Really not sure how that would change anything.

Ever since the violent “Unite the Right” rally that rocked Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017, the far-right has been on the defensive.
White supremacists like Richard Spencer have been kicked off web pages and fundraising sites, while others, such as the “Crying Nazi” Chris Cantwell, have infuriated their followers by cooperating with law enforcement. Anti-fascists continue to regularly doxx members of groups like the Proud Boys, which makes any sort of overt far-right organizing an increasingly fraught endeavor.
One group, however, responded to the increased scrutiny by hiding its overt far-right sympathies and attempting to rebrand itself as a GOP-friendly organization — actively encouraging its members to join local chapters of the Republican Party.
“Identity Evropa leadership *strongly* encourages our members to get involved in local politics,” the group’s leader, Patrick Casey, wrote in November 2017 message, obtained by the autonomous media collective Unicorn Riot. “The GOP is essentially the White man’s party at this point… so it makes far more sense for us to subvert it than to create our own party.”
Identity Evropa purports to be a group of “European-Americans seeking to restore America” by protesting against globalization and mass immigration. The group was formed in 2016 by Nathan Damigo, a former Marine, who experienced a “racial awakening” after reading David Duke’s autobiography in prison.
“The Gop is essentially the White Man’s party at this point.”
Truer words were never spoken.
Identity Evropa was also one of the organizers of the Charlottesville rally that resulted in multiple injuries and one fatality, and are heavily involved with the uptick in white supremacist propaganda that we discussed yesterday.
Of course, none of this is particularly surprising, as currently the only difference between the GOP and the KKK is that the GOP has not yet cut eyeholes in their bedsheets.
