Quote of the Day

When you hear the attacks on "political correctness" this is what they mean.  Don't take my word for it -- listen to a Donald Trump supporter who was just selected to be an official Trump delegate in California.  William Johnson, one of the leaders in the white nationalism movement in California and nationwide, praises Trump for "allowing us to talk about things we've not been able to talk about."  Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, who has endorsed Trump, said, "when we say 'take America back,' we know exactly what that means ... and I think everybody who says that knows what it means."  This is the first and only time I have ever agreed with David Duke, who analysis is spot on here.  Donald Trump's support is not exclusively but largely fueled by the fact that he is a white man who pledges to "make America great again" for many other white men like himself. 

-- Sally Kohn, "Trump maxing out his 'man card'"
