Jason Kessler, the man who organized yesterday’s “Unite The Right” white supremacy rally that turned violent, just held a press conference – and unsurprisingly, it didn’t go well.
White supremacist blogger Kessler, who is a member of Gavin McInnes’ “Proud Boys” group of alt-right losers, was greeted with boos and cries of “SHAME!”

He was then promptly escorted from the scene by police and ended up being literally chased out of town by crowds of angry protestors.

To top it all off, he was eventually tackled by this woman, who somehow managed to keep her sunglasses on!

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. A woman is dead and twenty more are injured because this man organized a hate rally; he should be shamed and ostracized every time he dares to show his Nazi face in public again.
