White Supremacist who used “Battle of Berkeley” as testing ground for Charlottesville Nazi rally.

I’m posting this in reference to the first part of my show, Inauguration Vacation, in which I tell the story of my personal experience at the “Battle of Berkeley.” Since I wrote the piece, more and more videos of the event have been uploaded to Youtube of moments of violence I didn’t see personally because I kept a safe distance. Most of them are by the hardcore right wing to both portray themselves as victims of Anti-Fa and as victors whenever they hurt someone on the other side. The comments sections are particularly horrifying.

A few days ago, I learned that White Supremacist Nathan Damigo of Identity Evropa, one of the leaders of the recent neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, said he viewed this “Patriot’s Day” rally in Berkeley as a test run to see how far they could go with their violent protests. You can see a video of him punching a 19-year-old woman in the face at the protest and read about it in this local report.
