The Grand Ol Party (GOP) has come to the time of truth.
Since the days of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the party via Richard Nixon and Kevin Phillips has metastasized into a political movement with 40% of its members assimilating to overt bigotry and racism. The evolution was without question was further promulgated and nurtured via Ronald Reagan and Lee Atwater. Despite overwhelming numbers of African-Americans living in traditional southern states, the GOP has an iron-clad grip on the entirety of the US south as a dedicated voting bloc.
Donald Trump is the existential Frankenstein Monster who has provided a mouth for undercurrents of racism which has bred unchecked in many white Americans. It took less than on week for major swaths of white Americans to affix to the bloviating monster like a magnet and steel shrouds after Trump declared "Mexicans are rapists, murders and they take our jobs."
From outright attention garnering racism against Mexicans and his phantom "high wall" on the southern border to mere suggestions of a ban against Muslims entering the US to turn the flame of conservative racism to the inferno of Trumpism.
Numerous reports of Trump's strong support among American white supremacist has become so common print media has ceased to develop print stories. electronic media flirts with stories from time to time, but fails to fully develop a growing constituency of people who hate based solely on culture, race, ethnicity, and religions. Yes, you Catholics and Jews recognize Trump's Nazi sympathizers also hate you and your faith. Even PBS this week broadcast a PBS News Hour report on a North Carolina family who fully supports Trump without any members of its broadcast team noticing the family was laden with tattoos depicting Nazism.

PBS's failure to flag the obvious tattooing was either an egregious journalistic flop or PBS managers and producers actually recognized the brandishing of hate and decided to publish for effect.
White supremacist affinity for Trump should not surprise. Trump's rhetoric so reminds of Germany in the mid-1930s I often run across clear and concise analogies.
A nascent example of such an analogy is garner favor on the Facebook page of Matthews Heimbach;s White Student Union. The linked video is a great exhibition of Trump's behavioral and oratory proximity to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels. Heimbach or a Facebook page Admin unabashedly posted the video and addressed the extent to which the video supports their cause.
Donald Trump can offer perfunctory statement against white supremacists support for his GOP candidacy, but the record is clear and irrefutable.
