Vice News’ Elle Reeve, the reporter behind last year’s Charlottesville documentary, revealed that the white nationalist movement is struggling since the violent rally last year.
Reeve told CNN’s John Berman that the Unite the Right rally has been “devastating” to the white nationalist movement.
“Over time, the problems have been compounding,” she explained. “Of course, they’re kicked off social media, but they’ve also been kicked off payment processors, which means they can’t raise money online. It’s an internet movement and they need internet donations, so it’s impossible for them to get that.”
“There’s been all this in-fighting between groups,” she added. “Some of them have been ousted. One leader… was exposed as a fake war veteran. They’re really just back on their heels.”
