At a recent rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, President Trump called the Democrats, “an angry left-wing mob,” who are “too dangerous to govern.” This was only days after flyers from the white supremacist website The Daily Stormer were found on college campuses in California and New York and across Des Moines, Iowa, including on the window of our local affiliate, Interfaith Alliance of Iowa. 

The flyers weaponize the claim of the president and Republicans that legitimate opposition to the nomination of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a “mob” made up of protestors paid by philanthropist George Soros, a not-so-thinly-veiled bit of anti-Semitism.

Trump’s love for spreading hate and fear is emboldening groups across the country to lash out at the most vulnerable groups in our society. This type of hate must not become entrenched or allowed to flourish in this country.

Tell Trump: End the dangerous rhetoric now.
