I hate Illinois Nazis!

... Virginia ones too.

What is it with these arseholes and their obsession with waving losers' flags, anyway?

Nice reference.

I can't explain the KKK or the obsession some have with the Confederacy, but I can tell you since NAFTA and WTO ordinary people have been economically decimated. These are the same people who marched with KKK and who in 1999 would have had steady work all week and would not have had time/energy to come to VA for what is really an anti-American event. I also want to point out, when the leftist brown shirts have held some kind of rally here there is rarely a counter rally, and if so dramatically smaller.

In a post WTO world, productive US citizens have been in steady decline and been replaced by or converted to the welfare class. The welfare class is being used as a political weapon, which is why this nation has been so polarized since 2000. Dot com crash, Bush v Gore, illegal wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and Ukraine have all had a negative contribution, but it was the slow burn of economic depression which has culminated in the current situation. The President was supposed to correct this, and perhaps he will in time. I personally am not hopeful, too many in power wanted this to happen in this way.

Re: I hate Illinois Nazis!

The world has been in a mad state at the moment, especially with escalating conflict on Korean Peninsula. Doesn't US have enough to deal with at the moment and this additional needless shit comes up. Sick and tired of alt-rights.

Re: I hate Illinois Nazis!

What is frightening for me is that it took the worst depression the world had ever seen and the de-facto civil war that Brüning´s Wiemar Republic was embroiled in to get the rightwing nationalists into power in 1932 and then it was still not a majority. Compare that with how easy people are embracing the same right wing social darwinist ideas today, now if the buggers ever got their act together and joined forces, maybe under a Führer...!

True enough. However, there are so many odd reactions around here that I couldn't eliminate "driving cars into crowds of anti-fascists" as an alternative.

Re: I hate Illinois Nazis!

"Fields’ mother, Samantha Bloom, told the Toledo Blade on Saturday that her son had told her he was going to Virginia for an “alt-right” rally but didn’t describe it to her in detail. Bloom said she’d warned her son to be careful and to protest “peacefully,” according to the newspaper. Bloom told The Associated Press that she wasn’t aware that the event was a white supremacist rally. “I thought it had to do with Trump,” she said. “Trump’s not a white supremacist.”
