Letter: Violence in Virginia comes as no surprise

Violence in Virginia comes as no surprise

While I am not surprised that President Trump’s election has helped to legitimize and resurrect racism in this country, what’s shocking is that people are dumbfounded by this resurgence. What do they think it means that we have elected a president who has surrounded himself with the likes of Steve Bannon, an avowed white supremacist?

On the afternoon of the Virginia clashes between KKK members and anti-fascist individuals, just look at some of the posts after an early online article in The News. It’s not only Trump that concerns me; it is his followers as well, full of oozing hatred and poorly disguised racism. That’s how fascism in Europe started in the 1930s. Let us hope we are saved from this scourge.
