    Trump's Base Is Thrilled

    Trump's base is thrilled
    by digby



    They love him, they really love him:
    Christopher Cantwell, a white supremacist organizer who is being charged with assaulting counter-protesters in Charlottesville, praised Trump’s comments on Gab, a social network that caters to online racists.



    Trump was also praised on Gab by Jared Wyand, a white nationalist who was banned from Twitter for anti-Semitic posts, endorsed Trump’s comments and added that “blacks are incapable of building thriving civil societies.”




    Trump’s comments were also popular on Stormfront, a message board for white supremacists. One user said Trump was absolutely right to trash “non-white” countries.




    The White House loves them right back:

    Trump's an idiot. Get over it.

    It is enlightening to see how much the white nationalist reactions mirrors and echoes the Trump man on the street/base reaction.

    Not a surprise really, but enlightening.

    White nationalists are closer to the left than to Trump. They engage in the same identity politics, want the same things.

    Most people like to keep their stupidity non-public. Black Nationalists loved Obama. Guess that makes him an idiot too.

    They hold black nationalist rallies in a phone booth.

    You must be one of those people who excuses everything our ahole president* does.

    BLM praised Obama you'll remember.

    Radicals of every stripe have been a fact in American politics before we were America.
