A Charlottesville eyewitness claims members of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the KKK and Nazis all arrived together on the same bus.
In a live interview with Charles Patrick, the eyewitness claims that protestors on both sides were seen departing the same buses, wearing shirts bearing different hate group logos.
Charles Patrick: “What color were these buses.”
Eyewitness: “They were like a dark charcoal gray. I didn’t notice any writing, but you know there was some trees and people and stuff in between us and the buses so, I mean I didn’t see any names, but I know they were all the same.
Charles Patrick: “The buses were all the same. I know you told me earlier they were like back to back, like bumper-to-bumper.”
Eyewitness: “Yeah, bumper-to-bumper, like when school buses all follow each other to an out-of-town football game. You know, they followed each other like, so they don’t change lanes, they were going bumper-to-bumper.
Charles Patrick: “I understand what you’re saying. They were together.”
Eyewitness: “Yes, so they pull up and my first thought is it’s a tour because I had been finding out about the history of the town and thought it’s a pretty interesting town. You know, there’s some rich culture here. Maybe there’s, I don’t know, a tour going on. You know, like old people go to Vegas together, you know.
Charles Patrick: “So, it’s a tourist town. So when you seen the buses, it was like a tourist bus?”
Eyewitness: “Yeah, that’s what I thought, it was like a charter bus. You know, the University of Virginia is here too so, it could have been for anything. So, everybody in the restaurant, I mean you could hear a cricket, everybody was just looking. So you could tell that the town, the locals were not used to seeing something like that. And I mean within, I want to say 10 or 15 seconds, people came running off the bus and just flooded the place. I don’t care what anybody says and I don’t care if anybody believes me, but these people came off that bus ready to, I don’t know work, ready to fight. They had on helmets. They had on kneepads and elbow pads and face guards and mouthpieces and purses and bags and backpacks full of things, carrying…
Charles Patrick: “Hold on. Were these all white people getting off the bus?”
Eyewitness: “No, no, no, no. There were just as many black people as there were white people getting off the same buses. There were just as many women as there were men.
Charles Patrick: “So, white people, black people, men and women got off the bus, is what you’re telling me. Right?”
Eyewitness: “Got off the SAME bus. I even saw some people carrying, you know those shields that police men use for riots that you see on videos and stuff, there were people carrying those off the bus.
Charles Patrick: “Really?”
Charles Patrick: “Now, these black and white people that got off the bus. Are these the ones that had on T-shirts?”
Eyewitness: “There was T-shirts. There was emblems. Now I don’t recognize all the different groups that are out there. The ones that I know of are BLM, Black Lives Matter, the KKK.”
Charles Patrick: “Now, you’ve seen these emblems, is what you’re saying?”
Eyewitness: “Yeah, I did and not just one or two. Everybody on those buses that came off those buses had something on there that caught my attention. ‘Oh my God, that’s the KKK. Oh my God, that’s the BLM.”
Charles Patrick: “Wait a minute. You’re telling me that Black Lives Matter and the KKK got off the same damn bus.”
Eyewitness: “Yeah, but wait a minute. Wait a minute. I think I might have left something out. Those people I was talking about who were having those civilized conversations in the restaurant and in the town, they were also BLM. Um, I didn’t see any KKK or anything like that, but after seeing the people you could tell, or they would even offer up the information that they were affiliated or associated or in the KKK or some other Arian, whatever, but they were having conversations with each other.”
Charles Patrick: “You’re saying that in the restaurants, Black Lives Matter and the KKK were having civil conversations?”
Eyewitness: “Yes, they were! They were talking like you and I are talking.
Charles Patrick: “Now, when everybody disembarked the buses, what happened then.”
Eyewitness: “Well um, there was a couple of men in the restaurant that kind of let us all back to the back door, which led into the alley. And a lot of us had parked there in the alley, but there was, I want to say, probably 20 or 30 of us. We went out the back door because the people from the buses were coming from the front. And they weren’t walking. They weren’t skipping. They were full on running and screaming and throwing things. I mean they came off the bus angered and running to do damage.”
