The white nationalist behind last year's Charlottesville protests, Jason Kessler, has been given air time on NPR, much to listeners' disgust.
White nationalist and member of the alt-right, Kessler was invited onto NPR's morning programme to discuss the second white nationalist rally, 'Unite the right 2', which will be held in Washington DC on Sunday.
It was reported that Kessler was granted his permit to hold the rally in Washington DC on Thursday, which was approved by the National Park Service.
Last year's Charlottesville protest was organised by Kessler to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, a confederate general. As a result of the protests, a 32-year-old woman Heather Heyer was killed, and more than a dozen people were injured.
We have chosen not to disclose the contents of the interview, because of its racist and abhorrent content.
Needless to say, the internet is disgusted by the fact that he was invited onto the programme.
Taking to Twitter, many people expressed their disgust.
Hey @NPR I really wish that you hadn’t given Jason Kessler a platform to spew his nonsense.
