R&P – Charlottesville, Exodus, and the Politics of Nostalgia

„Charlottesville made clear that white nationalists see Donald Trump as their savior. Former KKK leader, David Duke confirmed the linkage: “We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what we believed in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back.” Reclaiming the country for white Christians has long been the not so subtle subtext of “Make America Great Again.”

Trump’s unwillingness to condemn purveyors of racial hatred, without also condemning protesters against that hatred, made clear that “Make America Great Again” is not only a tribalist cry against the diversity of America today, but also a willful erasure and literal whitewashing of American history.”
