    Are racist and others more emboldened because of Trump.

    just your gut feeling. We had the march in Charlottesville where white nationalist marched openly, without any attempt to conceal their identity. It was one of the biggest marches this nation has seen since the KKK were in their prime. Even then, the KKK hid their faces. There has also been an increase in racial incidents since Trump was elected , according to some reports.

    The campaign language of the man who would become president sparks hate violence, bullying, before and after the election

    That's among those whom are easily identified as having racial animus towards people of color. But, what about those among us who aren't so easily identified? People who have felt disenfranchised , anxious, resentful, or insecure by the shifting demographics away from a majority white nation in America. Even though, they aren't quite as vocal as white nationalist or other white supremacist groups. Are they now more inclined to express those sorts of beliefs openly, since Trump's election? Or, more inclined to push back on even legitimate claims of racism if they perceive it as benefiting themselves?

    What about them?

    Where are they?

    Who are they?

    What power do they have?

    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.

    This is just my opinion here, but it seems people are more emboldened in general to say or do whatever comes to mind. Lack of inhibition has become the norm, and it goes beyond issues of race.

    Yeah the people yelling blood and soil in Charlotte were on the left, NOT. The guy that ran over the lady protestor on purpose was on the left, NOT. You are on a roll of getting things wrong aren't you John?

    Steve Banon and Stephen Miller to name two. One was advising the President and one still is advising him in the West Wing. Just two of many Trump friends that are purely white nationalists hiding behind false equivalencies with groups that protest hate in all forms. Those are the two men that spring to mind but there are loads more among the Trump supporters. You have to be blind dude or just hypnotized by the cult of Trump.

    The violence is clearly coming from the leftist groups and has been for some time.

    Occupy Wall Street, Black Lies Matter, now the rise of Antifa ......

    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.
