It seems like the far right is constantly humiliating itself these days. Marquee names in the movement like Milo Yiannopoulos and Richard Spencer can't seem to step foot inside bars—or get a credit card denied if they do. Last weekend's "white civil rights" rally in Washington D.C.—billed as the sequel to last year's deadly Charlottesville eventmanaged to only turn up about 15 people. But perhaps no better evidence of the movement's sorry state exists than this clip, in which Unite the Right organizer Jason Kessler gets yelled at by his dad during a live interview, and told to film his videos about disliking Jewish people elsewhere.

"Hey! You get outta my room," an unseen man yells at Kessler during a discussion with white nationalist and former California Senate candidate Patrick Little in June.

"I'm sorry," Kessler says to Little. "I'm having an issue here."

"You got a drunk roommate there?" Little asks.

"Something like that," Kessler replies before admitting it's his father, who he's "at a crossroads with" over anti-semitism because his family has been brainwashed by the History Channel and it's "anti-German propaganda."

"They're cucked," he says.

Kessler then goes on to explain that he lives was his parents because people are suing the everliving shit out of him for organizing an event in which a man drove a car through protestors, killing a woman and injuring 19 people. In a Washington Post interview last week, his father said that the 34-year-old "white civil rights" advocate has been living on-and-off with his grandmother, so maybe his parents kicked him out after the stream.

"I support him as a son, but not politically," Eric Kessler told the Post. "The family is dismayed across the board about this situation. We’ve never identified with racial politics."
