The Fascist Orange Monster only got elected last week and already America is unravelling at rapid pace. 

Swastikas and Nazi slogans scrawled on a Philadelphia storefront, xenophobic chants at a New York high school, threatening letters in the mail, insults on college campuses: reports like these have proliferated since November 8.

“I have a scarf on. Passed by someone on the platform today and he says, ‘Your time’s up, girlie’,” journalist Mehreen Kasana wrote on her Twitter account.

Hispanics – the target of Trump’s most incendiary anti-immigrant rhetoric during the campaign – appear particularly vulnerable, as the Southern Poverty Law Centre (SPLC) noted in tracking the rise of harassment of minorities.

Asked about the outbreaks of anti-Muslim, anti-Hispanic bullying, Trump said in a CBS interview aired on Monday that he was “saddened to hear that”, adding it was “a very small amount”. “If it helps, I will say this and I’ll say it right to the cameras. Stop it,” he said.

A teacher in Washington state told the SPLC, a non-profit that monitors the activities of hate groups in the US or school abuse. “‘Build a wall’ was chanted in the school cafeteria at lunch. ‘If you aren’t born here, pack your bags’ was shouted in my own classroom. ‘Get out spic’ was said in our halls.”
