The VA clash was a set up by the local government (a very left, Charlottesville). They could not legally deny the permit but they then allowed the AntiFa, etc. to organize to confront. The cops took no action to keep the legal assembly and the attacking illegal mob separate.
The police chief aware who employs him, lied when he said that his cops and the guardsmen were not told to stand down. One of the chief NYC cops (can’t remember name) said immediately that they “would never let those two groups come within eyesight of each other”. McAuliffe, the corrupt Democrat Clintonite robber baron governor and wannabe president, lied outright about the set up of the clash by the city leaders. Crooked lying sob libs.
This was just sent out by University of Florida. Thought you would find this interesting.

Dear Campus Community:
Amid serious concerns for safety, we have decided to deny the National Policy Institute’s request to rent event space at the University of Florida.
This decision was made after assessing potential risks with campus, community, state and federal law enforcement officials following violent clashes in Charlottesville, Va., and continued calls online and in social media for similar violence in Gainesville such as those decreeing: “The Next Battlefield is in Florida.”
That said, the University of Florida remains unwaveringly dedicated to free speech and the spirit of public discourse. However, the First Amendment does not require a public institution to risk imminent violence to students and others.
The likelihood of violence and potential injury – not the words or ideas – has caused us to take this action.
