Op-ed: Conservative 'optimism' for Trump normalizes dangerous rhetoric

(11/28/16 10:00pm)

Post-election attitudes have been loud, fear driven and have divided the country more than healed it. Conservatives are attempting to reach out to Clinton supporters across the nation, asking to “Give [Trump] a chance.”This optimism from the right is their attempt to normalize the rhetoric and fear mongering tactics that we were subjected to for a year and a half. Optimism can feed into normalization, and racism, xenophobia, sexism, homophobia and classism are not normal.
