Skip to comments.Hate unleashed-How Donald Trump unleashed the Rightwing bigots that the GOP once kept under control

There has been a lot of talk over this presidential campaign about the lack of enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton compared with the excitement and energy among Donald Trumps followers. It is a bit overblown; there are plenty of highly enthusiastic Clinton fans who are very excited to see the first woman president.
But it is nonetheless true that Trump has inspired a group of remarkably passionate and committed followers. And while many of these people have legitimate economic gripes that are finding expression in Trumps angry outsider populism, what electrifies many of them is something else entirely.
They chant, Build that wall! and Lock her up! They cheer wildly when Trump says he will ban Muslims and send refugees back where they came from. They catcall the media and shove and hit protesters while Trump cheers them on from the stage. They enthusiastically endorse his promise to torture terrorist suspects and take out their families and cheerfully back his calls to let the police take the gloves off to restore law and order. They wear overtly misogynist T-shirts that say Trump That Bitch and Hillary Sucks, But Not Like Monica. (A new slogan has recently been added to the collection: I wish Hillary had married O.J.)
Outside Trump rallies, where Confederate flags are commonly displayed and sold, videos show that people are worked up, energized, febrile. Reporters overhear snippets of conversation like You cant trust Latinos. Some maybe, but not most, Immigrants arent people, honey and You know them crazy black girls, how they are. Something feral and undomesticated has been set free.

Salon is trying to radicalize the center left to hate the rest of America. Either you are a left wing social justice warrior for Hillary, or you are beyond contempt. And that is, in itself, bigotry on steroids.
....And they are failing.
Makes me feel deplorable. I am fine with that.
Polling internals must have them ordering Depends by the caseload.
Aw geez back to racist again. Salon really needs some new material.
Yes, I have come to hate the left wingers. They offer nothing but suffering to me.
Do an image search of Heather Digby and it all makes sense...
it STILL (!) amazes me.. just how they can keep printing this kind of BS
having almost Zero connection with reality
(and its Obama that’s unleashed a lot of hate in America, Obama and his financial backers who are paying for it)
Kind of funny that Trump wasn’t a Racist until June 2015 and all his Liberal Friends at the time weren’t considered Racist’s either.
Hillary has made it acceptable that her supporters beat up Trump supporters and kill them if need be. That is the new normal. The Nazis come from Hillary not Trump.
Fascist liberal projection. Plain, simple and on full display in all of its glory.
Headline should actually be: How Donald Trump Unleashed and Exposed Liberal Fascism
Yep, Salon’s hate fest against the right.
What about Communist party endorsing Hillary ?
Yikes! Garth’s sister.
What a basket of deplorable distortions....
Hate was unleashed the moment Trump chose to run for office.
He didn’t start it. The Left and his detractors supposedly from the Right, unleashed it immediately and haven’t stepped back from it since.
Trump will drag them one and all kicking and screaming into the 21st Century, the first one to successfully lead this nation since Reagan.
Happy trails losers...
Mutatis mutandis, this does look a fair amount like the way lefty groups carry on... and they can’t imagine any other mind pattern so they accuse Donald of the same dirt they are carrying on.
Donald is actually much more measured about it.
