One of the most iconic images from this weekend’s “Unite the Right” rally in Virginia is of a young man holding a Tiki torch, his face contorted in what appears to be a scream of anger and rage. The photo quickly went viral, but now the person in the picture is trying to convince us that he’s really not an “angry racist.”
Peter Cvjetanovic, age 20, traveled all the way from Reno, Nevada to Charlottesville, just to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. And Cvjetanovic insists that he’s not a bad person, even though he made trip as a way of supporting the larger white nationalist movement in the United States.
Cvjetanovic told KTVN:
“I came to this march for the message that white European culture has a right to be here just like every other culture. 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.”
What Robert E. Lee stood for was the continuation of slavery and the subjugation of African-Americans who had been brought to this country illegally and against their will. Didn’t this moron learn anything in American history class?
Cvjetanovic also noted that he’s surprised the picture of him has gone viral, probably because he didn’t expect to be exposed as a racist asshole:
“I did not expect the photo to be shared as much as it was. 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.
“As a white nationalist, I care for all people. We all deserve a future for our children and for our culture. White nationalists aren’t all hateful; we just want to preserve what we have.”
As a white nationalist, you care for all people? Is this douchebag kidding me? He only cares about white people. Meaning he rejects anyone of color and anyone that isn’t a pretend “Christian” like him. He and others in his movement hate Jews, Muslims, and Catholics. The white nationalist movement is filled with mentally defective, inbred shitheads who have a deep-seated need to feel superior to someone because their own lives are so pathetic.
So, Peter, fuck you and your whining! You made your bed, now you have to lay in it. You have no one to blame but yourself. Fuck you and all of your racist friends. You should have stayed in Reno and kept your hatred to yourself, asshole.
