Their chants of "you will not replace us" and "blood and soil" were an homage to white supremacy.

"Heather Heyer was murdered while protesting against hate", the page reads.

Fields has been charged with second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count related to leaving the scene.

Some have called on President Donald Trump to deliver a more direct statement of disapproval after he spoke out against "this display of hatred, bigotry and violence and many sides".

"We white people who disagree - to put it mildly - should come collect our people".

On Saturday night, the FBI and federal prosecutors announced that a civil rights investigation had been opened into the vehicular death allegedly caused by James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Maumee, Ohio. "Trump's not a white supremacist", said Bloom.

Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer, a Democrat, blamed the violence on a poisoned political discourse in the country.

He said pieces of the helicopter started to break off as it fell from the sky.

"The president said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry, and hatred, and of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups", an administration figure said in the statement. The car killed a woman Heather Heyer, 32, and wounded 19 people.

Fields' mom was unaware of the rally or her son's ties to white nationalism.

Signer said he believes that Trump's campaign and the rhetoric that he used on the campaign trail last year emboldened racists and neo-Nazis across the country.

"Our message is plain and simple - go home", he said.

Unite The Right rally organizer Jason Kessler is helped by police after being tackled by a woman following his attempt to speak at a press conference in front of Charlottesville City Hall in Charlottesville, Virginia, August 13, 2017.

"What I'm asking you today to do is put the anger aside, as I did when I got up this morning", he continued.

Bossert is rejecting the claim that Trump had engaged in "a moral equivalency".
