So on Tuesday, when a man decided to stand in front of the statue of Robert E. Lee that was at the center of the protest, in full Confederate gear no less, people were pissed.
According to The Daily Progress, Allen Armentrout of North Carolina came to the park with a Confederate flag, a rifle, and a semiautomatic handgun to "honor and defend the Confederate general," but disagreed with the "Unite the Right" rally's views and condemned the actions that took the life of 32-year-old Heather Heyer.
Armentrout explained: "I’m out here to honor my ancestors and honor the men who died under the command of Robert E. Lee, and I think me being out here shows that I hope to accomplish the fact that the world can see that there’s non-racist pro-Confederate people out there that love freedom and independence."
