    What were seeing is a bit different though. Social media was around prior to Trump. People are more emboldened now because of how he and his subordinates behaved during the campaign, and then winning the election validated that in their minds. I know this because I work with some of them. They didn't speak about this stuff just a couple of years ago. It's changed.
    True but he does exactly what social media does, allows these people to see others who think like they do and they can come out of the shadows. Prior they either had to live in a town with others who felt like they did or they lived in the closet about their feelings. Now they let it all out and let everyone see. As someone said, sunlight is the best disinfectant.

    Other than being a figment in the imagination of so many liberals?

    Who is going around the Country beating the hell out of Americans for practicing their Free Speech Rights?

    That would be the leftist group Antifa.

    Who is calling for and getting the murders of innocent white people and LEO's?

    That would be Black Lies Matter.

    The racist groups on the left are far more dangerous.

    Who cares what a bunch of nazi wannabes think.

    They have no power, they have no voting block, they have no numbers ......

    They exist solely in the weak minds of liberals.
    Actually antifa is the ones with no power. They are anarchists. There has never been an anarchist elected to the Congress of the United States or to a governorship or to a mayoralty or even to a statehouse seat. We have had many white racists in elected office, and have a president who dogwhistled racists and retweeted white supremacist comments all through the election. We also have tens of millions of white racists in this country,--- compared to how many anarchists? A relative handful at best.

    In a Gallup poll a few years ago, 58% of Americans identified themselves as having racial prejudice. That translates into tens of millions of white racists.

    LOL - from a person whose favorite site is Breitbart - home to the alt-right.

    Still won't comment on if "Jews will not replace us" is hate speech or not?

    All the racist violent extremist groups are the same.

    They are are real clear and present danger to the American people ..... not some imaginary WN group that the fake news MSM has the sheeple parroting about.
    So you are arguing that racists are emboldened by Trump.

    Sure hope you voted that way else you'll be a hypocrite yet again.

    Black Nationalists are hot on their heels. I would say that they are all rising. Well, I don't say it, the Southern Poverty Law Center does. All hate groups are on the rise.
