The case of Jacob Dix, who has been charged with “using fire to intimidate” during the torch march at the University of Virginia (UVA) campus in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 11, 2017, the night before the Unite the Right rally, has ended in a mistrial after the jury was unable to come to a unanimous verdict. This was the most significant setback yet for the George Soros-backed Albemarle County Commonwealth Attorney Jim Hingeley and his antifa assistant Lawton Tufts, men who decided to pursue charges against peaceful protesters six years after the fact for political reasons.

No evidence was presented that Dix assaulted anyone or used his torch for anything other than presenting the message of the political demonstration he was involved in, which opposed the replacement of whites and their history throughout the West. The entire case was presented as an opportunity to put Dix on trial for the Second World War and anti-Semitism since a minority of the protesters had chanted, “Jews will not replace us.” The prosecution called Diane D’Acosta, who is brown but identifies as Jewish, to say that she had heard chanting from her dorm room on the UVA lawn and was afraid.
