It is difficult even to put into words how much I hate Donald Trump. Because that hatred is combined with fear. He has scapegoated an entire religion (sound familiar?) for the acts of a few radicalised groups. He has implicitly endorsed white supremacy in appointing Steve Bannon as his chief strategist. He has created an environment in America in which people who initially kept their racial biases to themselves feel comfortable expressing them in public, alienating racial minorites and making them feel unsafe to leave their own homes. He has shown rampant misogyny, made comments about sexually assaulting women and imposed restrictions over their reproductive autonomy. If he can do all of these things, who's to say he won't go further? Where will it end? If people and the media keep normalising this behaviour, what else will they normalise? How far can he go? We must resist. We must show people that this is not normal. So long as there is visible dissent, people will question his behaviour. Otherwise there's no telling how his actions might escalate.
