|White extremists are pleased that Trump got Sebastian Gorka and Stephen Bannon on his team.|
There's an organization that helps individuals who escaped out the dangerous world of white extremism. The group is called Life After Hate. It's a non-profit organization founded in 2011 by Christian Picciolini, a former Neo-Nazi. The mission of this group is to help people leave hate groups and prevent potential terrorist violence.
Barack Obama on his last year in office granted $400,000 to keep the organization funded.
Well the new leader decided to discontinue the grant in June. Now in August, we're at the peak of a "HOT SUMMER."
The attack in Charlottesville has tore into the very heart of America. The inept leader failed to unite the country in the wake of this horrific terrorist attack.
Democrats and Republicans are very concerned about this. They believe that Trump really fucked up.
And with good reason. Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence ignored the problem.
Sebastian Gorka's wife influenced the federal government to cease funding for anti-extremism prevention.

Katharine Gorka pushed for cuts to stop radicalism.
Gorka is a Department of Homeland Security advisor. She is married to this white extremist.
This terrorist from Ohio was a part of this Christian Identity movement called Vanguard America.
He ran into a crowd of progressive groups killing Heather Heyer.
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is furious about the lack of compassion. The House Speaker denounced white extremism He said that Trump's remarks that "both sides" do this failed to unite in the wake of a tragedy.
Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) are the only members of color inside the Republican Party. They have denounced the White extremists. They felt that Trump's "both sides" remark isn't helpful.
"We are Americans from all walks of life, working towards the American dream. Nowhere in that dream is there room for racism," said Scott.
"I believe he should apologize for placing the blame on 'both sides,'" said Hurd. "Racism, bigotry, anti-Semitism of any form is unacceptable, and the leader of the free world should be unambiguous about that."
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said that White supremacy is totally the blame.
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said that "there is no moral equivalency between racists and those fighting hate."
Trump's Republican Party allies are concerned that his brand could damage their chances at holding the Congress.
Conservatives annoy me with two things. What bothers me about the whole ordeal is the fact they continue to push whataboutism and revisionist history to defend the indefensible.
What about the alt-left? This is a talking point Trump used during his presser to denounce his tepid responses to the attacks.
Democrats are the party of the Klan. This talking point burns me up. The Democratic Party nominated Barack Obama twice. Obama is the first Black president and Hillary Clinton was the first woman to be a nominee for a national party.
Obama is called a racist by actual racists. The conservatives would tout this notion that opposing racism is racist. That's why Black Lives Matter is prominent. Conservatives continue to discount Blacks and Latinos fed up with a system that protects white supremacy.
Mind you that Republicans are embracing this white extremism. They are the party that is 90% WHITE and 10% EVERYTHING else.
