White Nationalists, ‘Alt-Right’ Crushed By Flynn Resignation
"Disappointment over Flynn’s resignation, 24 days after assuming the role, was felt widely in internet discussion boards like Stormfront and The Daily Stormer, popular forums for white nationalists and card-carrying racists. Members blamed everyone from the media, Mike Pence, the intelligence community and Jews.
Andrew Anglin, creator of the neo-Nazi news blog The Daily Stormer offered his own commentary, labeling Flynn as “one of our best guys,” and describing the resignation as “definitely a loss. To the Jews.” The website’s readers agreed, several called Flynn “the kind of person we need on our team,” “stand up,” and that he was “too pro-white” for the administration.
A prominent “alt-right” news blog edited by white supremacist Richard Spencer also aired its dismay over the news, considering the resignation “a huge mistake.”
Michael Flynn was no stranger to controversy prior to his conversation with the Russian ambassador. He used his social media account to spread numerous fake news stories and conspiracy theories relating to Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.
Reports of Flynn’s link to the alt-right movement surfaced shortly after he was tapped to serve as Trump’s national security adviser. CNN reported in November that Flynn regularly tagged alt-right figure and conspiracy theorist Mike Cernovich in his tweets and even endorsed one of his books."
Are we going to pretend that press conference never happened?
