the problem is there are these groups and this mindset floating in the ether of to many white men's (and women's) minds.

When Trump leaves office those people will still be there, whether Trump's condemn or condones them or not.
they were there when Obama was in office, it fair to say that Obama was used by them as an example of the "white race's" decline.
And a spur for the sad paranoid fear that they are being wiped out by the "mongrel" races.
Taking their women, and "rightful place" and such.

These ideas are not new, and sadly, even as far as the US and the west have come away from the worse of them,
these stupid ideas find a place in too many people's minds. And politicians have and will play off of it overtly and covertly.

anyone old enough to remember the Bush Senior's "Willie Horton" "neutral" political ad.
Or Hillary talking about young black "super predators" to pass 3 strikes laws.
Frightening white folks into a corner with fears of 'Injuns', Blacks, Latinos, and Muslims is a tried and true way to rally some Americans into a crowd and getting votes. Herd emotion driven mentality workin, even if it's not rational.
or Godly.
