Are we sure this is not an SNL skit?

An Alabama organization designated as a white supremacist hate group by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is launching a Russian-language page calling on Russia and the American South to become allies.
A letter posted to the League of the South’s website first reported by AL.com spoke of natural similarities between Russian culture and the conservative southerners.
“As fellow Whites of northern European extraction, we come from the same general gene pool. As inheritors of the European cultural tradition, we share similar values, customs, and ways of life. And as Christians, we worship the same Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and our common faith binds us as brothers and sisters,” the group’s leader Michael Hill wrote.
Hill’s letter continued that the site’s Russian-language page would be the “first step” toward building “[a] firm and resolute understanding and commitment to cooperation between the Russian people and the people of the South [that] could indeed be the foundation for a better world in which our peoples thrive and prosper far into the future.”
The group’s move to establish the page comes days after President Trump’s bilateral summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which the two leaders spoke about decreasing tensions between their two nations.
Okay so first we probably should not read too much into this.
But then second how in the fuck are we supposed to not read too much into this?
I mean what in the hell do southern white supremacists have in common with the Russkies other than undying support for the asshole in the White House?
Of course, now that I think about it we should have seen this coming after all the southern racist Trump supporters are already Facebook friends with most of the Russian FSB agents.
By the way, does anybody remember exactly how long Alice was tumbling down that rabbit hole?
