This Alt-Righter Now Regrets Becoming The Viral Face Of Hate In America: ‘I’m Not The Angry Racist They See’

A white nationalist who traveled from Nevada to Virginia to march along neo-nazis says that he is not the “angry racist” that is portrayed in a viral photo of him carrying a torch at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

Twenty-year-old Peter Cvjetanovic, who attends the University Of Nevada, told KTVN-2 News that he wanted to attend the rally to support the white nationalist movement and to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

“I came to this march for the message that white European culture has a right to be here just like every other culture,” the student said. “It is not perfect; there are flaws to it, of course. However, I do believe that the replacement of the statue will be the slow replacement of white heritage within the United States and the people who fought and defended and built their homeland. Robert E Lee is a great example of that. He wasn’t a perfect man, but I want to honor and respect what he stood for during his time.”

Cvjetanovic said that he never expected the frightening photo of him to go viral. Unfortunately for him, it did.

“I did not expect the photo to be shared as much as it was,” he told the station. “I understand the photo has a very negative connotation. But I hope that the people sharing the photo are willing to listen that I’m not the angry racist they see in that photo.”
