The headline for the article says he is an “Ex-white nationalist” but I don’t buy it.

A fourth man was found guilty Friday of brutally attacking a 20-year-old African American man in a city parking garage during the deadly “Unite the Right” white nationalist rally in 2017.
Tyler Watkins Davis, 50, of Middleburg, Fla., once a member of a white nationalist group, the League of the South, entered an Alford plea in Charlottesville Circuit Court on a malicious wounding charge. The Alford plea acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him in the assault on DeAndre Harris, a former special education instructional assistant.
During Friday’s hearing, prosecutors told Judge Richard E. Moore that Davis was seen on video whacking Harris on the head with a wooden stick — a “tire thumper.” The injury gave Harris such a large laceration on his head that it required eight staples.
Davis, through his attorney, told The Washington Post after the hearing that he has renounced white nationalism.
Yeah, see that is just bullshit.
This guy “renounced” white nationalism in the hopes of getting a lighter sentence.
Once he gets to prison I imagine he will have “White Power” and a swastika tattooed on his chest and probably shave his head.
Of the three guys who were sentenced before him, one got eight years, one got six, and one got four.
Davis is expected to get the lightest sentence because he only struck Harris one time, instead of multiple times.
The only reason these four were even arrested is that internet sleuths found the video of the attack and managed to identify the suspects.
If not for them these assholes would likely have walked free, and continued attending rallies and attacking black people indefinitely.
Also, keep in mind that these are the thugs that Donald Trump suggested were probably among the “good people on both sides.”
