Northern Delaware/New Castle County is so intertwined with the Philadelphia Metro Area that calling it southern is almost laughable. The "Slower Lower" has more southern elements, but it's not that southern at all neither.

Yes and no. The "New South" label originally described cities that transformed their economies to a more industrial-based one after the Civil War. Miami didn't even exist during the Civil War and was incorporated just a few years before the dawn of the 20th century. While WWII was a turning point economically for the city as it was for several other Southern cities (including Atlanta and Charlotte), its economy never had any basis in the old Southern order like Charlotte and, to a lesser extent, Atlanta. It has several key industries in common with the likes of Atlanta and Charlotte, except they serve much of Latin America as opposed to wide swaths of the South.

The Charlottesville rally was called "unite the right." Who would think any of those people voted for Hilary? https://wtop.com/dc/2018/06/unite-th...y-rally-in-dc/

The person who organized the rally, Jason Kessler, had voted for Obama and was a member of Occupy Wall Street. Many conservatives believe he was faking like he was on the right to help push the left's favorite narrative about Republicans. White racism isn't a conservative principle and the GOP has never pushed white racist policy.

Also note that if GOP especially in the south are racist, it is surprising there haven't been a ton of rallies like the one in C'ville.

Even if all of these people voted for Trump, it doesn't mean a majority of GOP voters in the south are racist.

Kessler told Snopes that he supported and voted for Obama in 2008 but became disenchanted with the administration and Democrats. He said that he had attended an Occupy rally in Charlottesville in 2011 but found that his views didn’t align with those of the protesters.

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Kessler tweeted in November that many alt-right followers used to be liberals. He also said that he voted for Trump in the primary and general elections. “I like Trump more than I did Obama,” he wrote on Nov. 6. “My Trump enthusiasm is through the roof. I like people who push the edge.”

That's what he said. You say you live in Clemson but you live in Denver.

There have been a lot of race hoaxes the past 20 years... For example, a black Democrat in Miss. burned down his own church and put a Vote Trump sign out in front of it prior to the election.

Richard SPencer isn't a mainstream conservative Republican. He denounces Jews. The GOP is very pro Israel.

Ofc he's not a mainstream Republican but he supports Republicans, not Democrats. Why is that?

Why did the father of the guy who murdered 50 gay people in that club in Orlando support HIllary? https://www.cnn.com/2016/08/09/polit...ton/index.html

Why do violent antifa people who wear masks and carry around bats and engage in acts of violence support Democrats?

Why did the guy who shot Republicans at a baseball game in DC vote Democrat?

Anybody can use these types of guilt by association arguments.
