Woman From Portland Arrested at Charlottesville Protest
Chloe Lubin (29) from Portland was arrested Sunday in Charlottesville, Virginia at a rally to mark the one year anniversary of the deadly protest.
According to The Portland Press Herald, Lubin was one of 4 people arrested during a rally as counter protesters were in the streets to remember Heather Heyer. Heather was the woman killed one year ago during a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville when neo-Nazis and KKK members protested removing a monument for Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
The Press Herald reported:
Lubin, who was charged with assault and battery, disorderly conduct, obstruction of justice and possession of a concealed weapon. All of the charges are misdemeanors and Lubin was released on an unsecured bond Sunday.
She's accused of spitting on a demonstrator and also of having a metal baton on her.
Meanwhile, the giant rally planned in Washington, D.C. to mark the anniversary was a bust. There were, by far, way more counter protesters chanting, 'Go home, Nazis!' 'No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!' and 'Black lives matter!'
It drowned out any message the white supremacists tried to spread. Ahhhh, good over evil.
