Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Tyler D.R. Magill, an employee with the University of Virginia's Alderman Library, suffered a stroke Tuesday that may be related to injuries he sustained in a violent melee with white supremacists on the university's Lawn Friday night, a friend of his family confirmed Wednesday. Magill was admitted around 10 a.m. Tuesday to the university's medical center, where doctors found that his carotid artery was partially dissected, causing a clot that resulted in a stroke, Magill's wife confirmed to The Chronicle through a family friend. Doctors at the medical center suspect that the stroke is the result of blunt force trauma to the neck, the source told The Chronicle.

"They marched up the lawn in an endless line," Magill said. "At this point I was so shellshocked I sat down on the steps of the Rotunda. They just walked around me chanting. I saw they were starting to surround 20 or 30 students."

At that point, Magill recalled, he felt the students were in serious danger.

"I was just thinking, Be with them; maybe my presence will change something," he said. "I figured if they're willing to kill 25 people, maybe they're not willing to kill 26."

Another hero who put his life on the line to stand up to the Nazi's.

Trump said he had to check the facts before he could comment. Maybe he should have spent some more time checking.

Still think there was a violent clash that could be blamed on both sides that night?

Trump said only one side had a permit to march. I still cannot find where the Nazi's were permitted to carry torches onto the campus. The students have a right to be on their own campus they do not need a permit for that. Those students were surrounded and violently assaulted with those torches.

What say you Trumpeters?

Both sides still equally to blame?

Nobody liked the word Nazi attached to politicians but there may be something worse that exists called alt right?

You know some will be here to blame the mythical of Charlottesville "AntiFa" that peacefully surrounded the statue of Jefferson in protest and were set upon by violent nazi filth.

Every time he opens his stupid mouth he alienates more real Americans.

And no, no one who is a Nazi is also an American. They are Nazis. Own it Nazis. This is not your country. We hate you and hope you die or leave.

The Unite the right organizers should get billed for the police costs and the hospital bills of everyone affected by their goons

Not just bill them but whoever hit this guy damaging his carotid artery should be found and charged with attempted murder.
