Shocking footage has been released by Vice News, offering a chilling look at the white supremacists involved in the violent Charlottesville rally – and a disturbing prediction that more people will die.
A Vice News camera crew followed a racist alt-right leader Christopher Cantwell and fellow bigots as violence erupted in the streets, leaving an anti-racism activist dead.
As clashes broke out between counter-protesters, Cantwell declares: “We’re not non-violent, we’ll f***ing kill these people if we have to.”
Cantwell anticipated more violence at the white supremacists’ next rally, saying: “I think a lot more people are going to die before we’re done here.”
Vice correspondent Elle Reeve went behind the lines with white supremacists and, in particular, Cantwell, 36, who believes a race war is inevitable and argues for an “Anglo ethno state” without blacks, Jews or immigrants who aren’t white.
The 22-minute documentary is filled with chilling declarations and warnings from white supremacists, including Robert Ray, who says: “We’re starting to slowly unveil a little bit of our power level, you ain’t seen nothing yet.”
The video offers an insight into the racist minds of the rally’s organizers and supporters, who were flanked by a heavily-armed militia.

Cantwell, smirking, predicted further protests and more violence, adding: “I’d say [Charlottesville is] going to be really tough to top but we’re up to the challenge.
“I think a lot more people are going to die before we’re done here, frankly. Why? Because people die every day.
“People die violent deaths all of the time, this is part of the reason we want an etho state.”
Cantwell and fellow white supremacists have been condemned by leaders and groups around the world for their hateful views and the violence on Saturday.
However, US President Donald Trump has been criticized for failing to swiftly condemn the white supremacists and suggesting that “two sides” shared the blame. During a Tuesday afternoon press conference, Trump called the white supremacists “very fine people.”
