It’s been less than a week since our nation’s massive political earthquake, and we’re now suffering the aftershocks: emboldened white nationalists, a rise in hate crimes, and a heightened sense of suspicion of our fellow Americans.
The reality of a Trump Presidency is sinking in. Deemed the ‘cabinet from hell,’ the architects of the impending political Armageddon include Breitbart News Executive Stephan Bannon, whose publication foments racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-immigrant resentment; former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who defended the ‘stop and frisk’ law which Trump has promised to restore; David Clarke, the black Milwaukee sheriff who has publicly denounced ‘Black Lives Matter” and compared it to ISIS; Lucas Oil Founder Forrest Lucas, who has declared war against animal activists; Kris Kobach, the Kansas anti-immigration activist who wrote the infamous “show me your papers” law that was later overturned as unconstitutional, as well as Trump loyalists such as Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich.
