The father of a self-described white nationalist who marched at Saturday’s Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, says his son is no longer welcome home. Pearce Tefft of Fargo, North Dakota, posted the open letter Monday, writing that his son Peter’s values are not shared by his family: “I, along with all of his siblings and his entire family, wish to loudly repudiate my son’s vile, hateful, and racist rhetoric and actions. We do not know specifically where he learned these beliefs. He did not learn them at home.”

… Pearce said that family members originally stayed silent about Peter’s white nationalist beliefs, but ultimately realized that was a mistake: “It was the silence of good people that allowed the Nazis to flourish the first time around, and it is the silence of good people that is allowing them to flourish now.”

… In a Facebook post on Monday, Peter Tefft defended the alleged driver who rammed a car into a group of protesters on Saturday: “Fatal crashes happen all the time, and it is clear that the young man’s car was being attacked on all sides by a roving mob of Antifa when he slammed the gas pedal and accelerated. He will be acquitted because his life was clearly in danger.”
