CHARLOTTESVILLE SUSPECT “WAS INFATUATED WITH THE NAZIS, WITH ADOLPH HITLER”

James Fields Jr., the suspect behind yesterday’s ramming attack on Charlottesville counter-protesters had “radical ideas on race” according to a former history teacher of his.

“He was very infatuated with the Nazis, with Adolf Hitler,” Weimer told WCPO. “He also had a huge military history, especially with German military history and World War II. But, he was pretty infatuated with that stuff.”

The New York Daily News reports that Mr. Field’s Facebook page was peppered with White Supremacist imagery, including Adolph Hitler’s baby photo and a photo of the Reichstag in Berlin.

“Indeed, Fields’ Facebook page was peppered with similar alt-right and Nazi imagery — such as Hitler’s baby photo; a tourist shot of the Reichstag in Berlin; and a cartoon of Pepe the Frog, the anthropomorphic frog hijacked by right-wing groups — before it was deactivated around 11:30 p.m. Saturday.”
