Vice News/HBO's Charlottesville documentary's eye opening look at White Nationalist Rise!

The incredibly timely video below is a must see that reveals the twisted thinking of the white nationalist movement. All but ignored by the Trump administration, the alt right leaders now have an opportunity to become a legitimate destabilizing political player in our country.

Add to that the news that Trump official Sebastian Gorka's wife helped set the white nationalists free from Homeland Security oversight program CVE, we've got a real problem on our hands:
Controversial Trump Aide Katharine Gorka Helped End Funding For Group (Life After Hate) That Fights White Supremacy. The day after Trump won the election, Sebastian Gorka said, “I predict with absolute certitude, the jettisoning of concepts such as CVE (Countering Violent Extremism).”

The DHS had awarded the Life After Hate $400,000 as part of its Countering Violent Extremism program in January, just days before former President Barack Obama left office. It was the only group selected for a grant that focused exclusively on fighting white supremacy. But the grant money was not immediately disbursed. DHS and the FBI warned in an internal intelligence bulletin of the threat posed by white supremacy. White supremacists “were responsible for 49 homicides in 26 attacks from 2000 to 2016 … more than any other domestic extremist movement,”
Vice News, to the outlet's immense credit, was on the ground to document the events in Charlottesville this weekend. They even embedded, for a time, with white supremacist leader Chris Cantwell. What they found speaks for itself, but keep an eye out for the little things. Like, say, how many guns these white supremacists have.

Here's John Oliver's commentary on Trump's "on many sides" debacle:
