Trump Refuses to Condemn Nazi Salutes in His Honor

At the core of Trumpism is group of white pencil-necked young losers who see in Trump the restoration of an unchallenged white privilege that was born from black slavery, nurtured by a white racist legal system, and fine-tuned in a uniquely-American brand of rapacious capitalist plutocracy.

These new ranks of white nationalist nazis met in DC this past weekend in what was planned as loser angerfest, but with Trump's unexpected Electoral College win (he lost the citizen vote by almost 2 million votes), a victory party erupted into Nazi salutes and quotes from Adolf Hitler.

And this kind of breath-taking hate-based support is exactly what Trump refuses to condemn.  This, then, is the beginning of push to kill American democratic institutions and to insert a white nationalist totalitaritarian regime in its place.

It will fail if we act to make it fail; it will succeed if we do nothing to stop it.  Trump is doing nothing.
