Despite Trump’s protests to the contrary, white supremacists everywhere are proudly ironing out their white sheets knowing they’ve got a fellow racist in the oval office.
Or just as likely, now emboldened, they are tucking those sheets away in their racist closet closets as there is no need to hide beneath those snowy white sheets of hate anymore.
Is this how we celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King?
Heartened by our racist in chief who has given a wink and a nod to the darkest elements on our society, white nationalists have been crawling out from beneath the rocks where they’ve been hiding to bask in the sooty air.
Make America White Again
Presidents Trump’s vile and racist comments against accepting immigrants from what he called shithole countries in Central America, Africa, and the Caribbean arguing instead for more immigrants from countries like whiter than white Norway, left neo Nazis like David Duke in a state of sheer giddiness. Trump’s not so quiet dog whistle signaled to hateful people that their views are gaining a foothold in this country.
The browning of America scares Donald-I-know-the-best-words-Trump sh*tless as it does to his base and all other “real” Americans.
As white nationalists celebrate Trumps shithole comments claiming he’s on the same page as them, the rest of us have long turned that old and deeply soiled page of hate, never to return.
That is how we honor Dr King.
