Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Today, for Giving Tuesday, a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

At White Supremacist Meeting: Nazi Salutes, Heil Hitler Chants and Celebrations of Trump

HeadlineNov 21, 2016

In Washington, D.C., hundreds of people protested outside of a white nationalist conference in which white supremacists and other members of the “alt-right” movement gathered to celebrate Donald Trump’s victory. The gathering was held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. Inside, white supremacist Richard Spencer, a leader of the alt-right movement, recited Nazi propaganda in original German and said, “America was, until this last generation, a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity.” Multiple people performed the Nazi salute after his speech and chanted “Heil the people! Heil victory!” When asked by The New York Times about Donald Trump, Spencer said, “I do think we have a psychic connection, or you can say a deeper connection, with Donald Trump in a way that we simply do not have with most Republicans.”
