White supremacy protests in Charlottesville, Va., devolve into a chaotic day of violence
A Missouri man has been identified as a white supremacist after he was identified in a video of last weekend’s Charlottesville, Va., rally.
Clark Canepa, 21, is shown holding a tiki torch and chanting alongside white nationalists, “You will not replace us!”
Canepa appears a few seconds into a Vice News short documentary.
Canepa is a 2014 graduate of Ladue Horton Watkins High School near St. Louis, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
At the Friday rally, other chants included “Jews will not replace us” and “Blood and Soil,” a common slogan in Nazi Germany.
Canepa said he had a fantastic time in an interview with Zotos. He told KMOV that he doesn’t identify as a white nationalist but as an “American patriot.”
The Post-Dispatch reported Canepa’s sister posted a statement on Facebook about her brother: “All I can do is apologize for my brother’s actions. I do not condone them under any circumstances.”
