While the neo-fascist alt-right is not entirely happy with President Donald Trump's first few months in office, one thing for which they are grateful is that the new administration is giving them free rein to engage in building their movement, unencumbered by any law enforcement scrutiny of their activities.

"He's going to give us space to destroy," Michael Peinovich, the creator of The Right Stuff, an alt-right podcast network said during a Sunday guest appearance on "Fash the Nation," the movement's most popular web radio show.

Peinovich, who also goes by the pen name "Mike Enoch," was referencing a 2015 remark by Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, then the mayor of Baltimore, which some people interpreted as giving support to rioters who committed numerous acts of violence in the city following the acquittal of several police officers who had been on trial for the death of a black resident.
