Here are 10 reasons why Trump’s win is ‘white supremacy’s last stand in America’
Political commentator Danielle Moodie-Mills doesn’t believe sexism played as large a role in Hillary Clinton’s tragic loss as most progressive pundits have claimed.
“I do not believe that this is people saying, I couldn’t possibly have a woman in this role,” Mills told CBC News following Trump’s big win.
“This is so much bigger than that,” she continued. “…and I will say it because I have literally nothing left to lose tonight.. this is literally white supremacy’s last stand in America.”
Mills explained what that looks like, referencing infamous incidents from the Trump campaign as well as the far-right’s inexcusable agenda:
1. “This looks like black people being pushed out of rallies…”
2. “a young boy with cerebral palsy…having his wheelchair kicked and being brought to the front of the line…”
3. “gerrymandering and redistricting who can vote and who can’t vote…”
4. “closing polls early” and then suing districts for keeping polls open…
5. “the Supreme Court gutting the Voting Rights Act…”
6. acknowledging how “the system was rigged for [the white working-class] to succeed.”
7. subjecting others to a “hatred on a level that we have not seen since Jim Crow…”
8. caring more about Clinton’s likability than “how deep our hatred was…”
9. letting “the Tea Party weasel their way into Congress… into the governorships [without] conversation…”
