"Unless Trump makes a major statement denouncing the white nationalist movement, it will become so powerful that even he won't be able to stop it. White ethno-centrism -- in which only white Europeans are considered the right inheritors of this country and Jews,blacks, Muslims etc. should be "conquered" -- is extremely dangerous to every one of us. This is not Germany in the 1930s. It is the United States today. Google this. Learn about it. Join whatever organization you feel moved to join, that stands for the American values the white nationalist movement would override. And no matter what, do not see this as a joke because it is not.
