The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has officially designated Donald Trump and his campaign as a hate group. The SPLC defines hate groups as those that “…have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.”
The US isn’t the first to notice Trump’s hateful speech. Britons have launched a campaign to ban Trump from entering the UK over his hate speech violations.
“The signatories believe Donald J Trump should be banned from UK entry for his continued, unrepentant hate speech and unacceptable behaviour. His unacceptable behaviour is well documented, and we feel it foments racial, religious and nationalistic intolerance which should not be welcome in the UK.”
Even US cities are getting on board. St. Petersburg, Florida Mayor, Rick Kriseman, tweeted a response to Trump’s latest vile plan; playing off Trumps own words,
“I am hereby barring Donald Trump from entering St. Petersburg until we fully understand the dangerous threat posed by all Trumps.”
