Dear Media: Please Stop Normalizing The Alt-Right:
The web, social media and Public Radio are loaded with references to "White Supremacists" Alt-right, antisemitism, etc -- all Trumps fault don't ya know!
If anyone ever cared to look on the left, they could cover Nation of Islam, Black Panthers, some fo the seamier parts of Black Lives Matter ("Pigs in a blanket, frey em like bacon!"), Socialists, Communists, Anarchists, and on and on -- finding all manner of rancid screeds against Jews, whites, America, Christians, etc -- hell, you can pretty much go to a Democrat convention and get the screeds against America and the Christians!
While the MSM attempt to smear Trump by association here is absolutely transparent (smearing Trump will be an ongoing media theme), what might not be as patently obvious is the degree to which this attention normalizes / legitimizes these groups. Which, I'd have to guess is absolutely FINE with the MSM and the left at this point. They hope against hope that some of these groups do some NASTY things that they can promptly blame Trump for!
They have been pining away for years hoping for "right wing gun violence" -- if anything comes close to it they go prematurely ape over it -- when the gay nightclub shooter turned out to be MUSLIM of all things their depression was extreme.
If ONLY they could incite some "white supremacists" covered in acne and living in their parents basements to do SOMETHING violent! Damn, they might have to cut off their video games to get them out of the house!
I remember back after BO was elected, the many columns that needed to be written about how brave he was and the near certainty that he would be assassinated by the "racists". Back then, the nation had just elected a black president, but many had NOT voted for him, so were obviously RACIST!! How else could you disagree with closing Gitmo on day 1, stopping the wars, saving everyone $2,500 on health insurance each year with no loss of service, and powering the country on unicorn farts?
While the Federalist thinks they are giving all this attention to the fringe groups and not realizing that they are the ones strengthening them, my guess is that they know EXACTLY what they are doing.
They hope against hope that they can instigate major growth in racist groups and blame it on Trump -- they would see some good old fashioned violence as sauce for the goose.
