    “Well before a white nationalist “Unite the Right” demonstration turned deadly in Charlottesville this month, attendees were planning for violence, according to leaked online chats. In private chat channels, they shared advice on weaponry and tactics, including repeatedly broaching the idea of driving vehicles through opposition crowds. After the vehicular attack which killed counterprotestor Heather Heyer, users of the channel celebrated the event.
    The discussions took place on a private channel created using Discord, a service primarily intended for gamers.” (Fortune magazine 8/26/17) http://fortune.com/2017/08/26/charlottesville-violence-leaked-chats/
