Records from a Seattle federal court show Eric Lin, 35, originally from Clarksburg, Maryland appeared Monday on charges brought by FBI offices in Florida. Lin was charged with interstate transmission of threatening communication.
On the evening of August 11, white supremacists, nationalists, neo-Nazis and racist demonstrators marched through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville, Virginia. Many carried burning tiki torches while chanting “white lives matter,” “you will not replace us,” and the Nazi-associated phrase “blood and soil.”
The vast majority of the demonstrators were from out of town, having traveled from all over the country to protest the removal of a statue depicting Confederate General Robert E. Lee, who once said he never wanted a monument erected in his name. And yet Charlottesville philanthropist Paul Goodloe McIntire commissioned a statue in Lee’s likeness in 1917 and later dedicated the memorial in the whites-only Lee Park.
