The Charlottesville Incident is beginning to come together. The first witness to speak to the news media and to tweet about the event is Brennan Gilmore. He was presented as an accidental witness, but who is he really?
Here is his first tweet:
Excellent answer, Brennan Gilmore. pic.twitter.com/n8iuLYRK74

Brennan Gilmore, a 38-year-old Charlottesville resident who came Saturday to oppose the white nationalists, was filming his friends demonstrating three blocks away from the park when he noticed a gray car drive past.
Mr. Gilmore turned his camera in time to see the car slow as it approached the counterprotesters and then suddenly speed up, ramming into the car in front of it and the crowd itself.
“Bodies went flying — up onto the hood of the car and into the air,” Mr. Gilmore said. “It was horrifying.”
Mr. Gilmore continued filming as the gray car backed up quickly to escape the scene. After the car left, Mr. Gilmore ran over to help provide first aid to some of the injured.
“The violence and hatred in our society is out of control. We like to think that it’s better than places like Africa and Asia, but it’s not,” said Mr. Gilmore, who worked in Africa as a U.S. State Department foreign service officer before leaving to manage the campaign of Tom Perriello for Virginia governor earlier this year. “I’m worried.”
Now, who is Tom Perriello? archive.fo/6ip6s
Democrat Tom Perriello’s fundraising haul of $2.2 million in the first three months of 2017, the highest among all candidates in Virginia’s governor’s race, was powered in part by several six-figure checks from outside the state, including $385,000 from billionaire investor George Soros and his sons and $200,000 from a New York-based nonprofit Perriello co-founded a decade ago.
Perriello’s second-largest contribution was the $250,000 from Soros, a major liberal donor viewed by the right as a shadowy benefactor behind a wide variety of left-wing causes such as the Center for American Progress, the liberal think tank Perriello worked for after leaving Congress. Perriello received an additional $125,000 from Alexander Soros and $10,000 from Jonathan Soros, who, like their father, have a history of contributing to progressive and Democratic endeavors.
MSN interviewed Gilmore and established his connection to Tom Perriello. www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/witnesses-describe-panic-chaos-in-charlottesvile/ar-AApVEFO?ocid=ob-tw-enus-702
Brennan Gilmore, a former staffer for gubernatorial candidate Tom Perriello, filmed the panic at Water and Fourth streets in downtown Charlottesville. His 45-second cellphone video captured the gray Dodge Challenger with Ohio plates racing toward the crowd — hitting it, then reversing away with a damaged windshield and front end.
“He slowed down, targeted the crowd and slammed on the gas. Bodies went flying everywhere,” Gilmore told USA TODAY. “We all started running to give first aid, but then he backed up and I thought he might make another run at the crowd.”
The video captures screaming and the shocked crowd as at least nine people were injured. Those nearby can be heard shouting “Medic!” as the crowd flees to get clear of the car and eventually chase it down.
Gilmore called the crash “deliberate terrorism” and said he shared the video with police and media.
OK, we see the connection from the first witness, who arrived on the scene in Charlottesville, interviewed by MSN – to the man who ran for governor of Virginia, Tom Perriello – to George Soros and his son Alex Soros.
There is the major piece of the Charlottesville puzzle. It is the connection to the first witness on the scene interviewed and his connection to George Soros.
It is also being reported by sources such as Allen West that Alex Fields was scared to death, and his car was first attacked by Black Lives Matter before he sped up. There is a video that has surfaced to show this.
Here is a video made of Trump supporters being assaulted.

The video is courtesy of GATEWAY PUNDIT, and it shows the way Trump supporters have been treated from the beginning. It plainly shows the violent ANTIFA.
Here is a new video which has emerged, and it shows how Alex Fields was attacked by BLM and Antifa before he became afraid and sped up.
In this article, it is asked “where were the police?”
At a Sunday morning press conference, Governor Terry McAuliffe defended the police, and claimed that nothing could have been done to prevent “car terrorism.” Others disagreed, and argued that police should have done more to separate the combatants during the morning riot (here, here, here, and here.) Photographic coverage of the event was extensive.
After the riot, reports began to circulate that there was a police stand-down. Infowars reporter Millie Weaver claims that a police officer admitted to her that the mayor had given a stand-down order. Doug McKelway told Fox News viewers that police left the scene when tear gas from the protestors began to fly:
“But when the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate then. I asked the guy who was in charge, ‘Where are you going?’ He said, ‘We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.’ They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to.”
Breitbart reports that a city official denied this in an email:
“When asked whether orders were given on Saturday for police to stand down, Charlottesville Director of Communications Miriam Dickler told Breitbart News in an email that ‘no stand down orders were given on Saturday.’ ”
However, details of the city’s tactical strategy began to emerge in a New York Times report from Sheryl Gay Stolberg. Stolberg reported that:
Brian Moran, Virginia’s secretary of public safety and homeland security, was watching the events from a command post on the sixth floor of a Wells Fargo bank on the downtown mall. There were sporadic fights. ‘I compare it to hockey,’ he said. ‘Often in hockey there are sporadic fights, and then they separate.’
Suddenly, people were throwing water bottles, some filled with urine. Some used pepper spray; from his perch on the sixth floor, Mr. Moran saw smoke bombs being thrown. People started clubbing one another. The clergy retreated to a ‘safe house’ — a restaurant nearby.
Finally, Moran decided he had seen enough, and he called Governor McAuliffe at 11:22 a.m. and advised the governor to shut down the event. By 11:35 a.m., a tweet from Charlottesville City Hall had declared the legal rally an unlawful assembly, and Governor McAuliffe had declared a state of emergency. The legal demonstrators were ordered to disperse.
According to Stolberg:
Asked why the police did not do more to control the brawling, Mr. Moran said, ‘It was a volatile situation and it’s unfortunate people resorted to violence.’
‘But,’ he said, ‘from our plan, to ensure the safety of our citizens and property, it went extremely well.’
Moran’s admissions to Stolberg establish that city officials had strategized about possible outcomes and had decided to permit some level of violence, with a heckler’s veto ready and waiting to shut it down.
In a public statement, UTR organizer Jason Kessler claims:
We networked with law enforcement officials and safety arrangements were made months ago, but despite this, the Charlottesville Police Department not only failed to act per the plan but exacerbated the violence: they did not separate the demonstrators and counter-demonstrators, they were poorly underequipped for the situation, they stood idly by when violent counter-protesters attacked the participants of the rally and then they forced our demonstrators out of Lee Park and into a melee with Antifa.
Moran’s and Kessler’s statements suggest that city officials actually implemented a plan separate from the safety plan they negotiated with Kessler. Was Kessler set up for violence?
I am going to close this article with the following video tweet that also shows how the vehicle of Alex Fields’ was assaulted before he sped forward and behind killing one person and injuring 19 others.

In my opinion the rally was setup from the beginning for violence and to possibly start a civil war in this Country . In the end, the Far Left will do everything it can to oust President Trump and destroy America.
