The difference is this: We know from Richard Spencer what the Nazis are up to these days and it's freaking scary. They are trying to re-brand themselves as the Alt-Right in order to put a new, more respectable face on the white nationalist movement. They are trying to become the new GOP youth movement (Trump Youth?), a place for disaffected white youth (who can't get girlfriends) to become politically involved. Spencer and his ilk have been pushing the white polos and khakis, look. At future demonstrations, he's talked about getting rid of the "freaks," those with swastika tattoos, Jackboots, Nazi flags and the straight arm salute in order to look more respectable. The "freaks" will still be a key part of the Nazi shock troops, but their public face will be like Richard Spencer, educated, well spoken, respectable on the surface. This is dangerous as hell.
We know the Xtian Reich decided in the 90s that the way to inflict their will on the rest of us was through co-opting or being co-opted by the GOP. What does that mean? At a GOP presidential debate last year, not a single candidate was willing to admit they believed in human evolution. Red state GOP have been working overtime to limit the rights of women and the LGBTQ community. The Xtian Reich are getting their wish from red state GOP and Drumpf. This is the future of the Nazis, and it won't take as long as it took the Xtian Reich because, with social media, everything seems to evolve in months when it used to take years.
