Can we just say racist!!

On MSNBC the talking heads were talking about his main supporters being the alt-right. And it pissed me off. But then I realize we do the same thing here.

We cannot make the press use the most accurate description of these people. But on DU we should call them what they are. If you must use Alt right, at least put racist in parentheses.

Rant over. Have a nice evening.
