Trump’s Whisperer-In-Chief Is Treading on Dangerous Ground | Southern Poverty Law Center

Southern Poverty Law Center president Richard Cohen has written a most lucid analysis of the new President’s actions to muzzle free speech and create an alternative reality–or as many of us would recognize, a point of view based on propaganda and “alternative facts.”

Trump’s Whisperer-In-Chief Is Treading on Dangerous Ground | Southern Poverty Law Center

    i wish i could believe
    that those who have
    grown up listening to hateful propaganda
    can ever find anything in their hearts
    but hate 🙂
