My thing is, they never "went away". They've always had marches and rallies that largely went unnoticed. And most times, it'd be a couple dozen marching thru a town and then they'd go away until the next one. Now, they're being given a platform by the media and being given this legitimacy as if there are tens of thousands of them and they're a legit threat. They're clowns. There was like 30 of them in Charlottesville this past Friday night. Why even bother covering them and giving them an outlet?
