New York, NY (August 24, 2017) - NowThis has uncovered never-before-seen footage of murder suspect James Fields marching in the Charlottesville rally that took place on August 12, 2017. The footage was taken shortly before Fields allegedly drove his car into a crowd of anti-fascist protesters, killing one and injuring 19. In the video clips above, Fields can be seen chanting "blood and soil" and "Jews will not replace us" while marching alongside white supremacists with the hate group Vanguard America.
