Racist Incidents Are Up Since Donald Trump’s Election. These Are Just a Few of Them

In the days since the presidential election, states across the country have seen increased incidents of racist or  anti-Semitic vandalism and violence, many of which have drawn directly on the rhetoric and proposals of President-elect Donald Trump. The Southern Poverty Law Center has counted more than 200 complaints of hate crimes since Election Day, according to USA Today.

The Election was stolen – Here's how

Starting in 2013 – just as the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights
Act – a coterie of Trump operatives, under the direction of Kris Kobach,

Americans of color from the voter rolls of GOP-controlled states.

How Donald Trump is leading the transformation to turn the Republican Party into the new KKK

Yeah, I'm dead serious. No, it's not a stretch in the least bit. This is not a conspiracy theory. It's not about what might happen. It's already a done deal. Let me explain. Just weeks before Stephen Bannon was tapped to become the new CEO of Donald Trump's presidential campaign last month, he bragged to Sarah Posner of Mother Jones that Breitbart News, the media company he has led for years, "is the platform for the alt-right."

Jeff Sessions accused of retaliation after claims of racism cost him a judgeship

Donald Trump’s nominee for US attorney general has been accused of bringing criminal prosecutions against a pair of black officials in Alabama as retaliation for their roles in derailing his nomination to be a judge.

'Just racist': EPA cuts will hit black and Hispanic communities the hardest

The racist, discredited argument Trump’s DOJ just made in a federal court

Here’s a  pro tip for the lawyers at Jeff Sessions’ Justice Department: If you  want to defend the president’s efforts to lock people out of the nation  because of their religion, you might not want to rely on discredited Supreme Court decisions enabling a racist backlash. Palmer v. Thompsonis one of the great missteps in the Supreme Court’s often unfortunate history on matters of race. This case centered on the city of Jackson, Mississippi’s operation of five racially segregated public swimming pools. After a court ordered the pools integrated, the city closed the pools rather than operating pools where people of all races could swim. And the Supreme Court, in a 5–4 vote, let Jackson get away with this scheme.

False moral equivalency is not a bug of Trumpism. It’s a feature.

Showing that the remarks he delivered from a White House teleprompter  Monday were hollow and insincere, Trump yesterday revived his initial claim that “both sides” are to blame for the horrific violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend in Charlottesville.
