    The group carried tiki torches and walked through the streets to the park which has a statue of Robert E. Lee covered in a tarp.

    The crowd was heard chanting “You will not replace us,” and “We will be back,” according to WCAV.

    The rally, which lasted about 20 minutes, comes about two months after the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville Aug. 12.

    “Another despicable visit by neo-Nazi cowards,” Signer said. “You’re not welcome here. Go home.”

     

     

     

     

     

    The group was led by Spencer, who runs the National Policy Institute and is known for his rhetoric which mixes racism, white nationalism and populism. 

    “We came, we triggered, we left,” Spencer said in a tweet. “We did an in and out flash mob. We came in peace tonight. It was a great success and we’re going to do it again.”
