The Morning After

Alexa and I are going to be taking the temperature of the nation over the next weeks to decide whether we’ll stay. We are Jewish. Though we’re not on the top of the list this time — that dubious honor belongs to the Mexicans and the Muslims — with a president-elect supported by the KKK and the anti-Semitic “alt right,” we’re definitely still on it. We’ve seen as much through Trump supporters going after Jewish journalists on Twitter, calling them kikes, telling them to get ready for the ovens, etc. So we need to see if it will remain safe for us here. Trump’s campaign gave voice to something terrible. My concern is that his election has legitimized it.
