For months now, experts have warned us that Donald Trump’s political successes would embolden the worst elements in American society—bigots, xenophobes, and racists, who have latched on to this election as a means to bring their hatred out from the country’s slimy underbelly.
On Tuesday night, that underbelly burst into the open.
For proof of the dangerous path Trump’s election has put us on, meet Matt Enright, whose neighbors celebrated Trump’s victory with some, uh, enthusiastic shouting—all of which he captured on video, and uploaded to Facebook late Tuesday evening.
In case you couldn’t tell, that’s “Sieg Heil ” they’re shouting. You know, the Nazi salute.
This isn’t, in fact, the first time a Trump supporter has been caught Heil-ing. During a December 2015 campaign rally in Las Vegas, a Trump fan was caught yelling the infamous Nazi greeting as a black protester was swarmed and removed from the event.
I have reached out to Enright for more information regarding his neighbors, and will update this post if and when he responds.
