- In wake of Charlottesville, Bay Area law enforcement girds for protests
By Peter Fimrite and Joe Garofoli - Monday Aug 14, 2017
The violence and death sparked by white supremacist marchers in Charlottesville, Va. last weekend was, to most people, a frightening look into a fringe hate-group philosophy that experts say is resurgent across the country. The images of Ku Klux Klansmen and a reported Nazi sympathizer allegedly driving his car into a crowd of counter-protesters — killing a woman and injuring at least 19 — also suggest a widening cultural rift is stretching from the old plantation homes in the south, across the Great Plains all the way into the liberal enclaves in the Bay Area. President Trump denounced the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis Monday after being widely criticized for an earlier denunciation of violence “on all sides.” The 31-year-old white supremacist who grew up in Silivcon Valley was caught on video punching a dreadlocked woman in the face during the Berkeley clash. On Monday, he told The Chronicle that police were to blame for the violence during the Charlottesville protest, which started as a demonstration against removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. James A. Fields Jr., 20, of Maumee, Ohio, was arrested on second-degree murder charges. Damigo said Fields may have been caught in the middle of a violent crowd, panicked and lost control of the vehicle. “There are tens of thousands of neo-Nazis and white supremacy groups in the U.S. and they seem to have formed alliances with other fringe groups like militias who are sympathetic,” said Jack Glaser, a social psychologist and professor who studies prejudice and discrimination at UC Berkeley. A permit has been issued for a “Patriot Prayer” group to gather Aug. 26 at Crissy Field, according to Sonja Hanson, spokeswoman for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The group is ostensibly religious, but its purpose is really “an attempt to provoke black-clad ideologues on the left into acts of violence,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups. The group has not yet applied for a permit, but police are making plans to respond should the gathering turn violent, Arreguin said. “We will be prepared to keep our community safe and prevent any destruction of property,” Arreguin said. Alt-right personalities know their cause is helped by news footage of large jeering crowds, heated confrontations and outright violence at their events. Glaser said having a black president for eight years angered many racists and President Trump emboldened them with his anti-immigration campaign speeches and, most recently, his delay in condemning white supremacist violence. If anything, there has been an awakening, a greater recognition of the problems racial minorities face and this is, in part, a backlash to the awakening.
