A weird, difficult, and disturbing year

A new message from your friends at People For the American Way. *********************** Anne-- Thank you again for your unwavering support in the face of an unprecedented number of challenges from the Far Right.

RWW 2017 in Review

Anne--

Thank you again for your unwavering support in the face of an unprecedented number of challenges from the Far Right. We’re familiar with those challenges, as well as the rising trends and influencers in the Right Wing movement, because at PFAW -- through our Right Wing Watch -- we watch the Right (very closely) so you don’t have to.

Well, 2017 has been quite the year. Donald Trump moved into the White House, bringing the Religious Right with him, launching the white supremacist “alt-right” to national prominence, and undoing years of progress. PFAW’s Right Wing Watch has tracked all of it -- from the declaration that Trump’s election was a miracle to Nazis storming Charlottesville with tiki torches.

Poisonous movements took hold of our national conversation and threatened American values in new and insidious ways. And many of those threats are from the White House itself, coming from the president, Religious Right darling Vice President Mike Pence, and white nationalists who serve as advisors.

Check out our year in review posts on some of the big things that happened within the Right Wing movement this year and how the extreme Right embraced Trump:

Despite Trump’s promises that he would be "friendly" to the LGBTQ community he actually took many anti-LGBTQ actions this year -- read more about how Trump launched an assault on the LGBTQ community this year>>

This year the Religious Right had unprecedented access to the president and his advisors -- read more about how the Religious Right moved into the White House.

With the "alt-right" central to the national conversation their movement experienced angst and fractures. Read about the infighting and micro-movements that popped up since Trump took office.

And Trump declared that this year we’re saying "Merry Christmas" again… so check out some items that were on the Right’s Christmas list (like an “Everyone Who Hates Me Is Ugly” t-shirt).

Watch our recap video over at Right Wing Watch to look back on more of what the far-right was up to this year...
