Meanwhile, in blue states that are supposedly safe from Trump...
Local Islamic leaders are asking for increased police protection after at least three California mosques received a letter that threatens Muslims and praises President-Elect Donald Trump.
Over the past several days, Islamic centers in Long Beach, Claremont and San Jose all received the same photocopy of a handwritten letter addressed to “the Children of Satan.” The letter calls Muslims “vile,” “filthy” and “evil.” It then states that Trump – who, during his campaign, proposed making Muslims register and blocking people of faith from entering the country – is going to “cleanse America.”
“He’s going to do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews,” the letter reads. “You Muslims would be wise to pack your bags and get out of Dodge.”
The letter is signed “Americans for a Better Way.”
It’s the latest in a series of incidents targeting Muslims and other minority groups since the Nov. 8 election.
Just another reminder for the "Hey let's secede cause we're California!" folks: by the time all the votes are counted in the Golden State, Trump will have ended up with more than four million votes. That's about the entire population of Oklahoma or the entire number of voters that turned out in Virginia. In fact, those voters would have been enough to win any other Clinton state in the country by themselves, including New York.
So there are plenty of Trumpsters in California. At no point should anyone think that the state "seceding" will solve problems like the above, so let's knock that "Calexit" talk off, shall we?
