The chilling worldview of this white supremacist who helped lead the Charlottesville rally shows why so many people are furious with Trump

charlottesville nazisVice News interviewed white supremacist Christopher Cantwell, who helped lead theCharlottesville rally

Cantwell embraced violent tactics and predicted more violence in the future

The extreme views he describes explain why so many are furious at President Trump over his Charlottesville response

For example, Cantwell says he hopes for a leader who is “a lot more racist than Donald Trump” and who “does not give his daughter to a Jew”

On Monday, “Vice News Tonight” published a chilling 22-minute documentary featuring interviews with several of the white nationalists who helped lead the “Unite the Right” rally that devolved into violence and chaos in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

Most prominently featured throughout the episode is Christopher Cantwell, a white supremacist who offers an in-depth description of his beliefs and his movement’s goals at the rally to VICE correspondent Elle Reeves.

In his remarks, Cantwell offers racist critiques of black and Jewish people, confirms that his movement is a violent one, and defends the death of Heather Heyer – the 32-year-old victim mowed down by a white supremacist last Saturday – as “justified.”

Cantwell’s comments, apart from their shock value, reveal the extremity of the views of the “Unite the Right” attendees – a point that critics of President Donald Trump have struggled to impress upon him in the wake of the deadly rally.

Trump has, so far, condemned the white nationalists, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis at the rally mostly by equating their actions with counter-protesters whom he called the “alt-left,” a term that was created by white nationalists and in fact refers to no specific group that self-identifies under the label.

“What about the alt-left that came charging at the – as you say – the alt-right?” Trump said Tuesday at a press conference in New York City. “You had, you had a group on one side that was bad. And you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now.”

He added that there were “very fine people on both sides.”

As VICE’s interview with Cantwell shows, the white nationalists at the rally openly embraced racism and violence as they descended on Charlottesville last weekend.

Hoping for a leader who is “a lot more racist than Donald Trump” and who “does not give his daughter to a Jew

At one point, Reeves asks whether Cantwell believes white people are capable of violence, to which he responds, “of course we’re capable.”

“I’m carrying a pistol, I go to the gym all the time, I’m trying to make myself more capable of violence,” he says.

Cantwell even disputes Reeves’ suggested description of the movement as “non-violent.”

“I’m not even saying we’re non-violent. I’m saying that f—— we did not aggress [sic]. We did not initiate force against anybody. We’re not non-violent, we’ll f—— kill these people if we have to,” he says.

At one point, Cantwell even says he hopes for a leader who is “a lot more racist than Donald Trump” and who “does not give his daughter to a Jew,” referring to the marriage between Trump’s daughter Ivanka and Jared Kushner, who are Jewish.

In a later segment of the documentary, Cantwell predicts that “a lot more people are going to die before we’re done here.”

He continues: “This is part of the reason that we want an ethno-state. The blacks are killing each other in staggering numbers from coast to coast – we don’t really want a part of that anymore, and so the fact that they resist us when we say we want a homeland is not shocking to me. These people want violence and the right is just meeting a market demand.”

Here’s exactly how much of the solar eclipse you’ll see where you live

solar eclipse hinodeNASA/Hinode/XRT

On August 21st, the US is getting a total solar eclipse -when the moon crosses between the Earth and the sun, blocking out the sun’s light -for the first time in decades. But only a 70-mile-wide streak of the country will see the eclipse in its totality; others will see only a partial eclipse.

A tool fromtheUS Naval Observatorycancalculate exactly how much of the upcoming solar eclipse you will see in your hometown. Enter your city, state, and approximate height at which youplan to view the eclipse. (For example, if you’ll watch it from the roof of a 10-story building, you’d put in 30 meters.)

NewYorkers will see about 71.4% of the total solar eclipse, meaning most of the sun will be obscured. The calculator also says that the best time to view the eclipse in New York City- which will last over 2.5 hours – will be approximately 2:45 pm ET.

Viewers inPortland, Oregon, however, will see about 99.4% of the eclipse, with the best viewat 10:19 am PT. This is a best case scenario, if there are few clouds in the sky.

As Business Insider previously reported, the best places in the US to see the eclipsewill be nearSalem, Oregon; Nashville, Tennessee; Kansas City, Missouri; Lincoln, Nebraska; and Columbia and Charleston, South Carolina.If those cities are far away from where you live, no need to fret – everyone in the US will see at least a partial eclipse.

Nightmarchers explores the lore of Hawaii in a postapocalyptic hellscape


The Hawaiian island of Oahu is a popular tourist destination in real life, but the new open world adventure Nightmarchers transforms it into a magical hellscape. Indie developer Wyrmbyte has created a postapocalyptic version of the tropical island where myths come to life. In 2018, it’ll launch in early access for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on BrightLocker, a platform for games that are still in development.

Nightmarchers plays on a Hawaiian legend of the same name, which describes a band of ghostly warriors that patrol the islands. The main character Kai has been resurrected on Oahu after it’s been ripped from time and space, and he must defeat a cult worshipping Kamapua’a, a god that’s depicted as malevolent and corrupted in Nightmarchers’ lore. Players will be able to join different factions of characters living on the island, build bases, and unlock mystical skills and abilities. The map is a re-creation of 500 square miles of actual Oahu terrain, and the studio drew inspiration for the story from different aspects of Hawaiian folklore.

At Wyrmbyte, we want to deliver quality games that present a fun and adrenaline-charged experience while honoring different religions and lore from around the world, said Scott Brown, Wyrmbyte’s president, in a press release. Nightmarchers is our first step in this direction so it was important to us that we accurately represent and honor the Hawaiian culture and its legendary landmarks and stories.

By launching the game on BrightLocker, the team will be able to communicate directly with players throughout early access.

Ask HN: Why hasn’t any company implemented free 1-day shipping?

It seems like in the cut throat world of retail; Amazon is killing it. I can’t help but think it has almost everything to do with their free two-day shipping. If this is the case, why hasn’t a giant like Walmart (or Jet), Target, or other company embraced free 1-day shipping?

I know the obvious answer would be ‘it costs too much’. If that’s the case why don’t they try to Amazon it? (Amazon it – Have a great idea, lose a ton of cash, gain traction, figure out how to monetize it.)
