Decent people are still mourning the death of Heather Heyer who was murdered by a Nazi supporter in Charlottesville during an "alt-right" rally.
Among those decent people, the POTUS is not among them. The current occupant of the White House, after his previous moral failure in suggesting an equivalency between the fascists who called for the extermination of Jews and the superiority of the "white race" and the citizens who oppose those views before a ham fisted (and tepid) condemnation of the Nazis and Klan 48 hours after the death of Ms. Heyer, decided to triple down on his first statement and even suggested that these people were simply peaceful protesters who were "attacked" by the anti-fascists:
If there is anything positive that resulted from this tragedy, it is that it has resulted in people who might otherwise have ignored hate groups as "fringe" recognizing the real danger they present to individuals and institutions. It has resulted in the msm paying much more attention and exposing these haters. It has resulted in some of the right-wing media, such as "The Rebel" in Canada, trying |(and failing; three correspondents have left as of today) to backpedal their support. And it has resulted in a fracturing of the movement between the hardcore "alt-right" who still support and celebrate what happened and the "alt-lite" who have decided that being edgy, meme-loving, nationalists might not be in their long term interests. I will be talking at length about the infighting in Canada (which to be fair preceded the events in Charlottesville) at a later date.
Among those in Canada who have decided to end any pretense of being non-racist and to fully embrace the spirit of the "Unite the Right" Nazis, Klan members, and militias who marched in Charlottesville is the World Wide Coalition Against Islam (WCAI). Again this trend began before the Charlottesville tragedy as the following twitter posts prove....
