Trump and Farage have let the Nazi Genie out of the bottle.

Nigel Farage was among those giving his opinion on a far-right rally in the US city of Charlottesville - but his tweet did not exactly go down well.

The rally descended into violence after neo-Nazis, white supremacists and members of the Ku Klux Klan clashed with anti-fascist protestors.

Cannot believe we're seeing Nazi salutes in 21st century America.

I cannot believe that you can try to disassociate yourself from something you had such a strong hand in. Your rhetoric has contributed.

Others also saw through Farage's hypoctisy 

Replying to

Are you f*cking kidding me? This must be a joke, surely.

Left: Nigel Farage Right: Nigel Farage It doesn't start with Nazi salutes.

It follows criticism of the  the US President he President was criticised in the wake of deadly violence at a far-right rally for blaming "many sides" for the unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia, and not explicitly condemning the white extremist groups.

The president said he condemned “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides” on Saturday. He then repeated the phrase “on many sides” for emphasis

The rally was held to condemn a decision by the city to remove a statue of General Robert E Lee, a Confederate commander during the Civil War.
It was met by counter-protesters and events quickly turned ugly, with mass brawls breaking out between them and anti-fascists.
The violence left one person dead and dozens more injured.

Democrats and Republicans said the President should denounce hate groups by name.
The city's mayor, Democrat Mike Signer, said he blamed Mr Trump for inflaming racial prejudices during his successful campaign for the White House, while Colorado Republican senator Cory Gardner said the President "must call evil by its name".
The critical voices included former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, who told ABC News Mr Trump should have been "much harsher" in his response to the violence.
In response to the criticism, the White House said in a statement: "The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry, and hatred, and of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi, and all extremist groups."He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together.

The truth is that both Farage and Trump received support from the Neo Nazi in  Charlottesville.

Just as in the US where Trump rhetoric has led to these White-Separatists  to beleive  that their Man is in the White house. The sought of campaign over immigration  that resulted in Farage standing in front of the above voters has led to a beleif in the UK that racisist are now free not only to express their opinions  and to attack people.

Both heleped letting the Genie out of the bottle Farage's disbelif in the use of Nazi salutes from some the sort of people who cheered him when he endorsed Trump during the Presidential campaign  his either hypocritical or naive and  who could ever call Nigel naive?
