Trump and the Alt Right––The Politics of Hate

The Alt Right will not crawl away and hide after this election. If the Republicans hold onto a majority in Congress they will have much greater power.

The Guardian reports on the right wing patriot movement's big recruiting year. They thank Trump.

The groundwork is being laid for Trump’s post-defeat power center as a right-wing hate-media star

Reported by the Financial Times.

The Daily Beast reports on GOP ads in Arizona threatening voters.

Even the moderate Republicans [sic] are saying Democratic presidents should not be allowed to nominate Supreme Court Justices.

NPR reports on John McCain's promise to block all SCOTUS nominations by President Hillary Clinton.

A newspaper that hadn’t endorsed a Democrat for president in over a century endorsed Hillary, and then came the death threats

USAToday reports on the death threats received by the Arizona Republic and how they responded.

I have a feeling that the Alt Right takes great comfort from the knowledge that Hitler lost several elections before he gained power. (I didn’t introduce the Hitler comparison, the Alt Right did.)
