The diverse group of people who came to oppose a weekend gathering of white nationalists in this Virginia college town seemed to outnumber the rallygoers.Instead, it was a largely organic effort among groups who shared the same mission: showing that hate wasn't welcome.Officials have not provided a crowd estimate, but there appeared to be at least 500 people supporting the rally sparked by Charlottesville's decision to remove a Confederate monument.Many of the rally attendees stood behind barriers officials had put up, waiting for the event to get underway.The rally leaders, including organizer Jason Kessler – a local right-wing blogger and activist – urged supporters to go home.That was quickly shattered when a car plowed into the crowd, hurling people into the air.
