You will never see the media report this
And kids are walking through the hall shouting "white power" in Pennsylvania high schools.
Can I join a Thread somewhere denouncing this racism?
On the eve of the election, I was, like many others, aghast and dismayed
at the election of Donald Trump. I could not fathom the election of this
many who had railed against pretty much every minority group, and
threatened to ignite a trade war in a misguided attempt to bring jobs
back to our shores. He is a person who has a history of being a sexual
predator, who’s temperament and knowledge base clearly disqualifies him
from the presidency and who does not exude the intellectual depth or
level of curiosity to learn and grow into the job .
However, after taking a deep breath and listening to Secretary Clinton’s
gracious concession speech and President Obamas call for acceptance of
the decision and national unity and healing, I decided to take a step
back and say that, rather dwell on his past words and deeds, I would
judge him by what he says and does going forward. I said that I would
chalk much of it up to campaign rhetoric and bluster intended to rally
his base, and reminded myself that he has a history of holding some
liberal and progressive views that may reemerge later.
That rapprochement lasted less than a week. In his first few days as
president elect, he has done the following:
1. Appointed a climate change denier to head the EPA transition team:
Trump names proud climate-science denier to head EPA transition team
2. He has continued to disparage the press and has not allowed them to
accompany him on his plane- defying precedent :
Why A Free Press Really, Really Matters | The Huffington Post
And, by far the worst move……….
3. Appointed a white nationalist as his chief strategist and political
advisor to the administration:
Democrats Decry Bannon Pick: No Place In The White House For A 'White Nationalist' | The Huffington Post
4. Now, he is proposing the hawkish and controversial John Bolton to be
Secretary of State, a nomination that flies in the face of this position
that he has taken on wanting to improve relations with Russia:

5. He is also floating the name of Rudi Giuliani for Secretary of state
which might even be worse:

How can you use the Huffington Post as a source without laughing. You know, the one whose entire staff of young and middle aged women had their picture taken at a diversity seminal. LOL You seem to expect him to:
buy into the same junk science that Obama did.
Support a pro-liberal anti-conservative press by calling it free.
Buy into the demo propaganda against Bannon without actually looking into the reality of the man.
Buy into the fact we should again have a weak Secretary of State ala Clinton.
You should quit reading the Huffington Post and look get your information from a more unbiased source actually based in reality.
The Huffington Post doesn't even have the advantage of being useful in an outhouse.
Kids have been chanting racist slogans in school hallways for months. Why do you only now express concern? I guess it was different when it was tenfold, and the slogan was " black lives matter"... Color me shocked!
Plus, how many of them are doing it as actual white nationalists, as opposed to teenage asshole trolls.
Progressives made themselves vulnerable to trolling when they panic every time someone trolls them.
Give me a break Sparky!! You can't refute a damned thing that is about Bannon so you resort to attacking the source? It's an award winning publication. The NY Times and numerous other news outlets are saying the same things about the creep.
Weak Secretary of State?? Of his two choices, one is Dr, Stragelove and the other is unqualified and unhinged,
Trump wants to curtail freedom of the press and your take on climate science is just stupid
Finally some sanity returning to DC and real leadership emerging.
Right just look at how the transition is going
