(AP Photo/Alex Brandon president Trump held a rally on Tuesday night in Phoenix, whipping the crowd into a frenzy and denouncing the media between chants of lock her. Trump even said the word news Antifa for the first time in public, a reference to the anti-fascist groups that have formed to fight against neo-Nazis and Nazi sympathizers. And there was one group that got his message loud and clear: White supremacists.
Many prominent white supremacists in the US saw the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia as a major turning point, at least from a media relations point of view. A 32-year-old woman, Heather Heyer, died after a neo-Nazi terrorist drove his car into a crowd of counter protestors.
And white supremacists took a more measured tone in the aftermath, making sure to denounce violence, knowing that aligning yourself with death isnt great for the cause of creating a white ethno-state.
But President Trumps speech last night seems to have changed all that. White supremacists like Richard Spencer appeared energized by the speech and live-tweeted their excitement as the president signaled his support in the fight against Antifa. Even before Trump said the word Antifa, white supremacists heard Trumps equivocating loud and clear.
At 10:19pm Eastern time, Trump started talking about the rally in Charlottesville and said that it strikes at the core of America and that this entire arena stands united in forceful condemnation factor of the thugs that perpetrate hatred and violence. Trump then went on to talk about the very dishonest media, pointing at the press pen.
Whatever Trump actually meant by his condemnation of thugs, white supremacists on Twitter heard an ally denouncing anti-fascists. Richard Spencer tweeted less than two minutes later that Trump had, just forcefully denounced Antifa.

Trump then went into a bizarre tangent where he re-litigated his earliest equivocating denunciation of neo-Nazis and continued to denounce the media and the anarchists that disrupt his rallies. Internet personality and white supremacist Baked Alaska, whose real name is Tim Gionet, celebrated the chants.

Hes a Holocaust denier who has made videos saying that the, mainstream media has been lying for over a hundred years. Gionet and his friend Millennial Matt, real name Matthew Colligan, have said that Hitler wanted to get rid of the fake news in Nazi Germany and because they didnt have the internet, they didnt have 4Chan, people got fake news about World War. In the video Colligan laments the fact that absent the internet, our friends in Europe back in 19idnt have that opportunity to hear how great Hitler was.
Other anti-semitic Trump supporters believed that by calling out the media, Trump was calling out Jews, using the word Lugenpresse, German for lying press.
