OMG. This has to be one of the best examples of real-life trolling ever as a white supremacist bully is mercilessly mocked for being too weak to rip up an anti-fascism sign so he can toss it in the garbage can.
Film producer and CEO/founder of The Left – a new website “helping liberals survive the Trump era,” Adam Best posted an incredible video clip of an alt-right member attempting to rip apart an anti-fascism sign as liberals taunt him.
“This viral video of an alt-right bully failing miserably to rip up an anti-fascism sign as liberals masterfully drag him is the perfect real-life metaphor for political Twitter. Can’t stop watching it,” he tweeted along with the clip.
Liberals can be heard teasing him, asking if he goes to the gym. They also suggest he remove the lid of the garbage can and just toss the sign away.
Frustrated, at the end of the clip he can be seen folding the sign in half an walking away with it to the laughter of the liberals.
The video has been viewed nearly 2.5 million times at the time of the publication of this article with over 24K likes and nearly 10K comments.

And speaking of the alt-right, recent reports suggest the movement is collapsing in on itself.
The Washington Post reported mid-April 2018 that “Eight months after a white-nationalist rally in Charlottesville ended in the death of a counterprotester, the loose collection of disaffected young white men known as the alt-right is in disarray.”
The zenith of the alt-right — Charlottesville’s Unite the Right rally in August — also appears to have been the moment of its decline, according to hate-group experts and members of the alt-right, most of whom were predicting a surge in membership at the time.
Continuing, The Washington Post offered the following analysis of some of the leading figures of the alt-right movement:
Andrew Anglin, founder of the Daily Stormer, the largest alt-right website, has gone into hiding, chased by a harassment lawsuit. And Richard Spencer, the alt-right’s most public figure, canceled a college speaking tour and was abandoned by his attorney last month.
“Things have become a lot harder, and we paid a price for what happened in Charlottesville. . . . The question is whether there is going to be a third act,” said Spencer, who coined the name of the movement, which rose to prominence during the 2016 presidential campaign, advocates a whites-only ethno-state and has posted racist, anti-Semitic and misogynistic memes across the Internet.
Indeed, as Right Wing Watch reported the last week of April, Richard Spencer has fallen on hard times:
Richard Spencer, who was once a leading figurehead of the racist alt-right movement, is begging his followers for $25,000 to help him fight off a federal lawsuit in which 11 plaintiffs are seeking damages for emotional and physical trauma received during last year’s violent Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Indeed, Spencer published a video on YouTube begging his supporters for money to hire an attorney.
Calling the lawsuit “warfare by legal means,” Spencer explained. “This is a mockery of justice,” he added, arguing that the case was “a conspiracy theory in the truest sense of the term,” intended to intimidate white nationalists and “take down the alt-right’s most prominent spokesman,” “that is me” he proclaimed.
“It is now time for me to lawyer up,” he continued, adding: “I am under attack. Losing this case would be catastrophic for our movement, for everyone engaged in dissident politics, to be honest.”
