white supremacists in our streets".
