White nationalists hold 'flash mob' in Charlottesville park

White nationalists returned to Charlottesville park, months after fatal protest.

The march, which took place at around 7:30 p.m., consisted of around 40 to 50 marchers, Charlottesville Police said in a statement. Marchers were led through the park by one male using a bullhorn and in unison chanted, "You will not replace us. You will not erase us."

Footage of the brief rally was posted online by Richard Spencer, an outspoken leader of the so-called “alt-right” movement.

The group dispersed after roughly 10 minutes, according to Charlottesville Police.

Spencer was also one of the attendees pictured along with a small group wearing suit coats, white collared shirts and khakis. In a tweet, he claiming the group "came in peace" and called Saturday's march “Charlottesville 3.0," saying it "was as success and it was a lot of fun.”

"We came. We triggered. We left," he said in the post march testimonial. "We did an in-and-out flash mob."

After the march, the gaggle of white nationalists boarded a tour bus and, according to Charlottesville police who trailed the vehicle, left the city. Officers followed the tour bus to ensure that the group was leaving the city limits, police said.

“Our department is conferring with city leadership and the Commonwealth Attorney’s office to determine what legal action may be taken in response to this event,” Charlottesville police said.

White nationalists also rallied in Charlottesville on May 13 to protest plans to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy reacted to the rally in a tweet Saturday night.
