Daryle Lamont Jenkins, Executive Director of One People’s Project will join others to discuss how to deal with hate groups that are feeling some sort of momentum with Donald Trump in the White House. He and others who were there in Charlottesville, Va. on Aug. 12 will be there to give there perspectives on that particular day and how we can build the opposition against fascism even more in its wake. This is co-sponsored by Co-sponsored by the Islamic Society of Delaware (ISD) and YWCA Delaware.
We are learning that Donald Trump is planning a visit to the U.K. so he can open the new US Embassy and Britain First folks – the neo-Fascist group that saw headlines after Trump saw fit to retweet some of their propaganda – are coming out to show their support for them. Well, they are going to have company. A few folks who don’t like Trump – and damn sure don’t like Britain First will be there too, and they are going to be particularly loud about that opposition. We are sure Britain First will be none too pleased, but they won’t be voicing their displeasure in a tweet since Twitter canned their account.
UPDATE: After hearing that there was going to be massive opposition to his visit, Trump decided to cancel the trip. But he couldn’t say it was because Londoners didn’t want him there in the first place. Instead, he tweeted this:
Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!

And by the way, it was actually George W. Bush that signed off on it.
