Growing world wide right wing extremism kicking in nicely.

With even mainstream politicians now happily spouting islamaphobic views, this is the inevitable consequence.

Plays into the hands of islamic terrorists that there is a "war" between the west and Islam. What the terrorists want is chaos and fear because that is their most effective weapon.

Trumps right wing racist views are giving these people a platform which they are not slow in grabbing, an awful thing to happen anywhere and I think Trumps hate speech is a lot to do with it.

well its been reported that the shooter said that Trump "is a symbol of renewed white identity" and minutes after Trump tweeted a link to Breitbart who have been accused of spreading anti muslim conspiracy theories, and I don't think anyone can argue they are right wing fascists.

Trump has enabled a level of hate speech globally.
You've only to look at our own country to see it.
Boris' bullsh*t is just one high profile example.
