Torch-bearing white nationalists gather around a statue of Robert E. Lee during a demonstration Friday night in Charlottesville, Va.

The 33-year-old man photographed on Friday wearing an "Arkansas Engineering" T-shirt at a widely condemned Charlottesville, Va., rally said he never intended to bring shame to the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

Mr. Dodson is a brave man to come forward and I D himself because of the trouble coming to the person that had been miss Identified . Has the person that named the Professor as the person wearing the tee shirt come forward and apologized? Remember Dodson was at a rally that had a permit to be there and they were attached. Taking down memorials will not change the past.

You are half correct. He was legally marching with Nazis. Nazis are good at paper work, I guess.
But, he was man enough to come Fwd. My guess is he knew he was going to be found out. Self preservation.

This guy, whatever his beliefs, did the right thing by manning up and coming forward. Unlike the terrorist anifa, he never covered his face and engaged in peaceful protest.

Where is the confession and apology from the guy who started the false I D in the first place? Guess he will remain an "anonymous source".

In this hate-filled, "shoot from the hip" time we are living in now, this should be a lesson to all of us. No matter what our views, ALL of us need to slow down, take some deep breaths. Next we need to do a LOT of careful research and think twice--or maybe THREE times--or MORE--before we run to our various media formats with our thoughts, videos, photos. Then, perhaps, we would not have so much half-baked, ill-informed, knee-jerk, hate-spewing misinformation that can cause great damage to good people like this innocent professor AND further stir the HatePot. It is time for the hate to go, folks. Remember the quote from one of our country's leaders? "United we stand. Divided we fall."

He manned up to help others. He gave his accurate side. The people and media that ran with it and falsely accused others should be held accountable monetarily for slander defamation or libel.

Yes, but did he shout anti-Jewish slogans? What these people said and did was HORRIBLE.

I would say that I can't believe the ignorance of some of you people, but then again, I grew up here. What has this country come to? We're so politically divided that we're going to praise this guy for coming forward (after embarrassing our state) and try to blame a group on the other side (anti-fascist) for this whole situation? Don't get me wrong, I know both groups are guilty, but you people are so far gone that you're now taking sides? Defending one group or the other? What the hell is going on?

This is exactly what the news media wants. They lead you around by the noses, tell you half-truths so you'll keep coming back for more. No better way to do that than to make sure you have an enemy. So many people are addicted to anger, too lazy to try to understand more than one point of view and all the while these entertainment news networks are cashing checks.

I know this is wasted time, but maybe it's therapy for me. I just ask that some of you guys disconnect from this nonsense for a little while and remember that the vast majority of us are good people just trying to live the best life we can while we're here. More than any other thing, that's our true history.
