Plagued by infighting and cancelled gigs, the alt-right has been quiet lately. But as we approach the first anniversary of the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, some groups are back in the streets.
The far-right “Mother of All Rallies” was supposed to be a giant pro-Trump event where overt shows of racism were not welcome. But the crowd was surprisingly small, neo-Nazis attended, and the entire event was overshadowed by a nearby rally of Insane Clown Posse devotees. Is this the end of the unified front that descended on Charlottesville?
“Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia. He is taking hate groups mainstream, and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party. His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.”
