Along with the religious fanatics they have always been Donald Trump's most loyal supporters.
The ones who call themselves alt-rightists or white nationalists, but I call white supremacists and Neo-Nazis.
Since their Gropenfuhrer was elected President they have become even more brazen, and don't even bother to wear masks or white hoods anymore.
So this weekend they held a "Unite the Right" tiki torch party, and of course it ended badly.
They went redneck wild, caused a white riot, and killed somebody.
The city of Charlottesville was engulfed by violence on Saturday as white nationalists and counterprotesters clashed in one of the bloodiest fights to date over the removal of Confederate monuments across the South.
The planned rally was promoted as “Unite the Right” and both its organizers and critics said they expected it to be one of the largest gatherings of white nationalists in recent times, attracting groups like the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis and movement leaders like David Duke and Richard Spencer.
And although the former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke made it clear that they are Trump's Nazis.

The bloated bigot Trump wouldn't even call them white nationalists, or condemn their sick ideology.
For obvious reasons.
President Trump is rarely reluctant to express his opinion, but he is often seized by caution when addressing the violence and vitriol of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and alt-right activists, some of whom are his supporters.
During a brief and uncomfortable address to reporters at his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., he called for an end to the violence. But he was the only national political figure to spread blame for the “hatred, bigotry and violence” that resulted in the death of one person to “many sides.”
Mr. Trump did not single out the marchers, who included the white supremacist Richard Spencer and Mr. Duke, for their ideology.
Nor for that matter would he call them terrorists.
Even though this is a terrorist act...
Even though this is a radical right-wing terrorist suspect...
Right out of Central Casting.
Even though these are Nazis...
And even though the "alt-right" leader Richard Spencer was seen celebrating the fear his Tiki Nazis had created, claiming it would make their struggle to make America white again easier.
Before he was arrested...
And was led away screaming it was all the police's fault. WAAAAAAAAAAH!!
And the good news? This is going to do Trump double damage.
The Nazis aren't happy their Gropenfuhrer didn't give them a shout out. While some Republicans are unhappy Trump didn't call terrorism terrorism.
“Mr. President — we must call evil by its name,” tweeted Senator Cory Gardner, Republican from Colorado, who oversees the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the campaign arm of the Senate Republicans.
“These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism,” he added, a description several of his colleagues used.
And Trump is so unpopular he can't afford to lose any support from either group.
As for me, I will never accept the sight of Nazis marching though the streets of our cities...
When they killed so many people, and so many young soldiers sacrificed their lives to defeat them.
But what happened in Charlottesville yesterday did at least finally settle this question in my mind:
Can you punch a Nazi?
And as that sign says, the answer is of course you can.
We can and we must.
We defeated them once.
We will defeat them again.
And the Gropenfuhrer Trump will end up in the place where he belongs...
