The gradual dissolution of the petty bourgeoisie and overt proletarianization of larger percentages of the American populace is directly related to the resurgence of the socialist movement and the rise of street-level fascism is the tip of the spear of the capitalist class's attempts to crush it. As the working class is driven further into immiseration and the socialist movement naturally grows, the repression is going to get steadily worse even as our ability to fight gets better.
The "alt-right" being driven back is a success but nothing like a total one; they're pushing harder in their traditional stomping grounds so even as Unite the Right 2 was ten dumbasses hiding behind a million cops, the fash here in the PNW are getting more aggressive. They're not gone, and in places they've been driven out other forms of overt fascism are getting harder (viz. police repression).
