It’s already happening.
President-elect Trump has begun his appointments and if there were any doubts that he is planning to implement a platform of racism and intolerance, all you need to do is look at his choice for Chief Strategist.
Steve Bannon, recently named to the position, has been called everything from a white nationalist to an anti-Semite. Bannon is the founder of the alt-right website Breitbart which the Southern Poverty Law Center called out earlier this year:
“…The outlet has undergone a noticeable shift toward embracing ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right. Racist ideas. Race-baiting ideas. Anti-Muslim and anti-Immigrant ideas –– all key tenants making up an emerging racist ideology known as the ‘Alt-Right.’” – Southern Poverty Law Center
So What can you do?
Call Rep. Tom Marino (DC Office: 202-225-3731) and Rep. Lou Barletta (DC Office: 202-225-6511), both of whom have been appointed to Trump’s transition team, and voice your outrage over this appointment.
- You are opposed to the appointment of Steve Bannon as Chief Analyst;
- The President must represent all Americans and Bannon’s racist views should not be tolerated;
- This is an important position that has a great deal of influence on the administration’s policy. Bannon is not a suitable candidate.
- Stand up for your constituents and demand that Bannon be removed from his team.
The call will take just a few moments but will have a tremendous impact. Share a personal story of why this is important to you.
Share any feedback you may have received from the call.
Thank you! You are already making a difference!
