White nationalism took a severe hit — not enough to kill it, but to remind the movement that they are still on the "outs" as far as Americans are concerned.

He refused, even when presented with the opportunity to do so, to denounce white supremacists and call them out for who they truly are: domestic terrorists.

Yes, right here in Not-America. The bomb threat called into the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre in Toronto, which also houses a daycare and a school, is part of a wave of anti-Semitism that has rocked North America in recent weeks.

I'm a white woman who has spent my life advocating for women's rights in Afghanistan. Unapologetic for my lack of shared ethnicity with those I have strived to defend, I've heard an array of logic-bending criticisms, from subtle critiques veiled in the buzzwords of post-modernism, like the suggestion that all development workers inherently occupy a 'hegemonic' position, to less creative and cruder name calling.

We used to embrace moderation in politics through the tried-and-true blueprint of being socially liberal, fiscally conservative. We now have the opportunity to merge these classic beliefs into a new construct of voters who care more about actual societal progress than the fortunes of a singular political party.

Identity politics, long well entrenched in the liberal arts circles of academia, have seemingly broken out of the confines of campus debates and critical theory textbooks, and emerged into the mainstream, suddenly becoming a heated theme in the media.

All told, it's been a bleak day. But don't give up. Resistance isn't futile. If there's one thing that progressives should learn from Trump's election, it is that protest works.
Under wide threat of injustice, supporting one another, regardless of faith is essential. How? By supporting Standing Rock while demanding peace for Syria. By attending multi-faith gatherings at our local synagogue. By marching behind Black activists because Black Lives Matter. By emailing our MP.

The so-called alt-right may soon have their Emperor in the White House, but before they got political to help force Donald Trump into the presidency, the movement was largely focused on fomenting culture wars. So it's hardly a "Luke, I am your father" surprise twist that the alt-right is now targeting "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" (which, by the way, is really, really good.)

The former White House adviser said divisive forces can take root here.
Many Trump supporters on both sides of the border are trying to diminish these hate crimes, dismiss the alt-right and excuse the president-elect. The goal is normalization. But this is more than not normal. It is familiar. And it is contagious. First Brexit, then Trump, and next it could be Front National's racist leader Marine Le Pen in France. Call it alt-right, white supremacy, white nationalism, ethno-nationalism or whatever else you want. It's just Nazi by another name and we must stand up to it because we've seen how this story ends.

Alt-right calls it a coordinated attack on users with certain viewpoints.
There have been many calls to better understand the white working class voter and placing blame on "political correctness" for what Van Jones dubbed on election night "a whitelash." In other words, that the real problem was that we weren't paying enough attention to straight, white people and shouldn't have been calling for diversity, equality and respect. But arguing that if you just didn't challenge straight white male supremacy then they wouldn't have elected a straight white male supremacist is no different than blaming a rape victim for what she wore, or a gay-bashing victim for kissing his boyfriend, or a Jew for wearing a Star of David necklace.

"F*ck these guys. We don't have to stand for this here."
In Hillary Clinton's final speech of this slow-motion car crash of a campaign, she declared that "love trumps hate." Turns out she was wrong. Instead, hate trumped love and so they picked Donald Trump, a vengeful demagogue running on a fear-fueled platform of racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and Islamophobia alongside a running-mate known primarily for his anti-LGBTQ radicalism. Donald Trump is the President Elect of the United States of America.
