David and I have also noticed online the aggressive nature of Trump supporters. We've both had to block people (David on Facebook and me on Twitter) who seem to have this emboldened arrogance and ignorant hate for anyone who doesn't support Trump. For example, I Tweeted the other day to a Trump supporter that he was going to undo gay rights over there (Pence and all) and their answer was denial saying "I didn't see that on the ballot paper". FFS total ignorance.
In the 24 hours since Donald Trump was elected, police departments across the country have been investigating a wave of hate crimes toward Muslims, African Americans, Hispanics, and those in the LGBT community.
Ultimately, it boils down to this: The individuals now openly engaging in or encouraging these racial attacks are simply emulating the new president-elect’s behavior throughout the long and disturbing campaign.
Did anybody seriously think an electoral victory by Trump – the man endorsed by the KKK – would quiet these voices? If they did, they had their head in the sand.
The last few days have proven that what many people, including Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, warned us about prior to this election is actually taking place all across the country. Independent
