Terrifying: White Nationalists Nazi Salute President-Elect Trump
As if this election wasn’t terrifying enough, it’s becoming more and more clear that white supremacists are backing Trump.
According to The Atlantic, on Saturday, over 200 racist nationalists gathered at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C., for the annual conference of the National Policy Institute—and some threw out a Nazi Salute. The conference states that they are “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States, and around the world.”
The problematic hand gesture was started by Richard B. Spencer, who started the Alt-Right , a racist movement that finds itself as “a new society, an ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans,” and has called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing.”
During the event he said: “America was until this past generation a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity. It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us.”

Nearly 1,000 People Run With Autistic Boy After Quitting Team Over Attack
This past weekend, nearly 1,000 people came to Syracuse to show autistic runner Chase Coleman support.
According to Syracuse.Com, after being attacked earlier this month, supporters dressed in white shirts with “Run with Chase” to show their love for the 15-year-old cross country runner.
“There’s one mean person,” Clarise Coleman, the teen’s mom said. “But there are thousands of thousands of nice people.“
“It just started out as his coach saying, ‘We just want to take him for a run,'” she said. “It turned into an explosion of kindness, and we are so grateful for that.“
This comes over a month ago when Martin MacDonald stepped out of his car and pushed Chase to the ground during a cross country race in Rochester. MacDonald told police he was afraid Chase — who was wearing his maroon Syracuse West uniform — was going to mug his wife, the news site noted.
