What’s Fueling Far-Right Hate in America?

Looked at from Canada: AMERICA - the land mass & related islands - is generally fine. The UNITED STATES, the single country that has for decades had severe delusions of grandeur, is in a LOT of trouble. With the creation of the European Union & rise of China, U.S. economic hegemony over the world is soon to be gone, & won't be back. In fact, it's in dire economic straits. This has become far worse since the turn of the century.
Today, the U.S. National Debt is $27.216T. Per capita, that's $82,312. On this day in 2000, it was only $5.65T, & $19,959. That's a 481.7% increase in just 20 years., or 412.4% per capita. Meanwhile, Canada's N.D.p.c is only $18,300 after 153.33 years. The U.S. has blown $ like a drunken sailor at a bordello, mostly on failed military ventures, never thinking that the piper must one day be paid.
Meanwhile, you've allowed absurd economic disparity to fester in the country. You have a handful of men each with enough $ to run all Canada for more than 1/2 a year while millions of citizens live a near-3rd-world existence with no health care &, often, no housing. You have a severe problem with racism & bigotry. Many people have no hope.
In that situation, desperate people give up on a status quo they see as moribund. They look to extremes to the right or left. These extremists regard each other as part of the problem, not of the cure. You now live in the Divided States. Then you get a "president" who spends his entire time sowing division & discord. He is in fact like Mussolini, Hitler, Franco & Peron: the wrong person at the wrong time in the wrong place with the wrong "solutions" the the wrong problems, presented & put into effect in the wrong way while betraying & enraging the wrong parties (long-time allies) while kowtowing to other tyrants.
You will (thankfully) be rid of this disastrous Orange Fraud shortly, but a lot of serious work needs to be done inside your borders to repair the damage. Spend a few years looking after yourselves, & forget about sticking the national nose into everyone else's business for awhile. That's the best solution.

Leftists are fueling it. Antifa, BLM, the corrupt media, Hollywood, etc. These entities insult and attack republicans more often than not, telling us we have privilege, we're racist, and on and on and on. We're sick of these people accusing us of all sorts of nasty things we haven't done and of course that means we we have little choice but to oppose them.

It used to be that there was a select amount of printed space in news papers, and so media companies tended to make good use of it. Newspapers came out once a day, and TV news usually morning, 6 pm and 11 pm.
Now we have 24 hour news stations which have to fill in time so they post all kinds of so called news. Then there are online media companies which have virtually unlimited print space, so they too write as much as they can since the clicks on the story so that they get paid from advertisers is what they are after.
Then there are all the radical conspiracy sites. At one time, these people would not have had much ability to spread their garbage, but now they can. What happens though is that it does not as much influence people as much as people who are already influenced go looking for information which jives with their own views. When you choose what you get to read to support your views, and never read an opposing view, you think that you are always right.
