Snopes: Pic Of 'Antifa' Member Beating Cop In Charlottesville Was Photoshopped


Fact-checking website Snopes looked into a photo which went viral after last weekend's white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia and found the image had been doctored to look like an anti-fascist protester beating a police officer.

Neo-nazis/white supremacists shared the pic as proof that protesters denouncing the "white power" rally were just as violent as the haters themselves.

Not true.

The pic was actually taken during a clash between police and protesters in Athens, Greece in 2009.

Watch the video below, and remember: everything you see on the internet isn't
