"Very fine people" Go to Washington

Quote
On Sunday, demonstrators are set to hold a "white civil rights rally" on the anniversary of last year's "Unite the Right" protest.
This time, supporters plan to gather in a much more high-profile setting: Lafayette Square park, directly across the street from the White House.

I imagine Kelly and crew will be duct taping Donald to a chair to stop him from walking across the street to shake hands with his people.

That explains the timing of the Ingraham rant about the US not being white like in the good old days

TRUMP: ...My people came to me, Dan Coats came to me and some others and said they think itís Russia. 
I have President Putin. He just said itís not Russia. I will say this. I donít see any reason why it would be, ...So I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that president Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.

more seriously, though, Adam Serwer, in the Atlantic, is noting (correctly) that the relative decline of the actual alt-right (Spencer & Co.) is mirrored by their rhetoric being unashamedly appropriate by maintstream right-wing commentators.

Yeah, I read that this morning.  Depressing isn't it?  I wonder if the heroes of Cable Street were attacked like Antifa is today.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

Raz is right. -MadImmortalMan March of 2017

Given that significant numbers of the Cable Street anti fascists were members of anarchist, socialist, communist, and other radical labour groups - as well as a significant number of Jews - I'd say that yes, lots of shit was said about them

Some things never change, like British establishment hypocrisy, as illustrated by this satire. And has a cable street connection:
