    Racist 'alt-right' movement reeling after string of setbacks

    Racist ‘alt-right’ movement reeling after string of setbacks

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Led from a courtroom in handcuffs Tuesday, one of the nation’s most recognizable white nationalists will have 38 days behind bars to ponder the dizzying demise of the group he led before his arrest exposed a bizarre sex scandal.

    Matthew Heimbach’s jail sentence for a probation violation is just the latest setback for the “alt-right” fringe movement that appears to be reeling after becoming emboldened and energized by Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and election.

    Richard Spencer, who coined the term “alt-right” to describe a loosely connected band of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other far-right extremists, suspended a college tour after violent clashes overshadowed one of his campus speeches in March. He and other leading alt-right figures are fighting lawsuits without help from lawyers. Many also are struggling to raise money or spread their messages after losing access to mainstream internet platforms. A few have even dropped out of the movement altogether.

    And then there’s Heimbach, whose Traditionalist Worker Party was rocked by his arrest in March on charges he assaulted his wife’s stepfather, David Matthew Parrott, who also was the group’s spokesman. The men had argued over Heimbach’s alleged affair with Parrott’s wife, according to court documents. The alleged assault was a violation of Heimbach’s probation for a case in which he was accused of physically harassing a protester at a 2016 Trump campaign rally in Kentucky.

    1. The DCCC will help them run against progressives in the future.

    No matter how low the bar is set the DCCC can always slide and slither under it.

    Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity. End ALL occupations and bring the troops home.

      3. Sir, you are cruel but fair. Best idea I've heard all week! 😁

      A hologram of a magnifying glass will also function as a magnifying glass, but a hologram of Sherlock Holmes won't solve anything.
