The Republican Party has become a party of hate, of racism, of white supremacy, and Donald Trump is no exception.
The 2016 Republican presidential nominee was right: The world is not a white and Christian land.
The world, as we’ve learned in recent years, is a white supremacist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, and misogynist place.
This is what a Donald Trump presidency means: It means that white supremacy is not only alive and well, but it’s growing and will continue to grow.
The party that Donald Trump has built is a toxic echo chamber, full of white supremacists, white nationalists, bigots, and haters who have a history of spewing hate speech, perpetuating lies, and creating chaos in America.
And that is why it is vitally important that we take to the streets in protest of the hate speech of Donald Trump and his fellow white supremacists.
But it is also important to remember that this is a Republican Party that is in denial about the true scope of the racist, hateful, homophobic and misogynistic hate that we are witnessing.
When the Republican Party fails to take a stand against the racist hate that is rampant in its ranks, it is the party of the alt-right and white supremacists that is failing to act.
The Republican National Committee, as the Republican party, has a responsibility to condemn hate and bigotry and to hold the Trump campaign accountable for its own.
The GOP must act to prevent a Donald Trumps presidency from becoming America’s next white supremacist president.
As the RNC struggles to do this, it must be clear to all of us that the party is not just making excuses for the Trump supporters it will need to keep them in line.
It is actively working to defeat those who are truly our enemy.
And as we look to the next presidential election, we must be honest about the history and scope of this hate, and make the case that the Republican establishment should be fighting for real and meaningful change, rather than a Trump presidency.
