Donald Trump’s Campaign Has ‘Reenergized’ the White-Supremacist Internet

New York Magazine, By Jay Hathaway, December 10

Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric is so popular that the best-known white-supremacist site on the web, Stormfront, says it’s installing new servers to handle all the traffic the Republican presidential front-runner has generated.

Talking to Politico, Stormfront founder Don Black said Trump’s campaign had reenergized the white-nationalist movement, and Stormfront has the traffic to prove it. He said Stormfront now sees a million unique visitors a month, and traffic spikes 30 to 40 percent whenever Trump makes a controversial statement about minorities.

“Demoralization has been the biggest enemy and Trump is changing all that,” Black said.

Even David Duke, infamous racist politician and former Ku Klux Klan figurehead, agrees Trump has been great for racist movements.

“He’s made it ok to talk about these incredible concerns of European Americans today,” Duke told Politico.

  • Trump wants a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States …”. I think he’s got it backwards. We should start with a total and complete shutdown of Americans (including military, CIA, other government personnel and civilians) from entering Moslem countries. In fact, we should go even further and immediatly withdraw all our troops, government personnel, civilians and weapons from these countries and close down any bases, government offices and commercial establishments. Why not stop all bombing, drone strikes as well as trade with them? That should serve them right!
