Not My President? Not My Values!

In the first week of President-Elect Trump here in America, there have been over 200 incidents of hate crimes recorded in our country (as reported by the Southern Poverty Law Center). As protests continue in most major cities under the banner of Not My President, racial and sexist tensions have grown to a fever pitch.  While the chant of "sore losers" goes on from the alt-right, the liberal-minded find ourselves dumbfounded by the lack of understanding amidst smug celebration.  The quiet underbelly of conservative values is the embodiment of centuries-old racism and sexism.  Not all Trump supporters condone or advocate the actions of folks birthed from this swamp.  However, they don't condemn them either, nor does their Lord and Savior of all which is white pride.  Trump's "win" has seemingly opened the door for many of his followers who feel they have "won" the right to not just be openly prejudice, sexist and xenophobic but to also channel this hatred into acts of violence and civil rights abuse.
