This documentary on Charlottesville violence shows how white supremacists spew hate

Christopher Cantwell banned from OkCupid

"I'd say it was worth it", Cantwell concludes, evincing no regret about the weekend's proceedings as he removes four separate guns from his person.

The 22-minute-long documentary follows a group of white supremacists as they organise the Charlottesville rally.

At least one YouTuber put together a mashup of the disconnects between the Cantwell we see in the Vice mini-doc and the one we see in Wednesday's video.

"So, Donald Trump, but like, more racist?"

"I'm armed. I do not want violence with you".

Video from Saturday's protests show Black Lives Matter and anti-facist protestors with backpacks and signs. He even said he would prefer the president to be "a lot more racist than Donald Trump". The last time I recall seeing white supremacists so openly sharing on camera outside their own media is an essential 1991 movie called "Blood in the Face", which is set at a "pro-white" convention.

Cantwell also says that he spends time at the gym and carries a pistol - like many of his comrades - "to make myself more capable of violence".

Those chants swiftly make way for shouts of "Jews will not replace us", and numerous right-wing protagonists continue to use racists slurs for Jewish people and African Americans throughout the video. Soon, Cantwell's pledge becomes chilling and devastatingly prescient. "Of course we're capable", he says.

"I don't think that you could feel about race the way that I do and watch that Kushner b-- walk around with that attractive girl, OK?"

The episode also includes footage of a vehicle plowing into a crowd, which left one woman, Heather Heyer, dead. The documentary also shows members of the protests justifying Heather's death by saying that her death was "more than justified".

As frightening as the weekend's violence was, local activist Tanesha Hudson doesn't find it shocking, especially for black people who live in Charlottesville.

In the Vice News special, where Cantwell is prominently featured, he told reporter Elle Reeve that he was waiting for a political savior like Donald Trump, but "a lot more racist" and someone "who does not give his daughter to a Jew", a reference to Ivanka Trump's marriage to Jared Kushner. "This is what we deal with every day being African-American and this has always been the reality of Charlottesville".
