UNR Student In Viral Photo Speaks Out For First Time Since Charlottesville Protests

You may have seen it, a photo of a young white male holding a tiki torch and shouting in protest to the glow of the firelight. The young man featured in the photo is Peter Cvjetanovic, a 20 year old student at University of Nevada, Reno. The photo was first published during the night time protest over the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee in Charolettesville, Virginia. Cvjetanovic was protesting as part of a group of white nationalists but insists he is not racist as nearly every other source to comment online has suggested.

Speaking out for the first time since the photo's release, Cvjetanovic defends his position. “I came to this march for the message that white European culture has a right to be here just like every other culture. It is not perfect; there are flaws to it, of course. However I do believe that the replacement of the statue will be the slow replacement of white heritage within the United States and the people who fought and defended and built their homeland. Robert E Lee is a great example of that. He wasn’t a perfect man, but I want to honor and respect what he stood for during his time.”

It is a troubling period in time where any group of white people gathering to celebrate their own identity are labeled as racists and bigots. Cvjetanovic position as he explained it is very reasonable and he neither shared nor promoted any views that whites are superior to any other races or spread any hate. He is simply concerned that white history will erode away and wants others to know that whites have just as much of a right as any other culture to be in America. That is an idea that faces lot's of opposition in today's world where any type of white pride is immediately labeled racist.

Ah, good old Jim, the man who incites hatred whilst simultaniously staying safe outside the U.S in the Philippines. What a zero

Shills will be first in line on the day of the rope

Shill, oh no apparently if you have a different opinion you must be a shill. Why don't you ask Jim about why he started this site shortly after Trump lawyers visited the Philippines, you know, where Jim ran off with his money. Who's the paid shill now? Oh, as for your empty threat about the 'rope', I would LOVE to see you try, mind you wouldn't it be ironic, a shill kissing fag trying to hang a guy for pointing out a shill site owner
