White Nationalists Groups Plan to Be ‘more Active Than Ever'

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — White nationalists say a Virginia rally was a landmark in what they’re calling an expanding drive to promote their agenda.

A counterdemonstrator was killed when a car plowed into a crowd and the U.S. Justice Department says it will investigate.

But white nationalists are portraying the overall demonstration as a victory because hundreds of supporters attended. And they say more events are coming.

A pro-Confederate group has asked to rally in support of a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee next month in Richmond, Virginia. And the University of Florida says white nationalist Richard Spencer has asked to speak there.
