Since 2014, over 80 people have been killed in the United States of America by Right-wing terrorists. In 2016 Donald Trump was elected President of the United States and received substantial support from White nationalists. This book explains the increase in violent White nationalism and Trump's ascendancy in the context of the backlash against the presidency of Barack Obama. It demonstrates how there is a dynamic relationship between the Republican Party, various Right-wing populist movements, and the Right. Far Right social movements, political campaigns and the online presence of the so-called 'alt-Right' are all discussed. The book argues that unfair hierarchies of race, gender, and class are not aberrational tremors in America, but the fracturing bedrock of a nation in which being White, male, Christian, or straight no longer ensures a stable floor for power, status, or privilege. This is vital reading for students, researchers, and activists interested in American politics and the dangers of Right-wing movements and political parties.

    Donald Trump announced his campaign for the Presidential nomination of the Republican Party on June 16, 2015. The business mogul mobilized a huge, angry constituency that was overwhelmingly white. They were attracted to Trump's campaign slogan of "Make America Great Again." Great again for whom? Trump's campaign was marked by his vicious and inflammatory rhetoric infused with white racism, misogyny, Islamophobia, and anti-immigrant xenophobia. The next day In Charleston, South Carolina an angry young white man walked into a Bible study at a traditionally Black church. After sitting quietly for a few minutes Dylann Roof pulled out a handgun and allegedly shot three black people dead leaving others wounded. Roof told a participant in the Bible study, "I have to do it. You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go." This book will place Donald Trump and Dylann Roof in the context of the backlash against the presidency of Barack Obama and the resulting 2016 campaign for the presidency in which Donald Trump became ascendant. It will explain how there is a dynamic relationship between the Republican Party, various right-wing populist movements, and the extreme right. It will argue that unfair hierarchies of race, gender, and class are not aberrational tremors in America, but the fracturing bedrock of a nation in which being White, male, Christian, or straight no longer ensures a stable floor for power, status, or privilege.
