There was a time, not so long ago, when a white nationalist, a racist, or an overt Nazi running for political office in these United States would have been considered a fringe candidate at best, a nutcase at worst, and generally ignored in either case. Now though, emboldened by Trump’s win, they are coming out of the woodwork and running openly for public office, and sometimes with considerable support. NBC News recently did a stunning, and chilling report to the effect that at least eight white nationalists are running for office in 2018. You can see the whole report below.
