CNN has a clip of an interview with a neo-Nazi in a small town in Pennsylvania, the kind of person who’s always been around under the radar but feels newly empowered under Trump. Honestly, the guy is scary — especially in his abrupt shift from a normal conversational tone to crudely vulgar fury. It’s hard for me to believe that white people, white males particularly, actually feel threatened. But here is a guy saying he does, telling the black interviewer that “This is my country” and “You didn’t win the culture war”, and then exploding and demanding that the CNN camera crew get off his property.
The clip includes other people in his town, white people also, who take a very different position and explicitly reject what their fellow American has said.
But they look frightened, a little. And so should we all.
There’s a brief ad at the beginning of the clip — stick around until the meat of the interview comes on.
