and taking the discussion to a point where no reasonable discussion is possible.  So, now it's a "discussion" again, but you can't respond?  Is that right?  How about responding to the initial post?  Do you think we need to root out White Supremacy?  Ya see?  It ain't that hard.....if you want to contribute to the topic.  Whining about others posts isn't always necessary.

I have noticed many trump supporters "play ignorant" here on this forum; some every day.  I wonder if that is a reflection of:

 

Education, Not Income, Predicted Who Would Vote For Trump

 

Or was it:

 

RACISM, SEXISM, AND STATUS FEARS DROVE TRUMP VOTERS

What a delightfully truthful and factual cartoon - it should be on all WH Stationery...


Do you mean it isn't already?


No, he's saving that one for 2020. It'll give his re-election bid a boost. This one might be in use now, though.

We need to root out white supremacy

Hate spreads in Trump’s America: “We need to root out white supremacy just like the cancer it is”

 

Beginning with Donald Trump's presidential campaign, his defeat of Hillary Clinton, and now almost two years as president, there has been an almost unprecedented increase in hate crimes and other politically motivated violence against nonwhites, Muslims, Jews, gays and lesbians, and other people identified as some type of enemy by Trump and his supporters. The Southern Poverty Law Center has also documented how Donald Trump's most enthusiastic supporters among the white supremacist so-called "alt-right" have killed and injured dozens of people in both individual attacks as well as mass murder starting in 2014 through to January 2018.

 

Other human rights watchdog groups have also kept an accounting of the many dozens of incidents where Donald Trump's supporters have literally shouted his slogans while attacking individuals who are supposedly members of groups (such as nonwhite immigrants) he has vilified and thus dehumanized. Other researchers have highlighted how Donald Trump's anti-Muslim comments on the social media platform Twitter and also his hate rallies have been correlated with an increase in hate crimes and other violence.

 

This data is an aggregate expression of individual suffering. These victims have names. These victims of Trumpism are also members of a larger community who have now been collectively traumatized.

 

What are their stories? How does the systemic violence encouraged, protected, and spread by Donald Trump and his Republican Party hurt whole groups of people? In what ways is the short-term and long-term health negatively impacted for those Americans and others who have been targeted for harassment by Donald Trump and his movement? How are those individuals and communities who have been victimized by Donald Trump and his supporters fighting back? What does justice look and feel like for those people who have been assaulted — literally and figuratively — by Donald Trump and his self-appointed foot soldiers?

 

In an effort to answer these questions I recently spoke with Arjun Singh Sethi. He is law professor at Georgetown University Law Center and Vanderbilt University Law School, a civil rights lawyer, activist, and writer whose work has appeared at the Washington Post, USA Today, The Guardian and CNN. He is also the co-chair of  the American Bar Association’s National Committee on Homeland Security, Terrorism, and Treatment of Enemy Combatants.  He is the editor of the new book "American Hate: Survivors Speak Out".

 

This conversation has been edited for clarity and length.
