On the left you have intersectionalism and anti-patriarchy feminism and microagressions and gender/race quotas everywhere and #OscarsSoWhite/#MeToo/#WhitePrivilege and all that stuff (a lot of which was started by white people too), then on the right it's a lot of anti-immigrant and white nationalist stuff and people just generally being dicks.
It's really just a power struggle. Some people are like "take down those racist Confederate statues" and then racists are like "no" so then they pull them down themselves, and then the neo-nazis are like "eff you, let's march in Charlottesville" and then some people on left say "no, eff you racists we're going to form Antifa" and then it all goes to hell lol.
The resurgence of White Nationalism is a reaction to rabid Identity Politics on the left. This tribalism often ends in violence and civil war. And yet the left persists in defining everyone according to skin color. In France the latter has been abolished with great results.
