The National Park Service has issued the official permits for Jason Kessler and the Unite The Right rally in Washington, DC, and the Answer Coalition's counter-protest that will take place this Sunday. The locations of each are Freedom Square for the counter-protest and in front of the White House in Lafayette Park for the Unite the Right. There are those who look at the counter-rally on Sunday and say that if you ignore these neo-Nazi, white supremacist, white nationalist racists, they will crawl back into the rodent holes they came out of and go away. Kessler and his crew call this a "white civil rights rally." What does that mean?
It's Friday, and we've also got your hot topics! Seven years of relentless conflict in Syria have wreaked destruction that the United Nations says has cost the country close to $400 billion. And conflict continues between Gaza fighters and the Israeli military as Hamas and Israel said a ceasefire between the two is in "advanced stages" to avoid a fourth war in a decade.
We've got all that and more!
