“Hail Trump!” – Why Nazis Love The Donald

White nationalists have been caught on camera celebrating Donald Trump’s victory with Nazi salutes.

On November 19, 2016, the National Policy Institute held its annual conference in Washington D.C. Here is Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute:

“To be white is to be a striver, a crusader, an explorer, and a conqueror. We build, we produce, we go upward. And we recognize the central lie of American race relations. We don’t exploit other groups. We—we don’t gain anything from their presence. They need us, and not the other way around. America was, until this past generation, a white country, designed for ourselves and our posterity. It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us.”

Spencer then goes on to say:

“I do think we have a psychic connection, or you can say a deeper connection, with Donald Trump in a way that we simply do not have with most Republicans,”…”He [Trump] certainly wasn’t elected on repeal Obamacare or anything like that. This is why he was elected. Because he was the identity President.”

This words are greeted with Nazi salutes and chants of “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!”

While the president-elect has distanced himself from endorsements from far-right groups, supporters of such views have been emboldened by his win.

Before you dismiss Richard Spencer and the relationship between the White Supremacist Movement and Donald Trump, take a look at what Spencer said on September 22, 2016:

“Donald Trump came along and I feel like my movement and my ideology, we can be a kind of vanguard for a Presidential candidate. That his arrow is pointing in our direction.”

Any questions?
