Are we slowing stepping back into the 50s and 60s. Why are these people so embloded now?

State of emergency declared amid violence at Charlottesville's 'Unite the Right' rally - CNN
Did they miss the Anti-Trump hate rallies put on by the left? The Southern Poverty Law Center used to be a single liberal man who presents as a serious institution to liberals. It has morphed a bit into a small group of misanthropic liberals who lash out at anything they dislike. Most of them are from the North. The pay at the top is good.

society is seeing 'again" the racist white the same as the 1960's are still around, doing the same stuff they did in the 1960's trying to promote some white dominance madness.
It's that Trump, Bannon and the Entire White Nationalist Administration out of our Top Executive and Administrative System. "Everyone of these white nationalist and every faction of them, should be locked away for Treason against the United State of America. . With no possibility for Parole.
That's a totally unhinged racist perspective.

You are just plain wrong. Please tell me what the Republicans and Trump have done to emulate the KKK, and/or Nazi's?

We sort of have it, the Southern Poverty Law Center, was a one man shop in guise of several bleeding heart liberal causes. Is mostly supported coastal liberals, as such it is more of a northern than a southern establishment.

The Southern Poverty Law Center demonstrates how rich white liberals can profit from a non-profit via the guild of other rich white liberals. Some at the Southern Poverty Law Center enjoy a life with affluence and no accountability. The Southern Poverty Law Center knows no poverty itself, it only knows lavish headquarters and exists as an immune echo chamber which lashes out against anything it doesn't like claiming it is racist.

Default Trump and Republicans - Officially the party of the ALT Right/KKK

By refusing to denounce the rise of these two hate groups, and employing both Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka (ties to Nazis) in the WH and unleashing Gorka as a regular spokesperson Trump has made it clear where he stands.

As a result these marginal hate groups are now emboldened and Trump owns it - bigly.

Liberals can riot, block roads and beat people down but others can't? i have no idea who started the violence but it seems it's usually the liberals as we have seen in the past.

The entire concept of white supremacy is an evil unto itself. Its very existence disgusts me.

This is a textbook case of ritual defamation.

I don't think any of you have any evidence that any one of the people at the rally has done anything criminal, yet we hear names like "thugs" etc. used to describe them. There is no examination of their actual beliefs, nor analysis of how and why they should be considered wrong.

Ritual defamation:

The Degeneration of Belief: Compiled By Laird Wilcox

The elements of a Ritual Defamation are these:
  1. In a ritual defamation the victim must have violated a particular taboo in some way, usually by expressing or identifying with a forbidden attitude, opinion or belief. It is not necessary that he "do" anything about it or undertake any particular course of action, only that he engage in some form of communication or expression.
  2. The method of attack in a ritual defamation is to assail the character of the victim, and never to offer more than a perfunctory challenge to the particular attitudes, opinions or beliefs expressed or implied. Character assassination is its primary tool.
  3. An important rule in ritual defamation is to avoid engaging in any kind of debate over the truthfulness or reasonableness of what has been expressed, only condemn it. To debate opens the issue up for examination and discussion of its merits, and to consider the evidence that may support it, which is just what the ritual defamer is trying to avoid. The primary goal of a ritual defamation is censorship and repression.
These people have violated a taboo, a supremely racist taboo, to the effect that white citizens are not allowed to organize politically to secure the interests of white citizens. I say, good for them. The racist double standards employed to manipulate and exploit white people need to go.
