"No people ever recognize their dictator in advance. ... When our dictator turns up you can depend on it that he will be one of the boys, and he will stand for everything traditionally American."
— Dorothy Thompson, who interviewed Hitler and was the first American journalist expelled from Nazi Germany
A man yells "Get out of my country" before opening fire on two Indian men, killing one. Another man says "Go back to your own country" before shooting a Sikh man in his driveway. Another attacks two bicyclists, saying "I bet you faggots voted for that bitch Hillary... You live in Trump country now". Yet another attacks a Muslim woman at her work, saying "Trump is here now... He will get rid of all of you".
All that in the first six weeks of Trump's presidency. Those are Trump's people. That's the world they want.
