The Daily GOP Ignominious” Trumpism Spreads (POPULAR VOTE?)

In The Progressive Influence on November 14, 2016 at 3:05 PM

What you are about to see, should you decide to follow the links in the posted paragraph, is a startling indictment of a Constitutional electoral process that is outdated and undemocratic.

Update on the 2016 popular vote (November 14):

President of the United States
AL.com

The latest national vote totals have Clinton at 61,350,758 votes – or 48 percent – compared to Trump’s 60,583,838 or 47 percent. Those totals – a 0.4 percent drop in voter turnout from 2012 – gives the advantage to Clinton by 766,920 even vote counting continues. Clinton’s margin is expected to grow as votes come in from heavily Democratic states, making her the fifth candidate to win the popular vote but lose the election, joining Al Gore in 2000; Andrew Jackson in 1824; Samuel Tilden in 1876; and Grover Cleveland in 1888.

Excerpt 

In his role at Breitbart, he promoted and legitimized the modern white supremacist movement, sometimes euphemistically referred to as the “alt-right.” 

Ben Shapiro, who worked alongside Bannon for four years as Breitbart’s Editor-at-Large, wrote that Bannon “openly embraced the white supremacist alt-right.” According to Shapiro, “Breitbart has become the alt-right go-to website… pushing white ethno-nationalism as a legitimate response to political correctness, and the comment section turning into a cesspool for white supremacist mememakers.” 

Shapiro describes Bannon as “a vindictive, nasty figure, infamous for verbally abusing supposed friends and threatening enemies.” 

Bannon gave a platform to Milo Yiannopoulos, a prominent white nationalist figure who was banned from Twitter for indicting racist abuse and harassment

In March, Yiannapoulos wrote a lengthy article promoting the white nationalist alt-right on Breitbart that made an explicit argument for racial and ethnic segregation: 

The New York Times notes that Breitbart “regularly traffics in racially charged accusations about President Obama, provocative comparisons between abortion providers and Holocaust killers, and contempt for feminism.”

The alt-right’s intellectuals would also argue that culture is inseparable from race. The alt-right believe that some degree of separation between peoples is necessary for a culture to be preserved. A Mosque next to an English street full of houses bearing the flag of St. George, according to alt-righters, is neither an English street nor a Muslim street — separation is necessary for distinctiveness.

Since US elections set the stage for the greater society, the rational person has to think: “We have seen this before.”
