A pair of white nationalists cackled with glee at the growing popularity of their fringe movement–thanks to social media and Donald Trump.

James Edwards, host of the “Political Cesspool” radio program, gloated that the so-called “alt right” movement had ushered a diverse collection of younger social media users into the white nationalist movement, reported Right Wing Watch.

“There’s so many different audiences within the ‘pro-white’ spectrum that they don’t overlap anymore,” Edwards said. “We have an audience that is different from some of the others, and it’s encouraging and uplifting when we come into contact with one another. Used to–10, 15, 20 years ago–all five of us knew each other. That’s not the case anymore.”

His guest, the prominent white nationalist Jared Taylor, said he agreed “100 percent”–saying the movement had grown far past his influence and now included a number of bloggers who put out high-quality productions to help spread the “pro-white” message.

“We are putting out a message that is vital to our people more effectively and in more different places, coming from more reliable, believable people than ever before,” Taylor said. “I find it hugely encouraging.”

“The most visible manifestation of this is the support for Donald Trump,” Taylor said. “Donald Trump is an opportunity for ordinary Americans to say they are fed up. And one of the big things they’re fed up about is the racial changes going on in the United States, and they think Donald Trump might actually do something about it.”
