It's one year post-Charlottesville riots. The focus is upon race. Despite the signs of neo-nazism, klanism and alt right, the far right will be claiming that the Democratic party are the racists.
It's part of a pattern.
In the past three years, there seems to be an increase in tweets and Facebook posts that claim that the “real civil rights” political organization is the Republican Party and the real white Supremacists, are the Democratic Party.
This week, I happen to see this type of suggestion or overt proposition on social media, more than usual. It seemed to follow the spat between Donald Trump and Lebron James.
One Facebook friend posted a video that presented this narrative—that despite its claim for caring for the fate of the minorities, the Democratic Party have supported the worst in our society as it relates to race.
As part of the "hate speech" vs "first amendment rights free speech debate", a far-right website was removed from the Internet by the hosting company after receving a protest letter.
The website? The neo-Nazi, White Supremacist site, Stormfront.com.
According to the party responsible for urging the removal of The Stormfront, the "website was used along with dailystormer.org to organize and encourage participation in the violent and fatal “Unite the Right” rally held in Charlottesville, Virginia."
