Posted by Warren Porter on August 13, 2017 at 6:25 PM

Trump supporters from across the nation gathered in droves this weekend to participate to celebrate our President's "America First" platform. The rally was held in Charlottesville to protest the recent renaming of Robert E. Lee Park to Emancipation field by the Charlottesville City Council. Ironically, these people believe protecting the honor and legacy of one of America's most infamous traitors is essential to American patriotism, but minutiae such as this will not deter American conservatives and their mission to safeguard white privilege in the United States.
