On Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017, a rally was held in Charlottesville, Va., called "Unite the Right." While the United States supports free speech and the right to peaceably assemble, this event was nothing of the sort. Violence, bigotry, and hatred were promoted by the organizers of the rally. The many injuries and the deaths of three people were evidence that this demonstration was designed to divide, rather than unite.
